Callaway Mavrik Vs Taylormade P790 Irons Comparison And Review
Taylormade and Callaway are no stranger to going head to head with their irons and while the P790’s are aimed at Mid Handicappers, the Mavrik Pro irons in the Mavrik series will fall into the same category.
Callaway Mavrik Pro Overview
The Mavrik Irons come in three flavours, Mavrik, Max and Pro. The pro version of these irons are most useful for this comparison but the similar Mavrik and Mavrik Max Irons are better for High Handicappers and beginners.
The Mavrik Pros are going to suit those mid handicappers closer to the Higher handicap scale, they are easy to hit, have large sweet spots, minimal offset, strong lofts but a thinner top line for better workability.
The weighting in the irons is tungsten and placed with artificial intelligence for perfect COG placement.
Urethane microspheres fill the cavity in these irons and dampen any unwanted vibrations.
What impresses most about the Mavrik pros is the distance control and consistency with lower dispersion across many strikes. Overall a very nice set of sticks.
Taylormade P790 Irons Overview
The P790’s are a beautiful set of forged irons from Taylormade with the workability and feel of a players iron coupled with the forgiveness of a game improvement iron.
The P790’s achieve this by filling the head of the club with a speed foam which is much softer on impact than a traditional forged iron.
The clubs feature tungsten weighting in the heel and toe along side progressive ICT technology to increase the size of the sweet spot.
The clubs look nice and compact at address and the thin top line really comes into play with the enhanced workability of the shorter irons.
If you are on the side of mid handicapper closer to the high side, the Mavriks or Mavrik Pros might be a better option but if you are aiming to become a low handicap player and want to try out a forged iron with forgiveness, the P790’s are going to be an excellent choice.
Both really nice sets of clubs from the respective brands.
