  1. What lengths did you design these fairway wood heads to be built at? I know you designed your drivers to be built close to 43.5 inches. If I built a set of 5,7,9 woods following a driver at 43.5 inches do you start at say a 42.5 inch 3 wood and just go a half inch shorter every club?

  2. Hi Tom,

    After getting fitted by Tony Wright in Oak Ridge, TN with a 919THI Driver that I am now hitting 20 yards longer (with a 2 inch shorter shaft no less) I am going back to be fitted for the rest of my bag this Friday. I am intrigued with the idea of getting a 3 through 9 wood to replace my current 3 and 5 wood, and 3 and 4 hybrid. If I understand your comments correctly, I could use more of a hybrid shaft length in the 7 and 9 wood (I like a regular 5 wood length, though probably will be shortened from my current length if the driver is any indication) but am wondering if maybe targeting a length between a hybrid and wood length may make more sense? I am sure Tony and I will look at the launch monitor data to make the best decision – but am wondering if others have made similar design choices. At a 100 mph driver swing speed, what would be the difference in a 4 hybrid at 39.5″ (my current length) vs say 40.5″ which splits the difference of a normal 41.5″ 7 wood length? Also am looking at the Sterling irons vs the 565mc irons – can’t wait till Friday. Thanks for your attention and for creating such great products!

    • Sorry – just to clarify my question, using a 7 wood head to replace my 3 hybrid, what would be the difference in using a 40.25″ shaft (my current 3 hybrid length) vs a 40.75″ (splitting the difference) vs 41.5″ shaft for a normal 7 wood.

    • SEAN:

      Thanks very much for taking the time to share your experience with us about the driver and to pose the questions for the woods to come. I am not surprised to hear your results because for one, going shorter with the driver is such a good idea for 99% of all golfers, and two, in working with Tony you are working with one of the very best fitters in the whole country. I kid you not on that. I’ve known Tony for many years and he is a continuing regular in technical questions and discussions with me about all areas related to club performance and fitting technology.

      In truth, put this matter of the lengths for the woods in Tony’s hands completely because he’ll make the right analysis and recommendation. Typically the difference of an inch in woods is pretty insignificant in terms of distance for most golfers. Usually it would not be more than 2mph at the most for an inch difference in length. But having the clubs weighted to match your swing tempo, which I am sure Tony will figure out, can negate that.

      Thanks very much and the best to you in this great game,

  3. Hi Tom

    I’ve got so many of your models now that I find that I’m commenting on every page now!

    I recently bought a 365pf in 16.5* for my wife. The club is absolutely stunning. My wife can hit the club 180m (nearly 200 yds). She has never carried more than a 19 deg before, so it was a risk. But she hits it so well and now has an extra 20 yards up her sleeve..

    Quite recently I also bought myself “new-old” stock of the 915FH in 18.5*. It is very solid but despite a few tweaks, we found that I couldn’t really hit it as high as I’d like. So after a bit of contemplation, I decided to get a 365pf for myself.

    I took mine to the range for the first time today and OMG it’s insanely good! It’s so easy to hit, and goes with a beautiful high (and straight) flight.

    I hope this doesn’t end up being a ‘sleeper’ model. I can’t imagine what your really good fairways are like if this one’s a sleeper! Best fairway wood I have hit, ever.

    Yet another stunning design. Great job
    Frazer

    • Frazer:

      Then that is a remarkable accomplishment to be on each comment page on our site !!! Well done !! Wow, you wife must have very decent clubhead speed to hit the 365-4 wood nearly 200 yards. That’s outstanding ! But also very nice to hear that you have discovered the secret of the 365PF for yourself too ! You know, this 365PF model is not selling that well and stands a distant 3rd behind the 929HS first, then the 950HC. I think it is because people now look at Wishon Golf for our high COR designs. While the 365 has a sneaky high smash factor for its cast stainless construction, most do not see that and tend to look more at the actual thin, high strength steel face of the 929/950 and make that assumption it has to be better because of that face.

