Nike Golf introduced its new line of VR_S Covert Drivers, Woods and Hybrids for the 2012-13 season. You’ll find plenty of visuals on the new Covert line: bold red paint, the unmistakable ‘Swoosh’ on the crown and large cavity, pushing perimeter weighting to its limits. One item you won’t find however, is loft — well, a single loft anyway.
The new Nike Golf Covert woods have Nike’s FlexLoft system, which allows loft to be adjusted from 8.5 to 12.5 degrees. Edit: face angle is also adjustable and can be tweaked independently.
The 460cc Nike VR_S Covert Performance Driver will retail for $299 and come stock with a 50g Mitsubishi Kuro Kage 50g shaft.The Covert Tour Driver is 430cc, pear-shaped, and comes standard with a 60g Mitsubishi Kuro Kage shaft. Retail will be $399. Both will be available in February 2013.
