For me, i'm 6'3 with some pretty lengthy arms.. i've been "fitted" for .5 inch long and 3* upright.. then the pulls and hooks started coming, then went back to a standard set and wow i am striking it wonderfully.... so now my specs are 1/4 over at most, and standard to 1 degree up..  i'm interested in seeing other tall golfer's specs.. especially a tall golfer with a FLAT lie.. and i'd like to see swing videos if possible. thanks!

I'm 6' 4" and was fitted several years ago to a 38.75 5 iron length that's 2* up.
I believe for most clubs that's +3/4" in length.
Seems to have worked out pretty well for me.

I'm a touch under 6'2" and was fitted for +0.5" long and 2* upright. I may flatten out my scoring irons though because I was going left with them for my last few rounds out.

I'm 6'3" and I play standard lie and length, or maybe 1/4 over.

It has much more to do with how long your arms are, and how your swing path is. I have long arms, so that puts me into shorter clubs than others my height.

I experimented with more upright and longer clubs, and it felt good at the start, and then turned into massive hooks and pulls. But, I also have a tendency to get stuck and come in too shallow.

My wrist-to-floor is almost 38" and I find 2 up and +.5 to fit me fine. I do like to stand a little tall at address though.

Your specs really depend upon your specs/physique, and how you swing.

something to say. Others speak because

6'7, with 6'4 wingspan. I have been 1 inch over and standard lie forever. But due to making a couple of swing changes, I'm going 2 inches over and standard lie.

I'm 6'3 with a 6'6 wing span and use 1/2" long clubs and 2 degrees upright. Made world of difference in my ball striking. My miss is left though..... may just be my swing. Currently play to a 4 handicap.

Just under 6'3" and was "fitted" for my G20s at +.5 and 3.75* upright (silver) CFS stiff.  I upgraded from a set of Ping Eye 2+ that are + 5 and 3* up (white).   I'm gonna get rechecked later on in the season after hitting these for awhile with my overhauled swing. l also play with some AP1s' that are Std. L/L , Reg Nippon shaft and and are about .5 longer than most other clubs. Wish I had some video ...  All the best!

6'4" and play +1 inch (39 inch 5 iron) and 2 degrees upright (63 dgree 5 iron) in my irons.  Only 1 degree upright in my sand and lob wedges.  I've also had success with +1/2 inch and 3 dgrees upright - but need to flatten out the shorter irons.

I was 6ft1 when I got fit for 0.5inch longer and 2 dgerees upright.  I'm now 6ft3.5 and feel that the toe digs in too much and I have been told that I dip into the ball at the start of my downswing. I've been wildly inconsistent the last couple of years, whereas before I was a lot straighter.

I'm 6'5" and I have been fitted for anything between half an inch long and 1.5 long and anywhere from flat to 4 degrees upright depending in the LL combo. After experimenting a lot over the years I arrived at a quarter inch long and one degree upright (from titleists standard).

I'm 6'4" and I was Ping fitted into 1.5" long silver dots but they were way too extreme for me.  TaylorMade fitting a year ago dialed it down to 1" long and 1 degree up which was much more comfortable.  My current Nikes are 1" long with no lie angle adjustment and I have had my best iron striking season in years with this setup.  Wedges are another story - I'm still searching for a comfortable setup that doesn't feel like I'm swinging sledgehammers.  I have relatively long legs and shorter arms - my wrist to floor is 39".

Like Thirllhouse alluded to above, it's kind of a process finding what's comfortable and what works best for you.  How you are "fit" isn't necessarily what's right or what will help you play well.

I'm 6' 4" tall and now play +1/2" length and 1 deg up in lie angle to Titleist standards.   In the past I was +1" with some of my older Mizuno sets  but the clubs were just getting too heavy for me I am not gettng any younger!

One question for everyone - does everyone like the resultant D5-D6+ swing-weights of these extended  irons or do you try to counter-weight to get back to D2 region?

I'm 6'4" and play +1" 2* upright.  I hit a lot of big hooks.  I'm sure a lot of it is my swing, but will flattening the lie help mitigate the lefts a little?

6'2", like a lot, half over, 2 degrees up.

Does the fact that seemingly nobody plays a flatter lie say anything about the survey group, equipment or modern swings?
