For those gaming strong lofted long irons, what’s your top end set up?

My 5i is 23.5 degrees. Mavrik Pro. I skip the 4i and go straight to a 915h 3h @ 21 degrees. Then a Cobra f9 5w @ 18. Then a 915f 3w at 15 and cobra f9 driver at 10.5.

So it's basically 3 traditional woods, a 3h that fills a few different roles between that and the irons, and then a 5i that is better off the tee for me than the ground, if I'm being honest.

The 5i is my worst club in the bag. All shafts are r flex.

Strongest loft is my 6i at 23 degrees.

I have a 2 hybrid set to 16* in between my driving iron and 3 metal.  15 to 20 yard gaps.  It works for me.

My irons are Mavrik Pros and I stop at a 6 iron at 26.5. I did have a Mavrik Max 5 iron at 23* but replaced it with a Hybrid at the same loft. I then go 20* Super Hybrid (the orange one), 16.5* 4w, and driver. The set up seems to work well enough for me. The super is the only club up top right now that may or may not be safe if I can find a used 7 wood that I want to try. I'm also open to a 278 hybrid to try in place of the 6 iron if I can come across and 818 with an atmos black like my 23* version.


I play courses between 6000 and 6400 yards and don't often have second shots with longer then 7 (30.5*) or 8 (34.5) irons unless its a par 5 in which case I'm probably not going for it anyway unless I have a lot of room around the green.

I play Driver 10.5°, 17° 4 wood, 20.5° and 23° hybrids and then my longest iron is 24°. In previous sets this was my 4 iron but in my current set it is a 5 iron. FWIW I find the 24° 5 iron much easier to hit than previous model 24° 4 irons. Maybe the number stamped on the bottom DOES matter. 🤔 Or maybe it is the shorter shaft length? 🙂 Either way I'm loving my new, strong lofted, 'distance' irons.
