Seven wood anyone?

What does spine and FLO aligned mean?  Thanks.

Basically the theory is that all shafts have a hard spine and that if you orient the spine correctly when gluing the shaft you can get more consistent delivery of the club at impact.   The trademarked name is Puring.   Spine and Flo is the generic name for the processes.

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.

Now, having played with the 7 wood for several rounds, I must say that I love the club.  Works really well out of the rough and on downhill lies.  Really love hitting it and I already have a lot of confidence in it.

I recently got more honest about what I needed in my bag vs what I thought I wanted.  Over the last couple months, I have replaced my 4 iron with a 4 hybrid.  For me that's about a 190-195yrd carry.  My 3 wood carry is about 220-225 off the tee.  I'd love to be able to hit it well off the deck, but the reality is that it just doesn't work most of the time.  While I really like my 4 hybrid, it has a pretty long roll out.  I tried a driving iron, but that was worse for roll, and harder to hit.  Eventually after me trying to make something work, my fitter had me try a 7 wood.  Magic!  It carries around 200-205 for me, but the landing angle is almost what my 7 iron is, and it's way way easier to hit off the deck than my 3 wood.  I've only had it in the bag for a couple of rounds so far, but it is fast becoming a go to club.

7 Wood is the ticket for many of us! 😍 I have the Cleveland Launcher XL 7 Wood and occasionally sleep with it... 😉

I think it's worth it to at least try in a fitting.  I hit a 3H and 7W about the same carry, but the 7w is a much steeper landing angle.  I feel like I am much more confident stopping the ball on the green with it.

ok, ok, ok.....   no w i need to find a bargain or used 7W--I have fallen out of love with the 3H and the 4 iron is inconsistent from the fairway.   after reading this....  well i guess I know what I need to do and the question is who gives up their spot....

Yep....started using a Callaway Heavenwood about 5-6 years ago.  The only reason that I replaced it was because I found the Ping G410 7 wood.....either one of them are money.  Then....I actually got flat out crazy and experimented with a Ping G425 9 wood (24 degrees).  That club is money as well.  The only reason that it is not in my gamer bag is because I discovered the Sub 70 699 Pro Utility 4 iron.  I had it bent to 24 degrees and it gives me a few more options.....plus I consistently hit it well...which has not been the case for long irons.  But...if I had not found that Sub 70 Utility iron.....the ping 9 wood would definitely be in the bag beside the 7 wood.

 

Golf is a lot more fun when I don't stress, standing over the ball.  The 7 and 9 woods removed that stress.

Added a Makser 7 wood and a 9 wood to my Makser 3 and 5 woods years ago, but these Makser 3, 5, 7, and 9 woods were replaced with Taylormade 3, 4, 5, and 6 hybrids because these hybrids were consistently straighter.

II prefer a wood design vs a hybird.  In my opinion the hybird is are more of a iron swing(divot) while that is different from that of a wood.  I’m a sweeper, so a fairway wood is better suited to my swing.  But, I’m not a teaching pro, only offering my opinion, as to what works for me.

As I see it, try it out and see how it feels for you. Even if a few yards are lost but you increase your consistency thus confidence, you are ahead of the game.

I'm thinking of selling mine. It's a great club, Cobra F6.. I love my three iron too much to pull it out of the bag so it just sits most of the time. If you're interested shoot me a message and I'll figure out what it's worth to me as well as send you some pictures.

I picked up a Callaway Rogue 7 wood to replace a 21 degree hybrid.  Much better carry distance and slightly better total distance (220 vs 215).  Really easy to get airborne.  This club is great out of the rough!

Does appear to be closed but is actually square to the target line.  I have to trust the line and play the ball toward the middle of my stance.

 I also added a 5 wood that is easy to hit off of the fairway but only about 10 yards longer than the 7 wood.

Enjoy your search.

See if you can find a G410 7 wood anywhere.  That model is one of the easiest FW to hit ever.  I will have mine in tbr bag for 3 years in April.  Unheard of for any club of mine.  Ha 

I know I'm a little late to the party on this but the Ping G and G30 fairways are also really easy to hit. They can be had at a good price in the used market, yet hold their value well. So, if you don't like them, you can often sell them again for pretty much exactly what you paid for them. 

I got a bag full of Cobras.... Well, not the putter... yet.

Thanks---I just picked up a HeavenWood which I saw available locally.  It may be a better fit for me vs a 7W considering what I would like to accomplish with it.  I will give it a try soon.  thanks again
