If you are not a golf fanatic, that statement might just make you do a spit take.

Strange that nickent, Dicks and golf galaxy sites do not even list the 7 series yet.

Haven't had the chance to hit the 3 or 4 hybrids yet.
I picked up the 3DX Ironwood last year off a used rack and was not a big fan. I would say the 7DT model is more similar to their past hybrid designs. Less offset, more of a player's type hybrid.
Their 7DX has more offset, has a very shallow and wide face. When hitting it, first thing it reminded me of was my K15 5w. I play the K15 wood for this very reason, very wide face, shallow profile and and deep from front to back.
By far it's the widest face hybrid I've ever hit. I think it would cater to somebody who is more of a sweeper like me.
I compared it to the Adams A12OS and the boxy design and taller face of the Adams just doesn't appeal to me. People rave about Adams hybrids and I want to love them every time I enter the store but whenever I hit them I never feel like I am getting anything out of the club. Their muted feel just feels dead to me.
Anyway, the Nickent gave me a very confident feeling over the ball. I mishit my hybrids alot so I am thinking this one might go in the bag later this week once I can hit up the store again. Probably go with the 5h to replace my 4i and perhaps pickup the 4h as well to replace my VR_S hybrid.
By the way if you haven't seen them, the Aldila RIP shaft, the Golfpride black/white multicolor grip and white head is a pretty sick looking combination.

7dt is I think $119
Picked up the 4h & 5h 7dx today. Will try and post pics tonight.
You are correct regarding the prices. I picked up the 3h in the 7dx. Trying it out tomorrow. The head on the 7dx is really wide and looks really easy to hit. If all goes well I will look to replace my 3dx 4H as well. If the performance is anywhere close to the appearance and feel this could be the best value hybrid in 2012. I will post back tomorrow after my round.

The 7dt looks good and I would consider playing it. Shaft and grip look awesome. Would love to hear some folks thoughts on feel with these guys. I will hit them in the sim soon.
