So after playing my current set up i am seeing that the 818 H2 hybrid is the only club that just doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the bag. I have also gotten away from a full bag of Titleist and i don't want a second driving iron anymore so i am asking who makes the best damn 5 wood? My only real criteria at this point is a neutral or open face and a fairly flat lie angle. I do like the profile of my 917 F3 3 wood however they do not come in a 5 wood model. Any thoughts would be very helpful guys... haven't gamed a 5 wood in many years.

What's In The Bag This Week:

Rogue Sub Zero 10.5 deg driver with TS Atmos Blue 6 (45 inch)
Rogue Sub Zero 3 wood 15 deg with TS Atmos Blue 7 (42.75 inch)
Taylormade 790 3 iron with DG 105
Mizuno MP18 Blades 4-PW with PX LZ
Mizuno T7 50 and 54 deg wedges with PX LZ
Cameron Newport 3 @ 34 inch
Chrome Soft X ball

I believe the Callaways are predominately flatter in lie than others for off the shelf.

I play a TaylorMade Stage 2 5wood and love it! It it fits your eye it’s as solid as they come in my opinion. Also inexpensive on the discount racks.

I have a g25 5 wood that is by far the best 5 wood I've ever hit. Only thing is it's not great on windy days so it gets swapped out for a 18 degree U45.

All 5 woods will perform pretty much the same. If you like your 917F3, I would start out trying an F2 5 wood with the same shaft. It will be the most like your 3 wood, in looks and feel, but it should be easier to hit off the deck.

i have been looking at the F2 to start however don't want to limit my options... some 5 woods look very closed and upright so i doubt they all perform pretty much the same.

You can check the lie angles. Callaway seems to have the flattest lie angles. I game an X2 Hot Pro 5 wood. Compact cannon. In TaylorMade, their Tour versions are flatter than the standard ones. I like the ‘16 M2. Also like the profile off the turf of the Mizuno ST180. Sits nice and low.

Meeks makes a good point; typically "tour" labeled woods are a smidge flatter.

Go to CPO and get an Epic Subzero now.  They’re having a sale and that is a great club.

Give a Rogue a try.  Great fairways (and drivers).  As long as Epic, a whole lot easier and more consistent to handle, at least for me (I'm an old hacker, for what it's worth).

Still playing 913F fairways. Nothing has come close to taking them out of the bag. The 5W is my favorite club in the bag, it’s got a nasty topline scar from a loose sandy range but I’m afraid to get it re-finished or a new head in case the magic escapes.

i was able to demo a couple of Rogue woods tonight. A standard and a sub zero. i liked the sub zero quite a bit more. The standard model seemed to want to go straight left of target compared to the sub zero. Both clubs had the same shaft. The ball flight was noticeably lower with the sub zero but not too low, was actually a nice mid to mid/high flight that started on line. Once i get a couple more options i have access to a trackman i can use at the range. Thanks for the replies so far guys! Seeing your answers especially helps with those where i can see your setups in your signature... that way i can see where it falls into the equation for you.

Don't worry about all the newer stuff. The best 5 wood ever made was the Taylormade V-steel. 18 degrees.

I went with the normal rogue 5w over the sub zero version. Softer landing imho.

My 3w is the sub zero for more roll out.

The rogue woods lineup is amazingly forgiving and accurate. This coming from a guy that’s always used titleist.

Ive tried for 5years to kick out my tour issued rbz, nothing has yet. Ive cracked one and im on my last one every round or range session is like Russian Roulette.

Had an m216 5 wood that was very good just too upright for me.

Best 5 wood I ever used was the TEE XCG5.  Right now, I have both a PING G25 4 wood cut down to 42 inches and an Adams TLII Ti 5 wood.  G25 keeps finding its way to the bag.

Ping fairways perform the best for me.

But according to this thread Ping, Callaway, Taylormade, Tour Edge Exotics, Adams, Titleist, Cobra, and Nike all make the best 5 wood.

I agree. But then again, I’ve only carried one 5w in my life and it was a V-Steel 18° with DG X100 steel shaft and it was amazing. Was it THE best... probably not, but it’s all I really ever tried hitting and loved it.

Be prepared when asking this question because the recommendations will most likely be biased to what people have in their bags...nobody make a best anything.
