I've always been told that if I can't hit the driver that I should get a 3 wood. So recently I went to get one but found a Cleveland DST 17 degree 4 wood that I hit better and farther than any 3 wood. Any one else have luck with a 4wood instead of the 3 wood? Shouldn't I be hitting the 3 farther?
Anyone carry a 4 wood in the bag?

I don't carry one but my wife does. She had real problems getting any air under the ball, even off a tee. We recently got her a 13.5* driver, and the extra height fixed her distance on drives. Since she had the same problem multiplied off the deck with a 15* 3-wood, we got her a 17* 4-wood to replace it. She has been having real good luck with the 4..
When it was the only club I had between my driver and 3 iron, I had a 4 wood and I loved it. When I added a 19* hybrid, I was able to replace the 4 wood with a 15* 3 wood.
On paper, 3 woods go further than 4 woods, but the only one that I would find really odd is if you were hitting the Cleveland DST 3 wood (with the equivalent shaft) shorter than this one. Either way, its not relevant ... you hit this one great and thats all that really matters.
What length shaft is on that 4w?
I am only 5' 4" and always looking for "shorter" clubs. Especially since I have to shorten them anyway.
So far the shortest 4w in stock length I have found is the TM r11 4w which is 42.5".
I built it to 42". Also just answered your PM.
I carry a 4 wood in my bag at all times. On my vacation in Hilton Head I was doing horrible with my driver since I hadn't played in a long time so I switched to my 4 wood for tee shots. It has never done me wrong and every shot went dead straight. I know it's just a mental thing for me, but I love mine
