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)

It's my 190 or so club. i suck at golf so I'm leaving it at that. 

More often than not I'm using the 7 wood off the fairway,also use it at long par 3's.

I've been using a 7 wood for about 4 years. I use the Maltby version that helps cut through rough a little bit easier and it is one of my go-to clubs. I use it for anything around 215 yards and it's g

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.

    • How does a player know when they should move up to blades? I ask because my son (18 years old, 3 years experience, 5-6 hdcp) seems to think he should consider it.  He was fitted for Wilson C300s 3 years ago. He hits them well. I could be wrong, but I think his 6 iron is his 200+ yard club and that 7 iron is in the 190s.  He practices with a Mevo into a net a lot and should know his distances well because of that (assuming Mevo is accurate). But sometimes on the course even sometimes with the Mevo into the net he gets what he considers a flyer from a fairway lie that goes 10-15 yards farther than expected and ends up causing him to scramble to save par. In a recent round he had about 145 on a par 3 and chose gap wedge over wedge because a short miss is safer than a long miss and still air mailed the green and ended with bogey. I tend to think the inconsistency is just due to inexperience and actual changes in his stroke from swing to swing. He thinks it might be due to the clubs. When should he consider getting fitted again vs just learning to swing more consistently?    
    • I shot around 83-85 on all the courses except the last day at Sand Valley when I shot a 79. I had a really good back nine at Sand Valley that day. I typically started slowly, and then had a good middle stretch of holes, 6-15, then have a bad last few holes. I putted really well, thanks Erik for giving me two putting tips about 4-5 weeks ago. Started making everything inside 15-FT. I think at the Sand Box, I had a 9 hole stretch where I made everything inside 15-FT. I didn't have many putts inside 5-Ft there.  The best hole for me was #12 at Sand Valley where I went Driver, 7 iron to about 25-FT, and two putted for birdie.  I also had a pretty good hole on Mammoth, where I went Driver, 3-wood, and pitched it to about 6 inches.   
    • @KevinBlakeHave you read this post? It may help.  
    • I shot 80 on the second day at SV, then 80 and 81 at Lawsonia, which were my 3 lowest scores of the year. Some highlights: 60 yard sand shot to 5 feet for birdie on MD. 3 birdies in a row from 10-12 on SV on day 2. Had a combined 30-35 feet of eagle putts on 10 and 12 (I hit two 5 irons to about 15 and 20 feet, respectively), and stuffed an approach from about 115 to 4 feet on 11.  Making par from the driving range on 9 on SV. Hit a completely blind 70 yard shot to 15 feet. I had to turn on my GPS to get some guess at the yardage because I couldn't see the flag to hit with my laser. I had a great lie, though. 🤣 Hitting the green twice at 7 at Lawsonia, playing it in a combined -1. 
    • I filmed @DeadMan@iacasand @GolfLug all with great shots on the the final hole of the Sandbox, number 17. Erik and Vishal nearly ace it. Gotta love the drunk guy yelling in the background. 😂
