Nike studied the impact points of high-handicappers and found they tend to hit iron shots low on the face and toward the toe. Therefore, the company designed the face to maximize results in that area. A “powerbow” on the back accounts for 30 percent of the head weight.
Middle-Handicapper:
“There’s a continuity to this set that was missing on many of the others. The turf interaction is the best that I’ve seen, too.” . . . “These are like updated Slingshot irons, and I had a crush on those.”
Hot:
Nike’s best iron this year might be its least expensive. The VR_S is the company’s nicest-looking iron in some time, and it comes with a swanky Mitsubishi Fubuki K shaft.
Not:
You can see just a hint of the “powerbow” at address in the long and middle irons. That’s a shame.
