Today Nike Golf released information “officially” on new products in golf clubs, golf balls, footwear and apparel for 2014.

According to Nike’s press release: Cavity Back technology in golf clubs; Speedlock RZN Core technology in golf balls; Lunar technology in footwear; and Mobility Enhanced technologies in apparel.

“For us, innovation and design is at the epicenter of everything we do,” said Cindy Davis, President of Nike Golf. “We obsess every detail. Is it fast enough? Is it light enough? Does it feel right? Sound right? Does it meet the eye? Does it move with the body? We challenge everything. We think something nobody else thinks. We build something nobody else builds. We improve something that no one else thinks needs improving. If it’s good enough, then we must make it better.”

VRS Covert 2.0 Drivers:

According to Nike’s press release: An enhanced cavity back design with new Fly-Brace technology delivers increased energy transfer at impact for more ball speed and forgiving distance.  The new VRS Covert 2.0 drivers deliver more forgiving distance, faster ball speed and simple, intuitive customization to meet the swing needs of every athlete. High-Speed Cavity Back technology redistributes weight to the heel and toe allowing for increased distance and more stability across the face of the driver. See the original photos of this driver we spotted out on tour.

“We re-engineered the VRS Covert 2.0 with enhancements to our High Speed Cavity Back technology that allow athletes to experience more forgiving distance than ever before,” says Nate Radcliffe, Nike Golf Director of Engineering. “The new VRS Covert 2.0 driver features a redesigned cavity with Fly-Brace technology that ties the sole to the crown. By stiffening the rear portion of the club, more energy is transferred to the face at impact. The end result is even greater ball speed and up to six yards of distance gain over last year’s model.”

The VRS Covert 2.0 drivers feature two additional proprietary technologies: A larger, re-engineered NexCOR face for increased ball speed and distance, and FlexLoft adjustability, which allows athletes to easily customize loft and face angle positions for 15 drivers in one.

The redesigned NexCOR face incorporates variable face thickness for a faster, hotter face and as a result, more speed at impact. It is 15-percent larger in the VRS Covert 2.0 Tour driver and seven-percent larger in the VRS Covert 2.0 driver.

Nike Golf’s patented FlexLoft system offers the same, intuitive adjustability system featured in the VRS Covert driver. Athletes can adjust lofts from 8.5 to 12.5 degrees while independently modifying for three different face angle positions to optimize launch and spin conditions for maximized distance and accuracy.

The second generation of Mitsubishi Rayon’s Kuro Kage shafts are the standard graphite option for both models. In the VRS Covert 2.0 Tour, the Kuro Kage Silver 60 graphite, featuring Titanium Nickel fiber in the tip section, creates more stability and lower spin. The VRS Covert 2.0 utilizes the Kuro Kage Black HBP Graphite 50 shaft with a higher balance point, allowing for higher swing speeds without adding shaft length.

Both drivers will be available for pre-order on Nike.com on Jan. 6, 2013. The VRS Covert 2.0 Tour driver and VRS Covert 2.0 driver will be available on Nike.com  and at select retailers on Jan. 31, 2014 for a suggested retail price of $399 and $299, respectively.

VRS Covert 2.0 Fairway Woods:

6

Per Nike’s Press Release: Coupled with High Speed Cavity Back technology for longer and straighter shots, a lower center of gravity promotes a higher launch with reduced spin, which produces an average of eight yards in additional distance compared to last year’s model.

Nike Golf re-engineered the Fly-Brace design within the cavity back of the VRS Covert 2.0 fairway woods similar to that of the VRS Covert 2.0 driver, re-distributing material from the center of the club toward the heel and toe for increased stability. The Fly-Brace technology stiffens the chassis to focus flexing toward the variable thickness NexCOR face. The result is a faster, hotter face with higher ball speed.

VRS Covert 2.0 Hybrids:

9

According to Nike’s press release: Nike Golf engineers tapped into their “Linear Transition Design” methodology to create a new line of hybrids with progressively smaller head designs while increasing face height on each model.

Tapping into what the engineers at The Oven call “Linear Transition Design,” the club team crafted the VRS Covert 2.0 hybrids with progressively smaller head sizes as loft increases, while increasing the face height on each model. The #2 and #3 hybrids, with larger heads, perform more like fairway woods to advance the ball, while the #4 and #5 hybrids are designed for approach shots toward the green.