      Speaking selfishly as a golfer and separating myself from the designer role, I really like the progression of head shape in the 365’s. I might do a set for me, but I still have my old old 915F/H in both a 21* #3 hybrid at 39″ and a 25* #4 hybrid at 38.5″. Those two for me personally have been extremely good clubs. And as a matter of fact, they too have a higher smash factor even though they are both cast stainless models.

      Thanks again so much for your enthusiasm for what we do !!!

  4. How would these perform out of the rough if I were considering a combined fairway wood/hybrid set makeup?

    • LOUIS

      There is no question that the smaller the sole area, the less drag/grab there will be on the head when hitting shots from rough. but each golfer is different in terms of the things that dictate how much the rough hangs up any club on a shot – clubhead speed, angle of attack being the key things that dictate how well a player can get a clubhead through the rough. not to mention the variability of the rough itself in different areas of the country due to grass length and grass type (Bermuda vs Rye grass vs bent, etc). if the golfer is of decent ability with a driver clubhead speed of >90mph and the rough is not more than 2″ in length, then I think the 365’s perform well or at least reasonably well for shots from that type of rough. Any less speed, any more shallow A of A, any longer rough and no, there is no club that can get the ball out cleanly for even close to full distance.

  5. Tom,
    I just completed building one of the #9 365PF models w/S2S Blue hybrid shaft/blk rib grip. Seriously, I am just overwhelmed with this club. I am a long time customer with your products and believe me when I say I have tinkered with many, many club configurations. I hope others will try this model especially if one is after initial easy launch with a stable/tight ball flight. I have borderline slow swing speed and its rare I can build a hybrid in the 24 degree loft range to what I fit for length wise and get the carry distance I am achieving from this combo. In the past I have had to build fairway wood lengths with anything below 25 degrees loft to achieve the distance with what I am getting with this model/shorter hybrid length. And I love the position of the sole weight port on this model. Extremely solid feel. Thank you.

    • Well thank you, thank you very much for taking your time to come and let us know your experiences with the 365 wood. We’re really pleased that you like the new design and that it is performing well for you and giving you what you wanted in the model.

      When I finished this model last year, I really thought this would be a genuine “sleeper” model, meaning it was a whole lot better model than most people would realize, given that it is sort of overshadowed by the high COR models 929 and 950. Thanks much for your support !!

  6. Hi Tom,
    I own many of your products;919,775,560. I’m quite good with iron and hybrid, so that I never own any fwy wood. If I want to have my first fwy wood which model and loft is reccommendable? My swing speed is about 93mph.

    • ROY
      You know, really, it is very possible to cover the distances of most of the fairway woods with hybrids. So if you have always preferred elements of the hybrid – smaller shape/size, shorter length – then don’t feel compelled to have to use fwy woods. About the ONLY place you’d miss distance with a fwy wood vs a hybrid would be if you have the ability to hit a 3 wood well up in the air to fly. 3-woods being 14, 15, 16 loft means that you do not have a hybrid at that low of a loft. But do keep in mind that a LOT of golfers do not have the ability to consistently hit that low of a loft well up in the air to fly for shots hit off the fairway with no tee. If you can do that, fine, consider getting a 3w but do not make it any longer than 42″ so you have a little shorter length to help with the control. Among our wood models, I would strongly recommend the 929HS because it is not as tall faced as the other models in our line, which makes them easier to hit up to fly.

      TOM

  7. Tom,
    Would you recommend these fairway woods to someone who is a scratch golfer or do you have another design you would recommend? I’ve been playing your Driver, fairway woods, irons and wedges for years and love them. I’m looking for new fairway woods and any help would be greatly appreciated. On a side note, I am going to be giving your Sterling single length irons a go here soon and am trying to fill some gaps from my 919 driver to the sterling 5 iron. Thanks – Robert

    • ROBERT:
      The 365PF can certainly be played by a scratch golfer. The choice of a fwy wood should be made on the basis of, 1) does the golfer really like the size, shape and especially is the face height not too tall to hurt his confidence in getting the ball consistently up to fly, nor too shallow to cause a potential problem with sky-ing the ball, 2) is the smash factor good enough for the golfer’s clubhead speed – avg to slower speed players should be using high COR face fwy woods, but players with higher speeds don’t have to worry about this much, 3) can the heads be customized enough to fit the golfer, meaning can the hosel be bent for lie and face angle fitting needs and does the head allow weight adjustment to hit pretty much any swingweight the golfer needs for the shaft weight, grip weight and lengths he wants to play.

