This is my first WITB posting,  so I’m crossing my fingers this comes out correctly.  Previously gamed Nike Victory Red & VR II Pro Blades respectively for nearly 3 years prior to sustaining a right elbow injury early last year.  Thinking I needed more user friendly clubs, I decided to have a mid-summer’s flirtation with TM RBZ and Burner 2.0.  They were decent clubs (especially the Burner 2.0 TP woods), but ultimately we couldn’t make it work, so I broke off the affair, reconciled with Nike shortly after Christmas and decided upon the VR-S for my gamers and (a slightly) mixed Nike SQ set as my reserves in 2013.  Although some may say we’re still in the honeymoon phase, all indicators to this point have convinced me that I’ve made the right decision….  

Here’s my set-up for the VR-S:

1.    Driver:  Nike VR-S  8.5*, Tour AD G60 series shaft (Stiff) cut to 45”

2.    3 Wood: Nike VR-S  15*, Stock Fubuki shaft (Stiff)

3.    2 Hybrid: Nike VR-S  18*, Stock Fubuki shaft (Stiff)

4.    Irons:  Nike VR-S (Cast)  4 – PW, AW, & SW, Stock  True Temper Dynalite 90g (Stiff)

5.    Lob Wedge:  Nike Victory Red  58*

6.    Putter:  Nike Method Core Drone

7.    Ball of choice:  Nike One Vapor Series (One Vapor, Vapor Speed, Vapor Black)

Personal Assessment:  Short game/Recovery around the greens definite strength of my game (hence the 4 wedges) with putting a strong 2nd.  Better than average iron play w/ accurate but somewhat average distance driver.  (However in the dead of winter, I’m seeing increased distances w/ the VR-S driver)

The Backups:

1.    Driver:  Nike MachSpeed Black Round  9.5*, Project X  5.5 cut to 45”

2.    3 Wood:  Nike SQ Dymo  15*, Stock shaft

3.    2 Hybrid:  Nike MachSpeed  18*, Stock shaft

4.    Irons:  Nike MachSpeed X  4 – PW, AW, SW, Stock

5.    Lob Wedge:  Nike Victory Red  58*

6.    Putter:  Nike Method Core Drone

*Note: I have the Nike VR II Pro 58* wedge on hand if I decide to sign up for the GC Amateur  tour this year—not likely, but several of my friends are trying to convince me to do so.

Is your real name Phil Knight?  I have never played any Nike club but I must say both rigs look tight!  Why don't you send me the set that you aren't gaming at the moment & I will give the Nike's their day in court!

Thanks I appreciate it. I wish my name was Phil Knight in that if it was, I'd already be gaming the new Covert line of clubs!   As I have very little else to do but golf since I retired, both sets will see plenty of course time, but if one of them starts complaining, I'll send them your way....LOL

Thanks a lot.   I really believe the VRS line is one of the best kept secrets of last year.  I can't wait until the spring to see how they perform in more optimal weather conditions.

LOL....Like I said in the post, I was playing (forged) VR II Pro blades before my injury.  The headcovers are a holdover from those days.

They're only used for travelling, or for when I'm displaying them in the mancave.  No one has time to pull iron covers off during actual play.  I'd have to change my name to Ben Crane or something.....

First off I want to say "Thank You!" for your service to our country and keeping my family safe.  Secondly, very nice set up.  I just bought a new 56* Nike DS sand wedge.  I have just been chipping around the house so far because of the weather but I really like it.  I am starting to really like what Nike is doing with their clubs.

You're so welcome.  It was a demanding lifestyle with too many of our Brothers and Sisters paying the ultimate sacrifice, but rest assured although very few of us seek it, when our fellow Citizens show their appreciation, it really does make a difference.

Getting back to golf, I have a feeling you're going to enjoy your new sand wedge.

In these cases, we'll let the iron covers pass.  I must say, for iron covers, they are pretty cool.  <<< Oxymoron
