An extremely compact head that will scare many less confident ball-strikers. The biggest strength of this club is its workability. In our testing we noticed that this delivered a low flight and like the driver the fairway wood is undoubtedly suited to fast swinging, low handicappers.

Why you can trust Golf Monthly Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test .

Designed with the same technology as the Nike VR STR8-FIT Tour driver , but with a split compression channel that is combined with a smooth sole to help clip the ball away from tight fairways. Again the STR8-FIT technology allows the choice of 32 different face positions.

The Nike VR (Victory Red) STR8-FIT Tour fairway wood should suit golfers who want an extremely compact fairway wood, are confident enough to vary the flight and trajectory, and/or want to change flight characteristics to suit conditions.

Nike VRS Covert 2.0 Driver Review

More in drivers:.

PING G430 MAX 10K Driver

50 Word or Less

Both models receive major performance upgrades for 2014.  For better players, the Tour model may be the best off the rack driver of the year.  If you’ve been sleeping on the swoosh, it’s time to wake up.

Introduction

Last year, Nike’s Covert driver was the hottest pre-release in the industry due to its ground breaking design and adjustability.  This year, the VRS Covert 2.0 got the kind of hype you can’t buy: Tiger Woods put it into his bag at his World Challenge event and put on a driving clinic that had people thinking about the skinny 21 year old who ran away with the Masters in 1997.

The Covert 2.0 takes the same elements that made the Covert a head turner – the cavity back design and flex loft hosel – and adds Fly-Brace technology, which Nike claims adds stability and forgiveness.  Does this evolution allow Covert 2.0 to keep pace with some of the other great drivers of 2014?  Yes, and then some.

Nike Covert 2.0 Driver (1)

The overall look of the Covert 2.0 is virtually identical to the original Covert.  The signature dark red crown is back along with the white swoosh on the heel.  If, one year later, you still can’t get over the swoosh, then yes, time has truly passed you by.

Both the standard and Tour models have traditional looks from address.  The Tour model is just slightly shorter from front to back, but it’s still 460cc.  The other noticeable difference between the standard and Tour models is that the face and sole of the Tour model are black, the standard is silver.

While the standard Covert 2.0 is a good looking driver, the Tour model is in the top 2 or 3 for 2014 , to my eye.

Nike Covert 2.0 Driver (29)

Sound & Feel

When it comes to sound and feel, both Covert 2.0 models have much in common.  The first thing that struck me was how there was virtually no auditory difference between misses and centered shots.

There is a slight difference between the Tour model and the standard is the character of the sound.  The Tour model is a little bit duller, more of a thud.  The standard Covert 2.0 has a slightly more hollow, explosive sound at impact.

All across the face, the feel is generally solid.  There is a different feel in your hands on a flushed shot compared to a mishit, but mishits don’t translate into a bad, twisting feel like they do with many less forgiving drivers.

Nike Covert LM

Performance

This is where Covert 2.0 really separates itself from its predecessor.  In both models, the spin has been dialed down and the forgiveness is absolutely off the charts.

Let’s start with spin.  Some players found the original Covert to be a little spinny, but that is something no one will be able to say about the Covert 2.0.  The standard Covert 2.0 is low spin; for the average guy, it’s going to be a beast.  The Covert 2.0 Tour is you-better-bring-some-speed-or-it’s-knuckleball-city low spin.  I suspect that part of the reason for the Tour’s low spin is the shaft, but, regardless of the reason, it’s a club that high spin players must try this year.

The other standout feature is the forgiveness.  Every major driver out there is forgiving, but the Covert 2.0 completely shocked me with how much ball speed it retained on serious mishits.  There were a number of swings where I thought, “That was terrible, the ball speed will be in the low 130’s” and yet it stayed north of 140MPH.  What’s even better is that the forgiveness is there even in the Tour model.

A key difference that potential buyers should be aware of when deciding between the Covert 2.0 and the Covert 2.0 Tour is the shaft.  The standard model uses a Kuro Kage variant that is counter balanced (you can learn more about counter balancing HERE ).  Counterbalancing isn’t a good or bad thing – some people will like it, others won’t – but you should be aware of it when you try it out.  The Tour model features the Kuro Kage TiNi which is as solid a stock shaft as you’re likely to see and a major reason why I think that the Covert 2.0 Tour may be the best OTR driver of 2014 .

Finally, for those unfamiliar with it, I want to give a quick primer on Nike’s FlexLoft technology.  In short, it’s the most complete adjustable hosel on the market.  Players can change the club’s loft from 8.5° to 12.5° and open or close the face angle.  This flexibility makes the Covert 2.0 a club that can adapt to any condition.

Nike Covert 2.0 Driver (15)

Whether you were a fan of the original Covert or not, you owe it to yourself to check out the VRS Covert 2.0 .   Nike kept the best parts from the original Covert, the looks and feel, and upgraded the performance exponentially.

The Nike VRS Covert 2.0 is adjustable from 8.5° to 12.5° of loft.

The standard model has a MRC Kuro Kage 2.0 Black HBP 50 shaft as the stock option.  The Tour Model features the MRC Kuro Kage 2.0 TiNi 60.

Matt: Would you guess that with a club head speed of 91.7 and BS of 121.2 the Tour model might be a stretch for me? I currently use the Nike Covert Performance 2013 model. Thanks, Jack

' src=

With spin around 3000, I think you should definitely give the Tour model a look. If you can get that number closer to 2000, you’d see much longer drives, assuming the launch angle was high enough.

