Nike Golf Introduces the VR Pro Limited Edition Forged Driver Utilizing Nike’s New NexCOR Technology with Traditional Flare

-The 430cc pear-shaped driver is already in the bag of PGA Tour Nike Golf Athletes Paul Casey and Anthony Kim-

BEAVERTON, Ore. (September 14, 2011) – From the concept to the course, the new VR Pro Limited Edition Forged driver was made with and for the sports’ very best. Utilizing unique player insights and demanding standards has helped produce a club that delivers Tour-level distance with maximum workability and performance. The Nike VR Pro Limited Edition Forged driver is the latest addition to the premium VR franchise.

Already in the bag of Nike Golf athletes Paul Casey and Anthony Kim, the Nike VR Pro Limited Edition Forged driver will be available at retail on November 1, 2011. The Tour-driven pear shaped head design is 430cc and made of a forged construction that addresses the tour athlete’s need for great feel, ultimate control and maximum workability.

A leader in introducing ground-breaking golf products through the power of advanced innovation, Nike Golf has taken full advantage in the premium driver category. The Nike VR Pro Limited Edition Forged driver utilizes a new Nike innovation, NexCOR face technology. NexCOR face technology maximizes distance for the widest range of players through a new speed-expanding multi face thickness design. The NexCOR infinity design creates a bridge for an ultra-thin, ultra-hot face and unmatched ball speed.

The sole of the Nike VR Pro Limited Edition Forged driver features Nike’s recognizable variable Compression Channel technology. The Compression Channel extends the entire length of the sole and helps to increase speed at impact at more spots on the club face, delivering greater distance on all the go-to shots that athletes use to work the ball. The full-length Compression Channel combined with the variation in the thickness in specific locations, allows the consumer to generate more ball speed which translates to greater distance.

Built through a true four-piece forging process, the face, crown, sole and hosel are combined to maximize the NexCOR face and center of gravity location for optimal distance and control. The New MRC Diamana ‘Ahina shaft incorporates Mitsubishi Rayon’s signature Multi-Dimensional Interlay technology (MDI) to deliver a stiffer mid and tip section than its predecessor.

The Nike VR Pro Limited Edition driver was designed for golfers who prefer a more traditional 430cc pear-shape head, and who demand Tour-level performance.

    Love it! One of my favorite drivers was the VR Str8Fit Tour ….there’s something about the <460cc head that suits my eye and this is no different…..price tag is a little on the high side though

  2. 9-Iron Man says:

    A good looking club that for sure, but definitely not for me.

  3. Yoccos says:

    That driver looks gorgeous! Curious about the shaft offering as well and seeing how it performs.

  4. Spaceman_Spiff says:

    SLICK! Really love the look of this… price point is a tad high but makes sense. Would love to hit this bad boy though for sure!

  5. Super Tuna says:

    Oh Nike you have nailed it with this one. Standard hosel, forged face and sub 460cc = awesome sauce. I will be all over this one.

  6. Michael Cook says:

    Love the classic pear shape head and simplicity at address. Nike did a good job by the sounds of it with this one.

  7. One-T says:

    love how it comes with a Diamana

  8. d_in_la says:

    Wow, that’s a beauty! Nothing I’ll ever hit though.

  9. SW says:

    Very nice, like the simple crown design.

  10. couldbeu says:

    Great looking driver… and for me the Nike gear performs well. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to hit this club!

  11. Dr. Teeth says:

    This is a beautiful driver, almost looks to have a Dark Satin Grey color to it. I think it looks gorgeous!

  12. Freddie kong says:

    I am a big fan of the smaller headed drivers. Will be looking for the release of this bad boy!

  13. Thechosen1 says:

    430cc is an interesting choice. Thanks for the heads up!

  14. dubbledxu says:

    Great looking club, hope the shaft is the real deal. Looking forward to a full THP review.

  15. DawgDaddy says:

    Very smooth looking driver, Nike has really got my attention here lately. I really want to hit this one soon.

  16. ghsace says:

    Very interesting. Love the look. Intrigued about the feel. Will have to demo it.

  17. Dirtydawg67 says:

    Sweet looking driver. I look forward to hitting it at some point. Not sure if the 430cc head will offer enough forgiveness though.

  18. TinCupWannaBe says:

    I’m loving the look of this, and I like the smaller head as well

  19. The Belbs says:

    This is the best looking driver to come out since the VR Pro driver (that I currently game) Wow I really can not say enough about it, beautiful doesn`t begin to describe it. I would game this in a heart beat hopefully I get to hit this one at some point.

    I am a huge fan of the smaller head, I love the 420cc head on my driver, and the shape, this one being a touch bigger can only help

  20. 10YardDraw says:

    I love the looks of this driver and I cant wait to give it a few swings. Im worried about the forgiveness like others are, 430cc might not do it for me.

  21. mattykrack17 says:

    Sweet! This will be on the list with a few other drivers. THP always brjnging the good stuff. Thanks for the heads up! Hope THP gets one of these for a review

  22. Damaikis says:

    I was looking at possibly getting the VR Pro, now I’ll have to look at this one! Seems awesome!

  23. Paulo says:

    This looks lovely. Not sure I’d get along with it, but I’d love a swing!

  24. Canio says:

    I’d love to demo it. I haven’t owned or demoed a Nike driver.

  25. Jeff Conner says:

    Great looking driver for sure. Will have to hit this if our course gets it in for demo.

  26. Scott says:

    Looks eerily similar to the Titleist drivers of old. I love it, but I’ll just bet Tiger had a lot to do with this design. I’d love to get one in my bag. Good work, Nike.

  27. Smallville says:

    I am not a Nike guy, but wow, this thing looks sharp.

  28. Griff says:

    Always been happy with Nike stuff after a demo. Really like the looks of this one.
