Longest 3 Wood


LONGEST 3 WOOD EVER

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



Recommended Posts

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.

 

I guess the size disguised the fact that it's actually low profile.

 

I remember having them in store...I probably swung them a bit at one point, but they clearly didn't dethrone the V-Steel.

V-Steel is a good stick also - almost legendary.

I've been playing with a Titleist 909H 15* hybrid for a short while now. While the jury is still out, I'm finding it to be a good 3 wood substitute so far.

I've always heard those TEE 3wds were longer than most others -- some even bought 3 or 5 wds to use as 3wds. I bought both a CB1 and a CB2 at the end of last year, and just haven't been able to give them a good run-through yet.

For me my Orlimar tri-metal was great. I could hit that thing long a straight when I still played an R shaft and then I grew out of it. My Cally Xhot was long but hard to get up off the turf but easily a 250 yard club off the tee, almost like a driver. My Adams Speedline was not very long for me, maybe 225-235 and I couldn't see to get it up in the air. Now my 906F4 is about my 230-240 club and I can not only get the ball up but it stays pretty stright with the V2 in it.

Gamed a Callaway Steel=head for the best part of 8 years and never looked like taking it out of the bag until I won a Diablo (not Edge) late last year. Awesome club, maybe not quite as long as the Steel-head but with stock shaft it goes straight as an arrow and is easy to get off the deck. This same club is now in the bag of 2 regular playing partners as well, all converted.

I spent a little time with the Fast 10 5W today, not the 3W though.

This seems like an amazing club. At least by the first demo standards...

 

Fast 10 driver is a bomber for me too...

I'll second that, it's a very solid club, and I'm thinking of trying it out against my Nike when the weather gets better.

My furthest 3 wood is by far the Nike Sasquatch that i still have in my bag. Steel shaft, and everything else stock. This thing just goes. I've driven multiple par fours with it and have hit it over 300 a couple times. Great club and very easy to control

I used to have this OLD Taylormade 3 wood. It was like...one of the original burners. It was orange with a steel shaft. I swear you could pick a ball off a sidewalk like its nothing. It was STOLEN with the rest of my clubs 4 years ago right out of my shed. I honestly don't know what exact model was or I would have already bought one online in the used market.

Anyone playing a PING Rapture V2 fairway? I am playing with the idea of a 4 wood to get in that 4th wedge.

Just bought the V2 driver off the bay and it is a fantastic club.

Cobra S2 for me, that thing out drives my Diablo edge with ease. There is however a downside to the club in that you can't do one of those "let the club do the work" swings that my lessons coach keeps telling me. It needs a little extra oomphf when you swing but it goes like a rocket when you do.

I laught at your claims to fight a zombie apocalypse when most of you can't stand up to a Spider

The longest 3W I've ever had was a Krank Golf 15*; I could carry it 285 with that thing. The best overall 3W I've ever had would be a tie between the Cobra SS and a Cally X-tour, both in 13*. I currently have a Adams Speedline Fast 10 13.5* and I absolutely hate it. It is straight but short; I actually hit my 18* hybrid about 20yds longer. I'm going to trade it in for something new very soon.
