Seven wood anyone?


HAC

Recommended Posts

Been carrying a Ping Tisi Tec 7 for years. 180-190 yards. Have a low iron trajectory so it helps a lot. Should be able to find used pretty cheap. Let my 23 yr old hit my Tisi 5 and he had me find him one hit it better than new stuff.

I've toyed with a 7 wood numerous times, however I always end up back with a driving iron of some sorts. Off the tee the 7 woods in the past have flown just way too high and I have trouble hitting my windows with it.

In my bag:

Driver: :cobra-small: Speedzone Xtreme 9.0* Fujikura Motore X F1 6X

Wood: :cobra-small: Speedzone Tour Fujikura Motore X F1 7X

Hybrids: :cobra-small: King Utility 19.5* Diamana Tensei White Pro 90TX

Irons: :srixon-small: Srixon ZX5 4-6 (1 degree weak), ZX7 7-PW Project X 6.5

Wedges: :taylormade-small: Milled Grind 3 50*, 54*, 58* Tour Issue S400

Putter: :seemore-small: Nashville Z1C 34"

 Ball: :bridgestone-small: Tour B X

I love my 7 wood. I also have a 4 hybrid and a 7 wood that are 10 yards apart. I use the 4 hybrid to keep it low when needed and the 7 wood to go high when needed. I can choke up and take 10 yards off of either club and open the 7 for an even higher shot that also goes 10 yards shorter. Wood is a Callaway Epic and the hybrid is a 2019 Big Bertha. Both are adjustable.

I play driver, 5 wood and 7 wood.  I just ordered a new Rogue Max 7 with Adila Rogue White 30 MSI 60 Graphite.  I may put a strong 3 wood in the bag and drop one of my 3 wedges depending on course, but this should do for now.  I think.

I will be testing Callaway 7 woods a week from Saturday.  You guys have me excited to try these out.

I suspect if you need a club to launch high off the deck, and also tee off with maybe a little more than 4 iron distance, you'll be happy.  At least that's my profile.

I say go for it, I put a 7 wood in the bag and it's been the best thing I've ever done. they have a higher flight than a hybrid, more spin than a hybrid which helped hold greens alot better. I say do it. check out the tsi2

The Cleveland Launcher Halo 7 wood is so easy to launch and if you do hit it a little chunky the glide rails on the bottom are money.  Did I say it was lonnnnnnnnnnng too!

Ended up ordering a PXG 0311 Gen5 7 wood.  Got to demo it at my club and then went to a PXG store that is local (well, about 45 minutes away) to get fit (they are running purchase through my club so I just have to go 5 minutes away to get it).  Should get it soon, I hope.  Thanks everyone for all the help.  This thread has been tremendously helpful to me.  

Next decision.  Whether to replace my 6 iron with a 6 hybrid.  Don't expect to make that decision for a while.  Trying lessons first.

So you go from the 3-hy-wood to the 7?  Is the gapping any issue?  I currently have a 5-wood and 7-wood that I love hitting, but I hate my 3-wood (just for inconsistency-level).  Was thinking about adding the 3 hy-wood and keeping the 7, (so, 18-degree 3, 23-degree 7) and then just keeping my 6-PW (6 is 25 degree loft).  I've been worried about adding the 3 (my 5 is 20 degrees), but realized I don't NEED to keep the 5 in the bag if the gapping works out okay. 

TOO MANY THOUGHTS 😉

No problem for me withe the hy-wood & 7 wood combo. I use my hy-wood for longer than 200 yard shots and it produces more of a piercing ball flight and roll. The 7 - wood produces those nice high shots that land like a butter fly with sore feet. I love having both in my bag and also the 7 wood with the rails on the bottom produces shots that go much further than you would imagine on those chunky shots.

Have used a 7 and 9 wood for over 20 years because they don’t run as much as an iron with the same distance in the air. Tried this because Vijay used a specially altered 7 wood back then. Their trajectories are higher than my hybrids with the same face degree.

Been Thinking about getting a 7W as have been thinking about. Stuffing my 5 I & replacing w/ 7W. 

Started hitting HRH's 7W last year >Real Good< Somehow a String was attached. Geez; always is HRH's!!

Anyway going to 7W & a 5 HyBird!! Am now dreaming AH-Ching - AH-Ching with my fellow Fossil Friends!!

Got a Cleveland 7 W & am playing it real good!! Ditched all Hybirds & went with a "Rescue" Wood & 7W. 

Now if I could get my Driver to go on the Fwy. I definitely would be "Ticking Off" my Playing Partners!!

A few months back I joined the 7 wood club with a ping G400. The good shots had me hooked on the 7 wood performance capabilities. Although the shaft is a tad longer than a hybrid, distance wasn't much different, but the ability to send the ball to the moon and land like a marshmallow with a parachute was pretty awesome. My only complaint was that the Ping G400 sat too closed for me and did have a tendency to go left on the regular and found myself having to manipulate the shot too often. I then swapped the G400 for a cobra F8 5-6 wood and have the loft cranked to 21° and this thing has been everything I could hope for. Hits moon missiles with ease and sits square even with the loft maxed. It's a perfect par 5 2nd hitter and even off the tee when trying to navigate a minefield par 4. 

IMO the 7 or high lofted woods are worth every penny and deserve a spot in the bag.

Yes 7 wood for sure! I got a TM last year at my buddy’s member guest event. I took the 4 iron out of the bag. I can really move it either off the tee or from the fairway. I have a M2 5 wood and hardly hit it. I think a nine wood might be next. I never liked the looks of a hybrid.

That exactly what I did just last week, only have 1/2 round on it. But that club went from an afterthought to a “what have I got here?” club. I kinda bought it on accident on eBay when I put a $50 bid on it so I could follow, but nobody ever bid again, so I got it. It’s beat up, but functions perfectly. Now it’s my 175-180 moonshot.

Take a look at the Callaway Apex UW, it's something of a cross between a fairway wood and a hybrid.  I've only had mine for a couple of weeks, but it could become a go to club for me.

Right now, I play a 5 wood and two hybrids.  I really like my 25 degree hybrid but am inconsistent with my 21 degree hybrid.  I am thinking of demoing a 7 wood this year to replace the 21 degree hybrid.  Has anyone done this and do they go about the same distance?

Note, my biggest issue in this is not too many companies make 7 woods in left-handed clubs.  So, we will see if this works out.  I usually end up with some shop credit over the course of the year as a result of senior events at my club, so the cost likely won't be too much if I do this later in the year.  Last year, I think I got about $200 or so for the cost of $35 joining the senior group - we have over 80 members of the senior group, but in a given week, generally only about 30 members play.  So, the guys who play these events regularly tend to come out ahead (the events are based on net scores and mostly as part of a team).

It could be the shaft in your 21* hybrid just needs to be spine and FLO aligned. I did this work for a playing partner and his hrbrid went from couldn't hit it to now being one of his favorite clubs. And it's a LOT less expansive to have the shaft aligned then it is to buy a new club that may or mayNOT work any better than what you have.
