After looking at my fairway usage the past several months I've realized that I really only use it off the tee. For layups on par 5s, I'm more comfortable hitting a 2I (or less to get to a perfect yardage) so I was looking at maybe picking up the F85 in 13.5" to use as a tee only club (and occasionally fairway).

Anyone still using the F85 and specifically the 13.5*? How's the launch compared to other strong 3s?

    I have one with the HZDRUS black 70 6.5 in mine and it is a mid launching combo. fairly easy to hit off the turf.

    It hits fine.

    I went to a 13.5* from 15* 3 wood because I was hitting my 2 iron well and needed more separation.

    I ended up choosing the Epic SZ at the time to match my driver.

    Just switched to one with a hzrdus yellow hc 6.5 and it’s less spin than any fairway wood except the cobra Ltd. had the g410 lst and somehow spun it like crazy so this put me back into hitting good 3 woods offf the T again

    I had one with Hazardous Yellow 6.0 but struggled with it. Wrong loft for me.

    In the right hands I am sure it would be very good. Sure set up nice, just not enough ss to lift it.
