Callaway Mavrik Sub Zero Fairway

Callaway has pushed the boundaries of what is possible in terms of performance in recent seasons and the Mavrik range showcases their latest Flash Face technology, designed by an even more powerful super-computer to maximise ball speeds.

Editor's Choice 2020

The feel and zip off the C300 Maraging steel face of the Mavrik Sub Zero is remarkable and makes the club supremely satisfying and, really, just great fun to hit.

The Mavriz SZ targets the better player and is the most workable fairway in the Mavrik range. Using AI, the face has been specifically designed with this in mind and, in testing, we certainly found it easy to shape the ball with this club.

It’s a sleek and attractive fairway with black head and orange highlights on the sole. At address, it sits neatly and the cambered sole inspires confidence that you can really get into the back of the ball from a variety of lies.

Distance boost

Callaway were confident that the Mavrik range would deliver increased distance compared to the preceding Epic range. In testing, we found this claim stands up. The Mavrik SZ fairway displays heightened efficiency in terms of translating clubhead to ball speed. The spin rate is lower, the flight is penetrating and more consistent and that means the overall distance is quite significantly up.

Jailbreak technology 

Although the Mavrik SZ is highly workable and the forward CG will help better players produce a more penetrating, lower spinning flight, it is still forgiving. This is thanks to the Jailbreak technology which really helps you get the most out of all your shots, even those that come from slightly lower in the face.

The Mavrik Sub Zero is a hugely impressive fairway that will suit the better player looking for a combination of maximum power and workability.
