Nike to release Volt-colored driver

Published

on

Remember Michelle Wie’s custom Volt-colored Nike Vapor Speed driver she debuted in January, and currently has in the bag?

Soon, you will be able to buy one.

On May 4, the “Vapor Speed High-Visibility Volt Edition” driver will be available on Nike’s golf website, and May 8 at select retailers.

The driver was originally designed for Michelle Wie, but according to Nike, other athletes — like Paul Casey, who also uses one — and consumers expressed interest in the eccentric crown.

    I have to admit I liked the rzn ball in that crazy yellow, could see it no problem 300 yards away. Why not buy the same colored driver to make it get there? I think it looks great. No one should drive into you with that in your bag. Safety first!

    I love my Nike red and glad I bought them when I did. The green just doesn’t do it for me.

    After seeing how much people knocked taylormade for white drivers, I’m surprised more people aren’t giving Nike grief for this. Double-standard.

    I’ll take it, nothing beats adding a little more color to the game.

    I have no problem with a company maeketing a new color for an existing product. How a club looks is a big part of it. I just don’t like when they tell methat look will make me hit the club better. If your into fluorescent yellow, then go for it.

    Anyone who thinks some golf equipment companies are about anything more than marketing need look no further than this. I can think of another word starting with V that the volt colour reminds me of! Truly terrible.

      So don’t buy one. Something tells me that Nike does ok with their product marketing!

  • thebishop: “Wow. Those look really good. And the transition is complete now. We’ve gone from visible tech to hiding it all under the hood.”
  • Matty01984: “They look so so good! The thing that I always struggled with when it came to the original T100 was the look at the back. I got over it because they quite simply look incredible behind the ball, but Titleist has taken that up a notch with how they look.”
  • mtnbiker5: “Clean…”

Coolest thing for sale in the GolfWRX Classifieds (06/21/21): Honma TW-PT blade putter

Published

on

At GolfWRX, we love golf, plain and simple.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment of the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball. It even allows us to share another thing we all love – buy and selling equipment.

Currently, in our GolfWRX buy/sell/trade (BST) forum, there is a listing for a Honma TW-PT blade putter. ($325)

From the seller (@nova6868): “You may recognize this putter if you follow Mike Malaska, it’s the same one he rolls. This is Honma’s take on the milled Anser 2 design.

– Soft Stainless SUS303

– Ported neck to save weight

– Tungsten weights added to the sole to increase MOI and forgiveness

– Headweight is 360 grams

– 34 inches, I can add 1″ extension if you want 35

– Stock grip still in plastic, never used

– Stock headcover, never used

– Putter is new, never been outside. Mint/New condition as you can see. These were $450 brand new and I don’t think you can even buy them anymore.”

To check out the full listing in our BST forum, head through the link: Honma TW-PT blade putter

This is the most impressive current listing from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules
