In addition to TaylorMade's RocketBallz Stage 2 Tour (profiled in the Jan. 30 issue of Golf Digest STIX), the following adjustable fairway woods can help you take more control of your game.

Adams SUPER LS
:
Multi-material fairway wood has 16 settings for loft/face angle and length.

Callaway RAZR FIT XTREME: Adjustable from 2 degrees open to 1 degree closed. Open setting also reduces loft by 1 degree; closed setting adds 1degree.

Cobra AMP CELL: The 3-4wood model can be adjusted from 13 to 16 degrees with two draw settings, and the 5-7 wood ranges from 17 to 20 degrees with two draw settings. Available in four head colors.

Nike VR_S Covert Tour: The 3- and 5-wood models can be adjusted to five lofts each.
