Say you're in the fairway with a good lie, the greens are fairways are soft so you have to fly it to the green - what is your optimum distance to hit a 6 iron. Assuming calm conditions, 85˚ weather, low humidity, even elevation from ball to green...

6i = 185 yds Ping S59, Project X 5.5

with an 85% swing, my normal swing, a 6 iron goes around 173-180 yards. My 6i ss is around 85 sometimes a bit higher, and my shafts are s300's. I am thinking about making the switch to project x or kbs tour though.

depends on the shot shape, but anywhere around 195-205 accurately.

I hit mine 190-200. I've got TM r7's 4-pw with Taylormade T-step 90 stiff shafts.

You guys hit it farther than the top two US pros. Top two US pros have to hit 5 iron this distance. Consistent?

Sorry I forgot this was supposed to be my internet 6 iron distance. On the web I hit my 6 Iron 203 yard unless I get all of it then it more like 214

My internet 6 iron distance is 310 yards, if I catch it all.

LOL internet distance.

LOL internet distance.

You'd be surprised how many guys on the internet can nut the ball 320 yards plus with their drivers....until you actually get to meet them and play with them. But of course, they are having an "off day"

About 160-170. I'm not amazingly clear on that at all, I don't get a good vibe from my 6i, heh.

I'm using Wilson Staff Di-7's with stock True Temper TX 105's. Listed as "uniflex" which has really got me confused and thinking.
