I went TS2 as well. Have always played f2 woods. Tried both TS2 and TS3 15 degrees at a Titleist Thursday. With the same exact shafts (Tensei 60) the TS2 flew higher and straighter. And was more forgiving. TS2 is more like the F2.

The big difference in the two is placement of the weight. For the TS2 the weight is all the way in the back which makes he ball fly higher and makes it more forgiving. The TS3 weight for the wood is really close to the face, which lowers spin, lowers flight and makes it less forgiving.

It's a shame they don't have the Tensei Pro Blue in an 80G offering as a custom shaft.

They do, it's just an upcharge. Same thing with the TX flex diamana's and some others.

I was skeptical about the 16.5 that the fitter was trying to put me into, but couldnít ignore the numbers. Guess Iím at the age where I need help with launch to get the carry I need. Look great and sound great, too. Hard to pony up $300 for a club I hit twice per round at most but tempted to upgrade the 917.
Cant go wrong with the 917 itís the best 16.5 4 wood Iíve ever used by far.

Did they change the weights on the TS 3 woods like they did for the drivers?

Yes, but the old weights will still work also

I hit both yesterday and didnít care for ts3 fairway wood. The ts2 seemed much more forgiving. It did set up closed so I flatten the lie angle and delofted  it. Not sure on shafts though. Didnít like the 1100 and the smoke just okay. Did happen to hit the tensei blue but it was too soft. I want to hit this in x flex.

Just got my TS2 15 degree Tensei 65. First range session and am thrilled with the club. Over the years Iíve had the 909, 913 and 917 f2 heads and this one feels better than them all. Easy to hit off a tee and deck. Was fit at a Titleist Thursday a couple weeks ago. Difference between the TS2 and TS3 during fitting for me was the the TS2 went higher and drew (if thatís a word:))TS3 went lower and faded. I like to hit draws so went with the TS2.

Hit these recently and ordered up a 21 degree with tensei pro white 70 in it. The ts2 sat up great in higher lofts.

I ended up with a 15* TS3 set up with a Mitsubishi Diamana Ltd S+ Blue 70 (X-Stiff).  Interestingly enough I ended up getting fitted into the Smoke on my TS2 driver.  My TS3 15* with this shaft combo has a really nice penetrating flight - I do agree with you on the note around forgiveness...my combo rewards a good swing (gotta work on that!).

Anybody know the head size (cc) for the ts3 5 wood (18 degrees)? Isnít rule of thumb just subtract 20cc from the stated 3 wood head size?

Yes i felt the TS2 sat closed too and ended up getting a 18 a delofting it too. I was going to get the 16.5 but like how the 18 degree sat more the the shape.

3 Weeks ago I picked up a 15 deg. TS3 with Tensai shaft. Its really great off the Tee. I've played 4 quality rounds with it, very happy.. I had a older Titleist 13 deg that was in my bag like 11 years, it was time..