  8. Hi Tom
    I have been buying your products for year and have always enjoyed the looks and performance. i had the 929hs 4 wood and loved it but then i saw the 949 with the hotter cup face and jumped all over that. Now i do like the distance of the 949 but felt like i was able to hit the 929 better from the fairway. where does this new 365 fall i guess i’m like everyone else and looking for the best on off center hits but is goof from the fairways which would you recommend ?

    thanks Michael

    • MIchael
      I designed the 365 woods to be “in between” the 950 and 929 in terms of face height – not as tall as the traditional 950, not as shallow as the 929. Do not let anyone tell you that any fairway wood has good off center hit forgiveness. Even with a larger traditional size fwy wood like the 950, that head size and face area is way too small to ever hope to offer an off center hit forgiveness that could even be half of what is possible with a driver. No scientific way to get that done. Nada. Anyone who markets a fwy wood on the basis of a high level of off center hit forgiveness is full of Stuff.

      Fwys should be chosen on the basis of 1) your confidence vs the size and face height – do you set the head down and NEVER worry about getting the ball well up to fly, 2) whether it has a high COR face and whether you need/want that extra ball speed/distance, 3) does it have enough weight addition capability so if you want to make the woods with either a super light shaft or a shorter length, can you get the swingweight up there where it needs to be for YOUR swing and tempo, 4) does it have a bendable hosel so if you do need a different lie or face angle, can you get that done with the wood.

      those are the key decision points for fwy woods,
      TOM

  9. Tom,
    I am not a tall golfer and I have all of my irons bent 2 degrees flat. I have always felt that if my fairway woods rested more flat, I would be able to hit them better. Every source/person I’ve talked to says that lie angle doesn’t matter for fairway woods/drivers. Can you speak to that at all? I see that you certainly have adjustable fairway woods/drivers, but could you articulate the difference lie would make?

    Thanks,

    -Josh

    • JOSH
      First off, my sincere apology for the big 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 whole reason I designed a bendable hosel on our drivers, fairway woods and hybrids was because my research work began to show that it was important to have the lie correct with these lower loft heads, but for different reasons – some actual performance related but some were psychologically related too.

      With fwy woods, we found if the lie is off at impact so that for example, the toe is up, this actually raises the center of the face higher up off the ground as well. And since fwy woods are to be hit more off the fairway without a tee peg, when the face is up a little more off the ground, it makes it more difficult to make contact in the center of the face to get best ball speed, distance and performance. Numerous times we have found if the fwy wood lie is fit right so the sole travels LEVEL with the ground through to impact, the golfer has better shot consistency and is able to get the ball more up to fly and carry.

      With our bendable hosel drivers, woods and hybrids we can do any lie from 4* upright to 4* flat. Most of the time, we find clubmakers ask us to bend the fwy woods flatter. We know this is because in the industry, most every golf company makes the designed lie angle of their fwy woods to be too upright.

      Hope this helps
      TOM

  10. First thank you for making truly amazing equipment and all you do for golf. Now my question is what is main difference between these new 365 woods and the 929? I have 4 wood in 929 that is my best club in my bag I have struggled with hybrids and was reading about using one of these or even 929 like a hybrid just wanted your thoughts on what is the biggest difference between the two

    • LEVI
      Thanks so much for your kind words. Very much appreciated for sure. 929HS has a slightly more shallow face height than the 365PF,which means is has a slightly lower center of gravity to offer a slightly higher launch angle for the same loft. Also, while the smash factor of the 365PF is pretty darn high for an all investment cast fairway wood, the 929HS is a definite high strength steel thin face so its smash factor will be slightly higher – like 1.49 for the 919HS vs 1.44 or so for the 365PF. In actual distance terms, that’s really only about a 2-3 yd increase for the 929 over the 365. Beyond that, the shape of the 365 is a little different as the set transitions to the 5, 7, 9 compared to the profile look of the 929. Both have the bendable hosel for a wide range of lie and face angle fitting needs for the golfer.

