I have played MMB, MMB-17, TS1 and tested the TE irons. My default iron set is the original Titleist Ap2 from 2018 which is a more compact, shorter iron head than the Maltby designs. I build the Maltby irons to the same specs….length, swingweight, grip.There is a slightly different feel while swinging the Maltby irons that I am wondering has to do with the length. It feels like the head wants to rotate closed easier through the swing.

Does the length of iron head influence the rate of closure?

Does it influence face angle at impact?

Does the longer length influence a draw or fade compared to shorted blade lengths?
