Subject: Advantages of Switching to 1 Iron hybrid

I am an 81 year old senior still at it and interested how the one iron system can help me.

I currently play with Callaway Razr HL combo irons and hybrids of course with senior flex shafts. The HL hybrids run from 4H to 7H and HL irons run from 8i to Gap wedge. In addition I have conventional Cleveland Sand wedge and Lob wedge. Woods consist of a Nicklaus Dual Point 460 CC Driver with a very light special shaf, 3 and 5 Diablo Edge Woods.

I am in pretty good shape for my age but seem to have lost significant swing speed.

I get my diver out around 180 yards, 3 Wood almost as far and 5 Wood 150 to 165 yards. I use a shut faced Mike Austin type swing. As I get older my swing sets up more smoothly to the longer clubs especially my 5 wood which is 42 inches long. I hit the hybrids much better than the irons ( 8 though A). The irons have been a problem lately

The prospects of a single length shaft really has my interest especially maybe in hybrids.

However my WTF is 34.5 inches. Does this mean that the length would be only that of an 8 iron which is much shorter than that 5 wood I am hitting well.

Are there any seniors out there, my age, that have made the transition to these clubs and is the approximate 8 iron length for my WTF 34 .5 inch measurement ?
