The golfer in my avatar (Harry Vardon) played with iron clubs (except speciality irons) of the same length and lie angle. He won practically everything when he was healthy.

My view is that in a conventional set the shorter clubs have some control built into them with a shorter shaft and more upright lie with the ball being almost under the eyes. When the shafts get longer, this control drifts away from the club design and rests more with player skill.

Hello everyone as this is my first post.

 

This is a really interesting concept as I can see many advantages that have been acknowledged in this thread. My question is...is loft and modern club head design suitable for this concept? I've seen Tom Wishon talk about the Sterling irons he designed around this concept. With these irons he focused on the C.O.R of the face in the lower lofted clubs and the use of different materials. I don't know, but it seems to me that for this concept to be executed effectively, thats another step in the direction?

 

All in all, I like the idea of this throughout the bag (one length for irons, shorter for wedges, longer for metals). If I can improve my consistency and hit more shots out of the middle, in my eyes theres a lot to be gained!

Long time between posts for me, however I hope that others may find this useful.

 

I popped into Power Golf Alexandria for the first time in a while, without being prompted by staff, I picked up and tried the Cobra F7 One Length irons, 5 iron, 7 iron and 9 iron.

 

One week later, popped back in, did the same thing and ordered them. They really are that good to hit.

 

I picked up the 5-SW today and had 18 holes on a big Sydney course, they are pretty pure irons (I have come from MP54s and Mack Daddy Wedges - very decent irons) however the Cobra F7s look great, perform well and are VERY WELL PRICED compared to their competition.

 

Try them, I had little expectation, but was very impressed.

 

Cobra has created very good irons here, happy to answer any questions.

yes, same length and lie in 5-SW (includ Gap). + 1/2inch and 2 deg Up

 

perfect for half and full swings in the SW, but will take some getting used to with chips and bunkers.

 

My suggestion to anyone is, just try them, see what you think...

Update on the Cobra F7 ONElength irons for those who are interested. Second round with them on the weekend, and again, they are really consistent in ball flight and distances. I was fit into the standard stiff flex shafts, the flight isn't much different to my Steelfibers, perhaps a little higher, but no ballooning at all.

 

I just recommend trying them at your local shops and see how they feel for you. not having to change your swing from 5 iron to Sand Wedge hasn't felt particularly strange to me at all, in fact, it is one less thing to think about during the swing.

I think that, if 'one length' irons/clubs were superior to the current set-up of individual length clubs, then they would have been universal long before now: The idea being around almost a century!

To be honest I thought they had already gone the way of the Nike Sasquash square head driver and the 1 iron. 

 

But in golf if you have something that works go with it.

I stand corrected they work well then!!  :rolleyes: 

 

I only saw what looked like a random assortment of clubs.
