    Consistently higher ball speeds for me. The 2016 m2 is the best 3 wood off the deck and still has the versatility from the tee. Buying a backup as we speak

    Why the M2 2016 vs. M2 2017?







    It's better in almost every way. Feel, sound, flight. When I caved in my 2016, the replaced it with a 2017. I got rid of the 2017 shortly after.




    How does M2 2016 stack up with M4?

    any love for the ts2/ts3?

    I hate 3 woods. Hate. Cannot hit off turf and hadn't bagged one in 4 seasons.



    Swapped to a titleist setup this year and on a whim picked up a 917F2 to test. Weight toward the toe and suddenly is the best stick in the bag.



    I've hit everything on the market and nothing can beat the consistency and sound of my titleist F2. Some are longer, none are better.

    I really like Callaway 815 Alpha 14*. I have speeder 665 stiff, tipped 1/2" playing at 42.5" 30 gram weight in front set at 15 degrees. This is a great club for me. 225 carry with 3200-3300 spin. Most three woods I spin out of control and they go no where. Swing speed on trackman around 98mph.


    This is what my Son uses. He has driver speed of 116+.

    It seems his has a Diamana D+ shaft in it.

    Fairway or teebox, it's great.

    Myself, a 2014 Big Bertha works. I can't hit it wrong, fairway or tee.

    My Son is looking at the new Rogue series woods and driver.

    Total distance I have never hit any 3 wood longer than the Callaway XR16 but it isn’t the most accurate/consistent. All around playability, I still give the nod to the Titleist 913F.

    I can’t get rid of my xhot pro. I have bought and tested just about every new 3 wood out there and I haven’t found one yet that out performs it... yet.

    Have only played/still have each of the tour heads and both are very long and straight.

    M4 launches a touch lower.

    I'm not good enough for a 3 wood.



    But my X2Hot 4 & 7 woods are unbeatable.

    Trusty TM R11 Ti 3 wood with a TP graphic RIP B70S. Not the longest, just always consistent for me with so many good memories to call upon, I can’t let her go.

  • ericm007ericm007 Be the ball! Members Posts: 383 ✭✭
    I looked for a three most of this year, not consistent with most, finally gave up and then tried a TEE EX10 Beta 16.5. I put my Rogue Silver 70S shaft in and it is just as long as the three's I tried, more consistent, and somewhat workable. For me at least it was the best solution to the three wood dilemma. FWIW I swing a driver between 100-105.



    Good luck.

    Hardest spot in the bag to settle on. The last real good 3 wood I had was a V steel. SLDR wasn’t bad but I wasn’t consistent with it.



    Good luck in your search!

    Cobra F8 is the best I've hit. Something about those rails when hitting it out of the turf. I have no fear of hitting down when needed. It's also my most consistent club off the tee BY FAR! I give up a little distance, but when I need to hit a tight fairway or I'm not hitting my best, that's the club I'm grabbing.

    I’m still rocking the 2016 M2. I’m a fan of the upright angle so it’s working great. Sound is meh but good results.

    #1: TEE CBX 3 wood, super long off the tee and easy to hit off the ground.

    #2: Rogue Sub Zero 13.5, Low spinning off the tee and the shallow face is nice off the ground, not as straight as the CBX

    #3 2016 m2 deep face 3HL, Not as long as the other two obviously but feel and sound is great.

    For me it's my Vapor Fly - I have fallen out with the shaft at the moment (too soft and spinny) so currently trying new ones, but the head works that well for me I'm going to stick with it, despite the pain of finding Nike fairway adapters.



    If I had to replace it I'd go for one of TS2/3, M3/4 or the F8+.

    I hit some bombs with a 17 M2 but find I am more consistent with a 917 F2. Dont hit it as far but fits my gapping and suits my eye.

    King LTD is great if you have some speed/launch. Very low spin, very forgiving, and an amazing feel. Also I love that I can play it shorter and easily add weight via the space port

    I have not tried the new ones but the last I tried was the Callaway Epic Sub Zero and that was amazingly good, long and forgiving. Compact and nice sound, just did not like the green and composite look.

    I actually didn’t like the Rogue when I tried it. I love my Cobra F7 3 wood. I do like the Rogue hybrid though.
