Forum Thread of the Day: “Hottest and most forgiving 3-wood?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from nevi adams who asked fellow members their thoughts on what has been the best 3-wood released in recent years. With an emphasis on “the hottest/ most forgiving 3-wood out there”, WRXers have been sharing their opinions in our forum.

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.

  • the bishop: “Feels like we’ve been in a golden era of FW’s the last few years. I won’t say it’s hard to go wrong, but it’s easy to go right if that makes any sense. I haven’t done a lot of comparing, but I’ve got a 2016 TM M1 that’s a tour issue head that is a really good club. Great driver alternative on shorter/tighter par 4’s but plenty long. It doesn’t lag for distance.”
  • 10of14: “The fairway wood has always been my Achilles heel over the years until I discovered the Ping G25. While I’ve tried to unseat it with some new model trials, I’ve returned to it. It is super easy to hit off the deck. I bag both the 16.5* and 20.0* with the Diamana S+ 70 Blue shaft. A close second for me was the Callaway Rogue, which is definitely longer and better off the tee for me, but not as good off the deck where I need it most. Not the sexiest of choices given all the new stuff, but works for me.”
  • bodhi555: “You can’t go too far wrong with any modern FW – I had great results with my old Vapor Fly. Sadly I got very angry with myself during Club Championship last year, and it kind of developed a rattle after bouncing off a tree root, so needed a replacement. Tried a couple, but long story short, the 917 F3 is an absolute weapon – I gained 20 yards on the Nike instantly. It was also 10 yards longer than the TS3 I initially had in mind.”
  • Young Money: “My vote would go to the G410. I’ve always struggled missing left with 3-woods, and I hit this one so much better.”

    +1 for the cobra f9. I have it in a Graphite Design Tour AD5r2. Carrying 310 with a real penetrating ball flight.

    I have just gotten a Cobra f9 strong 3w tour issue with a hazardous black 70g shaft. Amazing. Ball speed is ridiculous. Was playing a Bertha before and couldn’t get any distance. Cobra now carrying 270 rolling out to 285… love it. Definitely would suggest

Today from the Forums: “New Axis 1 Tour-HM models at the 2020 Honda Classic”

Published

on

Today from the Forums shines the spotlight on new Axis 1 Tour-HM models featured at this week’s Honda Classic. The flat-sticks have garnered lots of reaction from WRXers, with our members currently split on the unique designs.

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.

  • tiger99210: “I like them. Doesn’t look Odd at all.”
  • Barracuda: “I don’t get the hate on companies that are actually trying to do something better than what we have available. I don’t play axis1, but it was definitely on my shortlist, I ended up with a LAB putter. It does look funky; it also helps me score better than my stunning queen B6.”
  • Steel Dillo: “I’d be more interested if they were priced reasonably. Just don’t see what drives their cost up comparable to a fully milled specialty brand other than having Rose’s name on them. IMO, they should be in that $200-$250 range like their other putters.”

The Cut Blue DC contains a 4-piece construction with a urethane cover designed to maximize spin and greenside feel, while the ball’s 360 dimple pattern is designed to increase aerodynamics.

The latest ball from Cut Golf is fully conforming to USGA rules, features 105 compression (up from 90 on the original Cut Blue) and arrives in both white and atomic yellow color codes.

The Cut Blue DC is available to purchase now at CutGolf.com and costs $29.95 per dozen.
