The second generation of the revolutionary Slingshot irons take forgiveness to a new level. The deeper CG position, wider sole and lighter/hotter face make high, long and accurate iron play easier than ever. The new Slingshot OSS (OverSize Slingback) is an extension of the highly-acclaimed Slingshot, which was awarded the 2004 Iron of the Year by Golf Digest. Nike Golf engineers have shifted the center of gravity lower and deeper in the Slingshot OSS to take forgiveness to a whole new level and make it easier to square the clubface.
Center of Gravity
Nike Golf has moved the center of gravity further beyond the face, resulting in Air CG+ by deepening the slingback design, widening the dual glide sole and incorporating a lighter, hotter cryo steel face. The Slingshot OSS boasts a center of gravity position that is well beyond the thickness of the clubface, making it easier to hit the ball higher, longer, more accurately and with softer-landing shots. 29 grams of saved weight have been placed further back in the clubhead's new oversize slingback, as well as lower in the wider dual glide sole. All of this combines to enhance perimeter weighting and increase the MOI, which helps resist clubhead twisting on impact for more forgiveness.
The cryo steel clubface is thinner, stronger and creates a hotter ball speed than conventional stainless steel. A robotically controlled laser weld maximizes the cryo steel faceplate size to create a large, more responsive sweet spot.
3-D Flow Weighting
Through 3-D flow weighting, the Slingshot OSS irons have weight strategically and uniquely distributed in each clubhead. Long irons have weight concentrated low, rearward and in the heel to help you square the clubhead and get the ball airborne. As the club numbers increase throughout the set, the slingback design incrementally shifts higher and toward the toe to precisely calibrate trajectory and spin rat. This prevents shots from ballooning while maintaining the ability to hold greens.
