Picked up a G425 7 wood to replace my 3 hybrid. My hybrid used to be my go to club. I had such confidence with it. It’s almost like as I got to be a better player I just got worse and worse with it. F

By the way, I hate threads like this.  I now have an ebay bid on a club I didn't even know existed 30 minutes ago.  Thanks guys.

When younger, like you, I could use a 3 hybrid. Now that I'm in my 60s I need more launch. Low spin player to begin with, the extra spin helps as well to hold greens.   FORE!

Finally picked up a 7 wood and WOW! Wish I’d done it way sooner. Point of this post is for anyone wondering if they should try the 7 wood... the answer is yes! 

Yep. I figured it out two years ago when I bought my 917 7 wood. It is now my favorite club.

Wow, the 7 wood selection is slim. I did find a Cobra Fly-Z 5/7 wood adjustable from 17 to 20 degrees. I had never looked for a 7 wood before.

 

<edit> of course Ping does a 7 and a 9 wood in lefty. Ping cares. 🤣

Check out the PXG website also. They offer a lefty 7 wood in all their FW lines I believe. I know for sure they do with the 0211.

They are cheaper than Ping, and you’ll get the club a lot sooner, if those things are important to you...

I like my 7w so much I'm looking o add a 9w.

 

I just put in an 11-wood to replace the hybrid I’ve never hit very well.  People thought I was crazy at first but now everyone asks if they can hit it.

I actually just placed an order for a g425 7 wood yesterday with Ventus blue. Pretty pumped but the 5-6 week wait is going to be torture...

Callaway Speed 7 wd with Riptide 70 took less than a week. 

 

Very pleased with it. Enjoy the 425... when it arrives. Of course, I am awaiting a Mizuno STZ 3 wd - 3 more weeks to go...

I grabbed a Callaway Steelhead XR Heavenwood just a week or so from the Preowned site for cheap!  Like new condition  and matches up with my Steelhead XR 4wd great!

How timely, just now the announcers on the CBS broadcast of the Zurich astutely pointed out how 7 woods have become much more popular on the tour.

I just added a PXG Proto 7 wood to replace my 3 hybrid. The 3 hybrid was just too close to the 4 hybrid to be useful. I'm using a heavenwood shaft length and it fits the gap between my 3 wood and 4 hybrid perfectly. After 3 rounds, it's working well. I was worried about hitting out of iffy lies, where I used to use my hybrid but so far so good.

Assuming that 7 wood is 21*, what is your next club? If you look at my sig, I go from a 16.5* 4 wood to a 19* hybrid. I’m assuming the 7 wood will replace that.
Would a 21 or.22* 4 hybrid be okay or should I go with something higher lofted behind the 7?

I like woods in general and hit them good its just that i feel a wood head shape vs hybrid seems more unforgiving in certain lie situations. Basically i feel hybrid is more versatile and easier to hit.

I too think the hybrid is more versatile so I do still carry one but now instead of a 4H  I carry a 5H to go between my Heavewood and 5 iron.

I go 4w, 7w, 4h currently with the hybrid being 22°. The yardage gaps are as follows:

4w: 235

7w: 215

4h: 200

5i: 185

Thanks, I don’t have the distance anymore that you do, but I think the 4 hybrid would be the way I should go also.

I just got my 4 wood and 19* and 21* hybrids. I really like the FW, I’m actually better with it than my old 15*.

The 21* hybrid is so good, I ordered a 23* 5 hybrid on Friday, just to try.

The 19* hybrid is good, but to be honest I get so much more from it on a tee shot when playing a short par 4 or a long par 3, it leads me to think I’m not getting much benefit from it off the grass.

Im going to give it more of a chance, but I already have a PXG 7 wood in a cart.
Going off past history once that happens, I already know how this movie will end... 🙄

I've had a 7 wood in the bag until 2017 when the Cobra OS 3-4 hybrid was released. It never really got much love here but I liked it so much I have a backup in case it breaks.  It blurs the line between a hybrid & fairway. Really fits my eye. There is just a nice natural looking size progression between my Cobra 5 wood, the Cobra OS & my Cobra 5 hybrid.

I have a 3 wood (15), 7 wood (21), and 4 hybrid (22).  I am playing the 7 wood at a 3 wood length and lofted down to 19.5 degrees. It's easier for me to hit the 7 wood out of iffy lies than a 5 wood and it flies higher.

@Tee1up4 How would you compare the G425 7 wood to the G425 hybrid ?

I'm going through this debate myself. I tried the g425 3 wood and it's an absolute killer, but no 7 wood available.. 

 

Thank you for your input

 

Jason 

I liked the G425 hybrid. Sometimes it was a great club for me. Other times I would be hesitant to pull it because I would fear the left miss. So I would either choke down a 3 wood and try to hit a high cut or jump on a 4 iron. I fully admit I didn’t care for the feel of the Ventus Blue I had in it. Had an ADDI on my G410 hybrid and it was great. So it’s mostly the shaft. That and compounded with the fact that I didn’t ever have much confidence in it anymore. So I got the 7 wood and put a Diamana ZF 80 gram shaft tipped 1”. I’ve only used it a few rounds but I feel like it’s just as versatile as a hybrid. So easy to hit and launch. As dumb as it sound, I kinda found the notion of a 7 wood silly. So glad I got over that. I go from Driver, 3 wood, 7 wood(20.5) to my 4 iron. I don’t have an issue with the gapping. 7 wood goes about 225-230. 4 iron goes about 215.

I go 16.5/4W then g425 7W set at 21.5 which is the best out there IMHO due to adjustability, then g425 5 hybrid set at 25* and g425 6 hybrid set at 29*. I have never been a ping fan but with their adjustability for flat settings and multiple lofts it’s sooo easy to get your gaps right and that’s critical to play even mediocre golf like I do.  Here are carry numbers. 
4w - 195

7W - 185

5H - 175

6H - 165

My STZ 3 wood should be here this week. Got fitted for it about a month ago and it blew me away. Looks, feel, and performance. Total package.
