The new Tom Wishon Single Length Golf Clubs are called Sterling®. This is no ordinary set of irons. The length of every iron will essentially be the same as either your 8, 9 or PW and all with identical lie angles. This in turn, will keep your address position and ball position very consistent. The only real difference is loft. Golf does not get any easier than this.
So if you are anything like me, you tend to find that you can hit your 8 iron very well, with great consistency. So now picture yourself with a 4 iron at this 8 iron length. Perhaps it doesn’t seem quite right but as you can well imagine it should be easier to swing than your longest iron. This is what the Tom Wishon Single Length golf clubs are all about. Making the long irons way easier to hit. Every iron is the same length, same lie angle, same shaft frequency and the same total weight. The only difference if loft.
The other side of the scenario is that your short irons may now be a little bit longer. Your pitch, gap and sand wedges will now be the same length as your 8 iron. Tom’s goal was to have a very playable set of clubs that will not only help the less skilled, but the skilled player as well. The 4, 5, 6 and 7 irons actually have what is considered a hotter face and compensated lofts. With the overall reduced club length, the ball still should travel the same distance down the fairway.
Bryson Dechambeau, recently turned Pro and originally was using a set of Cobra Single Length golf clubs. This has brought a great amount of attention to the Single Length Golf Club concept. His set actually has extremely upright lie angles which I do not recommend for the average player. However the singular athletic address position is the key to his success. One swing plane for all his irons.
Tom Wishon’s Single Single Length Golf Clubs may be just what you need to drive some consistency into your game. Shorter club lengths will improve the consistency of hitting the center of the club face. This in turn will translate into a more consistent shots – for every iron.
Introducing True Length Technology
So as an added note, every advantage found in the Tom Wishon Single Length Golf Clubs, can also be found in a set of True Length Technology® clubs. True Length Technology® is my Award Winning Fitting System (Best New Fitting Idea – AGCP), which also promotes a singular athletic address position.
True Length Technology will have the advantage of slightly shorter long irons than a traditional set. The short irons may well be slightly longer than a traditional set. True Length Technology® has 16 length charts available, which means that there is a perfect length and lie combination for you.
This is a solution for those that find the Single Length Golf Clubs concept to be just a bit too far off the traditional path. Tom Wishon Single Length Golf Clubs have no change in length, where True Length Technology® Golf Clubs will have 2 to 2 1/2″ of total length variation. Traditional sets will still have near 4″ of total length variation between the longest and shortest irons. This can create difficulty as every club forces an address change. Both True Length Technology and Single Length do not.
