Cobra Speedzone Vs. Callaway Mavrik Irons Comparison And Review 2021
When people think of game-improvement irons, they typically think of irons that play long. After all, distance is hard to squeeze out of long irons.
You may also automatically think of Mavrik and Speedzone irons because these have been cemented as two of the most quintessential game-improvement irons over the years.
Why? Because they do exactly what game-improvement irons are supposed to do: increase distance. But which set plays longer? We will answer this and other burning question in the following comparison overview.
Callaway Mavrik Irons Overview
The Callaway Mavrik irons have a larger head profile compared to the Speedzone’s; but did that do anything to give them the edge in distance?
The Callaway Mavrik standard irons are touted as the longest entries into the Mavrik family – and indeed the distance is impressive.
The Flash Face Cup technology works to push speed all around the face by increasing coefficient of retention.
In essence, this means that more energy from your swing is preserved no matter what part of the face you make contact with.
The Mavrik’s also feature the Tungsten energy cores which are specially shaped tungsten weights placed in key areas of the head to optimize CG.
This coupled with the larger head profile makes the Mavrik’s plenty forgiving. However, in terms of pure distance, the Speedzone irons performed better…
Cobra Speedzone Irons Overview
You are probably wondering how much better the Speedzone’s performed in the distance arena – try an average of 10 yards better.
The Cobra Speedzone irons feel impressive as soon as you pick them up. They are very light and feel comfortable in the hands of both beginners and seasoned players.
Trust us, we had both kinds of players in our testing party.
No matter what swing speed to have it would be hard to imagine that you couldn’t get at least 5 yards of extra distance than normal out of these irons.
To help with forgiveness, the Cobra Speedzone irons feature perimeter weighting.
Still, the shorter blade lengths were something of a challenge – especially when compared to the Mavrik’s.
This was a tough one to call because the Mavrik’s are more traditionally forgiving than the Cobra Speedzone irons.
Still, we predicated this comparison on game-improving distance and on that front, there is a clear winner.
The Cobra Speedzone irons were hands-down the longer irons in this comparison.
