Bought a 7 wood today to replace my 6 iron that I have struggled to hit consistently. I'll put it in play tomorrow 

I love my 7w!! Which one did you go with?

That is a tough one. I also have the Ping 4 Hybrid and its a love hate relationship that goes back and fourth. The past few weeks it has been my most consistent club, other times it has been the club I won't even look at on the course. Either way, the solution is almost always buy more gear. What 9 wood are you looking at?

I had a love/hate relationship with all my hybrids. Finally, I gave up and went with a 7 wood replacement for my 4 iron. I've been happy ever since and then I also learned to use the 4 iron giving me different club choices depending on the course I'm playing - low running shots (4 iron) or high "soft" landing shots (7 wood). 

Only a thought not a suggestion!

Going to try a 6 hybrid to cover the gap between my 5 iron and my 5 hybrid.
The 3 hybrid is close to demotion as I'm hitting the 7 wood a little better and the same distance

Ok my ping 4 hybrid is trying its hardest to get thrown out of the bag. Do I dare go 9 wood? Try something else? And leaving it out isn't an option and would leave me with a 20-25 plus yard gap.

Maybe im just looking to buy something but I know my confidence with that club is at an all time low.

I'm right there with you. I just don't hit an iron consistently enough or a hybrid high enough.

I'm in a similar spot - not using my 5W a lot (but love my 7W; tried but didn't like a 9W) - and just bought a 3H (Cobra King Tec) on sale that may (or may not) replace it).

My Ping 425 7 wood is as dependable as any club in my bag with exception of putter. I am literally thinking of turning the loft all the way up and getting either a new G430 7 wood or probably the new AI smoke 7 wood which seems to have a little more distance than the Ping in the videos I have watched . They will both be  a 7 wood but should have a good distance gap, if not I have a spare Ping shaft I can cut an inch off of if I have to.

Up or down? I have a G430 7 wood turned down to 19 both because I wanted a little length and they look very closed to me at address if not. It's filling an excellent gap at 240-250 for me right now.

I bought the D3 new and still use it. It's a great driver. Nice, easy swings get me 270+ yds and relatively little left or right deviation (most of the time).

I bought the new VGP01 and just got it in the mail today. I'm itching to use it and compare it to my odyssey lab stroke mallet.

Been looking to replace my 3 hybrid as my Mavrik keeps going right. After trying a few I bought a Cobra King TecIMG_5815.jpeg.8a8de3d03936e32fbb9f1d11d39584a8.jpegIMG_5812.jpeg.ccaf3f81f6364dc72911f4cd6584c163.jpeg

Took it to the range last night for its first outing and all I can say is wow!

Averaged 210 yards with it, great flight and straight so looking forward to getting on the course with it
