Hey guys I just got some clubs from my dad and they look really nice, unfortunately I asked him to get them larger than my old ones, since I've grown a lot over the past few years. I don't want to ask him for extensions on my clubs if they're the right fit, but how long should clubs be for a person thats 6'6?
Because I'm pretty damn tall and they feel a bit akward, because my back hurts when using them..what size should the clubs be?

you gotta get down and talk to your local club pro

they can recommend the correct specs for you

How old are you? I ask because the time it took me to go from 6'6" to 6'8" was (it seems) a matter of days! Go to the ping website and they have a web fitting guide there. That will get you close, but I agree you should go be measured at your local golf shop. Its not your height, but the distance from your wrists to the floor. If you have ape-like arms, you may need to shorten the clubs! I would guess, without seeing your body type or anything, from 3/4" to 1" would probably be in the ballpark. Good luck from another tall golfer!
