Conclusion: After a recent round of using this ball I was not satisfied with the performance it offered. Although it was pretty long. It feels firm, not mushy and not like a rock. The spin on full shots into the greens was not great. It took about five or six yards for it to stop on full wedges. This is probably due to the ionomer cover. Durability is only average, one ball would last maybe four or five holes.
Summary: Like every golfer I'm trying to find the "perfect" ball for my game. The Vapor is a nice compromise but it is exactly that. Very good off the driver and great feel with the putter, it tends to lack on greenside control and fares average off the irons. Long and mid iron behavior is similar to most mid-range 3 pc balls but approach/wedge shots need compensation for a little roll. Chip shots check but still roll out.
Summary: I had high expectations for the Nike Vapor and so far it hasn't lived up to it. The best attribute is its feel off the putter-- similar to premium balls. Driver distance is good enough, and durability is above average. The downside is its lack of greenside manners. Almost feels like a muted rock ball off the wedges. I mainly play mid range balls (Hot Bite, Burner TP, E+) and my scores are higher with the Vapor balls.
Summary: Great Ball!!!!!!!! Nice long flight. Not alot slicing or hooking. I can get this ball to stick hitting the green with full irons or wedges and back up a couple of inches. Nothing like the pros but all that I need. This biggest thing I like about these is how well they last. I play alot of golf and say I shoot in the low 90s because I dont cheat.... This is a really good ball from somebody who knows alot about golf.
Conclusion: As with most golfers, I am searching for the ball that gives me the most "bang for the buck". I have played two rounds with the Nike One Vapor and I am extremely happy with how well it plays. Moderate short game spin, nice mid-firmness, and it does scuff with wedges, but not as bad as other Ionemer balls. I usually play the Bridgestone E6+ or Callaway Hot Bite Plus.
