  1. Unas maderas fáciles y potentes que son el complemento ideal para el driver 919THI y los hibridos 775HS

  2. VERY GOOD HEAD DESIGN BALL EXPLODES OFF THE FACE.

  3. I had a customer who was looking for an 14 1/2* 4 wood and I chose the 929 HS Fairway wood for him. I built it to the specifications we came up with and we took it to the range. He hit it so pure I ask if I could try it. I also hit it pure and tried to get him not to buy the club as I wanted it. He of course said no so I had to build one for myself. Shortly thereafter we were playing in a tournament together and both had shots up hill to a 525 yd par 5, and we had about 225 yds to the green. He hit first and it looked real good, then I hit and it also looked like it would be close. When we got to the green he had a 1 1/2 ft put for eagle and I had a 20 ft putt for eagle. He made his I didn’t. Since that time every time I pull out the 4 wood and hit it straight, i get the comment they would like a club like that and I tell them they can have one. This is my favorite club in my bag.

  4. The Wishon 929 Fairway Wood is the best FW I have fit and sold, to date!. Play one myself. It consistently attains a few mph higher ball speeds when struck on center compared to other FW Woods on the market, including well know OEM Fairway Woods. The adjustable hosel helps club fitters dial in the optimal fitting specs. The split sole with the slightly lower profile makes it the easiest FW Wood to hit off the deck, that I have seen in years! A “sleeper” attribute of this head is the additional weight port, giving club fitters the option to build the club a little longer or a lot shorter than the more traditional lengths. Don’t miss this one!

    • The 929 FW’S are great. Just had a 16.5* built for me.
      It is the easiest club in my bag to hit out of the fairway / Rough or off the tee. I had this built by Mr. Weitzel at Conquest Custom Golf. He has built all my clubs for me Bill does superior work would recommend him to anyone.

  5. Great head design, easy to hit off the deck, and the hosel is bendable to help fit this club to everyone. Great hot face, traditional look, hard to find anything better.

  6. I have sold a number of these heads and play the 3,5,& 7 myself. A smaller head profile which helps off the fairway and gets the ball up for great carry.

  7. De 929HS FW wood is mijn meest verkochte wood. Een goed aangemeten en gebouwde 929HS is een club die niet mag ontbreken in uw tas. In de fairway krijgt u de ballen eenvoudig omhoog en geeft de club veel lengte. In combinatie met een 919THI driver heeft u een set woods waar u vele jaren plezier van heeft.

  8. If a shallower faced fairway wood fits your eye and game, there is no better fairway wood head available on the planet. I have had no complaints from customers at all. Personaly, I use the 12* and I have no problem getting it up off the fairway. A beauty of a design!

  9. I built a 12 degree for myself and I love the way it performs. The course I play is very windy so it’s important to hit a low trajectory without “ballooning”. I’m very consistent with this stick.

  10. Another fantastic fairway wood. I don’t think the feel/sound are quite as good as the 949MC, but it’s close and as good as any other fairway out there. The 949MC may be just a little hotter, but I think this design is a bit more playable from a variety of lies. I was carrying 16* & 20* 949MCs, but I recently switched out the 20* for the 929HS and I think it’s easier to hit from different lies. I’m not sure I’ll swap the 16* as I use that mainly off the tee, but it probably wouldn’t matter much if I did as both designs are excellent.

  11. This is the hottest fairway wood I sell. When I do a fairway wood fitting I start out with this head and rarely have to try anything else. I had a fitting recently with two golfers who were playing partners, one a 100+ mph driver swing speed and the other a 75-80 mph driver swing speed. Both golfers after hitting 5 balls with the recommended shaft handed me the club and said SOLD, I want one just like this! Long and straight with great trajectory. You can’t go wrong with this head! I have two in my bag.

  12. Get awesome results every single time I make these for customers. The hot face design is really noticeable. Higher and longer shots with just perfect sound and feel. The low profile heads give great confidence when hitting off the deck. I´ll put the same review for the 929HS as in my experience they perform the same, just a tiny difference in size and looks. Truly fairway woods in a league of their own! One customer joked that I should advertise that this head is 17 yards longer than the TaylorMade RocketBallz that’s suppose to be 17 yards longer than anything else. He was hitting the 949MC much further after we custom built it!

  13. I play this wood myself and am very happy with it. It gives me confidence to hit a high shot to an inaccessible flag.

  14. First came the 11° 919 Driver with a 16.5° 929, they are just the best woods I’ve ever hit so I now have on order a 21° 7 wood to replace my three iron, these things just can’t be beat.

