What GolfWRXers are saying about ‘old but still relevant fairway woods’

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the best old but relevant fairway woods. WRXer ‘moogolfer’ kicks off the thread with his picks, saying:

“If you come across one of these fairways give them a try: R7 TP, Cleveland Launcher Comp and Mizuno MP Titanium. The most recently released club is the Mizuno at 10 years ago with the other two around 15 years ago, which helps make them inexpensive. 

All 3 have titanium construction in varying degrees, and all 3 have great distance. I say this not as they have good distance for old clubs, but have distance comparable to anything you’ll find today. Every now and then you’ll find an RBZ, 2016 M2, 917 or SIM that flys as far as your driver, true, but give one of these old boys a try some time. “

Our members have been sharing which fairway woods they feel fit the bill, and why in our forums.

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.

  • boggyman: “My OG R’ballz is with its trusty Green NV. Good as anything I’ve ever played for myself. It’s still in standby, going nowhere till it collapses.”
  • Chadwickog: “I have an OG Exotics XCG, that’s a wonderful club as well.”
  • tannyhoban: “Funny you say that as I just picked up a R7 Titanium 7 wood. It might come in handy.”
  • marrtinbns: “I just put an 8-9 year old Callaway original Xhot 3w back in my bag. IT fell out of my bag several times it’s so boring, but always seems to be back.”
