Forum Thread of the Day: “Best 3-wood of the newest releases?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Kaexo, who asks fellow GolfWRX members for their opinion on what they feel is the best 3 wood of the recent releases. Described as the “hardest spot in the bag to settle on” by one of our members, an array of different 3 woods get a mention in Kaexo’s thread.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Phil6380: “Cobra F8 is the best I’ve hit. Something about those rails when hitting it out of the turf. I have no fear of hitting down when needed. It’s also my most consistent club off the tee BY FAR! I give up a little distance, but when I need to hit a tight fairway, or I’m not hitting my best, that’s the club I’m grabbing.”
  • calfan36: “King LTD is great if you have some speed/launch. Very low spin, very forgiving, and an amazing feel. Also, I love that I can play it shorter and easily add weight via the space port.”
  • aussieb: “The two best fairways of recent releases are the G400 and Epic SZ for different reasons. G400 for forgiveness and great launch conditions from just about any lie, plus it sounds extremely solid.  Might still make my bag if I can find the right shaft combo, the Epic SZ is better for me than the Rogue for adjustability, ball speeds and head shape.  I found it worked off the short grass better than anything, and if I miss the fairway, it’s more likely to be the hybrid or a layup.”
  • ChipNRun: “Reality check: for many golfers, the best 3W is a 4W – slightly shorter shaft for better control, and extra loft to enhance launch.”

    I just changed my titleist 910f 15.5 with Kai’li 80 that had been so money for the longest time, but I needed just a bit more distance. I picked up a Callaway rogue with the new LAGP Ozik, it’s working out great. Still bonding with the 3W, not as workable as the 910f just wants to go straight. It is absolutely the hardest club in the bag to get right….Good luck peeps

    Three words guys “Tour Edge Exotics”. In the world of 3 woods they are constantly longer hitting clubs.

    There is no “best” golf club…. unless you are a neurotic gearhead who believes he owns the best clubs…. until next year’s models are introduced…

    Purchased a new F8+ 4/5FW, set the loft at 16.5* (same as my previous HL 3W), and proceeded to drive the ball approx 270 with it off the tee and sent a 2nd shot on a par 5 just over the green from 267. Landed (and bounced over a short 250 par 4 green) green yesterday. Every one of those shots was a flag/FW seeker. As smitten as could be with this club.

    Like the last paragraph said, the best 3W is a 4W. I adjusted my Ping G 3W +1 degree for 17 degrees, changed the weight to a 4 gram heavier one and shortened the shaft for swing weight. Tolerably easy to hit off the fairway now.

    The Callaway EPIC is the best fairway wood I have had. And it is still in the bag.

    Hello, admin.

    Interesting website, really!

    The best 3 Work is what you like. Everyone is different and swings different, so what is great for me may be no good for you.

    The best 3 woods I’ve played (and I’ve played a LOT of them) have been the Ping Rapture (the all-Ti version) and the Callaway GBB 815 Alpha.

    Best 3 wood is the SMX 3000 by a long shot….

      “NEW” is a marketing concept.

        NEW is always improved and flashier WITB display of gearhead neuroticism.

“Since switching to a Bettinardi putter earlier this year, I have been so impressed with the quality, touch, and feel of the putter. Bettinardi has the ability to craft anything I want from a solid block of metal, all milled in the USA. This was a big confidence boost to my putting and I look forward to a great partnership.”
