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.

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.

Was the EX10 Beta your last 3 wood?

 

Tour Edge, Maybe CBX 16.5, or try the new EXS in a 15?

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....

I found Rogue SZ to be what you're looking for, although couldn't stand the chevron. Going to experiment with the G400 stretch.

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......

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

Driver: TaylorMade SIM MAX (10.5 degrees - set to 9.75 and 1.5 degrees open)

3-wood: TaylorMade SIM (15 degrees)

Shaft: Aldila Rogue 130 Black 70 TX (at 43" and tipped 1")

UDI: *** Under Construction ***

Irons: TaylorMade P-7MC 4-PW (1 degree upright)

Shaft: Nippon Pro Modus3 Tour 120 X

Wedges: Cleveland RTX Zipcore Tour Rack (Raw) 52.10, 56.12 & 60.12
