Nike Golf’s Full 2015 Equipment Line

Published

on

Those of you making a new equipment wish list will love this: all of Nike’s 2015 products, which includes many things we expected and a few things that we didn’t expect.

Regulars in our forum knew that there were three new Nike drivers: the Vapor Flex, the Vapor Pro and the Vapor Speed, and we assumed that new fairway woods and hybrids were coming in 2015 as well. Nike also announced the release of three new Vapor irons in August. What we didn’t know, however, was that Nike would bring radical new wedge designs called “Engage” and two new lines of Method putters.

Take a look at our screen dumps of the new clubs and specs below (you can click on the images to enlarge them), or click this link to read the discussion in the forums.

    Those wedges look terrible!

    Can’t wait to see some of these in person. The vapor irons look great in person, but I haven’t seen the woods, wedges, or putters yet. NIKE has really come a long way in the last few years.

    does anyone know if the black part on the back of the clubs is just paint or an insert? The reason I ask these clubs would look a lot better after I took some paint remover to them.

    I don’t get it….if the line isn’t out yet, how the heck is Rory already playing the new Vapor driver 🙂

      The guys on tour sponsored by Nike have access to prototypes at their disposal before the public does.

    The Vapor pro irons looks great from the address position and I like the flex driver best from the address position of the drivers. So did Rory switch to everything in the Vapor line, fairways too?

    Does anyone else think it’s weird that the woods and irons are the “volt” and black colour scheme but the putters are red and black? How annoying! Why on earth would they do that!

    Best-looking Nike clubs ever.

    Putters look sexy in a futuristic way. I have gamed a Nike putter and almost bought a second. Might have to give that pro combo a try as well…

    Really not feeling the look of these. IMO the worst looking clubs out there.

    I think the Pro driver, speed fairway and hybrid will be seeing the inside of my golf bag next year.
    Love the colourway

    Is Nike’s club business robust enough to carry three separate product lines? Seems like a lot of product.

    sure glad you guys got this before they (NIKE) took it off line. thanks again

    I like my gap wedge to match my set.
    I wonder if the AW from the Pro Combo would match 4-pw Pro???

  15. Cwolf

    So excited that they are bringing back the ds wedge and having a raw finish. That is exactly what I was hoping for. The vr ds wedge is in my bag now and I love it, but the glare is awful. This new one is perfect!!!!

    The Nike Camerons look pretty good

    I like the engage wedge… That about sums it up.

    Kinda surprised by the length of the Speed iron lineup. The Coverts 2.0 were already longer than “standard” and now they increased it another 1/4″

    43.75″ 3 Wood?! Yikes.

    Nike Golf just gets better… I really like this offering. If I’m going to pick nits, I like the sole offerings but just wish their wedges were “classic.”

    • TR1PTIK

      Oct 1, 2014 at 12:46 pm

      Agreed. Although a bigger gripe on the lineup would have to be their inclusion of the Wrap 2G grip for the woods and hybrids. That grip seems to wear rather fast and is horrible for moisture control – I’m currently playing the grip on my irons and can’t wait to switch. No way would I want that grip on the fastest swinging clubs in my bag! They should have used the Tour Velvet or similar grip. Actually, they could have kept their “volt” theme going and used the Niion grips throughout the entire lineup. It would have been uglier, but at least it’s a better grip in my opinion.

        On your comment about the wedges. I do understand where you’re coming from, but I think one of the things that I’ve admired most about Nike’s recent golf offerings is the fact that they’re willing to be a little different in order to innovate. They don’t look like Vokey’s, because I think Nike doesn’t want to be associated with Vokeys, they want to be able to stand out on their own as an innovative wedge that performs. Same with the Covert Drivers and the cavity. And as an owner of a toe sweep 58*, I can attest, that they do indeed perform. But I have been waffling back and forth between going to a slightly more forgiving GI iron, and the vapor speeds have my attention. Fitted, of course, so I wouldn’t have to deal with the generous length, I’m -1/2″ from standard as it is.

