Thinking about a 4 fairway wood instead or 3/5. yes/no? Which one?

post #1 of 7

I have trouble hitting the 3 off the deck, but do like my 5 wood.I am thinking about switching to a 4 fairway wood instead of 3 and 5 as previously discussed here a while back. 

 

Has anyone changed to that strategy? Have you stayed with it, or switched back?

 

Can you recommend a game improvement 4 wood you're happy with? I like my Ping G-15 driver, so would look at the Pings, and am also interested in the Rocketballz clubs. Any suggestions are appreciated.

 

Thanks to all.

I thought about going to the four, but have settled on the following:

Nike Covert 13* 3 W reg......190-200
Nike VR Pro 21* 3H 175- 185
Nike VRPro 24* 4H 165 - 175
Nike Covert 26* 5H 158 - 165


So I am going without the 5W, as I can really be more accurate with the Hybrids.

I only carry a Ping driver and a Ping 4 wood, rest is irons cause I can hit them ok.

 

I love the 4 wood and think it's the best decision I made. I can hit it long and straight when a driver means too much risk.

Thanks for the replies.

 

To answer WUTiger, the reason I didn't join the other threads is because I'm a lazy, self centered ass...Actually, I did look but didn't do a good enough search and missed most of them.  Thanks for the links.

I use the 3 with a nice smooth easy swing. Point it in the right direction and relax your grip. Imagine your on the beach with no worries and put it right on the green. Zen golf. Lol

Artimas,

 

Didn't mean to come down so hard on my first reply.

 

I went with a 3W +  { 5W or 19* TM Raylor) for about three years. I was having trouble getting 3W airborne enough if I had an uphill shot, so I reorganized.

 

Last season, I switched to an RBZ 3W.HL (4W in other kingdoms), a 7W, and a 4H. Had a lot of trouble with hooks from RBZ, so I swapped them out for a Tour Edge Exotics XRail 4W and 7W, and an Adams V4 4H. New combination works great.

 

Here's a review I did on XRail 4 + 7. It also talks about 4Ws in general.
