All three Callaway Mavrik fairway woods feature fully optomised AI designed flash faces - so how did it affect their performance?

Visually this sits great behind the ball. It is very classic in looks with simple orange styling details on the crown.

Callaway Mavrik fairway woods: The Technology

For the first time in fairway woods Artificial intelligence is used to design a unique face for each model. The Flash Face SS20 is is forged and features jailbreak and face cup technology for maximum ball speed.

The range includes progressive leading-edge geometry so the front edge of the club is optimised for the golfer using each model. The Max model has a lowered leading edge for better performance on low face strikes whereas the Pro model has a tighter leading edge to help with workability.

Interchangeable weighting means launch, spin and shot shape can be optimised for each golfer.

Callaway Mavrik fairway woods: NCG Verdict

Ok – let’s get straight to the point – this club is seriously fast.

My average carry distance with the Epic Flash was 201 yards, I am getting 216 yards average carry with the Mavrik. That’s a gain of 15 yards – yes, 15 yards!

I saw a slight increase in clubhead speed with the Mavrik compared to last seasons Epic Flash. However when hit with the same clubhead speed as the Epic Flash, I gained 3mph of ball speed, leading to an extra 9 yards of carry distance. I think that is testament to the success of the new AI designed clubface.
