Today from the Forums: “Most fade biased fairway wood/hybrid?”

Published

on

Today from the Forums we take a look at the best fade biased fairway woods currently on the market. WRXers have been discussing the best fade-biased models and also discussing different shaft options that can help achieve the ideal shot shape.

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.

  • lefty1978: “I have a Callaway GBB Epic sub-zero 15° 3 wood that is pretty fade bias. I also found the Callaway XR16 is as well.”
  • JoeFrigo: “Most fade biased wood and hybrid are both the Tour Edge CBX119… both are low spin and great ball speed monsters. Unless you want to go with an m5 3w, open the face and set the weight to fade…. But from hitting everything, I had the most consistent left to right flight from the CBX119.”
  • swizbeatz: “Ever go a little heavier and stiffer? I have a 7 wood I’m trying instead of a hybrid and went 80 S, tipped and an extra half-inch, and 1 inch short. Easy to fade and you know I don’t say that often.”
  • G-Bone: “That’s easy…Get an M5 open it 4º… and slide the 65-gram sole weight to fade. A stiff tipped shaft won’t hurt either. I’ll give you $100 buck if you can hook it…Without stopping your hips and flipping your hands, that is!”

    Whatever 3 wood is in my hands when I’m going for a par 5 in 2 with trouble right is definitely the most fade biased.

Jimmy Walker spotted testing L.A.B. Blade, graphite putter shaft at Valspar Championship

Published

on

The putting green at a PGA Tour event is always full of interesting things as players get ready for the week ahead, and this week at the Valspar Championship in Palm Harbor, Florida, is no different.

One of the biggest trends in golf is technology-packed graphite shafts for putters, and we continue to see them in more players’ bags week after week. Louis Oosthuizen had a BGT Stability Tour in play last week at the Zurich Classic, and this week, we spotted 2016 PGA Championship winner Jimmy Walker working with a L.A.B. Blade putter fitted with an LA Golf Shafts Prototype graphite putter shaft.

Although we don’t have the specs of the exact shaft Jimmy is using, LA Golf shafts are well recognized as being one of the leaders in creating ultra-stable graphite shafts for the tour’s biggest hitter Bryson DeChambeau, who not only uses their Texas Rebar shafts in his irons but also a specially designed shaft for hit putter too.

As for Jimmy, this is an interesting move since one of the bright spots of his 2021 stats is his putter where he currently ranks 40th on the PGA Tour in strokes gained: putting.

Published

on

Adidas Golf is bringing the classic Stan Smith colorway to the course, with the new unmistakable white and green golf shoe.

Building upon the new PimeGreen upper made with high-performance recycled materials1 as part of Adidas’ mission to End Plastic Waste, this version is also waterproof (one-year warranty) to help keep golfers dry both on and off the course.

The new Stan Smith golf shoe features a PU cushioning in targeted areas in the midsole to go alongside a PU die-cut sockliner in a bid to provide maximum comfort.

The shoe also contains an adiwear spikeless outsole that features lugs inspired by the shoe’s original sole design, offering some added traction for all course conditions to go along with their style.

“When we were talking about bringing this shoe into golf, the original white and green colorway was a must-have as part of our planning. The Stan Smith silhouette is known throughout the world for being so versatile from a fashion standpoint, so we’re excited to give golfers that same style and versatility for when they head out to the course, now in a more sustainable way.” – Masun Denison, global footwear director, Adidas Golf.

As an ode to the traditions of the past, Adidas has also included a removable white kiltie to provide players another way to wear their shoes and give off some added flair for their round.

This classic white and green colorway of the Stan Smith Golf will be available on adidas.com, through the Adidas app, and at select retail partners worldwide beginning Saturday, May 1.