Thanks for the input Matt. As a 12 ghin I get caught up in the “tour” model designation and think it should not be a consideration. I’ll give the tour a demo. Jack

follow-up I forgot to leave that my current backspin is around +/- 3000

' src=

I’ve been disappointed with every Nike club I’ve tried but they claim to be putting a lot of money into R&D . After seeing the numbers and your thoughts on this club maybe they are finally catching up. 1605 spin on the tour model is crazy.

' src=

is the convert tour 2 the best driver you have hit so far this year? is your spin 1605 correct? this comes from shaft or low spin head? how do you think the tour shaft would perform in the performance head? low spinning high moi? I have been looking for a sub 2000 shaft/head for years?? regards

The Covert 2.0 Tour is definitely near the top of the list, especially for off the rack clubs. Yes, 1605 is correct. Spin is a function of the head, shaft, and swing. The idea of a shaft being low spin is one of the biggest misconceptions out there. For me, the TiNi Kuro Kage was lower spin and better overall. For others, it won’t be. I would certainly suggest giving that combination a try, but I switching the shafts isn’t going to drop the spin for everyone. Also, as I mentioned, the Tour head is not unforgiving. I do think higher handicap players would probably be better served by the standard model, but average to better players should at least try the Tour version.

' src=

Hi, I really enjoy the reviews, however could you please add what shaft flex you are testing? I swing the driver in the 95-98 mph range and always seem to be in between flex’s. Thanks!

Unless it’s otherwise noted, Bill plays an X flex and I play a stiff flex.

The 95-98 MPH range can be tough; it really emphasizes the importance of a good fitting.

' src=

Matt, Nice review on the Covert 2.0. I picked up the Tour model and like it quite a bit. I have a swing speed around 98mph. Launch angle 14 deg, spin 2200. Distance around 250 yds. I just wonder if the TiNi is too stiff of a shaft. Any thoughts on swapping the shaft to the black HPB 50? Will that give more carry? Thanks.

Glad you’re liking the club. At 98 MPH, your optimal carry is going to be about 245 yards. That would require a little higher launch and a little less spin.

The HBP 50 is really different than the TiNi. It’s strongly counter balanced and less stiff. There’s no harm in trying it, but I couldn’t really give you an educated prediction as to what it will do with your golf swing.

' src=

Hi Matt, If you are in the process of buying the Nike Covert 2.0,would the fitting centre taylor make the shaft to your swing speed? and,is it true if you have a naturally fast swing would you go with the stiffer shaft?

Absolutely, any fitter should be able to help you pick the right shaft flex and model for your swing. With regard to flex, yes, faster swings generally fit stiffer shafts.

' src=

I went to a Nike Demo Day and, after trying various combinations and settings, the pro convinced me to get the regular Covert 2.0 driver head with the TINI shaft. After playing with the lofts I found the 8.5° neutral was by far the best ball flight. I am a 65 year-old with a 95+ MPH swing speed. Have you heard of anyone mixing and matching the head and shaft as described? My feeling is that, by chance. I have hit on a great combination. Any thoughts? Is there a better driver out there for me? Right now, I am quite happy with it. Thanks you for your attention.

Congrats on being fit for a combination that you’re happy with. The idea of mixing the heads and shafts has been raised before, and I think it’s a good one. The TiNi shaft is really excellent, particularly for reducing spin. In my opinion, the Covert 2.0 is one of the best drivers of 2014, so there’s no driver that I would say you have to try instead.

' src=

Great review. Bought the 2.0 covert with reg shaft. Most fairways I have ever hit with a driver. Have it set for 11.5 & left. Hit high draws with it all day long. It has replaced my R1. Handicap is dropping with the 2.0. I’m 60 with a usga of 13.9 and I expect to drop at lease 3 strokes by the end of the summer. I haven’t been on a launch monitor so I can’t give numbers. I bought it without a fitting.

' src=

any specs on the launch monitor data? loft used? shaft and flex? open or closed? just wondering if I’m to assume these were pulled from the shelf and if so, who’s shelf :)

10.5, stiff, stock shaft, square.

' src=

I have a swing speed of 90 Mph with an average drive of about 220 and a slight fade. Thinking about the non-tour 2.0 but have heard that this is a heavy driver. Would I be better served with a lighter driver or does it make that much difference? Thank you

Weight is absolutely an important consideration, but you should be leery of anyone who tells you to play a heavier or lighter club without seeing your swing (and probably some launch monitor data, too). My recommendation would be to bring your current driver and compare it head to head against the Covert 2.0 on a launch monitor. This is something you should be able to do at any big box golf shop.

' src=

Why the head weight and swing weight of Nike Covert 2.0 is so heavy (212 and D7) ? What advantage will be achieve from such a heavy club head? Is the clubhead speed probably reduce? I just got a regular covert 2.0 one with KuroKage red A Flex. I will replace the shaft to Mitsubishi b series 50 gm s flex. Will it give a better result? My approximately swing speed is 96 mph.

I can’t speak for Nike as to why they went heavier with the weight of this club. Some players do prefer heavier clubs, but the trend does seem to be towards lighter clubs to increase speed. Whether or not a heavier club will markedly reduce your speed is something you will only discover through trial and error. In theory, yes, lighter is faster, but some players may not be able to control it. As for changing shafts, you’re going from an A flex to an S flex which is a big jump. Based on your swing speed, I would guess the S will be a better fit, but can’t say for sure without seeing your swing.

