I wouldn't count out something a little older than last years models. Obviously, rogue and f8 are great performers as well as m4. But you could also get something for cheap if you dig a little deeper. I was a big fan of 915 fairways and I just picked up an 816 alpha for $50.

yeah mostly just considering last years models because I can still get them brand new but at like half the price or 1/3 of what they cost when they were released

Titleist 917 had many shaft options available without an upcharge.

 

16.5 * could also be a consideration in addition to the 15*.

Check the Callaway pre-owned site. They sell "like new" clubs at a steep discount. Often times you can't even tell these clubs have been hit.

 

I think they are still having 25% off fairway woods right now.

Really digging your bag setup! do you have a link to your WITB?

 

Agreed G400 launches high and dead straight

 

Been meaning to make one. Will get on it though.

 

Next up is a new driving iron shaft. Tensei White 90tx or 100tx

Standard, non-SZ, Rogue is silly long and quite forgiving. The ball speeds even on mishits are pretty amazing.

I can confirm this. I have a 13.5 degree rogue and a 15 degree rogue sub zero (got both fairly cheap), both clubs w/ AD TP 8x shafts at 42.25”. The regular rogue 13.5 ball speeds are higher when comparing center strikes, and regular rogue is VERY forgiving. Sub zero launches higher and is very workable either way. If you decide on regular rogue just take a look at the lie angles, anything higher than the 13.5 degree and lie angles get very upright quickly. Believe 13.5 is 55 or 56 degree lie, same as all sub zeros.

I've been having trouble getting it up lately. I should try the g400.

 

Viagra's good for that. So I've heard.

 

Sorry, couldn't resist.

The G400 is EASY.... but I don't find it to be the longest 3w out there, so depends on what you're looking for. I just put my 915f back in the bag. Forgiving and long... The Srixon F85 does seem to have a pretty hot face but at $250 right now, I think you can find something as good for a lot less.

I almost bought another 915f head recently. So good! Easy to hit. Was between that and 816 alpha, which I just purchased.

The Sub Zero 15* checks most boxes for me: looks great, SOLID feel, muted/solid sound, and it is a hammer off a tee. Off the fairway? I have issues. But that’s on me, not the club.

Not sure if the Callaway xr16 fits within the 3 year window, but it's impressive. Kicked my g30 out of the bag, long and straight. Picked one up new in wrapper a few weeks ago.
