Now Nike fires another Slingshot

Nike Slingshot OSS iron

Hot on the heels of its announcement of its latest beast of a driver – the SasQuatch 460 - Nike is launching a new model of Slingback irons, which it claims will take forgiveness to a new level for handicap club golfers.

The Slingshot OSS (oversize) irons will have their centre of gravity – it’s this which helps get the ball airborne – lower and deeper than ever before and will also assist in squaring the clubface at impact.

In February, you can expect to pay £549 for a set of 3-iron to pitching wedge with steel shafts or alternatively £549 for 4-iron to PW with graphite shafts. Individual graphite irons will cost £79 each.

By using lighter, thinner Cryo Steel in the face, Nike says it has allowed its engineers to save weight and shift it to areas of the clubhead to enable club player to hit the ball ‘higher, longer and more accurately, with softer landings.’

A Dual Glide sole, according to Nike, has been engineered to provide the club head with smooth flow through the impact zone.

With the nights drawing in and a chill in the air, Ping Collection has released news of its thermal fleece, part of its Function3 Dynamics range for Autumn/Winter.

The Kenzie fleece is made from a polyester and Elastane stretch fabric and has sleeves that can be detached by studs in seconds. It’s available in either black/lead or lead/black in sizes from small to XXL at a cost of £65.
