I'm giving up on 3 wood!

Sorta…  I’ve never owned a club 43” long that I could hit well from the ground and I don’t have the swing speed to elevate a 15 deg club from the deck with anything other than a perfect lie.

 

However, a 16.5 degree club, with a smaller head than modern 3 woods, and a 42.25” inch shaft is the cat’s pajamas.

 

Ultimately, the shorter shaft probably has a greater impact than the additional 1.5 degrees of loft.

Lots of posts on this recently. The modern 3-wood just isn't a playable club for most amateurs off the deck.  And with 460cc drivers and hot 5-woods and low lofted hybrid, there isn't a big need for a lot of players.

My 3, 5 and 7 woods all got replaced this year with hybrids. I kept them in the garage for two months, realized that I'd never use them again, donated them to the local high school team.

I play a 5 wood turned down to a 4 wood. Great of the tee, hit or miss off the deck. But the 3 wood was miss or miss off the deck. 

This…opens the face as well and shorter shaft gives you more control. Just wish I would’ve done this a long time ago!

There's a reason I created a topic in this forum regarding those who have a driver then go 4w or 5w haha. Seems as though a lot of people have the same issues as me!
