Taylor Made made the stock Burner 3 iron at 39.5" and it had a swingweight of D3.5. By making this club 42 1/4" long you have taken the swingweight up in the to high E range depending on what grip and grip size you installed. You have created a very long and heavy golf club and you will not swing it faster. You will likely swing it slower. You would better off to try a lighter weight graphite shaft and possibly make the club in the 40" to 40.5" range and you might have some success with this club. A shaft like the Grafalloy ProCustom (TT201201) could possibly work.
