Yep..I have always had trouble with a normal 3 w especially off the deck, so I went with a 17 deg 4 w for some distance and 7 and 9 woods..
Love my 9 wood by the way..Hits high and lands soft..but not always LOL.
We can get these over here in Aus although not a gr8 variety.
Sun Mountain are going to be avail here soon and i love the hybrid stand bag.
Alas, maybe out of your price range but looks the ducks nuts. Worth...
