Why don't they build all clubs like this? We would have a much better life...

ive played for lil over 20 years.never everrrrrrr shanked a ball until about 3 years ago.they will come and go.you will try everything different to stop it from happening.i actually experimented different things till I got rid of them but they come back.they are supposedly mental but it really doesn't take much to shank a shot because your only talking being off by an inch and that can come from a number of things.i think its something that after its finally happened to you that it stays with you forever in the back of your mind.i bought a set of the Cleveland vas irons and thought man itll be nice to not have to worry about shanking but those clubs totally suck for me anyways.i could not get anywhere near my average distance with other clubs with them.i couldn't hit an 8 iron much over 100 yards with them but that was on the range.i never tried em on course but since my shanks have been gone awhile it don't matter.only paid like 70 bucks for them so not much of a loss.

Shanks occur when the club moves too close to the ball on the downswing, possible causes are

 

1) You are holding the lag angle too much and coming from the inside too much

 

2) You are coming over the top

 

3)You are casting from the top of the swing losing the lag too soon and flipping the club over on impact

 

4)You are moving your upper body closer to the ball on the back swing, not achieving a deep enough hip turn

I think biggest cause for shanks is a bad shoulder turn and getting disconnected with your arms and body.
