Just when you think Callaway has summited Mt. Everest when it comes to equipment, they come out with something new that takes the golf world by storm. This is most certainly what happened when their Mavrik Irons hit the shelves in early 2020. 


These irons have proven incredibly popular for a reason. They’re forgiving, hot, and as technologically advanced as anything on the market. 

While Callaway has come out with newer game improvement irons since 2020, the Mavriks remain in high demand to this day.

Key Features

AI-designed face boosts both ball speed and spin.

Tungsten weights optimize CG location for high launch conditions.

Urethane microspheres absorb shock on mishits while also maximizing COR for explosive distance.

Design and Technology

The club designers at Callaway didn’t overlook any detail with the Mavrik Irons.


While distance and forgiveness are the hallmarks of these clubs, none of it would be possible without tungsten weights in the perimeter. These weights allow the CG to be strategically placed in every club so that launch conditions are optimized. Even though the lofts on the Mavrik Irons are exceptionally strong, shots still launch high and land soft.


Callaway has used AI to construct their driver heads for a while. The Mavriks are the first irons to be designed the same way. So far, the results have proven nothing short of amazing. Golfers have noticed a significant boost in ball speed, distance, and spin the short irons. Long, straight, and controlled – the combination is deadly. 

A common complaint from golfers that play game improvement irons is that they aren’t responsive and lack feel. That’s anything but the case with the Mavriks. Urethane microspheres absorb vibration and shock on mishit shots. On solid shots, these irons feel just as good as a forged club.


The microspheres also work to increase COR, a key metric that’s indicative of ball speed and distance. 


PROS

  • AI-designed face is the smartest, fastest, and most forgiving face Callaway has ever made.
  • Tungsten weighting optimizes CG for ideal launch conditions.
  • Strong lofts help golfers get more distance out of each iron.

CONS

  • Lack of stock shaft options could be a limiting factor.
  • Irons may take getting used to because they fly farther than other game improvement irons.
  • Price point remains higher than other irons from the same year.

Our Experience

I had the chance to hit the Mavrik Irons when they were first released. Immediately I was blown away by just how far they go in comparison to other irons in the game improvement category. While a lot of that is due to strong lofts, the Mavriks’ technological and design features are largely to thank.


One of our writers recently played with his dad who hits Mavrik Irons. Normally an inconsistent ball striker, our writer was blown away by not only the distance these clubs gave his dad, but how consistently he hit them too. It was more than evident that they’re plenty forgiving.


We’ve heard nothing but rave reviews from our readers too. Suffice it to say Callaway’s Mavrik Irons are a game changer.
