The Nike VR Pro Hybrid is an big improvement over Nike's previous Victory Red Hybrid.

The VR Pro model sees a more traditional colour scheme to compliment the compression channel on the sole of the club which Nike claim increases ball speed and distance.

Our first impression of the club when we got our hands on it was the small size of the club head, which appears to look more like a driving iron than many of the utility clubs on the market.

The polished and matte finish of the club face creates the look of a face-insert that again makes the club head seem smaller at address.

Any concerns we had with the looks were quickly dismissed after only a few shots. The VR Pro Hybrid is much more forgiving than it looks and the club's ability to alter ball flight and shape were impressive.

The solid, penetrating feel of the club felt great for shots from the fairway as well as off the tee and the Project X shaft delivered power and control.

The smaller look of the head will mean that the Nike VR Pro Hybrid is more suited to lower handicappers than the VR Pro driver and fairway but it is still well worth a try.

If you are looking for a hybrid that looks more like the old fashioned driving iron then the Nike VR Pro is for you. Nike look like they have gone back to the earliest hybrid designs for the VR Pro and the smaller head offers the better player all the control possibilities you would want. The VR Pro was easy to hit both ways as well as up and down and had a pleasingly penetrating ball flight. Definitley worth a go.
