What is the best 3 wood you've ever used off the deck (turf interaction). As if, this thing was made for the ground

915f  fairways for me and they were cannons off the tee for me and amazing off the deck. Played a 3 & 5 and have been searching for something to duplicate it ever since. Switching to Titleist woods this year from TM to see if I can convert back. 
 

TSR2+ 14.5 set to 16 with a ventus red 7X and then a 7 wood TSR2 with a Ventus Blue 7X. Then a TSR4 with Ventus red 6X.

Cally X-Hot was great off the deck.  Still have mine but need to reshaft.

Maltby KE4 Tour is a really versatile head tee/deck

TEE Xcg-7 and TEE E8. It’s kinda hard to explain, but these have a nice flat bottom and a sort of blunted leading edge, almost impossible to hit fat.

I don't know much about the recent advances in the design of today's 3 woods.  I know they all go pretty far and forgiving.  But did you experience one where you felt like "this thing was made for this".  Thanks wrx

Ping fwy woods are very easy to hit off the deck.

3 woods is better in every way if you cut it an inch short and add some weight to the head. That being said....

 

I prefer the ones that have flatter lie angles if you are only hitting them off the deck.  Brand is isn't necessarily important if turf interaction is the only criteria

For me, the Ping G25 was a great club. I don't recall ever hitting a poor shot with it. Of course, I traded it in. 

The Cleveland Quad Pro (another member posted, above) was also a great club. 

(I dropped the 3 wood in favor a G425 5 wood and that thing is really a nice club.)

The Cleveland Launcher XL 3 wood from 3 years ago is the easiest fairway wood I've ever hit.  I put an old Attas Elements shaft in it and it has given me a reason to carry a 3 wood again.

Once I turned 60, hottest 3W well, no... 4Ws with shorter shaft and a little extra loft flew longer, and more reliably.

 

Even some big hitters do better with 4W than 3W. It depends in part on how you come into the ball.

G425 max is stupid easy off the deck.  Ts3 was another one that was easy and very hot off the face.  I just moved into a stealth 4w playing at 5w length and it’s incredible!  Might be the most forgiving out of the 3.
