I wonder what some of you do when you want to increase clubhead speed. I'm 5'11 175 - I'm a good ballstriker most of the time but would like to be about a club longer (i think i should be a club longer IMO). My numbers with a 6 iron are 117 ball speed, 85 swing speed, 18 launch , 5100 spin, push/pull 2 degree, 406 side spin, 44 descent angle, 30 yards peak, with about 170 yards of carry 181 total.

Any tips?

My numbers with a 7 iron are 109 BS, 19-22 launch, and carry the ball about 165 with a 31 degree 7 iron. My driver goes about 250 -260 when all is said and done.

    my 7i is 34 degree with the same carry and my driver has the same carry as yours. Superspeed is legit but I sit at a desk all day and it is a back injury waiting to happen which is why I stopped. I might start it back up in winter and do a full warm up before each session. Sucks getting old. I did gain a bit of speed and about half of it stuck even after I quit.

    Improve your mechanics. More speed, more accuracy, more consistency. Unless you already have really good mechanics

    165 carry for 109 ball speed seems optimistic, even with relatively low spin shots for a 7i.

    Stretch and do overspeed training. You can actually achieve your goals within a few weeks if you do it right.

    Move to Colorado.

    Seriously though , I picked up a club of distance after starting some weight training. Stronger forearm and grip le me control a faster club - took the brakes off. Then i moved to higher altitude 😁.
