Nike Golf has taken full advantage of technology in the premium driver category. The VR Pro driver has a pear shaped Tour-driven head designed with direct input from Nike athletes. The pear shape allows for more weight at the optimal centre of gravity locations and delivers a hotter launch with optimal spin. The VR Pro driver features a new Variable Compression Channel, which increases speed at impact in more spots on the clubface. This Compression Channel extends the entire length of the face and delivers greater distance. With the extended length of the Compression Channel and with the variation in the thickness in specific locations, it allows players to garner more ball speed which translates to greater distance. The Nike VR Pro driver provides golfers all the benefits, adjustability, looks and performance that the Nike athletes receive week in and week out on Tour. The VR Pro driver expands upon Nike’s award-winning STR8-FIT Face Angle Technology, giving players both the ability to select their shot shape as well as the flexibility to dial in the look of their driver like never before. The VR Pro offers multiple face angle positions for the ultimate in workability and confidence at address. The Nike VR Pro drivers are designed for golfers who are refining and optimising distance in their game, desire a more traditional pear-shape look and demand tailored performance with pin point accuracy. The Nike VR Pro driver is sold with the Project X shaft, that utilizes zoned optimisation for three unique technologies in one tour-ready shaft.

The Nike VR Pro Driver is the Nike's is a significant improvement on the previous Victory Red Driver and is a more Tour-level design than the SQ Machspeed Black Series. The look and shape of the head are more classic pear-shaped than Nike's previous drivers and the club seems to sit slightly open at address. In our tests, the Nike VR Pro felt and sound so much better than the previous version and a worthy challenger to the other mainstream drivers in the market. The Compression Channel technology appears to be working well, adding additional 'pop' at impact, and the penetrating, mid to high ball flight was equally impressive.
The STR8-FIT adjustability was a little fiddly to operate, and the look of the hosel at address is not ideal, but the difference the adjustment technology is noticeable with big dispersions left and right at the widest settings, although more subtle changes are possible. The Nike VR Pro is aided by the Project X shaft, which felt light, yet powerful through contact. Overall we were very impressed by the VR Pro Driver and would recommend it to any low-to-mid handicappers in the market for a new driver.
