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.

    • 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.
