I finally got to hit one this past Friday evening and was blown away by it. I don't know my distance, as I just hit it out on a range without specified yardages, but it seemed like the ball just carried on forever. I bought the driver, but I will no doubt be adding the 3 wood to my bag in the very near future. If I had gotten my hands on the 3 wood before ordering my driver, I may have just went with the 3 wood. AWESOME 3 wood!
Bag: Ogio Grom
Driver: Taylormade RBZ 9.5*
Hybrids: Adams Black Super Hybrid 17*
Irons: Cobra S3 Pro 3-PW
Wedges: Nike SV 56* & 60*
Putter: Cleveland Classic Platinum #1
Ball: Bridgestone e6

Not a knock on anyone, but if you also look, most golfers with higher handicaps are very capable of hitting fairway woods much better than drivers. Until this past couple of years, I would take my 260+ off the tee with 4 wood because my driver only went 250 with less accuracy. Now that I'm better, I'm consistently good with my driver and can bomb it like the rest of my clubs.

Basically just saying that sometimes people just hit fairway woods better than drivers, so that can have a lot to do with the distance difference.
