How to adjust your Callaway Mavrik driver

When it was released the Mavrik driver from Callaway was one of the most technologically advanced available. A new weight-saving Titanium Flash Face, the bracing and stabilising Jailbreak bars, and the light Triaxial Carbon Crown combine to make the Mavrik one of the very longest and most forgiving drivers. Added to this is the ability to dial in loft and flight characteristics through Callaway's superb Opti-Fit hosel.

Before you start.

However, before you start, take a look at the underside of the driver. You'll see a single weight port in the back, and while this weight can be removed with your wrench, it is already optimised by Callaway engineers to suit the length the driver is cut too. We recommend you don't touch this.

Back to what you can adjust.

To open or loosen the shaft screw in your driver, place the wrench into the top of the screw and turn anti-clockwise, to tighten the screw you turn it clockwise. When fully tightened, the wrench will make an audible "CLICK" to let you know the sleeve is safely locked in place and to avoid over-tightening.

Before you start to open the screw, take a look at the marking on the head. There will be a little dash below the stated loft of the driver, and a matching one just above the hosel on the shaft. You want to make sure these line up when fixing the shaft in place. This will keep your grip lined up with at the address position.

When fully open the head can be easily removed from the shaft allowing the two cogs to turn independently. These cogs will indicate the setting available to you.

Callaway's Opti-Fit hosel allows you to add up to 2-degrees of loft or go 1-degree lower. Then for each loft, you can choose an N for neutral and a D for draw.

Start with the loft.

The key to the setting up the Opti-Fit hosel is to find your desired loft first. You have a few options - S for stated (the loft stamped on the head), +1, +2, or -1.

A working example.

If you want to hit the ball a little higher and add some spin, you might select +1 - which is on the bottom cog.

Once in place (i.e. lined up with the dash on the hosel) you can now turn the top cog and select N (Neutral) or D (Draw) - it's like a little jigsaw. Ensure your settings are lined up between the hyphens and then put the shaft back in the head, tightening the screw until the "CLICK".

If you want to hit the ball a little lower, repeat the process, starting with -1 and proceeding from there.

So that is how to adjust your Mavrik driver. And it is worth your while having a play with the different settings on the range to dial in the one that suits you best.

It's also very important to remember that you can adjust your driver on the range or at any time before or after your round, just not during it!

Designed for the better player, the Callaway Mavrik Sub Zero driver gives you the ability to control the spin characteristics so better ball strikers can gain a few extra yards.

The Mavrik Max driver from Callaway is the most forgiving in the family. Moveable weight technology in the sole, a full 460cc clubhead, and hosel adjustability can give this drive a big anti-slice bais.
