Re: How do you hit 170 yards with 7 iron?

My option is to have them bent to the proper lofts to gap, but this now changes the bounce. I can have them reground, but at this point, I'm just pissing away money.
But even aside from that, it's a marketing gimmick, and its dishonest, which is my single largest fault with it. Delofting a club then marketing it as being better because you can hit it farther due to the "new technology" is a flat out lie.