Thank you for your advise Matt.

' src=

I am looking to buy the Covert 2.0 and I see that Dick’s have a red model and a dull black model. The shafts look to be the same specs even though one is red and the other is black. I have hit the red model but not the dull black model. I like the dull black finish better because it would not have the sun glare of the red. Could I assume they would be identical in performance.

Yes, they’re the same. The black is just a limited edition.

' src=

Hey Matt, I got this driver on sale and had no expectations whatsoever since I am so tired of going through different drivers. When I took it to the range I was blown away at how accurate and forgiving this club is. Maybe the heavy swing weight is working in my favor. A brief background, I sucked big time with the driver so this Covert working is something new for me. :)

' src=

Im a high handicap golfer looking for a driver to increase my distance and hit straighter drive. Which one of the two would you prefer?

High handicap players would probably do better with the standard model.

' src=

What is the flex on a 2014 nike vrs covert 2.0 model ?

It comes in A, R, S, and X.

' src=

I tried both side by side 3/20/16. Matt’s review is spot on. I average 90. The nontour version with S Kurokage shaft worked better for me in accuracy and consistency. The tour version was longer but a little easier to mishit. Both are the best drivers i have ever hit.

The only cons are the slippery golf pride grips and the Made in China stickers.

' src=

I recently bought this club looks like it was special made. Tour shaft. Standard head. This thing hits like a dream.

Sorry. Tour shaft. Do you think this is a better combination than the tour head?

There’s no universal better, only better for you. If your combo “hits like a dream,” I would stick with it.

' src=

Great, great and wonderful write-up….am a fan of the website and all the shaft and driver info./reviews. I’ve considered delving into buying the 2.0 as a test driver this year…. my stats: 46 years old, decent shape 5’10” 164 lbs…. 105-106 SS a hitter more than a swinger unfortunately… with a Titleist 917D@ fitting… I was 106 SS, 1.47 PTR (lower than optimal, because I’m rusty swinging the driver a touch :)…), 11.7 launch, ball speed mid 150s, just under 3000 spin….with a 44.5″ Fuji Pro tour spec. 73x>>>>looked good, numbers were ok fort a guy my age not playing much….but it felt odd when gaming it. All that is to say, which direction on this review would U steer an off-the-shelf buy of this driver from a few years back? Again, really do appreciate the info. on golf equipment you afford the readers…. Regards, Jason C. Wynn

Thank you, I’m glad you enjoy the site.

My honest opinion would be to steer you away from buying off the shelf. As a regular reader, I’m sure you’ve seen plenty of evidence for the benefits of fitting.

That said, I do like the Covert 2.0. The forgiveness was good and it was pretty low spin. I’m sure you can get quite a good deal on it now.

' src=

Just wanted to let everyone know I just got the standard version on academy sports website for $80. It says it’s “blemished” but was still wrapped in plastic. Only missing the wrench for adjustment which you can find online for around 5 bucks. This will be my second covert 2.0 You will not find a better driver for the price.

Nike VR_S Covert Tour Driver Review

Martin Hopley

The Nike VR_S Covert Tour driver is the smaller headed brother of the VR_S Covert driver with a head that is 30cc smaller at 430cc. This is quite normal for a Tour driver and certainly if you like this style of driver then the Covert will be in your ball park.

Apart from the white Nike swoosh on the inside of the heel, the dark red looks of the Covert Tour driver look great at address and complement the black face well. The 2 white groove lines on the bottom of the face really help with alignment too.

The face is still a generous size and the NexCor design offers pretty good forgiveness for this class of driver. The Mutsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage shaft is a good quality stick for a premium driver and helps drive the performance of the club.

On the course the Covert Tour driver felt very solid but did not give as much feedback as we would expect from a Tour driver. Maybe it is the hype that Nike have whipped up about this club, but it was a little underwhelming, even though there is nothing to complain about the cavity idea itself.

The cavity is a different take on the weight distribution for drivers and Nike should be congratulated on stepping out with this design. It does remind us a little of the square driver idea of weight in the sides and back corners rather than the middle of the back, but that could just be us.

One of the main features of the Tour version of the Nike VR_S Covert driver is the FlexLoft adjustable hosel. This covers one of the biggest ranges of loft we have seen with 4 degrees in one degree increments from 8.5 to 12.5 degrees. In addition it is only the second consumer driver we have seen that offers a second adjustable ring which is there to change the face angle to left/neutral/right.

Whether this also changes lie would be useful to know as you do need to be able to adjust loft and lie independently to really make adjustability work. However the sole has a decent camber on it so the changes in loft and face angle should mean that the lie of the club can adjust to suit the player easily.

Having 1 degree gaps is good, but maybe some more fine tuning at 0.5 or 0.75 degrees would have been better for a tour driver as there can't be many elite players who would need to increase their loft to over 11 degrees.

I am sure Rory can get this baby to go as far and as straight as he wants, but for the rest of us the Nike VR_S Covert Tour driver maybe needs to deliver a bit more to justify the higher price.

ULTIMATE REVIEW – Nike VR Pro Hybrid

“Every one of our testers told us that the Nike VR Pro Hybrid is longer than what’s in their bag today. They averaged just over 219.71 yards….which now makes it the longest hybrid we have tested.  I’m guessing the performance results are going to surprise a lot of people.  If you are buying a hybrid anytime soon…make sure to add this one to the demo list.”

