Mizuno MX-20 Irons vs Callaway Mavrik Irons Loft Difference

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.
