7 wood , what iron and hybrid does it replace?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I just bought a 7wood off ebay, to fill the gap between my 3 iron and 3 wood. What hybrid and iron is a 7 wood typically supposed to replace??? Thanks.

Depends on how a model of woods is configured. Lofts on 7Ws vary by mfgr.

 

For the original RBZs...

  • 3W = 15*
  • 3W.HL = 17* (like, it's a 4W b3_huh.gif  )
  • 5W = 19*
  • 7W = 21*

 

I use 3W.HL (carry about 215)  and a 7W (carry about 195).

 

The 4H = 22* (with shaft about 1.5" shorter) carries about 180.

 

I also use a 4i = 24*, carries about 175 (with noticeably lower trajectory then 4H)

 

As far as which hybrid it replaces, it depends... Traditional hybrids fall between FWs and irons in shaft length. Iron-replacement hybrids match a model of irons, with the 3H replacing the 3i, 4H replacing 4i, etc.

I have a 21.5 degree - don't bag it often - but when I do I use it as a 3 iron replacement. I hit it about 190 - 200 max.

My 7 wood (40.5", 21*) hit further than my 4 hybrid (36.75", 20*) about 10-15 yards. 3 iron replacement in my case.

 

PS: My hybrid is from a single length irons set, hence the low loft and short length.

I believe a 21 deg 7 wd replaces most 3i or 3 Hybrids - it is traditionally 21 degrees with a 41 inch shaft. But the OEMs have blurred traditional - now you see a 7 wood from 21-23 degrees in 42-42.5 inch shafts - it is ridiculous, and based on marketing slogans - "we are longer." Yes, if you can hit a 42.5 inch shaft consistently
