Forum Thread of the Day: “Hottest and most forgiving 3-wood?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from nevi adams who asked fellow members their thoughts on what has been the best 3-wood released in recent years. With an emphasis on “the hottest/ most forgiving 3-wood out there”, WRXers have been sharing their opinions 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.

  • the bishop: “Feels like we’ve been in a golden era of FW’s the last few years. I won’t say it’s hard to go wrong, but it’s easy to go right if that makes any sense. I haven’t done a lot of comparing, but I’ve got a 2016 TM M1 that’s a tour issue head that is a really good club. Great driver alternative on shorter/tighter par 4’s but plenty long. It doesn’t lag for distance.”
  • 10of14: “The fairway wood has always been my Achilles heel over the years until I discovered the Ping G25. While I’ve tried to unseat it with some new model trials, I’ve returned to it. It is super easy to hit off the deck. I bag both the 16.5* and 20.0* with the Diamana S+ 70 Blue shaft. A close second for me was the Callaway Rogue, which is definitely longer and better off the tee for me, but not as good off the deck where I need it most. Not the sexiest of choices given all the new stuff, but works for me.”
  • bodhi555: “You can’t go too far wrong with any modern FW – I had great results with my old Vapor Fly. Sadly I got very angry with myself during Club Championship last year, and it kind of developed a rattle after bouncing off a tree root, so needed a replacement. Tried a couple, but long story short, the 917 F3 is an absolute weapon – I gained 20 yards on the Nike instantly. It was also 10 yards longer than the TS3 I initially had in mind.”
  • Young Money: “My vote would go to the G410. I’ve always struggled missing left with 3-woods, and I hit this one so much better.”

    +1 for the cobra f9. I have it in a Graphite Design Tour AD5r2. Carrying 310 with a real penetrating ball flight.

    I have just gotten a Cobra f9 strong 3w tour issue with a hazardous black 70g shaft. Amazing. Ball speed is ridiculous. Was playing a Bertha before and couldn’t get any distance. Cobra now carrying 270 rolling out to 285… love it. Definitely would suggest

New for 2021, Callaway Supersoft and Supersoft Max golf balls

Published

on

Callaway Golf has introduced its new Supersoft and Supersoft Max golf balls, both of which are loaded with the brand’s latest technology.

2021 Callaway Supersoft golf balls

The latest Supersoft balls from Callaway contain a new hybrid cover featuring a Paraloid Impact Modifier made by DOW Chemical. This new impact modifier allowed engineers to create a multi-material construction designed to provide a combination of faster ball speeds, high launch and low spin, soft feel, durability, and maximum greenside control.

 

The high-speed soft compression core of the new Supersoft ball aims to maximize energy transfer to increase ball speeds while promoting a high launch and low spin in longer clubs for more distance.

In addition, the HEX Aerodynamics on the new ball is optimized in design to reduce drag and enhance lift for increased carry and higher flight.

 

Specs, Availability & Pricing

Color Codes: White, Yellow, Green, Orange, Pink, Red

Availability: February 4, 2021

Price: $22.99 per dozen

2021 Callaway Supersoft Max golf balls

Billed as Callaway’s longest golf ball for slower swing speeds, the new Supersoft Max balls feature an oversized design engineered to provide increased consistency and high launch while conforming to golf rules.

The company’s Tri-Blend ionomer cover found in the Supersoft Max balls is specifically built to increase ball speed. This cover material is also designed to create the perfect blend of high launch and low spin in your longer clubs.

The high speed, low compression core aims to enhance energy transfer and provide a maximum super soft feel. Simultaneously, the added forgiveness in the ball is designed to promote more consistent contact for increased distance.
