    The loft and length of today’s 5 iron is about what a 3 iron used to be I think. Manufacturers have been slowly tweaking this for years in the war for distance.

    I bought a new set of irons about 6 yards ago after having my old set for about 15 and could tell a difference in that. Lower ball flight and all my distances changed. The shafts are considerably longer...i should have had them fitted but oh well

      I was a +5 at one point. I still carry a one iron, and I have the same confidence in hitting it solid as any other club in my bag, ZERO! I just don’t play enough anymore. Haven’t played a round in nearly two years, though we get to the range fairly often as it’s just a two minute drive and I can have a beer while me and the boy spray balls around the range.

        All I can say is I can't wait to turn 50 in about 6 months. It'll be nice having an excuse to play from the white tees instead of the blues. As it is now, my 10 year old beats me at least half the time.

            Speaking of 1-irons, Lee Trevino famously stated: "If you're caught on a course during a storm and are afraid of lightning, hold up a 1-iron. Not even God can't hit a 1-iron."

            For those of you, like me, who've "enjoyed" the use of that club, you can relate!