  15. Where can i buy a 929hs head?

      If you are a clubmaker with experience in properly building golf clubs, we are very pleased to have the opportunity to serve your needs to supply you with the heads, shafts and grips you need for your clubmaking work. If you are a clubmaker, please then take the time to go to our website, click on the link at the very top for CATALOG REQUEST and fill out the request form so that we can get a little information about your clubmaking work and experience.

      If you are not a clubmaker, we urge you to click on the FIND A CLUBFITTER locator search tool right in the center of the home page of wishongolf.com and put in your town/city/state/zip and see if there is an experienced clubmaker with whom you could meet and work to be fit for the model that you are interested in. Our company is so unlike all the companies whose models you see in all the retail stores and pro shops. We’re totally and completely committed to pursuing a model of CUSTOM FITTING for golfers rather than just putting our designs into shops built to a a series of std specifications. So for golfers to get custom fit so the clubs perform the best possible for each golfer’s different combination of size, strength, athletic ability and swing characteristics, we urge golfers to find a clubfitter in their area, see him/her, and be custom fit. Clubs work better for golfers when they are properly fit.

      Thanks so much for your interest,

  16. I recently had Damian of golfdiagnostics.com here in England build me a new 3 “wood” and after trying models at the range we selected the 929HS 14degree model – I absolutely love it. I am getting great distance and accuracy and the shallow head sits it behind the ball more comfortably for fairway shots. Even at 66 with a swing speed around 95 I can average 240 yards on winter fairways here in the UK.
    This complements my 525 GRT irons beautifully and I’m now thinking of replacing my 752TC driver with a 919THI model.
    I cannot speak highly enough of Damian’s service and am pleased to report that I have convinced several of my fellow golfers to have him build clubs for them. What always amazes them is that these are invariably better clubs for them and cheaper custom-built than the big brands they buy off the shelf or even “fitted” by their range or club pro.
    You may take it that I am a committed fan! Now if someone could only teach me to putt………
    Best wishes

      Thank you so much for taking your time to share your experiences in clubfitting with Damian Donnelly. I am pleased to hear you worked with him, and I am not surprised at all to hear what you have to say about him. I’ve known Damian for several years now, and we have corresponded a lot about technical matters related to clubfitting. From these correspondences, I can tell you it is very easy to know why Damian is a good clubfitter. Not only does he have very good knowledge from his study and experience, but he has an interest and a passion for clubfitting that truly complements his knowledge. Thanks again for YOUR interest as well, and the very best wishes to you in this great game!

  17. can you changed my 14 to 15.5 its the 929hs

    • CHUCK

      It is not possible to change the loft of a driver or wood or hybrid by bending the hosel. Lofts on these heads are done by hand selecting from a large inventory of each model that would have its design loft close to the loft requested through our TWGT Hand Select program. Every clubhead factory on the planet manufactures every clubhead model with slight +/- tolerances for loft, lie, face angle. So what we do is when a clubmaker wants a loft that is a little different than the actual design specs of one of our models, we sort through and measure heads until we can find one with that requested loft. Sometimes that takes a lot of measuring because not all that many heads are at +1 or -1 or +1/2 or -1/2, but with patience it usually can be found. And we do this service because we feel it is important. So to get a 15.5 we would have to sort through the 929-#4 wood heads to see if we can find one at that loft.

      The reason you can bend loft on an iron but not on a driver/wood/hybrid is because with irons, we golfers are ALWAYS taught to address the ball with the face perfectly square to the target. But with woods, the typical approach is to sole the wood on the ground to let it rest flat on its sole before taking the grip and setting up to hit the shot. That means when you bend the hosel of a wood toward or away from the target, when the wood is then soled, the bend becomes a change in the face angle. This is a HUGE myth and bit of misinformation in the industry these days that woods can be bent for loft. Only if you were to take the wood and then HOLD it in a square face position at address can such a bend change the loft. And that’s dodgy because holding the wood square means the sole cannot rest on the ground so you have to somewhat HOVER the head over the ground before making the swing. TOugher to do than to sole the wood before making the swing.

  18. What is the value of COR of this head?

    • NAvin

      Right at 0.820. Because of the smaller head size and smaller face area of the 929 this is as high as we can push the COR. With the 949 we can hit right at 0.830 with the production specs because it is a little larger overall and larger for the face area. But not to worry – for a typical golfer with a 90-95mph driver clubhead speed, a difference of 0.010 in the COR is equivalent to about 1 yard at the most.

  19. I have the fairway metal Wishon Golf 929HS 7 HS STEEL 21degrees. The screw on the sole plate has come off while hitting it, so it’s on the golf course somewhere along with whatever it was holding in the club head’s interior. Why would this happen? Should I play it without the screw and whateve was inside the head? The person who fitted the club for me is not on your clubmaker locator. What should I do with it now?

