I have owned the 3,5, and 7 woods and the 3 wood is the only one I kept. The Burner St wood is large in head size, and provides assurance for mid to high handicappers. Carpenter steel face has excellent feel at impact. The shaft is 50 grams light to help out the slower swinger, but not good for the high swing speeds. Note there is a built in draw bias, therefore hooks can occur for some players. I found the 5 and 7 woods too large and too light. Not very playable from all turf conditions. But the 3 wood fits my game. For better players, I recommend the TP version. The TP version is smaller sized, neutral biased, and has a heavier shaft.

I've never ordered a club via the internet - I've always tried them at a local store before buying, so there was a bit of trepidation while waiting for it to arrive. To be honest, I have the Burner driver, so I expected the same excellent quality. I didn't get a chance to take it to the range when it arrived, so it was straight to the course. The very first shot went straight & true, around 220 yards. I'm a 20 handicapper, not a tour-caliber player, and have trouble with fairway woods occasionally. I hit several more shots that day, with the same result. Awesome club!
The packaging was another story. The box was HUGE - 4' x 3' x 6", broken ope at ome corner, some paper stuffed in the box. Very poorly done. Fortunately, the club was still in the box, and undamaged. I would have expected a much smaller box, or perhaps a tube, to better protect the contents.
