Looking for a new five wood and was considering the Callaway Steelhead, Steelhead III, Big Bertha or X. Anyone have experience with any of these and able to reccomend one?

Come on. 14'000 members and only one has ever tried a Callaway fairway wood? What I would ideally like is a good spread of opinions to allow me to decide. Please make an effort to post your opinions.

Just saw this - took my new Cally X 5 wood to the course today - it's tremendous.

 

What's odd - it that the tip is .350, I usually take a stiff but am using a regular flex. May have to change the shaft later but it's working so far. Easy to make clean contact. long and high.

I just put the 2004 Big Bertha 3 and 5 wood in my bag. And they aren't going anywhere for a long time. They are shafted with Nippon 950 steel, and are easily the best fairway woods I have hit. The 3 wood is solid and suprisingly long off the tee, and idiot proof off the deck. The 5 wood is the real gem. I can hit that thing with authority. The sole is versitile, I can hit it off the fairway or out of the rough with ease. In fact I was just overwhelmed how well it plays out of the rough. Very forgiving, carries well for the trajectory. I'm giving serious consideration to taking out my 3 iron and getting myself the matching 7 wood, they are that good.

I have a steel head that knocked my 2 iron out of the baga bout 1 year ago and I have never looked back.

 

it comes off the club wonderfully and I can hit it anywhere. It is so easy to hit off the tee a blind man can do it. Example: yesterday I was 230 out on a par 5 after a nice drive. Side hill lie, the ball above my feet to a slightly elevated green. The ball came off the club wonderfully and landed softly on the green 25 feet from the pin. That club has allowed me to 2 putt for a bunch of birdies.

Right - here are my thoughts. A lot of good feedback on the Callaway Steelhead. If I'm able to find one that will be a definate purchase. However I think I may have a better chance of finidng a Big Bertha and so I am on the look out for that. Thanks for all the reviews and if anyone has any other views I would appreciate hearing them.

I've been playing the X 5 wood for about two months and it's the best fairway wood out there next to the TEE Exotics which I have in a 3 wood. The X sets up square and is easy to hit off the tee or turf. It's long, straight and hits the ball high but, not too high. I agree with some of the previous posts that it may be Callaway's best ever. :)

I've owned the Steelhead.

 

Nothing comes close to the X 5 wood.

I just demo the Callaway X 5 wood this evening. Played nice, it sure would fit in nice to my other two X Callaways. It was easier to hit then my hybryd, however I worry that my home course does really require a 19* wood and with the local pro selling the X 19* for $200 plus I either explore ebay or wait till I move to another course where the club is necessary.
