    Possibly. I need to rethink some things now. But it will get a chance.

    Not sure if I need one, but it's quite interesting. I messed around with the Big Bertha Mini but it never really clicked for me.

    But can it be hit from a divot like the one on TV?

    I like this a lot... at address appears fantastic imo. Would be extremely curious to see if it works at all off the deck; my game has deteriorated in most areas, but do think I can hit my 4w off the deck decently. Plus I've been thinking of changing my setup to have something a little less spinny into the wind. Conditions have changed around here and wind is playing a major factor, so can easily see something like this working really well.

    I am one that needs the flexibility of a 3 wood off the deck. Successfully hit the Bertha Mini 1.5 14* off the deck so why not this lofted up 2 degrees. I am intrigued and look forward to the reviews.

    I'm interested as someone who played the SLDR mini, the Aeroburner mini, and the Bertha mini 1.5. Then again, maybe I just need to learn to hit my darn driver..

    The one club I'll never trade in again - the TM SDLR Mini - I have one at 14* and quite honestly, I should probably play it more.
    There are several course I play that are shorter and tight - Bagging a Mini would keep me from taking out the driver.
    Be interested in the reviews here....

    I like this a lot. In a recent thread here, there was a poll asking people to identify the purpose of their 3 wood. There was a significant percentage that stated the singular use was as a tee club. Nice writeup, @JB. Like you, there are others who would only use a 3 wood off the tee. This club could be extremely beneficial to that targeted group. The head looks fantastic.

    The last ne gathering i went to we played that first course the was tight off the tee, I hit mini all day and said to bcape that it was days like that that make me wonder why I ever hit driver. I was just in control of my golf ball off the tee, which you know has not exactly been my strength in recent years.

    Originally I didn't think this would be something I'd be interested in but the more I think about it I use my 3 wood primarily of the tee so it could make sense. That price point though keeps the 3 wood in the bag.
