With 39 iron wins on the PGA Tour and having won the iron count at the Masters two years running, there is no doubt that Nike knows irons. The CCi (Composite Cavity Insert) Forged Irons are made from a soft 1025 Carbon Steel and have the attributes the accomplished player requires thin topline, minimal offset and a high level of workability.

    * Composite Cavity Insert Technology enhances forgiveness and feel.
    * Forged 1025 Carbon Steel construction.
    * Accomplished player preferred thin topline, minimal offset and high level of workability.
    * CNC milled flat faces ensure uniform ball compression for predictable distances and shot patterns.
    * Nike Tour Velvet grips by Golf Pride.

I have played titleist 704 irons for the past three years. After a round where my iron play left much to be desired I decided to go the forgiveness route. I had settled on tm r7 irons, when I saw the cci's at a great price. I really liked the look, unobtrusive offset, small head. The feel is great, anything on the face flies very well. These are great irons for the 5 to 15 handicap. I am really excited to play these irons, great forgiveness, feel and performance regardless of the lie.

I got these irons to replace my Cobra 3100 I/H irons.  These are the Nike CCI cast 4-AW set with Dynalite Gold shafts.  I have hit these a few times now and am very impressed thus far.  I was looking for a "tweener" set and these fit the bill to perfection.  Less offset and smaller blade than my Cobra's.  I think they actually look great and perform just as well.  The price can't be beat right now.  Good hits are very solid and mishits are felt but don't lack forgiveness.  I think these irons are overlooked by many because they are Nike's but if they had a different label I think they would be a huge hit.  I have read that these shafts may play soft, but I don't see that at all.  I was hitting these past my Cobra's and I'm a believer.

i think Nike have done a great job, there super forgiving (cast) and look great,
i dont think the forged set is as good, i think its plays too much like the blades therefore making it pointless.
personally i cant wait till nike bring out a better set between the blades and CCi cast, ill switch then,

Ok, so I was able to get my hands on a demo 6 iron with a graphite shaft for $15! (great way to try out a set) The one I purchased was cast, and I wanted to see how much more forgiving these guys are. I play forged pc's and I love the feel of them, just wanted to see if there was another set out there would give me a touch more forgiveness. I noticed a firmer feel on clean shots from my pcs. I would say that the wider sole gives me more confidence. It was more forgiving, but it was not as much as I had anticipated. Good club, just not worth the switch for me.

Im with you dave, ill wait till they come out with a better set that feels like the pc's with more forgiveness

the cci's have pretty good feel for cast clubs and i was attracted to game improvement clubs without the chunky heads. they are forgiving enough but a little too much offset for me and i have to say that there is nothing overly spectacular about their performance- they are very short considering the strong lofts. i'm waiting on nike to come out with clubs with similar forgiveness but less offset and hopefully forged, something in the mp 57 bracket perhaps

I love these - I was real impressed with the distance on shots off the toe (that's my typical miss) - only a few yards.  I love the look, all they way to the PW.  For some reason I don't like the look of the PW. I hit it fine - just...I don't know - It's weird to look at.  A big 5 overall for me though.

Definitely agree with you here. The thin topline is gorgeous at address and the soles are just as nice. The PW looks different, but I will get over it for sure! :rolleyes:

Hey everybody!  Been looking for some forged irons and I would really like to know how everbody feels about these.  I typically shoot somewhere in the range of low to mid 80s and occasionally in the mid 90s.  How do you think the CCI Forged would work for me.  I have a set of X-18 pro series now and I would like something forged with a thin top line. I have been looking at the Macgregor MT Pro C irons but i love the look of the CCI's.   I want something that is forgiving, has good feel, and not to pricey.  Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

I'm an 80's shooter as well and love these irons. They are fairly forgiving for the profile and feel great on center strikes. Picked up heads on eBay for 185 brand new. The satin finish is very nice as well. Defintely recommend!

I have been trying the cci forged irons. Of the muscle back/cavity backed irons, I liked these the best. The forged irons feel great,but do sting with mishits especially on the toe.  The satin finish looks very good.  The long irons were easier to hit than any other set I tried. Although these irons are slightly weaker than other sets (PW 47 degrees), I still got the same distance. I tried the new Nike Victory irons both half and full cavity and didn't like them compared to the forged cci. Great clubs.

Won 3 majors in the last 2 years: Cink (forged), Glover (forged), and Immelman (cast).  I never seriously considered Nike clubs, but I need to give them a try.  I do believe Nike will break out and dominate the market the coming decade.

I'm thinking of buying a set of these (4-AW, stiff) as I've found a local sporting goods store that has them on clearance for $299.00.  I need a spare set at my Mom's house so I don't have to travel with my AP2's and pay for all the extra oversize baggage fees and all the hassle traveling with golf clubs is.  My question is, do these clubs come in a forged version and cast version?  If so, I'm assuming the set they have for $299.00 is the cast version but how would I know?

CCi cast version has a shinny chrome finish and pretty wide sole. Forged version has tiny club face with satin finish. You won't mistake the two when you see them. If the name doesn't say forged, most likely it's cast version.

I have been using my CCi forged this season. Coming from the original Pro Combo, these clubs are even less forgiving and shaft is much stiffer than the SpeedStep. It took some getting use to, but now I love it. I am still able to get the very high ball flight as I did before without losing any distance.

What really surprised me is how tiny the sweet spot it. I mean I had a set of Ben Hogan blades before and they were easier to hit flush than these. In order to get that sweet striking sound, you really have to hit the center of the club face the size of a quarter. Having said that, I am also surprised by the forgiveness. some shots that were off center and sounded like absolute crap, still flew high and straight and got to roughly where I was aiming. The sound of a perfect strike is so sweet that it really makes you want to hit it pure every time.

I had compared these with AP1 and Burner TP. The face on CCi is so much thinner, especially the top line, than both of them, it really makes you feel like you are hitting with true blades.

I am a 6 handicap btw.

a very good iron.  Had them in the bag all summer.  Feel is good, forgiveness is decent.  I find that is not as long as other irons I have hit, about one club shorter than most other irons I have owned.

Been using these for a couple years.  They worked great for rebuilding my swing and gaining back some confidence.  They are about to leave my bag, but its only because I found some old Pro Combos that are going into the bag for a while.

Have the forged version shafted with x100's and they are extremely accurate. As many have said, you know when you hit a bad shot with these, but they are also quite forgiving. I am a natural sweeper and these have worked wonders for my game.
