Will depend on the player;  I hit the 410 much better than the Mavriks.  

Yup. Goes for every club in the bag

I demo'd all 3 Mavrik drivers vs my Epic Flash gamer and felt like the standard was the best of the 3.  None I felt were as good as the Flash, they seemed to produce a lot more spin for me but that might have more to do with the shaft in the demo drivers.  It was strange that for both myself and the guy doing the fitting the Sub Zero had a really high ball flight.  

Now I did just pick up the 15 degree fairway wood and that club is unbelievable.  Really easy to get up even on shots low in the face.  I can't be happier with it.  Plus, I only had to come out of pocket about $70 because I won some shop credit in a Super Bowl pool (thanks Mahomes for for TD at the end of the first)!

Did you put your shaft in the mavrik?

No, at the time I didn't give a ton of thought to switch them out.  I might mess around with it in the next week.  The shop is good about letting me try things out so I'll grab the Mavrik heads and try them with my shaft.  We were really out there for my son who was getting fit for irons.  Getting to play around with the different Mavrik heads was just bonus.

I demo’d the mavrik max tonight and it was amazing. First swing off the rack with out any adjustment and it went 225. Not afraid to admit that is 3 yards longer than my best drive recorded on arccos with my 410 plus last year. I’m heading back tomorrow and get fit for it and see where we can get it. Hit 5 shots all over 215 and all fairway finders.. I’m impressed.

Make sure you take your 410 to compare side by side on the launch monitor.   Not saying the mavrik isn't longer,  but unless you are comparing side by side you won't ever know.

Just wrapped up testing and baselined with my 410 as suggested. Longest with 410 was 225, avg 217. Learned that from following this group.

mavrik with evenflow riptide 50 shaft longest was 237 with ball speed consistently 130 avg 227. Tried all three heads, multiple shafts l, threw in the speed zone and the mavrik max with set up just clicked for me.

 

The fitter and I were both floored at how different the results were vs the other combinations .

Reply , total distance. Was getting good roll out with both. 223 was longest carry if I recall from mavrik.

I got fit for the Mavrik recently by a club pro with Flight Scope. A few interesting findings with the Mavrik -- some of which might also be accredited to the shaft (GD Tour AD-XC 7X)

1. Standard head was spinning similar to the Epic SZ head I was comparing it to, even when lofted up 3.5 degrees from the Epic SZ. The shaft in my Epic SZ is supposed to be a very "low launch/low spin" shaft (Accra TZ6 65X)

2. Ball speeds and distance were VERY good on misses.

3. Launched on average 3-4 degrees higher than the Epic with the Accra shaft. This is likely with the increased loft, but I was never able to loft up without spin going through the roof.

Overall, I think the head looks awesome, sounds great (personally much better than the Flash), and provides really good numbers.

Had a driver fitting at CC yesterday, used the standard Mavrik head to sort through shafts. There was one shaft that stood above the others for dispersion, my primary goal. Then tried the latest Ping, Titleist and Cobra heads with that shaft, none matched the Mavrik, so that’s what CC recommended of course. Since I’m still not sure where (my inconsistent) swing outweighs ideal fitting, I ordered the new shaft with my Rogue head since TXG reported them similar with the exact same setup as their Mavrik spec. So now if it doesn’t pan out on course real world, I’m out $500 less (for a Mavrik head). However, I really liked the Mavrik.

So no swap of shafts with the other heads to see if there was a better combo for the heads?

That’s Club Champions methodology. The fitter said the shaft is 80% of the optimization, so they pick a head *** and try shafts (8 IIRC). Once they’ve chosen a shaft, then try other heads (4 total). The “winner” is the combo with the best results. I said upfront I was looking for tighter dispersion period, whereas more distance is what more people want from a fitting.

I wouldn't think it would be necessary to try all combinations of shafts and heads, but just my uneducated opinion. At my request, he let me try the chosen shaft with my Rogue head too.

*** I think he picked Mavrik assuming I approved of Callaway because I have a Rogue - and I was fine with that. I’m sure I could have insisted on another head to start with if I asked.

That’s interesting. Everywhere I’ve been fit it’s find head/loft that gives best numbers and fine tweak with shaft.

The good thing that matters is you came away with something that works and that you know what the best combo for you is if you decide to change heads

I sure wish you’d have gone to my guy at CC in New Orleans as he fits to the head first, THEN shaft, which is what is recommended. Oh well. Hoping all works-out for the best!

I’ve never read that recommendation. But I have read that the right shaft is the priority, and where the biggest bang for the buck is in fitting. My launch angle, spin, apex height and descent angle were good from the start on my Rogue and the Mavrik, otherwise I’m sure he would have changed heads before taking me through shafts.

Here’s are two sources that show once a workable head, it’s shaft first, then alternate heads.

https://golfblogger.com/club-champion-driver-fitting/

https://pluggedingolf.com/club-fitting-club-champion/ 

Step #1: Find the Best Shaft

I’m not sure how you could evaluate a head with the wrong shaft? 

I think it's just semantics here. Yes, any reputable fitter will find a decent shaft to use to compare in multiple heads. A player won't swing comfortably if they have a poor shaft fit. So yes, technically the fitter will find a shaft that the golfer is comfortable with first before truly beginning the fitting. 

Once a comfortable shaft is found, then the fitter will cycle through heads to find a good fit. Once the heads have been narrowed down, then the true shaft fitting happens. 

This is what happened with me a True Spec. My fitter asked if I liked my current iron shaft and he saw my baseline numbers with it. He was happy with those baseline numbers so he then used that shaft (Modus 120x) as the shaft to start testing heads with. Once we narrowed the heads down to two choices, he started giving me different shafts so we could fine tune.. 

So no, the shaft isn't fit first, but a good fitter will find a good baseline shaft for the golfer to test with multiple heads to decide on the optimal head before finishing things up with the true shaft fitting

Anybody test the Mavrik/Mavrik SZ against the Cobra Speedzone Xtreme/Speedzone? 

I am curious which ones stood out positively or negatively in terms of distance, forgiveness, etc.
