Just built a G410 7 wood w/70g Tensei Pro Orange at 5 wood length.  I have it at 2* strong making it more of a 6 wood!  It’s the perfect 230 club. The Tensei lowers the spin enough to keep this thing ballooning.  That’s my fear with a 7 wood.  Could get chewed up in the wind.  Shaft is crucial with a higher lofted wood (IMO)

 The other build was a Sim Ti 3w 70g Ventus Red at *1.5 weak making it closer to a 4 wood to promote a higher ball flight.  That Sim Ti has a hot face!!!  
Next up is a Sim 4 hybrid…still not sure about this club.  Has a bit of the left in it which I absolutely HATE.  Lol.

Those are some nice builds! Ventus red is on the list of shafts i'd like to test in a FW.  I have similar thoughts on the 7w shaft, so I opted for an 80g RDX black. Stability and spin control. Total experiment but I am excited. Unfortunately outdoor golf season is coming to a close here in Alberta in the next 2-3 weeks. Testing will be limited to indoor sims and a heated driving range over the winter if it doesn't arrive soon. 

 

How do you like the 3w lofted up 1.5*?

Hoping weather stays decent for you for a bit longer!  It’s finally cooling off here in Louisiana. 
VR is a killer wood shaft.  Easy to hit, easy to swing but not easy on the ole pocketbook.  
3w in standard was just a little to flat for me.  Low spin bullets.  Great off the tee but not enough height in the fairway.  That xtra degree 1/2 put the ball flight in the right zone for both.  I’m not really losing much distance if any.   Before, I played 3w and 5w standard and they played very similar…I suspected I had some gapping issues at the top of the bag.  I hit 3

wood 250 and 5 wood 240.  Not ideal lol. It’s like, what’s the point??

I thought about an 80g 7 wood shaft as well.  But, I jumped on a used 70g Tensei Pro on bst.  Good deal and worth a shot.  Still wondering if 80g would be better.  We shall see.  What 7 wood head are you in?

I ordered a TSi2 21*. I will have to play around with lofting my 3W up and 5w down to see the best gapping and flight. Plenty of time during a Canada winter to get that figured out!

Hybrid = hook machine for me

4W too close to 3W and even 5W too close since my 3W is HL at 17*

For me old Callaway "Heaven Wood" -- 7W head on 4W shaft -- has filled the gap nicely

Well, the TSi2 7 wood with 80g Hzrdus Black came in and i've been able to hit it at the range a couple times and got out for one round. It just looks and feels easy to hit due to the length and high loft. So far, I am enjoying the honeymoon phase with the 7W! And a ripple effect from this experiment...the stability of the 80g shaft is making me want to switch to a 90g shaft in my 23* hybrid.

Recently won a fairway metal or hybrid and struggling to choose what to get. Currently have driver, 3W, 5W, 23* hybrid. I am tempted to try a something new in the bag like a TSi2 4W or 7W. 
 

Other option is to upgrade the hybrid to a 24* TSi2 or a G425 26* hybrid to gap between 5i and 5W. 
 

Is it time to experiment with a new fairway loft? And if I go 7w, so I go 70g shaft like 3W and 5W or bump up to 80g since shaft length is decreasing? 

 

I went with the TSi2 4-16.5°, TSi1 7-20°, TSi1 23° & 26° hybrid and it all worked out great.

Callaway just dropped a utility wood that sort of marries different qualities of woods and hybrids. It looks really good and comes in moderate stock lengths. Check it out if you haven’t already.

 

I play a small headed 16* 4W at just under 42” length. Big proponent of shorter-than-standard length fairway woods.

Can you share a quick mini-review of the TSi1 hybrids? And what’s your ballpark swing speed? I’ve been looking for more spin with my hybrids (been struggling to hold greens a little bit) so they caught my attention, but I haven’t tried them yet — I like heavier hybrid shafts, so I’d guess I’d need to add a lot of head weight.

I would love to carry my G400 7 wood. However, it's about as useful as a chocolate fireguard on the links course I play at. Any sort of wind in my face and it's coming back at me. I bought it before I moved here to play at a parkland course. As a result I now carry 15 deg 3 wood, 18 deg 5 wood then straight to 4 iron.
