Our take: Callaway’s Mavrik irons are getting the Artificial Intelligence treatment this time around. With a supercomputer designing the face of all three models in the lineup, every loft now has its own unique trajectory, spin rate and peak height to bring out the best characteristics in each iron. Custom tungsten-infused weights—the location changes based on loft—and a 360 face cup allow for extreme center-of-gravity precision and enhanced ball speeds. The moderately larger profile and deeper center of gravity location ensures maximum mishit protection and an easy launch. To pump up the overall feel at impact, Callaway’s patented urethane microspheres were added just behind the face cup to absorb unwanted vibrations and tune sound. What makes the spheres even more appealing is that they don’t negatively affect speed.
Excelled in accuracy and launch during robot testing—two areas mid to high handicappers struggle with on a regular basis. Important to note Mavrik Max’s lofts were made slightly weaker (compared to the standard version) to ensure the ball gets in the air with relative ease.
ClubTester’s take (15-hdcp): “The topline doesn’t look like a game improvement iron, which I really appreciate. Effortless launch and feel have me strongly contemplating if it’s time for an iron change.”
Robot’s take: At the top in the Game Improvement category in terms of accuracy throughout the set. If you struggle with launch, the Max is there to assist.