10

Photos above are the Nike Covert 2.0 (left) and the Covert 2.0 Tour (right)

Both the VRS Covert 2.0 Tour and VRS Covert 2.0 hybrids feature a Fly-Brace reinforced High-Speed Cavity back design for longer and straighter shots. The cavity back design improves the moment of inertia, helps to stiffen the back of the golf club and improve the energy transfer across the club face.

“With the new VRS Covert 2.0 hybrids, the longer the shot, the more forgiving the club,” says Tony Dabbs, Nike Golf Global Product Director, Golf Clubs. “When we looked at it, we realized it makes more sense, especially with a #2 and #3 hybrid, to produce ball flight that is more similar to a fairway wood. As the line progresses, the heads get smaller, and the #4 and #5 hybrids are designed to hit the green with a little higher trajectory and more shot-making precision.”

In addition to the VRS Covert 2.0 hybrids, the VRS Covert 2.0 Tour hybrids feature Nike’s patented FlexLoft technology, a simple pull, turn, push-and-tighten adjustment system that allows golfers to choose their loft and face angle independently of each other, providing more range and versatility in the bag. NexCOR face technology, which incorporates variable face thickness for a faster, hotter face, results in more speed at impact.

11

The second generation of Mitsubishi Rayon’s Kuro Kage graphite shafts are the standard graphite shaft option for both models. In the VRS Covert 2.0 Tour, the Kuro Kage Silver 80 graphite shaft creates more stability and lower spin. The VRS Covert 2.0 hybrids utilize the Kuro Kage Black HBP Graphite 70 shaft, featuring a higher balance point to allow for higher swing speeds without adding shaft length.

The VRS Covert 2.0 and VR Covert 2.0 Tour hybrids will be available January 31, 2014 for a suggested retail price of $179 and $229, respectively.

VRS Covert 2.0 Tour Hybrids Specifications: 3H: 17°-21° (RH/LH), 5H: 21°-25° (RH/LH)

VR X3X Toe Sweep Wedges:

VR_X3X_Wedge_Family_BEAUTY_CMYK_original

According to Nike’s press release: With a wider sole area toward the toe and improved Nike X3X groove technology, the VR X3X Toe Sweep wedges deliver a more consistent shot in any condition, providingbetter ball flight and stopping power on the green.

Over the course of five years, the Nike Golf team prototyped, analyzed and tested a range of functional sole configurations before landing on an innovative design that makes it significantly easier to hit out of the toughest lies from anywhere around the green. A wider sole area toward the toe and a relieved heel ensure versatility around the greens and make it easier for golfers to hit out of the bunker. Improved X3X groove technology delivers a more consistent shot in any condition, better ball flight and superior stopping power on the green.

“We built the VR X3X Toe Sweep wedges from the ground up,” said Mike Taylor, Nike Golf Master Modelmaker. “Our Tour athletes have told us that the toe side of the sole is most critical in bunker performance. In a bunker shot, these new wedges are carefully crafted to provide bounce relative to the path of the club head. Around the green, our athletes ask for material to be ground away from the heel to aid open-face versatility–and we’ve done that with this new design.”

The toe-sweep sole is an innovative combination that blends the best attributes of several of Nike’s most functional grinds. The VR X3X Toe Sweep wedges perform like a wide sole from the bunker, but slide through the tightest lies around the green with ease.

12

Included in the VR X3X line are the Tour-validated Dual Wide sole wedges, which have a wide “c-shaped” grind with heel and toe relief, making it extremely easy to launch the ball high with maximum spin.

Nike’s X3X groove technology features grooves that are closer together and deeper on the clubface. Nike Golf engineers added width to the shape of the existing X3X grooves to create a new X3X 27 groove design for the VR X3X line of wedges. The enhanced design improves spin consistency for more precision when approaching the green.

Both VR X3X wedges feature a satin chrome finish, Dynamic Gold Wedge shafts and Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grips.

The Nike VR X3X wedges will be available on Jan. 31, 2014 for a suggested retail price of $109.

VRS Covert Forged Irons:

13

According to Nike’s press release: Nike Golf engineers incorporated a NexCOR face, Nike’s proprietary technology that delivers faster ball speed and more distance, and a high-speed cavity back design with a lower, deeper center of gravity for longer and straighter shots.

Built with metal wood distance in mind, Nike Golf’s new VRS Covert Forged irons provide high-speed performance in a premium design. Nike Golf engineers incorporated a NexCOR face, Nike’s proprietary variable face thickness technology that delivers faster ball speed for greater distance. The new irons also feature a high-speed cavity back design with a lower, deeper center of gravity for longer and straighter shots.

