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

Best score: 73 on a "real" course.  Have had a 70 and a 71 on short courses with ratings in the high 60's, I don't count those. Favorite club in the bag: Don't really have one, but since it's the only one that will never need replacing, I'll go with my putter. Golf books / DVD's, etc, that helped you so far: Jack Nicklaus' Golf My Way, Harvey Penick's Little Red Book, Lowest Score Wins. Where do you play: Tijeras Creek (home course), Mile Square Park, many other courses in a 30 mile radius, and Belmont Country Club when I visit the family up north. Best courses you've played so far: Torrey Pines (North and South), Pelican Hill (North and South), Kapalua (Bay and Plantation) Things you enjoy most about golf: The outdoors, the challenge, playing with friends.  (copied and pasted the format from @Hatchman, and am leaving this answer verbatim because it's perfect.)

    • Not I, unfortunately. And fortunately, too, because… May sucks mostly for that. I'll be gone the whole middle.
    • Happy birthday Erik I'm enjoying a very good stout in your honor.
