Seven wood anyone?

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

I now understand....   wow the heavenwood is just a treat.   I can't compare to a 7W because I never had one in my hands, but the heavenwood is just a pleasure to swing--smooth and workable.   I was able to do a lot with it --high and long and effortless.  I know this was at the range and it may not be so easy "when it counts", but I can see a lot of places and cases where this can be "the answer" off the tee on some holes or a long shot from the fairway.

I just went to Roger Dunn to swing some 7 woods, but they didn’t have many available for hitting. But they had a Halo, and that was such an easy club to hit, but it just went a little too far for what I was looking for. I think an epic max 7 wood will be the deal. They did have a “heavenwood “ and that was longer like the Halo. There was a nice ping 425 9 wood, but that was just a little short…

Updated my bag with PXG 0211 5 & 7 woods, dropped my 3 W and 9 W.  Am very happy with results as I only used my 3W a couple times per round. The PXG’s  are awesome.

So something I am noticing, it is hard to come back for stock 80g class shafts for 7 woods. You can direct order from callaway for one but PXG you cant unless you pay an upcharge.

I'm considering replacing my #4 Hybrid with a 7 wood. I had a Warbird Heavenwood and Divine Nine back in the 90's and loved them. Why I traded them is beyond me!

I have been carrying a Titleist 7 wood, 915, after getting fitted by Titleist during a 3 wood fitting. I had not found a Hybird that I could hit until the 7 wood. Still in my bag today, not leaving anytime soon.

Sounds like everybody who answered is in a good 7w.  I think some guy on PGA Tour uses one.  Gretsky's drinking pal.

He also has a 9-wood 😲

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).

I have a LH Tour Edge 7 wood that I picked up USED few years ago.  Great club!

Callaway makes a Rogue 7 wood for left handed golfers.  I bought mine for a shot over water from a downhill lie from a 3 hybrid distance.  I can fly the 7 wood almost as far as I hit the 3 hybrid including a lot of roll.  Love it!

I went to my local club fitter and he replaced by my hybrids (3,4) with a 7 wood. I couldn't be happier!!! Not only was able to gain an extra wedge but absolutely love having a consistent 190yd club.

I've played 4 and 5 hybrids in the past, but misses were hooks and pulls.  After a year of better ball striking, I put a 4 utility build and 5 iron back into play.  I don't play the 7 wood from the rough, but love it from tight lies or off the tee.  Distances are 210-220.  No more hook misses and pulls are less than hybrids.

Check out the Sims 7 wood I believe there is a left handed model

I use an 18⁰ Titleist TSi. Sort of 7 woodish. Hit it straight and high. Have hit it 240 yds., but usually in the 225 yd. range. My hybrid is a 22⁰ Taylormade SLDR. I hit it lower and usually with a slight draw. Hit it in the 185-200 yd. range. I'm a 9 handicap, 74 years old. Play Callaway Apex DCB irons, ping G400 driver, Cleveland Razor wedges. The TSi is my go to club. Love it.

The good and bad with my Srixon ZX 7 wood is that I can hit a boomerang hook with it when I need to... and I can hit a boomerang hook with it when I'm not trying to.  Haha. 

But it completely change my confidence in the middle of my bag.  A 7 wood is definitely worth a look if you aren't in sync with a hybrid, or want towering height for steep angles into tight greens.

Hi All,

I have been using a Tour Edge 7W for the last two seasons.  I picked it up for two reason:

1.  Lack of elevation and distance with a 4 hybrid.

2.  A multitude of fairway bunkers on my home course.

What really closed the deal for me was a shot from a steep fairway bunker that landed on the green from around 160 yards out.  Quite a surprisinf result.

Reached out to sub70 about a potential build for me. Wont be buying until closer to the start of next season but want to be certain on what i am getting. The one thing that worries me is that is may be too spiny. I liked the PXG ones with the 3 adjustable weights (and the proto which had a forward weight) but they do not have any 80g shaft options that are not $200+.

Talked with Jason today. When the time comes to order I’ll roll with the 7w in the Adila NV 85x shaft tipped an extra 1/4” to prevent hooks. Also came to the conclusion that I am hooking my hybrid because it is a soft stepped XS shaft. This makes me wonder if the tip stiffness of my irons is causing me the hooks in the longer clubs. May need a fitting check once my off-season of gym work and speed gains are done.

If you're open to other brands, you might want to check with Tour Edge.  The E722 7wood is available with a number of no-charge shaft options, including the Tensei Blue 75 (77g stiff flex or 78g X flex).  They're currently $249 less 15% with promo code 2022CDGA15.  Srixon has some no-cost premium shaft options on the ZX 7wood, but they're currently out of stock on heads and couldn't say when or if they'd get more.  Ping just lowered the price of the G425 fairways to $249 as well, and they had a decent selection of shaft upgrades available.   

Edit:  just saw your most recent post.  Sounds like Sub70 has what you need.
