OK, not much strength, recovering from a long illness. Distance is way down, even with burner 2.0 irons instead of 24 year old Wilson's. Say 130-135 carry for a 7 iron
I got 3-5 Taylormade rescue/hybrid, and love them. They go straighter and farther than the corresponding irons. Some of that of course is due to the fact the hybrids are longer, and the nature of the head.
But I still need to carry a 5 iron to fill a gap twixt the 5 hybrid and the 6 iron.
I would think graphite shafts might give me more swing speed -> more distance, and I could lose the 5 iron and carry another wedge?
Also the graphite shafts seem kinder to my 53 year old hands and elbows.
