Mizuno MX-20 Irons vs Callaway Mavrik Irons Loft Difference

Recommended Posts

I want to share the differences between a new iron set and a 20 year old iron set. I have been playing with my Mizuno MX-20 irons for 20 years. They are a little worn so I decided to buy new Mavrik irons with 2 deg flat and 0.5 inch short. I have flipping problem with my swing and my ball flight trajectory is usually too high so I have to hit 1 or 2 more clubs compared to my golf buddies. Since my ball flight is high I specifically looked for irons with strong loft and I found the Mavrik irons to have strongest loft of all irons.

Below are the comparison. Note that Mavrik basically is 1 to 1.5 club stronger in loft compared to the MX-20s. I know, I shouldn't care what clubs my friends use but psychologically I don't like it 😄. Yes, I am trying to improve my swing to solve the flipping problem.

Mavrik irons' club heads are slightly smaller than the MX-20s. Frankly, I can't tell the difference when hitting these clubs if I don't see the new clubs are shinier. For the same loft, the Mavrik is slightly longer because of their much thinner face that provide more bounce.

Well it’s not so much that the lofts are stronger, it’s that the lofts of modern irons have to be adjusted due to the new technology of higher launch, lower spin and faster faces. The adjustments are necessary so that a 7i, for example, still behaves like a 7i as far as green holding for example.

    • I hope this change breathes new life into GG.  I enjoyed using it for several years.  I switched over to Arccos a couple of years ago due to problems with GG and don't anticipate switching back (although my GG live unit and sensors are still in the closet).  But it's good to have competing companies offering similar products/services--I suspect it may help keep both companies on their toes for technical capability, pricing, reporting formats, etc. 
    • You and your passport will vaporize.  Because of the chip that was installed.
    • I had two players make the cut, Cink and Bradley! I’m expecting to rack up major points!😜
    • I 100%......... Disagree.  If you look at Arnold, Jack, Miller... they hit the ball HARD!!!  Golf is about risk assessment. On a hole where I know it's not in my shot shape, I will not go at it. If there is hole that is open and gives me a lot of room, I can let loose. I was never taught to just go all out.  Now, I think there is benefit to allowing someone growing up to turn a lot and swing harder since it develops speed. Then later on, getting them to control it. I rather have speed than not to have it at all.  In terms of what you are saying, that is game planning.  Again, 100%.... Disagree.  You can get a lob shot to end up inside 30-Ft way more often than hitting a 5-iron to inside 30-Ft. Also, being aggressive, doesn't mean lob shot is your next shot all the time. I can be aggressive, hit a 3-wood into a par 5 green and know the ball is not going to be short sided.  I agree that game improvement irons make it difficult to hit the ball lower. I swing too hard to even what to consider game improvement irons. For those who don't have the swing speed, they struggle to get the ball high enough. So, this maybe for you, it doesn't speak for those who would benefit from game improvement irons the most.  It's hard to do when you swing out of control with muscle back irons. Its also hard to do when your a 30 handicap golfer in general. I rather that golfer get some distance, and proper yardage gaps on their irons than add more struggle to their golf game by playing muscle back irons. In the end, it's the golfers swing not he club that matters the most.  It is pretty beneficial to know what your yardages are. Golf monitors are very beneficial. Especially when you can't get outside for 3-4 months out of the year.
