Callaway Mavrik Irons for sale
You expect the third to be a middle child, somewhere between the other two, if there are three iron units in a family, one called MAX and another Pro. You would be wrong in the case of the Callaway MAVRIK irons. These irons all have their own personality, with more distance than either brother and so much forgiveness that they almost swing.
From the MAVRIK Pro irons [review HERE] to the standard MAVRIK, the step up in size is significant. There is a lot of offset and a very thick top line in these irons. These irons are very close to the MAVRIK MAX iron at the address.[Review HERE In the bag, the standard and MAX iron are almost identical. The MAX sole is broader, but the cavity is the same. There are only two orange signature stripes, but that’s enough to give some character to the cavity.
In order to get the feeling that the Callaway MAVRIK irons are fast, you don’t need to see ball flight or launch monitor numbers. Centered impact feels crisp with a slightly loud impact sound that screams “speed.” What surprised me about these irons, especially given the forgiveness I’m going to talk about soon, is how much feedback they provide. When you mishit the ball, the MAVRIK irons do not lie to you. It does not feel or sound good to strike the ball on the heel or toe, which, in my opinion, is as it should be.
“The ease of use is stupid.” I know it’s easy to roll your eyes at all the buzzwords that OEMs throw around-I do it too-but the tech adds up to something very real-great distance and forgiveness in the case of the MAVRIK iron. For me, the regular MAVRIK was the longest and most consistent of the three MAVRIK irons. Without the occasional lengthy outliers, Mishits went a long way-I hit a shot 155 yards evidently off the hosel-and pure shots all went the same pace.
All this success comes courtesy of two main innovations. The headliner is the Flash Face Cup Technology-each iron face is uniquely engineered to optimize ball speed by artificial intelligence. This is coupled with the Tungsten Energy Backbone of Callaway to dial in the center of gravity to maximize launch and spin. The MAVRIK irons vary in two major ways from the MAVRIK MAX irons. First, in the set, the MAVRIK has stronger lofts-2 to 3 degrees stronger.
It will imply a little more ball velocity, lower launch, and less spin for others. In the short and mid iron, this can imply more distance, yet in the long iron, it will cause gapping problems. Be sure to get fit. The other key distinction is that the MAVRIK does not have the MAVRIK MAX ‘s heavy draw preference. Due to the offset, the MAVRIK prefers a draw, but fades and cuts are still in play.
2020 Callaway Mavrik Iron Review
By Connor Dillon, Club Fitter Callaway has launched its latest range of Mavrik Irons in its annual hunt to provide optimum performance for any golfer. Instead of attempting to create one iron that suits a large variety of golfers, Mavrik, Mavrik MAX, and Mavrik Pro have opted to develop three separate versions. In order to meet the purposes of multiple types of players, both share the same technology, albeit with minor variations in configuration. They use Callaway ‘s Flash-Cup Artificial Intelligence face engineered to improve ball speeds over a wider portion of the face, tungsten infused weights place CG (center of gravity) to facilitate both further forgiveness and greater launch, and proprietary urethane microspheres for exceptional face sensation.
In this post, I will look at how each model works differently and how each model gains. For purposes of accuracy, in each model with an Elevate 105 g steel shaft (mid trajectory), std weight, and std lie, I measured a 7 iron. The first iron I tried, Mavrik, was built with pace and distance as a focus. I used Pinnacle Gold range balls and took an average of around 6 shots per club with outliers excluded as determined by Trackman. Head form, offset, and top line thickness are identical to Callaway ‘s previous game enhancing irons (e.g. Rogue and Steelhead XR); but, the loft is considerably heavier.
This 7-iron reminds me, for good cause, of a 5-iron from years ago. In the “distance / game-improvement” range, it has a mere 27 ° loft, significantly higher than even most recent irons. I could hardly wait to see what kind of reach and velocity these bombers could give me. My findings are as follows: Club Club Speed Ball Speed Smash Factor Launch Angle Spin Rate Apex Land Angle Carry DistanceMavrik 7-iron 88.9 mph 125.5 mph 1.41 ratio 16.9 degrees 4900 rpm 101 feet 46.0 degrees 189.2 ydsAfter my first attempt, I realized what any golfer would know without even looking at the data-this iron is LONG! With a missile-like piercing trajectory and apparently sufficient peak trajectory, the ball bounced off the face.
My initial findings were verified upon reviewing the results. At 88.9 mph club-head pace, this Mavrik 7 iron developed 125.5 mph of ball velocity, equating to an outstanding 1.41 smash factor ratio. The Smash factor tests the efficacy of converting club speed into ball speed and a decent 7 iron smash factor is between 1.35 and 1.40. The apex (peak height) and landing angle are the other notable data points. It becomes more challenging to keep greens if the landing angle becomes too short, usually less than 45 ° for average golf conditions in Michigan. Any golfer realizes how difficult it is to drive an iron perfectly right at the target only to see it hit the green and rebound into a threat.