    • Our sincere apology for not having responded to your comment and question for so long. Somehow the auto notification for comments did not send your comment through to us to be able to see it. Unfortunately we just figured this out this week.

      The only thing that could have come off in play from the sole would be the medallion that covers the weight port on the toe side of the sole. This medallion is not a screw, it is attached by sticky adhesive on the back of the medallion, and some clubmakers also like to use a tiny dab of epoxy to help hold it as well. If your thought about a screw is prompted by looking into the weight chamber and seeing a slot that looks like it takes a flat head screw driver, that is not a screw. That would be a tungsten weight plug that the clubmaker would have epoxied down into the weight chamber as part of his establishing the final swingweight weighting of the club during its assembly. The slot is there in case a clubmaker wants to ever remove such a weight that may be used in the assembly of a club – after heating the weight with a small butane torch, a flat head screw driver can be inserted in the slot to twist the weight free to dump it out.

      If the weight with the slot on the end is still in there, then all you need is to have a medallion to stick over the hole. WE can handle this in one of two ways to assist you. 1) if you wish you can send the club to us at your convenience and we will check everything and install the weight (if missing) and the medallion securely to cover the weight port; 2) we could send you a medallion that you can peel off the backing and press firmly into the opening to get the sticky back adhesive to secure it to the little ledges on the opening. If this is your desire, please email us at contact@wishongolf.com with your address so we can send a medallion to you.

  20. Hi Tom , sorry , I found the stats. 3 wood is 41 3/4 length Lie angle 56

    5 wood. 41 inches. Lie angle 56.5

    Do you have a suggestion for length and lie angle for the 7 wood based on my info.

    Sorry for my first email . It’s an age thing

    Bob

    • Ollie did order a 7 wood today with a 57 lie so I figured he must have known what you needed to order the head.

  21. Excellent fairway wood

  22. I was looking for a good 2-fairway wood for lefties and I came across your website. From the reviews I have read, I know I have to get one of the 929HS, problem is that you don’t seem to have them for left hand. How can you help?

    • DEBO:

      I am VERY sorry but I have to be honest and say I can’t help in this area. Left hand availability of any model is purely a matter of demand beause of the costs associated with tooling dies, development costs and inventory production costs. Unfortunately, in my 30 yrs of club design experience, never once have I seen a left hand model sell more than 8% of the units it will in the right hand version. So that means the right hand demand of a model has to be high enough so the 8% figure can cover all the associated costs incurred in the development and delivery of the left hand version. With the 2 wood in the 929HS set, its demand is VERY, VERY small. So small that the numbers really do not even justify having in the right hand version. And from this, I can say that when the present inventory of the 929-2 wood runs out, we will discontinue it.

      Sorry about that,
      TOM

  23. I have been using the 14 wood for the past few months, and all I can say is wow. I have never been a good fairway wood player, but this thing is so easy to hit. I can move the ball in any direction, and it is perfect off the tee for holes that need accuracy. Question for Tom- I currently hit the 4 wood about 240-250 yards off the tee (fuji fuel x), and am considering getting a 12 or 14 degree. If I go with a similar shaft at 1/2″ longer, how many yards could I expect to gain?

    • Evan

      Thanks so much for sharing your experience with the 929-4 wood. We’re very pleased to hear that you like the club and we know how much fun it is to finally be able to achieve more consistency in an area of the game that has not been all that consistent in performance in the past. Very good !! based on extrapolating your distance with the 4w into a clubhead speed so we could calculate distance change, we would estimate that if you went with a 929-2 wood off the tee at 12* with a 1/2″ longer club length, that should be 7-8 yds more in carry, but the angle of descent of the shot would be lower so the roll out would be a little more than what you see with the 4w. Guessing on normal fwy conditions, we would say the total distance increase from a 12* 2 wood should be around 14-15 yds. Thanks again and the best to you in this great game!

  24. Hi Tom,
    I bought 929HS 14 degree. I fitted with Tour AD W-70 Stiff shaft with 43″ in length. I do not adjust the lie angle yet, still 58 deg. I feel too upright. Not easy for me to find fitter who can bend fairway wood lie angle. Will it be to stiff if I cut the shaft by 1″? Really appreciate your advise. My 775 hybrid well fitted to me but fairway wood.

    • AGUNG

      if you cut 1″ off the butt of this club and if you add a little more weight to the head to bring the swingweight back up a little bit after the butt trim, the shaft would be OK and would not be too stiff.

