Q: Is the GX-7 a driver, or a fairway wood?
A: Neither. And both.
While the GX-7 is designed to replace your current driver, it’s far more versatile than any driver you’ve ever played. Yep, it works great off the ground, like a fairway wood…only better.
Fact is, the GX-7 doesn’t fit neatly into any existing category – so we created a new one:
The GX-7 is the World’s First “X-Metal”
We’ll explain the technical stuff momentarily.
For now, we’ll sum up the GX-7 as the first club that strikes the sweet spot for loft, length and clubhead dimensions between a driver and a 3-wood…
… With a sole that mimics a 7-iron…
… And numerous design innovations that make it unbelievably powerful, accurate, forgiving, consistent and easy to hit.
Q: If I switch from my driver to the GX-7, will I lose distance?
A: Totally fair question.
Logic tells you that with its higher loft, smaller clubhead and shorter shaft, the GX-7 isn’t built for long drive champs.
Instead, it’s designed to make you CONSISTENTLY LONGER.
Meaning your average drive with the GX-7 will be longer than your average with your traditional driver.
The GX-7’s design, which features extreme perimeter weighting and a hot stainless steel face, is much more forgiving when you fail to connect with the sweet spot.
This translates to straighter and longer shots on miss-hits – and if you’re like most amateurs, you miss the club’s center fairly often.
So, to answer your question: No, your driving distance average won’t suffer. It may even go up.
We’ll reveal proof shortly by telling you what happened when a group of regular golfers tested the GX-7 against their own drivers.
(Spoiler alert: The GX-7 more than held its own in the distance department – even exceeding some golfers’ conventional drivers – while delivering astounding accuracy.)
Q: Crossing a driver with a fairway wood makes perfect sense. But how is the GX-7 similar to a 7-iron?
A: Glad you asked. It’s all about the sole… and the center of gravity.
Thanks to its unique design, the GX-7 works best when struck with a slightly descending blow, just like your irons and hybrids.
It’s the opposite of how we’re taught to hit the driver.
You realize what this means, right?
It means that
With the GX-7, you can use the same swing for every club in the bag.
No need to play the ball way forward in your stance when teeing off.
No need to catch the ball on the upswing to produce maximum yards.
No need to change your setup and thought process for 10-14 shots per round.
No need for extra-long tees, either.
Just swing the GX-7 like a 7-iron – and smoke it like a driver.
Q: How do I know if the GX-7 is right for me?
A: Hmmm…Is your swing speed at least 100 MPH?
Do you average 250+ yards off the tee?
When you slice, is it on purpose?
If you’re shaking your head “no” and chuckling, you’re gonna love the GX-7.
Q: Why should I choose the GX-7 over an adjustable driver and/or fairway wood?
A: Excellent question. Here are three good reasons:
1) Adjustable clubs aren’t 100% adjustable.
Sure, you can change the loft, lie and face angle to meet your needs. But in many adjustable drivers, the CG (center of gravity) is high and near the clubface – good for pros, bad for amateurs. Even if you can move the CG, you usually can’t move it enough.
Also, you could get stuck with a one-size-fits-all shaft length, typically 45” – 46” for today’s drivers. That’s too long for most of us. (FYI: The GX-7’s shaft is an easy-to-control 43”).
2) You’re wasting money on settings you’ll never use.
According to Golf Datatech, a leading research firm, only 1 in 3 golfers who buy adjustable drivers actually change the settings – ever. (You’re also spending a chunk of your $400 – $500 investment on the big brands’ massive marketing costs and tour pro endorsement fees…but that’s another story.)
3) The GX-7 is essentially “pre-adjusted” to match the typical of golfer’s swing.
As we’ve already stated: If you can bomb your current driver 250-plus and slice-free, congratulations – you’re in select company. And the GX-7 isn’t for you.
This club is designed for players who need help in the distance department, struggle with the ol’ “banana ball” and make inconsistent contact from both tee and fairway. Sound like anyone you know?
On a related note, you may be considering a professional fitting for your next driver or fairway wood. That’s a great idea – assuming you don’t mind spending an extra $150 – $300 on top of what you pay for your new toys.
Odds are, the fitter will recommend clubs that closely match the GX-7.
By the way: On the off chance the GX-7 doesn’t work with your swing, it comes with a money-back guarantee. (Full details in a moment.)
Q: How can the GX-7 help with my slice?
A: As you know, a slice is caused by an open clubface – and conventional drivers are notoriously difficult to square up at impact.
The GX-7 makes it easy.
First, the GX-7’s exclusive, multi-functional face progression helps you close the clubface and catch the ball squarely. Now, throw in three more slice-fighting factors:
1) Extra loft
2) A low-and-back center of gravity
3) A shorter shaft
Add it up and you’ll enjoy notable improvement in your slice – without changing your swing.
Q: What shots can I play with the GX-7?
A: A better question would be, What shots can’t you play?
The GX-7 will be your go-to club for:
- Drives on all par 4s and 5s – even those with tight landing areas
- Layups and long approaches from the fairway
- Recovery shots from the rough, fairway bunkers or bare ground
- Tee shots on lengthy par 3s
- Run-up shots when you can’t fly the ball onto the green
- Any shot requiring maximum distance and accuracy – with no margin for error
Q: Is the GX-7 legal?
A: Yes, indeed. The GX-7 conforms to the rules of golf.
