DeChambeau's irons


Recommended Posts

So I think it's a really cool approach - science is cool - but it did occur to me that a 3-iron with a 6-iron shaft won't go as far as one with a 3-iron shaft.  Likewise, a wedge with a 6-iron shaft will go farther than one with a wedge shaft.  You get the picture.  So has he tweaked lofts to get the proper gap between clubs?

 

I imagine we'll be reading a lot more about him and his clubs in the near future, but I thought I'd throw this out there for discussion!

I read where the biggest change was in swingweights.....he added to the longer clubs to make up for shorter shafts.

Lofts are different; lengths are the same; head weights are the same.  The 3i is about 25g heavier than normal; the wedge is about 25g lighter.

 

With the same swing the lofts are selected to give the preferred yardage gaps.

Have you guys seen the large grips he uses on his irons? They're extra thick grips and almost look like the size of the Super Stroke putter grips. Those have to add some extra weight too. I'll be interested to read more about his reasoning behind it all!

I have read up on the subject quite a bit over on WRX. Yep with all the factors combined the clubs have to really be engineered correctly and yes those big grips have a lot to do with the head weight seems to me they would counter balance it quite a bit to compared to say a GP Tour Velvet. I also know there are some special machining things done to compensate for the extremely upright lie angle. If you see Bryson swing he is extremely upright and a tall player too.

Tom Wishon has also engineered a set of constant length heads and is training his dealers on the proper fitting methods involved

If you look at some of Bryson's WITB pics of his Edel irons you will see the heads are machined especially the long irons for a mass amount of what I assume are tungsten weights bolted on.

It is going to be very interesting from an equipment junkie's (me) standpoint of how all of this is going to work out in the future and the impact it may have on the game overall. You know brilliant engineering minds always strive to "build a better mousetrap". Personally and honestly for my game I have mixed feelings

The only thing he has done is make the clubs more upright and added a ton of weight to them. Yes there is science behind it, but in laymens terms that is all he has done, since almost everyone does that with their clubs, why would it be illegal for him to do it. He just uses more than others, So to answer the question, yes they have to be legal or he wouldn't be allowed to use them.

Sounds legit. I really want to try this concept, but i'm not down to cut my gamer clubs! haha.

It's a big risk and investment to get all your clubs with a custom shaft and fat grip. But then again, it may just be the answer. If the shaft is the same length and the club is the same weight throughout, the process of building a consistent swing all of a sudden becomes a lot more feasible....a lot to think about here

Last year I ordered a set of single length irons from 1iron golf.  I did not get big grips for the clubs even though I use jumbo grips on my regular clubs.  

 

The concept of the single length clubs worked fine.  I had very even gapping.  What I couldn't get used to was the clunky, super game improvement heads.  There was no feel in hitting the shots.  If the Edel clubs feel better, I would consider trying single length clubs again.  

 

The set had a 30 day return period.  (Note:  used clubs on the site are cheaper but do not have the guarantee.)  I returned my set for a full refund, less shipping.  

 

Some of the 1irons clubs are not USGA conforming, but the pro set is.  I got the conforming set.  

 

The 1iron golf site has quite a bit of information on single length irons--just keep in mind they are trying to sell clubs.

I Read somewhere he uses the Moe Norman single plane swing which requires more of a palm grip in the right hand and non taper grips which makes them look rather large.

As someone who is a one planer, it is intriguing, I already play 2* upright for ping and mizuno, but stock for titleist, no more changing width or change in posture. It sounds good to me!

I think the idea of having the same length club is so you can have the same swing with all of the clubs, ball position, stance in relation to the ball, it's always the same, therefore it eliminates some of the variables,m. This really does not intrigue me at all, Bryson has scientifically set these up for him, and the cost must be crazy expensive to do it. I've heard the first set he did took like 3 days per club to get right. No thanks. It works for him, just not interested enough to give it a shot.

nteresting info on the jumbomax grips! .I couldn't even bring myself to go with the Golf Pride MCC plus4 grips for fear of...actually, not sure what I was fearful of!  Change I guess.  I put jumbo on my driver and 3 wood and haven't noticed any negative effects.

And I I thought Edel said he would never produce another set of single length irons......
