This thread will be for them to offer their long term thoughts as they use the irons and offer feedback as to how they work for them.

Lets keep this thread clear until the guys start getting their Nike irons in and posting initial thoughts. Thanks.

Package delivered about an hour ago from FedEx!!! :clapp:

I can't say enough how excited and honored I am to have been selected for this. GIGANTIC THANK YOU to :thp: and :nike: Golf!

My specs: 3-PW w/ Project X 5.0 steel shaft, standard loft, standard lie

Unboxing video:


These irons are just ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS - no denying that.

The biggest change for me is the top lines - they make the clubs look so much smaller in comparison to my previous irons (Cobra S9's).

Heading to range in a few hours and will have first impression from hitting them after that.

Onto the pics:

Project X 5.0 shafts




4 iron (Pocket Cavity), 7 iron (Split Cavity, and PW (blade)

For anyone that has not already figured it out.

P = pocket
S = split
B = blade

These are such a great looking set of irons. I can't wait to see how the testers like the irons, especially the higher cappers that are testing these.

What is the difference between the Pocket cavity and the Split cavity?

And those are gorgeous! That 4I comparison is scary looking to me.

The pocket cavity has an actual cutout on the back of the club and the split does not. The split is like a hybrid of a pocket cavity and a blade.

Per Nike Golf:

Pocket cavity: More forgiveness on longer shots

Split cavity: Enhances pin-seeking control and workability

Blade: Delivers unsurpassed short-game feel

Beautiful pics Mc, I know you are so antsy wanting to get to the range this afternoon. I know your write up will be very honest and I am so looking forward to reading it. Looking forward to the unboxing video and range videos too.

mcook, awesome pics, and thanks for the comparison to your old irons, it's always nice to see how something new compares to the old. As a side note the cavity changes are so minimal I'm curious how much the performance difference is between the pocket and split.

I love the transition from Pocket to split cavity, the look of the back is almost the same

Those have to be the best looking irons of 2011. I have never been a fan of Nike products, but these I would love to try out. Have fun testing!

Those look really nice. Really curious to hear your thoughts on them, especially coming from what you were hitting.
