A Look at the Three Mavrik Irons

If you’re looking for a new set of irons, you might be wondering if the Callaway Golf Mavrik is worth your investment. In this Callaway Mavrik irons review, we’ll take a close look at the three different Mavrik models, what makes each one unique, and which irons would be the greatest fit for your game.


The standard Mavrik irons set is a collection of game-improvement irons specifically designed for achieving greater distance. If you’ve been looking to cover more distance when playing, these clubs are worth a look. They’re very forgiving compared to the Pro set but lesser than the Max set. To top it off, the Callaway Mavrik irons feature all the gimmicks found in other Mavrik irons, such as the AI-built clubface.

If you want to know how many yards and ball speed you’re gaining compared with your previous irons, try swinging the Callaway Golf Mavrik with a launch monitor on. You can find one at your local club fitter or at the bigger golf equipment stores in your area. Don’t forget to bring your old irons for comparison.  Most launch monitors tend to inflate their figures to get you excited and want to buy the clubs right away without evaluating other, more cost-effective alternatives.


  • Extremely long iron
  • Has fairly decent forgiveness
  • Enables you to achieve pretty straight shots


  • Not a great tool at controlling distance
  • A bit chunky
  • Makes it harder to work the ball when needed

Mavrik Max

If you’re a high handicap player or consider yourself a poor ball-striker, the Callaway Mavrik Max Irons are worthy of consideration.  The Max set is a among the best super game improvement irons out there, with the distinction of being the most forgiving golf clubs on the market. This feat means you’re getting thick toplines, a low center of gravity, wide soles, and no shortage of perimeter weighting.

The finished product is a club that releases the ball into the air as effortlessly and quickly as possible. It’s ideal for players who struggle to get the ball in the air, either due to swing speed or angle of impact.

To be honest, most golfers don’t practice enough and aren’t naturally good enough to consistently hit the center of the clubface. Fortunately, the Max set has a much bigger sweet spot, allowing you to miss the center of the clubface by up to an inch without as much consequence.


  • Has extreme forgiveness
  • Features decent length 
  • Bias for straight shots 


  • Not attractive at address since it’s super chunky
  • Proves harder to work the ball when needed

Mavrik Pro

The Callaway Mavrik Pro iron is a players’ iron through and through. It has a thinner profile designed for better control rather than an increase in distance or forgiveness.

Every strike you make right at the center is rewarded with exceptional distance control, while off-center hits get punished with a terrible feel and a disastrous result. If you aren’t confident that you can consistently hit the center of the clubface, then probably this isn’t the Callaway golf set for you. Compared to other game improvement irons, it’s significantly easier to work the ball using this set of clubs.


  • Excellent feel upon impact 
  • Better distance control
  • Provides a cleaner look at address 
  • Makes working the ball easier 


  • Less forgiving
  • Makes working the ball easier, which isn’t good if you already slice or hook the ball 


Features And Benefits

The Callaway Mavrik Irons were specifically designed with ball speed in mind. Callaway made them both lengthy and forgiving by applying the same face cup technology that worked so well on the Rogue Irons.

Furthermore, Callaway’s tungsten energy core and its Flash Face Technology have been incorporated in an iron clubface. The Mavrik, like other game improvement irons, comes with powerful lofts in the Mavrik model of the club. However, the lofts on the Pro and Max are not as strong.

Player Handicap

The Mavrik Irons are game improvement irons for mid handicappers. If you consistently shoot above 87 while keeping your score under 100, this is the perfect option for you.

Meanwhile, the Mavrik Max is the super game-improvement prototype. The Max boasts of a broader sole, lower center of gravity, and greater loft to help beginners and high handicappers get the ball up in the air. Don’t expect Max to provide extra distance, though; while it’s quite long, each iron has slightly more loft than the standard Mavrik.

Finally, the Mavrik Pro Irons are the players’ irons. These clubs are ideal for golfers with a handicap of 3-10.

Shaft Options

Like other Callaway products, you can purchase these Mavrik irons with an entire range of shaft options. The default shaft for the steel model will be the True Temper Elevate 95. Meanwhile, the Project X Catalyst will be the stock shaft in the Graphite. The Catalyst is the newer option for Callaway since they used Synergy previously. The Catalyst is a Mid Torque, Mid Kickpoint, and Midweight shaft. 

When placing a custom shaft in these clubs, make sure that you’re aware of the torque, kick point, and weight. The majority of testing made by golf manufacturers is done with the stock shafts in place.

Don’t be surprised if the ball flight and distance aren’t the same once you install a heavy shaft in the club. It’s best to have a fitting done every time you deviate from any of these stock options. 

Look, Sound, and Feel

It’s no secret that Callaway’s Rogue iron performed incredibly well in 2019. It was a huge step up from the XR Irons, providing players with all the loft, distance, and spin rates they could ever want.

If there’s one thing that golfers didn’t like about the Rouge, it was the feel. After all, achieving the incredible feeling of a forged club into a cavity back iron isn’t as easy as it sounds.

The addition of urethane microspheres in the clubhead improves the feel of the Mavrik irons. Upon impact, the urethane microspheres work hard to minimize and absorb any vibration.

The black, orange, and silver color scheme is also a departure from the Rogue irons of last year. They have a sleek appearance and are not as clumsy as the Big Bertha Irons of Callaways’ past.


Like all irons in the market today, the lofts on all Callaway Mavrik irons provide plenty of length. When the said lofts are combined with the face cup technology and the flash face, the clubs are capable of producing incredibly fast ball speeds. 

The Mavrik is the optimal choice for players who struggle with distance. The strong lofts combined with the somewhat thinner sole compared to the Max Irons will provide you with the formula you need to achieve the distance you lack in your game.

To give you an idea of the specs for the three sets, the Pitching Wedge has the following lofts:

  • Mavrik: 41 degrees
  • Mavrik Pro: 43 degrees
  • Mavrik Max: 43 degrees

Notice that the Max and Pro have identical lofts. The reason behind this is rather simple.  Players who need to develop their game require some added launch on their shots.

Players with extremely high swing speeds can hit the ball at an incredible ball speed without altering the makeup of their irons.

Some of the best golfers are worried that they can hit a seven iron two hundred yards since it creates different gaps in their bag


The center of gravity for each iron can be adjusted using the new tungsten energy core. This allows each loft to capture optimal launch angles.

The difference between a pitching wedge and a long iron is no longer just loft; the actual center of gravity has been calibrated specifically for each club.


The associated pricing for the Callaway Mavrik and Mavrik Max belongs to the average tier of excellent iron sets for mid handicappers. Meanwhile, the Mavrik Pro irons are on the lower tier of the premium set of player irons. 

Add Mavrik Irons to Your Golf Bags

If you’re looking for an iron that will help you improve your game and take it to the next level, Callaway Mavrik is a great option. With their amazing technology and thoughtful design, these irons are sure to give you an edge on the course. So don’t wait any longer – invest in a set of Callaway Mavriks today!
