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

    • Oh yeah, I've know several. Not really giving up the game entirerly, but giving up on going pro. They went on mini tours or play events the (now) web.com tour and just give up after a year or so. They didn't really have a gauge of how much time and skill it really takes to make a living playing golf. If you dont win or make a name for yourself in the college ranks or big international am tournaments, you're really behind the 8ball. 
    • The video was not made for this discussion but a good chunk of it applies - just because you lift your heel off the ground doesn't mean you transfer 95% of your weight right. That's what you had to say in response to "I don't see how the left knee moves as a point of contention"? Again, the other thread existed because there was a huge myth out there about maintaining the same flex in the trail knee. No such myth or disparity exists re: the lead knee. Her head doesn't move off the ball much (well within the "steady head" idea, particularly with a driver), of course she has some tilt away from the target - because her hips don't sway back, and her weight shifts slightly to the right. Very little more than someone with a "modern" golf swing. It's not the only place there's "tension." And no, "loaded" may be a common word, but it can have a bunch of meanings. Your right leg is not the only thing that's "loaded" in ANY full swing in golf. Again, the wrists, the arm across the chest, the elbow, your ankles, your torso is turned… all can be "loaded." That's my point. One of 'em anyway. I haven't attacked whatever it is you're trying to talk about. I am, however, trying to suss out what it is you're trying to talk about. Because if it's "the left knee should be allowed, sometimes, to move back to the right" then I don't think you'll find much disagreement. You seem to think it's more than that, though. I don't think they did either, but the reasons they did it may have changed, or the amount of understanding we have of the golf swing has certainly changed, or what's important in the golf swing may have changed, or a bunch of other things. While writing this, @billchao answered that pretty well too, IMO. I guess, since I don't know what you're actually trying to convey here, I'll drop out for now until you can figure out what it is you're trying to say.
    • I could also just learn to perfect my draw as the article said. Become good/great at a certain shot type. 
    • From a fellow Sconnie, welcome to the site.  Many, many golfers play fades from a closed stance.  They are mostly pull slicers.  Basically your club face is just closed in relation to the path you are swinging on.  Maybe start a swing thread sometime if you want and someone can try and help.  Otherwise there is not really much anyone can tell you.  Hope you stick around and become involved in the site.
    • I disagree with this. Lots of fantastic golfers today don't use this move. People will adopt swing moves based on the style in a given era, regardless of whether they actually improve the swing or not. Think about reverse C finishes or square feet. Some top players play well despite certain trends, not because of them.
