Same Length Irons

Set of Irons of the same shaft length as a 7 iron.
  [vote for,

A bit frustrated with my game right now. Too many clubs i can not hit well if at all. Handicap of 18 and due to a wager this idea is born.

Frustrated and challenged by my playing partner to a contest of a 18 hole match using only 4 clubs. I used a Adams tight lies 3 wood. A 7 iron, Sand wedge and a putter. Shot my best round ever of a 79 with confidence as these 4 clubs have always been by goto clubs.

My 3 iron is a waste of a fine divining rod that I pull out occassionally just to remind me why i hate it so much.

Enough of the story...

The idea. a set of 5 irons all having the same shaft length as a standard 7 iron but different heads. (3,5,7,9.SW).

This way a a hack like me can get proficient swinging one club length all the time and just switch clubs based on distance.

A nice reliable set would have a driver, fairway wood, 5 of these same leghth irons and a putter.

       Three words: club head speed... and angle of elevation.
Seven words, seven words: club head speed, angular momentum and angle of elevation.
Nine words, nine wo....
So essentially you would hit your 7 iron further than your 3, and your pitching wedge somewhere in between.

       How about a set of golfing boots with different heights of heel?

       Thanks Max, hard not to laugh, Maybe you can trademark "Plus x", as opposed to "Plus fours"
