Will be 80 in June. Been playing since 1962 (59 years). Handicap is currently 18 but am working to get it back to 15-16. My 3-wood is an oldie but goodie, KZG 15 degree Maraging Power with a Grafalloy

Unpopular opinion alert, 2.1 factor and I do not carry a 3 wood. My 3 wood shaft was way too spiny and the head was old so I sold it to buy a new one and just have not. Play driver then 19 degree hybr

11 hdcp, still rocking the og RBZ 3 wood.

About a 1. Playing a Sim ti with an old Diamana d plus. I may switch the shaft out soon though. Love the head too much to think about anything else.

Yeah OG sim ti. My 3 wood is a tour issue head in the standard setting which is 14.6 actual loft.

Every now and then I'll miss slightly left with my 17m2. Trying the sim2 ti so I can set the loft down a notch and help keep the face open to path a bit more. The 17m2 has been an absolute dream other than the occasional left shot...more a pull than anything else.

I can usually tell with a few balls of a 3 wood will work for me and I’ve been able to work it both ways and it’s long. I almost bailed on it since I was trying shaft but I had the tensei raw blue 85tx in my 5 wood so I got one for the 3 wood and I couldn’t ask for more

I'm the same. I play a 757 speeder evo2. I put an adapter on the backup shaft so I could compare the adapter 3woods from both sim lines. I didn't care for the OG sim ti. But the sim2 showed exact same launch monitor numbers as my 17m2 with basically the same flight at the lower loft. Plus, the sim2 has a CoG further back. It showed better control than OG sim ti.  

 

Recently put a 21* hybrid delofted a degree which got me thinking down this line.

8.x currently.  Cobra King LTD 3w.  Currently using 8m3, but thinking of assembling an adapter with RIP Alpha 80 for it.  Ironically, the RIP has the RBZ paint scheme.

Did you try the sim ti and sim.max and preferred the sim ti?


I’ve tried everything. I actually have a SIM Max 5 wood in the bag. I prefer the Ti version in the 3, and it’s really easy to launch from the fairway. 
 

I had the G425 LST 3 wood earlier this year but the SIM2 Ti was just so much better all around once for my swing I compared them.
