Subject: Re: Another set of one length clubs on the market
In reply to: Pedro 's message, "Re: Another set of one length clubs on the market" on 07:47:16 04/02/16 Sat

(mainly) the lofting of the clubs.

(secondly) the offset and bounce between clubs seems to vary...not sure why this would be...the clubs are meant to be swung the same way.

Tom says that high lifted irons fly too far and low lofted irons don't go far enough (distance compression)

Tom's set is 5 iron to sand wedge, so let compare just those clubs between his set and the 1iron set.

Also, Tom's set is meant to be built to an 8 iron length, so let's compare 8 iron length sets.

Sterling sand wedge, 55*
1 iron sand wedge, 55*

If Tom thought the high lofted clubs went too far, why would he not weaken the loft of the sand wedge.

Sterling 8 iron, 35*
1 iron 8 iron, 39*

If all the clubs are built to 8 iron length, why would the Sterling 8 iron be built 4* strong? (it's a 7 iron with an 8 stamped on the bottom).

Sterling 5 iron, 23*
1 iron 4 iron, 23*

The Sterling again is one club 'strong', but the 8 iron is also one club strong, so how does this fix the compression issue of the low lofted clubs?

The way I think about it. Either take the 1 iron stance and loft should, from club to club be 4* or...take Tom's stance and vary lofts, but the 8 iron should be an 8 iron loft and the high lofted clubs should be progressively weaker and low lofted clubs should be progressively stronger.

My 2 cents.
