What club is 26 degree loft?
4 iron = 26 (180-210 yards) 5 iron = 28 degrees (160 to 190 yards) 6 iron = 31 degrees (140 to 180 yards) 7 iron = 34 degrees (130 to 170 yards)
What club replaces a 4 iron?
Typically, a 3-iron is replaced by a 19 degree hybrid or a 5-wood, a 4-iron is replaced by a 22 degree hybrid or a 7-wood, a 5-iron is replaced by a 25 degree hybrid, and a 6-iron is replaced by a 28 degree hybrid.
How do you measure the loft of an iron?
The loft, is the angle between the face plane and the vertical plane the shaft is in, when the club is in the normal address position and the grooves are horizontal. Once you set up the club as described, use a protractor to measure the angle between the face plane (at 90 degrees to the grooves) and the vertical.
What is the difference between a 4 iron and a 4 hybrid?
A modern 4 iron has a loft of 25 degrees where a 4 hybrid has a loft of 24 degrees. When hitting off the tee, a 4 iron is more accurate and can hit further distances than a 4 hybrid. In all other situations, a newbie will find a 4 hybrid easier to swing and can expect a 10 yard increase over the 4 iron.
How far should a 70 year old man hit a 7 iron?

How much does 1 degree of loft affect distance?
The distance difference between clubs is created equally by the increments in club length and loft angle. The calculations here are based on 1/2″ club length difference = 5 yards distance difference and every 4° loft angle difference = 5 yards distance difference.
Is a 4 iron necessary?
For hitting into greens, the 4-hybrid is the best play for most. Golfers across the board hit more fairways with a 4-iron. The 0-5 handicap bracket is more effective with the 4-iron than any other bracket. Almost every other bracket hits it longer and records more GIRs with the 4-hybrid.
