Seven wood anyone?

Assuming you have a 58-60° wedge already I would say the UW would be used more frequently but I don't know your game.

🧐 Sorry for possible confusion. I mean a Callaway UW vs traditional 7 wood (sub70)

Just changed my woods and hybrids this week. Dropped my Ping G410 5W and 4-5-6H for G425 5W, 7W & 9W. I hit my G425 driver 230 yds for comparisons, and just couldn't get my 4H in the air. My 5H was OK and I never used the 6H, as I prefer my i500 6 iron. Off the tee I hit my 4H 185 yds, and off the ground I'm hitting the 7W 185 yds! The 9 is going 175 yds, with the 5W at 200 yds. Plus the height and soft landings are great. Glad I made the changes.

I've been using playing an older Cleveland Launcher 7-wood for years now and absolutely love it but I just bought a new Tour Edge C721 7-wood and really like this one too. The Cleveland Launcher has a more compact head which I prefer but the idea of this whole thing is I can hit about 200 yards and it's flight is high and lands soft. And, I can maneuver the flight from straight to a little draw to a slight fade. Very useful club and highly recommend you give it a try.

Hi HAC!  I’m a lefty, as well!  I understand your pain!  I, too, have been struggling with my 3h.  This year I pulled it out of my bag and added a 7w.  I am plying a Callaway Rogue ST Max and I am loving it. It is about 5-10 yards longer than my old 3h, but I am ok with that.  Previously, I had about a 30 yard gap from my 3h to my 5w.  It has improved my gapping as well.  Much easier to hit consistently.  I’m still gaming a 4h.

I just bought a Callaway divine 9 on eBay for $20 as an experiment to find a reliable 165-175 club that falls from the sky. I’m just not reliable with the 5 iron often enough

Yup, I dropped 5 iron 2years ago and now thinking dropping the 6 iron on my next set.  
I better not get any older or I’ll only have hybrids 😱

Because I am a tinkerer, I have been experimenting with my 3 wood loft at 16° and my 5 wood loft at 19°.  Maybe similar to playing a 4 wood and a 6 wood (if there is such a club????).  So far, I am liking the the higher lofts in my fairway woods.
