TaylorMade M3 3 wood. 139cc.

Taylormade M2 tour.  Love that club!

TaylorMade 2016 M2 deep face is another good option if you can find one. Pretty sure Koepka is still gaming his. I think TM has also released some 'small' tour head options in their most recent fairwa

I still have my tour issue r7 ale 13 degree that I will periodically take out on the course for craps and giggles.  It's one of the best small 3 metals IMO and used to be my fairway finder. 

One of my all time favorites! Had a R7 TP HFS TI model that was so clutch for a long time. It finally caved.

modern wood heads are not responsible for low bullets, technique (along with a bit of loft and shaft profile) is what u want

 

that being said, f8+, f9 tour, speedback or zone tour. . .

 

OP u were spot on, cobra is the only small one worth bying and it will knock a couple hundred rpm off with that front weight placement

Had the F8+ , F9 tour and Big Tour(its healthy) and the f9 tour seemed to be the smallest , more shallow profile but still produced low launch / low spin for the bullet balls. While they were good , I wouldn't say they were the only ones worth buying. Lot of good fairways out there. Hardest thing in the bag for me to get just right.

Honestely I cannot find a fairway that goes high. I smothered the ball for so many years I deloft everything.  I hit a Sldr 5hl yesterday just high enough to cut shrubs. 

If I could I would love to give this issue away to you OP.  It sucks but I do play well in the wind at least.

Rough task when delofting for sure. But , anything that's a shallower profile , should help, no?

An old school Callaway S2H2 might fit the bill.  Duval & Couples used them back in the day.

10.5 deg Titleist 905R with stock UST Proforce V2 Shaft
1999 Ben Hogan Apex Blades (3-PW) with stock Apex 4 Steel Shafts
Taylormade V-Steel 5W & 3W with Grafalloy Prolaunch Red shafts
Taylormade ATV wedges in 54 and 58 degrees with stock steel shafts
Rife Island Series Aruba Blade Putter

 

"Loft for loft, length for length, and shaft for shaft, the ball will go the same distance when hit on the sweet spot regardless how old the iron."

Bingo. Astoundingly good.

I just meant they are the smallest that the big companies make. My main point is all fairway woods can be manipulated to produce low flights if the player is good enough, so the only one “worth” the OP purchasing is the only one that pleases his “smallest” requirement if necessary, plus they can still be found easily on amazon and such. Going with the lower spinning head will just make it a little easier, along with low spin ball and shaft.

Thanks for the idea bro. I will try something like a Ping? My buddy gave me his m3 woods to try out.  Will work on a flatter swing too.

Bridgestone J33 

I hit a J33 3 wood for at least 8 years. Literally played it until the face broke down and cracked on me. My favorite club in the bag for a very long time. The entire J33 line was solid though. Probably the best Bridgestone ever produced. 
 

3w’s are funny clubs anyway though. The tech hasn’t changed a lot, even as everything else has advanced. It’s also hard to get away from something reliable that you trust. I’m still playing an old X Hot Pro 13.5 to this day, although I have upgraded shafts twice.

So small headed bullet baller as many mentioned, cobra f8+. I played one for over a year but it has since been replaced with a ping g410.  I find it a more flexible tool in my bag.  I’ve since gone pretty much all ping in the bag as the woods were so good for me.
