I used to think that way when I would read Golf digest best equipment for whatever current year. I would read the different players reviews of each then pick one up and completely think differently. Best 3 wood is the one that gets the job done and one that you can grab at any time and have a Stenson confidence in it. Thats the best one to have.

I lucked out and found a Cally Epic "Tour only" glued hosel 3 wood at the local shop with an Aldila Rogue 125 MSI 70x. It is SO good. I've had a few 3w I've loved over the years - Nike T60, RBZ Tour, Titleist 913fd, Cally Epic, and G400 are my favorites, but this one is ridiculously good.

That is a sick looking head with the standard hosel. Is the tour only head the same size as the standard head? It appears slightly smaller in this pic, but that could be perception with the glued hosel.

I have a 2017 M1 HL and 15deg. The 15deg is crazy long for me. Both are stock shaft, stock everything. I just put the weight in the toe of the 15deg (and leave the 17deg as it came off the rack) so it doesn't go left and it's great. I've got the HL in the bag right now. Don't need the extra length of the 15deg and the extra height from the 17deg loft is so good off the fairway. Best three wood I've ever had. These just beat out the 2017 M2 tours, which are pretty damn good too. I've had some old favourites and one I just gave to a mate that have served me well (a Srixon F45 tour glued head with an Attas 6star 7s in it) and have tried some of the new ones (G400, 917F, JPX900 etc) but nothing gets close to the 2017 M1 fairways for me.

Iíve tried almost all of the Ď18 and earlier offerings. Iím currently using the Rogue sub zero and I live it! Ball flight, accuracy, looks and distance are great. Iím thinking of changing to the TS3 for the new year. We will see.

I haven't found one to bet my Cobra f6.  However, I did just put an idiot mark on it!!!  My OCD might make me look a little harder.

What is everyones thoughts on the current best 3 wood with the new releases that have came out?

I can't remember exactly who it was but one of the pros interviewed on The Gear Dive podcast said it best (paraphrasing): "The 3-wood is a fickle mistress. When you find one you like, don't let it go." AMEN!

When I did my TPI fitting back in 2011 when I was a semi-good player I literally confused the fitter and it took forever to find anything that performed for me, and I've had the same struggles with every fitting since. I'm currently gaming an M3 with an Atmos Black 6S that isn't too bad, but am still dreaming of the day I finally find my fickle mistress. Sigh...

Maybe it'll be one of this new crop? PXG Gen 2? M5 Ti? Fingers crossed for my Club Champion session later this month!

I demo’d a TS2 this weekend with the stock Tensei in it....wow. Straight rocket launcher for me and my swing. The Tensei shaft is just perfect for how I swing the club to. Was longer, felt better, and sound was better compared to my Ping g400. I ordered one immediately.

Probably shouldnít be responding in this thread. Iíve only really played 13.5 or 16.5/17 degree woods.

I have a soft spot for the razr fit and razr fit xtreme lines, though. Played 3, 4 and 5 woods in both models. Felt great, looked sleak, and were affordable. They were performers, too.

The longest I ever played was an sldr hl 17. It was nearly as long as my driver. Sounded pretty great from what I remember, muted whack. Sometimes it was harsh and it seemed small to my eye. Mishit it too much to keep it.

Switched from mizuno to titleist irons and Iíve got this ocd thing where I like to see all the same brand clubs in my bag (doesnít apply to the driver, still rocking the razr fit xtreme). Iím in a 910f 15 right now. Outside of the standard titleist line up mark on the crown, I like it. I know exactly where I miss when I do miss. If there was any knock on the razr, I sometimes had a hard time figuring out the miss hits. I donít think the 910 is longer than the razr but it isnít much shorter and feels as good with better feedback.

There's nothing in the rule book that says you can't play drunk.

any love for the ts2/ts3?
A lot of love here for TS3. Its a little monster. Set at 16.5 with a smoke 6.5 in it. It checks all the boxes. I know Taylor makes a nice piece but when you add the shaft weight between 80 and 90 grams the head vanishes. Great piece on a budget is the 915f2.
