I have a new set of Callaway X2 Hot Irons on order. I was fit by by local shop, yet something in the back of my mind is bothering me. I used to play standard length Callaway Razr X's. I then had different shafts installed that were about 1/2" shorter. My accuracy got much better! Unfortunately, the new shafts were just a bit too heavy for me. So I decided to just get new Ping Irons. Was fitted at standard length, and 1 degree up, blue dot. I hated the Pings. Tried to get used to them, but felt like swinging tree trunks. I know Ping is a great company and product, just not for me. So I took em back, and I am going back to Callaway. I ordered them 1/2" short, as it worked so well with my other clubs that were short.
When fitted, they said if you are 1 up at standard, then shortening the club will take care of the lie, so standard lie is correct. In my mind, it just seems backwards to me. I hope the boys at the shop know what they are doing. Does that sound right to you guys? 1/2" short does what to the lie angle?
