    Normally play 2 ish up of titleist standard. And yes up from black dot.



    Shafts same in pw and glide ? Sounds like a spin issue in a way ? Have you checked the loft of the pw and 50 ? One maybe 47 and the other 48. 2 off both ways equals almost even. How far is the 9 iron going?



    Mine are off a 48 degree pw ( super retro lofts ) and my full high draw ( longest carry traj and shape ) is 142 with pw. My 9 iron is 154 max. I’d call it 150 if a front pin. Something is off somewhere. And I’d bet anything it has nothing to do with the face hotness.

    I had the specs checked on my 9 which was a tick under 41*, supposed to be 40*. The PW was dead on the specs at 45*.



    I never checked my 50, but I’ve played 50’s in multiple models and it’s always been 135-140. So it has to be close. My PW’s in my last few sets played 46* and usually that’s my stock 150 club.



    I’m getting my stock 160 out of the 9, but the PW just won’t go. 140-145 max.



    They are currently shafted with modus 105 x’s which are way too light for me. I’m re-shafting this week which will help out, but I’m just gonna game the glide for my PW. It’s really odd to have such a huge gap there.



    I am not swinging great so it could be partly on me, but I’m still getting my 140 out of my gap and it’s basically matching my set PW.

    I just checked out the Maltby Playability Factor for i500s. The MPF is 188, which puts the 6-iron in the Players Classic category, with the likes of muscle back irons.



    I ordered a i500 6-iron, which I haven't hit yet. Generally I play a combo set of AP1 - AP2. AP1 in 6-iron.



    Should I be concerned?



    Guess I'll have to report back. Might end up going G700 or G410 for 5-iron and 6-iron, maybe 7-iron.

    That's why I buy one iron at a time.

    I have played around 10 rounds with the i500, getting to know them a little and really enjoying less offset than my previous irons (Taylormade M2).



    Coming from M2's that had stronger loft's, I was fitted and chose to get the "Power Spec" loft's that were somewhat similar to the irons that I was playing.



    Surprised how much i like the 4 iron, very easy to hit, I have been using it off the tee a lot.



    Highest and straightest irons that I have ever hit, when you get it in the center of the face, the ball flies.
