Lynx Black Cat Tour fairway wood

This week’s equipment guide focuses on a selection of fairway woods that retail at £100 or below. So, if you are keen to make that extra distance count as the new season approaches, or if you simply need greater control from the tee, take a look at the following products:

MD Golf Seve Icon fairway wood- £99.99

The MD Golf Seve Icon fairway wood has a shallower face than previous fairway wood designs, which lowers the centre of gravity to produce a higher flight. Like the Icon driver, extra weight is placed low and deep in the head to improve stability.

Kasco K2K fairway wood – £99.99

Six weights are placed in the heel of the club to help prevent a slice. A shallow head is designed to cut through a variety of lies.

The Innovator X Fairbrids are designed to fit between the driver and the 5-iron, maintaining a similar shape and look throughout. Each model has a wide body to increase Moment of Inertia and therefore improve forgiveness.

Hippo ITX2 - £59.99

Deep-faced head design that uses graphite in the crown and steel in the face and sole. The former allows extra head weight in lower rear to improve launch angle while the latter promises crisp impact feel.
