5 wood search......


Recommended Posts

Hi

Bum, cracked the face of My Cobra F6 Baffler..

Looking for a New 5 wood,.

Got a Callaway epic flash sub zero 3 wood, so could go with a matching 5 wood, then have the option of adjusting loft.

Any one compared the flash/flash sz with other Callaway 5 woods, rogue or maverik and why does the maverik not have the adjustment neck?

Or just find a F6 Baffler again. Or maybe some other Cobra like the Ltd, Any one gaming a Ltd 5 wood?

Other subjects Taylormade m5/m6

Going to a big demo day on friday, there I can try All brands, exept taylormade

 

Love the Hunt for a New golf (buddy) stick???️‍♂️?️‍♂️

Cobra F8 and 9s are still out there and the new SZ are nice too. I prefer Ping, love the look and feel and easy to get in the air!!

A battle in the bag is more fun when there's time to practice and play, lol. Weather in North Texas has been hit or miss over the past few weekends, so I'm not really starting that battle until later

G400 with a diamana blue or tensei and thank me later

Try Srixon Z F85 18 degree. Great reviews. It's non-adjustable.

Mavrik is the replacement for Rogue: no adjustment saves 10g of weight higher, can put that 10g lower. Just a trade off in club design.

 

EF is still a current product, Mavrik just have more options and shapes (and different sound).

 

You really have lots of options out there: another thread swears by the Rogue SZ 5 :)

Find another baffler on ebay. Otherwise if you want to spend some $$, F9 is the natural choice.

I had the F8 tour 4-5, and much prefer the baffler. I would just get another F6 baffler if it fills the gap well.

I want to try the epic flash sz, Rogue SZ and the New maverik woods..

Today I tried a buddysTaylormade M6 with a Speeder 661 TX, really nice flight and stable, liked it alot, just not a fan of the silver paint on the top, seems like it presents a lot of loft on the face..

Also had a cuple of swing with the Cobra F9 5/6 wood, had a ladies shaft in it, but the feel of the face was Nice and liked the look from adresse, compared it to My Baffler, just like that smaller head and know it will pick the ball out of pretty much Any Lie, except really deep rough..

The Hunt is on, more products to try?

Its fantastic, havet been thinking of a New driver for a couple of days??

I agree with those mentioning the Baffler and the other various Cobra offerings. F8+ and F9 Tour are really good clubs. I just got the F9 Tour 3 wood and it's really easy to elevate with the right shaft. I still have my Baffler that I'm going to mess around with as my 5 wood. I was using it as my 4 wood for last season, and really liked it, but I found a good deal on a like new F9 Tour 3 wood that I couldn't pass up.

The issue I'm going to have with the Baffler as my 5 wood is that I've had my Adams 19* XTD Super Hybrid that it's going to have to beat out. I've had that club for so long now, and I'm going to have a hard time not keeping that one in the bag. It's not a knock on the Baffler, it's just how much I trust the XTD.

I just was given a PING G410 5W to try and I think it’s the easiest FW to elevate and just wants to go straight. I think j the Tour 75 shaft that PING offers is a great shaft as well. Worth a look if you’re in the market.

I thought the same about the looks too and the sound. Coming from trying a TS2 fairway wood that I tried in the 5W spot. But the PING flat out performs no matter how fugly it looks or sounds.

MGS has a fairway comparison and I was very surprised with the speeds across various clubs. I am a Ping/Titleist guy and the speed of Titleist was good. However, I was shocked with the speed of the G410 they reported. As someone that played the G400 the past two seasons I was planning to get a G410 but MGS has me reconsidering a TS3 5w if I cannot score a good deal on a G410

A battle in the bag is more fun when there's time to practice and play, lol. Weather in North Texas has been hit or miss over the past few weekends, so I'm not really starting that battle until later this spring when the sun stays out longer in the evenings to go hit balls.

I'm a big fan of the rails as well. They've been very helpful hitting out of the rough. I added hot melt to mine and play it just a touch over 41" now for my 5 wood. I really like the ball flight I've seen with it on the range with it set to 18.5 & 19*. I just need more time to get comfortable with it.

I have an M3 3HL that turned down to 19*. I love it off the tee, but off the deck leaves alot to be desired. I tried the Cobra fairways over the years, but they tended to produce super strong snap hooks. I still bust out a TM V Steel. Nother cuts through the turf like that one. I might try the new SIM to get that sole back. Goodluck with the search.
