    Funny you say that Yeti is the best, when basically every review I’ve read from people who have actually compared other brands against them (ie. Pelican, RTIC) says that the other brands are better… and are often cheaper. Although you do get a bumper sticker when you buy a Yeti, so if that’s important to you…

What GolfWRXers are saying about stronger players using a 7-wood

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the strategy behind playing a 7-wood. WRXer ‘Sabzor’ kicks off the thread, saying:

“Lately I’ve been interested in possibly swapping the hybrid for a 7-wood and wanted to see if there were any stronger players who did the same? Often you hear of it going too high, but I feel that even the 4w is pretty optimal for me.

 My thought process is mainly around having 2 versatile distance woods starting around 250yds down – I figure off the tee if I need more than 250 I’m hitting driver anyway. Just curious with some of the pros we’ve seen lately doing the same thing.”

And our members have been having their say on the subject in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • demeeksDC: “Big fan of the 7-wood. Main thing is to get the right shaft — stiff enough — as they often come with softer shafts. Easy to hit and easy to stop. I have landed many 7-woods on greens that stopped dead.”
  • uglande: “I’ve got a TS2 7 wood with a Ventus Blue 7x shaft, and it’s phenomenal. Nice height but no ballooning. Shaft is important, but so is the clubhead. Brands that are more game-improvement focused have 7-woods with COG that are too low, and you can get high spinny flights. But the Titleist 7-woods (esp. TS2) have not been a problem for me. And obviously, some of the TaylorMade guys are doing well with the SIM 7-wood.”
  • VNutz: “I’ve played the 7w on and off for quite some time, SS is probably around 110 nowadays so a bit behind you. For me, it plays like a 5w and was better than a hybrid for my game as those tend to hook on me. I’ve since taken it out of the bag in favor of the modern more hittable driving irons, but I wouldn’t hesitate to put it back in the bag.”
  • L29: “I love the 4w, 7w combo. Still have the Cally xr16 in both and can’t get them out of the bag. My only issue with the 7w is when there is a significant amount of headwind. I do have a little bit of difficulty flighting it down. This problem, however, is nowhere near bad enough to have me thinking of any kind of change. That 7w lands like a raindrop on the green.”
  • Chazb: “The Callaway heaven wood has been my go-to club for over a year, and it’s been a Scoring difference. I even use it to tee off at times as it has very good distance and direction.The people I play with call it my magic club because it always puts me in a good place on the course.”

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.

These are some of the latest cool finds from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules

Member Baroo – Titleist T100s “Blackout” irons

The theme for today is “reduced glare” and you’re certainly going to get that with this set of Titleist T100s irons. Going from 4-iron through 48 degree, the only thing more stealth than these would be a camo set.

To see the full listing and additional pictures check out the link here: T100s Blackout

Member Techgolfer61 – Raw Miura CB1008 irons

A little rust means no glare and a very unique look. Considering the price of these Miura’s, don’t expect them to last long on the open market.

To see the full listing and additional pictures check out the link here: Raw Miura irons

Member LeftyCabe – Ping G400 LST

I’m going to call this the LLST (Lefty Low Spin Technology). This driver head is in fantastic shape and ready for a shaft. Did I also mention it’s going for one heck of a price?
