3W Search
« on: October 04, 2019, 08:59:13 AM »
A buddy is looking for a 3W.  I'm hopeless with FWs.

What jdm 3W head would you guys recommend?  Forgiveness off the deck is probably more valued than distance off the tee.  No ultra big heads like Ryoma or Maruman pls.

S-Yard XV. It's a smaller compact head. perfect shape to me.

Non jdm, I also use Cleveland 588 3W, it's bigger than XV but it's not huge. Shape is more rounded and face slightly deeper. Pretty forgiving as well.

jBEAM glorious off the tee or Yamaha I.F.F (maybe newer XV too)from the fairway. Some of the Royal Collection stuff is good too.

Royal collection is hardly known for forgivesness.   The glorious is a good suggestion .

i have to second this. the XV is an absolute monster for me. paired with a crazy fw80. its the most consistent club in my bag off the fairway and the tee. not sure what hdcp your friend plays to but for comparison i am a 5 from 7000 yards. irons and woods are my strengths.

You're 5 better than him on your handicap and probably 5 younger than him too LOL.

Art, try the Kamui TP-XF. Really good. Easy off the deck but also good off the tee. Full Ti Head which makes it fast.

>>Royal collection is hardly known for forgivesness.   
True for most of them.  One exception is the 2013 Ti SFD 3w(190cc) and 5w(184cc).
Large cc but plays decent, good forgiveness.  Wouldn't be my top choice though.

I just picked up an older Kamui TP-05 FW 3W.  455 face. 
Large cc(185) but plays like medium with semi-shallow face.
First round with it was great.  Liked the feel.

My reason for looking further was, like you said, the RC Ti 306v is below average
forgiveness.   Very long though and good feel.  I'm also looking to replace the
SFD 18 5W, as I prefer a lower flight.  Might try the TP-05 5W though.
