Lynx Prowler VT Irons Review: You need to know
An ultra-modern forged hollow body muscle back iron, which has plenty of internal tech to make the VT friendly on off-centre hits. Lynx say the VT has a variable thickness forged face to deliver ball speeds unexpected in the category. It also flights shots higher for extra playability.

Lynx Prowler VT Irons Review: We say
It took plenty of head scratching and heated discussion before we agreed the VT was worthy of a place within out Top 10 better player irons of 2018. First off lets say the performance was very solid, with ball speeds, backspin and carry distance right on our test average. Our test pro reckoned the VTs looks and shaping were fantastic, and we all liked the concept of a forgiving blade.
But we also thought the VT didn’t quite offer quite the same levels of forgiveness as the other hollow body irons on test (TaylorMade P790 and Titleist AP3). It’s probably down to the VT not boasting any high-density tungsten weighting which focuses mass in very specific areas which the other two do.

Lynx Prowler VT Irons Review: Verdict
At a time when good looking hollow head irons are growing rapidly in popularity we wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t highlight at £599 the VT are a fantastic option, particularly if you can’t run to £1K for a set from the bigger brands. Think of them as a playable blade and you won’t go far wrong.
