FAIRWAY WOODS

 

The EQ1-NX Fairway Woods represent the most unique and versatile fairway wood design ever created through a greatly expanded internal weight addition capability to allow custom assembly to achieve a fairway wood single length or to be played at conventional fairway wood lengths.   



Features:

    • Each EQ-1-NX fairway wood head is produced with the ability to add up to a maximum of 30g to achieve normal swingweights at a 40” to 41”single length to complement the EQ1-NX single length irons and hybrids

    • Natural head weight spec of each EQ1-NX fairway wood head also allows assembly to conventional wood lengths of #3(42”-43”), #4(41.5”-42.5”), #5(41”-42”), #7(40”-41”).  Any length in between 40” and conventional fairway wood lengths is also capable for an even wider range of fitting options 

    • High COR thin high strength steel face design 

    • Available in #3(15*) #4(17*), #5(19*), #7(21*) in both RH and LH.  For single length use we recommend a set makeup of #3/#5 for better ball strikers or players with a driver clubhead speed over 95mph and a set makeup of #4/#7 for average players or any golfers with a driver clubhead speed under 95mph 

    • The four different weight bores allow for maintaining the best CG position low and center located, as well as to be able to increase the trajectory with the new twin rear sole weight bores  

    • Each EQ1-NX fairway is shipped with 2 x 6g and 2 x 9g weights included to make it more economical when building to match the EQ1 single length irons

    • The spec lie angle of 60* for each EQ1-NX fairway wood is created for assembly to the single length option between 40” and 41”. EQ1-NX fairway woods are capable of being bent up to 2° to allow proper lie fitting when assembled to conventional fairway wood lengths

Hi Tom,

I’m looking to have a 4 wood and 7 wood built. In looking at the EQ1-NX woods and the 927 HS woods, I noticed that the bulge and roll of the two differ with the bulge and roll of the EQ1s being the same as the 929 HS woods. Would you explain the bulge and roll differences between the two models and discuss who might be a better fit for either? Thanks.

Bill In looking back at the bulge/roll specs of the 929 and EQ1 woods, the only one that is different is the 929-5 with its 14″ bulge vs the EQ-5 with its 15″ bulge. The bulge and roll for each of the other woods in both sets are the same. And believe me, a 1″ bulge radius difference is truly insignificant. Bulge differences in woods only begin to have any effect when the difference is 2″ or more. And that difference is subtle and only even begins to show up for shots hit WAY off toward the toe or heel… Read more »

Tom, I am comparing the EQ1 and 927 HS fairway woods. I plan to get fit for a 4 wood and a 7 wood with one of these heads. Could you explain the differences in the Bulge and Roll specs of the respective heads and who might benefit from each? Thanks.

Bill Between the EQ and 927 woods, the only bulge difference is in the 7 wood where it is 16″ for the EQ and 15″ for the 927. That 1″ difference is insignificant and I only did that to help make things easier and more convenient for the production factory in terms of the post cast bulge adjustment dies that they have to make to ensure consistency with the face radius. For the vertical roll, we just happened to quit using the GRT acronym for the 927 and just say it is a 20″ roll radius. Every wood we have… Read more »

Most companies make their 3w clubs to be at least 43.5″ in playing length and for the vast majority of golfers, that length for a club that has a head with only 15-16* loft is too difficult to hit consistently solid for shots off a normal fairway lie. That is the reason why I have begun to design all my newer fwy wood head models with multiple weight bores on… Read more »

Colton The std lie spec for the EQ1 #7-w is 60* and the body and hosel of the head, like all my fwys and hybrids, is made from a steel alloy that is bendable for lie and face angle. So you can get a 61* lie by either, 1) ordering the head from Diamond Golf to be hand picked for a 61* lie, 2) ask Diamond to bend it to 61* lie before they ship it, 3) if you have a suitable L/L bending machine with a fwy wood/hybrid clamping apparatus and you have bending experience, you could do the… Read more »

Hello Tom,

I have to be “that guy” and ask if a 9-wood with about 25° loft is in the plans for those of us (myself included) with lower swing speeds. Of course I don’t have access to any sales numbers to know if that is economically feasible.

Failing that, I don’t see any other 9-woods in the current Wishon lineup. Do you have any recommendations to add a 9-wood (either historical Wishon or other) at single length to complement the 4- and 7-woods?

When the golfer deviates from the norms by bending/crouching or standing much more upright/erect to the ball, OR, when they do not achieve a reasonably normal impact position posture wise,… Read more »

Maybe a (2 )wood at 13° or an (8) wood at 25°. I’m sure that you see what I’m trying to do. Getting a stock 3,4,5 and 7 wood would be too close together in lofts.

I never designed the EQ1 fwy woods with the intent that any golfer would own all four of them in his set. Better players or players with higher clubhead speeds would be encouraged to have a 3, 5 set makeup while those less skilled or with avg to slower speeds would be better off with a set makeup of 4, 7 in the EQ woods.