“We focused on improving distance and off-center hit performance with the VRS Covert Forged irons,” said Chris Savage, Nike Golf Irons Innovation Engineer. “It’s the first time we designed a forged iron with a high-speed NexCOR face, and engineering the variable thickness really amplifies the trampoline effect off the face. We further enhanced the performance with balanced perimeter weighting via a deep, engineered cavity back design.  In our testing, the VRS Covert Forged irons delivered up to seven additional yards in distance compared to last year’s product.”

“Our research shows that more than 80 percent of player impact is between the center and the toe side of an iron,” Savage adds. “So another key focus on this product was to shift the center of gravity to the center of the face. By moving the true sweet spot to the area where most people hit the ball, we enhanced the iron’s feel and improved off center performance by as much as 17 percent.”

cavityaddress

Nike’s X3X groove technology features grooves that are closer together and deeper on the clubface. Nike Golf engineers added width to the shape of the existing high-frequency X3X grooves to maximize spin and maintain ball flight, resulting in a 50-percent decrease in long iron dispersion from difficult lies.

The Nike VRS Covert Forged irons will be available on Jan. 31, 2014 for a suggested retail price of $1,099.

According to Nike’s press release: This new technology features an interlocking core design – the core’s surface is similar to that of a waffle iron – that interconnects with the compression layer to form a tighter bond. Speedlock Technology helps to harness more energy between layers for faster ball speed, longer distance and more stability into the wind.

According to Nike’s press release: Venom Green, Military Blue and Challenge Red pop against white and black premium full-grain leather uppers and highlight Nike’s proprietary full-length Lunarlon technology, a lightweight cushioning system that is highly responsive, resulting in a unique combination of comfort and support.

Nike Golf Athletes sport the Nike Lunar Control on Tour more than any other shoe because it offers the control and lightweight cushioning they need round after round – and now they have an expressive range of bold and confident colors to choose from beginning Jan. 1, 2014.

“The shoe is designed to be in contact with the ground as much as possible and that enables me to push off the ground with more control,” said Casey. “For me, it’s always incredible how Nike creates great shoes, and then improves on them in the next generation.”

Vibrant colors such as Venom Green, Military Blue and Challenge Red pop against white and black premium full-grain leather uppers and highlight Nike’s proprietary full-length Lunarlon technology, a lightweight cushioning system that is highly responsive, resulting in a unique combination of comfort and support.

“Our Tour athletes are on their feet all day, every day – they know what they need out of a golf shoe to perform at their best,” said Lee Walker, Nike Golf Global Footwear Marketing Director. “We relied heavily on their insights to create a shoe that provides optimal control and comfort in a range of confident colors.”

In addition to Lunarlon foam cushioning, the Nike Lunar Control also features Nike Flywire, another proprietary technology, which wraps from the midfoot to the heel for targeted support and lightweight structure.

Underfoot, Nike Power Platform stabilizes the foot to provide better balance, smoother weight transfer and more control at impact. Power Transfer Zone technology works in conjunction with the Power Platform to allow for constant ground contact and a smooth transfer of power throughout the swing.

The new colorways of the Nike Lunar Control will be available in Black/Reflect Silver-Light Crimson on December 1, 2013 and White/Team Red-Challenge Red; White/Black-Venom Green; and White/Military Blue-Venom Green on Jan. 1, 2014 for a suggested retail price of $160.

Nike Lunar Clayton:

Nike lunar clayton 2014

According to Nike’s press release: Nike Golf footwear designers combined a handcrafted, waterproof leather upper with lightweight Nike Lunarlon technology in the outsole for maximum responsive cushioning to create a versatile shoe for both on and off the course. A leather welt joins the upper to the outsole while protecting from the elements.

Nike Golf Footwear Product Line Manager Ryan Bucci was first inspired more than 5,000 miles from Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Ore., while window-shopping in Florence, Italy.

“Handmade, Italian leather shoes are the essence of premium footwear,” said Bucci. “We saw that there was an opening in the marketplace for a high-quality, handcrafted golf shoe that we could marry with Nike technology to make it lighter, more comfortable and more wearable.”

628536_001_flt_25354628536_100_flt_25353

To achieve the ultimate combination of craftsmanship and comfort, the Nike Golf footwear designers combined a handcrafted, waterproof leather upper with lightweight Nike Lunarlon technology in the outsole for maximum responsive cushioning. A leather welt, often utilized in traditional methods of making shoes, joins the upper to the outsole while protecting from the elements.

