Hey, to each their own. I have just never liked Nike equipment all that much, and the Covert driver was possibly the worst driver I ever hit. I had a good buddy that was the Nike Golf rep for our area and I still wouldn't play their stuff. But I am all for sticking with what works regardless of what anyone else says so good luck.

I found Nike's vapor drivers actually surprisingly good. I played one this summer when I had to rent clubs once. It performed pretty darn well. Not as great as my normal Callaway driver, but pretty close. I wasn't really expecting to like that club (at all, really).

Lots of new stuff the past month, new bag, new irons, new wedges, new putter. Funny story with the putter, it's not mine. Buddy lent it to me in Scottsdale when I couldn't get my bags out of airport security. Putted well with it that day and he said I could keep it 😎 Had some great putting rounds with it since.

Using the new i210 irons for a couple weeks. Five rounds in, five rounds under par. Was due for some new wedges (was using standard sole Glide 2.0 wedges) so experimenting with the Glide 2.0 wide sole 54 and 58. Went to stronger lofts with the wedges since the i210's go about a half club farther.

Love the i210 U-wedge, exactly the kind of club I was looking for.

For what it's worth, I have a Nike driver, irons, and putter, and I'm pretty happy with them all.

Here’s my anachronistic bag. Fairly modern in the woods, hybrids and wedges, but antique irons and putter.

 

Driver- Callaway Big Bertha Alpha

3W-Titleist 913F 15°

3H-Callaway X2Hot 19°

Irons- Wilson Staff FG-17, 3-9 iron (Soon to be joined by PW)

SW-Vokey 54°

LW-Cleveland RTX 2.0 60°

Putter-Wilson Staff 8813

 

I swap the iron sometimes with a set of 1988 Wilson Staff Goosenecks that are in basically pristine condition. The chrome is beautiful and I hit them fairly well, but they don’t have the same sweet feel as the FG-17s, so these are my primary set.

Here's my bag. Lots of Callaway, PING Driver and Hybrid, Cobra Wedges and Never Compromise Putter. Don't have any issues with the clubs, still working on my swing (playing for less than 1 year). Have been practicing every week and really loving this sport.

Driver 3W taylormade R580

Hybrid taylormade 3h 19*

irons taylormade t300 3-PW

wedges cleveland rtx-3 (52,56,60)

putter ping remedy 34” 

couldn’t be happier with my set, except my putter it’s a little too light for me but will do until I start playing below 85 consistently.

I did a little horse trading this week and wound up with a Taylormade M2 3H Rescue to mate up with my 4H. Time to update my bag notes/signature and post a photo when i get some time.

(Two WITB threads so I’d better post a pic in this one)

Clubs in winter storage mode. Still sorting things out and deciding which wedges to use. The {#} brackets are just my mental note to decide and track what is in the bag and what is in reserve and what is on the way out. TM = Taylormade for when I didn’t spell it out.

I’m sort of undecided on the Vokeys and I haven’t tried the ATV’s yet. And I also have no realistic idea how far I hit any of these clubs since they are all new to me for the most part over the last several years and due to many reasons I haven’t had the time to work with them yet. All part of my 2019 Goals posted in the goals thread.
