So I will start from the beginning....

I purchased my clubs at TGW because I have had good luck there in the past as well as the guarantee which allows you to return them for full price in 60 days for another set. The fitting process was pretty cool and was the first time I had taken the time to do it. They fit me for shaft and lie angle and it turns out I am 2 degrees upright. I was able to try every club that was in the GI and SGI range and choose the Nike VRs over the Cobra Amp. Shot dispersion was pretty close on the two, but the Nike just "felt" a little better. Of course this was all done in side so we will see how that translates to the course. I will let anyone who is interested know how it went. I will also do the club review as best I can. Oh I am currently a 14 ....

I have played twice since purchasing these and could not be happier. They are long and forgiving, but was still able to feel the ball on the face. I was able to move the ball a bit, but mainly they are straight! When I went to test and buy clubs I never thought I would test let alone buy the Nike product. I love the look at address as well as the black and red....

Could you comment further on the forgiveness factor. I love the way these clubs look, and hit off the mat, but I need a lot of forgiveness. They are listed as game improvement rather than super game improvement, so I probably should get something else (but these look so great that I'm tempted.

I previously owned Wilson Di7 irons and was looking to gain a bit more distance with my irons. I tried all the big names Taylormade 2.0 and RBZ, Mizuno JPX800, Ping G20 and the Cobra S3 Max. Thought I'd give the Nike VR_S irons a try and WOW! These were hitting 8yrds further that the 2.0's and 12yrds further than the JPX's. Took the VR_S irons down the driving range last night and the balls were disappearing into the dark at the back of the range! Had 3 people come up to me asking what I was hitting, through the noise and distance I was receiving. My golf coach there said that these irons were amazing too. I am fairly high handicapper and these irons are perfect, cannot praise these irons enough. I hit a few out of the toe and they still went straight. You will not be disappointed if you do decide to go with these, but make sure you go to your local pro shop and test them all out.

  • 4 months later...

It's been five months since I purchased my Nike VRS irons so I thought I would share the highlights. I also went with the VRS line for driver and utility.

I have gone from a 16.9 to an 11.9

I shot 77 in my qualifying round for my club championship

Placed third in the championship (first time in match play)

They might not be for everybody, but they suit me.

I love these clubs!

    • A better way to say it would be using the leg to push the hip, here's a video of what I mean he's referring to the downswing but am I right in saying for the backswing should you do something similar, where you use your leg to push the hip rather than just trying to get the hip to turn clockwise   
    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.
