Spotted: Nike Vapor Fly Flex 440 driver



After images leaked of what appeared to be Nike’s new Vapor Fly line, we spotted Kevin Chappell testing what we presume to be called “Nike Vapor Fly Flex 440” driver at the 2015 RSM Classic.

Based on the photos, the driver has the same battery-style weight in the sole as its predecessor, the Vapor Flex, which was previously used to adjust center of gravity (CG). Also, the driver most likely measures 440 cubic centimeters judging from the “440” printed on the club.

No further information is currently available about the driver, but you can check out our in-hand photos below, and see what GolfWRX members are saying here.

    In my opinion, Nike drivers and fairways sit waaaay too upright!! Major move forward for them is to allow flat lie angles!! It’s the main reason I can’t get beyond even sitting a Nike driver on the ground in front of me……lie angle is very fundamental and has a great impact on how one comes into the through the ball!! Nike should know better.

    The fit and finish looks dreadful, like some dude stuck the pieces together in the trunk of his car right before he went to play

    Say what you will about Nike but the vapor flex is by far the best sounding driver on the planet…
    Rick Shiels was even taken aback by how dead it sounds…
    It was because of his surprise by the dead sound that I bought the driver….
    Not the longest driver I’ve ever hit but the best sounding driver since the 460 era began…

        I have a tour vault sldr…nice but not nearly as dead sounding as Nike…not even on the same planet..
        And dead, soft sound is what I’m going for…
        Sldr cool if that’s your bag but it ain’t for me….great driver though IMHO…even love the tp velox st x…

    Black and blue top looks solid, absolutely love the blue swoosh, that random “volt” stripe on the bottom + PUKE!

    I could get used the to weird weight shape, but that stripe.

      Do you swing while looking at the bottom of the club?

    It does seem to have a lot going on. I like the look of the Vapor Fly much better. Then again I guess thats not surprising as I don’t care for the current version of the Flex either

    The blue looks good(my favorite color), but if you are going in that direction then get rid of the electric green. that doesn’t go together. In fact, Nike should just do a custom paint program. If they are going to take this route then let the consumer determine their own color.

    Dear oh dear that looks cheap. Who exactly is designing Nike woods? An art student or a Golfer?

    LOL @ Dan, looks nothing like M1! I would have to see it in person…and again…if it is $450 retail…not worth it unless I am fit by Nike and beats current driver outside. IMO, still not worth it…great scoop golfwrx again…cool pics.

    Oh, and the James Bond style rear port for smoke, oil slick, throwing stars for counter measure defenses!! Go NIKE!!!

      Close, it’s a miniature NOS canister.

      I’ve played the Vapor Pro since it came out and am still gaming it. Nike makes some great drivers, and they don’t look as weird as some of the cobras at least..

WRX Spotlight: AfterShokz Trekz Air headphones



AfterShokz Trekz Air Wireless Open Ear Headphones

Honestly, this is not a review we intended on doing. Wireless headphones were not on our radar for 2019, and certainly not on our list of “golf essential” equipment. But an ad for Aftershokz headphones caught our eye. Sleek. Lightweight and “Open Ear”? We needed to check them out in person. With that, here we are.

Product: AfterShokz Trekz Air wireless open air headphones

Basically, this is a wireless headset with bluetooth connectivity with and open ear design. You can still hear your music AND the world around you at the same time. It’s a bit of genius. If you like sports but are one of those “one earbud in, one out so you can hear your surroundings” people, AfterShokz is marketing to you.

Pitch: From AfterShokz: “The next generation of bone conduction technology is what’s inside our lightest and most organically designed open ear headphones to date. We cut the bulk and used titanium everywhere possible to ensure they not only fit more securely but sound better too. Trekz Air are inspired by the demands of elite and aspiring athletes motivated by their music and their world.”

Our take on the AfterShokz Trekz

While the AfterShokz Trekz Air are not golf specific, they are a nearly perfect accessory for your range practice time. They are comfortable, sweat and water resistant and have very good sound. The open air nature is a huge plus, so you can still hear the world around you while listening to music, a recorded lesson, or a golf tempo trainer. Aftershokz claims up to a 6-hours of continuous use on a single charge. We found that to be fairly accurate.

