    Appreciate all the responses. <br />
    My driver SS is high 90s<br />
    I like an open face <br />
    I typically hit the ball low. <br />

    I am doing some testing this weekend on the sim with 3 woods. T1100 just came in.<br />
    <br />
    Rogue SZ 15* Pro Orange<br />
    Epic SZ 13.5" T1100 Evenflow white<br />
    816 Alpha 14* HZRDUS Yellow<br />
    <br />
    I am not a high ball hitter either, driver SS is just a few MPH more.

    Another vote here for the 2016 M2 15*. Recently picked up a head and threw it on a Proforce V2 66s with proper tipping... This thing is almost as long as my G400 driver. I'm not a super long hitter so I'll take it, but my second option is a 915f 16.5*. Great high flight and likes to go straight, long, but not M2 long.

    I think any of the modern club heads could fill your need. I highly recommend you go get fitted for a proper shaft instead of focusing on the club head.<br />
    <br />
    I had an M2 3 wood that I just loved the look of. Couldn’t get any kind of consistency with it off the rack. Was fitted into a Tour AD and the difference was huge!<br />
    <br />
    Good luck!

    Another vote for the Big Bertha Alpha 816 - great low cost option, adjustable, low spin, looks great at address, and much easier to hit than the name suggests.

    I concur, and you can interchange shafts to find your optimal combination!

    Another vote for 816 alpha. I have one on bst if u wanna try it out, has a chrome elements shaft that fits your swing speed. <br />
    <br />
    Also a huge fan of the f8 and f8+ 3 woods. Baffler a are awesome. <br />

    F8+ was too small for me

    I wish the standard rogue was neutral and not closed. Wasn’t a fan of the sz. I wish they were adjustable too. Didn’t care for m3 head either. Currently using a m2 tour 3hl but looking forward to new heads in 2019. I’m curious how the new Titleist ts2 are. I like the adjustability of them. I don’t feel like ping fairways are that hot. I do love the ls driver though.

    My brother in law has the M2 HL 16.5 with AD-DI 7s and it’s a ridiculous combo. And he uses 75 gram graphite shafts in his irons. He hits that 3 wood so well i wonder why he even bothers with his M1 driver w 50 gram Tensei blue. I hit it too and am jealous:)

    My M2 with HZRDUS High loft was....high----way too high! It left too big a gap from driver.<br />
    My M4 tour with Oban Tour Limited shaft is the longest 3 I have hit. Second in length would be the now gone Rogue SZ with HZRDUS Yellow<br />
    <br />
    Of course my 3 wood is like some folks 3i :-). A super well struck 3wood for me is 235 carry so have to consider that in the equation. It is my club of choice for a carry of 220 to 235.

    Since I don't know your swing much....and going just by ballspeeds... I've tested just about every new 3wood in the last 3-4 years... and for pure ball speeds......<br />
    <br />
    Cobra LTD<br />
    Rogue SZ<br />
    M3<br />
    <br />
    ...produce the fastest ball speeds. The sleeve of the M3/LTD would allow you to tweak launch conditions.<br />
    <br />
    edit: ballspeeds validated on my GC2/HMT.<br />
    <br />
    Not sure about the Rogue or M3, but the Cobra LTD was crazy long. Like it messed with my yardage gaps it went so long. I am playing the F8+ now and it is more in line with what I like to see distance wise.

    Another vote for the Rogue woods. I have not hit a Callaway fairway club in years and the new ones are outstanding. I am also really liking the TM M4 Tour Fairway and the TS offerings . I can highly recommend any of these 3.

    Cobra LTD is one of the longest fairway woods I've ever hit.<br />
    <br />
    Some people have issues elevating them off the deck. Mine has an elements Chrome shaft and I have no problem at all. I had one with the stock Rogue Black shaft last season, and I do remember it being harder to get up in the air.

    I game a Callaway xr16. I'm not sure what its mechanically meant to do, and I've never hit it on a launch monitor, but on the course I hit high long bombs with it. I have no problem hitting it into greens because I can get it so high in the air.<br />

    I second this, got one off CPO<br />
    super easy to launch high and i gained some yards too.

    Did a bunch of testing today seems like I get the most carry and ball speed w the Rogue. Shaft was an Oban Izawa which was a nice surprise. But even w other shafts I seem to get the best performance from the Rogue head.

    For most carry into greens, get 3hl. For a lot of people they go further than a standard 3 wood. For a while I played a 17* M1 3hl and 19* M1 5 wood.
