The new VR X3X Toe Sweep wedges have a wider sole area toward the toe and a relieved heel for versatility around the greens and to make it easier for golfers to hit out of the bunker.
“We built the VR X3X Toe Sweep wedges from the ground up,” said Nike master modelmaker Mike Taylor.
“Our tour athletes have told us that the toe side of the sole is most critical in bunker performance. In a bunker shot, these new wedges are carefully crafted to provide bounce relative to the path of the clubhead,” he said.
“Around the green, our athletes ask for material to be ground away from the heel to aid open-face versatility and we’ve done that with this new design,” said Taylor.
The toe-sweep sole is a combination that blends attributes of several of Nike’s most functional grinds.
Included in the VR X3X line are the Dual Wide sole wedges, which have a wide “c-shaped” grind with heel and toe relief to make it easy to launch the ball high with maximum spin.
Nike’s X3X groove technology features grooves that are closer together and deeper on the clubface. Nike Golf engineers added width to the shape of the existing X3X grooves to create a new X3X 27 groove design for the VR X3X line of wedges to improve spin consistency for more precision when approaching the green.
Both VR X3X wedges feature a satin chrome finish, Dynamic Gold Wedge shafts and Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grips.
