    Have a 22 degree cleveland launcher 7 wood. Longest tenured club in the bag that i hit over my 4/5 iron when i need something to land softly. Id say find a head you like looking at and fits your eye and then make sure you get a lower spin shaft so it does t launch and stay spinning up there

    Get scratch or die trying

    Two problems and you mentioned one, the high flight, and in the wind, it's a killer. The other is finding an off the shelf 7 wood in other then Senior flex.

    In the wind... when October rolls around, and the winds get higher and the rough thinner, my 7W goes on vacation in favor of the 3H.

    As for shafts other than Senior flex, where have you been looking? I regularly see R - and occasionally S flex - in Callaway and Tour Edge 7Ws, and Cobra 7-8Ws.

    I'm 64 and love my 7 woods. I have 2. A K15 23* and a G400 20.5*. They replace my 4 iron in both cases in my cart bag and walking bag. I also play 5 wood, 7 wood, 4 hybrid, 5 hybrid and 6 hybrid. The longest club in the cart bag is my 8 iron.
    You have to watch the loft. My 4,5 and 6 K15 hybrids actually replace my 5,6 and 7 irons in my Mizuno 800s. They equate to the same loft yet the number on the club is different. All the woods and hybrids launch much higher and go the same distance as the iron it replaces. They hold the greens every time. btw I'm a 9 handicap and still don't launch the long irons high enough to get them to do what I want.
