Will lengthening my golf clubs make them lose any quality?

Im thinking about lengthening my clubs about an inch. I guess Im not exactly sure how they do it, but it seems to me like if they add a piece to the shaft, it would not be one solid piece and make it less stable, thus losing quality on my hits. Not sure I am wording this right, but if anyone has any input I would appreciate it.
Im about 6’4, and havent golfed that much in the past. I bought a set from a store, that was basically like a set in a box type, that had everything included. Now that I am golfing a bit more, I realize that the clubs are about 0.5-1.0 inches too short for me.

Why do I only hit a golf ball 280 yards with 119 mph club head speed?

I went to golf mart today to get fitted for some new clubs. While i was there they measured my club head speed. A lot of guys I play with are often curious as to how fast it is, and why I don’t hit the ball further. My speeds were 116 mph, 115 mph, and 119mph. Shouldn’t i be hitting the ball over 300 yds with that kind of speed?

Do Callaway golf clubs (irons) make a huge difference in the game?

I currently have a set of Top Flite Stratas clubs.

There is a good price on Callaway R5 irons (about 0 canadian), and I am thinking of buying them.

Have people found a huge difference in their games when they bought the elite clubs? Or is it a brand name thing??

Will I notice a huge improvement??
