Nike Wedges News, Advide and Buyers Guide
Nike, the Greek Goddess of Victory, may have not played golf but Nike Golf does know golf and knows how to win. Represented on the tour by the likes of Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, Nike Golf puts emphasis on top level performance not only on their players but also on the clubs they use. Although a relatively young company, Nike is putting their stamp on golf through aggressive marketing and by dishing out quality golf clubs.
Nike wins not by flooding the market with options and choices but by concentrating on one product and improving on it. This is true with the Nike Victory Red VR Pro Forged Wedges.
Nike Victory Red VR Pro Forged Wedges
The Nike Victory Red VR Pro Forged Wedge was researched and developed using insights and feedback from top level golfers. Designed to satisfy the golfers need for performance and ease of use, it features a Dual Sole that keeps the leading edge low, allowing for better contact under the ball even when the club is at the open position.
With high-frequency X3X grooves laser etched onto the surface of the clubface, the VR Pro has excellent traction between the clubface and the ball. Designed to increase spin and control, the X3X grooves are laser etched to make them deeper and closer together, allowing the company to put more grooves on the clubface whilst still conforming to USGA regulations. More grooves create more spin and that allows the player to make better shots from anywhere around the green.
The cross-hatch pattern between the grooves also increases friction between the clubface and the ball especially when the clubface is open. An open clubface may help the player lob the ball higher up in the air, but since the ball is running across the clubhead and along the grooves, spin is difficult to generate. This is where the cross-hatch pattern comes into play. It increases the roughness on the surface of the clubhead.
Higher spin rates are therefore achieved during the slower swings and during high lobbed shots, giving the player greater stopping power from shots made around the green. From full shots to open-faced lob shots and down to the smallest chip shot, the Victory Red VR Pro Forged Wedge performs flawlessly, thanks to the laser milled X3X grooves and cross-hatch pattern on the clubface.
For more versatility, a tour-inspired Heel Grind increases the angle at the heel, allowing the player to alter the wedges lie and still make crisp contact with the ball. Especially appreciated on uneven ground, the Heel Grind makes shot making from any angle easier.
Each Victory Red VR Pro Forged Wedge is precision crafted from S20C Forge Steel to a level that is close to the finished product, thus reducing the need for additional handwork ensuing in higher consistency in production. Available in Raw Oxide, Platinum and Satin Chrome finish, each product is fitted with Victory Red grips by Lamkin for added sensitivity and comfort.
