With each year since Tiger Woods adopted the famous swoosh for the first time, Nike’s iron offerings have got better and better, and the new Vapor Fly model looks set to follow that trajectory.
The Vapor Fly irons (£499.99 steel and £599.99 graphite, 4-PW) come in a nickel smoke finish and will be the super game improvement offering.
The set features a Modern Muscle design that positions the centre of gravity (CG) in the middle of the face for added stability and a better feel at impact.
The use of RZN is no longer limited to Nike’s balls, and it features to aid lower and deeper weighting that encourages a higher launch, and in turn, a steeper descent angle to help shots stop quicker.
As with previous Nike irons, variable thickness NexCOR faces and FlyBeam-reinforced chassis help the faces flex powerfully for faster and more consistent speeds across the face.
The construction of the irons within the set differs slightly. Hollow RZN cavity long irons (4-7 irons) feature a metalwood-style construction with FlyBeam reinforcement for superior distance and forgiveness.
RZN pocket mid irons (8-PW) utilizes Nike’s proprietary RZN material to redistribute weight to combine stability with refined feel.
RZN cavity short irons (A-S wedges) also features RZN material in the cavity of the irons to enable shot making creativity.
Hollow Cavity long irons (4-7), RZN Pocket mid irons (8-PW), RZN Cavity short irons (A, S). True Temper ZT 85 steel shafts (£499.99), UST Mamiya Recoil 400 Series graphite shafts (£599.99), both with Golf Pride Z-Grips.
