I open it up to like 88*, makes it much easier
Granted at impact it gets delofted a touch. But still over 80*
you're not getting the point...enough of your science talk you can't get the club face of a wide open 3 iron to point at the target unless you're aiming way to the left of your target. not to mention 9 times out of 10 you would most likely hit the back of the hozzle
That's a rhetorical question - Right?
Now I get it. We have to get down on our knees to hit an explosion with a 3I.
You should really listen to your elders, son. We've already taken and passed our various geometry and trigonometry courses. We know that what you propose is pure hogwash. I've hit explosion shots with up to an 8I, and they are very definitely not the same as with my 54° SW. Try to open a 8i to a 60° loft and you will be hitting the ball with the hosel, not the face - it doesn't matter how low your hands are, you still have rotate the clubhead too far to add that much loft.
Show me a video of you hitting a 3 iron with a wide open face and then we can continue this discussion, it's impossible unless you're some sort of alien who can morph his arms and hands into awkward positions
