I've read a few threads on the 5w vs. 3w debate; and the prevailing thought that, for a good many, 3w's are just harder to hit. I bag the G400's with Alta CB shafts and can hit both pretty reliably, though the 5w a little more so. Both are set at nominal loft. My carry with the 3w is 185-195 and the 5w 170-180. I've noted a few suggesting to use a 3w length shaft in a 5w. This will be easy enough to test, but I'm curious how many are actually gaming this set-up? Ultimately, I'm finding myself using the 3w quite a bit on several courses I play. I'm on the hunt for another 10-15 yards carry as those same courses/holes are problematic getting GIR's w/o two coined strikes. My 4i is less reliable and pretty much ends up between these carry distances. Presuming a swap of the shafts simply gets my 5w carry same as my 3w, will the added shaft length reduce strike reliability - essentially robbing Peter to pay Paul? Maybe I'd be better looking for some hotter face fairway woods or perhaps a crossover iron (haven't even looked at/tested this option)... but these PING's sure are the easiest to hit off the deck I've tried so far.
