looks cheap.  and I love Nike stuff.  I sold a rbz driver to play a VR tour instead.  Also used to play the machspeeds and they were cool.  These just look like something off of gigagolf.  



P.S. nothing wrong with Gigagolf, but these Nike Irons don't jump out at me like the Rocketbladez and the new x-forged do.

Why are they so busy looking, as in too much going on?  I really don't care for them.  The VR-S forged look much better.  This being said, performance is king.

I actually like the look, matches the rest of the Covert line.

What are the specs? Lofts? Shafts?

Is it possible to throw more labels on the clubhead itself? Those are most unimpressive...

Copies of Callaway Diablo Forged - the best irons Callaway produced so far, so perhaps Nike can learn from the masters.
I bet you the grips and shafts will be below the par as always.

Nothing that loud should be called "Covert".   These as covert as Loudmouth pants.

I was very impressed with the Covert Drivers appearance but the irons look really bulky. I guess I will wait to make my final decision when I test them out once released.
