    Looks good, I wonder if this is only offered in low lofts or if its a full iron set.<br />

    Doesn't it look like that diamond-plate graphic is peeling off?

    Nike hasn't released a driving iron yet, could this be it? These always seem to be released around majors

    Could be tape of some sort to cover up the actual club identifier.

    Love it when low-lofted irons get press. Always makes me dip into the garage and throw one in the bag.

    THE FOLLOWING IS PURELY SPECULATION****<br />
    <br />
    But it looks like the area with the Swoosh and MMProto engravings could be a hollow interior, and perhaps capped with Tungsten to bring weight back up. If I'm purely spit-balling that MM could stand for Multi-Material.

    You could be right... Could be a Nike version of the 712U, Ping Rapture, Taylormade UDI etc

    You know, it's funny how in the last year or so all of the American manufacturers are bringing these driving/hybrid irons out like it's something new and people are like wow! What a great club. Fact is, once again, they are late to the game here in America. The Japanese manufacturers, Srixon, Bridgestone, Mizuno and many other's have been making these clubs for many years. The American companies, I swear, I'm not saying their stuff isn't good or is junk (most of it is nice nowadays), but they are behind. Along with many other products.

    I like the tee marks on the sole, hitting it dead center.

    ^^^its just coming back. Driving irons were pretty popular 10-12 years ago (roughly????). They're just coming back with modern tech.

    I can't wait to hear more about this, Tiger and Rory helping design and putting this into play next week would be cool to see. Interested to see if it hits the market. I want to see what else Nike is working on though...

    I love the overall shape and look of the sole grind but, man, the Swoosh placement and medallion (or whatever it is) in the cavity look pretty bad to me. Nike usually nails it with this type of thing and 12 of my 14 clubs are Nike, but not a fan of this one. At least not the graphics/appearance.<br />
    <br />
    Rory seems to be hitting it pretty darn flush based on the paint mark from his tee.

    Since it's a proto. The medallion is there to not "show" the finished product. Or to hide it?<br />
    <br />
    Might look radically different than the actual release product, if it ever comes to the public.

    Nike has yet to release details on the long iron but did say it was a collaborative design between McIlroy, Tiger Woods and engineers at The Oven. Based on the photo, it appears the club has a thicker piece of material in the lower portion of the cavity that, on paper, would lower the center of gravity and boost the club's launch angle.

    Love the geometric lines of the design. It actually meshes well with his satin blades too. I'd definitely buy one.
