Description The SV Tour wedges have classic profiles and grinds which provide a clean look with maximum versatility. A CNC milled flat face provides consistent golf ball response off the club face for more accurate golf shots. These featured provide the control, confidence, and accuracy necessary for a solid short game.
Summary: Gobs of spin, accurate, and a soft feel. Very playable and consistent. Picked the 52 up to replace my aging gap wedge and have since picked up the 56 & 60. Never would have considered Nike as a wedge company but I am surprised and love these wedges. I really have nothing bad to say about these clubs. Performance ranks up with the big names.

Summary: Picked this club up on e-bay for $40 like new! Had to find something to replace my Titleist your chrome that was stolen. I may like this one better. It seems to play softer off tight lies and actually gets more spin. I have noticed it fraying a few balls on longer shots. Out of the ruff it doesn't lose much staying power on the green. Couldn't be happier after the first 5 rounds.

Summary: Really NICE wedge!
I was in the market for new gap and sand wedge that wouldn't empty my pockets. I came across these and bought them both on ebay for around 40 bucks, and they were worth every cent. Everyone was telling me to get vokeys but they are so pricey even on ebay they still run for 70+ dollars and the grooves wear down so quick. These nike wedges have the same spin and feel with way better durability. The first shot I hit with these wasat a par 3 that was a short 135 yarder pulled out the gap and stuck it 5 feet next to the pin. I knew I had made a great purchase.
GOOD PRICE GREAT SPIN WORKABILITY what else could you ask for.
Summary: Man these are nice wedges. i've used Cleveland CG12s a lot over the last 12 months and decided to throw them in the bin. They really are the most overrated wedges around. I have given the Titleist spin milled wedges a big go over the last few months as well, and i do really like them, but i think either of these 2 wedges come close to the SV tours.
and one thing i can gurantee is that neither spin more than the SV tours, my god these things get some 'fizz' on the ball.
they are incredibly soft to hit when hit properly, and my distance control and accuracy have improved no end since using these. especially compared to the CG12s, which were all over the place (long/short and wide).
I'm starting to really appreciate the quality of equipment Nike is bringing out these days, and these wedges are a mile cheaper than most of the other 'top line wedges' and as far as i'm concerned, are better.
i have been playing my 52* gap wedges solidly (4 to 5 rounds per week) over the last year and it is showing severe signs of wear (but still performing stunningly), but at the price you can buy these for i dont mind replacing weges every 12 - 18 months.
i was playing with a couple of trainee pros last week, one using the new callaway x forged wedges, the other spin milled titleists, and neither of them could believe the amount of spin i was getting compared to them....
and just today, i hit 2 flags sticks from 80 to 100 out in the one round.
these things are deadly accurate.
i use callaway irons, but just could never change from these wedges, and as long as i can keep getting them from ebay cheap, i will be using them for years to come (unless something else spectacular comes out soon).
People, dont get fooled by some fools that say Nike golf equipment isnt up to standard or 'tour' quality, it really is, and these wedges are top of the tree!
