Akshay Bhatia WITB (January 2024) and also a Sneak Peak at his new Potential Ai-Smoke Max D gamer

Ball: Chrome Tour 24

“I LOVED the CSX LS. I’m a high spin player, and that ball put my whole bag in a really nice pocket…the only wish I had was for it to “feel” softer and spin more around the greens….Hello Chrome TOUR. Wish granted;)”

-Akshay Bhatia

Ai-Smoke Max D (Testing)

At the Amex Championship, Akshay began testing a new Paradym Ai-Smoke Max D with Performance Rep Johnny Thompson. Some may think that since it is a draw-biased head, it would be designated to higher handicaps. That is not the case. The Max D is a FAST, stable profile that sits more upright for players wanting a left-start line. In the case of players like Akshay and Alex Noren, who hit what we would call PULL/Hold CUTS, the Max D is superb because in N/-2, the player can swing hard left with little fear of the ball starting too far to the right, and even more on a really tight left of center start line. EVEN with the face cranked open 2 degrees.

Do you want a power fade machine? This is the one.

And yes, if you wanna hit tight draws all day, it does that at an elite level, too. This head is incredible.

“As easy as it is to draw, it actually aligns really well for the “pull cutters” like Noren and Akshay.  We are close with Akshay on this model as it mimics the start and fall lines of Rogue ST Max LS (which we had nothing in Paradym).  This driver starts in the most left window of our offerings.”
