I'm looking to upgrade my fairway woods this year so I can have matching fairway woods (and matching shafts), I was really hooking my fairway woods at the end of this past season, so I was looking to see if anyone has any suggestions for fairway woods (and shafts - I normally play Aldila Rogue Black Shafts) that would be more fade biased. Thanks

    I'm with you . Going G410 because of the flat setting. Played G 25 and G fairways and went left if your timing was slightly off . My 2017 M1 isn't nearly as bad.

    Pretty much any FW with an open face. However, it helps to aim the club instead of depending on the ground and face angle to do it for you.

    I would add that the M6 fairway is surprisingly good. it is not meant to be a anti hook club. But, it is very very straight.

    Although.. at least previous models have been very upright. I too like the TMs but certainly not anti-left for me.

    TS3 sits abit open (at least to my eye) in the neutral setting, add in the open setting on the adapter with a stiff tip shaft and you've got a fade machine.

    I have struggled with 3 woods for a few years. The G410 set flat has been amazing for me. It is firmly in the bag.

    Exotics cb3 tour. Sits a degree or 2 open, has a titanium face and is a rocket of the tee. It is also very easy to hit off the turf. Can be found cheap still in good condition.

    The M1 or M3 with an extra sliding weight for added fade bias might be an option.

    My TS2 in the B1 flat setting is the most anti-left i've ever found. Very easy to launch and so forgiving. Can't recommend enough!

    Going with minimum loft on an adjustable FW will open face slightly. And, trimming the shaft slightly or choking down on shaft will flatten the lie.

    I will agree with the 917 F2, That was pretty much anti left for me in the standard setting, I never had to adjust it. I am currently using a G400 lofted down with an Aldila Rogue silver 70 and so far it has been point and shoot without any left trouble at all... if you can deal with the way it sounds, it's a great 3w.

    You can pick up a Ping Anser 3 wood for <$100 on the bay. Great value club that hits low spin rockets. I have the hooks with anything Tmade but had great luck with this.

    I owned a Taylormade M2 Tour and, while it wasn't completely unhookable it was **** close. I don't hit a lot of hooks so it's less of a priority to me. I really liked the M2 Tour, but got rid of it because it just went too far!(No, I'm not like most people here. I don't hit my 3 wood 320. But I'm referring to the distance compared to my driver and my 2 hybrid. The gap was too wide between the hybrid and the 3 wood and too close between the driver and the 3 wood.) The last thing i needed was a 3 wood that was nearly as long as my driver. But if ones priority is to use a 3 wood off the tee a lot and you want the distance without the fairway wood draw bias that's the one I'd look at. And I'd imagine they can get gotten cheap.
