Tour AD DI or IZ in 3 wood?


Recommended Posts

To those who may have both, I wanted to have your opinions. 
 

I play a IZ 6x in my driver and wanted to see about the 3 wood. Do you recommend me going IZ 7x or DI 7x in 3 wood? 
I currently have a AD DI 7x in my 3 wood but feel it is sometimes loose. Especially after hitting a IZ 6x in my driver, which feels so much more consistent. 
 

just worried about getting IZ in 3 wood because of all the posts saying it penetrates and isnt good for landing softly and approach shots. I need the 3 wood for off the tee but also for reaching par 5s in two...

If more launch is needed, loft is something that can also be looked at. Playing an IZ 7x at 16.5 is an option if 15 launches too low.

Bump.

 

In a similar boat here. Play IZ in driver and DI in fairway. I love the IZ, it’s ridiculously good for me in driver and am wondering whether the DI has a touch too much kick in the fairway. 
 

My understanding is IZ in the fairway would give me slightly higher launch, all being equal, and a just a more linear feel/less kick than the DI.

Where you get that info? If true I might have to get a IZ for my 3w.


From Graphite Design. It’s also what I’ve found in driver, that IZ launches higher than DI.

Loft is 100% the biggest factor versus shaft for launch. I’m also trying to manage spin though, to not exceed 3000rpm.

I would concur having used the DI for a while and then moving to the IZ, the IZ definitely plays higher.

I have IZ 7x in both driver and 3w and in my fitting agreed with the above comments that it launches a little higher than the DI, with a bit less kick/more linear feel.

Gamed the DI for many years, tested the IZ more than once.  IZ wins hands down.  I found the DI to be loose for me as well granted I did hit the longest drives with it.  It was feast or famine.  IZ for me, is just consistent and also feels smoother than the DI.  It's just reliable and I know what to expect every single time.  If I wasn't such a high launch/spin player, I would game the IZ in a heart beat.

I'm playing the IZ5s in my driver and IZ7s in my Rogue 4 wood 17* which helps get the ball up in the air from the fairway.  Def agree with above posts about the loft, had a 15* went to the 17* Play the DI's in my hybrids which are great.  IZ hybrid shaft is lower launch from what I have read.

Anybody know anything about how it plays for hybrids? 
 

Whats the difference between the IZ vs. the DI in hybrids? 
Some have said that for hybrids, the IZ shaft launchs lower than the DI which seems to be the opposite for Drivers and Fairway woods. 
 

seems like everyone plays the DI in hybrids…even those who play the IZ in their drivers and 3 woods…

I've seen a lot of people play the DI in hybrids as well. It just seems to work for a lot of people. 

To get back to your original question, I would possibly try out an IZ in the fairway wood or you could tip you DI a touch to feel a little firmer in the tip section. I've known people to do that with that shaft in their driver and they love the feel. I actually might let go of my IZ in favor of a DI in the driver.
