In our 2012 Sneak Peak Equipment post we posted catalog pics of the new Vr-S Forged irons (special thanks to GolfWRX.com). At this week’s McGladrey Classic, Nike Golf Athlete Stewart Cink has brought a couple of the irons to test out in his bag. There’s been a lot of chatter on Internet about these irons because many enthusiasts in the U.S. were hoping Nike would bring its SQ Machspeed Forged iron (photos courtesy of TourSpecGolf.com) from Japan over stateside, but the move was never made.
Fortunately, the new Vr-S Forged irons bare a very similar resemblance to the SQ Machspeed Forged with some minor tweeks. Obviously there’s no SQ badge, and some of the sleek lines in the Machspeeds have been replaced by more intricate etching. The Vr-S has also brought back the same horizontal lines in the cavity that the original pro combo 3 and 4-irons had.
Have a look for yourself below, which one would you game?
