I cracked the face of my beloved Adams Insight BTY 14.5* and I have no backup.  I started a WTB ad: http://www.golfwrx.c...ght-bty-3-wood/ in hopes that someone has an extra one of these lying around.  However I am interested if anyone has experience with these and knows of a similar performing clubhead.  I have always loved this clubhead and I am looking to find a newer fairway wood that could fill this unfortunate void.  What I really want in a fairway wood is something that has a relatively shallow face, and launches the ball with very little spin.  I would love to hear people's suggestions, and in advance, thank you for the help.

Fred

Man that is tough I absolutely love my BTY and fear the day something like that happens. The closest thing I have hit to the BTY is the TEE CB4 Tour

The BTY was an absolute classic!

You know, the Ping I20 is fairly similar is profile and not much bigger

@one_putt_blunder: I have tried the CB4 as one of my teammates has one (i am a collegiate player) and I wasn't able to make friends with it.  Perhaps its just the shaft but I don't really like the way the club sets up.  This is also an area of great importance to me, appearance from address.  Also for reference I recently put together a 13.5 titleist 906f2 with essentially the same shaft as my BTY and I hated it.  Confusing/concerning.

Thanks for the response,

Fred

Also for reference I played a graphite design pershing 85tx in my BTY.  Low spin is a big priority as you can tell.

I would agree on the I20. The new Titleist might be worth a try too. Had the bty and loved it. There is a 14.5 on fleabay with v2 85 stiff used for $70....

The one that jumps out is the Super XTD 14.5*. It's not unplayable deep and would maintain the compact profile.

The Mizuno MP Ti is shallow and still gives off extremely low spin. Not overly forgiving tho. You could also look at the old Adams Tour Issue 4060. Plenty around and cheap.
