Launch angles

I have just invested in a set of Mizuno JPX 850 forged with XP 115 stiff shafts. I have looked at my numbers on a launch monitor. All my clubs give me a launch angle of 22 but I progressively increase in distance.PW 125 to 5 iron 190. Does anyone have experience of this?

Doesn't sound right.  A PW will have a loft of somewhere around 47-50 degrees.  For a launch angle of of 22 I can only assume either the launch monitor is just plain wrong or you are de-lofting the club somehow.

launch angle and loft wont be the same. Launch angle takes account of the angle of attack. Which I suppose is steeper with short irons and shallower with long irons. It is conceivable then that the launch angle could be similar. I'm not sure they should all launch the same though. The obvious explanation for the change in distance with similar launch angles is the length of the club and the increased swing speed.
