Callaway Mavrik Vs Ping G710 Irons Review & Comparison 2021
As an intermediate level player, you may have some questions on what to focus on to push you over the top.
Do you want to continue with a new set of irons that will emphasize forgiveness? Or are you ready to start launching the ball further?
If this seems to be your dilemma than pay extra-close attention as we provide you with an overview of the Callaway Mavrik and Ping G710 irons.
Callaway Mavrik Irons Overview
The Callaway Mavrik irons were designed for intermediate and beginner players who need a little help with distance.
First of all, the Callaway Mavrik irons are cavity back irons – but just barely.
What we mean is that the cavity is pretty shallow which, hinders them a bit in terms of forgiveness but it allows for some of the other distance features.
For instance, there is a tungsten weight strategically placed in each of these irons that shifts the CG depending on the club.
For the most part, the long irons play very long and the short irons provide a good degree of launch and spin control.
The Mavrik’s were also designed using AI testing to get the perfect combination of length and control.
The urethane microspheres in the head also add to the buttery feel of these irons.
Ping G710 Irons Overview
The Ping G710 irons look amazing and were made to be forgiving.
The Ping G710 irons are made from 14-4 stainless steel. This is not the thinnest material but when you couple it with the maraging steel of the face; you get a great combination of strength and flex. The G710’s don’t play as long as the Callaway Mavrik irons, however.
Instead, the perimeter tungsten weighting and the Hydropearl finish increase forgiveness – especially in a light downpour or dewy turf.
The Ping G710 irons also feature Variable Face Thickness face architecture.
At the dead center of the face, the material is thicker to give your shots more of the proverbial “oomph.”
Around the edges though, the material gets thinner for more accuracy and distance on less than perfect strikes.
It’s a bit like apples and oranges when it comes to the Callaway Mavrik irons and the Ping G710’s.
If you are still in need of more forgiveness we would strongly suggest the Ping G710’s.
However, if you want to unlock more distance, the Callaway Mavrik will be better for you.
