The loft on the Slingshot irons as well as any other iron ranges from 14 degrees to 60 degrees.Specifically, the Nike Slingshot 4D irons specs are as follows.Club456789PWSWLoft2326303438424655Lie61626363.56464.56565.5Length38.7538.2537.7537.2536.7536.253635.75Womens Length37.7537.2536.7536.2535.7535.253534.75HandRH/LHRH/LHRH/LHRH/LHRH/LHRH/LHRH/LHRH/LH
Loft may range from 19 degree to 60 degree depending on the specs of the iron.

you tend to use the woods for loger distances with less lift whereas irons are used for more loft and better accuracy

The number relates to the loft of the club and the length of the shaft. For example a 3 iron has the lowest loft and longest shaft. A 7 irons has more loft and a shorter shaft than the 3 iron.
Long irons are usually a 2,3,4 and even 5 iron. They have quite long shafts and have very little loft. They are usually difficult to hit for a beginner, and even a professional.
A 9 iron is shorter, and has a little more added loft to it, so you can hit the green and not go over. A 7 iron is a mid iron, and is a little longer, and the loft is less than a 9 iron so you can have a little more added distance than a 9.

Loft refers to the angle of the golf club's face from the vertical axis. The loft of a club imparts varying degrees of backspin on the ball, making it fly higher and shorter, as in irons and wedges, or lower and longer, as in woods and drivers. The standard sand wedge has a loft ranging from 52 degrees to more than 60; drivers usually have a loft of around 9-10 degrees.
Woods are used for driving from the tee, while irons are used on the fairway. The face of woods are angled less to provide more forward force, and the irons are angled more provide more life and accuracy. Confusing matters is that many "woods" these days are made from metal alloys.
I think that the ideal irons for you would be a game improvement ones. They are usually not massively oversized but are still very forgiving. They usually have a cavity back. They are usually classed as game improvement irons by the manufacturer. If you got them custom fit for loft, lie and shaft length this would help you a lot.
