The loft angle should change 3 to 4 degrees from one iron to the next.
Major club manufacturers (Callaway, Taylormade, Ping, Titleist) do not double check and most sets are sent out with inaccurate loft angles.
Tom Rustad will ensure your clubs are calibrated using the best machine in the business - the Mitchell Steel Angle Machine.

The loft angle of each of your irons is the angle between the face and a vertical plane. These loft angles are designed to exact specifications and should change consistently from iron to iron. Unfortunately, major club manufacturers like Callaway, Taylormade, Titleist and Ping generally are unable to manufacture clubs with the exact loft that they set out to produce. The only way to ensure clubs leave the factory ‘on spec’ is to check and adjust them before they go out the door. However, when manufacturing millions of clubs, they do not choose to spend the time or effort to do this.
Your irons should have loft differences of 3 degrees between the 3, 4 and 5 irons. 4 degree differences should be the norm between the 6, 7, 8, 9 and pitching wedge. Your standard 3 irons specs are 21 or 22 degrees and the pitching wedge is 46, 47 or 48 degrees. This ensures distance consistencies from iron to iron. The problem is that your irons are probably out of spec if you haven’t had them checked and adjusted in a while, if ever. Call or email to set up a time when we can stop by and take care of you. Pickup and delivery are part of the deal.
