***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION

Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

best and longest 5wood ?

    ive got the epicflash subzero 3w now and I just find it hatefull. I love the look of it at address but I find it just goes nowhere.. ive tried various shafts in it..it dosnt beat my old g10 17* 4wood to be fair.. for me I think the jailbreak just feels dead.. even my hybrid that I smash just feels dead often surprising me by how far it went

    Callaway 5deep. Loft of a strong 5w, deeper face for lower launch, less spin and more distance.

    Edit, nevermind, lefty.

    Cobra LTD. Still a bomb!!! You could go for the 3-4 and set at 16º or just get the 4-5.

    I have really been impressed with my G410 thus far, before I had a G25 4w (but only used it off the tee) and also tried a Cobra F7. The F7 I will say was one of the longest probably edging the G410 slightly. But the G410 for me fits my eye/swing better. I also use the same shaft as in my driver with it, an OG Proforce v2 FYI.

    Dump your 3 wood, dump your hybrid and forget the 5 wood idea.......get a Ping G400 #2 17* as it's great from the tee and easy off the deck. Simples.

    Not sure about which is the best or longest given that each OEM for the last number of years has been producing some fantastic fairway woods. You'd be hard pressed to find some of today's offerings being able to go toe to toe with an Adams Super LS or LS VST, Cally XHP or XHP2 or various TEE models to name a few. Concensus will be to jump up to 16-17 of loft (4wd) as it is easier to elevate while still producing good enough spin numbers to get the distance. This has been a golden age so to speak for fairway woods for a number of years now.

    Longest is going to be Callaway Rogue Sub Zero or Epic Flash Sub Zero. Jailbreak technology is no joke and those are the two fairway woods that have it. If I had to enter a long drive competition with a fairway wood I would go with one of those.

    That sad you also asked what the best was. For me that's the Cobra F9 Speedback Tour. Main reason is the lie angle. I'm on the taller end and the lie angle on the Callaway clubs are very flat(55* 3 wood and 55.5* 5 wood). I play my Cobra in a shaft postion that puts it at 60.7* on the lie angle. Besides the lie angle the look, feel and performance is awesome and the rails really help with shots off the deck. The Cobra is not as long as the Callaways but it's pretty close, suits my swing much better and because it's suits my swing better is much more accurate for me.

    Trouble off the DECK? Say no more, fam.

    As a fellow southpaw, this is the greatest club made. Tight lies 14* put a low launch, low spin shaft in, and you'll be shmurddering the ball off the deck.

    My old 915f is LONGGG, a lot will have to do with the shaft.

    My 915F 5 wood is also very long, almost surprisingly long sometimes. So much so that its a little too close to my 3 wood in distance sometimes.

    Best is a subjective opinion, however distance wise having worked with V-Steels, Nikes, and a couple Pings, I know my aeroburner has definitively been the longest 5 wood I've tested/played.

    ive got the Apex19 18* hybrid that I can hit pretty far off the tee and low.. so its my go to for short par 4s or anything into a wind.. Id like a fairway I can hit much higher though.. specifically for hitting into greens.. the 18* hybrid just runs and bounces too much for par5 approaches

    Shame on you! This is WRX you should be hitting a forged 2i with an X100 shaft hard stepped twice.

    Appreciated this comment.
    I have an m3 5w that I just took out of the bag because it went just about as far as my 3 wood.

    This question seems like a fun afternoon at golf galaxy to really get the answer to.

    Flash 5w. It doesn't have the same design DNA as the sub zero 3w you have. Open it down to 17 and bombs away.

    Other options - and it's what I did - is get a tour issue "4w" 2016 M1 head off eBay. For some reason there's like five or six 16 to 17.5* heads floating around at all times and mine is an absolute bullet machine. If you don't mind building your own club or having a shop build something for you, this is the route I suggest you go.
