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.

PXG 0211 First Impressions

We didn’t think that the PXG 0211 irons were going to perform much differently than other PXG irons we have tested based on the muscle back design.

However, they did. There was a slight improvement in overall feel and forgiveness. We tested the 4 and 5 irons first and found that we were getting better ball speed on shots around the crown and sole than with other models.

The vibration dampening properties of the COR2 insulation also made the long irons more comfortable on full swings. The PXG 0211 irons also produce pretty good launch angles thanks to moderately generous loft.

The short irons didn’t offer much in the way of workability though. Although, that might not be such an issue for beginners and high handicappers. Still, this is something you may want to consider if you plan on investing in the PXG 0211 irons as a long-term set.

Callaway Mavrik – First Impressions

The Callaway Mavrik Irons look amazing and deliver a ton of distance and accuracy with low dispersion between strikes.

Each Iron is crafted using Artificial Intelligence that ensures the weighting is in the optimal position and that these Irons maximize their potential.

They have 360 Face Cup technology which allows for some flex in the iron face on impact resulting in maximum ball speed and distance.

The clubs have a lot of loft, allowing you to get the ball in the air while Tungsten Weighting, keeps the center of gravity low in these irons and the Urethane Microspheres reduce vibrations on off center hits.

These are excellent Game Improvement irons from 2020 that come at an affordable price.

Who are the PXG 0211 Irons for?

While the PXG 0211 irons are billed as forgiving game-improvement irons, we have our doubts.

Yes, high handicappers and beginners will love the soft feel of these irons. Additionally, the low spin rate in the long irons means that high handicappers will be able to get down the fairway quicker.

However, these irons won’t do much for a high handicapper in terms of accuracy. If you are struggling to produce straight shots with your irons, don’t expect much help from the PXG 0211 irons.

In reality, the PXG 0211 irons would actually be better-suited to mid-handicap players.

If you aren’t having much trouble finding the sweet spot with your irons then the PXG 0211’s would be worth a look.

The 0211 Family

Included in the 0211 series of irons from PXG are the 0211 DC and 0211 ST sets. The 0211 DC irons feature a dual layer of polymer inside the head which helps preserve the maximum amount for energy. These are most certainly distance irons for high to mid handicappers.

The 0211 ST irons on the other hand have a solid-body design and have been triple forged for exceptional feel and enhanced workability. These blade irons feature a muscle back design and offer exceptional greenside spin control which makes them ideal for low handicap players.
