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!

    • In OK, schools are not legally allowed to require masks, even for those who are too young to get vaccinated.  😞 I'm glad to hear that the vaccine can make keys stick to your head.  Maybe it will work on the five simple keys from a while back?  
    • And almost as if Florida is trying to double down on it, -->   Being a resident of SW Missouri, I guess I shouldn't throw stones.  It's almost like they're having a competition, except they've forgotten that LSW.
    • Day 1: Starting over because I keep forgetting to post. More chipping/pitching COVID-19 drills with new wedges. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron. 
    • My usual dbl bogie- bogie- bogie start till the back let me swing. Settled in and was 4 over at the turn after an additional bogie nullified by a bird.  Was even on the back till we hit a log jam on the tee of 15. lost concentration and bogied in. 80.  I would like to add, I wasn't having a particularly  good ball striking day. I could have easily shot a lot worse, but the forgiveness of the T300s and a good day with the flat stick kept me out of the mid 80s.  
    • Day 157.  I spent ten minutes hitting balls with my 6-iron indoors.  I'll be playing tomorrow, and I would have liked to get out to practice chipping and putting on a real green, but it wasn't in the cards for today's plans.  I am glad I at least got some practice in, though.  Hmm... I see Boogie did Superspeed.  I'm not sure why I put mine away a few months ago, but I need to get them back out and get back to it.