Nike VR II Pro Hybrid

(Written By: GolfSpy_T) Very early this Spring we submitted the list of clubs we’d like to review to Nike. One club we actually left off our initial list was the 2011 Nike VR Pro hybrid. We did have some discussions about including it, but ultimately we just didn’t think there was enough buzz to warrant adding it to the list. Nike provided us with everything we asked for, and we more or less thought that we were done with Nike equipment for the year.

Now I can only speculate about what goes on behind the scenes at Nike, but here’s what I think happened. I think Nike, who for the last couple of years has been quietly (by Nike standards anyway) producing by far the best equipment in the company’s history, feels like some of their stuff isn’t getting the attention it deserves. Unfortunately for Nike, despite some significant (some might call them Major ) wins over the last couple of years by Nike athletes Stewart Cink, and Lucas Glover, and a feel good victory by the affable (and awesomely-named) Johnny Vegas, recent history probably hasn’t been exactly what the team at The Oven was hoping for. A handful of solid wins aside, the biggest name in the Nike Golf stable, and no doubt the driving force behind the company’s success at the retail level, was well into a downward spiral of positively epic proportions. It’s not that Cink and Glover aren’t very good golfers, and by all accounts decent people; the reality is they simply don’t draw people to product like Tiger once did.  Once again…just my opinion here; despite being better than they’ve ever been, interest in Nike Golf products probably ain’t what it used to be.

While smaller companies do it all the time, it’s less common for a big OEM to reach out to us and ask us to review a specific product. This however, is exactly what happened with Nike and their VR Pro hybrid. At first I was a bit puzzled. Why would Nike ask us to review a product that isn’t generating much buzz? As it turns out, that was precisely the issue. Nike had on store shelves what I think they believe to be one of the best hybrids on the market, and it appeared as if almost nobody was paying attention.

The Marketing Angle

On paper the new Nike VR Pro hybrid reads like most any new product. It has a 21% hotter face than the previous model. It features Nike’s compression channel technology along with variable face thickness for greater distance and control. From a design perspective the profiles, Nike claims, blend seamlessly with those of the VR Pro irons at address. All of this is fairly standard stuff, and it’s all meaningless if the club doesn’t perform.

nike vr tour

Nike ships it’s hybrids stock with “made for” variants of the popular Project X graphite shafts and a proprietary Nike grip from Golf Pride.

We don’t score on the grip, but our testers generally aren’t fans of (actually they despise) Nike’s standard grip. It actually feels pretty good (squishy, but not overly soft), but once there’s a little bit of sweat on your hands, forget about it. Good luck keeping a solid grip on the damn thing. In fact, the stock grip has become a bit of a running joke with our testers. Any time a Nike club is on the list for a given session, many of the guys ask to hit it first because they know that once they start sweating, all bets are off.

Yeah…I know it’s a little thing, and it’s not like we deduct points for it, but, as I just said, it’s a little thing, and one I think Nike can easily (and should) fix.

How We Tested

The 6 golfers for whom we collected detailed performance data were asked to hit a series of shots on our 3Track Equipped simulators from aboutGolf .  As usual, testing was done at Tark’s Indoor Golf , a state of the art indoor golf facility located in Saratoga Springs, NY.  Detailed data for each and every shot for which we collected data is now viewable in the interactive portion of this review .  This data serves as the foundation for our final performance score.  As a supplement to our 6 performance testers, a subset of additional golfers were given the opportunity to test the Nike VR Pro hybrid and provide feedback in our subjective categories (looks, feel, perceived distance, perceived accuracy, perceived forgiveness, and likelihood of purchase).  This information, which we also collected from our performance testers, is used as the foundation for our total subjective score. Though testers also had the opportunity to hit the 18° hybrid, for the purpose of data collection, formal testing was done with the 21° hybrid in the tester’s choice of regular (5.5) or stiff  (6.0) flex.

