    My TEE CBX 15* is as long or longer than my Titleist 910 D2 driver right now. I have the 13.5* CBX glued up and ready to rock to see if it will actually outdrive my driver by a decent margin. These 3 woods really are that good.

    many of the TEE clubs should be at the top of the list. Original bomber FW

    Yup. This.

    My ex9 tour is a beast off the tee.
    Moved to a m5 just this year but I still have the ex9 tour.

    I’m going to have fun with this one.

    Shaft might be 20 grams too light. For me it would be.

    I might be but being that I’m only going to use it off the tee it might work.

    Callaway 816 DBD. simple head shape, low spin. longest I have used. And you can turn down the loft.

    Did you mean the Alpha 816 Fairway (14°)? The 816 DBD was a driver only.

    Yup. 2014 Rapture 13°. I have one rotting away in the rafters of my garage I bought new a year ago. Never got around to changing out the Ping X stiff shaft. But its a bomb.

    Kudos to you for realizing the strokes the driver was costing you. Last year I decided to take the driver out of my bag and have been using a 3-wood I got fitted for at club champion. It's an M4 and my favorite club in my bag!

    Agree 100%. Been playing with my 3 wood a lot more this year while leaving the driver sidelined. Saving major strokes.

    Original One Mini Driver; long, low and easy to hit (tee only).

    I had a couple Deeps. Long, unforgiving and draw biased. Fugetaboutit_ from the turf.

    If your SS is high enough, a DI is also a good optional tee club.

    i would definitely agree with a mini driver. I use mine with tee and off the deck. Its the most versatile club in my bag

    I'm using the ST190 for this. Very good size profile for tee shots and still useable off the deck, unlike most mini-drivers.

    Last night in league play, I used an older re shafted Burner Titanium 3 wood as my tee club. I gave up maybe 20ish yards but it flew much straighter and kept me out of danger. It has a pretty deep face so it works well as a driving club. I got best strikes when the ball was teed super low as well.
