Up until this season it was the TEE CB2.

One of the classiest looking, confidence inspiring, shallow faced fairway woods ever made. I still game the 7WD when the course has dried out and the wind has died down. I continued to try others and briefly bagged a couple of 'em but always came back to the CB2.

This year I tried and kept a '17 tour issue M2 3WD that the true loft is 16.2* & 3* open. Still shallow faced and almost automatic from the deck or tee. But if it ever starts to misbehave, the CB2 is standing first in line, again.

Callaway X Hot Pro 3 wood. Best fairway wood ever, period. I gamed it for 3 seasons until I sadly caved the face in on it. Callaway was nice enough to send me an Epic to replace it but its just not the same.

Callaway XR16 non pro 3+ wood.  More shallow than the pros and smaller head than the non pro 3 wood. Sits open too which I like. Didn’t like the tour green so I’m getting a rogue silver installed.

The diablo octane tour is pretty awesome too. I have the 5 wood with fubuki ax and hit some amazing shots with it. Prob never leaving my bag.

I used to play Taylormade V-steels, transitioned into Touredge exotics CB2 which had the most incredible sound that I loved when hit and finally settled in with Touredge exotics Trilogy. I cannot find a better fairway club from the fairway and rough.

I played the Orlimar Trimetal Plus for 10 years and still miss it at times. I should just replace the shaft and give them a go! The Geek DCT fairways are supposed to be awesome as well.

Cleveland Quadpro was a favorite of mine.  Felt nice and was very accurate.

Right now I have a 17' M2 in my bag and while it is a bigger head, I have no problem hitting this thing, it's long and plenty accurate.

+ 1. Its the oldest club still in my bag. 15* w/ an 80x whiteboard cut down to 42.5'' in it. Feels like a 4, plays like a 3.5 by today's standard. Love it

I have a G15 with aldila shaft that is hard to miss with.  It is shorter than today's 3 wood distance standard from companies like Taylor Made and the like, but man does stay in the fairway.
