I just hit a few shoots with my 7i on a trackman. Swing speed 83 ball speed 109 smash 1.32 vert launch 22.6 spin 5396 height 32yds. The number that stands out is the vertical launch how can I lower this?

First question is, why do you want to lower it?  Assuming that you think your ball flight is too high there are several things you can do to lower your launch:  move the ball back in your stance, 'cut off' your finish in a more punch shot manner, reduce your use of wrists and increase core + arms...  Also the fit of your clubs could be an answer -- you could test some different shafts to see if the launch goes down, such as heavier or different flex...

I used to work for a clubfitting company that uses Trackman.  The other number you needed  to look at was descent angle. Based off of your numbers, I'd guess your descent angle is probably about 46-48 degrees. While your launch angle may be higher than you would like,  your spin is pretty low for a 7 iron.  If you are looking for more of a 'point and shoot' ball flight, then these aren't bad numbers.  If you want to work the ball more, you would want to lower launch and increase spin.  If you change nothing but your launch angle lower, then you will lose carry distance. Savvy's point about shafts is spot on about shafts.  Might also want to look at the amount of offset your irons have too.  More offset clubs tend to launch the ball higher.

It was 48.7. The wind has a major affect on my ball. I am currently playing s400. I wasn't taking full swings so my swing speed will be a little higher. Would a x100 be to much? Thanks for the replies

Hard to make a general statement that they would be right or wrong.  Only way to be sure is to hit them and compare.

your swing speed isnt hight enough for X100 unless you have a really short quick swing. my 7 iron speed is 88mph, and im a perfect fit for S300, but I have smooth tempo

by your stats, id say you should try hitting down on the ball alittle more, im guessing your a picker, and you hit a draw?
