PostSubject: Best 3W you have been playing.......   Tue Jul 29, 2014 12:20 pm

Looking for feedback and info sharing on 3W. 

Played 913, 910, R9, RBZ, R11, G10 - all not to my liking.
Have been playing 909F2 for a year
Recently tried R5, Burner TP; love the sole but too much offset for my eyes.

What 3W have you played; your best choice and why. Thx.

Tour issue burner version 2 fairway woods! Depending on spec most have square to open clubface! 

Have mine in kajiki 80 shafts and they are perfect of fairway and tee.

I am using Ping Anser FW 16.5... one word for it... Awesome!
I have not tried the 913F... but I tried the 913 hybrid... and IMHO...I felt that the Anser FW is way more forgiving than the 913H...

The new PRGR Egg 3W is highly recommended, easy to launch, forgiving and straight if you can accept the shape.

Ryoma F2/F3 will give u one of the longest distance if do not mind the price and the metallic sound.

You may want to consider 5W instead. Easier to launch and not much distance loss. The higher launch also means that you can attack the green for long par 4 or short par 5.

I usually use a softer flex for my FW as compared to the driver as I tend to swing slower for FW.

If you can share your budget, I am sure fellow golfers here can provide you better advice.

rbz stage 2 regular flex asian spec amazingly forgiving n long. off the tee only 10 ish m shorter than my average  driver Rbz stage 2, global spec shaft.

just switch to xhot pro 15 degree , ad mt-6 shaft stiff, a few  more boo boo here n there than Rbz cos the pro is a little smaller n less forgiving . but overall it is longer n straighter ( more predictable)  when  hit i it well( when i control my back swing !) . so sticking with it !

My Current 3 wood is the 15* Nike Vr Pro with Diamana Ahina.


Tried many like the RBZ, Stage 2, Xhot, X2hot, Burner superfast, etc  but all just can't compare to the the feel and control of this Nike, rather surprisingly.

I use to play the Taylormade Burner Superfast 3 wood and absolutely LOVED that thing..... until it broke on me...

Now playing the RBZ Stage 1 (stock stiff shaft) and it is a beast.... a bit of time to adjust, but have learned to love it and is one of the most consistent clubs in the bag this year Smile

Agreed. I tried 3w for a couple of years. Switched to the Cally RFX 5w about 3 mths back and have no desire to change now.

tried 910f, 913fd, cleveland FL, Yamaha Inpres X, TM Vsteel, G20.

In my opinion, Yamaha is the easiest to play & I think its because of the shaft. Yesterday traded my 913fd with Prgr Egg Spoon (always wanted to try this) and went to the range... need some time to get used to the weight before deciding whether it is my "best" 3fw...

The 3W is important for me as I am a short hitter. I need it both off the deck and off the tee for long par 3s and when driver is not working. 

I used Maruman Shuttle, Taylormade Burner Superfast, Taylormade RBZ and now Callaway xHot in that order. I must say the xHot is the best 3W I have had. It is long and easy to launch. Of course, it might be because I was fitted for it and also, over time my swing has also become a little more consistent than before  Very Happy

Yes, I am! I am using the old Cobra S3 FW3 & 5 ... Fantastic penetrating trajectory ... These two FWs could be long if I can achieve a sweet connection ...  Cobra Smiley Cobra Smiley
