Sonartec is also well regarded and was also a leader in the push toward hybrids. Their 3 woods are generally low profile and feature the Sonartec driving cavity on the sole. They are more of a "players" fairway wood.

So is one of your 3 woods looking for a new home? I was looking at the G10 4 wood with a 17 deg loft as I think its a nice balance from 12 deg driver to my 3 iron, but I've never hit one!

G10 also nice clubs... My non-gamer is the Adams A3, it is 15 degree with 42" shaft so will play more like a 4 wood anyways. I haven't had enough time with the A3 in practice rounds to decide whether it was going to boot my Adams BUL out of the bag. But if someone wanted to buy it I probably wouldn't stop them :)

I am planning on taking a G10 3 or 4 (or even 5) out this week for 9 holes so will see how that feels....so it looks like my Lind hybrids are on borrowed time!

Walrus I have an Adams tight lie 3 wood (and 5) that i don't use, my mate is carrying it. It is shallow and offset. Purchased some time ago but easy to launch. It is the adilia shaft. It took my h/cap from 23 to 16. Easy to hit off the deck,just don't swing fast. I never used it off the T You interested? Kiwi

Walrus Thats fine mate, i have upgraded and don't use any more. The "tight lies" moniker was it's model name "Offset" in any club makes it easy for mid to high h/cappers to hit. "shallow" means the head is about only 25-30mm thick. Bit like a 5 burner (which i now use) Has head cover too. wall call my mate to find out loft, would be 18deg maybe. stay tuned kiwi

OK Mate Had a quick look online and they made a 3 wood with a 15 deg loft, could it be that one? I guess 15 deg is most common. My driver is offset and seems to help me a lot. Funny but I looked at a burner 3 wood today in the pro shop for $150 that looked quite nice! But need to keep my spending down so yours might be a good option....let me know