“In the past, wearing a high-end leather golf shoes meant you had to take the time to break it in. Those shoes can be rigid and uncomfortable,” Bucci says. “The Nike Lunar Clayton is a handcrafted leather shoe that is built to last but ready to wear. We obsessed the details, from the leather upper to the contrast stitching to stability and fit.”

A new Internal Dynamic Fit System provides a secure fit and stability in the midfoot through a lacing system that Nike Golf designers moved to the inside of the upper. A molded rubber outsole (Integrated Traction) makes the Nike Lunar Clayton a versatile, wearable shoe both on and off the golf course.

Additional design features include a Nike-crafted Swoosh on the upper, premium sock liner, contrast stitch details and two sets of laces with each pair of shoes.

The Nike Lunar Clayton with be available Jan. 1, 2014 for a suggested retail price of $249.

Nike Hyperadapt Wind Jacket:

585773_307_A_detail

According to Nike’s press release: Featuring the same four-way stretch technology and sweater-like feel as the Hyperadapt Storm-FIT jacket, the Hyperadapt Wind jacket is a lighter, windproof and rain-resistant version perfect for spring. A transparent outer shell showcases the jacket’s technical details inside and out.

Baggy, bigger and bulky used to be the standard go-to for outerwear on the golf course. Nike Golf changed that with the Hyperadapt Storm-FIT jacket in 2013, and with the new Hyperadapt Wind jacket, available at retail Jan. 1, 2014, extra fabric and noisy, distracting swings are now null and void. The Hyperadapt Wind jacket features the same four-way stretch technology and sweater-like feel as the Hyperadapt Storm-FIT jacket in a lighter, windproof and rain-resistant version perfect for spring.

585773_046_A_detail585773_046_B_detail

“With the Hyperadapt Wind jacket there’s no need to ‘size up’ – it’s designed to fit and move with your body,” said Merritt Richardson, Nike Golf VP of Global Golf Apparel. “The four-way stretch laminate through the back, shoulders and upper arms maximizes range of motion and eliminates distractions, and the lightweight outer shell provides superior protection from the elements for all day performance and comfort on the course.”

Inspired by a car with a see-through, engine-exposing hood one of the designers saw in a parking lot on Nike’s Beaverton, Ore., campus, the Nike Golf apparel team incorporated a half-zip, transparent outer shell that showcases the jacket’s technical details inside and out. A v-shaped panel underneath incorporates bonded mesh within the Hyperadapt construction for added breathability and mobility where golfers need it most.

585773_010_A_detail585773_010_B_detail

In addition to a performance-driven design, the Hyperadapt Wind jacket is sustainable, too– recycled coffee grounds were used in part to make the windproof coating on the outer shell, which helps reduce odor from perspiration and assists in UV protection.

The Hyperadapt Wind jacket also features elastic cuffs to keep sleeves from moving up and down during a swing, as well as an adjustable waist and a back pocket for storage.

The Nike Hyperadapt Wind jacket will be available Jan. 1, 2014 for a suggested retail price of $100.

    Okay wow I have read all of the comments and it seems like 90% of the individuals are against nike products before they even posted so the fact that they don’t like nikes new equipment is no surprise. Any time you have new technology you have bugs to work out, players on tour rarely switch over to the new technology right from the get go, nike is focusing on building irons and equipment for lowering high handicaps not further lowering low handicaps. Rory didn’t like the original covert because it was small and unforgiving. Well at that level you shouldn’t need any forgiveness. There’s a saying its the indian not the arrow. The new irons are for mid handicappers and slower swing speeds the tour versions are for tour players if you can’t hit them your not as good as you think you are.

    I have to say i Love the look of the Nike lunar control shoe, The irons are great and the wedges ive only really played with for practice… On the other hand i went to the release of the covert I was Not impressed i didnt like it, Mind you I play titleist clubs. All they need to do is clone a titty driver and woods! LMAO

      Nike’s golf division is actually struggling. This is coming straight from the manufactures mouth. The original Covert driver was a horrible club. Hence the reason Tiger didn’t switch (until the customized one for him) and Rory had swing problems with it. They needed something big and different to grab market shares. They are clawing for everything they can get now. (Reminds me of Wilson) You watch how much they have to dump into advertising this coming year.

