If it's not an MOI matched set of clubs it's also possible that your 8 iron has the closest to optimum MOI for your swing. Plus it's a length that's easy to handle anyway.
My set is not MOI matched for me, but I think I just happens to currently fit my needs. They are all really comfortable to hit.
As of late, the 8i just seems to be the right club for most of my shots as far as distance is concerned.
The easiest clubs to hit are the 52 degree, PW, 9i, 8i, 7i. Getting better with the 6i and 5i, but probably still need a few weeks of practice to get okay with them. I can't get the desired flights with the 4i (did it a few times) and 3i (did it once).
Good to know that the 8i is a generally used option. I feel that my hybrids or woods would have too much uncontrollable power to be of any good close up.
