Recently I switched my irons from TaylorMade 2.0's to Mizuno JPX800HD's. I test hit the Mizuno irons and love the feel of them. I have found though after playing a few rounds with them that I hit them shorter (but a lot straighter) than the 2.0's. Hitting them shorter has been a benefit so that's not the complaint. The complaint is actually with the 2.0's..... I sold my old set to golf league partner and last night in league he made a comment on how much further he hits the 2.0's compared to his older set.
So this got me thinking so I walked over to his bag and pulled his 6 iron out and compared it to mine. His angle to the ground was much steeper on his 6... so compared the 7 and so on and everyone of the clubs were angled different. his 6 was like my 5, his 7 like my 6, his 8 like my 7...... and this was the same all the way up! No wonder why the 2.0's claim to be longer, they are lofted different... atleast compared to my Mizuno's.
Has anyone else compared the difference from manufactures like this or am I late to this party?
