7 Wood replaces which iron

I am looking to buy a 7 Wood but before i do i need to be sure which iron it wouls replace. Am i right in thinking the 3/4 iron? Thanks

Take a read of...

Said it before and I'll say it again. 7 woods are for girls. Get a rescue club. Especially if you're a 15 handicapper. 19 or 21 degree will do nicely.

Already tried a rescue club thanks Del and hit it like shite hence the decision to buy a 7 wood. 18 degree Ram FX before you ask.

Hey Tim, depending on the type of 7 wood, it is a good replacement for a 3/4 iron, although I still keep a 4 iron in the bag for drilling it lowThis 'girl' uses a 21* Mizuno Blue Rage with a Dynamic Gold shaft and is up to 190 in summer.Better than a rescue, as the higher flight enables you to get it up and over trees without losing distance.

Top man thank you Lionel. Quite fancied trying the deep red as i used to use the deep red 365 driver and found it very forgiving, plus you can buy one for about

Very small head - not as forgiving as some.

A trip to Foremost and AGD becons this weekend me thinks...Try before i buy.


Very constructive as usual Ace!!!!

I think it is also important to consider where you are hitting it from.If you are wild off the tee and need height and distance for your second shot then it's probably a better club to have in your bag than 3 or 4 iron.Never hit a rescue club so I can't compare it. I generally don't want to hit the ball high so would not be without my longer irons.Having said that I'm still in the 7 woods are for girls and old men camp. Sorry !!!

Apols. Being a tad facetious (I love the new google toolbar spell checker).I had one for a while actually (don't tell anyone). I got fed up of people asking if it came with a free skirt.And I couldn't get on with it and kept hooking the cr*p out of it, so went for a rescue club (which I thought was supposed to give you a high ball flight). Opted for a 19* TM rescue mid and have never looked back.To answer your question, it would replace a 3/4 iron well, depending on how well you hit your irons.

Del, no need to apologise mate, i knew it was in jest.. Re: Rescue clubs against other irons, woods i suppose it is horses for courses and if you like what you got then great. Sold my rescue club to a mate of mine who plays off of 23 and he hits it quite well. Maybe i am just too damn good for a rescue club (chortle chortle).

taylor made r580 7 wood brilliant club. as to gilrs using them if it's good enough for Vijay Singh it should be good enough for everyone else.

May have been the type of rescue, its the old whatever works again I bought a FliHi and well it didn't sold it to my mate who had a Ram FX Rec which was fine off the tee but off the deck another story but loves the FliHi. Was going to replace it with a 7w myself but decided to order a Sonartec MD to have a go.

7 Wood should replace a 3/4 Iron if you hit it well. It will be quite good out of the rough and get a high flight off the deck.

mt - you might be interested to know that Vijay's is not quite what it seems. It is bent to approximately a 5 wood loft for a start.

I have a 7 wood. (no surprise there then). I also have a 25* TM rescue wood. I hit both clubs about 150yds. (I'm a girlie remember.) But - they both have a totally different flight and I use them for different shots. The 7 wood I can hit really high and let it drop onto the green without much run. Whereas the TM will fly lower and run onto the green. So it depends what you want to so with the club. If you find the 7 wood easier to hit than a long iron, why would you not have one?

It does depend on the make of and model of 7 wood you buy. For me, my Wilson Invex Titanium 7 wood would replace a 2 iron my other 7 wood Adams Tightlies ST would replace a 3iron.

I have a Mizuno MP001 7 wood DG steel shaft. Basically replaces the 3 iron in distance. Flies very high, and nice and easy to hit. Great for coming in over high trees, that would snag a iron. Have tried rescues and just can't get on with them, so will be sticking with the 7 wood for a while.

Have a Yonex 7wood which I use if I need to get some distance out of semi rough (find its easier to pop the ball out than an iron) otherwise if I am on the fairway I will stick to a 3/4iron

Dogleg left 15th on Monday - caught up in long crap on the left trying too hard to get it tight to corner. Left with a blind 165 yard shot over bank and trees down to well protected green or a pitch back out onto fairway. Mate stood on fairway to watch '7 wood' shot, which landed front of green and rolled up to 10 foot.

.....Mate p****d himself laughing as Lionel 4 putted.;0)

LOL at Harry.By the way, you notice he didn't mention which green ;)

'40' points H. - an' used a chipper.

My newly bought 7 wood has just replaced my 3 - 4 and 5 irons in one swoop, its only a cheap Donnay but it is SO easy to hit, ive never played so well since i added it to my bag.7 woods for girls?I dont care one jot.

I'm with LadyGolfLover on this one!"If you find the 7 wood easier to hit than a long iron, why would you not have one?"Simple as that....golf is about how many, not how!My 7 wood (Cobra SZ), replaces my 3 & 4 irons and has single handedly knocked 6 shots off my handicap! I have tried most brands of rescue/hybrids and just can't get on with them, they son't appeal to my eye and correspondingly I hit them like Poo!

vijay has a 9 wood is he a girl? i dont think so swallow some pride get a seven wood if you think they are any use to you. personally i prefer a rescue club.

I have been using my 7-wood for years, it is the the one club I never seem to have isssues with as far as quality contact. When I am hitting my low irons well, I don't use the 7-wood as much. I do tend to use it when the course is wet and the ground soft. With wet conditions I tend to hit more fat shots with my irons, since I scoop the ball more with the 5 and 7 woods, I like them better on a wet course. The only advantage I find with the 3 or 4 iron is that my 7-wood seems to land harder on the green and roll further once it lands as opposed to a softer landing with the 3 or 4 iron

Sam Torrence used one for yrs,Think he was slightly better than 6.9 Del.Would`nt call him a girl.

Did you just quote someone from 8 years ago?  

F me !  There has been a sudden increase in old threads being resurrected over the past week or so.  Some of them have been dead for 10 years or more. If this carries on i'm going to stop trying to access the website via my Ipad - a ouija board has to be a better bet. 

Aye but I have still got and use my Wilson Invex 7 wood It's the oldest club in my bag

lol   Love my nike ignite 7wood, bought mine about the time this was thread was first posted pmsl
