I hit my irons a long way compared to my friends but I have issues with anything lower than a 6 iron as I tend to de-loft at impact. I some times have issues with consistency and distance control.

Adams XTD forged

Biggest strength with my irons would be shorter irons and moving them right to left.

Biggest weakness is definitely longer irons launching flatter and not hitting them consistently. 

 

I would love the opportunity to test these. I have always played better with traditional muscle backs or players cavity, but tend to regress with more forgiveness.

Consistency, never miss by very much!

My weakness is my irons and my stubbornness to change. - But with my simple swing a more contemporary iron would be so much better.
