SINGLE LENGTH IRONS

 

Wishon’s new single length iron design concept EQ1-NX offers same length and high COR low loft iron characteristics while adding many new performance enhancing features to mark a definite step forward in game improvement iron design.



Features:

    • Enabled by the new 2-piece hollow body design, the Center of Gravity moves progressively through the set from lowest and most rear located on the #5 iron to highest and most forward located on the GW and SW to achieve more consistent shot shape and shot height for each iron in the set
    • The hollow body design throughout the set increases the MOI of each head by removing all mass from the inside of the head to be distributed all around the CG.  The hollow body construction also enables the CG progression and uniform impact sound between the high COR and conventional COR heads in the set 
    • Low number irons are better matched with their loft to CG position to achieve preferred shot shape/height and allow a wider range of players to be able to effectively hit the #5 and 6 irons to fly and carry with proper distance gaps
    • Traditional GW and SW profile shapes are combined with milled faces and a custom sole grind make the wedges a great choice even if they were standalone wedges and not part of the single length design 
    • 275g head weight with hosel weight bore allows assembly to any single length between 35.5” and 37.5” while still being able to achieve a reasonable range of swingweight/MOI (depending on shaft weight and grip weight)

I’ve been experimenting with various length clubs and I’m thinking of having a full set of single length clubs made at the standard length of a 4 iron. Standing in a more upright position gives me a more steep angle of attack, allows my hips to clear though the shot easily and allows for a more straight ball flight. Do you see any issues with this approach? What should I tell my club builder to do in this regard?

MIKE Please. . . . . before you would go with a full set of irons all at 4 iron length, do make a SW at that length and spend weeks hitting all sorts of shots with that club from full shots to 3/4, half, quarter, chips, pitches, lobs and sand shots. The biggest problem with a single length that is longer than a 7 iron is the wedges. Going longer than a 7 iron length with the wedges opens the door to distance control, drop in shot consistency, and difficulty in adapting to hit decent scoring shots when you… Read more »

COREY I truly apologize for the backorder situation with the EQ irons. Let me just throw the foundry under the bus on this one, which is definitely where they deserve to be for the delays. Diamond Golf got their orders in place at the factory in the right timeframe to have everything remain ok, inventory wise. The factory overbooked orders, then lost some of their sub contractors to other factories willing to pay double for their time, and our EQ orders all got pushed back two months from when they were supposed to be shipped. So right now after many… Read more »

Hi Tom, I’m 6’7″ and currently play irons that are 1.5″ over standard length. This puts my PW at 37″. I’ve been playing a single length from my PW on down for the last 7 years and love it. Since I’m already used to having multiple clubs at 37″, what are your thoughts on me playing an entire set built to 37″? I’d be playing less than the traditionally fitted 8-iron length, but does that matter if I’m comfortable with it? I’d presumably be giving up some distance compared to lengthening them, but it’s still on the long end of… Read more »

Clay In asking about a set in which all the clubs are 37″, I assume you are talking about the rest of the irons since it sounds like now, your wedges only are 37″. If you are totally comfortable over the ball and through impact with the 37″ wedges, then sure, you can do that with the rest of the irons. Everything would feel exactly the same as it does now with the wedges with the only difference being the different clubheads on the end of the shaft for each club in the set.

Steve Yes, way back in 2015 when I was finishing up work on my first single length set, we tested different tip trims to see if softer helped with the lower loft irons or stiffer helped with the higher loft irons/wedges. Bottom line was that it only showed any tiny little difference for players with well above average clubhead speeds, AND who also had a later to very late release. In other words, it did not really help the golfer types that would need more help getting the lower loft irons in a single length set well up to fly… Read more »

So if I have a player with eight iron clubhead speed‘s that are between 85 and 90 miles an hour, would it make sense to experiment with tip stiffness or been profiles to try and help them carry the five iron in for iron the distance they need and the height they need? Or have you experimented with building six iron through gap wedge at eight iron and taking the five and four iron into more a six iron or seven iron length? Do you think that would diminish the benefits of single length?

Steve At 85-90mph, your player should not have any issues getting the ball up well enough with the 5 iron at 8 iron length to achieve full proper carry distance that can be a full club more than the #6. That’s plenty of clubhead speed to do that. Only if he had a very steep angle of attack into the ball which delofts the club would a player with that speed be challenged to hit the ball high enough to achieve proper carry with the #5 at 8 iron length. If this describes the golfer, then of course you can… Read more »

Tom, once again your intelligence and experience are priceless. He is the forward shaft leaning delofting player. Lots of power and speed but traps the ball with as much as 8-10 degrees of forward shaft lean at impact. He handles the 6 iron beautifully but it is a touch low but he hits it so far it doesn’t matter as much. When he gets into the 5 and the sterling 4 his carry isn’t proportional. I tried adding a little loft but I couldn’t overcome the shaft lean. He plays the Wishon superlite shafts and loves them even though his… Read more »

Steve There is an old adage I learned years ago that says to the effect that the golf swing motions have the ability to cancel out or offset pretty much anything you can do with a golf club. Meaning that you really have two options only – one, to get him to reduce that forward lean or two, just add a lot more loft to each head to try to somewhat counter the delofting effect of his swing move into the ball. The shaft tip trim change is too minimal in effect against that much delofting of the clubs from… Read more »

It is a common and unfortunate myth that single-length irons are somehow related to one-plane swings. It is not true.

You can be a one- or two-plane swinger with either single-length or variable-length irons.

The two concepts are unrelated. I think the source of this myth is Bryson DeChambeau’s approach to the game. He is a one-plane swinger (in the mold of Homer Kelly and Moe Norman), and is also an advocate of single-length irons. But I don’t think even BDC ties these two concepts together.

This causes the hands to not be in front of the clubhead at impact so there is actually more dynamic loft on the head at impact, which is where the high shots come from.

Simon Most golfers would experience a loss of around 2 to 3mph in clubhead speed when decreasing the length of an iron by one inch. That would drop the carry distance by 5-8 yards per iron perhaps. However some golfers who might have an early release of the wrist hinge angle would not see very much loss of speed or distance. Please be sure to realize that if in the beginning you are not very consistent with the wedges at 37.5″, keep working with them for at least 2-3 weeks to find if you do start to get more used… Read more »

JASON It is possible to install a 0.355 taper tip shaft into the 0.370 parallel bore of the EQ1s, but it requires shimming the shaft to take up the space between the bore and the tip. This is a fairly routine clubmaking operation but it is one that the clubmaker needs proper technique and practice to be sure it is done right so the shafts stay permanently in the hosel. Do not ever let the bore diameter of a clubhead tell you what shaft to use. You always, always choose the shaft that best matches your strength, tempo, downswing tempo… Read more »

It can be different for different golfers depending on all the differences in their swing characteristics. But in general, too heavy tends to enhance the chance of a toe hit more while too light can lean toward a heel side impact.
