Nike VR Pro Cavity Irons
From Golf Magazine (April 2011)
Category: Game-Improvement Irons
We tested: 3-GW with True Temper Dynalite 110 steel shaft
Key Technologies: A polymer-tungsten blend injected into the cavity leads to a lower, deeper CG and more forgiveness. Precise CG location helps to create a consistent ball flight from club to club.
OUR TESTERS SAY: Delivers a reliable blend of accuracy and distance control but doesn't stand out in any category.
PLAYABILITY: Repeatable straight, high ball flight; clubheads rip through rough.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: Adequate shot correction; slight mis-hits frequently find the green.
DISTANCE CONTROL: Fairly consistent trajectory throughout the set delivers predictable length.
FEEL: Ball smushes against the face on solid shots; easy to sense where head is during swing.
LOOK: Rounded chrome lines and topline do a good job of disguising fairly deep cavity.
Some testers find that mis-hits feel too harsh and sound can be a bit too clanky; a few testers could benefit from a more forgiving head.
$699, steel; $799, graphite
