Anyone going for CBs is a poser.  The XCG5 is the all time best fairway period!!!   That includes off the tee and the deck.

Pardon me... But I prefer my 3 wood to NOT be the size of a driver from 2003... And actually like it to work more then 5 yards left or right. ��

I think that's an important distinction that's not mentioned enough here.

CB woods are small heads for those who like to work the ball.

XCG's are relatively large heads (much larger than CB's).

I'm not enough of a good ball-striker to go for a small fairway wood, and for me, it's mainly a tee club, so I don't mind if it's the size of a 2003 driver.

The EX10 Beta seems to be a nice middle ground between XCG series and CB series.

XCG3 is stupid easy

I have a CB3 13.5 in the spare bedroom (got m2 tour issue recently) that is an absolute cannon. I couldn’t hit it straight to save my life but that sucker would fly 270+ when hit on the screws. Now it needs a new home.

That is a completely different head.

I have the EX9 Long 15* in my bag and have great luck with it off the deck.  The 13* version was a bit harder to get the height I needed but the 15* with the S+ shaft is working out incredible.  Plus off the tee its longer then my 14* mini driver was.

EX10 Beta 16.5 has been the best fairway wood that I have hit.  XCG7 Beta and XCGV receive honorable mention.

Looking for a 4 wood with a shallow-ish face...will get much more use off the deck with an occasional tee shot.

What fits the bill in the Tour Edge offerings?

If you are looking to buy new, the EX10 or EX10 Beta fits the bill.  The Beta has a little taller face, but is pretty forgiving for what it is.  The previous models can be found for great prices on the secondary market (EX9, XCG7 Beta, XCG7 (non-Beta), XCG6, XCGV).  Hard to go wrong with TEE fairways.

Kicking myself for not buying a EX9 last night with the 15% ebay coupon.  Probably for the best considering the draw bias.

I have an EX10 Beta that is by far one of the best fairways I have ever owned.  It put the M2 Tour I had before out to pasture.  Hits equally well off the deck or off the tee and forgiving.
