I'm not bothered by what the loft is, the club number is just a reference for me and I have no interest in comparing willy lengths

BTW, I play Ping i20's, and my PW is 45 or 46, and goes 105yds under still conditions and comfortable ambient temps

because technology is improving allowing even thinner faces and maximum weight crammed into smaller places. if you think it's all a con then can you explain why there are no jacked blades on the market

Jacking of clubs (blades included, look at the T100 above) has been going on since the 1940s, it's just gone exponential in the last 10 or 20 years and has now reached ridiculous levels.

I don't think the technology is a con, but the numbering on the bottom is.

so if its all a con then why doesn't a jacked pw fly like an 8 iron? why does it still peak hight the same as a 45 degree pw?

All golf clubs go the same height when hit properly?

exactly. now take the pw from that set and bend 6 dregees of loft of it to make it jacked. what would happen then

It would go further but peak at the same height, assuming shaft length has been adjusted slightly, shaft creep has been going on for decades too!

are you saying that if a pw from a set is made 6 degree stronger out the box then peak hight would still be the same?

Smash factor will be increased as will club head speed.

Below is from the LPGA, which more closely resembles our game.

Have you read anything in the posts above?

Surely all that matter is knowing how far you hit each club - what else really matters beyond that ?

I can knife mine about 180/185, normally on a frosty morning!

Yes but I still don’t see the big issue ?

Assuming a good strike then petty much yes, and more so if you adjusted the length to suit.

If you know how far each club goes that’s all that matters,.

There are very few standard things in golf.

As long as they conform !
