After playing the same irons (Ping with a 3* upright lie angle) for the past many years, I have decided to buy a new set of irons. I did a lot of research and I want a game improvement with LESS offset than my Pings. I did some research and really like the Steel head XR or the Apex CF 16 irons (they still have some offset but less than my Pings - would prefer even a bit less offset than these Callaway irons offer). I also know that I will need a bit more of an upright lie angle than the three degrees I had with my Pings - I will need four degrees upright lie angle with my new irons. I tried to go thru the Callaway custom fitting order process and I was very dissappointed to find that it looks like the most you can order for on upright lie angle is 3 degrees (I need 4 degrees). I know that Ping offers lie angle customization of 5 degree (or more) for their irons. Is that true (3 degree is the max) or is there a way that you can order irons with a four degree upright lie angle for your irons? (It would be a major shame if Callaway did not offer more customization capabilities for irons than this.)
@howlingwolf125 I agree your best bet is to call and order by phone. Just remember lie angle isn't a standard across the board. Chances are the ping lie angle stock is different then the callaway lie angle. There for it is best you provide them with the exact lie degree you are looking for not just 4* upright
If you need more than 3 degrees of change in lie angle and dont have a medical issue such a bad back or other issue causing a particular swing needing that much upright I suggest taking a close look at the length of the club.
You might just find you will hit more in the middle of the club and can bring the club around better with a change in length.
Many fitters will address ball flight direction with a change in lie angle, which is not wrong to a point. 3 degrees is my personal max unless there is some other issue driving the change. I prefer to address length first and then use lie angle to fine tune direction and turf interaction.
Callaway can make those changes in house.
