Adjustable drivers and fairway woods, on the cheap?

9 posts in this topic

Hi all, I'm looking for a driver and fairway wood, which I can find used, that is adjustable. More specifically, I'm looking for lie angle adjustability. I'm relatively tall (6'4"), and all of my irons are 3* upright, but my driver and 3 wood are both standard. It's not as much of an issue for the driver, but the fairway wood results in only a small contact area with the ground because the heel is in the air.I was looking at last year's STR-8 fits, but are there any other options that you can think of? Thanks in advance!

Depends on how "cheap" you are looking for.  I was assume the TaylorMade R9 driver would be your best bet to start looking because they are the first adjustable drivers that were on the market.

Adjustable drivers only open/close the club-face and change the face angle and loft........

My 2 cents......go to a nice pro-shop where you'll find knowledgeable staff.  I'm sure you can special order a 3-wood with an upright lie angle?  Please let us know what you find out.....

Go to ebay -- search R11 or R11 Ti (for a Titanium Fairway)

Lie angle is DIFFERENT...........Driver and 3-woods like the R11 adjust face angle and loft..........

Guys and Gals, Lie angle is a completely different spec.......

Actually, Titleist's 910 series, Nike's STR8-Fit, and Srixon's STAR Fit all adjust lie angle as well. I think the Nike line is going to be the most affordable from what I can find on ebay. I just thought you guys might have known of another, maybe lesser known, model line that I was overlooking. Thanks.

Brand new VR Pro STR8-FITs can be had on eBay for pretty good prices from reputable sellers.  I just bought a new VR Pro driver (2011 model) for $140.
