So I have been using the 3 iron a while now . Fits in well with my setup. What I have noticed is the wind does not affect it. Everytime I have the wind at my back or in my face I swear it does not affect the ball flight at all. Even if I loft it when wind is at my back it still goes long.

Maybe I'm nuts though.

I find that with the hybrids lofting it up barely makes any difference to carry or stopping distance

I've never used 3 iron  ... because the guest player does not have it in it's default bag     ::)

You just haven't found the correct loft. I use it when I'm between clubs between the 3 iron and the 5 wood. Loft is very tricky. It's hard to find the correct loft for each shot and the longer the iron, the more difficult it is. Sometimes when the distance is only slightly below the carry of the 5 wood, I'll use the 3 iron and de-loft it thereby giving it more roll and increasing the distance. I've done that and hit the 3 iron 230 yards or so. My clubset is Tour Clubs. So if you are using player clubs you might hit it 220 or so by de-lofting it.
