    Major debate back & forth over at a golf forum I frequent (I know, what a faggot) and a lot of the old guard hate the look of the new irons that Nike just released, mainly due to the coloring scheme. I guess they're trying to go for a younger demographic. However, at the same time, Nike has always been viewed as a step behind in the golf club manufacturing world.

    I need some fresh takes on non-golfers of whether you like these or not for my own internal quandary. TIA.:gayhand:

    They supposedly moved the sweet spot more towards the center (the general rule is it's more towards the heel) -so yes, contact should be slightly better.

    X-stiff.

    It sounds good on paper. I'm curious to see the texture. It's no easy to overcook tuna.

    No doubt their woods are great, but morally I can't purchase their products. Too many frequent cycles with each one giving you "10+ yards"
