What we say...

Callaway's new Mavrik Max driver is the easiest launching model with the highest MOI and most draw bias. 

See how the Callaway Mavrik Max compared to the year's other drivers in our 2020 driver test

Thanks to two sole weights (14g and 2g) in the back and heel, Callaway Max is a very clever driver.

It not only offers golfers the most draw bias, with the 14g weight in the heel, but by switching the weight to the back port golfers get the highest MOI Mavrik option, too. That's seriously clever stuff.

The head's wider from face to back, and Callaway say it's five yards longer than an Epic Flash driver, which is quite a claim.

Callaway Mavrik: Key Features

Cyclone aero shape 
Mavrik is really slippery when it comes to aero performance. The sweeping sole displaces less air, especially in the final three feet before impact. It reduces drag by 61% over the Epic Flash, which was considered a very aerodynamic driver

AI acoustics 
Callaway's new super computer has been put to good work and with Mavrik it was unleashed on the acoustics, too. The computer was tasked with improving sound for all three new models. And because Callaway's engineers asked it to dial into known "pleasing" sound frequencies, the new model sounds more like an iron.

Unconventional forgiveness 
Forget everything you've been told about high MOI meaning more forgiveness. Callaway say that by allowing a computer to design each Mavrik face individually, they dial down spin variation which gives the effect of a higher MOI. Mavrik has a lower MOI than Epic Flash, but amazingly is 13% more accurate.

Callaway Mavrik: First Hit

Three-model driver families are nothing new, but Mavrik moves the idea to a whole new optimised level. And, boy, is it clever stuff. We loved the solidness of the new sound, which comes down to how each head is individually optimised from so many angles.

All three heads sit beautifully behind the ball. The shape differences are easy to spot at address, yet the MAX won’t draw attention to you being an average golfer. In fact, it might just be the driver club golfers have needed for years. Its ability to be either super forgiving or slice busting, all without an ugly closed face angle, is really impressive.
