Nike Covert Series

15 posts in this topic

I am thinking about getting the Nike Covert irons, driver, and a hybrid.  I was curious to see if anyone has played them this year (especially the irons) and can give me any feedback.  I am also curious to know if there if a difference between the "performance"  driver (white face) and the "tour" (black face) drivers.

Thanks!

I can't answer the iron question.  But I can answer the driver question.

The Tour is a smaller head club and comes with a Kuro Kage Black instead of the regular which is a Kuro Kage Silver with a 460 head. I have the regular and really like the club.  I had a Cleveland DST and Callaway FTiQ prior to this and this club is lower spinning than both, and the adjustable loft gives me the ability to dial in the ball flight height.

The net result is that with the Nike set to 10.5 degrees and in the closed position, I carry the drives as long as the Cleveland, which was a 1" longer club.  Because the Nike is shorter I hit the center of the face that much more often.

Have you been able to swing any clubs yet?

I was able to swing both the VRS and this year's COVERT 6i yesterday.  Despite the rave reviews on both I didn't care much for the feel at impact.  Something just didn't feel right.

Then I decided to try the AP1 6i... swooooooonnn   But I'm happy with my pro cavities for now

Im in love with the Covert line.  Even if the technology really doesnt do anything special, it just looks so cool!

Funny this popped up, I was just looking for a forum on this!

I've just bought the Covert VR_s driver after testing 6-7 clubs and can tell you it's absolutely transformed my driving! I took it out for the first time last night and literally (apart from 1), missiled it down the fairway.

It's been a weak point of my game for a while and I'm really pleased that I can replicate the form on the course that I had in the testing session. Especially happy as I've got my first club competition on sunday.

Ultimately it depends on what driver you using at the moment as to the difference you'll see. I was using an old Yonex V-Mass with a 9 Degree loft, which was passed on to me and picked up the 10.5 degree VR_s (non-tour). I would highly recommend it and it also installs confidence with it's fantastic looks at address.

The covert dropped the spin rate for me a lot. I also hit this a lot better over my old 910 and when I tested the 913. Same for the 3 wood. The covert hybrid is my first hybrid so I can't really compare it to anything.

Ive been watching them on Ebay and it seems like they are going for about $150 new right now.  I may pick one up this winter if the price is right.

Thanks for the info.  With the prices dropping on the entire line it makes them more tempting.  I just didn't want to go out and spend a ton of money on hype.

Try Global Golf or Callaway preowned.  Global Golf is an authorized dealer and does have a great selection of new and used clubs.  You might save some bucks and get a mint condition driver in the specs you're looking for.

    • For those who don't show clubs in your sig line. I currently carry: 1-3-5 "woods" 2-SW (mid 90's loft angles, unlike stronger modern lofts) Putter I probably don't need the 5W, and I'd like to try a hybrid or two. Some day...  
    • Ok thanks. I feel like I am stuck right between reg and stiff. Hard to tell though as the last time I hit stiff flex in my irons my ball striking wasn't as good or as consistent. I play stiff flex in my driver, 3 wood and hybrids but that's mainly for consistency. I've always had a high ball flight since I started playing golf but lately it's become ridiculously high. Do you guys think moving over to stiff flex would help with lowering the ball flight.

      http://www.gamegolf.com/player/roamin/round/1613273 Beautiful (and hot!) Florida sunshine, four rounds of golf, and $20 buck on skins. Great weekend! Highlights were, first and foremost, the 39 on the front nine this morning (a personal best), and the amazing par, birdie, par finish to the day.
    • Four rounds this weekend, two on Saturday and two on Monday. Shot 89, 90, 84, 91. Today was skins day and luckily, my highlight round came this morning. The front nine was just awesome, shot 39 with six pars and three bogeys. Then got stupid on the 10th after the first bad drive of the day and hit a tree, twice (well, different trees ), and made triple. Three more pars and nothing worse than a single after that, to finish with an 84. Fifty cent skins, plus extra skins for birdies, and low score on front, back, and overall for each round. I was up by 20 skins on the 18th in the second round when we went double or nothing.   I hit my longest drive of the day, at 274 yards, with a perfect angle left to the par 5 green. Then hit a perfect 3W and ended up 6 feet off the front-left edge of the green. Thinned the pitch-shot a little and it rolled about ~15 feet passed the hole...two-putt for par. My buddy had hit a tree with his 3W (bad angle off the tee), and finished with a double. $20 bucks! Cha-ching! What a great weekend! 
    • Austin had a great swing but other than the "macro" moves I don't see many similarities to DJ. - Austin had a slightly weak or neutral grip, DJ uses a strong one
      - Austin raised his left heel on the backswing 
      - DJ has a much more flexed lead wrist on the backswing and downswing
      - Austin goes into right pelvic tilt and with more axis tilt on the downswing where DJ maintains left pelvic tilt longer
      - DJ is more rotational while Austin had more "leg drive".
