I am a huge Mizuno irons fan. I am not a 3 Wood fan. I recently bought an ST190G driver and loved it so much, I got a ST190 TS 3 Wood and gamed it this weekend. I loved this so much I just placed my o

Ditto. Lately I've been using my 3W exclusively off the tee as my driver and I got into a fight and I haven't made it to the range yet to knock some sense into it.

I love Henrick. If I were smart I'd just leave my driver in the car. I carry the Ice Man about 255, and have numerous trajectories with it. Nice firm fairways and the low bullet I could probably stretch 270.

 

This is why I want a Phrakenwood so bad. Small head 10° of loft and bombs away.

 

I have it set in the stock setting of 14.5°, could probably take it down to 13° I think it is.

 

Off the deck I like to fade it.

 

My money club off the tee for sure.

I have a Cobra F8 3-4 and 5-6 Fairway Woods. I use the 3-4 @ 14.5* on a few par 5's and on #18 tee at my home club. The 5-6 is set at 18.5* and used for approaches at 165 yards. I like both and enjoy having them in my bag.

I'm actually debating on what to do with mine. It recently went on the Disabled List after the shaft busted near the adaptor so that left me with my 5W which I can nearly hit as long and sometimes even better. I actually had a few awesome shots with it last Saturday so the decision to get it fixed may come later rather than sooner. The other kicker for me is that I will may be adding a 4'th wedge potentially so I need to make a decision on what to ditch...Maybe.

 

I am thinking of replacing my original broken 3W shaft that was mid-flex with a stiff-flex like my driver. If I go this route, it will take some testing to see if it remains and the 5W goes. The 5W BTW had mid-flex also.

 

Ahhhh, messing with gear is fun...Especially when you get just enough info and experience to be dangerous... ;)

I hit my 3W maybe once a round. It is on the hot seat too. I hit it once off the tee today and it found the fairway..... err the wrong fairway that is.😟 I can hit it off the tee but I would much rather use my 2 iron. I can hit the 2 straighter and the driver more consistently.

I have a cheap Adams Speedline 3 wood that I paid $10 for, and you couldn't pry it out of my hands. It's money off the tee (most of the time) and I hit it fairly well off the deck.

My 3w is one of my most reliable clubs - off the tee - so even if I don't use it a lot it stays.

I don't carry a 3w. I use my Wishon 4w. In fact I only bag 13 clubs. This setup has worked everywhere I play.

Absolutely. 3 wood with 8 grams of lead at 3 o'clock and 4 grams 5 o'clock straightedge it right out off the tee and I can still trap it off the deck for a low cut

Nope! I can hit my driver solid but have never had much success with my 3W or a Hybrid.

Up until a week ago my bag went driver to 4 iron.

 

I knew for myself that I had a big yardage gap, so I started experimenting with hybrids and had little to no success, really struggled to find any consistency with them.  I am trying out a king cobra oversized 4/5 hybrid now and first hits I like it a lot. time will tell .
