    I’d like to up my game. I am 73 yrs, old. With a 9 handi cap per 9 holes. I have a single plain swing. Moe Norman ,Natural golf.
    1 Iron Golf replied:
    Hi Amos! You can’t go wrong with any of our lines of irons since they are extremely forgiving for golfers of all skill levels. I would suggest either the Pro-line or Blackstone irons as they have been rated Ultra Game Improvement by independent Maltby Playability Factor testing. I am 71 years old and have been playing the Blackstones for five years. Excellent irons.

    What is the difference in your one length iron sets? Is there graphite shafts?
    1 Iron Golf replied:
    Hi! We have 4 sets to choose from and you can see the specs for each here: https://1irongolf.com/pages/single-length-irons. We only install our proprietary steel shafts in our irons and fairway woods. The design of our golf shafts in combination with our proprietary Shaft Optimization Process produces a perfectly balanced golf club (other brands typically use stock shafts with no balance criteria). Once this perfect balance is achieved the concept of shaft flex disappears and the golf club will perform at its peak performance level regardless of swing speed or strength. Our golf clubs are played by professional golfers and long-drive champions with extremely high swing speeds and played by senior women golfers with very low swing speeds.

    This balance also greatly reduces any potential vibration of the shaft, and that, coupled with our oversize textured grips, virtually eliminates any vibration you would normally experience with steel shafts. It is of note that many of our customers are former graphite shaft players.

    Also, we are the only golf club manufacturer to perform shaft flex plane orientation as part of our proprietary Shaft Optimization Process. If a golf club is shafted without regard to its inherent flex plane the shaft will try to rotate around its axis to a position of stability during the swing which creates an oscillation of the shaft and club-head. This oscillation results in the club-head literally wobbling through impact which causes miss-hits and is the main cause of “impact shock”. When the shaft is correctly oriented in respect to its inherent flex plane it will resist twisting to any other position when placed under load and will remain stable through impact. It is as if the club-head is riding on rails through the impact zone. Let us know if you have more questions!

    Hi Jack, the irons will be custom built to the length that puts you in the perfect swing position based on your wrist-to-floor measurement. Very likely they all may be the length of your current 6 or 7 iron, it just depends on your measurement. There is a graph that shows all the lengths based on your measurement here: https://1irongolf.com/pages/fitting. Let us know if you have any other questions!
