Looked at these the other day, and also the Covert 2.0 What does the X mean in the VRS X? Is it more of a GI club, or does it have something to do with the shaft? Or none of these? Just got me wondering, and I can't find anything about it.
Difference in Nike VRS and VRS X?
TheSandTrap.com Top Picks
The VRS X is a legacy iron. It is based off the VRS iron, and comes only with a Uniflex shaft (between R and S in flex). Dick's sells it for $299. The research & development costs have largely been recovered from the original VRS, so Nike can sell it for a lower price.
TM's legacy iron is the Burner 2.0, reissued and sold also for $299. It comes with the Burner 85-gram shaft, with an R or S flex.
The clubmakers offer the legacy irons as an entry-level set for new golfers, or proven technology for established golfers on a budget.
Many Big Box Stores like Dicks Sporting Goods sell discount versions of big name clubs by substituting with inexpensive/discount shafts, etc, etc, etc...... I wouldn't be surprised if the clubhead is modified too.
There is nothing wrong with this because you get what you pay for. Whether your budget is $300 or $900 for a set of irons..........the point being, there is club for every budget. ....now go get some clubs and tee it up!!