PERFORMANCE SCORING Distance Our testers averaged just over 219.71 yards with the Nike VR Pro Hybrid, which now makes it the longest hybrid we have tested (Adam Idea Pro A12 was previous longest) by about 3.5 yards. The numbers are very similar when we look at our adjusted averages (best and worst 2 shots removed from the equation). Specs may play a role in the added distance here. While the loft is 1° weaker than the previous long hybrid, we’d be remiss not to point out that the stock shaft is actually .5″ inches longer than than both the Titleist 910H and the Adams Idea Pro A12, and .25″ longer than the Cleveland Mashie. The added length most definitely translated to increased club head speed (+2 MPH on average compared to the last club we reviewed), and since speed often equals distance…well…you get it. MGS Distance Score : 95.82 Accuracy Looking at the raw numbers it’s reasonably safe to say that the extra .5″ of length had only a minimal impact on accuracy. Testers missed the center line by a raw average of 16.46 yards (15.65 adjusted), which is very similar to the results achieved by 2 of the 3 other hybrids we’ve tested this season. While some might be turned off by the longer shaft, we don’t find any significant cause for concern where accuracy is concerned. MGS Accuracy Score: 86.25 Consistency Consistency proved to be a bit of a mixed bag. Two of our testers put up numbers that I would classify as exceptional, while another put up very good numbers. While the remaining 3 weren’t stellar, only one tester put up would I would classify as below average numbers. On the whole the good results far outweighed the bad, which suggests that for many, the Nike VR Pro hybrid will prove to be a very consistent club. MGS Consistency Score: 94.18 Overall Performance I’m guessing the performance results are going to surprise a lot of people. I think it’s reasonably safe to say that Nike probably isn’t at the top of the list when it comes to hybrids, and yet, just as with the rest of the 2011 Victory Red lineup we’ve tested, the number suggests Nike’s clubs can more than compete with nearly anything else in the marketplace. MGS OVERALL PERFORMANCE SCORE : 90.87
SUBJECTIVE SCORING If you read our review of the Nike VR Pro Driver you may recall that Nike took a bit of a beating in some of our subjective categories (feel and sound chief among them). Although we don’t score hybrids for sound, as part of the VR family of woods, my expectation going into this is that the hybrid wouldn’t fair much better than the driver. Looks There’s a bit of a trend sweeping the hybrid space these days. Many manufacturers including Nike, Miura, and to an extent Cleveland are trying to give their hybrids a more iron like appearance by tweaking the crown design to better resemble the profile of an iron at address. While some appreciate that the profile of their hybrid closely matches that of their irons, others find the two-tone appearance off-putting. Personally, it’s not a design I’m overly fond of (I don’t personally care if my hybrids look like my irons or not), but I can appreciate the thinking behind it. I also appreciate the fact that unfinished portion of the crown (designed to look like the topline of an iron) is nearly impervious to sky marks. In the end, I’m basically ok with function over form. Though we did have a single 9, the majority of our testers definitely indicated they prefer a seamless crown design. A couple of testers mentioned that they find the compact head a bit intimidating, although for me that compactness is part of the appeal. MGS Looks Score : 80.09 Feel Most of our testers agreed that when hit on the sweet spot, the Nike VR Pro hybrid offers very good feel. Shots that missed that spot were greeted with puzzlement. What our testers (nearly to a man) told me is that although they wouldn’t say mis-hits feel bad, it’s simply that when you miss what one tester suggested was a very small sweet spot, they just feel weird. It’s admittedly difficult to quantify weird, but the majority of our testers thought sometimes great + sometimes weird = 8. MGS Feel Score : 80.63 Perceived Distance No big shocker here. Every one of our testers (with varying degrees of assertiveness) told us that the Nike VR Pro Hybrid is longer than what’s in their bag today. That’s an assertion that is largely supported by the data, and one with which I’m in complete agreement. If pure distance is your objective, look no further than the Nike VR Pro. Tester Perceived Distance Score : 99.44 Perceived Accuracy One quick look at our interactive test chart and you’ll see that our testers weren’t always finding the center line. To be sure I saw some great shots, but I also so some mis-hits, and some balls that tailed off in either direction. This has proven to be true of every hybrid we’ve tested thus far, so while not a stellar number, our testers were largely of the opinion that the VR Pro is as accurate as nearly any other hybrid they’ve tried. Tester Perceived Accuracy Score : 83.31 Perceived Forgiveness Our testers were all over their map with their perceptions of the VR Pro Hybrid’s forgiveness. Some found it extremely forgiving, while others felt that it was overly penal on mishits. My personal opinion is that’s it’s probably middle of the road in this category. I’ve definitely hit more forgiving hybrids, but I’ve hit a lot worse as well. Given the design, which almost certainly is geared towards better players, it’s about what you’d expect, if not slightly better. Tester Perceived Forgiveness Score : 86.00 Likelihood of Purchase It’s rare that a LOP score exceeds both the look and feel scores for a given club. In the case of the VR Pro Hybrid, that’s exactly what happened, however. While concrete evidence of nothing, it does suggest that our testers think enough of the performance aspects of this club that they’re willing to overlook some of the subjective things they don’t. While it’s not quite the highest LOP score we’ve ever seen, it’s certainly above average, and serves as further evidence that if you’re not looking at the Nike VR Pro, you’re probably overlooking one of your better option s. Tester Likelihood of Purchase : 86.00 Overall our testers scored the VR Pro hybrid similarly to the driver. They don’t hate it. In fact most found plenty to like about it, but there are some quirks that leave testers scratching their heads a bit. TOTAL SUBJECTIVE SCORE : 85.89
CONCLUSION I’ve commented in every hybrid review I’ve written that I absolutely prefer, hell I demand that my hybrids be relatively compact. I’ve never been particularly solid with a fairway wood, and as it turns out, the more a hybrid looks like a fairway wood, the less I’m inclined to put it in my bag. With that in mind, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that I really like the design of the VR Pro. Of course, we also can’t ignore the fact that the VR Pro is among the best performing hybrids we’ve tested in 2011. Perhaps it’s as simple as smaller head = better performance as the two smaller hybrids we’ve tested have outperformed the larger ones across a range of handicaps. It could also be that Nike has managed to create a very, very good hybrid that surprisingly (to me anyway) stands out above the crowd. While the VR Pro hasn’t replaced my gamer, it’s a clear choice among the other hybrids we’ve reviewed thus far. Look… I’m getting tired of being surprised by how well Nike clubs have performed for us. I was surprised by the VR Pro Combo Irons. I was surprised by the VR Pro wedges. I was surprised by the VR Pro driver. And now I’m surprised by the VR Pro Hybrids. I’m starting to feel like and idiot, so from now on, I’m done being surprised by unexpectedly good performance from Nike. From today forward, my expectation will be that Nike products will perform as good or better than most anything else. Based on the totality of what we’ve seen in 2011, I’ll save my surprised face for when they don’t. MGS TOTAL SCORE : 90.37

