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

What? Do you even know where you are? Do you not know what goes on around here? Don't let mgmt hear you talking like that. 

11 hdcp, still rocking the og RBZ 3 wood.

Handicap is 1.5 currently and have been playing a 15 degree Callaway Epic Flash sub zero w/ a Graphite Design tour AD TP 7x. Absolutely love this club, and have never said that about a 3 wood before.

8.0

 

Nothing between my driver and 3-iron. I can't hit a fairway wood or hybrid to save my life.

Low single figure... currently play a Cobra Fly Z with UST Mamiya Elements Fire 7F5 Shat at 43 Inches. Shaft is perfect for my swing and I get it out with a nice mid trajectory around 250-265 (ground, tee)... Tried some new stuff but nothing gives me a meaningful change from this one.

I’m a 6 and playing a sim ti  15 degree turned down to 14.25 with an evenflow blue shaft.  I’m not very fast and would never have thought I could launch a 3 wood with this little loft, and was coming from a TS2 in 16.5 degrees of loft.  This thing is really easy to launch and works really well for me.  I’m a cutter and my miss is right, so the square face on mine is another benefit.

9. I don’t have a 3 wood. 

 

I have a 16 degree U510 utility with Ventus Blue HB 9X as the only club between my driver and 3 iron.

Did you test the sim max and ti? Or just go straight to the ti? Is there anything you don't like about the ti?

yes -- the footprint of the max was a bit much for me -- and the ti was a cannon. no brainer for me. the only thing i don't like about the Ti; wish it felt like it does but sounded like the sim2 ti.

That footprint is my gripe with the "forgiving" fairways from tm since sim. 17m2 is the same volume as the sim2 ti. Shape and face depth are different but same volume. 

 

Was there a noticeable difference in forgiveness between the sim max and ti?

I prefer open faced three woods (THe Tour Duffy from TM 300 was in my bag) and when you take a 3 wood and open the face and deliver it square you have less loft.  I hit the ball on the lowish spectrum, plus I do not need a three wood to go that far.

 

So I am in a (Shudders even saying it) Titleist TS2 16.5 4 wood turned all the way down and flat.   I could not hit the M5 I had very well off the deck (see lowish ball flight).  So having the TS2 that I can use a tee on the tee box, and also put it on the turf on the tee box to hit a stinger, or hit it off the deck to get very close to the green on really long par 5's.

Thanks. I'm the same. Don't miss off center much with the 3wood.  I just remember the 16m1 I had and the 17m2 was noticeably more forgiving. Hoping the sim2 ti is closer to the 17m2 in forgiveness. 

fwiw i thought the sim2 was less forgiving than the original sim; and since i use it off the tee almost exclusively - having that little bit larger head was beneficial to me. 

I can still get it off the deck if i had to. my fav taylormade 3w of all time was the m2 tour head with the weight up front. it was small but man was that thing a ballspeed beast.

7.2 playing an original M2 3hl.  It’s not going anywhere unless the head cracks.

Good luck, I had my 17 M2 5w crack on me about a month ago.

I loved that 3w, one that I wish I wouldn't have sold.  It really was a rocket.

 

 

 

About a 13 index here, I am gaming a Callaway Mavrik Subzero 4w/ Rogue white (s).  I am really liking this club as it doesn't look closed at address and only goes left when I want it to go left.  I've only been using it for a month, replaced both my 3w and 5w with it, but I don't see it coming out of my bag anytime soon.
