The face insert is made from a high-strength steel alloy (twice the impact resistance of 17-4 stainless steel) to increase ball speed. The insert’s new variable-thickness pattern and its L shape (the bottom of the face extends into the sole) are designed to increase flexibility.
Low-Handicapper:
“This is a point-and-shoot hybrid. It’s foolproof.” . . . “A real gun. The 21-degree went as far as some 19-degree models.”
Middle-Handicapper:
“The clubhead looks a little clunky, but the ball felt like it would go forever. After I hit it,I had no problems looking at it.”
Hot:
Nike tends to innovate extravagantly, but this L-face design, with its focus on where real shots are hit, seems more understated and no less intriguing.
Not:
Nothing exceptional here in the area of turf interaction.
