Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from kcd38 who opens the discussion regarding WRXers approach to choosing a 3-wood. Our members discuss what they want from a 3-wood and how their driver often plays a pivotal role in deciding what they need and want from their 3-metal.
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.
- HappyGilmore22: “I bought a 3-wood based on whichever low spin combo I could get the best value out of because I’ve tested ten 3-woods and can’t decide between any of them. Went with TS3 and stock shaft in an 80-gram weight class with x-flex, added bonus they fit for the proper swing weight I like. The M5 was my favorite, but with the correct shaft and specs it would have run me over $700, and I wasn’t about to be paying that for a 3-wood that I rarely hit when my $300 one is just as good.
- Yuck: “3-woods are tough to get one you like under all conditions. I have had 3 of them over the last 40+ years. A Macgregor persimmon from the late 70s till early 90’s. A TM burner bubble tour spoon from the early 90, till 2004. And a TEE CB 2, still in my bag for the last 15 years.”
- RichieHunt: “I go to a fitter that has a lot of club head options. I find it difficult to get a good 3-wood because they are not easy to hit well and they usually either go long, but suck to hit off the deck, or they hit off the deck well, but don’t go as long as I would like. So that’s why I try to get as many head options as I can to find the best one for me. Then I go to Fujikura and get fitted for a shaft. I also find that 3-wood heads wear down much more quickly than driver heads. So you finally get a head you like and after a short while it’s not performing like it once did, and the new model heads come in.”
- AG12: “I’ve found for me that when trying to find the right amount of spin and height I got with a mid-low launch/low spin shaft in the brand’s more forgiving head if they have two (M4 over M3, TS2 over TS3, Flash over Sub Zero) and it seems to be a good recipe for launch, forgiveness and stopping power.”
