For me it's 170-175..... sometimes shorter, sometimes longer. But when this is distance I'm looking at, that's the club I'm pulling.

I average about 190 with the 5i. It is also one of my favourite clubs. I dunno why, I just have a lot of confidence with it. The first hole at one of my home courses is a par 5, and leaves me with 200 yards to the center of the green on my second shot as long as my drive is straight. Most people lay up because there is a deep ravine which you have to carry 160 yards of that. Almost every time I make that shot, its a nice baby fade to front if the green. Love it.
I tend to pull hook my 5, 4 and 3 irons, when I get good contact. My 5 is anywhere from 120 to 175, and my 6 is about 160. So, I also use my hybrids for 175 to 200 yard distances. I have a much tamer and lower exertion swing now, so it will probably take lots of practice to get the timing and accuracy down before using long irons again.
Y'know, I've visited this thread a few times & read the replies...and I haven't replied. Until now. Here's my reply -
Now, before I get piled on - "This is a golf forum! We talk about this kind of stuff!' - lemme just say, this is one of the most irrelevant topics I've come across. I mean, why not ask how far I hit, say, a four iron? Or six iron? Why don't you ask me what I shot today?
Oh wait. We got a thread for that.
Okay. Here's my distances -
5i: 170 (there's your answer, heh)
