Nike Vapor Pro Irons Review
Consisting of three models – Vapor Pro, Vapor Pro Combo, and Vapor Speed, the The Vapor Line provides the best combination of forgiveness, precision and distance. The new Vapor Pro’s design and technological advantage called “modern muscle”, incorporates tungsten plugs improving the CG location of the club by moving it closer to the center of the clubface. “The modern muscle” gives the best result when the ball is hit in the middle of the clubface.
Tiger Woods describes the new irons as “heavier hit” on the ball and the shot is more precise, especially in the wind. Also, he describes them as being more solid, more balanced and more consistent than the traditional blades.Modern Muscle provides power and precision.
Furthermore, Vapor Pro Irons present a carbon steel forged construction, slightly longer blade length in the long irons, more bounce that adds forgiveness through the ground, thin top lines and minimal offset. The classic look with a low-glare satin chrome finish is highly appreciated. The longer blade and one degree of added bounce gives more forgiveness through the turf. The high precision and third generation X3X grooves on a forged 1025 carbon steel chassis give more control of the spin and steadiness to the shots. The thin top lines and straight leading edges with minimal offset gives the best workability and orientation. The satin chrome finish is mostly preferred because of the glare reduction.

The sound produced by strikes off center is unique. Instead of a high pithed click, a lower tone is produced instead, offering an audible difference between a great strike and mediocre contact.
Cons to Nike Vapor Pro
A deficit in forgiveness seems to be inside center moving towards the heel of the face that leads to distance loss and directional variance. Modern muscle technology offers solid feedback on shots, more on the two sides of center. Because of its design and a lack of mass behind the heel side, it has a weaker contact feeling wich leads to reduced ball speed.
