Nike Golf’s Full 2015 Equipment Line

Published

on

Those of you making a new equipment wish list will love this: all of Nike’s 2015 products, which includes many things we expected and a few things that we didn’t expect.

Regulars in our forum knew that there were three new Nike drivers: the Vapor Flex, the Vapor Pro and the Vapor Speed, and we assumed that new fairway woods and hybrids were coming in 2015 as well. Nike also announced the release of three new Vapor irons in August. What we didn’t know, however, was that Nike would bring radical new wedge designs called “Engage” and two new lines of Method putters.

Take a look at our screen dumps of the new clubs and specs below (you can click on the images to enlarge them), or click this link to read the discussion in the forums.

    Those wedges look terrible!

    Can’t wait to see some of these in person. The vapor irons look great in person, but I haven’t seen the woods, wedges, or putters yet. NIKE has really come a long way in the last few years.

    does anyone know if the black part on the back of the clubs is just paint or an insert? The reason I ask these clubs would look a lot better after I took some paint remover to them.

    I don’t get it….if the line isn’t out yet, how the heck is Rory already playing the new Vapor driver 🙂

      The guys on tour sponsored by Nike have access to prototypes at their disposal before the public does.

    The Vapor pro irons looks great from the address position and I like the flex driver best from the address position of the drivers. So did Rory switch to everything in the Vapor line, fairways too?

    Does anyone else think it’s weird that the woods and irons are the “volt” and black colour scheme but the putters are red and black? How annoying! Why on earth would they do that!

    Best-looking Nike clubs ever.

    Putters look sexy in a futuristic way. I have gamed a Nike putter and almost bought a second. Might have to give that pro combo a try as well…

    Really not feeling the look of these. IMO the worst looking clubs out there.

  11. Nigel

    I think the Pro driver, speed fairway and hybrid will be seeing the inside of my golf bag next year.
    Love the colourway

    Is Nike’s club business robust enough to carry three separate product lines? Seems like a lot of product.

    sure glad you guys got this before they (NIKE) took it off line. thanks again

    I like my gap wedge to match my set.
    I wonder if the AW from the Pro Combo would match 4-pw Pro???

  15. Cwolf

    Oct 1, 2014 at 6:05 pm

    So excited that they are bringing back the ds wedge and having a raw finish. That is exactly what I was hoping for. The vr ds wedge is in my bag now and I love it, but the glare is awful. This new one is perfect!!!!

    The Nike Camerons look pretty good

    I like the engage wedge… That about sums it up.

  18. Tizod

    Oct 1, 2014 at 1:17 pm

    Kinda surprised by the length of the Speed iron lineup. The Coverts 2.0 were already longer than “standard” and now they increased it another 1/4″

    43.75″ 3 Wood?! Yikes.

    Nike Golf just gets better… I really like this offering. If I’m going to pick nits, I like the sole offerings but just wish their wedges were “classic.”

    • TR1PTIK

      Oct 1, 2014 at 12:46 pm

      Agreed. Although a bigger gripe on the lineup would have to be their inclusion of the Wrap 2G grip for the woods and hybrids. That grip seems to wear rather fast and is horrible for moisture control – I’m currently playing the grip on my irons and can’t wait to switch. No way would I want that grip on the fastest swinging clubs in my bag! They should have used the Tour Velvet or similar grip. Actually, they could have kept their “volt” theme going and used the Niion grips throughout the entire lineup. It would have been uglier, but at least it’s a better grip in my opinion.

      • John

        Oct 1, 2014 at 1:54 pm

        On your comment about the wedges. I do understand where you’re coming from, but I think one of the things that I’ve admired most about Nike’s recent golf offerings is the fact that they’re willing to be a little different in order to innovate. They don’t look like Vokey’s, because I think Nike doesn’t want to be associated with Vokeys, they want to be able to stand out on their own as an innovative wedge that performs. Same with the Covert Drivers and the cavity. And as an owner of a toe sweep 58*, I can attest, that they do indeed perform. But I have been waffling back and forth between going to a slightly more forgiving GI iron, and the vapor speeds have my attention. Fitted, of course, so I wouldn’t have to deal with the generous length, I’m -1/2″ from standard as it is.

