Which fairway wood is best for you?

Aside from that there are numerous differences in technology and inner construction, and as such golfers should try out different fairway woods before deciding on the right one.
Those looking for added distance will appreciate the Callaway Rogue ST Max, while maximum forgiveness can be found in the Taylormade Stealth.
