The Nike VR_S irons uses the PowerBow features from the previous generation of 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 which may put some purists off. However the oversized heads were very easy to get up and away on a mid to high ball flight and we felt the forgiveness was excellent. 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 improver's.

I got my clubs custom made with longer shaft and extra stuff I love these clubs.

Bought a second hand set and am thoroughly enjoying them. Still however adjusting to the stronger lofts and the gap they have caused between PW and my LW.

I have been searching for a well balanced, straight hitting high launch iron set. I got these VRS irons this summer and I love them. Very satisfied.

I got these clubs 2 weeks ago and have been very impressed. After hitting the range & then 2 par 3 rounds with these VR_S irons my ball striking has become much better allowing me to swing harder which equals more distance. I'm itching at work right now to go play another round!

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.
