I've used a 13* for about a yr and a  half now and goes pure. Mid to low trajectory and I think the Speeder 757 or and Diamana 83 are the way to go.

The club is absolutely amazing. IMO one of the best if not the best fairway woods out there. I was in a bad situation after a drive on a par 5 (487 yards out) I hit something and it kicked way backwards up by a tee box. This was back when I had no 3 wood. So I hit my v-steel 5 wood to try and get somewhere down the fairway to hopefully make par. I ended up hitting it 305 yards off of the deck!!! No joke at all. It was downwind about 10 mph. As soon as I find a v-steel 3 wood for a good enough price its going in the bag. Anybody looking for a good fairway wood that is easy to hit should go for a v-steel.

I never liked my retail V-Steel woods, I have a Tour V-steel II and it is a much better club.

Have a V Steel 4 wood with the TP Speeder shaft in it.  By far the best fairway wood that I have used in a long time

got a R7 on order, so let's see how it matches up.

The V-Steel was really the only 3 wood that I could ever hit... easy off the deck... a monster off the tee... and it just looked great... I never really had any troubles with it... but I ended up selling it... and now I want it back...

5 stars all the way

great 3 wood from the deck, especially tight lies.  just picked up a 15* 3-wood and have used it for 2 rounds and am very impressed.  i like the stock true temper dynamic golf lite s300 shaft.  i am able to get a high penetrating ball flight.  don't care for it much off the tee, but i don't use a 3 wood off the tee normally.

Just starting out I use a 3-wood off the tee and the V-Steel performed perfectly for me last time out.  I am able to get the ball up fairly well and since using it I have lost my slice and found a bit of an occasional hook.  But I liked it so much I went out and grabbed a 5-wood.

My only regret is that I didn't get a 4 instead of a 3.

I have both the 4 & 7 wood and these things will never leave my bag.  I have wanted badly to find a fww that I could hit off the deck and teed up.  I will look no further, the v-steel fullfils this role.  In the past I raved about how sorry the stock shafts are in this wood, but just the other day I gave it one more try and I was money.  However, I do have an NV 75 stiff in my 7 wood which is getting installed at this point, and I'm dying to get back from the pro shop.  The best feature about this fww is the sole plate, which is raised a bit.  IMO the plate makes this club the most forgiving fww on the market.

In 2-3 years I believe people will still be raving about this gem, like they still do about the Callaway Steelheads.  TaylorMade nailed it.

What can I say that hasn't already been said about the v-steel?  This club rocks.  I have it in 13* and 15* 3-woods (which I interchange) and 5-wood.  One flaw, and I'm being nit-picky...the stock shaft has got to go.  I reshafted my 13* with Fujikura VistaPro Seventy and its perfect...tighter dispersion, better ball flight, more solid feel.  Stock shaft feels a bit inconsistent.

I just replaced my v-steel 5 wood with steel shaft that I absolutely thought was the best club ever, with an identical v-steel 5 wood with the Aldila NV 65(yes 65) and I cannot believe how much better it is. I think lite shafts in fairways are the new way to go, the ball flight was just amazing.

V-STEEL is a bomber and wish it never gets discontinued.

I currently have the 5 and 7 wood, but they are both for sale. I like them, but I never had enough consistency. I think it's my fault for buying the stiff graphite shaft. I've heard the stock shafts are junk, and plus, I have a swing speed in the low-mid 90s so I should probably be using regular flex. That said, they're still awesome off the tee; I just didn't hit them the best off the deck.

Just picked up the 13* 3wood with NV 65-stiff and 18* 5 wood with NV 65-stiff on EBAY.  Tee'd one up on my last round to test the 3wood.  Took a nice easy swing into the wind and hit it 240.  They look nice next to big bro R5 N with GD YS6+ xstiff.

Would recommend.

Good club. I really think the v sole reduces the drag. It cuts thru rough and such. I have a thing for deep faces so I wish the faces was a bit deeper, but otherwise great metal wood. Long!

I absolutely love the v-steels.  They are my favorite clubs period.  I wavered when my shaft broke to an r7 3 wood but switched back after a couple of months.  The v-steel is just better.  I cannot say enough about it.  I really like the DG Lite steel shafts too.  There is no shaft like them available anywhere.  Light and steel = great.  Crazy, but they are being discontinued.  In fact, many stores don't have them anymore.

I had an ebay vender send me a 21* with the stock stiff shaft because I screwed up & accidently bought out a left handed TM 540 21*. I hated this club & it was probable because of the crappy shaft. It was hard to to hit straight & extremely inconsistant in distance. Sometimes it would go 180 yards, other times 220.

I sold it & bought a Sonartec NP-99 21* & couldn't be happier, much better club with qaulity components.

Nice, straight, good dispersion, quiet long and nice sound. (580 is longer somehow, but less straight).

But somehow I feel the stock shaft is a bit weird. The diameter is over average.

I still use it in my bag.

Just picked up a 15* on the close out rack for 85 bucks, put a 6.4 rifle in it.  Played with it today for the first time, really liked it a lot.  Hit off the tee 6 or so time and off the deck twice.  It has some big shoes to fill, my old 15* s2h2.

Ive had my 15 for around half a  year now and i love it.  Great club in general, hits awsome from the tee box and is a breeze to hit from the fairway.  I get a great ball flight and love the feel.  The stock taylormade shaft is decent but i wouldnt mind switching to a fuji or a proforce  :rolleyes:
HIGHLY reccomended

The easiest three wood I've ever hit. More forgiving on off-center hits. Smooth. Sexy sound too.

Larger head promotes confidence.

Just wish I would have put one of these in the bag sooner.

Picked mine up for $88 plus shipping on eBay, brand new.

If you are in the market for a forgiving fairway wood, these must be considered.

Not sure about the shaft, but as far as being closed goes, my T/S 13 degree is definitely more closed than my T-60 15 degree. I feel that the T-60 sits square so I would guess that the T/S sits at least a couple of degrees closed. A little too closed for my liking.

I use the V-Steel 5 wood, 18 degree, stock TM graphite shaft- stiff flex and absolutely love it  :beruo:
I generally have issues with fairway woods but the V-steel just seams to work for me.  I've tried a bunch; Titleist, Nickent, Callaway, Orlimar, Cobra, etc.. and none compare to my - steel.  I can work the ball pretty well with is and it comes off the club face hot every time.
