Nike Covert Driver

4 posts in this topic

After about two trips to the range this driver is the best I've every hit !!!! I've always teed my driver shots close and kept topping the ball. Tried teeing it very high and wow ! Right down the middle with about 20 to 30 yards better. My draw and fade are great with this club. Tempo and teeing it high were the keys for me. This is the first new club I bought in awhile, but it was well worth it. I adjusted it to 9.5 degree and neutral. Love it.

I bought this driver last year because my good drives were good but my misses were so much better than my old misses. I love that club and just recently upgraded the shaft to a Black tie 7M3! What a great shaft!

I completely agree.  Some people have a bias against playing Nike clubs for some reason, but their woods and putters are second to none.  I've bought and  sold a few drivers over the years (Titleist 909, Nike VR Pro) when I was looking to "upgrade" from my old Nike SQ 5000, but I hadn't found anything I liked more than the SQ until the Covert came out.

I hit the tour version and hated it, but the standard/performance is a great club.  I'm using the stock Kuro Kage stiff shaft in the neutral setting and upped the loft from my usual 10.5 to 11.5.  I haven't tried all the newest 2014 clubs yet, but the Covert is more forgiving, longer and straighter than any driver I've hit recently.

And not to mention that fact that it's very affordable.  I'm not one to spend $300 on a driver.

    • A run of the mill slice is something I can actually live with (though it'll be an annoying existence).  A push slice is probably the most off line I ever get with a shot (even more than a shank due to distance) as it starts right and goes further right.  Luckily those are so rare that when they do pop up they usually aren't in a spot where it causes me trouble.
    • The point that I was specifically responding to was, just because you're on top of another group, it still may be appropriate to allow others through.  Just because @No Mulligans hadn't experienced it, didn't mean that the concept was moot by any means... And fwiw, our relatively fast group has allowed 5-somes through....
    • These guys haven't gotten to where they are without being ultra-competitive.  I don't think the lack of money had any real effect on their desire to win.
    • The slice is just such a devastating miss for your game. It is a shot that I really have to eliminate from my game. I am an incredibly inconsistent player, to the point where I can be hitting a beautiful high fade and start to go pin hunting for several holes, having several looks at birdie in a row and then within the next several holes be almost unable to hit the ball without hitting a horrendous slice. I am so inconsistent that it is not abnormal for me to go something like par, birdie, par, birdie, par, quad, quad, quad in an eight hole stretch.
    • I recently won some pro shop credit ($100) at a semi-private course nearby.  Thing is, I need to use it before November or it expires. I don't really need any clothes or accessories so I was thinking I might put it towards a new driver.  The problem is, while I'm sure I can test it out on the range, they just have regular old range balls and I'm doubtful there's any kind of fitting process.  I also can't really play a round there with a demo club unless I'm someone's guest or I'm willing to shell out $100+ to play off-peak times (which I'm not).  There's a decent golf shop down the road from the course that offers fittings for $75/hour, with a $50 credit toward a related purchase within 30 days.  I've never had a proper fitting, so would it make sense to go to the golf shop, get fit, assume I'll probably get a custom shaft, go buy the same driver at the pro shop using my credit, and then buy the shaft from the golf store, applying the fitting credit?  When you get fit and end up with a custom shaft, is the shaft price usually totally on top of the full price of the off-the-rack driver, or is there typically a discount since you're not getting the OEM shaft? Obviously different stores do things differently, but I'm just wondering what is common practice. I'm trying not to overthink it but I also don't want to waste my pro shop credit. Any advice would be much appreciated!
