An accurate 7-iron clubhead speed is preferable to the carry distance as a data point for set makeup selection.

* – based on a 7 iron loft of 33*. For each 2* your 7 iron loft is lower, subtract 5 yds from the entries in the current 7 iron distance to obtain your recommended set makeup

Note: The Angle of Attack also affects the set makeup selection. The more steep/downward your Angle of Attack of the club coming into impact, the more difficult you will find it to elevate the shot high to fly and carry. If you are more steep than a -3* Angle of Attack as read by TrackMan or FlightScope, subtract 5 yds from the entries in the current 7 iron carry distance to obtain your recommended set makeup.

Examples:

Golfer with 150 yd carry distance with 33* loft # 7 iron and a -2* Angle of Attack

Set Makeup = 5 iron or 5 hybrid to SW

Golfer with 140 yd carry distance with 31* loft #7 iron and a -3* Angle of Attack

Set Makeup = 6 iron to SW

Golfer with 145 yd carry distance with 31* loft #7 iron and a -4* Angle of Attack

Set Makeup = 6 iron to SW
