Nike’s Vapor Fly will hit stores on Jan. 29

Published

on

Nike has announced that its new Vapor Fly line of clubs — two drivers, a fairway wood, a hybrid and two sets of irons — will be available starting Jan. 29.

A third Vapor Fly driver, Nike’s Vapor Flex 440, will be available starting March 4.

Rumors about Nike’s 2016 golf club line have been circulating for months, along with photos of the new gear. Finally, we have the official details on the clubs. Learn more each of Nike’s new releases below, and visit Nike’s website for all the details.

  • Official Name: Nike Vapor Flex 440
  • Head size: 440 cubic centimeters
  • What you need to know: Nike’s adjustable CG driver (forward and back positions) is designed to be its lowest-spinning model. More than 60 percent of the club head is made from carbon fiber-reinforced RZN, according to Nike. That should help make it more playable than last year’s model, which was light on forgiveness.

Fairway Wood

  • Official Name: Nike Vapor Fly Fairway Wood
  • Adjustability: Five models. New adjustable hosel allows for independent standard or upright lie angle settings. Adjustable lofts range from 12-22 degrees.
  • What you need to know: A lower CG from a lighter crown should create a higher launch angle and and less spin than previous Nike fairway woods. A “HyperFlight Face” is designed to be thinner around its perimeter for more ball speed across the face.

Hybrid

  • Official Name: Nike Vapor Fly Hybrid
  • Not adjustable
  • What you need to know: This one is designed to be a “true iron replacement” with a “tour shape,” according to Nike.

Irons

  • Official Name: Nike Vapor Fly Pro
  • Set makeup: RZN cavity long irons (2-5), RZN pocket mid irons (6-8) and RZN cavity short irons (9,PW,AW)
  • What you need to know: Nike says these irons launch higher and farther than traditional game-improvement irons, which may indicate that these clubs are larger and more forgiving than the Vapor Pro Combo irons that they seem to replace.

  •  Official Name: Nike Vapor Fly irons
  • Set makeup: RZN cavity long irons (4-7), RZN Pocket mid irons (8-PW) and RZN cavity short irons (AW, SW)
  • What you need to know: These will be higher launching, more forgiving and longer-flying than the Vapor Fly Pro irons. They’re a more “oversized” iron.

    I like the colors. Why be like everyone else. I played Nike since they first came on the scene. they have gotten better every year. I am looking forward to the new Nike vapor pro fly series.

    yay, more mid-year heavily discounted gear!

    Would anyone out of high school play these. The colors limit the market

    Just one question: Did they have to wait 1 cycle, until Cobra had moved past their FLY designation, before Nike could use it?

    Nike make quality woods, irons and wedges but need to sack their “stylists” and hire people who realise most good players want simple, efficient looking clubs and not something that appeals to a 12 year old who think Kanye is cool.

    Hmmmm those drivers look pretty interesting not sure on the irons until I see the rest of them
    I’m sure all the pros on here will upset with whatever lofts are on the club.

    I don’t do pastel colored golf clubs.

    Going from woods to metals now to rzn carbons? For people who want to be literal, i dont know what else to call the flex that is less than 40% metal. LOL

    I hit a flex because it has the deadest sound I’ve hit on a driver since the prov1 era began…
    The flex is not, IMHO, forgiving on anything outside the center of the face…but I’m willing to sacrifice toe bunts for the sound…
    The CGI tech is VERY cool and makes an absolute difference in ball height….
    If the sound is the same as 2014s flex then I will happily buy the new one….especially if it is more forgiving and less spinny on off-center hits.

      The 2016 has an even flatter sound than the 2015 model, it sounds like an old 975J. The flight is awesome, very low spinning and much more forgiving than last years.

    I would be interested in trying the Flex. The original flex was great once you managed to get it set up correctly. I have a ‘2dot’ Covert 2.0 Tour and its gonna be tough to find something that could knock it out of my bag.

    Can’t wait to get fitted for the Fly Pro. I live in Fort Worth and have been out to the Oven a few times for testing. Never got to do anything with “new” stuff; mostly just logging swings and putts for their R&D team. But it was still awesome to get in there and see the bays and equipment.

    Have to find a way to get fit for a full bag out there…would be incredible!
