    Ask them about the 460 Launch Comp driver too, you know, the one that cures TD.

What GolfWRXers are saying about easy to hit fairway woods

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing easy to hit fairway woods. WRXer ‘Gary3Aces’ is an older golfer on the hunt for a fairway wood that is easy to hit with good launch characteristics, saying

“I’m 69 and have been having trouble hitting my fairway woods. I have an M6 TM 5 wood which I like, but I’m still having trouble getting it up high in the air. Looking for a 4 or 5 wood.

I use a regular flex shaft in my clubs. Don’t have the swing speed I use to have. Looking for something that won’t break the bank.”

And our members have been sharing their choices in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Hairpie: “I’ve had success with a Callaway Steelhead XR 5W. It has a deeper face than most but is extremely easy to elevate. I got mine from Callawaygolf pre-owned a month ago for $80 in mint condition.”
  • Drewhill44: “Cobra f8 or f9. Both have a low profile to help get the ball airborne, and the rails help with turf interaction.”
  • Markrip: “Adams Tight Lies 2. I’ve had mine since it came out. I haven’t found anything easier to get up in the air.”

How much do you spend on equipment each year? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing their annual equipment spending habits. WRXer ‘Shanker84′ says he has spent far too much over the past few years and wants to see if fellow members’ spending is comparable – with plenty of different buying strategies displayed.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • MtlJeff: “On average now, maybe 2000-3000$ Canadian. I’ll get a new driver every year plus a hybrid or 3 wood usually. Every couple of years new irons. It probably averages out to 2000-2500.”
  • MelloYello: “It’s fair to say I’ll spend a minimum of about $500 updating something in a given year. The more I play, the more likely it is I spend money tweaking something. Last year I played a lot. By the end of the year, I had swapped driver and irons. This year, I’m thinking about my 3w and my wedges. Not sure either will get replaced, though.”
  • ChipNRun: “Every four years or so, I will spend maybe $600 on clubs. In between, it’s maybe $150-200 or so for a new club or wedge. But, I can usually get a little trade-in or resale $$ for the item replaced. This summer, I will need to replace a rangefinder I lost at a local amateur event – no one turned it in.”
  • Haber: “This year has been an anomaly. Up until a month ago, nothing in my bag was replaced. The lefty phantom x5.5 changed that. I’m a recovering club addict. I went through 4 sets of irons and 3 drivers in the 2 years prior. I’d consider only $600 this year a win… the ping i59’s do look reallllly nice, though.”

SIM vs SIM2 driver – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been comparing and contrasting TaylorMade’s original SIM driver with the latest SIM2. There is much love for both drivers amongst our members, who have been sharing their thoughts on why they feel one is better than the other for them.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • benclab: “I just got the SIM2, and it’s better to me. Feels better, a tad more forgiving and still hits bombs. Funny, I was making fun of the colors a few months ago, and here I am rocking one. Lol.”
  • SmashGolfBall: “The OG SIM has a slightly more fade basis compared to SIM2. And the SIM2 also launches a touch higher with slightly more spins. Ball speed-wise should be identical.”
  • QuigleyDU: “In my opinion, The SIM was better for me.. I don’t think that is the case for everyone. They are different and do different things. The SIM2 is way more forgiving and neutral. It also has a much deeper face that many prefer. I found the SIM to be faster; the SIM2 launches higher and spins a little more. So while they share a name and similar construction. They are pretty different drivers by their DNA.”
  • DallasDan: “SIM2 Max is a monster for me. The weight and balance just fit my swing. Longest driver I have ever hit.”
