I need a new 3 wood! Looking for max carry....


Recommended Posts

Long story short I need a new 3 wood. Something that I can hit off the deck w max carry. The course I play most has long par 5s and I need something to get me as far down the fairway as possible on my second shot. I am not a high ball hitter but I can spin it alot sometimes. I also tend to miss left so nothing that hooks. Looking for suggestions......

Since I don't know your swing much....and going just by ballspeeds... I've tested just about every new 3wood in the last 3-4 years... and for pure ball speeds......

 

Cobra LTD

Rogue SZ

M3

 

...produce the fastest ball speeds. The sleeve of the M3/LTD would allow you to tweak launch conditions.

 

edit: ballspeeds validated on my GC2/HMT.

2016 M2 Deep Face. If you want more carry you should probably look at the 16.5° head. They are stupidly long

Callaway Mavrik 10.5° w/ Aldila Rogue White 70 130MSI X
TaylorMade M2 DF 16.5° w/ Mitsu Diamana W 80X
TaylorMade Sim Max Rescue 19° w/ HZRDUS Red 105 6.5
Yonex Ezone CB-301 3-9 w/ Nippon Modus 125X
Cleveland RTX4 Raw 48°,53°,58° w/ DG S400 Tour Issue
TaylorMade Spider Tour Black 34"

I game a Callaway xr16. I'm not sure what its mechanically meant to do, and I've never hit it on a launch monitor, but on the course I hit high long bombs with it. I have no problem hitting it into greens because I can get it so high in the air.

Try the following:

 

Taylor Made M2 original version

Taylor Made Aero Burner (shaft needs to be spec'd as the stock was a whip or grab the TP version with the Matrix S shaft)

Callaway Rogue

Mizuno ST180

 

These clubs were in my bag several times but they worked out to be too long in my gapping scheme...so much so, when I was in-between drivers, I actually only bagged one of the above instead of a driver for several weeks of playing.

TM SIM MAX D 10.5/ Fujikura Speeder 661TR S/ GP TW White

I hit my Rogue SZ 15* off the deck longer than any 3w I have ever played, longer than my Epic SZ 13.5.

 

I will eventually get a 13.5 Rogue SZ to try, may eliminate the need for driver.

Well Fred, the proper 3w for you depends on several things: What is your CHS? Are you comfortable playing a FW off the deck at your home course? Where do you play most? Do you like your FWs on the heavy or light side? Do you prefer an open, square or closed look at address? What distance do you hit your driver and what loft is it?

 

Awaiting your answers....

Sounds very similar to me. I spin a ton and do not want to miss left. I was trying everything this year to replace my M2 2016. I just haven't been getting along as of late.

 

Got a few different options, g400 (stretch and 14.5), rogue, F7, and a few others. Bought a Tour Edge CBX on a whim trying to get something long from the tee. I got a 13.5 and I was blown away. No lefts, spin stays down, and I actually launch it easier than the M2 in a 16.5. It takes off of the face like a rocket and is almost as long as my driver. I liked it so much I bought another head for shaft testing. Really great shape too.

 

Never really got into the TEE stuff, just not really much around me to test. This one got my attention and it is really a solid club. I will be testing a few shafts then unloading the second head. I would say take a look at least. It was definitely longer than anything else for me. And know that it's really easy to launch, so don't let the 13.5* scare you

Taylormade M2 2016 or M4. Choose the shallow head, 15 degree. That will be the longest fairway off the deck you've ever hit.

 

Reg M4 or tour M4 head? I’ve been looking at the M4 tour 15* and pairing it with the evenflow black 75 6.5
