lol. dont say that la bro. im only getting this distance after hours upon hours of fitting with my club fitter. i used to drive a rubbish 180m (including roll!) with the RBZ stage 2 even though it was 'fitted' for me. got rid of it and my old (ancient) PING irons and now I'm playing better. realised that it wasnt me, but the equipment (just needed the right shaft for my swing speed). lolll

My Titleist 3w (904F) and 5w (906F) are my favourite clubs, aside from my driver, also Titleist 905R. But all old clubs.Smile

I still have my 5W and compliment this with a 22d hybrid. I like 5w because its easy to hit and it gives out a penetrating distance for 170-180m shots. Sometime hybrid shots are too high and in windy conditions, it may not be ideal. My preferences str 5W but only when its on fairways.

Have a 18d 5w in my bag but hardly used. My distance for 5w is about 180m and 19d 3hybrid is about 170-175m. I would usually use my 3hybrid even if it is slightly short due to more consistency. Actually, my 5w and 3hybrid launch equally high, very high indeed. Maybe its my swing. Might consider removing my 5w to free up some space.
