Wish I could get in on the longest 3 wood - but realistically, I just can't control them - I like to overswing and I spray the thing right and left.

 

I'm now gaming a United 5w that is plenty long and LOVES finding the fairway.

 

I guess in the game of "longest" I've never gotten ahead and tried to fly the "motion in the ocean" notion

i gotta agree tim. the reason i use my 3 wood is mainly when my driver is off and i need to find the fairway, even tho the RBZ was consistently longer i cld not game it because it was spraying a lil bit too much.

 

if it was a tossup between being 17 yards shorter or 17 yards longer into the rough/under the trees/OB ill take 17 yards shorter on the fairway all day long. Not dissing the RBZ, im sure it was me and not the club. but i cldnt get along with it as much as i tried and wanted to

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.

 

 

 

The V steel was a very hot face. I loved mine and may look to get one again.

I am by no means a long ball hitter, but can usually hit my fairway woods pretty good...

 

Previously, I was getting 185-200 yds from my 3 wood off the deck.

 

I recently picked up a Cally FTiz 3W to match my 11* Driver. My 3W is now 190-210 yds.

 

Interesting that this is from a club that is no longer made.....they only made them in 2010.

My dad has a V-Steel 7 wood. It would be in my bag if it was a stiff shaft. I should buy one on eBay and reshaft it with a C.Kua. That would rule.

I was told 5 or 6 years ago by a TMag rep at a demo day that the fairway woods are not subject the "trampoline effect" restrictions that apply to the drivers so you can get some extra pop with a 3 wood head that you wouldn't with a driver.

Nonchalant putts count the same as chalant putts.

I have been on a quest for a good three wood forever. I have a 980F 13 that is pretty good but today I recieved my newest acquisition. A R11 T3-14*. I put this on a Graphite Design Tour ADDI 7 Stiff shaft that I tipped 1 1/2 inches. I have only hit this club once, I got it this afternoon and, well, honestly asside from the rain there was plenty of good golf to watch on TV.

 

I did hit this one time today, and it appeared to be a real beast. In addition to the ball seeming to really pop off of the face, this shaft, originally a driver shaft is really hot also.

 

I was planning on having the Talamonti in it but it was shorter than I wanted and decided to put that in a 18* hybrid. I will test both of these out on the course in the morning. I have not changed my vote just yet but I would not be surprised to be changing this tomorrow.

Not sure if you would call it a 3 wood or even a strong 3 wood, but the longest I've ever hit was a a rocketballz 13 degree. I think its a two wood, but I guess its just a strong 3 wood. Practically a drive. I usually hit 3 wood on a par five where there is water 260 yds away. Mine at the time was an i15 14 degree, and I would come at least 20 yds short of the water. One time I was playing with a friend and borrowed his 13 degree rocketballz, sent it straight into the creek! I usually hit my driver 275, so I couldn't believe it.
