Hello!

I am new to golf so please forgive my ignorance! I recently purchased a new set of golf clubs, Nike Vapor Flys, and hit them for the first time today. As I was running through the irons I noticed the club was "peeling" shown in the picture below. I am hoping someone here can tell me if this is a common occurrence with new clubs. Again I am new to golf and this is the first set of clubs I have owned. If its not common, should I take them back to the store or contact Nike? Thank you in advance for all your help!

Looks like a film protecting the clubhead is what's peeling. You should remove that before you start using your clubs.

This.

Hi All,

Thank you! I was hitting off mats, I will try to remove it before hitting them again. Thank you all for your replies!

Were you hitting off mats?  I get that kind of thing all the time on my irons if I'm off mats at the range...

Most range mats do that to the bottom of your clubs.  Nothing to worry about, just scrub it off.

PS - see if there's an area with grass instead.  Might as well practice hitting off what you'll be playing on (I.e. Grass).  A little easier on the joints/wrists as well (to me anyway)

Yup! Looks like he left a protective film on the club! Heck, I have a buddy who leaves the "wraparound" price stickers on his clubs. Never takes them off. We call him Minnie Pearl! The older folks among us will understand the reference!

thats from hitting off the mats, your good lol clean your clubs after hitting off mats and that stuff comes right off it's not going to hurt your clubs.

    • Apparently not very consistently.  Some days are better than others. Due to the dead scaphoid bone that supports my left thump, I usually have too much finger pressure in my left hand, leading to a dead slice if I don't consciously release through impact.. I keep my hand strength up through regular exercise with the devils backhoe (a shovel, doing road work) I was retired for a while but decided to reenter the workforce as a grunt, getting paid to exercise while being outdoors, while waiting for my young bride to qualify for a full pension.  Years ago I had ER  Drs who wanted to fuse the thumb. I declined. My regular orthopedic Dr says if I keep my hand strength anywhere near where it is I may never need it fused. I may be a bit -um- rotund, but I am still very strong for being 61. I am going to read that blog. Sounds interesting, and I will try the Snells, never heard of them till now. Thanks guys!
    • Day 52 - Didn’t get around to filming, but still took some swings; working on my setup. 
    • Day 318 Did a superspeed workout, then some work on backswing/takeaway priority piece, and started working again on hip turn priority piece.
    • 2018 PGA Championship: DeChambeau wins long drive 10th Check out the results from the annual long drive contest at the 10th hole of Bellerive during a practice round. This was pre bulk up plan.  The 2 swings he had were called "the fairway finder" and "the crank."
