Great thread Hoyomac, I do not game a 7 wood, but I raised my Cobra King F8 3W from 14.5 to 16.0 and my Cobra King F8 5W from 18.0 to 20.0. Holy moly what a difference. I hit them higher and farther than before. Maybe a 7 wood is in my future.

I can't recommend a 7wood enough.  I'm a slower swing speed than you--aboit 87-89 driver Last year I was fit at PING for the long game.  And I ended up with a G410 7 and 9 wood.  The 7 wood is my

Well due to my recent injuries I have had to revamp my equipment some. I recently replaced the shaft in my TM V-steel 7 wood that I have had for 15 years or so. I ended up putting a A flex Diamana I h

After experimenting with the Fujikura Fuel Red 60 gram stiff shaft in my Ping G410 LST 10.5 degree driver I have gone back to the Alta CB 55 Red Stiff shaft because I get more distance with the standard shaft and similar dispersion.

After my 7 wood experience, also with Tour Edge, I am doing the exact same thing.  I have the Tensei blue shaft and love it.  Bought a 3 and 5 wood to match ( and similar feel/results) and the driver should arrive tomorrow.  


I am just curious, how much distance did you lose in your driver? I am really liking all my woods feeling the same.

I put a 7 wood in the bag this year. I went TSi2 and have it set to the lowest lofted and most open setting. So that should put it at 20.25 degrees. I put a ventus red shaft in it and it has been great. I love the high flight I get out of it. I have hit it both off the tee and from the fairway a couple times and it has been a great add. It previously had a utility in the bag (still do actually) but it was a bit of a one trick pony. I could hit if off the fairway with a perfect lie and off the tee it was a missile launcher. But I could pretty much just hit it hard. 

The 7 wood adds some versatility to that spot. I put the utility into the next spot in my bag and it seems to serve that purpose well there. So kinda the best of both worlds. I hit the 7 wood about 10-15 yards longer than the utility in current set up.

Need some help, advice and some ideas.
Here is my issue:
The most challenging clubs in my bag for me to hit from the fairway or rough are 4 iron, 4 hybrid, and 4 wood. Yes, I’ve been fit for all of the clubs, so not trying to start a “just get fitted” response avalanche. My trajectory on all my clubs tend to be low as I tend to de-loft the club and play with a draw most of the time.  But on these clubs they are low bullets at best.  From the tee is a different story as I can get height on them most of the time. It is rare for me to hit any of these clubs in a round more than once or twice. Mainly due to a lack of confidence with them. Most comfortable with the 4 hybrid, Titleist 818 H1 21deg.  With 16g weight cartridge set at maximum fade and I still draw the ball with it. Titleist TMB 4 iron, Tour Edge Exotics EX10 4 wood.
My current GHIN index is 8.5 and I have played 162 times in the last 12 months. So I play a lot and practice quite a bit too. Arccos Caddie says my smart distance with Driver is 242 yards. Ping G410 LST 10.5 set at small + with the Alta CB 55 Red stiff shaft. Driver swing speed is 97 MPH. 6 iron is my usual 170 - 180 yard club with good height.  5 iron is lower height than the 6 and more runout but more reliable than the trio of 4’s.
What I’m trying to solve:
I really need a 200 yard club with some height.  I can hit low runners no problem.  If I have any kind of long carry over a hazard or water I won’t try it if I can’t hit my 6 iron. 
I hit a friend’s 7 wood the other day and just smoked it with lots of height.  
What I want to know:
I’m curious anyone else using a 7 wood?  How is it working for you?  Why do you use it.   Which one are using? 

The other club I know a few guys on here love is the super hybrid from callaway. I switched to a 4 hybrid from a 4 iron for that exact shot as well and it’s worked out well so far. I would try a more compact hybrid if you’re struggling getting it out of the rough.

I had such good results with the Fujikura Fuel Red shaft that I had to try it in my driver and was able to get the shaft for about $50.  

When I put the Fujikura Fuel Red shaft in my driver what I found was that the extra length of the shaft and the slightly lighter weight of the club head made it play stiffer than it did in the fairway woods.  Also the Alta shaft is counter balanced and so there was a swing weight difference as well.  I played around with the head weight by getting both lighter and heavier weights to replace the standard adjustable weight and also did some experimenting with shaft length and found that after a lot of trial and error I couldn’t improve on what I already had.

The new Fujikura Ventus Velocore Red shaft is very intriguing to me, but I’m not in a hurry right now to try it because I’ve been hitting my driver pretty well. The $300 price tag is also a bit of a deterrent too.
