A premium set of irons for $399? How, when and where are going to be the next words out of most golfer’s mouths. These said irons are the new AFX Pro Series irons and are part of the growing Air Force One line of golf products. There is secret sauce here in that the irons use compressed nitrogen, like the Air Force One driver that was reviewed about 18 months ago. The driver was impressive in that it proved to be stable and consistent for golfers that tend to spray the ball off the tee. It’s more of the same with the irons. A lot of control and just enough power to build your confidence.
“Having some of the best clubs on the market has been an Air Force One tradition, and while some people may not think of us the same way they do about mega-brands, there’s one thing about Air Force One that has never changed,” explains Ross Kvinge, President of Air Force One Golf. “We know how to make great clubs.”
It appears to be in Air Force One’s DNA, or should I say in the element symbol, N for nitrogen. Air Force One holds several patents in the golf sector to market relating to nitrogen products. The scientifically proven compressed nitrogen gives extra support to the club face so golfers can benefit from maximum COR and the maximum trampoline effect that is produced. The learning curve with these irons is short. They are ready right out of the packaging. Testing with a number of golfers resulted in positive feedback. Players were able to get consistent distances and loved the way the sticks felt in their hands and while swinging. The players loved the fact that they were able to launch the ball, with still feeling control. Those looking for distance were impressed and those looking to get more air under their shots has their problem solved. These clubs are clean and powerful with great built in technology and a great price tag, starting at $399. The nitrogen infused 3 and 4 irons were praised for their sweet spot. This is more of the same, from people that have put a lot of pride into making great golf clubs.
“I feel this is a strong move for the Air Force One brand and the Nitrogen Charged Technology. In the past we had a broad range of products from recreational to premium. This confused the consumer as to who we are and what our goals were. We have seen this in the past with the likes of MacGregor, Spalding/Top Flite and even today with Wilson and TaylorMade with the Adams Brand,” said Kvinge.
This is the next step from Air Force One as they will continue to develop and offer more in their golf product categories. From drivers to fairway woods and premium irons, it’s all about affordability and offering premium clubs to all golfers. Look for the re-launch of the DFX MOI and DFX Tour driver, new high tech fairway woods and the Air Foil. The Pro Series irons and the newly introduced AFX Game Improvement irons are the next step for this company that is looking to offer a big assortment of products that will make a small dent in your wallet and the consistency golfers all over the world need and want.
