I'm 6'3 with short arms, and just got fitted for my set.  It will be +1" length and 3 degrees upright.

6'4".....33" wrist to floor (long arms).....1/2" over and standard lie
hit is with so much authority
that when you find it
and it sees you, it is trembling.

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!

"especially a tall golfer with a FLAT lie."

I think your pulls and hooks could very well be due to the ball being too close to you i.e. upright lie angle

I am 6' 4" I have used as much as +3 on the course with 2 ounces of lead in the pocket cavity and 6 degrees flat.  I was trying to duplicate the Moe Norman swing and the lie board testing resulted in 6 degrees flat.  I failed to get the results of Moe Norman (no surprise)

I have tried + 8"  to  minus 2" or so. I am convinced that "fitting" clubs to length is way over rated and mostly a matter of comfort.  Comfort however in no way translates into playing better. I am most comfortable in the Golf Cart seat.

I have tried everything The lightest possible total weight to filling the shaft with lead or sand.

I now play standard length simply because customizing is such a pain in the rear.  I might add weight but even then I am trying to live with standard due to pain in rear.

I check the lies on a lie board and adjust my swing angle via ball position unless I must bend them. I have my own bending machine but I am avoiding customization.

I can change my swing to result in whatever lie angle I want.  Or I can change it to live with what ever I have.

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.

Almost exactly the same here, but I'm 1* up :)

I am 6'2" ish and have been fitted a bunch of times for +.5" and 2* up.  I recently changed my swing a little and hit a few off of the lie board at Scratch and Patrick thinks I need to go to standard lie.  I am sticking with plus .5".  I just bought my own lie board so as soon as the weather gets better I am going to hit every club in the bag off of it and adjust them as I have a bending machine too.  I plan to mark my ball with a vertical line as well and check the 913 too.  

I do not know my wrist to floor but I have long arms and wide shoulders.  I wear a 38" sleeve in dress shirts for what that is worth.

6'2" tall with 37" arm drop. Was playing ping white dot +1/2, but have settled back into some Callway X22. Play them + 1/2 and 1degree upright, but I have my wedges no shorter than 36" to save the back.

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 like d4 or d5, I've noticed that over the past few years irons have gotten lighter and mine are covered with lead tape to get them back up where I want them.

Stewart Cink is 6'3 or 6'4 and I remember seeing that his specs sent something like:

3-5 = 3* UP
6-8 = 2* UP
9-PW = 1* UP

I thought of this when the one chap mentioned flattening his scoring irons.

I'm 6'5 and play +1" and standard lie (TM MC's). Before I went to these irons I had been playing +1/2" and 2 flat (Titleist Standards).

6'4", wingspan about the same.  +1" and 2* up works best for me.

6'3" with pretty long arms and have been fitted at golfsmith for +3/4" and 1 degree up, but I don't like the feel so I am back to standard on Rocketbladez which I guess are a touch longer than normal and like it better.

I'm curious to know how many of you guys play off the shelf driver and 3w lengths, or if you cut them down.

I like 1/4 off lately but have always played 45/43 just because that was the way they came.

6'2" with a 6'6" wingspan. i play irons +0.5" and 2 degrees upright.

lol. l remember the first real set of irons i used were ping eye 2's with the orange dot (2.5 degrees flat) and -0.25" (hand me down set from my cousin). I didn't even realize golf clubs were customizable until a few years later

I'm 6'4 and play 1/2" long and 1 degree up... spent Christmas in the desert playing stock clubs, and did not notice a significant difference.

My dad (can beat up your dad) is 6'10" and plays something like 2.5" extra, and I'm not sure the lie... those things are massive. He plays a 48 inch driver as well...

I need to get fit again, but that's a different story.

6'2" here...

Titleist irons are +1/4" over length, and 2 degrees upright from standard.

Vokey wedges are still +1/4" over length, but 1 degree upright from standard.

910 woods are: Driver = standard length, and -.75 degrees flat; 3-wood = -1/4" short, and -.75 flat; Hybrid = -1/2" short, and .75 degrees upright.

Putter is 35" and 71 degrees (standard).

6'2, +1/2" 3 degrees up on mizuno irons, they tend to be a little flatter than most, taylor made id probably go 1* up since they seem to be a little more up than others, most others 2* up
