Higher launching fairway woods – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing high launching fairway woods. WRXer ‘Shanx’ kicks off the thread saying;

“I’m looking for easier to hit drivers and FW woods that will get the ball airborne a little easier. Not looking to break the bank. I like to work the ball a little, nothing GI. Any help is appreciated!!”

And our members have been sharing their best picks 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.

  • Seattlygolfnut: “I’m middle age and need height on my fairways too. Higher launch shaft helped me get the ball up. Loved the Diamana ‘ilima for a long time and now game the RF. Could consider that in addition to higher lofts. Challenge for me is the higher launching heads get smaller.”
  • DoughBack18: “I have a Sim 2 Ti 5 wood, and I have definitely found it to be higher launching. I’ve always been a lower flight player, but I have no issue elevating that club off the tee or off the deck. You can snag a good used one for $200, maybe even a little less so not quite breaking the bank like a new Stealth or something.”
  • Cheezehead19: “My tour edge 7w launches SUPER high.”

    I use a SIM2 Max 16.5 HL and I’m very happy. Sure it is a bit closer to the 5w, but I can hit much longer than the 5w and from the tee is excellent.
