Just wondering what the average length of 6 Irons out there.

I got fit into a 38 inch 6 iron but after hitting my Son's Nike Junior set where his 7 iron is probably 30 inches and striping it 160 yards got me thinking that maybe i was fitted wrong or maybe my swing and compression is a lot better with a shorter club. Im not saying that I want to cut all my irons 8 inches but maybe my 6 to 37 which is .50 under titleist standard length.

Anyone getting better results with shorter clubs ?

my height: 5'6, Wrist to floor: 32.5
J33 6i: 37.25,  32*,  carries 170ish
a4 forged 6i: about 37.75, 29*,  carries 180ish

J33's are my summer summer set and a4 are my winter, cold and wet weather set. Though they both say "6" they are very much different clubs. I am much more accurate with my j33s due to the shorter club length and weaker lofts. There are something about the Adams face where there is a hot spot that puts an extra 10ish yards of carry so my distances are inconsistent.

it's 3* stronger than your other 6i, which probably explains the 10 yards.

anywho, my 6i is 37.5" (standard), though my fitting numbers for the 6i are 38.31".

Anyone getting better results with shorter clubs ?

My 6 iron is 37.5", 31* at D2, it carries 160-168, and I am 60+ and 5'10.  Cutting shafts drops SW dramatically.  I can't imagine what the SW is of a 30" 7 iron; mid C's???

Right! I expect the full club difference but there is something about the A4 face that when I strike the ball It just goes and I somehow get an extra 10ish yds of carry. It can be a bit troublesome if you are relying on a specific distance from a particular club.

Got my clubs cut down to 6 Iron 37.5 and swingweight D4

My carry is the same @184 and the accuracy is unreal.

Cut down my Driver a shade under 45 and it is stupid easy to hit fairways. (for some reason my driver was over 46" directly ordered from callaway with a Tour AD DI and thought when telling them standard that it would come in @45)
