Been playing a TSi3 3 wood for a season now, and can't say enough good things about it.  I don't hit it off deck much (I have a TSi2 5 wood for that) but it is a monster off the tee.  I got fit originally for the tensei blue shaft, and it was good combo.  Later on got fit for Ventus red, and this thing is beast.  Properly fit I think it will serve you well.  Sound and feel are awesome, I get a great flat flight with some roll.  The velocore shaft is night and day from stock tensei, but it was a good club with either.

It has a really solid feel and nice sound. Excellent off the tee. I found it a little demanding from the deck where if I didn't really pure it, I was losing a lot on the shot.  Where I liked the TSi3 in the driver, I preferred the TSi2 in the 3w for easier playability.  The TSi drivers are as good as any drivers on the market but I find the fairways to not quite live up to the drivers.  If your looking for an alternate club off the tee, the TSi3 is a good one to check out but if you want something more versatile I think TSi2, SIM, SIM Max, G425 Max and the Callaway's would be other options to look at.

I play the TSi3 Driver and Fairways (3 and 5). Love them but would agree with some comments above that its not the easiest to hit off the deck.

With that said, I love the ball speed I get from it. Feel and sound is great and I like the adjustability with the weight and moving it from heel to toe.

Dont think you can go wrong with either the TSi2 or 3. Both great.

I’m not that long but plenty accurate with my driver and so I barely use 3W off the tee. The overwhelming majority of shots I hit with my 3W are second shots on par 5s trying to advance it as far as possible to give me the shortest yardage for my third. In this role, the TSi3 is a significant improvement over the 913 FD it replaced. I probably average 15 yards more carry and 15 yards more roll out. It is long enough to where I could hit it off the tee without losing much distance to my driver, but I feel the bigger face of the driver is more forgiving of mishits. If I needed a 3W that I could hit high and hold a green (as in, if I had the distance to reach those par 5s in two), I’m not sure it would be the right club, but I don’t so it’s not an issue. For this same reason I did not upgrade and kept my old 913 5W to give me a high soft shot with some distance if needed, although it’s now 30-40 yards short of my 3W.

I like mine but I think I prefer the look of the 917. I've been tinkering with the setup to try and find something comfortable, think I may need a heavier shaft. It's definitely long, I actually find it pretty easy to elevate off the deck, I'm a high launch/speed player though though.

Monster off the tee but pretty demanding off the deck like others have said. I eventually went to the TSi2, automatic.

If you are going to hit it off the deck often, the TSi2 will give you a much better margin of error. If it’s primarily a tee shot club, the TSi3 is great. I went with the TSi2 because it was the best combination of both for me. It is still really good off the tee but it’s one of the best 3 woods from the deck for me since the OG 2007 Burner TP.

I play a tsi3 15* and a tsi2 18*
 

im a high speed player and as mentioned above, love the tsi3 as a second tee club but it is nearly worthless hitting into any green. Spin is very low and flight is super penetrating. I really like the tsi2 for hitting into longer greens but don’t find myself hitting it off the tee very often. I’m still working that section of my bag out... I have a tsi3 18* with a 10TX Ventus black that I use for a “driving iron” and interchange that with the tsi2 18*

My driver SS is high 90s, breaching into 100 on a good day.  Coming from an original Epic Sub Zero driver, Epic 3W, and Rogue 5W, I got fitted in a TSi3 driver 10* with the Kuro Kage Black DC 5G SFW stiff.  Love the driver, playing A1 setting with weight 1 or 2 notches to the toe depending on the day.  Did a quick whirl with the TSi2 fairways and as I figured the 16.5* and 21* were good in the same shaft.  However there was a mix up and they ended up ordering the TSi3 in the fairway but I decided to try them anyhow when I got them.  FWIW I actually hit fairways off the deck well for a 12 handicapper (I have a flattish swing plane).  Surprisingly I love them even though I probably should be in the TSi2s.  The TSi3s are anti-left for me so I can really go after them and not worry about overcooking the draw (although have to watch face alignment at address with the 21* which I find common for lofted metals/hybrids). Great off the deck, and although not as forgiving as the TSi2 they still carry well on miss hits.  Bombs on clean hits and I am getting good spin as they plane out real nice for me. The slightly taller face makes them better off the tee than the TSi2 IMO. I tend to like the smaller footprint/taller face over the more pancake like headsso I think I might be better off in the long run with the TSi3 over the TSi2. On the course they have performed great with zero issues.
