The GX-7 Metal: GX7Golf.com for More “Consistency?”

02/01/2017

Consistency is king on the course, especially from the tee. This is why the pros are pros, and you are an amateur. Playing with the same clubs as the professionals could be hurting your game more than it helps. Because the pros swing with such consistency, they are able to play with clubs designed for higher swing speeds and consistent club face contact.

This is exactly what the GX-7 metal promises. More consistency.

Perhaps you’ve seen the commercial on the Golf Channel.

A shorter shaft, more weight around the edges of the club head and a little extra loft helps those double-digit handicappers get the ball in the air from the tee or “off-the-deck” and keeps the ball closer to the target line. Not to mention, the makers of the GX-7 metal report

Not to mention, the makers of the GX-7 metal report an extra 15-25 yards off the tee.

Where does that put you on your nemesis par-5 at the local country club? Within wedge range? Putting for birdie? Shoot, maybe even on the green in two?

Thats not all… The GX-7 metal has a sole and center of gravity similar to a 7-iron. Combine that with a shorter shaft and one that is designed for slower swing speeds and you have a lethal combination for consistency and distance for the amateur golfer.

“New Club Delivers the Distance of a High-Performance Driver and the Accuracy of a Fairway Wood, Using Your Natural 7-Iron Swing!

Learn more about the club.

All of this talk of versatility and ease of use and you might assume that something like this doesn’t conform to the rules of golf. Actually, it does. And it could help you bring your game to the next level.

Why hasn’t something like this been designed before? We just aren’t sure. The amateur golfer has always been expected to fill the shoes of a professional golfer. That’s just not fair. Amateurs are not professionals for a reason. And for those reasons, the amateurs need clubs that are going to help their game and not hinder it.

Quit pointing fingers at your game, your swing or your body and start pointing at your clubs. Take control of your game by taking control of your bag.

When you grab the big stick out of the bag, you are not only changing clubs but changing swings. The makers of the GX-7 metal wanted to change that by putting a club in your hand that you can swing like a 7-iron. Now you can put the same swing on those long balls and expect the same quality ball flight…but further.

Have you played the GX-7 medal? If so, leave your thoughts in the comments below.


We opened this up last week. Review is coming!

    Got mine last week, initial disappointment turned into joy as I learned how high to tee and where in my stance to play.
    hit much better than any driver or mini I have tried, and I have Tried MOST of them
    at 61, and a 12 Handicap, I need to get 200-225 off tee, in fairway and all is well.
    Price is right as well.
    I hoping my long search for “a Driving Club” is over.

    Interesting, great to hear Billybes. Good luck with the club going forward…keep it in the fairway.

    Used it for the first time today. Most shots in the fairway however I did not get the distance I normally do. Some of this I attribute to playing in the North in February so no roll. I’m not sure how high to tee the ball.Anyone with recommendations?

  7. Troy Klongerbo

    Jamie, we have not hit it, but a great rule of thumb is to tee the ball with 1/2 to 1/4 of the ball above the crown of the club. Good luck!

    Hi guys. Thinking of buying the GX 7 metal? Good driver or just a gimmick. Would appreciate more reviews

    Got mine last week. Took it to the driving range yesterday with my current driver, a Wilson Big Red to compare. The GX7 seemed to go straighter and higher on most shots compared to my driver. I was really pleased with the forgiveness off the turf with no tee. It seemed to be pretty easy to hit and quite straight. I am off 18 so am inclined to spray them a bit normally. This club seemed to make it easier to hit straight. Can’t wait to try it out on the course next week.

    Thinking of buying this new GX7 but I do not like the sound coming off the club. Sounds like hitting a pop can? also what brand of shaft is it. thanks Leo

    Will it be available in golf stores? Reputation for online order not very good.

  13. Troy Klongerbo

    To our knowledge, George, it is for online sale only.

    Leo, stay tuned as we are hoping to dive deeper into this product in the coming weeks. We don’t know why it sounds the way it does.

    I purchased mine on Tuesday of this week and it will be delivered on Saturday. So that is pretty good. Can’t wait to try it.

    I hit mine for the first time yesterday (3.16.17), thought the stock grip that came with it was a little “small”, not sure if this is part of the setup for performance (re-gripped it with a standard Golf Pride Tour Velvet)…feels much better! I like the driver, it has a smaller club head than today’s 460CC driver which at first is odd to look at, but once you hit the club, it’s SOLID! I like the shorter shaft (about a standard 3 wood length) which allows me to swing at it with my old swing key “7 to 1” clock swing without snap hooking it…which I like and selected a “stiff” flex shaft because even though I am over 50, I can still get my swing speed above 100mph…so this club just is not for the 85mph swinger…select shaft accordingly.

    Nothing miraculous, just a nice club. This is going to stay in my bag for awhile.

    Ordered mine last week and they said it would ship the week of March 20th. I received an e-mail today and said it was back ordered. Was hoping to take it on a golf trip in early April.
    Should I cancel the order or is it worth the wait?

  25. Troy Klongerbo

    March 17, 2017 at 2:58 pm

    I can’t verify at this point whether or not it’s worth the wait, but we had to wait a while too and the wait wasn’t too long. We waited roughly 1 week.

    Thanks Kevin and have fun on your trip!

    where in my stance should I place the ball?

  27. Troy Klongerbo

    March 18, 2017 at 1:49 pm

    Alan, great question. I would suggest having it close to where you’d play your driver in your stance. Here’s a great article on ball position to help you out: https://usgolftv.com/golf-instruction-2/ball-position-at-address/

    I purchased the Gx7 driver on 3/14/17 from their website, I received an email three days later telling me that it was on back-order and that it should be in by the end of the following week. I was concerned about some of the reviews that I read after making the purchase and I did not want to wait two weeks for the club. I decided to cancel the order until the jury is out on this driver. I was refunded my money the following day.

  29. Troy Klongerbo

    March 18, 2017 at 3:56 pm

    Bob, it’s good to know you’ve been refunded. We have a review going live at the end of this coming week, be sure to stay tuned.

    Is this club for women. I see no testimonies.

  31. Troy Klongerbo

    March 22, 2017 at 9:26 pm

    Diane, there are no testimonials for women, you’re correct. But if you get a shaft that fits you, you’ll probably be able to use this club just fine!

    They don’t have multiple options specifically built for women though, that I’ve seen.
