Nike Victory Red Blades Vs Nike Forged Blades

22 posts in this topic

Anybody played both? I've been using the forged blades for about 2 years, and I love them. But with all the hype around the victory red irons, I just ordered a set of the victory red blades. Just wondering if anybody has opinions on which is better, though I'll find out in a few days lol

Ive hit both, love them both alot! I think the old blades are better if you can get a really good new set of them, but if you can;t get them new the VR blades would be better.

I just like the look and feel of the old blades, saying that there still a very very good club. I even have a set of the VR blades.

Yea...I think I'm going to play the VRs a few rounds before deciding if I should keep them or sell my old ones. I got such a steal on the VRs that I could break even selling my old ones, so can't lose either way

FYI, Nike's coming out with the VR Pro Blades in '11, so that might explain why the VR Blades are coming down in price:

Where do you see that info, I pretty sure they have the same specs as the tws, which are completely standard.

Hows the 1 iron to hit? I've always wanted to try one but they just don't sell them anymore,heck I can't even find a 2 iron for my Titleist 755's.

I have played the VR blades for two rounds and several driving range outings. They are very nice sticks, but I still like my old forged blades better. Might be a tad biased though Both sets were identical setups (+1 and 2* upright).

Lucky you, man! Sure wish I had a 1 & 2 iron in my old blades. The 1-iron is impossible to find.

It's pretty good, ironically I seem to hit it better from the fairway than the tee, I could live without it though, but I could never go without a 2 lol

    • Parsons Xtreme Golf, GoDaddy Founder Starts New Golf Company
      First time I had the 0311 7i in my hand, I look up at address and say, "How very Ping of them." My instructor, who is a dealer, looks up, smiles, and says, "Ya' think?" As you know, Parsons lured 2 senior Ping vets away to start his company.  The hybrids are also attractive, moreso in hand than in pics. Sound is solid yet feel at impact is still lively - an effective balance.
    • Hitting behind the ball and making deep divots...
      Hi there! I also took a look at your swing. First, mvmac's response is stellar. Study that video and try to replicate the swing you see in his example video, placing emphasis on keeping your lower body more stable during the swing. Some golf basics: hitting behind the golf ball (ie a fat shot) is almost always the result of not getting your weight over to the left side at impact. By getting your weight over onto the left side before impact you will be promoting a slew of good things, like coming into the golf ball with the hands ahead of the ball at impact and the shaft leaning forward, all things that will promote hitting the ball first and then the ground, and hitting down on the ball.  In your swing what I saw was a tremendous amount of hip rotation in the back swing combined with a sway to the right side. At the top of the backswing your hips are so open and your body so far off the ball that its going to take an incresibly timed athletic move to get back to your address position and onto your left side prior to impact. Instead, think of the golf.swing as more of a rotary action. Your upper body turns away from the golf ball while your lower body tries to maintain the position you were in at address. As you wind the upper body back, try to feel like you are restricting the hips and teyinf to keep them in the same position as address. In actualityx the wonding back of the upper bidy will pull the hips back slightly and you should feel some tension, like your body has been wound back like a spring. From there the correct move is to do the opposite, rotate your hips to the left, shift your body weight onto your left side, and let the lower body and club fall onto the correct plane. From there you can swing hard and through the golf ball. A good drill is to practice the forgoing with 1/2 swing, pausing for a moment between the back swing and downswing. Hope this helps!  P.s. fatigue will always affect performance. If your arms feel tired and your focus is gone, its always best to move onto chipping/putting.
