7 wood recommendations


Recommended Posts

Alright ... I'm changing the bag a bit this year. The 3 wood is OUT, I can't do anything but hit it left. As such, the 5 wood that is mostly point and shoot is also out, both consolidated with a 16.5 tour edge CB5 FOUR WOOD at 16.5 degrees. So far I am killing this thing. A 60* wedge is added .. experimentally.

 

The 3 iron, which hasn't been hit more than twice since 2015 is also out. And a nice 7 wood will sit in it's place.

 

I'd prefer another Tour edge CB5 .. but I can't really find one. Any suggestions for a low cost, slightly used 7 wood that comes with a good shaft? I'd like to find one for ... 40-100 bucks or so. To the thin crowd of 7 wood players .. what are you using? TIA

I'm using a Ping G 7 wood with a even flow blue shaft in it. Point and shoot for me on really long Par 3's. I pieced it together for under $170 total from the bay. When I was originally looking, it's hard to find a 7 wood that doesn't have a senior flex shaft on it.

My Current WITB:

Ping G400 LST - Project X EvenFlow T1100 White 6.5

Ping G - 5 & 7 Wood - Project X EvenFlow Blue 6.5

Cobra Amp Cell - 4 Iron – Project X EvenFlow White 6.5

I'm a fan of the Titleist 915 21 degree with the standard blue Diamana shaft. I like it because it plays well from the tee, the fairway and most rough and you can work it like crazy. For comparison, I also carry an Epic 5 wood in 18 degrees, which is crazy long (I don't need a 3 wood anymore and no longer carry it), but I can't work it very well at all. The Epic is high and straight. The Titleist is high and workable.

I've recent fallen in love with the F7 7/8 wood. It's really versatile, and the rails really do help hitting out of some nasty lies. I play mine about 3/4" shorter than standard and added a little weight to bring the swingweight up.

Some suggestions:

  • Recent Tour Edge non-tour FWs such as the XCG7, the E8 and E9 might work for you. (No TE "tour" heads come in 7W).
  • Callaway Alpha 815 with 18* head set to 20*.
  • Cobra FlyZ family fairway woods (stock shafts for FlyZ long clubs are a bit heavier than those of most manufacturers)

Thanks for all the suggestions ... I'm leaning towards a CB2 or VSTEEL right now. It depends on what I can find in the wild. Lots of senior flex. :) In all likelihood I am going to have to buy a new shaft (TBD..) and build it up ... maybe I can tear apart my 3 wood and use that shaft, which would probably be ok in a 7 wood, tipped a bit. I like it in the 5 wood more than the 3. I need a stiffer shaft for the 3 wood anyway.

 

I haven't really been keeping tabs on the state of golf equipment, I wasn't sure if a certain manufacturer was killing it these days. If I wanted to go newer perhaps the Callaway woods would be a good move. I've had previous bad luck with Ping and Titleist woods.

After reading this thread and others I picked up a V steel 7 wood.

Came with a reg. flex stock MAS shaft....any suggestions on a replacement?

Something cheap in stiff, mid launch.

Thanks

I love my V-steel, but I think what's more important is getting a good shaft for it. You might want to try something a bit heavier to keep ball flight down a touch (other factors will also affect this). Ideally, for my 7w I would like to find a slightly heavier version of the same shaft I have now, just to give me even better control and more penetration in the wind.

Think about the sort of shots you want to hit with your 7w, then play around with shafts accordingly.
