Original Nike blades

Vala93Vala93 Members Posts: 18
hey guy this is my first post I have just signed up.

I have just bought some original Nike blades, I'm an old school kind of guy I play Taylormade T300 forged irons now l. I'm only 24 so I don't really know anything about these clubs. So looking for some help.



They have no serial numbers, original Nike grips, the Nike stickers on the shaft and the shafts are true temper stiff shafts are these legit ?

    one of the softest feeling forgings that nike has used - probably ever. they're pure butter. jealous -- i'm on the lookout for a set in great condition myself.

    Congrats on the purchase! Great move.



    I just picked up a near mint set of original Nike blades a couple of weeks ago. The weather here in the Northeast has not cooperated enough to allow me to go out and play a round with them yet, but planning to do so in the near future.



    As noted above, they are drop-dead-gorgeous! Nothing else even comes close. I currently own and have played Mizuno MP-5, PXG 0311T, Nike Vapor Pro and VR Pro irons. All blades or blade-like. All gorgeous looking and feeling, but these totally put them to shame - at least in the looks department!



    Will report back on feel once I hit them on the range and course.

    Yeah I'm in Manchester weather isn't great here either.



    And I'm I love with the look they are beautiful. I was going to book the day of work and go to the range but my missus answered the door and I got "oh more golf clubs" so I think I better earn some money so next time I can book a delivery slot !

    I have pics of the VR pros and the Vapor Pros, but have not taken pics of the original blades yet. The ones I picked up are mint - all shiny, with no nicks or dings and all the paintwork still in great shape. Will post pics soon.



    In the meantime...

    The original Nike blades are high on the excellence scale IMHO. I don't own a set but I've hit them several times. I have thought about acquiring a set, but I'm pretty committed to my world of Golden Rams Tour Grinds with a single Mizuno sidelight, I don't really need a large rotation of clubs.



    Side note of sorts: these Nikes have weak lofts, with a 49* PW and 29* 5 iron. Don't get discouraged if they are shorter than other irons. Don't think in terms of the number of the club you've hit, think in terms of the lofts of the club you've hit. Club numbers don't have any real meaning, they can be changed without affecting the shot in any way. image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />
    The Ever Changing Bag!

    Driver: Adams Fast 12 LS 9.5* set to 10.5*, Xcaliber T6+, TS, 44.25", D6
    3w:  Bridgestone J's Professional Weapon 14*, stock stiff, 42.5", D5
    1i:  Golden Ram Vibration Matched, DGS400
    3-PW:  Mizuno MP-37, DGS300
    GW:  Mizuno Pro 52*, DGS300
    SW:  Scratch 8620 58*, DGS400
    Putter: Cleveland Huntington Beach #1 35"
    Balls: in no particular order... Wilson Staff FG Tour, Duo Urethane/Professional, or 50 Elite, Srixon ZStar/ZStar XV, Snell MTB Black... will trot out Maxfli HT-100 or Elite 90 from time to time

    I've proven once again that anything over 44.5" or even 44.25" is a horrible fit for my tee game

    Yeah I heard the lofts are high.





    I play Taylormade t300 irons now the pw is 48 degrees I've played these about 3 years and I don't really have any reason to change they are super soft when hit well. But the Nikes just look amazing

    I just got a set a few weeks ago in rougher shape. I'm planning on sending them to the iron factory for a rechrome and regroove. I can't wait.

    They're great. A fantastic set of irons with great feel, and as NRJyzr said, don't let the weak lofts put you off; in fact, embrace them! You can play 3i-PW, stick in 2 wedges (say a 54* and 58* or 60*) and still put a Driver and two fairway woods, or Driver, fairway wood and hybrid in there. Heck, you could even take out the 3i and give yourself another slot in the bag to play with.

    Great pick up, enough to make up for having to live in Manchester image/taunt.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':taunt:' />

    Thanks. Still very much in love with them, but there is a chance that after hitting the original Nike blades, the Vapor Pros might need to find a new home. Hard to justify three Nike sets...



    So might end up on BST. Will ping you beforehand, if you like.

    I was thinking the same thing I play a 54 and 58 now so they should fit in perfect. I'll play around till I find the right set up, I play at least 3 times a week so should get use to them pretty quick.





    Ey Manchester isn't all that bad 😂🙄

    I used to have a 1-iron from the original Nike blades. Not that I could hit it.. But why not buy a Nike 1 iron blade for $14 at the PGATSS?!



    Wish I still had it. Would be great hanging on the wall.

    The 18s are in the bag. Its easy to justify extra sets of irons.

    I had a set when they first came out but sold them years ago. I haven’t hit the new set and prob won’t until they are refinished.

    Ah my specialist subject image/biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' /> I've had a set in the bag since 2004, and am still really struggling to think of what to replace them with. I also moved across from a set of 300 Forged, and if I'm honest, I actually found them easier to hit than the TMs, especially in the long irons. As mentioned they do have weal lofts, and the shafts are half an inch shorter as standard, so I was a club shorter than the 300s, however I solved this by taking an extra club image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />



    All shafts are DG - R are R300, S are S400 and X are X100. Mine have S400s and I love the balance of them - great for tempo and I don't feel like the head is trying to carry on at the top of my backswing like the 300s did if that makes sense.



    I also picked up the 1 and 2 iron. Don't carry the 2 iron much, but the 1 iron doesn't leave my bag - perfect for when I need to find the fairway 220 yards away.



    As you can probably tell, I'm a bit of a fan image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />
