Looking for a new fairway wood, getting tired of my old burner 07 3 wood. After I hit my friend's R9 fairway wood which had a smaller head, I'm in the market for older and cheaper models but still good overall. I searched and came up with either TM V steel or the 906F2. Both are pretty cheap on ebay but unfortunately I can't try these out before I buy them. Seems to me these 2 fairway woods have smaller heads than my burner wood and has better workability. I still see these 2 fairway woods gamed by pros, friends, and random people I pair up with when I go hit 18. Wanted to get some feedback on these 2 fairway woods from people that have hit them or owned them or better yet still game them in their bags.

Thanks

I've played a 906F2 3 wood for a couple years now. I've considered buying a backup. For me, it's longer and straighter off the tee than any other 3 wood I've ever hit. And it's definitely workable. There are easier clubs to get up in the air from the fairway, but that doesn't seem like it should be a concern for you. I hit the 909Fs (and play a 909D2), but there was something missing for me.

That's great to hear, I actually found a 906F2 with a proforce V2 85X which is PERFECT for me. What can I say, I've been turned a titleist junky after I bought the 909D3.

I've hit the 909F2 and I liked it alot, but I was looking for a bargain on a 3 wood. The problem with my burner 3 wood is that it launches too high and I lose some distance with it. After I hit my friend's fairway wood, it was going alot farther than my burner(his R9 was set on neutral) So since you said it's not the easiest wood to get up in the air from the fairway, perfect for me because I need the trajectory to lower for my 3 wood.

Penta- you might want to look at the 906f4 as well. These have a shallower face, and are a lot more easy to get into the air off the fairway and rough. As far as the 906 vs. vsteel goes they are both great 3 woods, but it seems like the Titleist is probably the way to go.

    • Words are precision instruments....and misquoting blunts them. “I see players come to a tournament and say: ‘Oh, this golf course doesn’t fit my game.’ Hello! The golf course isn’t supposed to fit your game, you’re supposed to fit your game to the golf course. You always have to fit your game to the golf course, so that’s the fun of it, learning how to do that.” J. Nicklaus That has a very different meaning to "your game needs to suit all different course setups."
    • Tough call unless you don’t like the Diablo.  I’ve hit both, Titleist was meh… not impressed.  The Callaway was miles better.  I hit it fairly straight anyway and was amazed how far the Octane went for an older driver.  This was maybe 3 weeks ago too.  The Octane was just as far if not farther than my Ping G400max.
    • I've never been into autographs, so this doesn't interest me, but I can see some people thinking it's cool and unique.  Seems smart of Tiger and Bryson to try it.  
    • As Vinsk mentioned, do you know your swing speed or even better ball speed? The cheapest way to experiment would be to simply extend out the current shaft 1 1/2 inches. Although this is more than I ideally like to extend a club, I think in your case it would be without issues. This would cost you all of $17 more or less for the extension and a new grip. If you would rather go the new shaft route, I would drop into the lower 50g weight class to build to 47inch or whatever you want to try. Probably would also want something more butt weighted. That Riptide comes in a CB model at 50g which wouldn't be too expensive. I think you can find them for under $80.
    • Well, I'm going to have to go against the consensus here.  Unless you know for virtual certainty that you ball crossed into the penalty area ask yourself this.  Is there a possibility that your ball could be lost outside the penalty area?  IF so then you would need to act accordingly.  Back to the tee or if E 5 was in effect then out to the fairway and add 2 strokes.
