What gap do you have?

I have a PW, 50° and then the 56°, which you would probably term as a 'SW' although I don't use it for that.

9 iron is about 130 y and SW is about 85-90 y

In between have a AW which is about 100-110y and PW which is a 120 y.

All on full shots.

9i - 40 degrees
Pw, 45 degrees
Gw 50 degrees
Sw 54 degrees
Lw 60 degrees

The lofts are a good club and a half stronger than the Titleist DCI irons I had as a junior and half a club longer than my last set, this is where people think they're getting longer because that number on the bottom goes down but they're not realising that a 9 iron is more like an old 8iron

9i - 39° - 70 m
PW - 44° - 60 m
GW - 49° - 52 m
SW - 54° - 45 m

The distances for the gap wedge and the sandwedge are to be taken with a grain of salt, though. It is very rare that I hit a full shot with those clubs.

First set with jacked up lofts which seems to be all the rage these days. My 5 iron is the same loft as a 4 iron used to be :(

9 - 40°
PW - 45°
GW - 50°
SW - 55°
LW - 60°

My Callaway XR 9 and PW are 30° and 44° respectively
Then I have Cleveland RTX 2.0 CB Gap Wedge and Sand Wedge at 51° and 56° respectively.
The lofts on most irons sets now are so strong you have to know them to ensure you get the right gap wedge.

These are Carry distances and are obviously best endeavours. Also summer distances.

140 - 41 degree 9
130 - 46 degree PW
110 - 50 degree
90 - 56 degree (sandwedge)

50 yards as a guesstimate.

The most worrying I’ve got (and have had with my last set too) is the gap between my 50 and PW

Admittedly, I’ve not hit the course yet with my new sticks but i seem unable to hit a bladed wedge to a distance I would expect.

Worth adding I have previously (mostly) had traditional iron lofts

Current PW loft is 46 I think

Edit. Just added lofts as I assumed the OP meant distance gap
