Nike Vapor Irons Are Nike’s Best To Date

The Nike Vapor Pro irons are a player’s dream come true. They have straight leading edges, and thin toplines with minimal offset. They’re forged from a single piece of 1025 carbon steel for the purest feel. The center of gravity located exactly at midpoint, combined with a slightly forward weight placement produces explosive, penetrating ball flights. The narrow sole width is premium for crisp turf interaction and ultimate shot-shaping consistency.

“The unique, Modern Muscle profile introduced in the Vapor series of irons both balances the weight of the hosel and structurally reinforces the blade profile resulting in immediately discernible improvements in precision and feel for our athletes,” says Nate Radcliffe, Nike Golf’s Director of Engineering. “In testing, most of our athletes comment that these clubs feel and perform as if there is more mass behind the ball with a heavier and more solid impact.”

The Nike Vapor Pro Combo iron is a midsize profiled iron that progresses from a long and low designed long iron to a classic short iron. The 2-7 irons also have a RZN cavity for forgiveness. The progressive profile is matched with the progressive sole width which has a beveled leading edge for increased forgiveness and versatility for all shot types. The weight is evenly distributed to produce high-flying long irons and piercing short irons. The machine milled X3X groove will increase the spin control and add consistency on every shot.

“The Vapor Pro Combo is one of our most innovative iron constructions to date,” said Nate Radcliffe, Nike Golf’s Director of Engineering. “Our precision application of multiple materials throughout this Modern Muscle design has fueled the breakthrough performance characteristics that our athletes such as Rory are reporting back to us. This iron has the clean lines and workability of a blade with the forgiveness of a game improvement iron.”

The Nike Vapor Speed irons are the perfect iron when looking to combine maximum forgiveness and traditionalist looks. The ultra-fast Spring Steel face with NexCOR technology coupled with lightweight, high launching shafts increases ball speeds and trajectories. The long irons (3-7) hollow cavity is reinforced with a Fly Beam to stabilize the club on off-center shots. The cavities of the short irons (8-PW) are filled with RZN to produce stability and feedback. The longer blade lengths and shallow face heights set up for a clean and inspiring profile.

“The Vapor Speed irons are for the golf athlete who wants maximum distance and forgiveness throughout the set,” said Nate Radcliffe, Nike Golf’s Director of Engineering. “This is the longest distance iron that we have ever created. If you want to hit it long and straight, this is the iron that fits that profile.”

Looking for More Distance and More Fairways? Try the Titleist 915 Woods

Titleist has improved upon their successful past designs with the introduction of the new 915 D2 and 915 D3.  The biggest enhancement has come in the form of the new Active Recoil Channel (ARC) and its ability to allow the clubface to flex at impact, creating more ball speed and lower spin rates.  Also, Titleist has implemented a Radial Speed Face which is a high speed insert behind the clubface.  This insert is thicker at the center and gets thinner as it progresses towards the heel and toe.  This allows for unrivaled forgiveness and distance on miss-hits.  They have also reduced the thickness of the crown near the clubface, which allows them to move weight further back and lower creating ultra-high MOI.  So what does this all mean for you? More distance and more fairways!

The ARC incorporated into the Driver is also in the 915F and 915Fd, which means higher ball speeds and reduced spin rates for these clubs as well.  The Titleist 915F has a larger profile head which promotes confidence both off the tee and from the turf.  The larger head of the 915F also produces a slightly higher flight than the Fd.  The Titleist 915Fd has a more compact profile head and produces lower launch and spin than the F version.  Both clubs have the SureFit hosel adjustments allowing for 16 different loft/lie combinations.

titleist-915-hybrid

Titleist continues to use the ARC in their hybrid line as well, so the distance increase and forgiveness created will be in evidence in these clubs too.  The clubface is as thin as ever, another attribute leading to increased ball speeds across the face.  The 915H has a more rounded profile with slightly higher launch and spin than the Hd model.  The Titleist 915Hd has a smaller head and slight offset and promotes a flatter, more controllable trajectory than the H.  The Titleist 915H is available in 18*, 21*, 24* and 27* lofts.  The 915Hd is available in 17.5*, 20.5* and 23.5* lofts.  Both also have the SureFit hosel adjustments to maximize trajectory and distance.
