    Take it to a place where you can demo the MAVRIK. Put your shaft in the MAVRIK, see if it improves your numbers... put different shafts in your head, see if you get better numbers... Just tinker around until you find something you like! Highly recommend the Aldila Rogue 130. One of my favorite shafts.

    Have the total weight and grip size checked. Both of those can cause what you're getting. Was trying out my new ST190 3w Saturday and had to work like heck to draw it. I had tossed on a standard grip just to try it out (didn't have a spare midsize in sight). Went home and put a proper midsize grip on it and all is solved.

    I'm in the same boat as you but with an M4 that I was fitted for. Even though newer tech might not be leaps and bounds better, is it better to jump ship to a new driver or just replace the shaft? The conclusion I've reached is if you have to spend money on making the old driver work as well as when you first put it in play, it is probably better to take the hit this year and go for something newer. Plus, new and shiny might make you happier with your bag which leads to more confidence on the course.

    Thanks for all your comments. I totally agree, time you spend the 250 or plus on driver shaft a person just as well test the new drivers all together and spend the extra 250 send it to the trees like the old driver yard or 2 more Thanks again

    My friend on staff has rogue sub zero and when he tried the same setup in the mavrik sub zero it didnt work as well as the rogue. Not sure that helps but maybe a shaft change for the mavrik for him to get same numbers is required

    Look at the shaft selection at,

    Excellent selection, and decent prices, would look there first

    The Rogue driver heads were extremely light. Which for a lot of people contributed to the all over the place dispersion. I have not had s Mavrik head to weigh yet, but hopefully it is not as light as the rogue lineup.

    I’m in the same predicament. Not sure if I should buy the shaft or get a new driver. Is a couple of yards gain in distance worth the extra $250 for a new driver? I will say this the standard Mavrik sure looks nice!!!

    I have a Rogue SZ with 14g and 2g weights and the weight of the head is 198g, same as my F9. I have played the Rogue SZ at 44 1/4" and the SW is about D3. I prefer the muted sound of the F9 to the muted sound of the Rogue SZ. The Rogue will be sold. I plan to hit the Speed Zone drivers and see if there is a reason to switch, but I doubt it since much of the talk is the new Cobra drivers are louder. They would have to be significantly longer and more forgiving to get me to switch.
