Appreciate all the responses.
My driver SS is high 90s
I like an open face
I typically hit the ball low.

Another vote here for the 2016 M2 15*.  Recently picked up a head and threw it on a Proforce V2 66s with proper tipping... This thing is almost as long as my G400 driver.  I'm not a super long hitter so I'll take it, but my second option is a 915f 16.5*.  Great high flight and likes to go straight, long, but not M2 long.

I think any of the modern club heads could fill your need.  I highly recommend you go get fitted for a proper shaft instead of focusing on the club head.

I had an M2 3 wood that I just loved the look of.  Couldn’t get any kind of consistency with it off the rack.  Was fitted into a Tour AD and the difference was huge!

Good luck!

Another vote for the Big Bertha Alpha 816 - great low cost option, adjustable, low spin, looks great at address, and much easier to hit than the name suggests.

Paired with the Purple Ice or something with a similar profile. (If it fits you!)

I concur, and you can interchange shafts to find your optimal combination!

Another vote for 816 alpha.  I have one on bst if u wanna try it out, has a chrome elements shaft that fits your swing speed.

Also a huge fan of the f8 and f8+ 3 woods. Baffler a are awesome.

F8+ was too small for me

I wish the standard rogue was neutral and not closed.  Wasnít a fan of the sz.  I wish they were adjustable too. Didnít care for m3 head either. Currently using a m2 tour 3hl but looking forward to new heads in 2019. Iím curious how the new Titleist ts2 are.  I like the adjustability of them. I donít feel like ping fairways are that hot.  I do love the ls driver though.

My brother in law has the M2 HL 16.5 with AD-DI 7s and it’s a ridiculous combo.  And he uses 75 gram graphite shafts in his irons.  He hits that 3 wood so well i wonder why he even bothers with his M1 driver w 50 gram Tensei blue.  I hit it too and am jealous:)

My M2 with HZRDUS High loft was....high----way too high!  It left too big a gap from driver.
My M4 tour with Oban Tour Limited shaft is the longest 3 I have hit.  Second in length would be the now gone Rogue SZ with HZRDUS Yellow

Of course my 3 wood is like some folks 3i :-).  A super well struck 3wood for me is 235 carry so have to consider that in the equation. It is my club of choice for a carry of 220 to 235.

Since I don't know your swing much....and going just by ballspeeds... I've tested just about every new 3wood in the last 3-4 years... and for pure ball speeds......

Cobra LTD
Rogue SZ
M3

...produce the fastest ball speeds. The sleeve of the M3/LTD would allow you to tweak launch conditions.

edit:  ballspeeds validated on my GC2/HMT.
  
Not sure about the Rogue or M3, but the Cobra LTD was crazy long.   Like it messed with my yardage gaps it went so long.   I am playing the F8+ now and it is more in line with what I like to see distance wise.

Have to agree here! If you want distance, it's Rogue.

Another vote for the Rogue woods. I have not hit a Callaway fairway club in years and the new ones are outstanding. I am also really liking the TM M4 Tour Fairway and the TS offerings . I can highly recommend any of these 3.

Cobra LTD is one of the longest fairway woods I've ever hit.

Some people have issues elevating them off the deck. Mine has an elements Chrome shaft and I have no problem at all. I had one with the stock Rogue Black shaft last season, and I do remember it being harder to get up in the air.

I game a Callaway xr16. I'm not sure what its mechanically meant to do, and I've never hit it on a launch monitor, but on the course I hit high long bombs with it. I have no problem hitting it into greens because I can get it so high in the air.

I second this, got one off CPO
super easy to launch high and i gained some yards too.

Did a bunch of testing today seems like I get the most carry and ball speed w the Rogue.  Shaft was an Oban Izawa which was a nice surprise.  But even w other shafts I seem to get the best performance from the Rogue head.
