I wasn't going to try to debate it because I didn't know. Just going off what I perceive to be a shorter club. Haven't cared to actually measure it

I think the length is personal preference. I ay mine all the same length, but have friends who don't.

Never a round played that I don't use my LW a number of times. My Eye 2+ is 58 degrees. Today, we played a different course with lots of greenside bunkers. Love softly lobbing over a bunker to a tight pin. I can close it down and hit a pitch that grabs like a tick on testicles.

My SW is 54 degrees. PW is 50. Even gaps, but I don't use the SW much. It's usually either running one up to the pin with the PW or lobbing it there with the LW.

Been experimenting with a set of "old man's clubs" a little. They were only in the bag a couple of rounds when my Pings started begging to be back in the bag. The new PW is 46 degrees, what my 9 iron is now. I kept the PW, SW, and LW from the Ping set in the bag when I piddled with the GI irons. Don't know if I can ever part with these and continue playing the game.

That is false!
Prove it. Mine are.

Edit: Since I know that you are a Vokey dealer and would certainly prove me wrong I went and looked myself and sure enough... Vokeys get shorter in 1/4" increments. Other brands and or models i've seen do come in the same length. So I am kind of wrong. I apologize in advance for undermining your wisdom.

Just because that's how they come stock doesn't mean they can't be changed. I made all mine the same length.

A quarter inch in a club isn't noticeable to me. A half inch is barely noticeable.

That said, Im pretty sure mine are different length...i can't feel a difference.
