Titleist 913F.d Fairway Woods
Category: Better-Player Fairway Woods
Price: $249
WE TESTED:
15° (+1.5°/- .75°) with Mitsubishi Diamana S+ Blue 72 graphite shaft; 15° with Aldila RIP Phenom 80 shaft; 15° with Mitsubishi Diamana D+ White 82 shaft
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: An improved center of gravity location contributes to lower spin and improved launch conditions for longer carry. The adjustable hosel allows for independent loft and lie adjustments.

PROS
PLAYABILITY:
One of the more workable models; provides a consistent, boring trajectory; excellent low-spin shots off the tee and good out of the rough.
DISTANCE: Adequate yardage from the tee or fairway; several testers get length comparable to their own gamer.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Spot on the target when struck well; you get what you deserve—doesn't lose a ton of distance when hit away from the sweet spot.
FEEL: Very little twisting or bad vibration at impact; nice sense of propulsion off the clubface without being jarring or overly loud.
LOOK: One of the clear favorites; rewarding, solid sensation at impact that lets you know you've hit it well; never harsh but easy to tell where you missed it.

CONS
Not the longest fairway wood; could be more directionally forgiving; less accomplished players might struggle with trajectory.

BOTTOM LINE: A very good-looking stick that provides all-around performance, highlighted by feel and shot-shaping ability.
