Bang-O-Matic 3 wood

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

It was asked if we've ever bought any DTC brands?  About 2 years after I started playing (15 or 16 years ago) I was in the market for a 3 wood, and after doing a fair amount of research I settled on a Bang-O-Matic 15 degree, because at the time it was the only 3 wood available that was pure titanium.  Many still are made of stainless today.  I've updated the shaft and still carry it because it's about the same head size as any club available today, and I'm convinced it's probably almost as hot as any newer brand.  Sometimes older still works....

I’ve still got my “Banger” driver from 20 years ago. It was stupid long, and my friends nicknamed it the banger. Good memories, plus I was actually young strong and pretty back then. Many drives over 300 with that thing. I should regrip it and take it out for a day for fun, stack it up against the g400 LST

Long time ago I had a SMT driver. Long and could not keep it from slicing, but that was more me. My brother in law has it now, but never plays. I might reclaim it to try out

I've got a Bang O Matic 3 wood but the shaft I put in it didn't work so I haven't messed around with it in forever.  I might need to pull it apart and try something else in it.


My bag is a revolving door!

Used a Mellow Yellow Driver I got of EBay for 2 years in high school, until I got my Nike SQ. Still have it around and now that I have a Mizuno ST180 I have a "trinity" of Primary Color drivers with those and my Wilson Deep Red. I remember those old SMT's mentioned above as well, I always wanted an O2 because of it's rust color and the no scorelines.

I had a few of the SMT drivers and really liked them. Which one did you have?

I've still got a Bangomatic 400 7.5 head laying around.  Face was so deep and that thing was loud even with hot melt.  I've thought about pulling the tip on one of these shafts laying around and putting the head on one of those to play around with for some giggles.
