I have one, too. It's a Paradym 'Tour' and it was tour issue only. The new AI Smoke Max is supposed to be the newer version of it.

I have noticed people tend to cover the TC serial numbers, is that to protect where it came from?

I guess. I think it's just one of those internet things like someone saw one person do it and now everyone does it. I dont think Callaway cares where the heads go once theyre gone and customer service can't even look up TC serials.

I asked Jason Finley about TC heads over a few Vodka's and he said there was no difference a regular person could tell. But it is neat to have a head that is basically perfect, once upon a time that was all I wanted and bought.

Now I'm too old and slow to care, so regular stuff does the job.

Ask Jason to remove the alignment logo on the crown. Love how the TD doesn't have one and would love to see that implemented on all models... willing to pay for a drink to get the message to him LOL

My interaction with him was quite a few years ago and he had nothing to do with club design (golf balls are his area or was).

This was back when the Original Zoo crew was together and Harry Arnett was runiing the show., my limited involvement with them was at small Golf Events. I certainly do not have them on speed dial.

The new drivers have the AI face and do not have jailbreak though.   Reviews have been excellent.  I am not a Callaway guy, but probably about to be.  😂

The potential release info was in the comments of Wunders AMA from friday. I have been holding off on an AI smoke TD purchase to see if the TD max was truly being released. Coming here to see if any other callaway insiders know of more information?

Can one of you guys please point me in the direction of a weight set for the Smoke Max driver?  I looked on the Callaway site and can't find anything, did a google search and it basically brought up a bunch of driver reviews.  My brother needs some front weights

if you are ok with going the ebay route, you can find 'em there as they are the same weights (size-wise) that went into the paradym and prior models.   Iirc, the majority of the ebay ads mention weights for the epic line of drivers.   I have some that work great and are black which look great if that matters to you.

I just got a couple of the new blue weights off of the Bay. Took a little longer than normal, must've came right out of China. Fit well and weight is correct. I've had good luck with the weights from eBay.
