    3 Wood - which has the biggest head?

    For all of you equipment junkies, I have a question. Yesterday my 3 Wood let me down again - I like my Callaway 3W when it is on, but it seems to be off more than it is on, and with 2 swings yesterday probably cost me 3-4 shots in my round of 75. I want one I can trust, and I have it in my head that I would like one with a bit larger head, or even with a titanium head.

    So, name me the brands and models of 3W with the largest heads, and let me follow up with a little study.....
    Driver : Big Bertha Titanium 454 10* Stiff True Temper Dynamic Gold Graphite shaft
    3 Wood : Big Bertha 2004 15* Rifle 6.5 shaft
    3 Hybrid : Heavenwood 3H 20* Rifle 6.5 shaft
    Irons : 4 - LW X-18 Pro Series Rifle 6.0 2* flat
    Putter : White Hot Tour #2
    Ball : Penta

    check out the ping g15 as well sam! i've long been a fan of the callaway 3w's but imo, there's just better stuff out there right now, at least as far as forgiveness goes.

    The cobra line also is pretty big as well, not so much the first speed series but the S2's and the S9 series are big. I just looked at one today.

    Just wondering. Are you looking for a 3 wood with a large HEAD or a large FACE?
