Callaway Mavrik Irons Review
Callaway Mavrik Irons
Game Improvement serving 8-20 handicaps
Long with tons of forgiveness. Nice sound and feel
Very Good Game Improvement Irons for Mid Handicaps
The quicky Callaway Mavrik Irons Review: An all around excellent choice for those looking for a balance between game improvement and player irons.
The Mavriks are long, get the ball up easily, and have all the forgiveness the mid handicapper is looking for.
- Excellent distance and the ball takes off on a nice high trajectory
- You don't have to go after these clubs. Let them do the work for you
- As forgiving as a mid handicap will ever need...and more
- Not as pretty as the Apex 19 irons...but few things are.
Testing Time with The Callaway Mavrik Irons
4 Sessions on the Range...No game time unfortunately.
The set I tested consisted of pitching wedge through 4-iron.
I brought out my 8-iron and 5-iron form my set of Taylormade P 790s for comparison.
Pretty quickly, I figured out the Mavriks were/are hot irons that get the ball up easily. I'm a high-ball hitter so I would have been surprised if this haden't been the case. But, I have tested irons where even I had trouble getting the ball up without my best ball striking.
They set up nicely behind the ball and have zero intimidation factor.
As stated above, I had 4 range sessions and I probably hit 300-400 balls with these irons.. a lot more than needed, but I tend to lose track of time when I'm having fun. So, no worries.
What Surprised Me
Nothing...I expected them to be long... they were. I expected them to be forgiving... they were. I expected good sound and feel, ...they were had good sound and feel.
In summary, my high expectations and they were met. Good job Callaway.
Full Callaway Mavrik Irons Review
Club Tested: 2020 Callaway Mavrik Irons : 4 - PW. Mens right hand. Shaft, True Temper Elevate 95 Steel Stiff Flex. Standard lie.
**The Mavriks I tested were not close to my specs. I play 120 gram S-300 shafts and can easily play x-stiff shafts. My lies are also bent 2* flat.
Looks: Black w/ orange accents (not my favorite for these irons). Head size is moderately big, but not gaudy.
Feel / Sound: Very solid feel with a nice "click" on contact. Pleasing overall.
Forgiveness: If you have any ball-striking skill whatsoever, you will be good to go with the Mavriks. Center strikes yield killer results, but the whole face is working in your favor.
The Mavriks are easy to hit through the bag. Even the long irons get up easily and carry for days.
Distance: Looong. Easy distance over a good portion of the club face. Hit the sweet spot and watch it really fly.
Shaping: You can dial up any shape or trajectory you want, assuming you can already dial up any shape or trajectory you want.
I can't easily dial up any shape or trajectory I want right now due to some club path issues. My shots are falling a bit to the right instead of my normal tight draw. Can't blame this on the clubs.
Low Handicap: 7 - Scratch: No. I'm going to side with Callaway and say you will likely want something with a smaller club head and more in the "Player" category. The Mavrik Pros look like a good bet. (Review on these coming soon)
Mid Handicap: Yes...This club was created for you.
High Handicapper: Yes, you can buy these too.
Callaway says these Mavriks are designed for players with handicaps from 8-20.
The Mavrik Max irons are a better choice if you are a rank beginner or have a handicap above 20. (Review coming soon.
