The Nike Victory Red Forged Split Cavity irons are the hybrid version of the Forged TW blades and they offer everything you would expect from a better players iron.

As they are forged irons the feel was excellent and the clean lines of the clubhead gave you a classy look and feel.

The forgiveness of the Split Cavity irons was much better than the blades, as you would expect, but the trajectory was very good and it was easy to shape shots as required.

Nike have really stepped up to the plate with the Nike Victory Red Forged Split Cavity irons and provided better players with real alternative to the ranges from the classic forged manufacturers. A must try.

Playing about 5 years now and always have used a cavity back iron as they give you a lot of forgiveness. My game improved so I promised I'd get myself a new set of irons as I was using a set of Dunlop, my mate was selling the Nike's, 3I-PW i like the loo of them in the photo so I bought them, it wasn't until he delivered them I noticed there was no cavity at the back. Oh no what have I done I can't hit with blades I thought to myself, so I went for a round of golf didn't bother with the range, it was the worst round i've ever played. 10 bogies 4 pars and 2 pick ups and only the 2 birdies, worst round of my life. I was thinking about selling the Nike's on and using the Dunlop's again. But I didn't, I brought them home, cleaned them and went out again the following week, 1st hole 370yd par 4 3i off the tee smashed it 250yds left me 120yd, a wee half swing 9i 0.5 foot from the hole and I've never looked back. Best hitting club I've ever played with, and when you connect with the ball correctly you hear or feel a thing the ball flight is amazing, I can move it right to left, left to right or right down the middle.

These are great looking irons from Nike and have all the looks of a better players irons whilst scoring very highly for forgiveness. They sit beautifully behind the ball with a pleasing topline (especially good on short shots around the green) and both the feel and sound from the club face are great and what you would expect from a forged iron. Playable enough to easily work the ball both ways whilst mishits are not overly punished in terms of a loss of distance. The VR split cavitys are a serious rival in the market for better players looking for a bit of playability.

The Nike Victory Red Split Cavity Irons were a joy to hit throughout the bag. Recently I've become used to hitting irons which are a lot bigger and clunkier at address than these elegant looking clubs but after just a few strikes with the 4 iron any lingering loss of confidence at losing my "stabilisers" had vanished. They offered consistency throughout the bag and are forgiving enough to install the confidence to "go" for every shot. The feel was excellent and I could really see myself playing with them a lot. Certainly a favourite for me - and I did find myself thinking that with the Split Cavity version as easy to hit as these the Full Cavity set must practically hit the ball for you!
