    With 6 years of play you shouldn't lose really any distance. If anything, you may lose a yard or two from groove wear, since the ball won't spin as much.  The performance or MOI should not change.

    Not at all.  I had a set of X31s that my dad got new in 1967.  I used them between 1979-2006 and still hit them about the same distance (7 iron 150 yards > translates to hitting a modern game improvement 9 iron).
