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

Just looked at the SIM (both models) and really disliked the shape but didn’t get a chance to hit. They are very round with a lot of face showing. Looks like a ball on the end of a stick. On the other hand, I absolutely loved the look, shape and feel of the standard Mavrik. Not generally a Callaway guy but these are definitely on my list for a fuller workout.

I spent time hitting SIM, Maverick SZ and G410 on trackman.

 

In short:

SIM was the longest but did not like the look. Also struggled with the sole of the club and my swing not getting along. Sprayed it a fair amount (certainly my fault).SZ was best feel and look for me. More accurate with my swing than SIM but not as long.G410 looks a little odd (shape) at address. Very accurate but spun a lot.

For me, none were compelling enough to replace my M5. There was longer and more forgiving. But M5 was the better total package, for me and my swing.

I hear you on 5 wood and accuracy. That is what I really enjoy about the M5... length and consistency.

 

However, if accuracy is your number one component, you may really want to give the G410 a spin... no pun intended haha!

If you have the Epic Flash SZ 3w, you know how good that fairway is. I would leave well enough alone and get the matching 5w. I use the 5 as my only fairway, since it's kind of a weak 4/strong 5.

I think I’m going to be in the same boat as you GooseHook. Going to either have a 5w as the only fair or a Ping 7w turned down to 19*. I think that 18-19 fairway is the way to go.

5w:  Titleist TS2 (Ventus Blue)

Here's an outside the box thought. If there are Cally Super Hybrids at the demo day, give one of those a try. I was fitted for one at a demo day and ended up ordering the 19 degree. Those really are an interesting alternative to fairway woods.

Actually I ordered a 20 degree that the Cally rep suggested setting at 19 degrees.

I just unloaded a 19* G400 hybrid that I was hitting 245 on average on the Golfzon last week. That is too far for my hybrid, as it creates to big a gap from my 4iron. So I want to pull back and get a 4hybrid and a 5w

Okay that makes sense, I misunderstood and thought you meant you could adjust loft

The rogue 5 wood is awesome. Great look at address and easy to hit. Same with ts2 5 wood. Easy to launch and gets great ball speed.

I mentioned the F9 Tour, but found myself needing another 5w for the backup bag after reorganization, found a basically new rogue SZ for dirt cheap.
