how many irons do you carry with this set up? must start with a 9 iron? I've owned a couple 7 woods @ 21 degrees,  but prefer my hybrid. whatever works..... 

Well depends but if packing all woods (i. E + a 3 and 5 though don't have a driver - use a mini driver sometimes )  then maybe a midish iron for chipping and a pitch iron (use v open if necessary to increase loft)

I play one off and on.  Haven't had one in the bag this year, but had one in it the last two years.  If I get my tee ball in the appropriate spots, I have a couple of holes at my home course that call for high shots of 200-215 yards, and the 7W worked good for that.  This year I figured I'd sacrifice the ability to make that shot for other needs. 

My seven wood went back in my bag Monday.  Had several 190-200 yard shots over a bunker on Saturday and Sunday, and didn't have a club in my bag that could clear the bunker.  I removed my 3 hybrid on Monday to make room for the 7W, but think I might have to reassess that and take the 3W out instead.  My 3W and 5W go too similar of distances to need both of them.

When I first started playing, I had the same setup as @WUTiger.  Eventually I switched to a 4w and 3h as I found it more versatile out of rough.  I almost never hit a fairway wood out of anything but the fairway or tee box

I always felt it was the most forgiving club I had and it was some knock off and I cannot even remember the name of the club

@Brian Wand I will give you real-time feedback on this following our TST Fall Round together at Stonewolf CC in Fairview Heights, IL. We'll solicit opinions from the rest of the local TST crew.

I have a cobra amp cell 5-7 wood. It is set on 6 wood.

I can hit it high 210 yards off of a tee, and, it lands like a sack of potatoes.

Or, hit it regular and carry 225 off a tee.

From the fairway it goes 215-220.

It is a real versatile club.

I bought it new, for $45 on Ebay.

Good for you!!  I have the driver, 4w, and 3h of that club.  I have hit some other clubs and feel like getting the itch to buy something new but those clubs swing so well I haven't been able to get away from them yet

Years ago I had a Goldwin, Magnificent Seven 7 wood and really loved it.....then someone stole my clubs at the Seattle airport.  Now I just use a 3 iron and am pretty happy with the distance gaps in my clubs.

I have a small collection of Ben Hogan Speed Slot woods. Occasionally I might throw the 7W in the bag, but usually opt for a hybrid. I also use the 5 wood frequently. I've never gone higher than a seven however.

My wife carries a 7-wood, I do sometimes.

Somebody on this site I think carries a fairway wood that replaces a PW... That's more in my "Longest Iron In Your Bag and Why thread?"

Alina plays a seven-wood too, when she drags mine around she drags around my 9w.

I can't imagine a 7 wood being easier to hit than my short stubby-style 3h. The one that has a more shallow back. 200-205 yards and lands very soft.

I think it is going to come down to what looks and plays the best for the individual's swing.  I just can't seem to get on with hybrids but woods always go pretty much where I want them to.  Maybe I just need to try out even more clubs!

That would be me.  I have Bang SF series fairway woods from 2 wood all the way down to 19 wood.  They make a 21 wood as well to replace a sand wedge.

I messed around with one... They do land like a sack of potatoes.

I have an old Titleist 904 7-wood. It might as well be a 42 inch sand wedge.... I hit just strait up moon balls with that thing..

I'm thinking of getting a 7w after reading this thread. I'm playing with a 12* driver, an 18* 5w and have been struggling with getting a 3w (which I struggle to hit well) or a hybrid (which I have never even tried to hit) to round out my woods. I'm now thinking 21* 7w is on the shopping list...feed the addiction.