      TOM

  25. Tom – Specific question then a general one. I have one of your 5 hybrids. 27 degrees. I hit it 160-165 when hit flush and pretty consistent with it. I have the 3 hybrid (21 degrees) and not so consistent. Would I have more success with a 21 degree 7 wood as some have suggested to me? I’m wondering why same loft longer w/ shaft would be easier to hit. Clubhead? Generally, what makes a club harder to hit flush consistently – loft or shaft length?

    • Malcolm:

      I would tend to say that you would see a higher launch angle and from it, better carry with the 21* loft of a 7 wood vs the 21* loft of a hybrid. Getting the right length on the 7w is going to play a big role in this too – so just be sure to not make it longer than what a std 7 wood fwy wood length would be – and if possible think about it being a little shorter than 7 WOOD length to make it sort of in between a hybrid iron length and fwy wood length. And don’t go too stiff on the wood shaft you put in it.

      I do this in my set with a 929 7 wood. “Normal” 7 wood fwy length would be 41″. My 4 hybrid at 24.5* is 38.5″, same as a normal 4 iron. So I do the 929-7 wood at 40″ so it is longer than what a 3 hybrid would be by 1″, but shorter than what a 7 wood would be by 1″ also. Works well for me and I also use an R flex tipped in between what R and S would be since this shorter length will be stiffening up the shaft a little on its own too.

      The reason for this is because of you get 160-65 for the 27* hybrid, that has to say your clubhead speed with that hybrid is not going to be quite high enough to really get the 21* hybrid to launch high enough to stay in the air to carry farther. The 7w has a lower and more rear located CG than the hybrid, both things which can help to get the ball more up than with the 21* loft of the hybrid. But just make sure you don’t use too stiff of a shaft if you do that shorter 7w thing like I described because too much stiffness in the shaft could negate some of the lower and more rear CG effect on flight.

      TOM

  26. Thanks Tom. Shaft is 41 so maybe I will cut it down to 40 per your suggestion. I am 5”6″ and I believe all my irons are 0.5″ shorter than standard so maybe 39.5″

    Ps not sure the email notification of replies is working. I’ll check my spam.

    • Thanks and let me know at contact@wishongolf.com if you got notification of the response from me.

      TOM

  27. Forgot to mention I use 42″ 14* “Thriver”. Average 215-230 with it.

  28. hi tom,
    What alternative 3 wood would you offer to the 929HS? I love the feel but the head is slightly to small for me and do not hit it often out of the center. Do you have a slightly larger head with the same feel? Thank you, Markus

    • MARCUS

      First off, my sincere apology for the delay in responding. The notification feature for posts and comments was not working so we haven’t seen the posts being made here for us to respond. That’s a big Ooops. Sorry about that. The other fwy wood model we offer is the 950HC. Same higher COR, same bendable hosel, same set makeup options as the 929HS but the 950HC is a larger size head with a taller face height than the 929HS. This would be the model you are looking for.

      TOM

  29. Dear Tom , I am so happy to be able to hit again consistent strokes with fairway woods.
    I nearly quit golfing for 10 years, and here I am back to the game for 2 years
    I am 65 years old and a rather tall French man…In the 80’s I played my 3 and 5 woods from the deck with rather good results, loving to win MP (sometimes) with my fairway woods whitout too much strugling idea on mind.
    Now , except a poor bench of shots I was struggling and most of my fairway woods’ shots were poor and without consistency.
    So how it is difficult and frustrating not to be able to play my FW !!!
    After a long and accurate fitting in André’s work shop, this clever and kind man find out several problems with my Mizuno JPX 850 Forged, and with my woods…I was quite sure it was not only my game which caused every trouble.
    I read a lot of good things from your work and after André fitted a new Streling set and a 919 Driver (what great clubs they are!) we went to the 929 fairway woods
    How he had nearly in his mind what it could be the best to me, he chose the 929 5 & 7 FW
    When adressing the ball it looks great , comfortable and easy to play with, nice shape on the head and club face… at my firts shots it was great, and gave to the ball flight a gentel draw…nearly straight, with distance and accuracy.
    You could imagine how great I felt getting back to a nice game, with such a great feeling.
    I is a kind of “revelation” which allow you to be free of any kind of negative thought and focusing only on the game.
    after that, sharing my feeling with André, I found out I was playing golf in a defensive way instead of enjoying the game and playing in a more agressive or positive way
    Thank you Mister Wisdhon : you save me !
    regards from France in a poor English

    • Thank you VERY MUCH for your post !! We are so pleased that you had the chance to be fit by Andre. He is one of my very best students and I now feel that he is one of the top ten clubfitters in the world. Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us and may you continue to enjoy this great game more than before, and for a long time !!

      TOM
