Your 6 iron speed?

Recommended Posts

Just wondered what your average 6 iron speed is (if you know it, or 7 iron)?

I think the tour average is 92mph 6 iron and 90mph 7 iron.

I've no idea what I was in my youth but average 88mph with my 6 iron today in my 'mature' years. I'll take that if I can get decent contact.

 

What's yours and are you a youth, middle age or mature?

Going to the college sim tomorrow. I’ll get a speed. Probably slow.

84 measured on Trackman about a month ago with 95 gram shaft. Switched to 80 gram shaft and my speed shot up to 85.

Mid 80’s. I know because I was recently comparing 6 irons.

Not 100% sure but I'd guess 92-94.

Around 100 mph for me. My pro says I am a bit aggressive with my irons.

Didn't have a 6 iron in the bag at MGS today so I pulled a 7 iron - 86 MPH.   84/85 with the pitching wedges I tested today.  

 

Forgot to put my age....I am 53 so I guess that is middle age

I swing 80 for the 6-iron I can squeeze out a little more but there really ain’t a reason for it at the cost.

7 iron I think is around 82-83. It’s been a while since I’ve seen the numbers.

Yeah, I don’t believe it either. But the rest of the distance were spot on from my before surgery on course numbers. Used to be 196 average with the 6. I’ll cut that out of the video and post it eventually.
