Looking for some advice about fairway woods. I've always struggled to elevate any fairways from the deck. I'm working on a couple swing changes to hopefully help with that, but was wondering if you guys have any help for me in looking at some clubs/shafts to make it a little easier on me.

 

I'm mostly looking at a weak three/four wood in the 16.5* range. My short list: XR/XR16, a few different exotics XCG7/E8/EX9 and a few cobras fly-z/F6 baffler (I've read some good things even though it's not a true fairway).

 

I'd appreciate any input out there. Thanks everyone!

You can't go wrong with Cobra. You can get a 5 wood that cranks down to 17*. The shaft is a bit smaller than the 3 wood and I have found it way easier to hit consistently. Hope that helps!

I struggled with numerous 3 woods over the last 7 years.  In fact the last 3 wood I had confidence in was the Bertha warbird.  After Adams came out with the Tight Lies it seemed as though everyone followed suit with a shallow face.  Sure it made sense, but never appealed to my eye.  That is until I picked up a TMAG mini driver in 16*.  Yes it's a big honkin thing, but for whatever reason I'm automatic with it.  Put a good move on the ball, and she'll go.   It definitely gets up in the air.  Mine has the Matrix white tie (high launch), and I picked it up on ebay new for under a bill.  Best buy in my bag.

Tried the AeroBurner 14°, didn't work as well for me... :(

 

Now have a Cally Mini 1.5 which I am liking :)

I'm playing the F6 fairway wood and no BS, it's the easiest fairway wood I've ever played. I have it set to 15.5* with the weight forward and it's is easy to hit off the turf or tee, is forgiving, and more than long enough. It has a nice high boring flight with this setup. I haven't tried the F7 but, the new rails are suppose to be a big help. Give both a try and IMHO you won't be disappointed.

Just updating my search. After searching forever I found something I think I'm going to like. Picked up a TEE e8 16.5 with a kuro kage blue shaft from global golf for 70 bucks. Should be here next week sometime. When I get a chance to hit it I'll post back.

 

Really wanted to find an f7 for a steal but little too spend right now. Maybe next year when the price drops.

I hope you enjoy the TEE as much as I do, I like the XCG5,and 6 so I haven't tried anything newer, eventually I may have to try something newer but I can still get these for around 50 bucks so I haven't looked at the newer.

I've had the same problem for too many years. Gone thru a shh&&?@$d of fareway woods and different shafts to no avail.

Right now working for me is driver, 4 hybrid with 1.5" longer than std shaft and the rest irons. I gave up tinkering, just gave up.

Hope u find your mix.

Got an XR16 - a 5W, not a 3W - with the stock Speeder 565 shaft, and I am really happy with it. Easy to hit, ball pops off the face and it works hard to help me send it straight.

Yeah, the AeroBurner 3w doesn't work for me either.  Guess what I have in the bag ?  Yep, Aeroburner 3W,  :wacko:   It got so bad that I pulled the 3W and just have a 3Hybrid (yep, an Aeroburner too) for longer par 4s and par 5s.  It is also giving me grief so I'm thinking about replacing it too.  It's been a hit or miss club for me.  Too many misses though.

Ha - also had two AeroBurner hybrids in the bag .. for only a short time....

 

Switched to Cobra F6s when I got the F6 irons and then switched those to Cally 5W + Cally 4H which seem to be working for me (well, for the time being anyway, until those decide to gang up on me and mutiny.....).

If you can find a X2Hot 3W, can't recommend it enough... can't find any used ones in Europe (and in good condition)

If I was in the US, I would be buying them all!

If you want to save some dough, X2 Hot and JetSpeed are also very good.

3W used to be a club I never used, now it's my go to club when my driver is not behaving.

And the 5W JetSpeed just replaced my Adams Super LS 19* hybrid.

 

But the best way to learn it is to take a lesson or two.

I agree with X2 Hot. Large face and very easy to get up. I replaced it because the trajectory was higher than I wanted.

Personally, Ping has always been synonymous with high flight for me.

Get the Pro version with Aldila Green. Brings the trajectory down.

Dude - I've been playing the XCG6 16.5deg 4-wood for the last couple of years and it has never left the bag. I'm in the process of trying to find a 7-wood to accompany it but no luck thus far. The loft on the 4-wood is perfect for me and I find that it is super consistent for me. I added a Paderson FW shaft last year and that combo is unbeatable - I can't see it ever leaving my bag. Would be interested to see how the E8 16.5 goes for you.

Xcg6 is the best.

I tried a Titleist 915 F2 yesterday that was very hitable. Any comments from the group on that one?