    wondering how the covert tour 2.0 will different than the original tour in terms of spin,launch, ball speed!! the original is sooo 4giving compared 2 other drivers….even had a titleist lover convert ro nike because he could not miss a fairway with driver!! all i have to say to all the other guys who hate nike is please try it b4 u knock it, bet u will be suprised

      Tried it, hated it. I tested 10 2013 drivers and rated the Covert Tour 1.0 dead last. Bought it for $125 in the mid summer and had a hard time reselling it for $75. Six months into the season and the word was already out, no one wanted it. Red paint on my club started to chip and flake during cleanings. Performance was so erratic that I have no desire to test 2.0. That said, my brother still hits his.

        uhhhh TW and Rors play stuff the general public cant buy. Im sure TW blades are made in Japan and hes played a old driver until last year and the new one is all black and glued in. They should stick to shoes…Tiger can play anything but look at all the other golfers who struggled with Nike equipment most notably David Duval

    • Ted

      December 11, 2013 at 1:18 pm

      Completely agree with you Kyle. Nike products look ugly and no pro including tiger would prefer to play their equipment. Rory may never come back to his top form after switching. I hope he does to make golf more interesting. The blades they make are decent but the rest are garbage. Their clothes look terrible although they are comfortable and functional. I will certainly try them but, would prefer to play callaway blades, titlist driver, titleist wedges. Callaway wedges and mizuno are great as well.

    • butchhenderson

      December 18, 2013 at 6:00 pm

      I’m with you Kyle, I would not use any of this equipment. That includes the balls. The wedges did look interesting, but I’ll never pay top dollar for this stuff.

    well looks like the same nike haters are at it again!! people, you need to realize that Nike isnt that sumo and sumo2 company any more!!

    They have several players using the VRS forged on tour.. From what i am told this head is a cleaner look than the first gen. If thats true i may grabbing a set.

    wedges look interesting.. ill give them a try before bashing them though

    I have to say, I tried the Covert Tour and I like it enough to buy one but I can’t read anything about the Covert Tour 2.0 that makes me want to wait for it to be released. Just looks like a new paint job on the cavity to me.

    Irons are truely awful, cheap, nasty and Dunlopish

    Its hard to take Nike seriously now (not that I ever did)

      November 25, 2013 at 12:22 am

      Im a titleist guy, but you better take them serious when the top 2 golfers on the planet use them….

      • David Smith

        November 25, 2013 at 9:53 am

        Top 2 players are Woods and Adam Scott, one Nike and one Titleist. I think you’re referring to Rory but his Titltiest equipment got him to the top and since switching he’s making his way back down to the bottom. Better think again about your comment :)

        • kris

          November 25, 2013 at 8:49 pm

          Tiger was once a titleist guy too, and i prefer them to anybody, i don’t compare the two…. but rorys equipment is hardly the cause of his struggles. The ‘real’ top player has been gaming these sticks for over a decade, take out some injuries and a life altering episode he would have held that title at the top. can’t be that bad…

        • MLH

        December 3, 2013 at 11:07 am

        You mean the top 2 guys on the planet are being paid a ton of money to do so- it has nothing to do with equipment, they could play with broomsticks it all about money. One of those top 2 guys has been playing since 1997 and the game of golf has not grown many players- in fact golf has lost participation and has been flat to down since he began playing regularly on tour.

          You’re kidding, right? Tiger influenced the game like no one else has. All around the world you can’t think of golf without thinking of Tiger. Hell I started playing because of him, and I’ve heard that come from Rickie Fowlers mouth. You’re a fool if you think golf hasn’t grown since 97.

        • TSprags

          February 12, 2014 at 6:42 pm

          Game hasn’t grown since 97? I am 32 years old and started playing golf after watching Tiger. I play with a lot of guys who also started playing because of him. Before you bash me and say I am a bum I have a 8 handicap and play Nike covert woods. You are obviously an old timer and you hate the young flashy guys! Golf is 100 times better and more competitive now then before!!

            Second season with Nike irons. Absolutely hit them a club farther than previous irons. Effortless clubs to hit. Oh I’m over 60 so not all of us are like that.

        Kris, I’d play them too if Nike Golf payed me 100 million. ;-)

      Wow, comments from people who have clearly never hit a Nike iron…or more likely never hit any iron well. Anyone who doubts the performance of the VR Pros needs lessons.

        I currently game the nike vr pro combos and while I really like them, the forgings aren’t as soft as mizuno, but they give a truly crisp feel at contact. I believe that the technology and R&D Nike puts into their golf clubs will carry them far.

