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.

M2 ('17 T.I.) 10.5* TP6HD X
M2 ('17 T.I.) 3WD Veylix Rome 888X
Sonartec Md-19* Veylix Rome 988X
Srixon 745 4-7/945 8-P KBS Tour V 120X
Miura 1957 51, 55, & 59 Nippon SP Blue

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 just picked up a Tour Edge e8 (non beta) about a month ago and I'm loving it. G20 is my all time favorite, but the e8 is giving it a run for the money. It's definitely longer than the G20.

circa 2010 baffler rail f.

from deck, out of a divot, out of thick rough.  these predate wicked hot faced fairways, but just fantastic for consistent distance.  3w will not challenge driver. these are meant for approaches not driver replacement.

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.
