I expected to get a 5 Fairway wood.

Summary: I decided to keep it, because I like the way it is so forgiving and such a good feel. I am still looking for a 4 Fairway wood. If you find one, please let me know. Right-handed and a women's. Thanks.Must be a Callaway Diable Octane!
Summary: It really has never produced a nice shot for me. It doesn't seem to hit well off the fairway and It is pretty inconsistent with distance. It could very well be me, but this is the only club in my bag I don't ever really want to use. I usually just hit my hybrid when faced with the distance this club would be used for. I give up distance doing that, but at least I know I will hit it long and straight unlike with this club.
Summary: Everything about this purchase was great except for the club. I am a true believer in Callaway products...I am also a pretty good golfer...76 this morning with a witness, but I find that this club not only feels hard at impact, but it is very difficult to get any loft with it. Even hitting it off of a "T" does not get much air. I would think those with a swing speed of 120mph would be better suited for this...mine is 112mph and just not enough.
Summary: Because its a 15 degree - you have to hit it dead right. But it delivers fairly well - I'm a hacker so if I hit it right on I can get 210-220 out of the fairway. Arrived quickly and in excellent condition.
