Iron set with 1/4" length gaps

HertsjoatmonHertsjoatmon Advanced Members Posts: 165 ✭✭
I've been playing with some one length clubs and while I love the mid irons, I find the wedges too long and the gapping doesn't suit my slower swing speed in the longer irons.

I wondered if there was an "in between" set of irons that are 1/4" off the shelf that would help with consistency but still give good gapping with out having to sort out lie and swing weight issues with adjusting a regular set

    I had a similar experience with one length. I just posted on a different thread (about irons for tall golfers) describing my new set with 1/4 inch gaps. I use P790s and I have them set up this way:



    5 iron (37.75") = +.00 over standard SW D2.0

    6 iron (37.50") = +.25 over standard SW D3.5

    7 iron (37.25") = +.50 over standard SW D5.0

    8 iron (37.00") = +.75 over standard SW D6.5

    9 iron (36.75") = +1.0 over standard SW D8.0

    P iron (36.50") = +1.0 over standard SW D8.0



    I don't know of any manufacturer that does this; you can just order your clubs this way. The only issue is that it creates ascending swing weights, which I like but not everyone does. You can address this through other methods (lead tape, etc.) but I like my set this way with the swing weights getting slightly lighter as the clubs get longer. So far this is working out very well.

    I like ascending swing weights (although not as extreme as yours) and have been buying ping AWT 2.0 shafts to put in the clubs ive made in the past with SW increments of +0.5 as you got from the long to the short irons (using tip weights and lead tape). It's a lot of faff though and I don't have the equipment to change the lie.



    How do you find the lie angles on that set you had made?



    I wondered if it was better to start with a 1" long single length set and then shorten those by 1/4" increments with tip weights and lead tape making up the swing weight short fall. issue would still be the lie angles though...

    Seems like you got 2 options, find a Custom club maker, or Do it yourself, starting from New components, or modify a excising set.



    If you can handle a pipe cutter, a gram scale and a millimeter ruler, you can modify a existing set by assistance of this Excel VBA app
