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.

    • Day 518: Did some backswing drills working on priority piece with Live View Pro camera. Hit some foam balls outside,  slow speed for a few 10-ball sets with rehearsals between, and then close to full speed for the last 10. 
    • Interesting.  I don't need them during a round, so if it lasts a few minutes, and that's enough to offload the rounds, that's good enough for me.  I wish they'd keep the Windows app working, I don't understand why they discontinued it.
    • Day 84.   Real balls today!  I hit a dozen balls this evening, slow backswing slow through, focusing on the chest down head back parts from last time.  After the first, I made good contact, so I think that's a good sign.  
    • Day 506 - May 17, 2021 Hit balls (including one ball into the parking lot) from the back of the range at Whispering Woods today. Didn't quite have the same feel as the other day, but… it's close.
    • So I was helping my daughter out at the back of the range today. I had chipped literally two 8-irons, then wanted her to take a break, so I said “watch this in case I duck hook it onto the practice green” (short game). I’m on the back of the range, hitting toward the mats that are 300 yards away. I hit it, a high seed, and… it hits by the mats (between two people, about six mats apart) and bounces into the parking lot. It’s a gravel parking lot, the ball didn’t go very far. But, ooooookay. So, that’s enough of that. My daughter was both in awe and frightened that I may have dented someone’s Honda. A student takes his Mevo out on the course to measure shots hit out there, and he said he measured my first tee shot a few days ago at 175 ball speed and 117.x (don’t remember the decimal value) clubhead speed. He bought a set of SuperSpeed sticks off eBay later that day. Wheeeeee.
