My point is that if you are going to bend them stronger, they have essentially become the club you don't want to hit. They just have a 6 still stamped on them rather than a 5. If you want more distance you may just want to swap for the vr full cavities. Being that the split cavities are a players iron you need to be right on the sweet spot and de-lofting the club to get the distance you will get out of a stronger lofted GI club like the full cavities. The other advantage to swapping sets would be that you can make a little money from the switch rather than pay to have them altered. If you are a 25 handicap you could even look into swapping out just the 3-5 or 6 irons for the full cavities to give you a little extra distance while retaining the accuracy in the short irons. (hell if you have the coin, I would get a sweet set of vr combos)
But to answer your question on whether it is a bad idea...no, if it works for you. It seems like a waste of money to me just so you can look at the number and be more confident rather than choosing a different club...does that make sense?
