    Just got in a nice 3-aw Nike VPC set from eBay. Appears that the VPC should be a tad easier to hit than my trusty Nike VR pro combos? Looking forward to trying these VPC tomorrow. Also trying find the easiest/best way to MM PROTO this set. Any and all information on how to do that is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    The black finish on The 4 iron in my set was really starting to wear so it came off really clean using a buffing wheel on our grinder. The rest of the set wasn’t so easy. Sand paper...buffing wheel...sand paper...buff. Never got it all off. Irons have kind of a black mirror polish look.

    I still have to clean up the paint, but here’s a pic of my redone VPCs.

    Just picked up a set! Excited to finally give them a go.

    Thinking about either the MMProto look or swapping out the volt for White and refinishing the PVD so the black looks new.

    Felt good enough swinging into the net my P790s might be a backup set moving forward

    ** by refinish, i really meant, strip it then repaint black (on the 3 or 4 clubs that actually need it), since parts of the black are wearing pretty noticeably. Sorry for the confusion since there is no way i replicate a PVD process at home lol. Might see if the body shop at my dealership can hook me up with a black auto paint and use the mini booth they have to have a go at it too.

    Still loving them. Had a set of heads that I MM Proto-ed and then sent to Continental to build up a set with Dg Tour issue S300 AMT shafts. They are the back up to my J15 CBs.

    They have this awesome feel and great, consistent performance. IMO right up there in the top 5 irons ever made!

    Will definitely get some play this summer.

    Would love to see pics of what you do. I am thinking about adding a Nike Vapor Speed long iron (hollow heads, filled with polymer, if that sounds familiar) at 4 iron and then VPC at 5-PW. The Vapor Speed is another iron ahead of its time. If you look at similar irons now, most have thicker top lines and more offset than the Speed.

    Thanks. There are some super deals on there. I actually had already ordered a Vapor Speed 4 in very nice shape for $20. They’re cast so they hold up well. Note Dallas Golf also has the Vapor Fly in a three-iron set (long/mid) for $119 NEW for all three.

    The Speed will be my first foray with either. I like that it looks more like the VPC but I’d play the Fly. Will see. I did have a set if Fly Pros briefly, but I just did not like them as well as the VPC. I’m just having fun with them. I have always wanted to try them in a shaft besides the stock DG Pro stiff (which I like, very good fit in steel for me.) Am enjoying the various graphites. I think an 85-95 gram graphite swapped into this Speed/VPC combo would be fun.