Also got a 3H 2 weeks ago in a sale. Wasn’t planning on buying anything in the shop. I’m having no complaints on my old hybrid – a starter’s club (pro-gen) cause I needed a urgent replacement for a iron 3 that went missing. It’s got a steel shaft which is no longer straight – but my shots still go straight for some reason. Anyway I hit a few balls in the shop with the Nike, the first one on the sweet spot and I surspected great things to happen. Could not resist the temptation, and the discount did the rest. Day after on the course I just got to use it twice. Didn’t hit any practice balls. Gripped it short as it’s indeed 5 inches longer than my old one. Both shots went well. Now today I went to the practice range and hit a lot of balls. I am happy now I didn’t grip it to its full length on the course, because my shots go easily 20 yards further than before! I would have missed the greens by miles… sweet spot hits feel great, a bit similar to my mizuno irons. off center hits still go OK-ish straight with far less distance, but I experienced a torture-like feedback from the club itself. That’s the reason I won’t mark them as forgiving – literally.

I bought these hybrids after reading the reviews about 4/5 months ago and couldn’t be more happy with them. They are extremely forgiving and accurate! Stock shafts were crap. Balls kept ballooning on me, so I changed them to DG SL s300s and they have a more penetrating flight.

I saw they have a “1” hybrid! Going to try and get one of those.

I pulled the trigger and picked up the Nike VR Pro 3H & 4H with P X 5.5 shafts yesterday.

The price was down to $80/each two weeks ago and yesterday they were 2 for $127.90…..so I got ’em.

If they hit anything similar to the matching VR Pro CB irons with the ssame shaft, I will be a winner.

BTW, the Nike shafts are about 1/2″ shorter than the Cally FTiz’s that I currently have. Hope they will go as far….will get to try them tomorrow.

I’ve had a 24deg. regular flex for a year love it. It’s just dead straight period. Hit it in a lot of places yeah, the rough a lot. It will do 175 every time with a good solid swing. First hybrid I’ve ever owned should have bought one long ago.

I also don´t like Tiger and what he has done (me being swedish and all) and I didn´t want to have any Nike products at all. Also I was very happy with my equipment when Nike came to the drivingrange at our club. Titleist driver, Mizuno 3wood and Srixon hybrids. They wanted me to at least try a club, so I tried the driver. Now I have Vr Pro driver, 3wood and hybrids in my bag! I have never hit a driver so far or a hybrid so straight!

To me, Nike has never been associated with the top tier of golfer. When I think Nike Golf I think Nike Tour. Obviously, I am not including Tiger, Kim, and Cink, but until the VR line came out in 2009 (irons only) most of the major players used “Prototype” equipment. When compared to Titleist or some of the others like the Callaway tour and pro lines, Nike had large offsets, and generally looked funky. The old Nike CRP hybrids looked ok but I did not play them well. Too much offset. Then they went to the canary yellow and flat black clubs that are just too trendy for my tastes. But with the new VR line it is a different story. Nike’s VR line looks to me to be reminisent of the Ben Hogan line in its last few years. I have not played them, I do have a VR Pro Driver on the way and two hybrids are not far behind. Not in the market for irons now. But they are good looking clubs that look like quality and not overdone with flames and stripes and matted finishes, etc. Titleist and Callaway seem to be going with garrish graphics that are a turn off. Bridgestone, looks good but seems incomplete. They start out with lots of graphics and then stop half way done. I have not decided if I like that or not, but to be honest, I have never seen a Bridgestone club being played. If Nike plays like it looks, then most people are missing out.

TOO BAD IT’S NIKE. THAT WILL STOP ME AND LOTS OF OTHERS FROM TRYING/BUYING. WE CHOOSE NOT TO SUPPORT ANYTHING THAT SUPPORTS WOODS, THE FORMER GOLFER AND NOW WORLDS’ #1 SCUMBAG.

Silly Goose!

You act like Tiger Woods runs the company, or that his behavior is indicative of the quality of club Nike makes. What a silly goose!

Also, unless you are literally shouting through a megaphone as you type, turn off the caps lock.

I made my self laugh imagining you screaming into a megaphone as you type. I stink.

Hypocrite!!!

Richard P. Jacobs II

WOW, that’s saying alot, considering his actions had ZERO impact on you, me or anyone outside of his inner circle & family…I would agree that he’s not the word’s greatest husband or father, but WORLD’S #1 SCUMBAG…If I held all of the companies to your standard, christ, I would probably have to eliminate most of em…Just so Mizuno & Adams never make the list…Greens & Fairways 4ever….

Joel……Growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional. Could you at least TRY doing the second part?

Well I bag a the 21 deg and it seems to work for me. Hit everything in the store and this was the longest and the one I never hit a hook with. I always called my old hybrids hook machines and this one never seems to want to go left. I can’t really work the ball with this thing, the ball is either dead straight or a slight push right, my preferred miss.

nikegolfjon

I have been playing Nickent hybrids for a few years. I tested them at the time and for cost effectiveness they worked great for me. I did have some nike cpr hybrids in the past and nothing has really set me afire with Nike hybrids since then. I have tried them over the years,but like I said nothing sparked. Then I hit these VR HYBRIDS and wow!

That’s not saying a lot. I’ll stick with my pro a12.

Golfspy Dave

:) I was mainly thinking about the return to a black crown being an improvement…

Looks so much better than last year’s.

