Nike Vr Pro combo irons

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

has anyone hit the Nike Vr Pro combo irons? I like the way Nike set this up with the cavity back, split back and blade. Im looking to get some new irons soon so any feedback is good

post #2 of 7

I found a brand new Niki cavity back 2i at Golfsmith last week for 75 bux! So I got it and all I can say is "wow". If the other cavity backs are as easy to hit as the 2i then I think Niki really has something. If I were to go to all Niki irons I'd keep the 2i cavity back, 3 & 4 irons would be split cavity back and mb's 5-pw.

 

Nikies almost feel as good as my beloved Mizuno's.

How are the v-rev grooves? I noticed that Callaway has the same thing in their new Razr X Forged (I play the 09 X Forged).

 

 

My next set of irons could likely be the VR Pro Blades, VR Pro Combos or the Razr R Forged and all feature more grooves packed tightly.

I think the V-rev grooves are from last year and non conforming, but I'm not positive on that.

My review of the Pro Combos just went up today, so I'd recommend checking that out: http://thesandtrap.com/b/clubs/nike_victory_red_vr_pro_combo_irons_review

I haven't hit the 2 iron-it doesn't come with the set-but I'm actually tempted to get one. The long irons are that easy to hit.

The grooves in the Pro Combos are Nike's new X3X grooves, not the V-Revs. They, like the new Callaway grooves, are more narrow more tightly packed, and therefore there are more grooves on the face. Like I say in the review, these are no gimmick. I tested them out on a simulator against my Mizuno MP 57s, which have non-conforming grooves, and the spin rates were nearly identical.

Aaah. There's the beef. I just had the nomenclature wrong. I've gotta hit both, once I get to that point, to feel the difference in the head. I'll stay with the PX Flighted shaft though, regardless of the iron I choose. I feel like the Razr X Forged have a longer blade length now, too. That might be my eyes misleading me.

 

Jamo - you haven't hit the Pro Combos or the blades on grass and/or on a green yet, have you?

I did briefly, but it was on dormant grass and the ground was frozen, so I couldn't use a simulator to get spin rates or anything like that outside, however I can tell you that there is nothing out of the ordinary about these clubs when hitting from different sorts of lies. From what I could tell the spin was as good with my Mizunos (just like when I tried it indoor) on grass, but I tend to generate a lot of spin anyway, and I didn't get to measure it. In the review I included a video about the grooves from Nike, where they spray water on the ball and the spin rates were still pretty good. Obviously you have to take that with a grain of salt. I would have loved to have tried that, but I doubt the staff at the indoor range would have been happy with me. smile.png
