4 iron but bent 20 degrees weak and 3" short from std.
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.

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
919 Tour 9 iron
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

if I need to carry water/bunker 150 I would use my 8i
7 or 8 Depending on time of year (temp 2-30C ) as I play year round at sea level. In my 60's, Callaway Apex CF16
8 iron all the way.
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.
Between Clubs. 7 a bit of a stretch. 6 too much club. JPX919 Hot Metal Pro