        And if the equipment that the pros use does not make a difference to how good they are and can play, then seriously, it doesn’t matter what what we use haha.

          Mark, could not have said it better. How could their equipment not make a difference. I just got fitted and realized I was using the wrong lie by 2*. sure made a difference.

      No one cares what you take seriously….they aren’t paying you to play their gear, but maybe Dunlop will. So go find another forum to take your worthless comments.

    Like the Claytons and the wedge is pretty decent. Woods and irons are horrendous.

      Are you on drugs? The original Covert was the best driver on the market can’t wait for 2.0!

    The wedges look interesting, but the woods are hideous. What is with all that ugly stuff on the crown? Does anyone actually like looking at that?!

    • Spitty

      December 3, 2013 at 11:08 am

      I too think the wedges have some merit, be interesting to see how they play.

      As opposed to what, the graphics on the last white Taylor made driver? Have the covert driver and have have played the pro combos for 5 years. Love them – 4handicap….. Stop with the hate

    If the 2.0 regular driver is 460…that puts the 2.0 tour at 400cc. Sign me up. I’d play all of it if I could afford it.

      nm…read it wrong. If the crown pictures are right though, it looks rather tidy

    Does any of this cavity wood stuff actually work?? Any independent testing done on it?? Or would we be better off working with what we have gear wise and work on our swing??

      I tried out the gen 1 5 wood and it was amazingly responsive.

    Ill take ZERO of the clubs and one white jacket. thanks.

    I like the look of the covert tour woods. that white looks sharp on the bottom.

    I think they look cheap and plastic. Not a fan

    November 22, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    I happen to like the designs. Almost everything except for the irons. If they have something to replace my ap2s I could sport a full Nike setup next year!

  21. yo!

    Waiting for the new blades, but it’s going to be hard topping the current ones.

    Tour heads are always going to be smaller. Those Claytons though – wow. Gonna give these a try on. Thanks for redeeming yourself, Nike, from those abominable bubbly Lunar Controal. The first gen LG’s looked so much better

    Drivers look slightly better than last year, fw and hybrids are still ugly. Hate the gigantic hosel on the tour 3w.

  24. LorenRobertsFan

    November 22, 2013 at 5:25 pm

    Woods look the same. Hybrids are hideous from address just like the Covert 1.0. A little too visible of offset for me in the irons. I’m just gonna pick up a discount Covert driver. Only thing that jumps out at me here is the jacket

      I agree with you Fred……Nike has gone downhill. It used to be friggin Incredible!

      • Brian Wilson

        November 22, 2013 at 6:30 pm

        I can’t disagree. I hope those shoes are comfortable…because they look like bobos.

      You guys are probably Taylormade fans! LOL! Clueless…

    November 22, 2013 at 4:53 pm

    Did I completely skip over it or did they not say what the stock shaft was in the irons?

  27. Bryce

    November 22, 2013 at 4:33 pm

    The drivers look alot like a few of the titleist models Rory has played.

  28. Jon

    November 22, 2013 at 3:41 pm

    The VR-S covert 2.0 tour looks like a 3 wood next to the non tour version. Not really feeling the irons or wedges but those black clayton golf shoes look great but seem to be really over priced.

  29. Marko

    November 22, 2013 at 3:36 pm

    As usual strange stuff. But I will give it a try. The VRS Forged looks good. Just hope the sole is not to wide.

  30. lloyd duffield

    November 22, 2013 at 3:28 pm

    OK NICE CLUBS ONCE AGAIN BUT THE WOODS ? WOTS DIFFRENT APART FROM THE COLOUR THE DESIGN IS THE SAME BUT I DO LIKE THE WEDGES THEY DO LOOK COOL AND THERE IRONS ARE NICE TO BUT THEY DO LOOK LIKE THE 2013 RANGE .

  31. Billy

    November 22, 2013 at 3:12 pm

    AWESOME!

    • Matt

      November 26, 2013 at 4:11 am

      I agree – great looking stuff. I have a set of the vrs forged irons and they so long its mental – 2 clubs longer than my old cally’s.
      The driver will be interesting because i have both the covert 1.0 performance and tour and are hoping for something between the 2 from one of these. The tour stuff i think does look better.
      Not sure about that massive sole on the wedges. I have a pretty high ball flight as it is.
      More good stuff from Nike in my opinion, challenging the existing boundaries and not just the same stuff as the rest is piling out!
