Nike Covert Driver

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

We had the new driver at our club today all I can say is wait until you try it fast of the face and long and the colour looks great don't even notice the swoosh

 

 

 

middle is my old driver

 

top is set at 8.5 n

bottom 8.5r

stiff flex 50gram shaft ordered mine

What was the weight of your old driver? It looks like you are getting slightly better contact numbers but also another 3 or so miles of clubhead speed. I am wondering if that is aerodynamics or just a ligher club?

the covert just feels very nice and the shaft and head seem to work very well had a good hour with it

What is your driver swing speed it doesn't show on you monitor results ?
Did you find the stock 50g shaft stable enough and not whippy from the 60g one in your old driver ?

Did you try the tour head with the silver shaft at all ?

All other things being equal, a lighter shaft should produce a higher launch angle, but you're seeing the opposite result.  That tells me that something about the flex point/effective loft combo of your old driver wasn't an ideal setup for you, but that doesn't say anything about the inherent superiority of the Covert driver.

 

Also, the numbers on that machine can't be completely accurate.  Tour professionals have an average smash factor of between 1.48 and1.49.  

 

At the end of the day, though, the precise accuracy of the numbers is irrelevant.  If the numbers are "better" then it's a positive change.

Club speed = ball speed divided by smash factor I believe.  Though I thought 1.5 was nearly impossible to get.
