I've been hoping for a while it would be updated as it was awful compared to others.  But now it seems to have been folded into the Nike store.  Only thing I can find is info on the Covert driver.  all other club info is hidden or buried or...I don't know what.  

If I'm missing something feel free to flame.

Actually, they are no longer continuing the previous lines of clubs, Only the 2013 stuff will be available. Even in stores like Golfsmith/Golf Galaxy, they are clearing out everything old that is Nike.

Not 100% sure, but like 99.5%. I tend to follow Nike pretty close, and my roommate works at Golfsmith.


Off topic: The site says Tiger is playing the Nike VR LTD. But he has been playing the VR Pro, I wonder if he is switching early 2013, I know he has been testing it throughout the past few months.

Good deals galore to be had if this is true!

This is not something I wanted to hear. Now I will be tempted on the VR Pro line and probably insane deals to be had.  Especially a Hybrid.

I know what you mean.  I'm debating now if I should pull the trigger on a couple LTDs, I have already spent so much this year and its not even Feb yet.  I just don't want to miss out in the deals you know...

I highly doubt Nike will ever bring DD back on. He may be playing their clubs trying to get back in. But I read somewhere recently that Nike has cut all ties with DD for good.

From what I've seen, Nike will over a lot more shafts this years compared to the past. I am excited for that!! In their fitting carts they have a few Fujikura, a few Kuro Kage's, and a couple UST's..

That is only the tip of the iceberg though.

I'm not understanding this...they relaunch the website and only have drivers listed?  They aren't going to offer the VR Pro line anymore, but don't have replacements ready to go yet?  None of this makes much sense to me!

I'm a Nike enthusiast and I'd agree with that statement. It's pretty terrible.

They have new VR pro wedges coming out this year too.  Very strange.

Just from a business standpoint, if you're signing Rory, Watney, Stanley, etc, wouldn't you want a "Player's" line ready to be introduced?  Seems like you're missing the boat on the purpose of signing new players.  It's just weird.

Don't really know...........and maybe the poster talking about the discounts who has a roomie that works for Golfsmith knows more than I do but..........I can tell you at the PGA show ALL they had on display both on the range at Demo Day and in their booth at the show was the Covert product.  I asked one of the reps and he said that all they were having was the Covert Product as that is all they were introducing this year.  Still seems strange that they wouldn't have the players product on display.  My .02.

I called yesterday to ask about a shaft upgrade. When I asked about the site she said it was under construction until the launch of the new stuff on feb 7th or 8th I can't remember. Anyways they are aware of it and she said it will be much improved when they are done.

You would think that they would keep the one that lists everything such as specs and photos of the clubs online and only take it down when the new site is tested and bug free.