While the $149 price point is not small change, these are not golf specific and can be worn daily. We found them to be plenty comfortable jogging, biking and just running errands. Some reviewers on the internet claim they weren’t as comfortable on the ears over a long period of time, but we didn’t experience it. We were able to wear them comfortably for extended periods with and without glasses or with or without a hat or helmet.

Very impressed.

One criticism is we felt the mic functionality was a little spotty. The users on the other end had some difficulty hearing us on the phone. It works in a pinch, but for longer conversations, we thought it was just easier to disconnect the device and put the phone to our ear.

While AfterShokz Trekz Air wireless headphones won’t make your golf game better, their one of our favorite golf accessories of 2019 so far.

WRX Spotlight Review: Miura KM-009 putter



Product: Miura KM-009 putter

Pitch: From Miura: “A rolled top line and a tapered heel help to deliver a putter head which is both pleasing to the eye and easy to square to your putting line. As is the case with our other putters, the milled face is extremely forgiving and produces a strike which transmits to the feel, distance control and in achieving the truest of rolls from reduced skid. This classic putter design goes through the same forging process as our irons.”

Our take on the Miura KM-009 putter

When you hear the name Miura, you think of forged irons, forged wedges, and tales of Tiger’s old clubs. Rarely do we think of putters when we hear that legendary name. Like the classic, legendary name’s wares, the KM-009 putter has a classic shape and great lines.

The Miura KM-009 is a chunky looking version of the classic Anser blade putter in a brushed white chrome. From address, it has a thick top line and looks a little shorter heel to toe, with slightly rounded bumpers. Almost like a Newport and Newport 2 had a child!

The flange seems to be a standard length with a single thin sight line. From behind the flange and bumpers are thick and hefty, giving you the look of being really solid. I am typically not a blade putter guy, but I like the thicker look of the KM-009, as other blades can get to small and thin for my eye. The face milling looks great going from shallow at the top of the putter to deeper near the bottom.

On the green the white chrome color contrasts well and I personally like the shape. I know shape is personal and how it looks to your eye could be drastically different. With the thicker top line I think the heavier bumpers help frame the ball well and focus your eyes more towards the sightline. Again, putter feel and sound really depends on the player and to me the KM-009 is a great feeling and sounding flatstick. The thicker face provides a really solid feel, responsive but without any unnecessary vibration.

Even putts off the heel and toe have a solid feel with just a slight bit more vibration to them. The distance on those mishits was actually better than I thought. For a putter that doesn’t have touted technology in the face the rollout was really good. Now those same mishit shots did travel farther offline, missing the cup by more than a couple inches each way.

The sound of the putter to me was perfect, with just the light click on impact.

The only negative to the putter is that the milling on my head wasn’t flawless. Inside the logo on the sole and near the model number you could see some milling that shouldn’t be there, something that shouldn’t be an issue on a $400 putter. From images on the web I haven’t seen other heads with similar issues, so it is probably just this one.

Overall, the KM-009 is for the player who wants great feel and sound, without caring about tech. Miura club users will find themselves in familiar territory with the KM-009: phenomenal feel and sound in a traditional package.

Forum Thread of the Day: “The hunt for the perfect 5-wood”



Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from keithrichards, who is looking to add a 5-wood to his bag. Good elevation off the deck is a crucial requirement in his search, and ignoring the latest lines, our members discuss what 5-wood they believe is the best option.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • uwhockey14: “Sonartec, 19* is an awesome club with the right shaft in it. Excellent off the deck! Only 5-Wood I’ve been able to be somewhat consistent with as I played 2-Iron for years and years and struggle with hybrids!”
  • mwink822: “I like my Titleist 917 F2 from all areas (tee, fairway and rough).  The Ping G400 was also a good performer, but I hated the way it looked behind the ball.  The Callaway Steelhead XR is also a good option, but I elected not to go that avenue myself as the 5-wood has a slightly closed (to my eyes anyway) appearance at address.”
  • mowakebum: “G400 5 wood, easy to hit, put it in the bag last year and it’s in no danger of being replaced. Point and shoot full send.”
  • Mitchell: “In a 5-wood, still very difficult to beat a V steel with the appropriate shaft for your stated needs in a non-adjustable.In adjustable, the various Cobra clubs with baffler rail system would be a great place to start, f6 baffler is phenomenal out of rough.”
