Published

on

Nike’s MM Proto Irons, which have had blade-lovers drooling since being spotted at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational this week, will be released to the public on August 4th as part of a limited run, Nike Golf announced on Wednesday through Twitter. Only 40 sets, at $1,500 each, will be available.

Nike’s MM Proto forged blade irons have been tested by Seung Yul Noh and Russell Henley, and according to an Instagram post from Thorbjorn Oleson, he put them straight in the bag for the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, along with engineers at The Oven and Nike’s R&D team collaborated over the past few years to develop these prototypes, according to the company. Although they were designed specifically for tour use, Nike is allowing 40 golfers to put them in their bag.

Orders for a set (3-PW), which are available in right-handed only, can be placed on Nike.com starting on August 4th (10 a.m. EDT/7 a.m. PST) and the offer will end on August 6th at 4 p.m. (PST). Each of the sets will be laser-engraved with individual numbering and The Oven logo on the hosel.

To make each set even more unique, a plethora of custom options, including personalized stampings, will be offered. By placing an order, the reservation also includes a one-on-one concierge service with a Nike club expert to ensure the club is made to the buyers’ preferences. Pictured below is the spec sheet of options.

    They do this for money. It’s nike. They’re probably going g to do it for rory mcilroy putter the method 003. The putter doesn’t sell they may run it at 500 and say there’s limited amounts and really there’s a lot of them. But it while you can.

    Normally speaking, I’d be here to tell you how much Nike sucks. I have to admit, these are good looking irons. It also speaks volumes for technology, because they look pretty forgiving for blades, while the sole grind looks to allow for closed and open faces allowing for shotmaking. Would I spend $1,500 for clubs that will probably be available for 600 less in the spring, I don’t know.

    Looks like somebody slept in this morning…they’re late opening up the ordering.

    Honestly if you get the custom options, you really are only paying a $200 premium which in my opinion is worth it, because since they are being made at The Oven you are sure to get the exact specs you wanted.

      If you’re going to make these kind of comments, please do so with an appropriate grammatical approach to the English language so that the engineers at The Oven can make sense of it all….

      I’m guessing you don’t have it to spend anyway, just a guess.

    Are you kidding, 40 sets!!
    How many of those are going to make it to australia??
    Good on ya NIKE. Try 40,000 sets.
    Disappointing . Everything else you make will be second rate compared to these irons, and that is definately not for me!!!!!!!!!!!
    Now time to look elsewhere

      These are made at the oven, Probably less than 20 people make clubs there.

      Stop crying, Australia guy. These will come out in the Fall. Probably get to Australia sometime in 2017.

    1500 is a steal assuming I could sell them to some rich hack for double that on BST. These are too special to put into play.

      I don’t understand, what is so special about them?

        Its all about the process.
        These are made in the tour department(oven) as well as having tour shafts with tour specs…
        The tolerances on anything that is actual tour equipment are exacting.
        And the build quality is exceptional.

    Something tells me that more than 90% of the people who buy these clubs probably aren’t good enough to use them.

      That could be said about a lot of clubs…

    That really sucks. I have $1,500 ready to drop on these bad boys if they offered a lefty set.

    These will definitely be the next blade like release from Nike. Their current VR pro blades are now only $599 on Nike.com for 3-PW. This is just a chance to get a limited edition run of clubs actually made and designed in The Oven. They will release the exact same clubs or with minor graphics changes this fall or early winter. The only think I am interested in is seeing if Rory switches to whole set, AND IF Tiger will switch. I have a hard time thinking tiger uses anything different from his current style iron for the rest of his career, but you never know.

    • Chaff

      Aug 3, 2014 at 1:18 pm

      Yeah but it would be really cool to have a hand made set from the same guys who craft Tiger’s and Rory’s clubs.

    Not a fan of the design. Think they are kind of ugly.

    Everybody’s learning from the Japanese market, how it always only has a couple thousand units of the specials and thus the high price. Not bad for $1500 for a limited run. And only 40 of them! Great idea, Nike. I commend you on it.

    • bradford

      This is just vintage Nike “Limited Edition” frenzy marketing. These exact clubs will be on sale to the public later this year for $999, just without the unique ID numbering. I don’t have a problem with it…people collect stuff–good for them. I’ll wait and try them out a few times and buy them at retail.

    Guess it’s time for me to get on the class fields and get selling!

    No thanks nike. We want the putter, not some irons you’ll release in 2 months anyways

  19. steve

    Jul 31, 2014 at 10:02 am

    I bet this makes their retail lineup, just a way to make some hype and bring the price up

    Jul 31, 2014 at 10:02 am

    Pretty cool looking clubs. $1500 for something that hangs on a wall is a bit much…

    • steve

      Jul 31, 2014 at 10:04 am

      If you get them for $1500 they go in ebay for $3000 right away.

      • brian

        Jul 31, 2014 at 11:27 am

        This may fetch $4k by the end of the auction. $500 per club is INSANE, but someone will pay it.

      • MHendon

        Jul 31, 2014 at 5:24 pm

        Yeah wish I had about 6 grand to blow, I’d buy four sets and make a killing on ebay.

    Dangerous game you’re playing here Nike…a limited run of beautiful irons. Look so nice that it may be tough to game them!! Sorry if I missed it, but any word on price?

Member CC_Stryder – Toulon Rochester

Looking for a putter that gets its names from a city in New York state with a flow neck? Well…the name might not be exactly what you are looking for, but if a flow neck is what you are after, then look no further.

Member StillCantPutt – PXG BlackJack Putter

The newest putter from PXG at less than new price. Don’t let the seller’s name discourage you either, this thing should help you sink more putts.
