Titleist 915F, 915Fd Fairway Woods

 

Category: Better-Player Fairway Woods
Price: $280
WE TESTED:
915F in 15° (adjusts 14.25° to 16.5°) and 16.5° (adjusts 15.75° to 18°) with Mitsubishi Diamana M+ Red 60 shaft; 915Fd in 15° (adjusts 14.25° to 16.5°). Both tested with Mitsu. Diamana S+ Blue 70, D+ White 80 and Aldila Rogue Black 80.
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: The sole channel and Carpenter steel face combine to produce faster ball speeds with lower spin than 913 woods.

PROS

 

PLAYABILITY: Among the highest-rated woods; easy to shape shots low, high or side to side; surprisingly simple to hit—the ball seems to fly effortlessly from just about any lie.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: One of the club’s greatest strengths—consistently produces straight shots on command; saves you strokes but won’t cover up your worst misses.
DISTANCE: Stacks up with the longest woods; guys hit shots on tight par 4s knowing they won’t give up much by leaving the driver in the bag.
FEEL: A clear favorite—solid yet soft, like a persimmon wood but with a lot more power.
LOOK: The highest-rated model—clean, classic, and beautiful; lines up perfectly behind the ball.

CONS

 

A few testers don’t think there’s enough of an improvement over the 913 woods; they can be difficult for some guys to hit from tight lies.

BOTTOM LINE: The 915’s are some of the top fairway woods tested. These big hitters are precise, boast an elegant, understated look and feel great during the swing and at impact.
