I hate 3 woods... I have tried many, but "fore left!" is the most likely outcome when it comes out for a swing. Play off 7.6. 

 

I think the next one is going to be a TSi 2 - 16.5 degrees set open and flat. Gonna play it shorter (42") with a heavier 85 gram shaft. Distance has never been an issue, so I am hoping that going up to the 4W with the shorter and heavier shaft combo will be my golden ticket to some consistency in that slot.

14.8 and I prefer a 4 wood to 3.  Currently gaming the Mavrik 16.5 4 wood.  Previously used some of the TM HL 3 woods which are basically 4 woods.

 

I get better launch with the extra loft.

Not actively handicapping myself right now, but traditionally play to a mid-high single digit cap. 

 

Still playing my trusty Callaway Diablo Edge Tour 15* with an Accra Dymatch M5 75.

 

I've also got the "Stenson-lite" - Callaway Diablo Octane Tour 13* with an Aldila NV 75 that I use on certain courses.

Where did you get your SIM2 Max bent flat?

I'm a bad golfer and tinker who would be lucky to double bogey any hole and don't have a handicap, but I'm using an Epic Speed with a 1.5 inch tipped Graphite Design M9003 in 7X.  Even with a relatively gentle swing, the ball rockets into the air and is probably the best club I've tinkered this year.  I'm sure it would be useless to try to hold a green with, but it would be a great driver alternative on those days the driver doesn't agree with me (which is most of the time).
