    I hope my distances are the same. I知 hitting a stock 9 from 155 no matter off the tee or off the deck. I can get more yardage by lowering my ball flight with the long irons but that is seldom needed.

    I知 basically the same with 7i up, maybe a little bit more on the tee if I want it.

    I use my 4i as a driving iron and I hit it 10-15 yards longer teed up because I swing harder and hit slightly up on it, reducing spin. Or if not slightly up, at least less decent angle. Whatever I知 doing it lowers the RPM痴, lol.

    Interesting you hit your 4i further off a tee then you do from the ground. I use my 3i a lot off the tee but it still goes right at the same distance as if I were hitting it off the fairway flush.

    I swing it a little different and by being less steep and maybe even hitting slightly up, it takes about 1k in spin off of it. I知 a very high spin player so knocking the spin down to 3.5k from 4.5 k can make easily a 10-15 yard carry difference even if initial ball speed remains the same. If I知 playing a very long par 3 and hit 4i, I値l prpbably swing it more like I知 hitting from the FW than a tee so that it can hold the green better. But using it as a driving iron, I知 trying to hit a lower draw that fights the wind by spinning less.

    Same with everything up to a 5 iron where I can hit up on it a little off the tee for more carry. Big difference with my 3 iron but I want that to be a low low club anyway
