Golfers love fairway woods that allow them to hit long, straight shots off the tee and off the ground. But fairway woods are not only some of the hardest clubs to hit consistently. They’re also some of the toughest to fit.

We surveyed six of the top-ranked clubfitters in North America to identify the best fairway woods on the planet, which are longer, straighter and better looking than the fairway woods of the past. Click here to read the specifics on the voting committee and how we picked the best.

[one_fourth last=”no”]callaway x hot fairway[/one_fourth][three_fourth last=”yes”]Callaway X Hot: The X Hot Pro has a more forward CG than the standard model, giving it a flatter trajectory with less spin. Both models feature a modern version of Callaway’s warbird sole for enhanced turf interaction from less-than desirable lies.

[one_fourth last=”no”]tour-edge[/one_fourth][three_fourth last=”yes”]Exotics XCG6: The XCG6 is the longest Exotics fairway wood yet. It has a 15-3-3-3 beta titanium cup face, a high-density steel body and a tungsten sole plate that are combo-brazed for the ultimate in power and forgiveness.

[one_fourth last=”no”]ping-g25[/one_fourth][three_fourth last=”yes”]PING G25: The G25 has more ball speed than the G20, with a higher launch, and more forgiveness. Their smaller size and matte black finish makes them look as good as they perform.

[one_fourth last=”no”]adams ls fairway wood[/one_fourth][three_fourth last=”yes”]Adams LS: The titanium face and crown, combined with a stainless steel sole creates an exceptionally low center of gravity and thin, fast face. That means gains in speed and trajectory.

  1. The Callaway X Hot Pro is the real deal. I was a bit concerned about the lack of adjustability and initially I was hooking it pretty good, but after spending some time with it I have to say it is the best fairway I’ve ever owned. It feels and sounds perfect and the sole is perfect from any lie. The “compression channel” thingy on it is legit. It really does go so much farther than any fairway I’ve owned. My advice is not to be worried about going with a stiffer shaft in this because it gets the ball up no problem and the stiffer shaft is nice for control.

  2. How about the 3deep. I found it really good. Off the tee and off the deck. Best 3 wood I found. Club is for better players but the best I have tested.

    • The sound and feel of the covert is ridiculous! It’s just like hitting plastic golf clubs, The people also don’t like the ‘SWOOSH’ logo on the clubhead. For me the swoosh is okay but the sound and feel is just horrible.

    • Clubs work different for everyone. I hate the Covert, but love the 913F. The club works for me, but not for everyone. Different strokes for different folks.

      • Yeah, same here. Hated the Covert too, and the AMP Cell just flat outperformed for me over the Covert and the RBZ Stage 2.
