So many factors determine how much you spin your iron shots.... Ball choice, shaft design, compression etc etc..
I put KBS tour 105 shafts in my irons to help me add some spin about a year and a half ago when I was regularly playing ProV1Xs, and with the added spin I got from the shafts I spun EVERYTHING back with my irons.. Cost me ~1-2 clubs on some shots. I discovered Top Flite Gamers, and they are now my go to ball. Hop and stop through all my irons, and can occasionally back them up ~ 3-5 feet if need be. Gamers are typically on sale for about $15/dozen Vs. ProV1Xs that go for $50/dozen. Those shafts are going to save me a lot of cash throughout their life time, and I'm playing the most consistent golf I've ever played! :silly:

I appreciate the insight. And yeah my shots are played below the pin and most of the time it's right at the pin. I wNt to try to club up one and try to get 2-3 ft backspin. Could find more going on than just playing it for the straight up hill putt

The ball you play will play a big part in spin. More importantly though, is the swing itself. Compressing the ball and having proper shaft lean will generate a higher RPM.

What's best kind of ball? And yes I have been working on the angle of my club. I used to get backspin(1-2ft) but haven't had some since last year,very weird
Anything that's marketed for added spin. Try the Snell My Tour Ball for a premium ball that spins a ton and doesn't cost as much as other Tour Balls. The creator is the guy who invented the ProV1 and TaylorMade Pants.

I know you meant Penta, but that made me laugh out loud.
