LONGEST 3 WOOD EVER

  1. 1. What is your longest 3 wood ever?



Recommended Posts

OK my longest ever was and still is my Titleist 970 series. Now you guys can tell me what I missed in the other category. I wasn't trying to slight anyone but it's hard sometimes to remember all.

 

PS: I'm sure this has been done before but with Exotics newest claim of 20 yards longer I though I'd bring this up again.

The Bag:

Right handed

I'm surprised no one from the V Steel enthusiasts thread has crashed this party :(

 

I personally have to combine forgiveness with length, and for that reason it's the TM 200 Steel for me.

Any particular model or do you like the whole line?

For me, the longest was the CB2, but the CB3 tour is really good.

I love the V-Steel, and the fact that it's in the bag and the 5050 is gone says it all, but the 5050 was longer for sure. Problem was, it was longer right, longer left, and I'll take shorter but straight any day.

I never could hit fairway woods, and when Hybrids came out, I was all over them. Then one day 2 years ago, I hit this used Taylor Made Burner 08 3 Wood. I was amazed at how much easier it was to hit, even more so for me, than my Adams Hybrid. I have never looked back, I don't think I could ever replace this club, it's my go to club in the bag!

When you find a 3W that you like, don't ever let it go. It's the hardest club in the bag to get just right, IMO. I've been through more 3Ws than anything else.

I can't see the need for longest 3 wood. Finding "the 3 wood" is defintely harder. And when you find it, you won't part with it for a long time. I'm still bagging a Titleist PT17

I have a revolving WITB policy.

I game the Adams BUL and at my swing speed (roughly 98-100) it's a beast. For the lower handicap player, they have the BTY version. Similar brazed crown technology (SS Body with Titanium face) to the TEE.

 

And it can be had for a song right now...

I think that is basically what everyone is saying. Usually you hit you favorite clubs the best, and the farthest.

I remember those getting good hype when they came out, but I never hear about them anymore. IIRC, that's a pretty big 3W, right? Any problems getting it off the deck?

Yeah, it's a good size head (acronym stands for "Big, Ugly and Long). But its also low profile and that makes it effective off the deck and from the tee. Honestly, the best fairway wood I've ever come across.

 

BTW - the BTY head is smaller so if you prefer smaller headed fairway woods then I'd give the BTY version a go.
