Tried a bunch of 3Ws today
« on: March 12, 2017, 12:02:22 AM »
Went to a local shop to try the JPX 900 3W ... ended up trying a bunch of other 3 woods too.

Mizzy JPX 900
Cally Epic
Ping G
Cobra F7
Cally XR16
'16 M2
'17 M2
 
I did not try any of the "tour"  models  with the smaller heads since I look for forgiveness in a 3 wood.
Medium size shallow profile is what I prefer.   
 
So other than the pair of M2's   all the fairway flew about 225 yards carry which is no different than what I get from my Ping G20 3W.
Nothing exciting there.

Enter the M2 fairways...   What the heck!   Every shot was getting to about 245 carry ..  longest one rolled to 260+ yards! 

'17 M2 looks slightly larger and a bit more forgiving than '16 model.    Performance was about the same.

Really got me thinking about getting one of these!!

Yep.   stock everything.
Read some reviews on wrx site,   I see some saying that King LTD 3W is as long or longer... but with better feel.
Anyone have similar feedback?

Just a bit shocked about the performance difference I saw compared to others.

Got  to try the LTD Pro 3 wood yesterday side by side a 2017 M2 fairway.
LTD Pro was not as forgiving for me and bit shorter distance wise for me.

I am still not sure if I want the M2....not a huge fan of the 2 tone black and white color.
Feel is on the harder side compared to other fairways. 

Hmmm...

If you do go for the TM, get the white strip blacked out. I've seen a driver with the white done in matte black and it looked very good.

Had the M1 3w HL in play the last 2 rounds including today. Have you tried it Nob?. I've been using it from the tee only (no driver), and it is awesome. On par, if not better than, a Yamaha XV FW 14. I had it turned 1 notch down on the loft and the weight 1 notch towards fade position.

Boooooomed some big tee shots today. Seriously a couple were further than I've been with a driver on those holes. 495yd par 5 and I'm 300 off the tee (wind assisted). I kid you not. 6i in to the green through the back. Fantastic stuff. The Attas 6 should also get a mention. Great feel as always from Attas.

I can believe that.  M1 and M2 3w are freakishly long.
