The Nike VR_S irons uses the PowerBow features from previous irons to move the weight back and low to increase the forgiveness of the clubs and to make them easier to get in the air. It is a dramatic design feature that we like, but it does mean the longer irons have bulge behind the head that you can see at address that may put some people off.
At impact this also meant that the mid and long irons also sounded a bit hollow. However the oversized heads were very easy to get up and away on a mid to high ball flight. The NexCor face did seem to give a little more ball speed and together with the stronger lofts, the Nike VRS irons do deliver distance.
There is a small offset so we could see some mid handicappers using some of the longer irons in a better player's set, but otherwise the VR_S irons are really for mid to high handicap game improvers.

Hi I'm a high handicapper and have been using these clubs recently.
My first impression is definitely impressive. Here are my reasons, very forgiving, large sweet spot, even a toe hit is just 5-10m right of target with a PW which has a range of 100m for me.
Long distance, my distance increased 10m for each club. High launch. Good quality material. Briefly, it was a right choice for me.