    Look at that price list. They sure aren’t shy about wanting top dollar as an MSRP

  23. J

    Oct 1, 2014 at 11:53 am

    Adjustable weight in the putter grip seems like a neat idea.

  24. TR1PTIK

    Oct 1, 2014 at 11:42 am

    Surely retail prices will be lower, but I nearly crapped myself when I saw the MSRP for the Vapor Flex driver! Glad I don’t have any interest in that one, but I am interested in the Vapor Pro and would hope that retail will be closer to the $400 mark. Nice to get a look at the full lineup though, and I’m very interested in the putters and wedges as well. Great looking stuff from Nike this year!

    • MHendon

      Oct 1, 2014 at 12:18 pm

      Give it a year and get them for half price.

      • TR1PTIK

        Oct 1, 2014 at 12:37 pm

        Very true! Nike’s markdowns are often some of the biggest when new releases are just around the corner.

Best driver under $100

Published

on

Look, we get it, golf clubs, more specifically new drivers, can be expensive. Once you factor in the potential cost of a fitting and or other shaft options you could be looking at a single club that retails for close to $1,000—that’s a lot of dough! That’s why we want to help show you what you can get for your money with the best driver under $100.

Tiny village of Tyndrum set for £200 million gold rush after | Metro News

As much as we love new clubs and new technology, at GolfWRX we still love to find the best deals to help golfers get the most value and when it comes to clubs and in this case drivers. There is a lot of value in the marketplace if you know where to look, so we did the looking for you and have assembled the best drivers you can find under $100.

** Note: Used club prices fluctuate and the clubs selected for this list we’re easily located in good shape for under the stated $100 price point ** 

Best driver under $100

Taylormade Jet Speed

As far as marketing a driver goes, I don’t think anyone has still quite figured out how or why tour player puppet look-a-likes was a great idea, but the Jet Speed driver itself was actually a really good driver that offered adjustability and mid to lower spin in a forgiving design. The best part about the JetSpeed is the current TaylorMade adapter is still compatible, so if you happen to have a few shafts kicking around you can even do some testing.

Adams XTD

The XTD was the last “premium line” driver ever produced by Adams golf, and it benefits from the fact that by this time TaylorMade had purchased the Plano, Texas-based company and it was using the same adapter tip as the current crop of TaylorMade drivers.

It was designed to produced right to the limit CT/CoR numbers, thanks in part to slots placed both on the sole but also on the crown, and because of this design, it was a bit of an acquired taste for some golfers. If you can get past the looks from address, you will have yourself a driver that keeps up to almost anything.

Titleist 910

The Titleist 910 is another driver that benefits from being older, while still using the same type of adapter as the modern models. It came in two versions; the 910D2 which was shallower and more forgiving, and the 910D3 which is a more traditional pear shape with a taller face that offers lower spin.

Both versions of the driver can be found in nice shape for under $100, and if you take some time to look around, you can find quite a few with aftermarket shafts that make this best driver under $100 seem like a complete bargain.

Cleveland Launcher DST – Distance Sub Three hundred

Cleveland Launcher DST 2010 | Spy Golfer

The Cleveland Launcher DST drivers could be one of the best all-around options when it comes to a driver for under $100.

Like others on this list, the Launcher DST came in a couple of options; a standard model and a “tour” version featuring a lower spinning fade biased head design. For the stronger players that prefer a fixed hosel, the DST Tour came stock with a Miyazaki Kusala Black which in the aftermarket would cost around $300 on its own!

GolfWRXers discussed the best driver under $100 back in 2018 in the forums. See what they said.

Member Tmintx – PXG 0211 irons in great shape

This is a set of PXG irons in great shape for under $600, which also happens to make it an amazing deal! You better act fast.

Member remyaubrn – Mizuno MP18 Blades

I have a personal belief that the MP-18s will go down as one of the best modern Mizuno blades ever made – classic straight muscle design with a square look from address. If I didn’t already own a set these wouldn’t be for sale anymore, so consider it a sign that if you’re in the market these are for you!

Member bknapp34 – Honma ROSE Proto irons

Although they never received the love they truly deserved, the Honma Rose Protos are undoubtedly one of the nicest-looking blade irons in modern memory. This is a fantastic deal on a fantastic set of irons.
