Taylormade V-Steel

7 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

I have quite a gap between my 3 iron (cobra carbon cb stiff steel )and my 3 wood, so I'm thinking of putting a 5 wood or hybrid in my bag.
Normally I was about to buy a 5 wood but my 3 wood is a TM V-Steel 15° Stiff graph (which i LOVE and will keep in my bag for a while) and I'm afraid I'll hit a new 5 wood (burner or whatever) as far as my 3 wood.

I tried to get a v-steel 5 wood but they dont make them anymoreand I don't know where to get one so...
What do you guys think? maybe a 19° burner resque stiff? ( steel or graph i dno)

Thanks!

True but I live in Belgium, Europe so +35$ shipping costs and import taxes from the States for a second hands Vsteel would bother me.

*EDIT* I didn't read your edit yet, thanks, I'll check it out.

I still have my 3W V-Steel in my bag...and it won't come out. And I am lucky enough to have recognized the value of the club and purchased a 5W that I keep in storage just in case I want it or if the course strategy demands it to be placed in the bag.

I normally in my bag have my 3W V-Steel and carry a 19* 3 hybrid. The 19* hybrid length is very similar to my 5W flight. And what makes it more valuable is that it has a little more versatility. Great out of trouble/rough. Great when you want the ball to bite more on the greens.

My vote...go with the 19* hybrid. If it doesnt' suite your game...then go look for a used V-Steel on ebay.

Gosh...I still love my V-Steel.

keep your eye on ebay... there are still the occasional new v-steel getting listed. Check the US and UK sites - UK would be cheaper postage to you I would guess.

Your other option is to go with a 5 wood that has a 'standard' length shaft - the new burners are longer to generate more clubhead speed, and send the ball further. This was a consideration when I was looking for my 3; I didn't want one that was close to the distance of my driver, and bridged the gap between 5 wood and driver.

But, a hybrid may be an idea - something around 18 degrees such as Callaway X or Cobra Baffler Pro

Thanks a lot for your opinions

yeah I was just looking at this one

    • Number 10. Boise, Idaho Saturday 06/24/2017. I played Quail Hollow golf Club, white tees 5727 yards. This is visually the best course I've played to date. It's built into the hills which allows for many elevated holes. The views at the top are fantastic and challenging. Yes, its short in yardage but difficult to play. There are many blind shots over hills and around corners, plus sagebrush, trees, thick rough and water. The greens vary in size from very large, to small and narrow, but they were fast and difficult to putt. I should have brought two putters, a lighter putter for the fast greens and a heavy putter for the slow greens. I only have my heavy putter. I played with three guys, the Boise guys, who were part a larger money group. I was asked which course was my favorite, and prior to playing this course, I didn't have one. Whenever I think about the places that I've gone, it's the people that I remember. We can all relate to the challenges of golf and tend to be our true selfs on the golf course. Today was no different, a lot of laughs, frustration and camaraderie. I think one of the best moments we had was when one of the Boise guys drove the green on a par 4 and 4-putted from about 12 feet. He hit a great drive over trees that blocked the green from our view. We were all happy to see his ball on the green for an eagle putt. We had all struggled with the putts, but we thought he would at least get a birdie, which would help their team score. I know he was disappointed when he 4-putted and we understand, but it was also so funny I asked him if he could replay the hole and do the same thing so that I could record it. We all had a big laugh, and that's the bond that we golfers have. I shot 49 on the front and 45 on the back, with an 8 on a par 3 and par 4, total 94.   
    • I haven't heard a pro credit PB for a win. But this guy credits the PB Pro with the win, implying and sometimes stating that PB helped him.
    • This local rule is used primarily in the UK on links courses where putting from long distances off the green is the norm. IMO it should only be used if chipping over is not a reasonable proposition.
    • (https://thesandtrap.com/forums/topic/94053-win-a-new-cart-from-sun-mountain) https://shop.sunmountain.com/Speed-Cart-GT-20119-detail.html I'd love to win the Speed Cart GT in Navy White Red. I like the patriotic colors.  This cart not only looks great, but it would make life so much easier.  Believe it or not, my current golf cart is actually a "pull cart".  Yes, the old fashioned kind that you just don't see anymore, but I still use it. Thus, I'd love to win a new Speed Cart GT in Navy White Red from @SunMountainGolf and @the_sand_trap.   I thank you, my sore shoulder thanks you, and my aching back thanks you :)
