As the title says, what is the smallest 5-wood out there? I like 5W over hybrids as hybrids tend to be more long heel-to-toe and I want a more rounded shape. But I also want to keep the profile as small as possible.

    The Callaway X Hot Pro 19* is pretty compact and very plain (no graphics, alignment aid, etc), 140cc I believe.  Compared to newer options, I think the TS2 18* looks similar.

    Callaway Epic Sub Zero 5 wood at 151 cc is one of the smallest 5 woods out there.
    https://in.callawaygolf.com/golf-clubs/fairway-woods/fwoods-great-big-bertha-epic-sz-2017.html

    Honma also has their compact fairway woods in the TW 737 series, they brand them as Fc for compact and the 5 wood is I believe at 150 cc.

    Lastly, Tour Edge makes 5 woods in their EXS and EX 10 models around 158 cc.  I am sure there are others but those are what I know.

    I'm not sure on the newer Cobras but I have the F6 Baffler 4-5 set to 17.5. It's a shorter shaft which I love and it's just a nice small head. It's hands down my favorite club in my bag. I think you can still get them new on RBG for like $70 too.

    I have the new Cobra F9 Tour 4/5 wood and it’s a pretty compact head at 145cc. I absolutely love it.

    Few older choices: For a Titanium option, consider the MP Titanium or Taylormade 300 tour.  For a steel option, Cobra F6 baffler,  original Cleveland launcher, Taylormade V steel  or Titleist 906f2.

    some of the 18-19* hybrids now look like mini fairway woods
    I have an old Adams tour issue FW/Hybrid at 20* and plays like a compact looking 6 wood for me

    Another vote for the f6 Baffler and more recent cobra clubs. The Baffler is a small head and my favorite club is the bag. Would think the F8+ would be similar.

    Cobra F6 Baffler is 147cc. New F9 is 149 cc. Both look compact. Honma TW 737c is also very compact. All nice choices. Also, look at Cally X2 Hot Pro heads. All of these are compact but forgiving. There are even smaller ones like TM M1, but it is not as forgiving.

    Look up the Callaway S2H2 5 or 3 wood. I have both and neither is much bigger than the ball you are trying to hit.

    906 f2 are very good fairways that are compact and can still hang with most of todays offerings.

    Probably without any debate, the Tour Only Issue TaylorMade Burner TP HFS 5W 17.5* is the smallest quality 5 wood. They were never sold retail. Strictly tour issue only. The HFS 3 wood is smaller than most smaller 5 woods and the HFS 5 wood is smaller than most smaller 7 woods. They are things of beauty and can power through most any rough. I have one of each and would never sell them. You can still find them occasionally on auction sites. That all being said, the F9 Tour Fairways seem to be some of the smallest quality 5 wood heads currently being offered.

    I have the 22* and consider it a hybrid. I think the originals came with the Burner Plus (90s) fairways (these ones had actual rails like the current Cobras). I would love to see TaylorMade make another version of this club with a hotter face. It is quite good from the rough.
