Hey Everyone,

I was able to get a USED XR 16 3-Wood for $33 and a NEW Cobra F7 3-Wood for $83. . Both are the correct flex and everything. Which should I keep? What should I do with the other?

One really is not “better” than the other.

Go hit them both at a range and see which one you make friends with the fastest.

You’ll prefer one or the other after a basket of balls.

And that matters because?...Why?  You might want to return it?

If so just flip a coin. No one can guess which one you might like better.

The value of a new F7 at this point vs a used F7 is not much. What.. $84 new for the F7 and $70 used? Just hit it. The F8 is going to be pretty similar to F7 and I loved the feel and sound of it. The rails help. XR16 I gamed for a season and it was super draw biased and sounded horrible compared to the F8.

Don't buy clubs based on resale value.

If returning the F7 is an option, I'd suggest hitting the XR-16. If it works for you and gives the results you're looking for, there's no need to hit the F7.

Put both in the bag, and whichever one performs worse---throw it into the lake tomahawk style.
