Nike Golf speculation and rumor

GolfWRX members are known for keeping up on the latest equipment releases, discussing the whispers they’ve heard in equipment circles, and voicing their opinions on what they would like to see released next.

In this thread, WRX members put Nike Golf into the rumor mill and predict what’s next. It’s always interesting to read these threads and then see what actually comes out at retail.

One of my personal favorite parts of the GolfWRX forums is getting introduced to awesome equipment I’ve never seen before, and this Onoff Kuro Forged iron is nothing short of beautiful.

See more in-hand photos of the Onoff Kuro irons in the forum thread.

    I know Miura is known for their beautiful precision irons and after looking at that hybrid from the address position I think maybe they should just stick with irons.

Super hot driving irons – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been talking about hot driving irons. WRXer ‘Russian7’ is on the hunt for a driving iron offering maximum ball speed and distance with no spin, and our members have been sharing their picks in our forum.

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.

  • bcflyguy1: “From word of mouth anecdotes to testing done by other forums, think P790 UDI is as likely as anything to give you what you’re after.”
  • jblough99: “If you don’t mind em with a little junk in the trunk, look at the G425 crossover. Everything I’ve read/seen claims very forgiving and goes forever. No first-hand experience, though.”
  • Luxor54: “The exotics Ti-utility is probably up there.”
  • norsebynorsewest: “Seconded on the PXG 0311X. I play a one iron, and the thing is a utility rocket. It honestly feels like it should be illegal.”

Best Ping irons from the last 5 years – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Ping irons. WRXer ‘LowAndLeft32’ wants to hear what our members believe are the best additions from the brand over the past five years, with the i210 irons proving a popular choice.

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.

  • PEI_Golfer: “Hard pressed to beat the i210s.”
  • realmfg: “Blueprints.”
  • eric61: “Love the i210s — they’re easily the answer here, in my opinion. I really liked the i59s, too, but not as much as the i210s, and I think their price point maybe has meant a lot of people didn’t even end up trying them. G-series irons are fine too. If you’re in that segment of the market, the last few years it’s been the latest G irons vs the latest Hot Metals for the top of the pecking order, in my opinion.”
  • Cwhite912: “Easy, I210, Blueprint, iBlade.”

Easiest launching fairway woods – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing easy to launch fairway woods. WRXer ‘Pete52’ hits his woods too low, and our members have been sharing their best picks to solve his problem in our forum.

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.

  • JKJKJK: “I had the easiest time to elevate from the deck with G425 Max 3Wood/5Wood with Motore F3 shaft. Flies really high and easy to hit.”
  • DoughBack18: “Sim2 Ti. Has a lot of weight on the sole, and you can really launch it high. I’ve always had a slightly lower trajectory, got this in a 5 wood, and it’s worked really nicely filling the gap I had at the top end of my bag.”
  • Valtiel: “Any of the modern Pings are a good litmus test for elevation. If you can’t get those off the ground then you know the problem ain’t the club.”
