Hi Tom
I’ve become interested in your clubs after searching for flatter lie angles in fairway woods, and finding out that the hosels are bendable. That is exactly what i am looking for. My question about the 365PF model is about the range of bend – it says +/- 2 degrees for these, although generally the other woods and hybrids seem to indicate +/- 4 degrees. Is this a typo, or is there something specific about the 365PF that results in the lesser bending range?
Thanks

Hello Tom, I appreciate the time you take to answer people’s questions. Quick question on one length. I have had your Sterling irons pretty much as soon as you came out with them. I absolutely love them and the one length concept. I use the Sterling 5H to 9 iron. I have 4 single length wedges. The PW and GW are stock length and SW and LW are both lengthened to match. I never hit full shots with the SW and LW so my gaping is still correct. I also brought the single length concept to the other end of… Read more »

Tom my question is in regards to measuring this fairway wood and your other offerings as well. What perplexes me about your company is that you claim to be for custom fitters yet you dont give any information on how to actually measure the specs on the clubs. I have checked the specs that the clubs are said to come with and I have no clue where they got what they got. This includes using your stated face width and dividing by 2 and every other imaginable option. I believe you told me at one point that the edges of… Read more »

Tom Wishon

Andrew I do not think I have ever been successful in teaching anyone how to measure head specs unless, 1) they were with me in person in my workshop, or 2) they sent me a box of heads that I measured and sent back to them with my measurements written on the heads. In this method the clubmaker would put the heads into the gauge and adjust the gauge to the measurements I wrote down. Then the clubmaker would look closely at the touch points on the head to know how to fixture each head in the gauge. I am… Read more »

Hi Tom,
Thanks for the response! I was hoping for the smash factor info on the 365pf head, sorry my initial inquiry wasn’t too clear.
I have hit the 950hc and think it’s terrific.
I was also curious if the sound from this head (365pf) is noticeably different from the others due to the steel construction.
Thank you

Tom Wishon

KYLE Sorry for the misunderstanding on your request. The 365PF smash factor should be in the area of 1.40 to 1.42 because it is not made with a high strength steel alloy for the face as are the 929 and 950 woods. The 365 is a conventional 2 pc investment cast construction so the face is the same alloy as the body and cast along with the body, not separately welded to the body as are the 929/950. But I did select an alloy that I could thin a little bit to try to eek out a little more COR… Read more »

Kyle

Hi Tom,
Was going to build a 950HC, but am curious to try this model as I haven’t seen it yet. When you say it has the highest smash factor for an investment steel fw, how does that compare to something like the 950HC (which I assume is ~.83 COR).
I’m also curious how the acoustics compare with the other fairways you offer.
Finally, thank you for the adjustable hosel and hand selection options – it’s truly a game-changer and it’s too bad other companies haven’t followed suite.
Thank you!
Kyle

Tom Wishon

KYLE In face to back and toe to heel size as you look down on it in the playing position, the 950HC is slightly smaller than the same dimensions you see on some of the fairway models from the big OEMs like TM or Ping or Titleist or Callaway. The face height is about the same as what you see on these other companies’ fwy wood models at 34mm. It is made so when the face specs are hit dead on in production, the smash factor as read by a good launch monitor like TrackMAn or Flight Scope will be… Read more »

David Bojanowski

Hi Tom, first of all thank you for all your efforts in club making design and making that knowledge accessible for those willing to learn. I am an engineer by trade and took up this hobby some 20 years ago and continue to learn more from your articles and books and really appreciate your passion to educate and share your wealth of experience. I am in the middle of a club build and have combined the 979ss irons with the 365pf woods. The irons set is completed (5i to SW with the green S2S shaft A/L flex) and my customer… Read more »

Tom Wishon

DAVID Thanks so much for your kind words of support and appreciation for the information ! I do appreciate that and am pleased to hear with your technical background that the information is helpful and interesting to you. I very much still prefer fitting golfers with a one inch progression for length with any model of fwy woods. Doing that definitely helps ensure that there can be a decent distance difference between woods whose loft only may change by 3* from club to club, especially the slower swing speed players. Thanks again and the very best to you in this… Read more »

Kourt

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?

Sean

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… Read more »

Sean

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.

Tom Wishon

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

Tom Wishon

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… Read more »

Louis

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

Tom Wishon

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).… Read more »

BR

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… Read more »

Tom Wishon

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 !!… Read more »

Roy

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.

Tom Wishon

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… Read more »

Robert

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

Tom Wishon

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… Read more »

Michael

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

Tom Wishon

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.… Read more »

Josh

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

Tom Wishon

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… Read more »

Levi Harris

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

Tom Wishon

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… Read more »

BR

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.

Tom Wishon

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… Read more »

Oran

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… Read more »

Tom Wishon

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… Read more »

Oran

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.

Tom Wishon

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… Read more »

Tom

0.370 bore diameter? Is that correct?

Tom Wishon

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 Wishon

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
