I was little apprehensive about buying this club. I had hit a demo indoors with a launch monitor off astroturf and it produced decent numbers but nothing really off the charts. After taking it out on to the course and range it was a whole different story. It's almost a hybrid because of the sole design but it's attached to a fairway wood shaft. The results are amazing, long, straight and forgiving. I hit the 16 deg with a regular flex shaft about 230 which, for me, is ridiculous. I will say that the light shaft did take some getting used to, I don't know how the stiff flex plays but it seems smoother, slower swings are rewarded much better than faster more aggressive swipes at it. I had been struggling to find a fairway wood I could hit off the deck because I do like to take a bit of a divot. The sole design of the tight lies lets me do just that though. I will also say that the tight lies has a more compact head and face when compared to other 3 and 4 woods and that initially worried me but those worries are all gone. The compact head frames the ball nicely, again, almost hybrid-esque, and the results are fantastic. As with all reviews I suggest you take this with a grain of salt, just because I like it doesn't mean you will. I highly recommend trying before buying and not just in the store, take a demo out at least to the range and preferably out onto the course. That's the real test. This was just my experience. Hope this helps. Rockbottom rocks as usual.
Pros:Long and forgiving
