Nike Pro Combo Utility Iron?


giogolf

Recommended Posts

Any users, negative or positive??
Hey All,

I am still looking for a 5 wood, Hybrid, or Utility iron, so my first venture is teh Nike Pro Combo Utility iron. I played all last year with a 2 iron blade and have since moved on to my beloved I302's. I can hit the 2 and 3 irons great off the tee for position, but off the deck is another story, maybe 70% of the time it works out.

So before I go 5 wood, or Hybrid, I stumbled on the low price low offset of the Nike Pro Combo Urility iron in 18*. Are there any users out there? If so what do you think? How is it off the deck and the tee? Deep ruff performnace I could care less about, becasue thats a gamble shot anyway.

Thanks

i've got a 18* nike pro combo utility iron and its a great club. excellent off the tee, easy off the fairway and easier than an iron from the rough. you can play a number of shots with this and trajectory control is easy with it. i got this to replace my 5 wood and it was an excellent dicesion. for some reason i strugle with the 5 wood. i originally had the stock speed step steel shaft, but recently switched it out with a rifle 6.0 1-iron shaft. haven't taken it on the course yet, but on the range its a great upgrade. its brought the ball flight lower and more boring, but puts a good spin on the ball so it will fall softly.

 

i've made the switch to a wood hybrid, taylormade rescue dual tp and nike slingshot tour. i found both of these to have all the benefits of the pro combo utility iron, but the added advantage that they are even easier from the rough. you do lose a little bit when striking down on the ball to alter trajectories.

 

as cheap as the pro combo utility is going, especially on ebay, its a cheap experiment to try. even with the taylormade rescue dual and slingshot tour, i won't give my pro combo utility iron up.

I play with my friends a lot and it is a great club. I love the feel of irons and dont like the "weird" feel of hyrbids (even though i have one) and you can do ANYTHING with the club. I am going to buy one in the next month to replace my taylormade and you wont be mad if you made the purchase. and just think, buying that club on ebay is cheaper than buying a dozen ProV1's, so its not like you are emptying your bank account. Good Luck with it and I hope you dont regret it, I know I wont.

I'm here to chime in with a "neutral" review. In general, long irons and fairway wood play are the weakest parts of my game, so in addition to working on my swing, I'm always open to potential equipment changes in this area. As a little background, my swing speed merits no more than a regular shaft in the driver.

 

I purchased a Pro Combo Utility a few months ago completely on a whim -- the 20 degree model. Ebay price was too low to resist (in general, these things are going dirt cheap online).

 

First day I played after that, didn't have an opportunity to hit it, so I took it to the range on the way out. Hit only a half dozen balls -- after 1 mishit, I hit 4-5 great balls in a row with it. Positives were: 1) impact felt very solid and gave good feedback, 2) ball flight (for me) was low to mid and very penetrating.

 

But, when I took it out to the course, the results just didn't show up. I thinned it, I skulled it, I just couldn't quite get this club to work well for me out on the course. Maybe I'm just used to the look and feel of the Nike CPR iron-wood (which gets a big thumbs up from me), and adjusting to the PC utility was just too much in the same round.

 

If you're already okay with the long irons (and just want a little more forgiveness), or have a stronger/faster swing, I can see this being a good club. If you're like me and looking for something to help get you from bad to solid, the PC utility may not be the answer.

 

Good luck!
