2016 M2 T3 Deep Face Fairway
« on: May 20, 2017, 11:16:34 PM »
I have fully came to grips with the fact that hitting fairways into long par 5s is almost always worse for me than laying up to the ~100 and firing a full sand wedge into the pin.

I picked up one of the tour issue T3 M2 deep face fairways from Will Peoples with the HZRDUS red 75 stiff and had him hot melt it to bring to D3 at 43". Head is compact and sits a slight bit open. Mine is 14.1 actual loft. Face is very deep.

The first day I hit it at the range it was cold and rainy, I was all bundled up and I really struggled to hit it, so I was a little discouraged. But ever since then I've been absolutely striping it.

It feels extremely solid yet hot and it's as long as many drivers have been for me in the past, or about 15 yards shorter than the new M1 440 I've been playing. I'd wager it is actually longer than say my Ryoma V spec driver was.

I can hit it well from a decent fairway lie, trajectory is mid. Nicked a branch on my tee shot on the closing hole Thursday in league and left myself 245 to the front of green without much trouble around as long as I carried the creek at 215 or so. Hit it solid but missed green a bit right, ended up pin high and got up and down for par. The compact nature of the club doesn't lend itself to a lot of toe and heel side forgiveness, but it's not terrible in that regard.

It's a very penetrating flight with low spin and seems to be well suited as a tee club for tighter holes, but is still usable off the deck when need be. Need to be somewhere around the middle of the face to make it sing, but she's an absolute cannon when hit well.

Hey MBBG i was looking to get one of that. Was wondering how forgiving is it? I am thinking of getting it specifically for tee-ing off

Im playing a 2016 Taylormade deep face 15 degree and the face is indeed deep, it reminds me a bit of the old Nike T30 fairway woods.  The club makes an amazing thwack sound when middled.  It launches low and hot, i hit mostly bullets with mine but it it is an amazing club if you are a good ball striker.  i carry this 3 wood and a 4 wood which hits high floating bombs. This club is long and it has very very high speeds on trackman !!!  I can get 154 ball speed with my driver and about 149 with my 3 wood.

It is not super forgiving but very playable for decent ball strikers.....if u hit the ball horribly or have a hard time elevating fairway woods, this will not be a good fit.

Still bagging this. I need to tip the shaft some as it's a little loose as-is. Awesome off the tee and I don't have any issues from decent fairway lies or from rough. Very low spinning and long.

I want to try one with the HZRDUS T1100 shaft, should be a bomber.
