Nike VR Driver vs.R9 Supertri?

16 posts in this topic

I have been looking at both the Nike VR and the R9 Supertri and wanted to see which you guys thought would be the best. The prices are the same but it seems reasonable to get the Supertri because of MWT and FCT technology, which gives you 24 different flight options, but the VR has Str8-Fit, which is very similar.,

I'd be sure to hit both. I didn't care for the feel or look of the R9 supertri when I hit it, but would be curious to hit the VR after reading some very positive reviews. What is your ballflight, and what shaft characteristics are you after?

I have medium trajectory ballflight and i use a Ust Proforce V2 LD Wood shaft.

Yep... I try and not hit clubs I can't afford. It's easier to sleep that way.

Only reason why i tried it cause a buddy of mine was hitting it beside me at the range.
Its a very nice driver, both are actually, i forgot i hit the r9 when i was getting a lesson.
I like the both..... but i like any driver with a shorter shaft more than my driver

Tied that r9, hated it. Got fitted at a demo night and they fitted me for a 7.5 Open Fubiki shaft and hated it!!!! I would sugest the Nike VR tour driver, I like that alot more then the regular one. The VR tour has a smaller club head. But out of those 2, I would say the VR. But try and hit both before you make a choice.

VR is meant to have a very small head on it.

Have you hit the club? be honest....

That doesn't really mean much. I've tried the VR and it's very forgiving, at least more forgiving than my Titleist 909 D2.

I haven't tried the Supertri but I don't really like the feel of TaylorMade clubs so I would pick the VR without any doubts.

I like the SuperTri better, but that's just my opinion.

Havent hit the SuperTri yet, but I did hit the VR and really liked it. I'm finding myself gravitating towards drivers that dont have obnoxiously huge oversized heads (or dont appear to at least). My current driver head is like that, seems very low profile - and that's what I loved about the new VR driver. The head has a shape that is pleasing to the eye and looks more classic than some other drivers out there nowadays. The feel of the club itself was very nice. I found that the stiff shaft probably felt a bit stiffer than the stiff shaft in my current driver...and the sound off the face is great, not an obnoxious aluminum bat-type PINNNGGGGG that you got from some of the past Nike drivers. TaylorMade is great too (currently playing one of their drivers) but I was not a huge fan of this year's R9s when I hit them. Nike has a winner here i think.

It doesnt have a giant head but the sweet spot i find is almost the entire face which is better than a enormous head

I love the feel of the VR driver. I hated the R9. The vr head felt great but i did not like the stock shaft. So i am getting a custom order one from my uncle. I would get one even if i didnt have that option.

From what I've been reading, you may want to try hitting the Mizuno MP630 Fast Track as well. Looks to be getting better reviews that any other Mizuno driver I've seen.

    • Where is the hole in your game?  Do you struggle close to the green?  Then look at lob wedge.  If you find yourself always needing a 200 yard club then go for a wood or driving iron. I would suggest since you already mentioned you don't hit your hybrid so well replacing it as well.  I don't hit hybrids myself, but there are many different types of hybrids from fat sole driving irons to short shaft woods.  A true hybrid will go a lot farther than an iron of the same loft making a 5 hybrid get into you 3 iron range.  If you go this route I would suggest a 2 and 4 hybrid to cover the gap between driver and irons. My personal preference is toward big fairway woods.  Most people will carry at least a 3 wood.  Lots of pros are using a strong 3 wood, whether it is called a 2 wood, 3+, or mini driver, these guys are using 11 to 14 degree woods with lots of club head speed to get 300 yards out of their fairway wood.  But with slower swings that most amateurs have they should be using a 12 to 14 degree driver meaning they should be using more loft on their fairway wood as well.  To go this route you might want to look at a 4 wood and 7 wood setup.  A 7 wood should be around the same yardage as a 3 hybrid. One last suggestion.  Find a 2nd hand store and look at some older model clubs.  You might just run across a 1 iron for less than $10.  For that price you could grab a hand full of long irons, hybrids, and woods that you can then hit the driving range and find what works for you.  
    • So IMO, if there are easier options to hit that can produce similar results, why play blades?  I had a set of Titleist 710 Cavity Backs and sold them for blades. Simply because they looked cool, and "all good golfers play blades". Well, I wasnt as good a ball striker that I thought I was. I now play AP2's and my handicap is as low as its ever been. For guys like Jordan Spieth and Luke Donald in your example, if they hit it pure most of the time, why risk that 1% where you dont pure it and the blade iron leaves you 15 yards short of your target and in a creek/hazard.  The technology in irons today is incredible for hitting high shots while still being able to work the ball plenty. Im not knocking anyone who plays blades, because that is impressive. It all comes down to preference.

    • Exactly, it comes up a lot in some of those "senior" golf tip sections on TV and in Magazines. We don't have those twist-o-flex spines anymore like we did in our 20's, so a little head start helps. But I think ANYONE can use it to help rotation. We may THINK we get around a lot, but sadly if you saw yourself on video... not so much. Then I wouldn't do it with the long irons. :^)  But seriously, folks... I run into this as well and it's my hands... I will tend to flip and steer the club trying to get the perfect ball flight. Hands get ahead and it's pulled or hooked. REALLY trying to keep my head behind the ball and WATCH the club hit the ball helps a bit, though. Good Luck.
