2013? Adams new tight lies fairway wood. - Marv

Good start. I've seen these second-generation Tight Lies for $29.  (First version came in late 1990s). Most popular model is 16*.

Callaway Preowned has some Hawkeye Titanium and Warbird FWs from circa 2000 for under $50. I stumbled upon 3-5-7-9 woods in Hawkeye, bought them for heritage purposes, and can say they fly pretty good.(I play Calla 815 Alpha FWs from 2015). 

Callaway X FWs (2008) cost under $50; you'll have to hunt the used club bins, and the shaft was a bit heavy, but give 'em a try if the store has some sort of return policy.

The Tour Edge XRails and Exotics FWs a few years old can be had for under $100 (originally $250+), but under $50 is hard to find unless they're really beat up. I played two different TE FW set-ups since 2002.

Thanks Everyone. I saw on RBG that they have Adam's 3 woods brand new for $30 on there clearance. What's best choice between the Adam's Blue, Adam's Speedline Super S, and Adam's Tight lies? I'm a lefty that tends to shoot a slight fade.

I just sold my Titleist 915 3 wood for $50. It wasnt new and showed it, but the club still worked great. If you're talking about brand new clubs, cant go wrong with Adams.

My Callaway BB Steelhead III will only be pulled from my cold, dead hands. ;-)  Has been my go-to/money club for a long time; easy to hit, easy to shape, and hits air-boring missiles that rival some of my drives.  $29 from Callaway Pre-owned, and in the $16-$18 range used elsewhere.

My EX9 3-wood... Just kidding

As @WUTiger said in a previous post, you can't go wrong with Adams, however, If you don't mind 2 year old clubs RockBottomGolf has The :touredge: Exotics E8 and E8 Beta for around $50 or so... And those fairways are actually very very good.

P.S. and off topic @iacas, would you please try to find a way to shortcut the Exotics logo?

I haven't hit the Blue but bagged the Tight Lies last year, sold it on eBay and bought the super S for this year new for cheap. They might be good for you if you naturally fade it cuz for me BOTH of them tend to hook more than any other club in my bag. I will also add that the Tight Lies is better for off the deck, the Super S is better off the tee.

I liked the new Tight Lies because of its shallow face like a hybrid and the Bassara shaft. But I don't know about the Blue or Super S. Suggest checking out MyGolfSpy for reviews and tests. Yes, there is a little offset and hook tendency. But I moved the ball forward and got that under control. -Marv

Yea I don't have a high SS (90-95) but I DO have a quick transition and I think that worked against me with the Bassara. The stiff flex felt very much like regular.

    • I've been Playing Golf for: 9 years
      My current handicap index or average score is: 21
      My typical ball flight is: I wish there was typical? My usual miss is either a very strong pull or a weak push. I am hitting a 7 iron, it typically flies 155ish and when I pull it goes 170 and when I push it goes 140
      The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: I'd love a consistent miss rather than being all over the place I bit more: I started playing 9 years ago, played a decent amount until having kids and was "ok" in that I'd shoot high 80s regularly and my handicap was 16. Barely played after having 2 kids quickly and then last spring got back to swinging and playing more and now I find myself with the time to be able to concentrate fully. I want to build a good swing from the ground up, so I'm willing to start with the most basic of things to get to a good repeatable swing. I plan on creating an evovlr account soon and going that route, but I want a place to publicly document my progression and to hear what others have to say. Sorry that this angle isn't the best, I plan on going to a different range this week to get a better DTL view and a good face on. Please be brutally honest, I can take it.  Videos:   
    • Your approach to a shot like this totally depends on the type of course you are playing. Here in Southern California, a lot of our grass is kikiyu, which is not nearly as friendly to "bump and run" type plays as the harder links style courses in Europe. The grass is softer, hairier and has a greater tendency to "grab" or kick balls off line. Most of the time, I'll play my pitches or chips to land on the green, even if I have to flight the ball a bit higher. Which of course, works better with a premium ball. That being said, I do agree with your general premise. The impact of the ball on most amateurs' final scores is minimal at best. A good ball striking day with a Pinnacle is going to be much better than a mediocre day with a Pro-V. I really don't think the ROI is there for amateur golfers to spend $40+ on a dozen golf balls, but hey, who am I to tell people how to spend their money? 
    • This is pretty much spot on for my situations.   Agree, and probably not necessary to have a high spin ball, but anything helps even if only "mental".   Same here. If my putting were one of my strengths, I think I'd do the bump and run a lot more, but it currently is not.
    • I achieved this in our men's club tournament this weekend. I had 3 birdies, all of which came on par 5's and no doubles on any other holes.   Even with a relatively solid / penalty-free round, I still had to make two 5-6 footers to salvage 5's, including one on the last hole of the day. It's a tough challenge - for all of us except the super lower handicappers, we hit enough loose shots in a given round that it's relatively easy for a single hole to go off the rails.  Final score on the round was a 76. 3 birdies, 7 bogeys, 8 pars.
