Callaway Mavrik Fairway Woods Review – Callaway’s Epic Flash Driver set new boundaries upon its release last year due to its use of Artificial Intelligence and machine learning. It was clearly successful, too, as Callaway is now using this process to add ‘Flash Face’ technology to their latest range of metal woods and hybrids – named Mavrik.

This time around, in an effort to create the best possible conditions for each club on offer, the innovation has gone one step further. Or is that sixteen? More on that in a moment….

The Mavrik metalwoods replace the Rogue family, and are aimed at providing easy launch with extreme distance. As Goose says to Maverick in Top Gun – “I feel the need, the need for speed”.

What’s It All About?

Not only are these the first Callaway fairway woods to feature the Flash Face design, Callaway’s super computer has also generated a slightly different design for every single loft and head shape in the range.

That means sixteen different faces across the three different models to ensure that you get the most from your chosen weapon. Pretty impressive stuff, I have to say!

This comes from the premise that each golf club needs to be more flexible depending on what it is used for. For example, the 13.5 degree ‘power’ 3 Wood will have a completely different flight, spin rate and strike characteristic than a forgiving, high-launching 26 degree 11-Wood.

The new Mavrik range is acknowledging this diversity and has developed technology to ensure that the club is built specifically for its job.

Across the board the Flash Face is said to increase both ball speed and forgiveness, and is enhanced thanks to a new forged steel face, made from C300 Maraging steel.

It’s said to be both ‘strong and resilient’ at the point of impact, again working to raise the ball speed across the face.

Each face in the range also benefits from ‘progressive leading edge geometry’. In English, this basically means that the leading edge – the point where the sole of the club meets the bottom of the face – is angled slightly differently in each club to provide you with the best turf interaction and better ball speed as you come in to strike the ball.

It should particularly help you out if you catch the ball from the bottom of the face, which is a common fault with fairway woods.

You also get the best of Callaway’s existing club technology, including Jailbreak bars to provide better results across the face, which works alongside the Face Cup to maintain ball speeds even when you don’t strike it out of the middle.

There are 3 different models available in the Mavrik family, meaning that virtually all golfers should be catered for.

The Test

I tested the Mavrik 3 wood on-course at Stockport Golf Club and indoors at The Range in Manchester.
