Found some threads from earlier in year but wondering what your thoughts are heading into last few months of the year.

    M5 or Epic Flash (non-SZ)... complete toss-up for me as to which is better. Epic Flash is slightly better from the tee and M5 is slightly better from the turf, but they're both versatile top-performers. I have a TS3 waiting in the wings, but I doubt it ever gets a chance to win the starting spot.

    Epic flash SZ...the thing is ridiculous. It’s like cheating it’s so easy to hit
    For the record I haven’t even entertained using a Callaway club in 15 years for personal reasons but this thing is too good to pass on.

    For me Cobra has been putting out incredible fairways for a few years now.

    The LTD was awesome. The F9 tour is every bit as good, just a bit more versatile. Maybe not quite as long, but the rails work. It’s just about as long as well.

    +1 on the M6. It is long, forgiving, and is the one of the best 3 woods I’ve ever gamed

    I think the TM and Epic are longer but the Titleist ones seem to be the most played from what I see around. Never cared for Titleist woods in the past but the TS3 fairway has been really good for me.

    Think the g410 is up there, may not be the longest but accurate and easy to hit off a tee or fairway

    Honestly, all of them are great. Find one you like the look of and to me the finding the correct shaft is more important.

    Forgiving and long. It’s not the longest but that’s not what fairway woods are for.
    Easy to hit off the deck and great off the tee box

    Purchased a Rogue 15* with Evenflow Blue 65 6.0 and found the launch to be too high. Found a brand new 917F2 from Ksouth9 for $80 and love it. Plus it matches my driver. Really wanted to like the Rogue, spun to much for me.

    For me, it's the TS2 with a slight edge over the M5. Both are stupid long but the TS2 has the edge on forgiveness, price, and height.
