Subject: ! iron lofts

Have the lofts changed in the pro line irons in the last year?

Michael,

Yes. We have made the loft angles 2º stronger which, in effect, adds a #2 iron to the set.

David, So am I to assume that through your intensive research and testing that the 2 degree stronger loft would serve me better? I love my clubs and they have made me a much more consistent scorer and striker of the ball. Your thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks

Michael,

The stronger loft angles actually mean nothing. The important point is to know your loft angles and your distances with each. Trying to equate an iron's designated number in relation to distance is absolutely the wrong thing to do and yet every amateur golfer does this - believe me, the pros do not think in terms of iron numbers, but rather, loft angles.

Don't see a 2 iron added to any line of your clubs as of this date; are you planning to add a 2 iron to the pro line version in 2019?

Michael,

We will not be adding additional irons to any of our 3 lines of 1 Irons. Realistically, the loft angle of our Pro-line #3 iron is 17º which is equal to or stronger than any #2 iron I have ever seen on the market.

David, what was the reasoning behind strengthening the lofts 2 degrees on the Prolines? By the way, what year did you first produce the prolines?
Thanks!

I strengthened the loft angles for professional golfers and extremely low handicap golfers who have very high swing speeds and prefer stronger loft angles.

So as a 67 yo amateur picking up golf again after a couple decades, the Pro-Lines or Blackstones would be the wrong clubs, or would I just be using different clubs than the low handicap golfers? (I like the aesthetics and features on the Blackstones a lot.)

Thanks in advance for your ideas on this - was going to pull the trigger on an order tonight but will await your answer.

Draenar,

Both the Pro-line and the Blackstone irons are ideal for either the newbie golfer or the seasoned low handicapper. Being extremely forgiving (Ultra Game Improvement rating per the Maltby Playability Factor testing), they outperform any game improvement iron on the market.

So, does this mean that older Pro-line clubs are 2 degrees higher loft than what is listed on the website?

Jeffrey,

Yes, that is correct.

OK, thanks. No problems here with the lofts I have. Great clubs!
