Why doesn't Titleist make flatter than 2 degree heads

I need a 5 degree flat head with 1 inch longer but Titleist doesn't make heads that flat can anyone give me an explanation why

is their a way i can have titleist bend them and then sign off saying i accept the flaking

Hi Timmy,  We can bend one of the chromed heads an additional one, maybe two degrees - we will not bend any head 5 flat. 

By adding length you are in effect making the club play more upright. Lie angle and shaft length go together to make the fit, by going 5* flat then adding a longer shaft means you went too far flat.

Go for 3* flat and standard length, should be pretty darn close.

Sorry that should be 3* flat and an inch short.

Why not make the 1" short and 3* flat - that way they would bend a 2* flat head only 1*?  You would need a light grip (such as Winn Lite or Dri-Tac Lite) to compensate for the swing weight loss of 6 points.

I'm 6'1" and play 1/2 upright and 1/2" short on the 7-PW (I use Excel RF grips).   I play standard length on the Vokeys (1/2* upright on SW and 1* upright on LW and XW) and stock grips.  I play my fairway wood and hybrid 1.5* upright at 1" short with Dri Tac grips.  I also use a 44.5" driver.

Also, a club 1" longer than standard is going tobe  6 swingweight points heavier.

Given this I wonder what I would do to get a 4 degree flat AP 2 iron?

Would that be 3 flat and 1/2" short to get a 4 flat iron.

The degree of flatness should be the same as the shortening of shafts (from the 5 iron down).  A standard 9 iron would be 36" shaft with 64*.  If you cut the 9 iron down to 35.5" you would change the lie angle to 64.5*.

Would that be 3 flat and 1/2" short to get a 4 flat iron.

It would be the same as the above problem, 4* flat is the same as 5* flat 1 inch long, you would also go 3* flat 1 inch short.

The other thing is that with a shorter shaft you get more control with your shots. 

 

I dont see how length and lie go together because i need the length so i am able to stand up and not slouch and i need the flatness because i want it to be hit in the center of the club face

You add 1in then flatten the club 1* you have basically the same setup as standard.

start with 9iron, add 1 inch, you now have a 9i with a 7i length shaft and 9i lie angle........now flatten the lie angle 1 * and you have a 9i with 7i shaft length and 7i lie angle, so you basically have a standard 7i with a 9i head,

I dont really understand the point ur trying to make and it still has 9 iron loft
