Have you seen the Nike Covert 2.0 clubs? Wow!

56 posts in this topic

With the recent launch of the Nike Covert 2.0 golf clubs, I was wondering what everyone's thoughts were? Like them? Hate them? Blah? We had the chance to see them the other day and they are actually really good. I think know is a buyers market in the golf world, and it's worth it to "test drive" the clubs.  These are no exception, let the performance speak for itself. They stack up nicely!! Anyways, just wondering if anyone has had a chance to see them or read about them.

According to golfweek.com, the Nike's will be available at retail Jan. 31, 2014. (http://golfweek.com/news/2013/nov/21/nike-golf-vrs-covert-2-golf-clubs-equipment/)

I had a chance to rent Coverts last year at Ka'anapali. I thought they performed pretty well, but would not trade them for my current set of clubs.

I'll be curious to hit them. So far, I've been very underwhelmed by everything Nike has produced, but I think the Coverts were a step in the right direction.

Thanks for posting.

I saw the Mark Crossfield review on YouTube...love the look of the added white to the cavity. He gives accurate reviews IMO, and said that it's not much different other than a few cosmetic tweaks. I think I will keep my Covert (1.0) for now, still loving it.

I currently use the Covert driver and 3-4 hybrids and love them. I'll be picking up a 3 wood and 5 wood when these 2.0s come out.

I'll give them a hit, but I don't expect a huge performance difference to buy it. I'll probably stay with the current Covert I have now.

I just don't see the attraction of them that others may have. The covert 1.0 is now hundred twenty five bucks, less than a year old, almost 1/3 the price!. I had my own opinion when it was first introduced and now I see my suspicion was correct. No thanks Nike, I don't care who you are paying to play them, I want no part of that.

I think I may have taken a swing or 2 with the Covert 1.0 early las year. Never really appealed to me I guess. Maybe next time I am out a golf store I will try both

Im a Nike guy and I wont go near those. Like a poster above stated the first Covert can be had for just over $100. Besides my VRS is still treating me very well. I will take a look at the toe sweep wedges though.

Not even if you wrapped them in bacon and threw in a free stripper.

I'm gonna stick with Nike still, but I'm not looking to getting anything new.

If I do decide to change my bag set up, then I'll get a 4 hybrid, 5-wood and probably a new 56 degree wedge...old one is kinda wearing thing a bit.

People will for opinions based on looks, but none are valid until actually tried. Great line of clubs.

I don't usually get riled up ... but I'm a Nike fanboi - I've got a Nike bag, nike driver, nike 3 wood and nike hybrid.    I can not stand their cavity backed woods - I've never seen such a total gimick - shocked they carried that concept over for a 2nd year.    Should have just stopped the bleeding and chocked it up to failed marketing concept.     To go that far outside the norm of what a golfer expects to see in his bag has to offput a huge amount of traditionally minded golfers.   Red was bad enough, the cavity backed woods are REDICULOUS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After buying new irons, and clearance hybrids and woods last year.  I think clearance will be my strategy from now on.  The changes made year to year are minor.  As long as I can get clubs fit, last year or two years ago models seem to be great deals from any vendor.  One of my best clubs is my 2 hybrid (2 year old model, now 3).  I bought it for $39 still in the wrapper.  Today's version of that when it comes out would run what?  $100 or more?  (heck, no one should pay suggested retail, but it's $229)

We actually have them available now for pre-sale. But the release day for store is Jan. 31. I've attached an image of the updated Covert 2.0 tour. It looks like you have some pics of last years Covert. I've got more is anyone wants to see the line-up.

    • Placed a coaster on the carpet, and hit putts from five feet away until I hit the coaster 50 times. The few times I missed were to the right.
    • That's awesome - good stuff!  You must have been doing a little "scoreboard-checking" after that 30...no matter how hard you tried not to!
    • Tough practice session today.  It's hot out there (even at 8pm), and I'm tired from 36 holes of golf this weekend in 90-degree heat...and probably about 36 beers (not while golfing, but still). I'm sticking with the same practice template.  First half of the session focuses on backswing and downswing path; second half focuses on clubface control.  Every swing is on video and reviewed. I was a bad "stupid monkey" for about 5 swings at the beginning...I was thinking about the "short-arm" stuff above, and trying to work on it.  Based on the slow-mo video, I was actually able to get one REALLY good inline impact with the 6-iron by DRIVING my hands forward...but I made terribly fat contact.  After that swing I made myself stop and put it completely out of my head.  I didn't even take any more face-on video.  F-O-C-U-S is key right now. After that brief distraction, my swing path and backswing work went OK...I was getting a bit lazy on the backswing and not completing my turn on some swings, but I'm doing better at hitting my downswing positions.  Contact and ball flight with the irons is really good right now (relative to my skill level).  I was hitting mostly my "on-course" pushes, moving towards push-fades with the longer clubs, but with overall very solid contact and height.     I think my A4 is pretty good on this swing...full shoulder turn and good hip turn (not sure about hand/arm position, but that's not part of what I'm working on right now):   Club is in-line with the hands at A6 (that's good):   Impact (not checking anything here yet, but including for completeness).  I can tell I'm still "short-arming" it at impact, but I'm not worried about that yet:   Game Golf tag basically visible at A8 (that's good):   I'm also finally hitting my target positions with my driver, which represents progress.  Contact was pretty bad tonight (quite a few heel and toe strikes), so I just slowed it down to 75% with the driver and focused on path.  Hit some decent 200-yard baby-fades with that swing (also a bunch of my "on-course" pushes).   A4 here felt a bit abbreviated, but it looks OK on the video (feel was probably because it was not a full-speed swing):   Club is in-line with the hands at A6 (took me a damn month to be able to do this with the driver, but...it's getting more and more consistent):   Impact for completeness:   Good A8 here for the driver (again, I say "really good" only in terms of the swing path I've been working towards):   Overall, I think it was a good night of work on swing path, considering how I was feeling.   As for the clubface control drill: I really need to find a way to put something downrange (or start going to a different range to work on that piece).  Without a visual reference, the open/closed clubface positions are way too exaggerated.  I'm probably still working on the skill (the "twist"), but not as productively as I could be.  This might be the piece that prompts me to buy a small net for the backyard.   Summary / Next Steps I'm hoping to get one more practice session in this week before my trip to work with @iacas on Saturday.  Based on my slow progress to date, unless that session is some sort of cosmic breakthrough, I don't think I'm going to be ready to add any more drills or pieces to work on yet.  If I tried to add another swing thought on either the backswing or downswing, I'm pretty sure it'd mess up one of my current priorities.  Especially since I've only cracked the surface of the clubface control drill. We'll see.  I suppose if I were to focus on getting into a better position at A4, I could work that into the backswing drills I've been doing...or something similar.  
    • Definitely.  Possibly even slightly simpler with a chipper because it's already designed for that, likely more upright than a 9 iron etc. :)
