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.
