The best 5-woods on the market – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing 5-woods. WRXer ‘Texas_Golfer’ is on the hunt for a new 5-wood and kicks off the thread saying:

“Currently have a cobra F9 and just want something new. It’s the oldest club in my bag haha. What would you say is the best one out right now? Was thinking Ping G425 maybe? Or maybe the new cobra RadSpeed? Looking for any first-hand experience and opinions. Thanks.”

And our members have been sharing their favorite 5-woods in the thread.

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.

  • jbandalo: “Ping G425 fairway woods are exceptional. Super easy to hit and consistent.”
  • Texas_Tom: “I think the G425 is the friendliest and straightest FW out there. Maybe not the absolute longest? But very easy for the 2nd shot on a long hole. The shaft is going to be the main issue. I don’t like the Ping Alta CB shafts, except for the Tour shaft in a 3W. I changed out shafts for the Orange Tensei shaft and love it.”
  • Byrdman2230: “I was playing sim max until I hit the G425 fairways. They are the easiest fairway woods I’ve ever hit. Pair them with the tour 75 shaft, and you’re good to go.”
  • Mobert19: “This forum is sickening. It just made me order a TSi2 5 wood when I have a TSi3 3 wood and 19 degree G425 hybrid. This place is bad news.”

6 instances of incredible wedge stamping at the Shriners Open

Published

on

You love wedge stamping. We love wedge stamping. So, why don’t we take a look at some fine hammer-and-stamp work from the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open?

Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity! TaylorMade’s new MG3 wedge has a nice toe area for stamping, and Harry Higgs has taken a classic route in his ornamentation.

Abraham Ancer has an ownership stake in tequila company Flecha Azul and has taken the opportunity for some free advertising on his 60-degree wedge. Bonus points for his “Ancer” logo in baby blue.

Aaron Dill’s handiwork here features a cool pattern articulation of the company’s signature saw blade.

Another of Dill’s works here. Ian Poulter, Ryder Cup stalwart, pivots from his usual sports car-related stamping to this Team Europe motif.

Haven’t seen this before: Stippled 58-degree stamping on the sole of James Hahn’s high-lofter.

Whether you like Rory Sabbatini or not, and your opinion on his Slovakian citizenship aside, you have to agree this is one of the baddest wedges on tour.
