Greg,

What you have to bear in mind is that there is a distinct difference in design function between irons, fairway woods, and drivers. An iron is designed to pinch the ball against the turf using a down and through type of swing which requires an upright swing plane and a descending swing arc into the ball. On the other hand, fairway woods are designed to sweep the ball from the turf which requires a flatter swing plane and, hence, a longer club length than an iron. A driver is designed to sweep a ball that is teed up 1" to 2" off the ground which requires an even flatter swing plane than a fairway wood and, hence, a longer club length than the other woods within a set.

Consequently, any driver that you prefer can be used with a set of single-length irons.

Thank you very much for the explanation, and apologies to the gentleman for posting in the wrong place (smartphone).

Last week I googled "can a set of golf irons be made the same length?", and found 1-Iron. The gentleman (you?) took the time to clarify the physics/science behind this system in a clear understandable way (to us armchair engineers). The call was quite long and I never felt like I being fed a sales pitch and he knew what he was talking about...I like that.

Hope to be able($) to try them pretty soon.
