Rated 5 out of 5 by Doc Long, High, and Straight
I am a senior who uses the 5, 7, and 9 Callaway fairway woods. Unless I mishit the ball, the flight is long, high, and straight. The ball also lands softly with little roll. As a result, balls stay on the green when hit from the tee, fairway, or rough. Callaway optiforce fairway woods are the best on the market today.
P.S. I also use the optiforce driver and set it for 11 degrees. It may be the best driver ever made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GolferBob Easy to hit
These fairway woods are easier to get in the air than most fairway woods I have owned. But the key is not to swing too hard even though they are lighter. And very long.

by ladahl Best of both worlds!
I've played both the RFX 17* and the XH 17*, until this was released... I can say, without a doubt, this will stay in the bag. An excellent combination of forgiveness and distance. Great new line-up, Callaway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by forabogey4 Great 3 wood! Mitsubishi shaft is a +!
Good distance with a solid sound at impact. This club is visually stunning, and the Mitsubishi shaft option is a winning combination. Better players will notice a cosmetic wearing of the lower face finish, sweepers will not. I like a flat sole plate for fairway strikes, but it works well of the tee too. Love the classic look at address.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Debo Pure swing, great weight and feel. Never mind best looking 3 wood ever.
Club is incredible. Callaway out did themselves with this one. When I went to the store needing a 3 wood, I tried all Callaway models and other brand models of woods. This one felt amazing from the second I put it in my hands. The weight, feel and looks are unrivaled, not only in your hands but as you are swinging the club too.
Contact feels pure. Looks at address can not be beat.
Just like many things in life, the extra money is WELL worth it. Even my friends and my playing partenrs love the club as I do, and reiterate all the above statements. When they really need to get a hold of one, they leave there 3 wood in the bag, and ask me to use mine.
Buy this club. I'm counting down the days for the OptiForce Hybrid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peter Way too easy
I never was a consistent 3 wood hitter. So one day, In a Edwin Watts store, I was trying out for some hybrids and bought amazing X Hot 4/5 hybrids. High, long, dead straight and gave me the exact distances I was looking for (195 and 210). After this excellent experience with the hybrids, I asked the clerk what he would suggest for 3 wood. He proposed the X Hot, well...easy call after hitting the hybrids so solid. After 3 shots I decided that the X Hot 3 wood was not working for me. He than suggested the Optiforce fairway wood.
WOW...this was too easy.... Smooth feel in the swing, solid feel, perfect swingweight and just dead solid. I love the look of the club, the face marks...just everything. I can't get enough of it, it is addictive to hit it. I believe the head and shaft work perfectly together. The project pxv shaft is amazing and probably why I hit this thing so well.
I hope for the same experience with the Optiforce 440 driver which I will receive tomorrow. Congratulations for this excellent product.
I never was a Callaway fan. Just didn't like it. In the meantime I bought the x forged irons (beaufiful pxi shafts) with the buttery feel, darn than the hybrids...optiforce 3wood. Now I started to worry and said stop....but I could not and had to get the Optiforce driver.
Callaway is really kicking butt right now. We'll done !!!!!! Hope you continue to succeed in 2014.

Placed 3&5 woods in my bag just before USGA qualifier. These clubs are the reason I qualified for the USGA Senior am. Better than the x-hot pro or extreme. Thanks Callaway.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Halacious Excellent new technology
I have not had a 5 Wood in my bag for years, but decided to try the new Callaway Optiforce 5 Wood to replace my 3H. I found that club to be forgiving, predictable and easy to hit and get up into the air. Most likely will be buying it and will be in my bag.
