I want to dabble in a 5 wood. I've never gamed one. Please suggest an inexpensive one to start with. something less than $120. Would prefer something that can adjust the lofts +/- 1 degree.

I'm looking at this as something to possibly use off the tee from time to time but mostly to give it a go for 2 on a par 5.

    Used Titleist 910f? The Bay and the BST are your friends here.

    Recommended: Buy 5 used 5 woods for $30 each all at the same time. Figure out that you don’t like any of them. Sell them all. Saves time and money vs buying $100 clubs repetitively for the next 2 years. Trust me.

    Depends on what head shape you prefer. I have carried a Cobra Bio Cell+ 5-7 wood for a few years. Very compact head but plays almost like a hybrid and is outstanding on narrow par 4's from the tee box. The stock Matrix Ozik shaft is also really good. The F6 Baffler is basically the same club for a little more money and has the rail system alot of folks like.

    If you prefer a wider/thinner head the Callaway XR and X2 Hot are both good options as well.

    I was in the same boat I really want to try a 5 wood I went to global golf and picked up a tour edge for around $30 best club I have hit ended up replacing my 3 wood and 4 hybrid with exotics from global golf. I went with the xcg6 series

    I've posted about it before in 5 wood threads but I got a Tour Issue small head Aeroburner 5 wood and it's my favorite club in the bag. Great off the tee or deck. It feels wonderful and solid as well. Oddly enough because I loved it so much I bought a Tour Issue Aeroburner yardbirds 3 wood and Absolutely HATED it. After 2 range sessions it was sold.

    I picked up an alpha 816 head from the bst here in the fall because I struggle with hybrids. Absolutely love it plus I feel it is still very relevant with production compared to new equipment. Smaller profile head, but easier to hit than one would think. Paid $60 for the head.

    RBZ Stage 2. Not the prettiest to look at but as solid as any wood out there new or old. Can be had for cheap!

    Cobra f6 with baffler. It kicked my 3w out of the bag. Fairway finder off the tee and confidence off the deck into par 5s.

    Ping i25 is a great idea (I'm in the same boat, looking for a good 5 wood). Think I'll get one and buy a Kiyoshi HB to out in there.

    Callaway, Ping , and Cobra.

    The older Cobra Bio Cell & Amp Cell are overlooked, and cheap.
