After you got your Mavrik SZ, did you pick up the same model 3-wood and/or hybrid?


Recommended Posts

Mavrik SZ on the way... And whereas I don't know that I want to replace my TM RBZ 3-wood and hybrid right now, I'm wondering if the SZ 3-wood and Pro hybrid are logical fits based on fit of the driver.

Asked another way, if you went SZ in the driver, did you go SZ in the 3-wood? Or, did you find that one of the other trims was more appropriate for that club?

I just got the SZ (I started a thread on it) but I have kept my old 3 and 5w. I hit both of them well so I don't see a reason to change to the SZ.

No adjustability is a deal breaker for me. Even if I don't use it , I want the option.

I did this with EF SZ, but the 3w is waaay to close to driver distance. That said, I do love it! I grabbed a heavenwood on a whim as well and it covers just about anything I'd need by itself. This is the first time I've ever had a matching set of woods.

This is all good stuff. Yeah, I still have the RBZ 3-wood after all this time because I know how I hit it/what to expect from it. Part of me doesn't want to mess with that. And, I don't think I'm interested in something that goes nearly as far as my driver.

...But I'm not married to my RBZ hybrid. I've really been to lazy to bother pursuing a different one -- but the feel of the Mavrik driver has be wondering if I should finally look into a new [Mavrik] hybrid.

I don't have direct experience with Mavrik, however, once I bought and fell in love with my Epic Flash SZ Driver, I did buy the 5 wood, dialed down to 17*, it's a beast. I'd assume Mavrik line similarly impressive.

Did you have the EF SZ Fairway woods prior to moving into the Mavrik? I am weary of moving into the Mavrik Fairways because of the bonded hosel, but if the Mavrik has more fade bias, than I'm in!

I have the Mavrik SZ, but I kept my Epic Flash non-SZ fairway wood.  I love that club and I've always felt that hitting long shots off the turf is the single hardest thing to do in golf, so why not have a touch of extra forgiveness built in?  

 

As I type that, I realize my inane hypocrisy and wonder why I constantly try to shoehorn in a driving iron instead of just having a 5w or 2h?  

I swear I'm a moron sometimes........

Was fitted for Mavrik SZ driver today.  Also fitted for 3w and 5w and those ended up not being SZ, FWIW.

 

I was as well, but the TM Sim Ti was the clear winner for me for fairway woods.  I had a Mavrik SZ 4 wd which was performing okish for me, but last round left me seriously pissed off as it was flying too high and very short.

Sorry, earlier response probably not all that helpful without more.

 

Driver is Mavrik SZ Rogue 60TS shaft.

 

The 3w and 5w that performed best for me were regular Mavrik heads with Riptide 6.0 - S 60g.

 

Driver and 5w came home with me.  3w on order.  I did switch the 14g weight to the front after getting what I thought was too high, too much spin with my normal golf ball on the course last night.  The change did actually make a difference today, but I was swinging it so much better today that I'll have to experiment more.  Also, this driver flies high for me and I think it's ballooning (still getting used to feel off face and not sure on feedback yet) and . . . I just hit the darn thing high and it goes, so no, it's not ballooning, haha.  I have yet to hit a single bad shot with the 5w from the tee or a closely mown fairway,  so easy to hit.  Driver of course isn't perfect and won't be for me, but it is the best feeling driver head/shaft combo I've ever had, ever. Puts my 913D2 to shame and forever out of the bag, and I've had later versions of D2 and D3 that couldn't knock it out of the bag.
