Largest CC Fairway Wood

Recommended Posts

What current fairway woods have the largest cc's? I am looking for a 3-wood to possibly replace my tried and true Tour Edge E8 Beta. I love the look of this club and want something similar. Some of the new stuff I have tried are very small and seem more geared towards hitting from the fairway. While I want that feature, I usually hit them off the tee box.

If you chief use for it is as a tee club, you might want to take a look at Callaway and TaylorMade's Mini driver lines. I think neither are in their current lineups, but eBay would be an option. For deep faced 3 woods, I took a long look at the Tour Edge CBX T3: https://shop.touredge.com/products/exotics-cbx-t3-fairway-wood.

Seems like the Cobra Radspeed Big Tour would be exactly what you’re looking for

Yes. That is along the lines of what I want. The big tour and mini drivers are on my list. Thank you for the all of the suggestions

To those who are gaming the larger volume 3w's, is there a trade off when hitting them of tight lies? I'd love some added distance on my 3w but find the G400 so easy to strike off fairways, I'd hate to give up that aspect.

Fairway woods are generally much easier to hit off of the tee than the fairway.  If your primary use of a fairway wood is off of a tee as a Driver replacement, than one with a deep face, less loft, and perhaps smaller front to back will deliver better ball speed and reduce spin.  For one used mainly off the deck, a shallower face, more loft and more weight in the rear of the club will help to get the ball into the air and provide enough spin to keep the ball in the air and land softer on the greens.

A better option for many amateurs with swing speeds under 100 MPH would be a 4 or 5 wood instead of a 3 wood to get more carry distance, more launch and probably about the same total distance.  The 7 wood is like magic for many people.  If you’ve never tried one I would encourage you to do so.  Dustin Johnson put one in his bag last year and has enjoyed a lot of success with it ever since.

Higher swing speed players might need less loft to get their ideal launch conditions if they have a naturally high ball flight to begin with.

In general fairway woods are some of the toughest clubs to hit well for most golfers and when you find one that works it tends to stay in the bag for a long time.

I have probably replaced my fairway woods more than any other clubs trying to find ones that work.  This past year I finally settled on a couple that are likely to stay in the bag.  I’m using a Tour Edge EX 10 16.5 deg. 4 wood with a Fujikura Fuel Red 60 S shaft and a Tour Edge XCG7 21 deg. 7 wood with the same shaft.  The 4 wood has a deeper face and is a weapon off the tee and the 7 wood has a shallow face, very stretched back with high volume, that allows me to hit the ball with more carry and easier to launch from the fairway.  The 7 wood is my 205-215 yard club.  I only hit my 4 wood from the fairway when I have no hazards to carry because it launches low and runs like a scalded dog. 

Best wishes to you as you search for your “Unicorn/Holy Grail”.

To echo this, I always used my 3/4w off the tee and 7w from the turf, so I got a used Big Bertha Mini last season and it was money off the tee for me on tighter holes or days when my driver didn't want to behave... which is a lot of days.
