    Hi! Thanks for reaching out. 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 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 1/8” oversized Lamkin 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.

    Can you make upright clubs for single plane swing?

    Hi Tom, 1 Iron Golf clubs are not method specific and are played and recommended by conventional PGA instructors as well as single-axis/single-plane (Moe Norman), PPGS, Stack and Tilt, Gravity Golf, Mike Austin, and other swing method instructors and advocates. Regardless of the swing method or address position used, the ideal position of the body, wrists, and arms are identical at the point of ball impact. Simply put, it is not important how you get to the ideal impact position as long as you end up in the ideal impact position. Consequently, since 1 Iron Golf *clubs are built to your ideal club length in relation to the optimum clubhead lie angle based upon the ideal impact position they will produce enhanced ball striking no matter what swing method is employed. Something to bear in mind is that since all of your *1 Irons are the same length you need to use the exact same ball position with each one and disregard any other instruction on ball position since these instructions pertain to conventional varying length golf clubs.

    I like the logic of these. One question, what distance do I lose say with a 5 iron, conventional vs. one iron?

    1 Iron Golf replied:
    Hi Bruce! Assuming the same loft angles, there would be no difference in distance. The single-length irons, however, would produce a much higher degree of consistent ball striking.

    Hi Anthony! You can see what they look like in our product pages and YouTube Videos, but the best way is to order a set and play them on your home course for 30 days. We have a generous return policy on new sets of clubs (does not apply to used/demo). Check out the options https://1irongolf.com/collections/all-products. Also, check out our reviews, we’ve been specializing in single-length clubs for over 25 years! Let us know if you have any questions!