    Look at that price list. They sure aren’t shy about wanting top dollar as an MSRP

  23. J

    Oct 1, 2014 at 11:53 am

    Adjustable weight in the putter grip seems like a neat idea.

  24. TR1PTIK

    Oct 1, 2014 at 11:42 am

    Surely retail prices will be lower, but I nearly crapped myself when I saw the MSRP for the Vapor Flex driver! Glad I don’t have any interest in that one, but I am interested in the Vapor Pro and would hope that retail will be closer to the $400 mark. Nice to get a look at the full lineup though, and I’m very interested in the putters and wedges as well. Great looking stuff from Nike this year!

    • MHendon

      Oct 1, 2014 at 12:18 pm

      Give it a year and get them for half price.

      • TR1PTIK

        Oct 1, 2014 at 12:37 pm

        Very true! Nike’s markdowns are often some of the biggest when new releases are just around the corner.

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best Nike driver ever

Published

on

@ukgolfclubsales

In our forums, our members have been discussing Nike drivers. WRXer ‘DixieD’ is currently building up a Nike bag and has reached out to fellow members for driver advice, and WRXers have been sharing what they feel is the best Nike driver ever made.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Ger21: “VR Pro LE? I have two I was still playing last year.”
  • mahonie: “The STR8-Fit Tour was one of the best drivers I’ve played. Still have it the garage and take it to the range occasionally…it would possibly still be in the bag if it hadn’t developed a ‘click’ in the head which I cannot fix. Long, straight(ish) and nice sound.”
  • jackr189: “The VR_S is one of the best.”
  • Finaus_Umbrella: “I played the Vapor Fly Pro, and still do on occasion for nostalgia sake. Sound and feel are great, but it demands a good strike.”
  • PowderedToastMan: “I enjoyed the SQ Tour back in the day, the one Tiger used forever. Do I miss it? Not at all, but it was a pretty good club for its time.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about driving irons for mid-handicappers

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing whether mid-handicappers can benefit from a driving iron. WRXer ‘jomatty’ says:

“I average about 230 off the tee on good drives. I can get a little more sometimes, but 230 is probably the average. I’m 42 years old and shoot in the mid to low 80’s. I do not get along with fairway woods very well, especially off the tee, and really don’t get enough extra length over my hybrid to consider using it aside from very rare situations on par 5’s (I’ve considered just going from driver to 19-degree hybrid and getting an extra wedge or something).”…

…and wants to know if he would be better served by a driving iron. Our members have been sharing their thoughts and suggestions.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • MtlJeff: “If you can shoot mid 80’s, you probably hit it well enough to hit a bunch of different clubs. Personally, I think hybrids are easier to hit….but some driving irons are quite forgiving. I use a G400 crossover that is very easy to hit and looks more iron-like. Something like that you might like. Be careful with some of them though because they aren’t always super forgiving, so you’d have to hit them first.”
  • HackerD: “G410 crossover is my version of a driving iron, feel like I hit it straighter than a hybrid. Just as easy to hit as a hybrid.”
  • hanginnwangin: “I shoot in the low 80s normally and in the 70s on my really good days. I have probably around the same or similar swing speed as you. I have been hitting my 4 iron off the tee on tight holes, and it’s been working pretty well so far. I hit it about 190-220. I have a 4 hybrid but just can’t hit it as consistently as the 4 iron, and it doesn’t even go much farther. I have a 5 wood which I only use for 220+ yard par 3s or wide-open fairways. Basically, it’s all personal preference and what you do best with. Everyone is going to be different. Try new stuff out and see what works. But if irons are the strongest part of your game (they are for me as well), I would give the 4 iron a shot. You can get a lot of roll out on the tee shots with it,”
  • Hellstrom: “Don’t laugh, but I bought a 17* hybrid with a senior flex shaft at a garage sale for $5, and I can hit it nice and easy and keep it in play without losing any distance. My driver SS is between 105 and 110 usually and swinging this thing feels like swinging a spaghetti noodle, but it works. I don’t have it in the bag all the time, but I do use it for certain courses. I take my 6 iron out and throw that in, so if I struggle with getting the ball off the tee, I just go to that.”
