    I use one of two clubs. Either my full 9 iron (40*) or a smooth 8 iron (35*). JPX 900 F. More depends on the temperature and if I can miss long or short.

    Back in the day, it was an 8 iron. Equivalent to a modern 9 iron. Today it's a 7 iron or 6 iron. While I've lost a lot of ss, I'm hitting double the gir.

    Like many have said, depends on course conditions.  Perfect lie, level ground tee to green, no wind would be an 8 iron...TM P790s with a smooth swing tempo.

    Ping G25 White dot 8 Iron.

    One of the reasons I'm looking to get a different set the flight on it kind of balloons. Much older set was quite a bit further

    I have Mizuno MP 67’s with DG X100 shafts and I have to step on a 9 to get it there, but I am in the market for new sticks so I tried out the MP 20HMB and I can’t confirm a 150 distance with them because I only hit a 7 iron and a 4 iron, but the 7 and 4 iron were both a full club longer than my Mp67’s.

    I don’t play as much as I used to, and I’m getting older, so I was looking for something a bit more softer feeling than the DG X100 and a bit more forgiving. I hit the Mizuno Mp20 HMB with the Modus 120 shaft and they fit both my criteria. A full club longer with the 2 clubs I hit, so it’s all relative to swing speed, quality of strike and loft I suppose. Not all irons have the same loft to match the number on the club, even among companies

    2017 Epic 9 iron for an even lie and little wind. Headwind or uphill soft to full 8. I live at 5200 feet so the skews the distance.

    5 iron, but im working on my swing and flip to get it to a consistent 6 iron.

    Then when i can hit it with a 7 iron, i am happy with my distances.

    im 38, 6 feet. played basketball all my life. It has puzzled me my lack of distance other than just not ball striking properly. Ball goes straight as an arrow most of the time.
