Summary: I have always loved my squareway 3 and 5 woods. Decided to try a the 7 wood, while I could still find one, and couldn't be happier. The distance replaced my 3 hybrid, with more loft and backspin it goes extremely straight. One of the easiest clubs to hit in my bag and a definate go to club for any lay-up situation. If you like the squareway clubs you will love having this 7 wood.
Summary: I am new to golf ( about 1 month) and this is the best club I have in the bag....well my only Callaway also. Its definately very foregiving and has great weight, feel and gives confidence. I have the 7w and it works great off the fairway for straight shots. It can be useful in the semi-rough grass and can get you out of the rough and closer to the green with a decent swing. Not much power needed, just a solid swing and I got an easy 110-140 every time.
Summary: Found the 3-wood fine off the tee but next to impossible to hit off the deck. After more than 30 bad fairway shots with it over several games, most of which were worm burners and OOB, gave it up. The 5-wood is OK, but tends to fade from time to time for no apparent reason. The 7-wood is straight, easy to hit, and very reliable. Went back to trusty ERC titanium 3 and 5 woods with the FT-i 7 wood.
Summary: A month ago while playing at a public course, a retiree invited me to test his FT-i 7-wood because he loves it so much. I took a couple swings with it and liked it, the square head looks strange wbut it worked well. I need a new 5-wood to fill the gap of my 3-wood and 3-hybrid because my 10-yr old Olimar 5-wood does not work as well as before (not sure why, getting older so maybe the shaft does not fit my swing anymore?
Conclusion: 3-Wood is the hated club in my bag. I never have been able to hit any 3 wood. SUPER slicer. Got it for $1 during buy a driver sale at Callaway. Different profile thant most 3 woods. seems to be flatter. When hit correctly, to goes great. It has a "plock" sound like a hollow wood block. Not the usual "plink" sound of my old 3-wood. Really square shape. Couldn't find the ball (topped) with the face of the club for the first few rounds after putting it in the bag.