      Hope this helps and thanks again for your interest for sure,
      TOM

  11. Tom,
    I currently have a 335HL #6 hybrid that I absolutely love. My question concerns adding a #4 or #5 hybrid. Note I am not high swing speed player, traditionally have played high loft fairway woods vs a 3-6 iron mainly for launch/carry. Could you explain differences between a 335HL 4 hybrid vs your new 365 #9 wood/hybrid club head? Specifically, launch angle (i.e. is one design much higher vs the other?), smash factor,etc. Thank you.

    • BR:

      I’m going to say based on my knowledge of the two models in development that for the same loft, the 335HL would hit the ball higher than the 365PF wood. Smash factor will certainly be higher for the 365PF, I can assure you of that. But for an avg to slower swing speed player, that is not going to translate into much of a real distance difference from that higher smash factor in the 365PF woods. In the end, the decision would probably come down more to if the 335 is made shorter in length, would you hit that shorter length more consistently than the longer length of the fwy wood.

      TOM

  12. Tom, I’m working on getting a better set make up. My staple clubs are 5i thru LW (+-170yd-in, 5i-38″, average 82mph), 4 wd, and the Driver. I want to have two hybrids at iron lengths for my +- 180 to 190 yd clubs. I’m thinking about first testing a 5 or 7 wood at 2i or 3i length length, 39-1/2″, 39″ with the hybrid red R shaft. Since the 365PFs are not available, is there any reason that the 929HS wouldn’t work just as well for a hybrid? Could you please explain pros and cons of 365 vs 929 as hybrid. Sorry about all the questions. I’m needing to accomplish better confidence/consistency with the distance range of 180 to 190. I would appreciate very much your recommendation on this. Thank you, Oran.

    • ORAN
      yes, because the 929HS also has two separate weight addition positions, it can be used to make a hybrid. As you make a wood like this shorter to become more of a hybrid, there is a need to add more weight to the head to achieve a desired swingweight at the hybrid length which is shorter than a typical fwy wood length. There is a weight bore on the toe end of the sole and at the bottom of the hosel bore, below the shafting bore. Both take up to a 9 gram tungsten weight if needed to get the headweight/swingweight to the final desired level. In fact, I have done this in my own personal set with a 929 #7 wood head that I made for my own needs at 39 1/2″ in length instead of what would be a normal wood length for the 7w which would be 41″.

      Thanks very much for your interest,
      TOM

  13. Tom, I notice that the 365PF description indicates that they are also an option for hybrids. Does this mean that the S2S hybrid shafts would work well for these heads for hybrid lengths, etc? Thank you.

    • ORAN

      Thanks very much for your interest in the new 365’s. yes, if the 365 #5, 7 or 9 are intended to be built as a hybrid, we would recommend that be done with one of our hybrid shafts and at the iron type hybrid lengths we have always, always recommended for our hybrid models. The bore of the 365PF is 0.335 so it fits either our wood shafts to be used as a fwy wood, or our hybrid shafts to be used as a hybrid. The reason we have always taught that hybrids should be fit to iron lengths is because we always have seen hybrids as an IRON REPLACEMENT CLUB. Hence if you want to toss the 3i, 4i, 5i from a set because they’re tougher to hit due to their low loft, the replacement hybrids should be made to have the same length as the irons being replaced so the chances for proper distance gaps as you go up from the irons into the hybrids is the same and is consistent as it is through the irons.

      Thanks again,
      TOM

  14. 0.370 bore diameter? Is that correct?

    • TOM
      yes, all our iron and wedge designs are always going to be manufactured with a 0.370″ parallel bore. There are SO MANY MORE shaft options for fitting different golfers when you use a 0.370 bore than there are with 0.355 taper tips.

      TOM

    • TOM
      I am sorry, I did not happen to see that your question referred to the 365PF fairway woods – there were so many comments here all about the single length sets and yours came into our site among those so I just assumed it was referring to the single length iron sets. No, the 365PF woods are 0.335 parallel bore – I will check that page on the site and if we made a mistake about this bore diam for the 365 woods, we’ll get it fixed. Sorry about that,
      TOM
