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

Delofting is for distance, and distance only. The companies make you think it has some practical purpose to get you to believe the technology is actually what hits it farther.
Here's an example.
Taylormade Burner: VCOG - 0.911"
Titleist MB Forged: VCOG - 0.793"
Nike Victory Red Blade: VCOG - 0.726"
Ping Rapture V2: VCOG - 0.780"
Nike Slingshot HL: VCOG - 0.798"
Lowest center of gravity? The Nike Blade, followed by the Ping, then the Titleist blade.
