I like the head cover as well. I did have someone randomly comment how they loved the driver(let them hit it), but hated the head cover... Hated a red, white, and blue headcover! So I accused them of

Nice cleanup in Stage 3 Easy32........it's prob just a question of timing for your 3 wood.....with a tad more lag, your 3 wood will probably hit square and beat the Ping 25.

I like the Callaway but the Ping also suits my eye a little better. But because the 3wood is also a little stronger it doesn't create enough distance separation from my driver. I actually just get out in front of the Callaway a little more so I hit it right. As weird as it sounds I like the ping going a little shorter. I'm anywhere from 250-260 with the ping and the Callaway is a little further. Off the tee it's not worth hitting the 3 wood for accuracy purpose.

I'm jealous of the success some of you had with the fairway woods. I wanted to fall in love but it wasn't meant to be. In fact, it was horrible. Like I said, not mad, just jealous of y'alls success.

Just the opposite. I like the fairway wood and wasn't a fan of the driver. Really interesting test.

This driver (XR 16 Pro) is one of the best that I have hit...by far! It's a great feeling driver with a nice sound and without the loud ping.

 

The ONLY down fall it takes time to find a good head/shaft combo. I have finally found a combo that I can play. It's a fairway finder and deep as hell!

 

Played this weekend and I was hitting some long balls and fairway on a tight course. During play I think that I was able to sell two of them. I have owned the M1 and it was nice but too much "tinkering" lead me to hooks and pushes. Keep it simple is the way I like to live!

 

Just picked up the XR 16 pro 3 wood with a Graphite Design BB and it's a rocket! More to come on that later

Interesting. I had the same issue. I switched out the shaft I got with it to the Kuro Kage. I think I can swing it much better now.

I just picked up the G30 to compare to the xr16. My bag is mostly ping anyways and I tend to hit pings well. I know for a fact, me struggling with the driver is my swing and not making great swings But Im hoping to narrow in my misses. I've hit it once at the range and hit it great for the first 15-25 balls and the swing got a little loose from pounding balls. So not sure where I stand yet

I'm still gaming hte XR16 fairwood wood. However the driver is currently sitting in my bag, probably never coming out more than once or twice a round. I'm hitting the Fly-Z so much more consistent that it really isn't close.

I think it's like most things,everything fits everyone differently. It's also a mindset and mental lol. I said in my very first statements that the 3wood was going to have to be flawless to replace my ping 3 wood. I could happily play the callaway 3 wood. I just prefer my ping. As for the driver, I can hit it well and then I miss it, it's an Indian issue, not an arrow issue.

Believe me, I was and still am hoping that the Callaway becomes a can't miss club for me and a weapon for me. But I recently purchased the g30 to compare it to and see if it can improve me. I'm a driver away from being back to pretty darn good at this silly game.

I know I'm a little behind, but I just picked up one of  these, XR 10.5* driver, I am itching to get out. I'm a bit of a hacker and it sounds like this should be a little more forgiving than the 20 year old inherited Wilson 1 wood I've been using.
