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 ground.

 

- 18 deg (5 wood).  Immediately became my favorite club.  This is the easiest fairway club I've ever hit, even easier than a hybrid.  It performs extremely well out of the rough and off the fairway.  I never hesitate to grab this club.  The only trouble I've had with it is it tends to hit the ball too far!
