Shortest stock iron club length

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

My brother does not have much money and he has been having trouble trying to find a stock club length that works for him.  Does anyone know (or know where to find) which companies have the shortest stock iron club length.  I would greatly appreciate any answers.  From the research we have done it seems Mizuno, Callaway and Nike are the shortest.  Does this seem right.  It might have just been the certain irons by the brand that we sized up.

Ur really only talking mm here if he wants shorter shafts best thing is get a grip remover, the t bar type ones work well and a 4 1/2 inch grinder and start cutting and put the grips back on if there reasonable will need a few more wraps of tape or else tell him to grip down

Thank you for the reply.  I do feel is is not short enough to need them to be cut.  He is a hair under 5'8".  He uses Mizuno's right now and likes them, but he was wanting to try other brands.  Are all standard clubs the right size for someone 5'8"?

Best club length and lie angle for irons (and these days, adjustable drivers and FWs) are determined by several factors:

  • Height
  • Arm length relative to height
  • Stance (some are more upright, some crouch a bit more)
  • Swing transition and overall swing speed (quicker/faster tends to bow the shaft more)

 

Also, shaft length and lie angle should be considered together. A good clubfitter can provide you the details.

 

You want to determine length and lie angle when actually making shots. Impact decals for the clubface and sole can help you determine where ball and turf contact are being made.

 

If you trim shafts from the butt, it will have minimal impact on flex. But, for every half inch of shaft trimmed, you lose 3 units of swingweight - for example, a change from D3 to D0. Clubfitters have various techniques for reestablishing the swingweight.
