PRGR 2015 Egg Fairway Wood – Based on the famous PRGR Egg 2nd generation the now 4th iteration of this popular fairway wood has taken technology to an entirely different level. PRGR has adopted a new CFRP carbon crown to reduce weight and lower the CG point compared to metal this CFRP crown also flexes to help get the ball higher with less spin. Ready for more pics and our take on the new Egg Spoon? Please follow the jump…
PRGR has reduced the face length making the head slightly smaller than it’s predecessor combined with evolving the face height and shape these two features spread the sweet spot over a larger percentage of the face and PRGR claims the spot is now 20% bigger. Within the head there is a 2 piece floating weight structure which helps the ball get up especially for the 15 degree spoon.
Made with a new ES235 Maraging rolled Steel Face and press molded CRFP carbon crown + SUS630 body. It is available in 15/18/20* lofts with any of PRGR’s carbon shafts matched to the swing speed.
As you can see the head is a little more condensed while the center of the face gets deeper than the 2nd gen egg. Hold it in hand and you can tell the Egg series has developed into some cutting edge and very scientific design. fit and finish is prime grade as well.
In the image below the new PRGR Egg 2015 at address just makes me happy reminiscent of the 2nd gen which was long easy to hit and unique, the new one is also I’ve had the new Egg series for almost 2 weeks now and can share my thoughts.
It’s more forgiving high and low on the face where the 2nd gen did well out on the toe and heel, my misses are high and low so this one worked really well for me.
There is a large segment of players that have issues with 3 woods especially deeper faced 3 woods and they should get along with these pretty well despite the face depth as it is very good at getting the ball up quickly. There is also a segment of players who although being able to hit the woods well have an issue with FW’s that have a big footprint or are oversized where they bounce off the grown before making contact with the ball and for them this head is not oversized, fairly small footprint so no slapping the ground at all with this new egg.
One issue is with shaft selection, PRGR likes to offer their own shafts and they do make great ones and while I frequently hit clubs with stock shafts I still always prefer my favorites which are : new or old FW80, the new FW50, and the TRPX Type S Red Hot. What I would suggest for golfers like myself is inquire to [email protected] to discuss your custom build and get a quote, good thing is these new Egg Fairways are not all that expensive costing about 300 bucks so an upgrade shaft is possible without it going into driver price territory.
