Callaway Mavrik Subzero Driver Review

Technology Used

FS2S Titanium

The FS2S Titanium is equipped in the Mavrik Subzero’s face — a kind of titanium that is lighter, which generates better performance.

Flash Face SS20

An artificial intelligence-generated that generates greater ball speeds on the face’s larger area.

T2C Triaxial Carbon

One of the Mavrik Subzero’s technology that is also light in material and is being placed in the crown. This feature allows more weight savings to be distributed in the essential areas of the club to boost the moment of inertia.

Jailbreak Technology

The vertical bars that are placed behind the bar’s face link the sole and the crown. This also provides more impact load for higher ball speeds.


The Callaway Mavrik Subzero Driver has a round compact head and a tall face, with deep orange accents. Its head is 450cc, which is quite smaller than the legal limit, but not in an intimidating way.

The crown is also beautifully designed with a subtle carbon fiber material that is only noticeable away from the ball. This balance the sharp visual, while minimizing the distraction upon the address.

Furthermore, the Mavrik Subzero has a more rounded shape than the Rogue Subzero. Its sole is also much flatter compared to the Standard Mavrik.


Similar to Epic Flash, Callaway’s Mavrik Drivers highlights focus around the club’s face. The company has invested in advanced technologies and super computers so that there A.I. can produce a greater club face. And this is how Flash Face SS20 is made — built for producing faster ball speeds across the face.

Then, combined with FS2S Titanium, this new face feature is 6 grams more lightweight compared to a traditional titanium.

For the spin, this club has produced lower than the standard Mavrik model, but the gap is not too far.

If you get to test any of the Mavrik drivers, you may find the Subzero to be the easiest and most forgiving club. However, this will still depend on your handicap and how long you’ve been using it. My best advice is to try them all to know which club works for you best.

And since the Mavrik Subzero Driver is longer than the Max and Standard models, you can get an additional five to ten yards of distance. Well, this is not too surprising since the Subzero is designed for a lower spin. And lower spinning clubs don’t generate much distance, so this driver does just fine. You just have to find the correct launch angle within the suitable, correct range, and the ball will travel further.


In terms of forgiveness (which is every golfer's concern), the Mavrik Subzero is a very forgiving driver, with consistent distance, at an average ball speed. However, it has the weakest forgiveness amongst the Mavrik lineups.

This is because of the 14g weight of the club’s rear that makes it less forgiving than the Standard Mavrik. But it is better than any of the cheaper-type drivers in the market.

And with the front weight, you need to hit the ball firmly, or else you will just miss the fairway.

Sound & Feel

Even though the performance of the Epic Flash was amazing, many players were not pleased with the sound. That’s why Callaway’s engineers placed Artificial Intelligence to help enhance the acoustics.

And because of the Internal Titanium Rib System, the Mavrik Subzero has been quieter compared to the Epic Flash. The sound upon impact is also much deeper.

This driver is also equipped with two adjustable and interchangeable weights that lets you change the feel and performance of the club as you need it. And when you flip the weights, you can still feel the difference, but not in an uncomfortable manner.

It has the similar pleasing sound as the Mavrik lineups, which is a firm ‘whack’, blended with slight clickiness.

Fitter’s Take

The Club Champion has a panel of Master fitters that shares their experiences, thoughts, and advice regarding what they observed during fitting.

In relation to the Callaway Mavrik Subzero Driver, fitters’ reviews stated it fits better ball strikes, while others say that it is a low spinning driver. Plus, misses on the toe have the ability to perform impeccably compared to heel strikes.

Some fitters also mentioned that the Subzero has better and more enhanced sound than the Epic Flash model. And they were very impressed by the shape.

The price of Callaway Mavrik Subzero Driver is relatively higher compared to other drivers in the market. But it is Callaway-made so expect the best features and technology, as well as the brilliant performance it offers.
