My Initial Experience with Mavrik (Now Vs Sim on Pg. 2)
Yesterday I had the opportunity with one of my really good friends who is a head professional and club fitter to hit the new Mavrik Drivers. We were hitting balls outside, 5-8mph left to right wind with real prov1's on Flightscope X3. A little bit about myself I am 24 years old, play off about a +1.5 hcp and am a very high launch, high speed low spin player.
First to get my tempo I hit my gamer, a 2017 M1 460 with a
truespec built Tour AD GP 6x Black playing 45” at 7.75 lasered loft.
I was averaging
With an average dispersion of 18.8 yards left
My normal flight is a tight draw with my miss being a block to the right. I was hitting mine just about to my usual standard.
I just want it to be known that I usually am not a Callaway clubs fan, I find them hard to set up to and to control, I’ve gamed TM drivers for the last 5 years but I do always test all brands before coming to my decisions.
When we got to the time to hit the Mavrik I wanted to start with the 9* regular head before the SZ. The shaft he had in the cart that we thought would be a good baseline is the new stock Aldila Rogue White 130MSI 70x and I’ll skip talking about every other shaft I hit because this was BY FAR the best.
With the 9* regular head tuned to -1 with the Rogue 130 Averaged
18.3 Launch (yikes)
With an average dispersion of 11.4 yards left
I absolutely loved the feel and shape of this head, its gorgeous, exactly what I like in a head a beautiful rounded shape, the carbon looks great with its finish, if I could find a way to get a 2* green adapter for this or a tour head with less loft I would game this driver any day of the week its that confident to look at and easy to work both directions if necessary.
Then we moved to the SZ head. 9* and yes tuned back down -1 with the same Rogue White 130MSI 70x and OH MAN. I got some numbers that I have not gotten out of a driver before without it being a long drive club of my buddies. This thing is a CANNON.
My averages were
322 yards of carry
343 yards total
With an average dispersion of 9.8 yards to the right.
There was something about this driver that allowed me to swing harder with zero fear that it was ever going to go to the left which is an INCREDIBLE FEELING for someone who always has fought a hook with driver. I also had a few that crested over the 130’s in swing speed and touched 191 ball speed.
The conclusion of this all is 2020 will be the year that my old faithful will probably be replaced. Next Monday I have a fitting to try the SIM and SIM Max and also will be able to hit the same set up of the Mavrik I hit in this session. So far, I am fully blown away by a Callaway club besides my PM Grind 60.
