Anyway to answer your questions, I think you should try some clubs at your local pro shop and look for that chemistry between you and the clubs. To start with it depends on how much you're willing to spend on golf clubs. If your Wilson clubs came full set like mine, note that (more often than not) better clubs come separately so you have to dig more money from your pocket. Keep in mind the maximum clubs allowed to be in your bag is 14 including the putter. So pretty much you know how much you'll be spending for a set.
Frankly, Nike isn't the top club maker in the world of golf. In other sports such as basketball, yes they probably make the best shoes, but again not in golf. So, if you are open to other brands, I'd suggest you try them all.
If you have extra money to burn, try game improvement irons such as Mizuno MX-19 or MX-25 (I read a lot of good reviews on MX-25) or find pre-owned Callaway Fusion, which I've been using for almost a year. For more forgiveness, try the Fusion Wide Sole or Big Bertha, but they're really bulky though. Or probably Ping G5, etc.
You know, there are more irons out there I could recommend to you, but preferences are to one's own. So again, try them out until it "clicks" and works out for you.
A very good website to find golf clubs is eBay. The others are EdwinWatts, GolfSmith, Dick's Sporting Goods, or even your local pro shop. The difference is retail stores offer you good quality service for the extra money. You can ask for their help to choose the right clubs for you and sometimes they give you free club fitting and extra stuff. They even will give you good advice for whatever golf related problems you might have. The interaction that's the good quality service. But if you don't mind all of that and all you think of is price, then go eBay.
Hope that helps.
