I am a 14 handicap and have always struggles hitting 3 wood exp off the fairway.  would i be best suited getting the regular version?  is it easier to hit than the pro?  can anyone compare the 2 please?

I last had the 910F and could not hit it well off the fairway really if that helps..

The standard x hot faiway has a larger head and a cg that is a little further back in the head which will help you launch it in the air easier and be more forgiving. The x hot pro has a smaller head with a forward cg which will launch lower with less spin and be less forgiving. If you struggle hitting fairway woods off the deck then i would suggest you go with the standard. Ultimately it is your decision so i would test both and see which gives you the best results.

Standard sounds like a better fit but honestly the best thing to do is demo them when the pro comes out (i think that's next week)  If you want a smaller profile the pro would be the choice.  For me it's easier to hit a smaller club off the deck.

I switched from a 910F set to 14.25* to the X Hot Pro 15*.  The x hot pro looks a bit bigger at address with maybe a little bit wider face than the 910 which makes it appear as though it might launch a little easier.  In practice, it launches slightly higher/easier and goes about 10-15yds farther than my 910F.
