I have been watching this one and I can honestly say that for the first time ever, I am pretty curious and excited to try a set of Nike irons, with the possibility that they might make it into the bag.

the irons look great and if they perform as initial reviews suggest and the pictures show, they will be very popular.

Anyone else (Besides Gropper) intrigued by these?

 

Oh, and in Canada will they be selling Nike Vapours instead? lol

I first got to test these (in the dark mind you) in August and was immediately impressed with the look, feel, and ball flight.  That was across all three models - the Pro, the Pro Combo, and the Speed.

After longer testing just over a week ago including range time and 12 holes of golf my opinion remains the same that these are the best irons Nike Golf has ever produced.

Key features I liked - minimal offset, even in the Speed model - increased bounce on the sole improves turf interaction - the feel is crisp and explosive - adjusted centre of gravity to exact centre of face for better performance on on-centre strikes.

Many good players testing with me were shocked by the Speed long irons and how easy they were to hit. They perform like a hybrid with more control.

Also offered in left handed (all three models) which is great for the Canadian market.  There are only 2 products (I forgot which ones) in the entire Nike Golf product line not being offered in left hand this year.

These are some very attractive irons. 

A couple of months ago I went for an iron fitting with Adam Holden, who I respect very much. I got fitted for Callaway Apex Pros (less offset helped with my tendency to hook irons). the only caveat was that I needed lighter shafts than I was playing. 

Tightest dispersion and longest distance were both combined when I hit the Apex Pro with XP95 shafts. 

I am hoping to see the same sort of combination of head and shaft be available in Nike.

The XP95 is a shaft option Reza.  

I don't have offset specs in front of me but I would say they are close.  

FYI...(Wearing PGA hat) Getting your path less in to out would have a greater impact on reducing than hook than the offset...Kiss

Thanks Scott. I believe my issue is that I release the club too early. Hence the right to left. Super game improvement irons just bring out the worst and turn them into hooks...

I am also really intrigued by the new Nike offerings.. They look fantastic. Nike has been on my radar more and more over the last few years. I don't think I have tried a Nike iron or driver.. I tried out the Nike RZN Platinum this fall and love it. I found it longer than the ProV1, every bit as soft and more durable. I picked up 4 dozen for next year already.

Didn't you to play a Sasquatch driver way back when???

I really like the look of the whole Vapor line. Not quite enough to get me to switch out my Ping Ansers (cold, dead hands etc), but enough to make me want to hit them up at a demo day at my course. Very curious to see how they feel.

I went out and tried the Vapor ProCombo irons and loved them. 

I believe a set of them with lighter Nippon shafts are in my future for next spring.
