Free Tip Friday: The Vapor Iron Family

Modern Muscle Technology is Here! This week, the Discount Golf World Pro examines the Nike Vapor Irons to highlight some of their key features. the Nike Vapor Pro Irons are positioned as the replacement for the traditional blade. These irons produce approximately 1.7 yards more distance and feature an MOI that is ten percent higher than the VR Pro Blades they replace. The main technological advantage provided by the Vapor Pro design is what Nike calls a “modern muscle.” This design incorporates tungsten plugs that significantly improve the CG location of the club by moving it closer to the center of the clubface. Unlike traditional blade designs, which feature a CG that’s closer to the hosel, the Vapor Pro and its modern muscle design provide the best results when the ball is struck in the middle of the clubface and produces improved results on shots struck off-center. The Nike Vapor Pro Combo Irons, which fit nicely between the Pro and the Speed, also utilize the modern muscle design to provide a combination of precision and ball speed. Like the Vapor Pro, the Pro Combo irons feature a CG closer to the center of the face, making them both more precise and more forgiving than past Pro Combo models. The Nike Vapor Speed Irons are aimed at players who want maximum distance and forgiveness, simply. Nike’s modern muscle design moves the CG closer to the center of the clubface and lower and deeper in the clubhead to provide a combination of this new CG location with very thin clubfaces and lighter, longer shafts. The result, high launching shots with maximum carry distance. Shop for the Nike Vapor Irons at Discount Golf World.

Introducing the Vapor Iron Family

Powered by Modern Muscle Technology Building a better iron starts with listening to the voice of the athlete. At The Oven, Nike’s meticulous process of collecting insights and implementing feedback from the world’s best athletes has been the driving force behind the development of the Vapor Iron family and Modern Muscle. “We had this idea, if we moved the CG towards the center of the face that it would have more impact and more mass right behind the golf ball. And it worked. I was able to hit that ball a little bit further, it came off more solid, and the amazing thing is the ball flew better.” - Tiger Woods Modern Muscle technology is available in all three members of the Nike Vapor Iron Family – the Vapor Pro, Vapor Pro Combo and Vapor Speed. Because no matter what conventional wisdom might say, there’s always better. Tiger’s future irons, the Nike Vapor Pro Irons are positioned as the replacement for the traditional blade.

Adjustability Made Easy: The New TaylorMade SLDR Driver

The adjustable driver has been around for awhile, and every major manufacturer has embraced the technology, at least to some degree. TaylorMade has been committed to adjustable drivers and moveable weight technology since 2004, but the benefit of adjustability has been lost to a vast number of golfers who have no desire to delve into the complexities of tinkering with loft, lie, face angle and weighting. Taken to its extreme, adjustability for the average golfer may seem just a bit gimmicky. For those who haven’t embraced the adjustability craze, and just as importantly, for those who have, the new TaylorMade SLDR (“Slider”) Driver offers quick and easy adjustability that just about anyone can understand—and from which everyone can benefit.

Win Your Major with the TaylorMade Spider Blade Putter

In the end, the recently concluded US Open staged at Merion Golf Club resembled the Opens of yesteryear during which brutal rough and nasty greens eliminated pretenders first, then contenders, until there was just one guy left. What’s remarkable is that the “one guy” who conquered the treacherous Merion greens and the USGA’s diabolical hole placements was Justin Rose, a guy who just weeks ago ranked 158th in putting on the PGA Tour. What changed? Well, Justin Rose switched to a 34” TaylorMade Spider Blade Putter at the Player’s Championship in May, and then switched again at the Memorial, opting for a 37” version of the same model. The results were that he ranked 13th in putting at the US Open. That huge leap in the putting stats, arguably, made the difference between winning a Major title and, well, not winning one.   The TaylorMade Spider Blade is the highest MOI blade putter ever produced by TaylorMade, delivering twist-resistance comparable to high-MOI mallet putters. TaylorMade also incorporated “counterbalancing” properties first introduced with their Daddy Long Legs mallet putter. The idea behind counterbalancing is to offer increased stability through additional weight in the shaft and butt end of the putter. You’re going to see a lot of counterbalancing in putter design in the near future because it is said to offer stability similar to an “anchored” putting stroke, which the USGA has banned effective 2016. Consequently, those who struggle a bit on the greens are looking for a new method, and the major club manufacturers will most assuredly accommodate through innovation. Even if you don’t struggle, you can always improve on the greens.   So, if you are looking for a way to make more putts, take a page from the playbook of Justin Rose, the number 3 player in the world and newly-minted Major Champion, and give the TaylorMade Spider Blade a try.  You may just win your own version of the US Open.

It’s Here: TaylorMade R1 Black Driver

Black is the new black! TaylorMade launched the new R1 Black Driver today and it is, well, unbelievably cool. The R1, released earlier in 2013, introduced us to the concept of an adjustable driver that can be fine tuned to fit anyone’s game. From Tour pro to beginner, the R1 offered one club head that could be adjusted to everyone’s swing. The R1 instantly became the number one driver on the PGA Tour and found its way to millions of amateur’s bags, as well. So what’s new with the R1 Black Driver, you ask? Technically speaking, nothing at all… except the finish–it’s black. And contrary to what you might think, that is a very big deal.   There are countless golfers around the world who feel a driver ought to be black, not white. There is genuine science behind the white phenomenon; that being the optical illusion created by the contrast between white crown and black face that makes the club head appear huge, inspiring confidence. Fair enough, but for those among us who want the aggressive look of all black, then who cares what the science says. Black is back—and it has some upgrades with this new R1 Driver. The glossy finish is truly beautiful and TM incorporated the R1 alignment graphics on the crown, but with a significant difference. Whereas the “face paint” graphics are almost overwhelming on the original R1’s white matte finish, they are subtlety done on the R1 Black, offering a distinctive look that adds to the uniqueness of the club. The graphics are, in a word, cool. And so is this driver. You can pre-order the TaylorMade R1 Black Driver at DGW today.
