Nike has announced the release of their new VR (Victory Red) series of irons, which are supposed to be debuted on Oct.15th, 2008. From the limited information I could dig up, it appears that they will have 3 trim levels for the VR irons. As you can see below, the blades will feature the TW logo, except for tour players who will have their own monogram on their sets.
At first look, I’d have to say that the blades and cavity back irons are merely just a “face lift” model. The blades are strikingly similar to the current shape and design that Tiger is currently using, and the cavity back’s look very much like the Pro Combo Tour cavity back design, from a few years ago. The game improvement iron is obviously just a more forgiving version of the middle design, catering to the higher handicap players. This lineup is very similar to Titleists 3 model “Z” series which came out earlier this year. As for Pricing??? Who knows at this point. The blades are sure to go for the $999.00 number that they usually sell at. And the other two models will more than likely be in the $700-$800 range. I’m sure that there will be accurate pricing and availability mid October. This is all I’ve got for now.
