Nike Golf Introduces The VR Pro Cavity Irons For Predictable Distance

BEAVERTON, Ore. (January 25, 2011) Expanding on the success of the VR franchise, Nike Golf has developed a set of irons that meets the eye of a Tour level athlete while meeting the performance expectations of an aspiring golfer. Nike’s new VR Pro Cavity irons offer more forgiveness, distance, and better ball flight than Tour-level forged irons.

The ball flight off the VR Pro Cavity irons is improved due to the Opti-Mass Weighting system. This system is used to get the weight lower, deeper and more centralized, guaranteeing that the center of gravity is in an ideal position for trajectory and distance. The Opti-Mass is an injection-molded blend of polymer and high-density tungsten to create precise weight distribution, while also serving as a dampening tool. The face technology of the VR Pro Cavity irons produce powerful distance while the Opti-Mass weighting system creates predictable distance.

Developed by Nike Golf engineers at Nike’s Research and Development (R&D) facility, The Oven, the Nike VR Pro Cavity irons utilize new Linear Center of Gravity (CG) Mapping, which provides maximum power and predictable distance. The CG moves gradually throughout each club in the set for optimal launch and consistent distance control. The Nike VR Pro Cavity irons also have a lower and deeper CG than its predecessor, the VR Full Cavity irons.

The VR Pro Cavity irons maintain the traditional look of the Tour-level VR Pro Blades and VR Pro Combo irons with added forgiveness. The Pro Combo-inspired progression provides the right club for the right shot with the ideal blend of forgiveness, control and feel.
