Great 3 Wood

Posted

Pros: Traditional stype head, Great ball flight, and pleasing to the ear.

Cons: Isn't as long as some other "driver" type 3 woods - but who needs that?!

Callaway Diablo Octane 3 Wood Tour w/ Diamana White Board Stiff Shaft:  I received this 3 wood for Christmas last year and quickly changed the shaft in it to match my driver.  The head of the golf club is very much traditional and the face is shallow enough to be able to hit it off the fairway as well.  I gave it 4.5 stars for the performance because it doesn't have that driver length like some of the other deeper face 3 woods out there, but that's fine with as I am not looking for my 3 wood to go further than my driver.  The sound is perfect and trajectory of the ball is ideal.    Anyone looking for an all around traditional looking 3 wood that's going...

Pros: Traditional set-up, all black head

The 15 degree set up perfectly for me  on the launch monitor in the store with a 240 carry.  The 13 degree gave me 10 more yards but launched a little flatter.  I went with the 15 knowing that the 13 may be a little sketchy from a tight lie.  On the course the 15 proved to give me the monitor showed as I hit tee shots anywhere from 240-260.  From the fairway I achieved similar results hitting it 240-250 total.  The shaft happens to a good match for me in the stiff and frequencies out where I needed it to be more consistent (similar distance) than the previous Tour X with the Tourplatform 26.3 stiff that was more of an X.

Pros: Small heads, great ball flight. 18 deg is very forgiving

Cons: 13 deg very hard to hit off the ground

I bought these because they went with the driver (I'm picky that way).  Like the tour driver, these have smaller heads and the top of the head is pure black.  Simply put, these are gorgeous clubs.   I used to play 1, 2, and 4 woods, so I chose the 13 deg strong 3 and the 18 degree.   - 13 deg (strong 3).  It took me a bit of work to get comfortable with this club, but now it is the most reliable club in my bag off the tee.  It produces a beautiful flight with a moderate trajectory and rolls for days with a little draw.  That being said, I cannot seem to hit it off the deck at all.  This is a great 2nd or short driver but no help off the...
