Recent analyses of the collective mode data in both the A and B phases of superfluid 3He suggest that the f-wave pairing interaction is attractive and large enough to lead to observable shifts in the frequencies of the real squashing mode of 3He-B and the clapping mode of 3He-A. Here I consider the possibility that f-wave pairing correlations exist in the ordered phases of 3He, with or without further reduction in symmetry, as a result of an attractive f-wave pairing interaction.
