Here's another new fairway wood that just arrived a few weeks ago at TSG, the new 2013 TourStage X-FW in 13.5* loft attached to the upgrade Graphite Design Tour AD GT-7 Stiff flex shaft. I'm only 2 rounds into it and already know it's not going to be my gamer although I sure wish I had the game for it because it's really something else. What can I say it's X-SERIES... that means it will be for the faster swinging better ball striking golfer especially in 13.5*.
Bridgestone actually trademarked a new material used in the manufacturing of this fairway wood called "Ultimate Strong Metal" Yes I know very cheesy Japanesey but its supposed to be able to maintain very high energy transfer, its thin and light but also very durable. The reason why I said I couldn't game this was purely my game, I don't have the ball striking skills to hit this with full confidence. I know a lot of golfers that absolutely could and I wouldn't hesitate suggesting this as one of their options. I hit two par 5's in 2 in a single day which is a rarity for me and oddly after i hit poor drives. This could be that life saver if you find yourself in a position having to carry a revine or arroyo or perhaps needing play it safe hitting a long tight accurate club from the tee box.
