Tony Finau’s old Nike driving iron sells for ABSURD money on eBay

Published

on

While on-site at the 2022 Travelers Championship, I took photos of Tony Finau’s full WITB setup. My biggest takeaway was that he plays ridiculously large grips (Lamkin mid-size, with loads of wraps underneath; check them out here).

I also noticed he had two different putters in the bag; both are PLD Anser 2D models. According to Ping putter rep Dylan Goodwin, one of the models has about 5 grams of lead tape on the sole to help Finau with face awareness, and the other is his gamer, which features sharpie lines on the hosel section to help him with alignment and setup.

But those weren’t the most interesting points of note in Finau’s bag, or the reason I’m writing this story.

While going through Finau’s clubs, I noticed he’s still using an old Nike Vapor Fly Pro 3-iron, equipped with a Graphite Design Tour AD-DI 105x Hybrid shaft and loads of lead tape on the back cavity.

The Vapor Fly Pro irons first hit the market in 2016, but PGA Tour players such as Finau and Brooks Koepka continue to use the long irons as a driving iron years later.

Speaking to Finau on Tuesday at the 2022 Travelers Championship, he said that he got 6 years of use out of the original head he put in the bag in 2016 before it finally caved. The driving iron he has in the bag now is a replacement, and he says he has only one backup now.

“I got about 6 years of use out of the first one, and I’m hoping to get about 6-7 years out of this one,” Finau told GolfWRX at the Travelers. “I only have one backup, but I’m hoping I’ll get 6-7 years out of that one, too.”

Obviously, Finau has no plans of using a driving iron that’s not a Nike Vapor Fly Pro anytime in the near future. And if he acquires another backup, he’ll probably be able to play one until he’s 50 years old.

While discussing the old Nike driving iron on our latest Two Guys Talking Golf podcast episode, my co-host Brian Knudson was curious about how much they’re selling for on eBay.

That’s when we realized how ridiculously expensive (and sneaky hard to find) the Nike Vapor Fly Pro long irons are.

Check out how much they’re currently listed for on eBay!

OK, so those are listed prices, but what are they actually selling for? Here’s a look at a few recently sold versions:

Those are new driver type prices! Wow.

I guess when you consider that the iron is still being played on Tour six years after they released, and given the fact that Nike doesn’t make golf clubs anymore, and there’s a limited supply, it does make sense. Still, though, $400+ for a driving iron is a tough pill to swallow.

That being said, I absolutely need to get my hands on one to test and see what the hype is all about. Maybe I’ll start a GoFundMe page so I have some extra cash to make a competitive eBay bid.