A landing angle greater than 45 ° would assist to guarantee that this does not happen to you, because the apex is what helps establish the optimal angle of landing. Returning to the above results, we see a 101 ft apex and a 46 ° landing angle. These numbers mean that when this nuclear Mavrik 7 iron reaches the green from 190 yds away, there is plenty of stopping capacity. Well, that’s correct, 190 yds to bear. Want anything to say? The Mavrik MAX is the second iron. It has a much thicker topline and a little more offset than its equivalent Mavrik. The disparity is still very clear in the loft. This iron is supposed to be a better, higher-loft variant of the Mavrik launch. Typically, this form of iron is more advantageous for slower club head velocities, or players with unusually low ball flight.
Compared to the Mavrik ‘s 27 ° loft, the loft of the Mavrik MAX 7-iron is 31.5 °. Mavrik Peak findings are as follows: Club Club Speed Ball Speed Smash Factor Launch Angle Spin Rate Apex Land Angle Carry DistanceMavrik MAX 7-iron 89.4 mph 120.8 mph 1.35 ratio 18.7 degrees 5250 rpm 104 feet 48.1 degrees 176.5 ydsThis iron is a breeze to reach, considering the somewhat ‘chunkier’ appearance and further offset. I discovered that looking down at more loft encouraged more faith and encouraged my shots to start more reliably on goal. While I have not used dispersion in these findings, with Mavrik MAX versus Mavrik, my original Trackman report reveals a closer dispersion trend. Without any improvement in club pace, there is a significant decrease in ball speed, resulting in a lower smash factor.
This is undoubtedly attributed to the loft rise from Mavrik to Mavrik MAX. In comparison, a downside for a player aiming for sheer space and pace is that this iron rockets almost 2 ° higher and spins another 350 rpms. Nevertheless, for a slower-club-head pace player or anyone who wants to lift their trajectory, this is a great combo. Compared to Mavrik, the apex is 3 feet higher and the landing angle grows by more than 2 °. My carry yardage was nowhere similar to what it was for Mavrik, but this iron is perfect for a player who needs to hit better , more accurate iron shots with a higher overall trajectory, improved landing angle (stopping power), and tighter shot dispersion. Finally, we have the Mavrik Pro.
To satisfy better athletes, this iron boasts a narrower overall blade, with a much thinner topline, and fewer offset. This iron is the sexiest one in the Mavrik rows, by far. Obviously, this iron is the least accommodating of the three, but it always packs enough in this tiny head for stronger players. Off-center shots appear to drop more ball momentum than the other two checked iron shots, but also tend to remain online. Also, this iron is slightly more’ workable’ with less offset and more spin than the other two. Overall, this is a fantastic looking and sounding iron that has a lot to give for a just above-average ball striker in terms of reach and trajectory.
The findings are as follows: Club Club Speed Ball Speed Smash Factor Launch Angle Spin Rate Apex Land Angle Carry DistanceMavrik Pro 7-iron 89.6 mph 123.8 mph 1.38 Ratio 18.5 degrees 5460 rpm 109 ft 49.1 degrees 180.1 yds The Mavrik Pro ball speed is not as swift as Mavrik as predicted, but the face feels just as hot. That’s mainly because of the loft. A 30 ° 7 iron is the Mavrik Pro. This iron is a reasonable balance between the Mavrik nuclear and Mavrik MAX’s towering trajectory. Compared to the Mavrik MAX, the Mavrik Pro is 3 mph quicker off the face, and spins 200 rpms more. Mavrik Pro launches 1.6 ° higher relative to Mavrik, which has almost 600 more rpms. This leads, at my club-head pace, to the highest apex and steepest landing angle of the Mavrik side.
Categorized as something of a “distance player” iron, this iron is suitable for stronger players searching for more height and distance on their shots. Ultimately, with their iron, the Mavrik line of iron provides a large range of players with a way to attain maximum trajectory and efficiency. Mavrik MAX, buck ‘s market patterns, quick to reach, high launch, by providing a weaker lofted iron to players who need extra loft to facilitate better , more accurate shots. With its explosive reach and dull trajectory, the Mavrik, though, is very remarkable, while still producing enough stopping power on the back end. For players attempting to add distance to their iron game, this iron is a perfect pick.
And for single-digit handicappers, Mavrik Pro offers the look that better players like, and the output to reach those hidden pin positions high and long with drop-and-stop output.
The Callaway MAVRIK irons ought to be part of the fit for the golfer who wants to recover any missed distance or just make the game simpler. These irons have plenty of ball velocity no matter when you catch the ball on your face.
