New: Integra i-Win Single Length Irons!
Posted on August 1, 2016Single-Length Irons are the newest and hottest trend in golf today. Bryson DeChambeau, the 2015 U.S. Amateur and NCAA champion, plays all his irons at sort of a 6-iron length (37.5") and a constant weight (about 280 grams). Traditionally, iron lengths change by about half an inch from one to the next, ranging from just under 36" on the wedges to about 39" on the long irons. Head weights of the individual clubs also progressively increase from long irons to short irons, varying by as much as 60 grams from the heavier short irons to the lighter long irons (to better match the balance points with the changing shaft lengths). That's why you can’t just take your current irons and install shafts that are the same length and be like Bryson. The idea about single-length irons is actually not new. It was originally patented in the 1970s. In the 1980s Tommy Armour Golf put the single-length concept into mass production by retailing their Tommy Armoud E.Q.L set. However DeChambeau’s success over the past year has rekindled interest in whether the clubs help to create a more consistent, efficient golf swing. Integra i-Win Single Length iron is a fascinating departure from traditional incremental length sets to offer improved shot consistency.
- A big reason golf can be so difficult and frustrating is that all your irons are different lengths, have different club head lie angles and different ball positions. To play with all these different irons, you have to learn 8 completely different swings.
- All of the Integra i-Win heads are weighted the same weight and have the same lie angle of a #7 iron throughout the set. All irons can be built to the same club length of a #7 iron. With a little weight added, they can be build even to a #8 or #9 iron length. This way you can focus on one swing instead of having to learn 8 different iron swings.
- The same length design allows to have the same stance, same posture and the exact swing plane for every shot regardless of iron number. The benefit behind single length is consistency of motion: one ball position, one setup, one swing. These are the factors that allow you to only need just that one swing no matter what shot you’re taking. Golf got easier now. If you are looking for consistence in your iron game, single-length is the way to go.