Nike VR_S Covert Fairway Woods: Editor Review

nike vr tour

Pros: We love the adjustability of the VR_S Covert Tour fairway woods ($249), which gives golfers five different lofts and three different face angles to choose from. That makes them the most adjustable fairway woods you can buy. The Covert Tour is lower spinning and less forgiving than Nike’s non-adjustable standard model, the VR_S Covert ($199), but both models are pretty forgiving for their sizes.

Cons: They’re not quite as long as their competitors — notably Callaway’s X Hot or TaylorMade’s RBZ Stage 2 fairway woods — because they’re not as low spinning. Some golfers who fit into the standard model will be bummed that it lacks adjustability.

Bottom Line:  The adjustability of the Covert Tour fairway woods makes them great for tinkerers — golfers who want to use their 3 woods as a second driver one day and a second-shot club the next. Most PGA Tour players have gravitated toward the standard model, which is higher spinning, more forgiving and has a softer, quieter sound. Both models come with “real deal” Mitsubishi Rayon Kurokage shafts, making them a lot of fairway wood for the money.

Nike’s VR_S Covert and Covert Tour fairway woods feature the same cavity-back technology as Nike’s VR_S Covert drivers , which allowed engineers to increase the amount of perimeter weighting to make the clubs more forgiving. They also have Nike’s NexCor steel faces, which Nike says creates longer shots across a wider area of the face.

The standard, or “Performance” model, comes in two lofts: 3 wood (15 degrees) and 5 wood (19 degrees) with a Mitsubishi Rayon’s Kurokage Black 60 shaft in regular, stiff and x-stiff flexes. Check out the specs below.

Covert 3 Wood (15 degrees)

  • Club Head Size: 181 cubic centimeters
  • Length: 43 inches
  • Lie: 57 degrees

Covert 5 wood (19 degrees)

  • Club Head Size: 160 cubic centimeters
  • Length: 42 inches
  • Lie: 58 degrees
  • Head weight: 218 grams

The Covert Tour is also available in two models — 3 wood and 5 wood. But Nike’s FlexLoft system gives each model five different loft settings and three independent face angle settings: N or neutral, which sets up square, R or right, which opens the face 1.5 degrees and L or left, which closes the face 1.5 degrees.

Above: The Covert Tour (left) has Nike’s FlexLoft system, giving it 15 different possible loft and face angle settings. 

According to Nike Product Line Manager Tony Dabbs, the Covert Tour is about 300 to 400 rpm lower spinning, and about 0.75 degrees lower launching than the standard version for PGA Tour players. Neither model is going to be as low spinning as  Callaway’s X Hot  or  TaylorMade’s RBZ Stage 2  fairway woods, two of the longest fairway woods that we’ve tested, but Dabbs said that was by design.

“We have issues with a lot of our tour players hitting 3 wood too far,” Dabbs said. “They’re not looking for a 330-yard 3 wood.”

Dabbs said that the faces of the Covert fairway woods are just as hot as the leaders, but that the company decided to make this version of fairway woods with a little more spin and a higher launch to give golfers more playability and control.

Click here to watch a video on why Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods play the Performance model of the Nike Covert fairway woods.

For golfers with less swing speed, or those who have trouble hitting their fairway woods high enough, the standard head will make sense. It’s smaller, has a shallower face, and comes with a higher-launching, higher spinning shaft. Players who are looking to reduce spin will favor the Covert Tour, which is larger, has a deeper face, and has a shaft that will offer a more penetrating trajectory.

Golfers who fit in-between the heads will likely be more concerned with appearance and adjustability, which could play a bigger role than launch monitor numbers.

The FlexLoft system on the Covert Tour is a game changer for golfers who have struggled to get the correct loft and face angle combination in their fairway woods. In most models, lowering the loft means opening the face angle, while raising the loft means closing the face angle. The Covert Tour allows golfers to change the face angle independently of loft, meaning that regardless how the loft is set they can still get an opened, closed or neutral face angle at address.

Keep in mind that while the primary purpose of changing the face angle of a club is to influence the starting line of a shot (opened faces start the ball more right, closed faces start the ball more left), those adjustments will also influence dynamic loft — the actual loft of the part of the club that hits the ball at impact. For example, if a club has a more opened face angle, golfers will be forced to rotate the club more closed to square the club face at impact. This will reduce dynamic loft, resulting in a lower launch and lower spin. The opposite is true of closed face angles.

The nice thing about the Covert Tour fairway woods is that unless a golfer is at the upper or lower end of the loft range, he or she can bump the loft up or down to dial in the proper amount of launch and spin for their face angle setting.

Above: The Covert fairway woods at address. Notice the bigger hosel on the Tour model (right). 

The Covert Tour fairway wood is slightly bigger in every respect than the standard model. It starts with the FlexLoft hosel, which had to be made bigger than standard hosels to accomodate the dual-axis mechanism that makes independent loft and and lie adjustments possible. The face is also taller, which will add confidence when the ball is teed up. But it could scare lower swing speed players when they try to hit the club off the ground. It also has a higher-pitched, louder sound than the standard model, which feels a little harsher on mishits.

Both clubs have the same red crown Nike Swoosh logo, but the Tour model has a black finish on the face and the sole that we think makes it look more stealthy.

The Takeaway

The Covert fairway woods aren’t longest fairway woods on the market, but they’re certainly one of the most forgiving — especially the Performance model. Better golfers who want a new fairway wood they can play straight off the rack will enjoy the Covert Tour, which has a stout stock shaft option and enough adjustability to get most golfers the results they want.

