Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any input on whether its worth waiting till next year to upgrade my 3 wood now or wait until for the 2021 releases. I currently game a Cobra Comp 3 wood so technology wise everything is going to be better than what I currently have.

The problem with this dilemma is that is will ALWAYS happen, regardless of when you purchase your clubs; there are always going to be new clubs on the horizon. For me, it comes down to one thing: how important your budget is to you. If budget plays a big part in your decision, I'd buy when the current year's model's price drops. If budget doesn't matter, then go ahead and wait for the new models! There shouldn't be a huge leap in technology between the two years. But, remember, no matter when you choose to upgrade, this problem is bound to arise!

The thing that is making me consider next year is that here in New Jersey the season has about 2 months left at best so by the time i get fitted and receive said club I will get only a small handful of rounds in with it before the end of the season.

Are you looking at a particular model or manufacturer? Companies like Cobra and Titleist are probably not releasing their new woods until late in the season or the offseason. I’d say wait if you’re interested in those. The Titleist TS series are discounted now, though. If you don’t think you can get significant practice in over the winter with the new clubs, I’d say wait. But if you can get to the range often, I’d take advantage of the discounted models now.

I did not know that both the Titleist and Cobra were both discounted. I might have to make a point to try them out now in that case.

Are you going to get fitted for your new club or just buy it off the rack?  If you are going to get fitted, I would think now would be a better time to buy than in the Spring because your swing is in better shape than after a several month layoff.  I would think it would be best to get fitted to your real swing.

I do plan on getting fitted and with that in mind it does make sense to do it now when I am pretty confident with my swing.

There won’t be a lot of club advances between this years and last years models. For the amount you probably should be hitting 3 wood get a cheaper model from this year. Since we are reaching the end of the golf year, Probably want to get fit sooner rather than later to get ideal configuration unless you want to hunt the internet for specific configuration.

Fair point. There are plenty of times where I keep my driver in the bag and opt for my 3 wood more often on tight par 4's then trying to reach a green in 2 on a par 5. Keeping the ball in play and out of trouble off the tee is really my weakest part of my game right now.

I am leaning more towards a new 3 wood this year its just a matter of pulling the trigger.

Just a comment about your off the strategy. I’ve been following the work of Scott Fawcett; which is basically the same advice as my instructor is giving me, play the driver. You really gain no advantage by playing 3 wood off the tee. Dispersion patterns for 3’wood are basically the same as driver. Learn to hit driver.

This is usually my strategy however the difference between driver and 3 wood off the tee is a difference of 70 yards vs 100 yards so currently the better option is a more consistent option off the tee.

Me too, but I have decided to wait a few weeks until Titleist's new clubs come out.  I love my Titleist hybrids so I think I should at least try their woods before I buy anything else, esp. when they are coming out soon.  [Note that my five wood is about 10 years old now so virtually all new ones should be better, although I do like my current five wood, which is why it is the oldest club in my bag.]

I just got a cobra speed zone on a discount, and it’s on a tensi blue stiff. I did a mild roger Dunn fitting to get there. I wanted a Mavrik really bad to match my new driver (which is insane). But nothing from any of the mav’s or sims, etc were beating my old callaway 816. They really hadn’t really tried to show me the cobra, but when I asked he said sure, let’s try it. It really put a beating on the others in the simulator, but on the real track I’m getting 10-15 Yards more.

it wasn’t a club I used a whole lot but now I’m toying with reaching a few of the par 5’s , especially if the Mav driver send out a good one. (Spoiler-the Mav driver is putting me in a lot of new places that are closer to the pin) 

I got the white paint model vs the yellow one which has a few things I really like. First off, it isn’t the black and yellow bumblebee thing. The Mav already pushes my limits with its super ugly paint and head cover, but it’s such a monster I can live with the aesthetics. The Cobra white version has a matte black with a few white accents which is truly a beautiful thing vs the glossy black and yellow...yuck!

its easy to hit as the old f8 5-6 wood I picked up a few months ago, so it appears I’m turning into a Cobra fanboy...

Knowing that the Cobra clubs are discounted is a huge plus on getting a new 3 wood this fall. I love the black and white finish on the cobra speedzone as well as the color scheme on the tour version.

Usually the advice is to hold on to a 3 wood once you've found one you're in love with.... but with one that old it might be worth looking at one sooner than later. I found distance and forgiveness to have really come thru on a lot of these new models. You should see some good deals coming out soon on current models since many OEMs will be releasing their new stuff soon... maybe give a G410 fw a whirl and match your driver? Either way. Now or later, my thought is it will be a significant upgrade to what you're already playing.

@ZMendle10 I would get whatever you need when you think you need it. If you have room for improvement then why wait. Year to year differences are minimal at best. Years to years there is marked difference. Go for it and enjoy.

I have a couple holes I play on the regular where a driver goes through the fairway or it's dead left/dead right punch out for any miss, so I had been playing an R11 for the year. I got a deal on a TaylorMade SIM 3 Wood with the Ventus Blue shaft for $225 and pretty happy with it after two weeks. I think I've gained at least 5-10 yards without any other changes and seems like the misses don't move as much as they used to move. We'll see how it goes with the season winding down in Minnesota pretty quick.

I have a couple holes I play on the regular where a driver goes through the fairway or it's dead left/dead right punch out for any miss, so I had been playing an R11 for the year. I got a deal on a TaylorMade SIM 3 Wood with the Ventus Blue shaft for $225 and pretty happy with it after two weeks. I think I've gained at least 5-10 yards without any other changes and seems like the misses don't move as much as they used to move. We'll see how it goes with the season winding down in Minnesota pretty quick.

The SIM is definitely on my radar this year. I think I am going to schedule a fitting and pull the trigger this year. I'm feeling pretty good about my swing of late and couple that with the fact that there are some solid deals out there right now it just makes sense.

Make sure to toss a cobra speedzone into your mix of testers. I’d be interested to see how it flies for you. It’s been very good for me. It was the last club on my desired list, but won hands down...

let us know which way you go...!
