I'm interested in the 3 drivers noted in the header, Mavrik/Mavrik SZ/Epic Speed. Mostly looking at those as my local course has the Callaway demo cart so I could test a few shafts if needed.
Although I can tend to fade/slice the ball, the killer for me is the dreaded high toe hit that snaps left and goes OB. If I could aim down the left-center of the fairway and allow a fade to be playable without being scared of the hooker I'd be a very happy camper.
I did get to hit the Epic Speed in a the Smoke iM10 in 6.5, while I thought that shaft might be too stout (105-107 ss) I got along with it quite well - still got plenty of lift and could turn it over a bit as well.
Since CPO has great prices right now on Like New Mavrik/SZ models I'm interested in anyone's feedback on these heads and how they play on that high toe. The SZ model is of interest because I like the smaller profile at address of the 450cc head - I did like the view of the Speed at address as well by my course doesn't seem to have the 9* head anywhere to be found right now to try - I hit it on a Callaway demo day a few weeks back. I also have no issue with getting balls in the air and almost never see any roll out when they hit the fairway, leading me to believe that high spin is an issue.
Although my ss might not be quite what I would think I need for X-Stiff, I do have an aggressive move and fast transition so I am looking to go X based upon what I saw with that Speed. I really don't like to way the Max LS looks at address, that elongated head does nothing for my confidence over the ball.
I'm currently playing a Triton (yes, that's right) in the 8.5/standard lie setting with as much weight forward as I can with the Rogue 125 stiff. When I center it up it goes for days, but spin still seems to be high based on ball flight and how it acts (no roll) when it lands unless I accidentally launch it way too low. The big miss is the snappy hook when I catch it on the toe which is why I'm looking for an alternative.
Thanks in advance.
