Looking for a 3 wood...... - Page 2

post #19 of 41
Sure. Pros. The Cobra Bio has the best aesthetics in my option and very hot off the face and the ball takes off. The X Hot is a good looking club but does have some minor graphics on he head. It had the best feel of all the clubs and felt like you were controlling the ball not other way around. The SLDR had a junky feel to it and I personally felt that my tempo was never in rhythm. The Jetspeed has a nice look to it also and you can really get after the ball with it because it felt light to me. Ball came off the face like a spring board.

So was the X 2 Hot more forgiving on off center hits as advertised?
post #21 of 41
I would have to say yes. Every hit felt great and took off he face. Even when less than great swing. Now I was only hitting in a bay with a net a few feet in front but I was able to feel confident hitting it. Past 3 woods you can tell you hit it poor. Not one shot felt that way.

Thanks I'm going to be looking for a new driver once I'm not shoveling snow. That's one on my list of clubs to hit so I appreciate the info.

No problem. I just picked up a driver for next season. Got a used R1 black for $89. It had the SLDR shaft in a 65 stiff. Odd but hit really well. The new drivers coming are really nice also. I hit them today for no real reason. I bought a Ping G20 3 wood same day as R1. The shaft was not the standard either and made the club perform better. Check out different shafts if you can before making a decision.

I'm not in the market for a driver but I had time to kill so I hit some with the Xhot 2 today. I'm not a big callaway guy, but I really liked this driver. I was hitting a 9 degree with the stock stiff shaft. It was pretty long, very forgiving, and gave me the ball flight I prefer (mid trajectory draw) if I was looking for a driver this would be near the top of the list.

Thank you Dables. Did you give the X 2 Hot pro a try? From I read it has a smaller had and a different shaft. I think it also only comes in 8.5 only.

The Callaway Big Bertha comes out s oon. Would be curious how that stacks up to the X Hot 2

I didn't get to hit that, as I'm a lefty so I often don't get to hit everything. I will say that what I did hit had an absolutely massive head. Almost too big for me, but likely why it's so forgiving

I'm using a adams speedline super ls fairway wood in 15 degrees and I get a lot height out of it. I like the smaller head and heavier (70gr) shaft. I was going to buy the S model but I was getting a little to much height out of that model. they have the slot on top that made the ball jump up even on balls struck low on the face.

The Callaway X Hot 3 deep has a fade bias and may be what you are looking for. I have one in the 14.5 and it is an absolute bomber!

I think that the exotics have a slightly hotter face but I'm not sure. Those 2 are neck and neck

Lol I am too. I have a 3 wood from both brands and love them both. My 3 deep though is not for everyone...

I spent 2012 with TM Rocketbalz FWs, and dumped them the following year.

 

I played Callaway in the past, but went with Tour Edge Exotics XRail, basically an SGI fairway wood. My 4W and 7W are much more reliable than the RBZ.

 

If I got to where I was breaking 90 regularly, I might upgrade to the regular TE Exotics, or something from the XHot or X2Hot family.
