Problem with my new set of i-506, PX 5.5
Added distance....sometimesSo I've got my new Srixon i-506 irons and I really like them. I can give a review later because I have a problem and I think its the shafts. When I hit the P-7 irons, I'm adding quite a bit of distance. About a full club on the P and 9, and about half club on the 8 and 7. That's great! But here's the problem, it seems like my longer irons, especially the 4 and 5, are not getting the same added distance. The ball seems to fly off the face, get out a ways and then drop out of the sky. The in air distance seems shorter than my old irons.
I was fitted for the PX 5.5 shafts at .75 over(I'm 6'1") and the fit feels great. This is only .25 inch over my old set and my instructor has told my to move my left hand down on the grip so the pad is not on/over the edge. So the result is that the playing length is almost exactly the same as my old clubs.
I'm not crazy about the feel of the PX, but I can deal with it. Swing speed on a driver has always been 100-108mph.
