I dont think I've rrally ever seen anyone hit the ball too high. Hitting it high is a good thing.

Oh don't get me wrong, I know I am nowhere near the longest nor highest but I love the high ball I have as I basically get a drop and stop with little to nil rollout.

 

I basically find my ball within 2 feet of my pitch mark. Sometimes spun back sometimes just dropped dead.

 

Its why I have never ever worried about being short with irons. Inadequate maybe but never over concerned about it haha

If I knew it would always go that exact distance I'd shave 5 shots off my 'cap

It doesn't matter how far you hit your irons, so long as you can hit consistent distances with each one.

 

Just sayin ... :)

As per the post, I’ve got 7-PW, the rest of the set are MP-H4. I took a photo of the wedge next to another iron just to highlight the head and shaft combination.

Had a session at the range with the MP18s this morning. Very little margin for error with these. Your swing needs to be on song; anything not out of the middle is certainly felt. Ball flight from centre strikes is so penetrating - the ball really jumps off the face. I’m a little guilty of letting my ambitions run away with my capabilities with these, but they’re such a beautiful iron!
