The latest irons from Nike, the Vapor Speed, are designed to produce pure power without compromising forgiveness. Women & Golf put them to the test.
The Nike Vapor Speed irons feature premium graphite shafts for upgraded stability with higher launch and lower spin, to produce pure power. Each club is low and deep weighted for a high-flying, far-reaching trajectory. Modern Muscle geometry balances the CG in the centre of the face, while ultra-fast Spring Steel faces with NexCOR and lightweight, high-launch shafts amplify ball speed to the highest level. The long irons (5, 6, 7) have a FlyBeam reinforced hollow cavity to maximise energy return and off-centre stability, while the RZN cavity short irons (8-SW) combine stability with refined feedback.
Women & Golf say: ''Nike has taken distance to a whole new level with the Vapor Speed irons. The ball positively springs fast off the face with a pleasing sound that made me instantly love them and hit the ball miles (1-2 clubs longer), with an effortless high launch. It’s nice to see Nike steering away from the traditional pinks or soft hues associated with women’s clubs. The black and white styling, brightened by the tiny fluorescent yellow swoosh highlights, really works well and will no doubt appeal to slower swinging seniors and juniors too.''
