What are you classing as "overly heavy"? Are we talking total weight or head weight? My OO has a swing weight of D6 and it is AWESOME :)

Itís the Head weight Iím referring too.

Itís the Proís and Conís I guess....

Iím wondering if a Heavy fairway head would lead to inconsistency ?

It'll only be inconsistent if it doesn't suit your swing, and there's no way of knowing without testing it......DO IT!

Pretty tough to say. Ping uses heavy heads and high balance point shafts to boost BS and MOI while keeping the balance of the club comfortable. Not sure if this helps you any just mentioning one OEM thatís running heavy heads.

I like heavy heads.  Biggest thing is it would give the shaft a softer flex.

I have been using a 5 wood head on a three wood shaft (standard43 inch length) and using it as a high lofted 3wood.  Very consistent and solved my problems hitting 3 wood off the deck. 5wood heads in general are 10 grams heavier than the 3 wood so this might give you an idea of how heavy heads play. However, my set up involves a higher loft so it generally makes it more forgiving. Not sure if consistency is the same if its just the same loft/head but made heavier.
