    I'll likely start with a 3W too. Adjustability sounds awesome at that spot. I may also consider a Heavenwood. Pretty cool that they can be adjusted between 19* and 22*. Very versatile.

    I did have a real close call with my 3 wood. The ball was sitting up in the rough and I took a lash at it trying to hit a green from 250 ish.
    Ball hit the green, but some dirt on the ball left a nice battle scar.

    I will second that! I havent had a fairway wood that launched like these. I have had multiple shots where I think, dang that went high. Its definitely going to come up short but then I go to my ball and see that it's a lot farther than I thought it was going to go.

    By far I am not the best at hitting fairway woods especially off the deck. But with these, even when I dont put a good swing on them, Im getting acceptable distance. Then when I do put that good swing on them the ball seems to carry forever.

Thinking of maybe going EF Green 65 5.5 in a the other 2 woods as HZRDUS Yellow 5.5 is not offered by Callaway. I’d imagine the upgrade (HZRDUS Yellow 5.5) would be available from Will @ People’s Golf once the Flash Fairway Adaptor becomes available.

    Dis any of the Grandaddy guys get a Heavenwood?

    I like the new adapter. Smaller and sleeker. Definitely helps transition the club better from shaft to clubhead.

    I figure the same trusted eBay sellers will still be the ones to go to. That, or wait for Billy Bobs golf or whatever to carry it.

    I agree. I've never had an issue with the Callaway adapter in the driver, but it always looked big to me in the fairway and especially the hybrids. This looks much better down by the ball. Plus it's better for CG placement.

    I dont have the SZ in the 3w but do in the 5w but both the std and the SZ seem very easy for me to hit and fairway woods has been something that is hit or miss with me. I had the Steelhead XR 3w and I couldnt hit it great. It went when I got a good clean hit on it off the deck but I think I struggled with the shape of the sole off the deck. The Flash are a lot more easier for me to hit off the deck and I'm getting great distances from them.
