Spotted: Nike Vapor Fly Flex 440 driver

Published

on

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…

        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.

      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..

TaylorMade is releasing its TP Black Copper putters to retail

Published

on

We first spotted TaylorMade’s new TP Black Copper putters at the 2018 PGA Show, but the company wasn’t saying anything about specs, release date, pricing, technologies, nothing.

Then, we all saw Rory McIlroy switch to a TaylorMade TP Black Copper Soto proto putter ahead of the 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational, which he won by 3 strokes. Of course, Rory’s specific Soto putter was made with a special insert. Click here for all of the info and specs on Rory’s putter.

Now, TaylorMade is releasing retail versions to the public in four models — Juno, Soto, Ardmore 3 and Mullen 2 — which will hit stores on 4/20 selling for $199 with a standard Black Lamkin Crossbone Pistol grip, and $219 with a SuperStroke Pistol 1.0 GT grip.

The putters have a triple-plated finish; nickel, then copper, then black chrome, according to TaylorMade’s Bill Price (Senior Director of Product Creation for Wedges and Putters). They’re then hand-polished to achieve the antique and non-glare finish. Overtime, and especially on the sole, Price says the copper will tarnish or oxidize to unveil a gradually more antique and rustic look. Rory McIlroy himself actually had a hand in inspiring the new finish.

“Rory was talking about certain finishes,” Price said. “He wanted something non-glare, with an antique type finish…. he wanted to be reminded of something old school.” 

Thus, the TP Black Copper finish was born.

Also, the putters are machined from 303 stainless steel, they have adjustable sole weights and have the company’s familiar Pure Roll inserts in their faces. Check out more info about each of TaylorMade’s TP Black Copper models below.
