The Pinhawk Fairway Woods (Pinhawk SLF) were designed especially for single length players to complement the Pinhawk Irons and/or Pinhawk Hybrids. All three fairway woods are to be played at the same length (41 1/2 inches is standard - but you can build to other lengths).
As is true with the Pinhawk irons and hybrids, consistency is what will improve in your game. We believe you will find these woods to be truly point-and-shoot! You'll find the low center of gravity gets the ball up quickly and easily with a perfect trajectory.
Testing has proven the loft gapping on these to be a perfect 4 degrees between clubs. Anything under that would simply not be enough, it compresses your distances, and just doesn't make design sense. These are tooled SPECIFICALLY for single length. Other companies may jump on this bandwagon and try to slap a badge on a foundry model that is the typical 3 degrees separation between clubs (regular fairways basically) - don't fall for it. Again, these are designed and tooled the right way!
Fine-tuned perimeter weighting also gives these woods maximum forgiveness. Your ball position stays the same, your stance stays the same, and your spine angle stays the same. Same proven single-length technology, with the same swing on the same plane, with the same feel for each fairway wood. Now you can have not only more consistency in your iron play, but also more consistency in your fairway wood play.
The bottom line result for golfers of all skill levels will be an increase in consistent ball striking and accuracy. This is a common sense approach to play your best golf. And to put your mind at ease if it's important to you, the USGA has ruled that the Pinhawk SLF Fairway Woods conform to the rules of golf, and you can see that here.

Who are these clubs for?
These clubs are great for both beginners and experienced golfers since the underlying idea behind single length clubs is to reduce the complexity of the game which makes golf more fun for everyone — even your friends and that group behind yours that appreciates not having to wait for you to find your ball every other hole.
Look & Feel
These fairway woods have the classic teardrop shape with a glossy black finish on top. The bottom of the clubs are silver-metallic and feature the loft and racing stripes in black.
The feel when hitting the ball is rock-solid, with a flush hit registering zero jarring. This buttery feel could be partially due to my somewhat unorthodox choice of shafts — I went with the True Temper Dynamic Gold Parallel Woods Steel S300 127g stiff shafts.
The choice of a steel shaft was the result of my typical miss with my Callaway XR 3 Wood (graphite shaft), which was 2-3 degrees open to path, resulting in a moderate slice on a mishit. With the steel stiff shaft on the Pinhawk SLF woods, my typical miss was only 1 degree open to path, resulting in a slight cut, but still in the fairway — I expect that this will enable me to hit more fairways!
