Following on from the success of the previous Slingshot range, the new and improved Nike Slingshot Mixed iron set give you the perfect blend of added forgiveness with the hybrids and high launch oversized irons.

These are going to split opinion. The Slingshots are game improvement irons in the extreme. The heavy powerbow rod on the top sole make these irons almost look like hybrids and in my mind are not what I look to look down on wh I sit 180-yards from the pin.

In terms of feel, the Slingshots really come up short but that’s to be expected from irons aimed at high handicappers. Bad feel and a horrible sound at impact.

Heel, toe, fat or thin you can’t really miss with these clubs. You’ll lose minimal distance from poor shots but you also won’t see a vast improvement for properly struck hits. The Slingshots have a very high ball flight and it’s hard to work the ball.

Verdict

Designed for high handicappers, these are a decent set of irons for the happy hackers among us.
