I wouldn't worry about it. It is such a small difference CC wise that I can't even tell looking down at them. They both look the same size. I played the 3wd and 5wd today and used the 5wd a few times throughout the round and just a little higher flight then the 4+wd and of course a little shorter distance. Now some of that maybe the shafts cause the stock shafts are different so can't really say apples to apples but not very far off either way! I will say both stock shafts are very nice though and seem to match up with the head very well. As far as teeing it up, just remember it is a fairway so the tee and ball need to be very low like your hitting an iron off the tee and you will be fine with either. P.S. Since I am sticking with my 4+ wood and hybrid combo, I can make you a deal on the 3wd and 5wd set!!! :)

Actually the 4+ wood is 16 degrees not 17 so it is two degrees less than the 5 wood at 18. Also the 4+ wood is the same length as the 5 wood not the 3 wood in the Steelhead's case! Both at 42.5 inches, 3 wood at 43 inches. I use the 4+ wood and like it alot. I too also have a 4H as my next club. It is easy to hit off the deck or tee so if you can hit a 3 wood off the deck, I would not worry at all about the 4+ wood. I had used a 5 wood prior to that but I have played a 4 wood or a 4+ wood for a long time and never felt the need to carry a 3 wood and 5 wood anymore. Now I just go driver, 4+ wood, 4H at 22 degrees. I haven't found much distance difference using a 4+ or 5 wood really over the 3 wood. There is some but not enough for me to carry one and worry about it. Maybe I just don't play on long enough courses! :) I am in the process of trying out a 3H at 19 degrees what would fit perfectly between the 16 degree 4+ and 22 degree 4H. So far I love the club but really don't think I need it as I can get the job done without any issues between the 4+ and 4H clubs. I traded in some other gear and got the 3, 4+ and 5 wood in the Steelhead XR's but never used the 3 wood or 5 wood yet! The 4+ does what I need so the other two just sit here!
