For the past, I would say the Ping G10 and the Taylormade R5.

Right now, the one I used and like the best is the XR 16 4wd.  I have hit a few different ones and this one is the easiest and longest.  For second choice I would say the GBB 5wd.

Ping G series. Shallow face helps get the ball Air Bourne

Modern callaway fairways are my favorite (xhot, x2hot and xr). The hot face makes these very forgiving especially when hit low on the face.

The easy answer is whatever works for you and gives you confidence.  I still play Ping G25 3 & 5 woods with Graphite Design Tour AD GT 6 shafts.  Had them for years and I know what they do.  If it ain't broke, no need to fix it.

Older and newer Adams Tight Lies. My son loves the older ones of my dad's he's using and I picked up a. Tight Lies 2 this year that is easy to hit off the deck,or tee. The Adams Super S I took out of the bag was awfully close to the Tight Lies.

3w- Adams Tight Lies 2 16 degree

I've been through a number and tee are longest when caught right but R9 has been most consistent. And a nod to the mashie if you're in a little rough.

Ping G25. It's the only 15* 3wood that I can reliably hit off the deck. Thing is as idiot proof as you can make a 3wood.

I've always been a huge fan of the G25 4 wood, but the adjustability of the GBB Fairway, forgiveness and results put it at the top of my list.
I have the 2017 M2 3HL and the 2016 M2 15. Not a fan of the 2017 and the 2016 is edged, again, by the adjustability of the GBB.
And the GBB can be used by pretty much anyone and great off the deck.
