The VR Forged has been redesigned to include three new sole grinds: Narrow (high bounce for open-face shots), Wide (low bounce for steep swings and bunker shots) and Standard (medium bounce for versatility). The 1025 carbon-steel head features wider grooves, sharper edges and more surface roughness between the grooves.
"This is a classic shape. Nothing bothered me about this wedge at all."..."Took a proper divot and the right amount of sand."
"You can lay it open, and the sole is still under the ball."
Nike succeeds in improving groove performance, but its grind options might be even more useful to golfers.
The shiny chrome finish has some glare issues.
