PXG 0211 DC Irons Vs Callaway Mavrik Irons Comparison And Review
It’s no secret that golf club manufacturers play copy-cat.
One set of irons will have essentially the same kinds of features as a set from another manufacturer but they’ll simply call the features by another name.
This can make it difficult to discern the true differences between clubs. To help clear the air a bit, we’re going to be comparing iron sets from two different manufacturers that have similar features.
PXG 0211 DC Irons Overview
PXG is a brand known for premium-grade golf clubs. With the PXG 0211 DC irons, the company is looking to make their clubs accessible to more players.
When we first got our hands on the PXG 0211 DC irons, we could tell almost immediately that these were stripped-down versions of more expensive PXG clubs. They lack the premium-grade materials and forged construction as some of the company’s other models.
Still, we were impressed at the increased forgiveness of these irons. PXG’s aren’t typically known for forgiveness but the channel bored into perimeter of the face essentially widens the sweet spot. The channel helps the face to flex at more points.
The PXG feel was still intact with these irons. The miraging steel face not only plays hot; it adds more feedback and responsiveness to these irons. That coupled with the soft polymer core of these irons gives them a congenial feel.
Callaway Mavrik Irons Overview
The Callaway Mavrik irons are game improvement irons that play long, straight and would be a good fit for mid to high handicappers.
One of the copy-cat features we were talking about was the soft core materials in these 2 iron sets. PXG calls it “DualCor” and Callaway calls it “Microspheres.” The microspheres are made of urethane but they serve the same purpose as the polymer in the PXG 0211 DC irons: soften feel and preserve ball speed.
Instead of using an undercut channel though, Callaway opted to address forgiveness in the Mavrik irons by utilizing their Flash Face Cup design. It does the same thing though: preserves energy on shots hit around the face.
The Mavrik’s played a bit longer than the PXG 0211 DC and they have a larger footprint. This may make them the better choice for beginners and high handicappers. On the other hand, the PXG 0211 DC irons had a nicer feel and performed better around the pin.
The Sim Max are perfect for beginners and high handicappers to take their game to the next level with distance and forgiveness.
