Technospaz, ur comments on the G10 4W, pls thks

Errr... good club? Haha... seriously, it's a solid FW. Easy to launch and quite forgiving. I'm not big on FWs so take my comments with a pinch of salt. That said, the G10 FWs were always well rated, and scored a Gold on the 2009 Golf Digest Hot List. Mine's the draw variant which I understand is quite rare and obviously, meant to help slicers like myself Smile

I'm using G20 3 Fwd ... And I find it easy to launch, far and with a nice soft ping sound ... More forgiving than my i15 hybrid...

if you prefer a nice Impact sound, G10 or G20 is the one you should pick up.

The Maruman i4000x is very Forgiving but the sound is....uhmmm....like hitting a tin can.

Lastly, maruman i4000x has the biggest club head in the market.
they're so forgiving that even my Wife, has been using the 13* Maruman 2 wood i4000x.

u should consider the cobra baffler rail fairway wood. one of the easiest woods i've hit. it kicked out the callaway woods from my bag instantly

also, my personal view is that u only really need 1 fairway wood in your bag. in my case, it's the 5wood.

it's gotta be callaway diablo edge (still in the bag of Phil Mickelson). it has got the wide and shallow clubface that enables you to get the ball airbone easier and it's FORGIVING !! Smile

For me the R11 4FW, 910F and Ping G15 are all good FWs. Easy to hit and got nice sound. But thats me, prefer wide and shallow face FW.

Your welcome.

Beehome, on my part, i usually add an inch long on my 3Fw. like 44inch
and i choked an inch when I am going to used it. With an inch long, your ball will fly to a much greater distance Specially when you hit it on the sweet spot.

Most 3Fw on the market are 43 to 42.5 inch long.
I would normally add an inch or inch and a half.

with Fw, you dont really need to smashed it. A smooth rhythm can make your ball fly farther

yes it does, and the ball really flies.

I think TM should continue on making their V steel Fw
Their carpenter steel sounds Good upon impact.

How about the Cobra FW & Hybrid?
