We tested: 3-PW in Royal Precision Rifle Project X Flighted steel shaft. Shaft length/loft (6-iron): 37.5"/30°
Company line: "A narrower sole, beveled trailing edge, chamfered topline and high toe produce a more traditional look that appeals to the highly skilled player. The heel design reduces turf drag, while a longer hosel positions the CG for optimum trajectory control."
Our Test Panel Says: PROS: A great club if all you want is straight; a steady performer from rough; sidespin is a nonissue; one-half club longer than most on solid hits, longer on misses; non-glare brushed finish isn't a distraction; larger face increases sweet spot; nicely weighted; you wish your wife were this forgiving; good for those transitioning from a larger, game-improvement club.
CONS: Don't expect much shot shape; chips feel dull, almost numb, and come off too fast; not overly playable; look elsewhere if you want tons of excitement.
"Very forgiving for a players' club." Mark Haberstroh (4)