BEN Staying down on the shot is a matter of retaining how much you are bent over at address, through impact as well. Some people key into this by trying to actually watch the clubhead streak through impact before allowing the head to rotate forward and see the target. Some get the feeling that they are looking at the back of the ball, not the top, so you are actually a little more bent over through the swing. And others find that if they make sure the knees are bent and KEPT BENT THROUGH IMPACT ,they can stay down on… Read more »

Pat That depends entirely on the weight of the shaft, weight of the grip and balance point of the shaft. But for a 40″ 5-w with a 65g shaft and 50g grip, it would take 240 grams of headweight to achieve a D0 swingweight. For each 7g that the shaft is heavier than that, subtract 2g from the headweight. And for each 4g that the grip is heavier than 50g, add 2g to the head weight. With the spec head weight of 218g for the 5w head, that means you would have enough weight addition capability in the 4 different… Read more »

I see that there is a difference of 2° loft and 5g weight between each of the heads, until you get to the 5 & 7 woods and then there is a difference of 2° loft and 10g weight. Why the 10g difference between those two heads? Seems like it would’ve made more sense to make it 222g to keep the weight difference consistent, and then you could also make the set of woods at a longer length like 42″ without having an awkwardly high swing weight.

The 2* loft change is there because I do not intend for any golfer to be fit into a full set of 3, 4, 5, 7 woods. I see the set makeup options there as being 3+5 or 4+7. When you think about the wood set makeups that way, the head weight makes more sense. Besides there are 4 weight bores. Four. So you can go as short as you want for more control. And these days I am very big on going with shorter length fwy woods.

Hi Tom. Have you received good feedback when golfers have made some of your EQ1-NX line into variable lengths for Irons, Hybrids and Woods in this model before?. Im going to get built: OL 8i-LW (6 clubs) because i struggle to make contact from 150 yrds and shorter with every club shorter than a 38″ length. From there its a progressive variable length from 7i (38.5), 6h (39.25), 5h (40), 7w (41), 5w (42), 3w(43). Of course lies will be progressly be flatter too as they get longer in length. Cheers!

Also, with the driver you would find it almost impossible to achieve a normal swingweight at 40,… Read more »

Over the past several years I have become more and more of a fan of shorter fwy wood lengths because that makes them easier to hit consistently and it doesn’t rob you of much distance at all. So where 42″ is the old std length for a 5w, I am really in favor of no longer than 41″. And if your clubhead speed is over 95-100 or so with the driver, going to even 40 or 40.5″ for it would be a big help, consistency and accuracy wise, IMO.

Since you say you hit the Sterling 7 iron (31* loft) between 148-160, that roughly means your clubhead speed should be around 75-80mph on average. Unless you are very steep doming down into the ball, that means you should be ok with having the 5 iron as a part of the single length irons in your set makeup. In that case, your set makeup estimate of D/4w/7w/4H and 5 to GW should… Read more »

Hello Tom,

I’ve chosen the 4 and 7 EQ1 fairway combination at 41”, and the EQ1irons at 37.5” to help me stay a little more upright.

I was thinking I might add 4,5 and 6 and start the iron set at 7 iron, but I’m not sure it the 4 will do it’s own job @ 20deg considering the 7 wood is 21deg.

Thanks Tom! That was great to hear! I might try that option with one of my ckubs to see how it goes!

Tom, I began my journey of developing a golf bag filled with Wishon clubs last October but covid and personal issues have interfered with progressing. Happily I’m getting started with my local fitter Ed Ellis next week. In the interval from last October I’ve continued developing my full swing which has heightened my interest in single length clubs. Ed and I are going to discuss a full set of single length irons when we get together next week then add hybrids and fairway woods to the mix next. I really believe one shaft length and swing weight for my irons… Read more »

Steve Thanks very much for taking your time to stop by and ask for a little help. There are still some things I don’t know that could help offer a little more insight, mainly what is the length and loft of your current hybrids. You said about 40″ but did not mention lofts. The possible difficulties in going with a fwy wood(s) without ever having used them would be, 1) their longer length vs the hybrids, 2) their lower loft vs whatever the lowest loft of your hybrids might be. In the basics of golf clubs, longer length AND lower… Read more »

Tom, Thanks much for your thoughts. The most important is your suggestion to listen to Ed. We meet next Tuesday afternoon to start and I’ll listen. I’m a late comer to golf, only really getting started when I was 65 years old. Now I’m almost 71 and remain as eager to learn how to play this game as ever. My original teacher, whom I still work with, had me upgrade my original used golf clubs for something more current about 5 years ago. It was sort of a beginner set of Mizuno irons with a #3 Mizuno hybrid. He gave… Read more »

Bonjour Tom!

As you know I’ve been selling Wishon clubs since you started your company. Can’t beat the quality and price…not to mention what you do for the custom club industry. Thanks so much!
What would be the tipping instructions for EQ1-NX fairway woods if making at 40”-41”. Thanks Tom and stay in the short grass.

Jacques Thanks so much to YOU for all your depth of fitting knowledge that makes you such a great help for the golfers that are smart enough to find you and work with you!!! Whether at 40, 40.5 or 41 inches, the tip trim for the wood shafts would be the same as for a 7 wood in the trimming instructions. If all woods are to be that same length, then all shafts are tipped as per what the 7w tip trim is to be for the shafts you are using. Thanks much, stay safe and since you are up… Read more »
