Mavrik Max Fairway alternative without draw bias?

Recommended Posts

I love the size, shape, feel and sound of my Mavrik Max 5 wood. It sits flat and square behind the ball and the leading edge inspires confidence. Too bad it has too much draw bias for my tendencies. Any suggestions what looks, sits and performs alike but with neutral/fade bias? I am looking for a fairly big, shallow shape with a low, square leading edge.

 

Thanks

The mavrik subzero is a really really wonderful model.  If you Havent hit one - go hit one.

I agree that another Mavrik, either the SZ or the regular one is your best bet. Feel is very similar across the models, just slightly different head shapes and spin characteristic, but even that can be offset quite a bit with shaft

Are the weights in the neutral configuration or the draw configuration? Set it to neutral if not. You can further neutralize it by downsizing the heavier weight - or both weights - to 2g Callaway weights and add lead tape or hot melt in the toe.

 

I agree that the Maverik Max is a rare fantastic fairway in from recent years. My wife loves hers.

How can I tell and change if necessary?

Use one of the tools from a driver to remove the weights and check. They say how many grams they are on the sides when you remove them.

This is a great question, OP.  I absolutely love my Mav Max 5w.  So easy to hit high bombs, but I definitely don’t need any help going left either.  As the poster above me mentioned, the STZ may be the ticket.  I have the STZ as a 3w and it’s surprisingly easy to hit off the deck.  I may consider a 5w too.  It’s got a deep face and not quite the same launch-aiding leading edge, but it sits very neutral to my eye.

Thx. Guess the heavier weight should sit in the back in my case?


to make it neutral yes. Heavier weight in the heel is draw mode

What shaft are you playing in it?

 

Center of gravity impact on sidespin is very minimal in fwys. Draw bias in fwys will come from a closed face at impact. That could be face angle at address but it also could be from how the rear/forward center of gravity is affecting head delivery at impact. You may be able to do some shaft play to help with face angle...but be prepared to tinker if you go that route...

Current shaft is Evenflow Riptide