Gearheads might be tempted to do what many tour players have done — experiment with heavier, low-spin shafts in in the Performance head. That could ultimately give them the best of both worlds, meaning they could end up with a club that allows them to hit high, low-spin bombs from the tee, fairway and light rough. Of course, the Performance head doesn’t have the face angle or loft adjustability that comes with the tour head, so they better like the way the club looks at address.

Great review. I’m killing the 3 wood tour. Off the deck or tee its going in the bag now. Sits perfect on the ground and Nike has done an excellent job with this years metal woods.

I never thought I’d own a Nike golf club. After I tried just about every 3 wood at my club this year, I liked the Nike Covert Tour the best. It might not be as long as the X-Hot or the Rocketballz but that can be attributed to the fact the shaft is an inch shorter.

I agree Sam. I went to Dicks saying I would never buy a Nike club. But after hitting all the drivers it came down to the nike and the rocketballz. I Choose Nike. I liked the adjust-ability which ultimately gave me straighter drives. The Nike is registered an average of 109 club speed and the rocketballz was 111-12 for me. Oh, and they finally fixed the sound of the nike club. Its very nice.

Jake Knapp discusses why he opts for a mini driver instead of a 3-wood

nike vr tour

The following is an excerpt from a piece we filed for PGATour.com’s Equipment Report. Head on over there for the full story , which also includes the Mexico Open winner discussing how he configures his PXG irons set up. 

Knapp may be a Tour rookie, but he’s experienced enough to know what works for him. And it’s not a 3-wood.

“I put in a 3-wood every once in a while, but I was just never able to find one that I loved,” Knapp told GolfWRX.com on Tuesday. “Three woods, in general, I just hit on the bottom of the face. They spin a lot and don’t go anywhere.”

Rather than using a fairway wood, Knapp goes with a TaylorMade BRNR Mini Driver that has 13.5 degrees of loft. The club complements his 9-degree Ping G425 LST driver.

nike vr tour

During a fitting session in Oklahoma last year, Knapp told his fitter he was looking for a club that goes 286 yards, and his first three shots with the mini driver went between 285 and 290.

“It’s just an easier club to hit than a 3-wood,” Knapp explained. “It spins more off the ground, but I don’t need it off the ground too often. And from 270+ yards away, you’re not really trying to be too precise. You’re just trying to get it up around the green most of the time. So, for me, it’s really just a tee club and kind of a fairway finder for me.”

  1. Nike VR Pro Tour Driver

    ULTIMATE REVIEW! - Nike VR Pro Tour Driver. "The numbers say the Nike VR Pro driver is impressively and deceptively long. All 6 of our testers produced A-Level performance scores . I'm inclined to label Nike the most underrated and under appreciated of the "Big 5" OEM's (TaylorMade, Callaway, Titleist, Ping, and Nike).

  2. Review: Nike VRS Covert 2.0 and 2.0 Tour Drivers

    The MOI of the Performance model swelled from 4600 to 4800, while the 2.0 Tour model's MOI jumped from 4100 to 4600, according to Nike. These enhancements help stabilize the Covert 2.0 drivers on off-center hits, leading to more ball speed and less gear effect when a golfer misses the sweet spot.

    ULTIMATE REVIEW! - Nike VR Pro Limited Driver. BY Tony Covey. Nov 1st 2011. Read all comments. 19. "Yes…it's true.

    The Nike VR Tour. It is the exact same club that the pros are playing.

  6. Nike VR STR8-FIT Tour driver

    The customisable head can be set up in 32 different positions to help vary shot shape and flight.

  7. Review: Nike Covert 2.0 Hybrids

    Pros: The crew at Nike took a fresh approach in designing the new VRS Covert 2.0 hybrids, making the lower-lofted clubs more forgiving and easier to launch than previously offered models. These new hybrids are long, accurate and versatile. If that isn't appealing enough, they're also easy on the eyes. Cons: The FlexLoft system, which allows golfers […]

  13. Nike VRS Covert 2.0 Driver Review

    The standard Covert 2.0 is low spin; for the average guy, it's going to be a beast. The Covert 2.0 Tour is you-better-bring-some-speed-or-it's-knuckleball-city low spin. I suspect that part of the reason for the Tour's low spin is the shaft, but, regardless of the reason, it's a club that high spin players must try this year.

    Nov 06, 2012. The Nike VR_S Covert Tour driver is the smaller headed brother of the VR_S Covert driver with a head that is 30cc smaller at 430cc. This is quite normal for a Tour driver and certainly if you like this style of driver then the Covert will be in your ball park.

  18. Nike VR Pro Limited Edition Driver

    The Nike VR Pro LE tweaks a few designs of the VR Tour and creates a much easier to hit driver, yet still offering the same amazing results as the VR Tour. The main changes are a new forged face, only 1* open, revamped sole plate and a new ahina made for shaft.

  19. Nike VR Pro Hybrid

    When I think Nike Golf I think Nike Tour. Obviously, I am not including Tiger, Kim, and Cink, but until the VR line came out in 2009 (irons only) most of the major players used "Prototype" equipment. When compared to Titleist or some of the others like the Callaway tour and pro lines, Nike had large offsets, and generally looked funky.

    Pros: Thanks to their radical cavity back design (a.k.a. the large chunk missing from the rear portion of the sole), the Nike Covert and Covert Tour drivers less spin and are more forgiving than previous models.Surprisingly, they also have a very pleasing sound. Their adjustable hosel system, Flex Loft, is also one of the widest ranging and most intuitive in the industry.
