5 wood search......

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!

Mavrik has an adjustable hosel? The callaway site shows a fixed hosel.

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.

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.
