Largest low spin 3 wood head

Is this a contradiction? Possibly, but i've done some googling and can't find much of it.

 

Currently game the TS2 and love the feel, but I'm starting to lose confidence off the tee and think a larger head would help. I play the PX Smoke 6.5 in 3 wood for reference.


Thanks all!

The SIM ti looks to be pretty big at address and is def a low spin head.  The V2 is a bit smaller and even lower spin.

Not trying to be snarky, I promise, but have you tried just choking down a touch on a driver and making a 75% swing? Driver heads these days are seemingly all low-spin and forgiving, just to various degrees. I’ve always found a bunt driver to be a more reliable fairway finder than a 3 wood. Even as a higher-speed/spin player I never find myself wishing I had less spin on a fairway wood as then they’d be less versatile out of the fairway/rough or off the tee when I have a narrow distance target.

If you can afford the spot in the bag, you can always just look for a strong 3wd  (13*ish) with a good shaft and off ya go.  The Sim rocket 14* for modern stuff would fit the bill for sure.  But it isn't going to change anything regarding your swing or mental make up off the tee.

haha, not snarky at all!

 

I really don't like hitting bunt drivers/i haven't practiced them enough. i have no problem hitting a choked down wind cheater, but that doesn't fill spot i'm looking for.

the SiM Ti 3w is pretty low spin and the head is what i would consider larger than most.

I went looking for this and came up with what I have in my sig..Cobra Fly Z 3/4 wood that you can set between 13-16 deg. 181cc head for tee confidence but low enough profile to hit comfortably off the deck. Definitely a larger footprint 3 wood vs a mini driver.

 

It's not easy finding much decent 2nd hand at present but even so, you won't pay a fortune for one of these when they do become available in decent condition.

Another vote for OG SIM Ti.  It is only marginally smaller than the SIM MAX and low spin due to CG weight so close to the face.  It's a bomber.

This is what I do. Grip down on driver and take full swing at slower speed.
