Nike VR_S Covert Driver
Product of the Week, March 5, 2013

Nike VR_S Covert Performance & VR_S Covert Tour drivers

Nike Golf is billing the VR_S Covert driver as "the most innovative club" the company has ever produced. It features 3 proprietary technologies; High Speed Cavity Back, FlexLoft adjustability and a NexCOR face that are said to combine for enhanced distance, control and forgiveness. 
The High Speed Cavity Back describes the back-middle section of the sole that has been removed to produce a slightly higher MOI. It also helps move the center of gravity a little more forward, which produces a more boring ball flight. The Cavity Back is only visible from the sole hence the name “Covert.” The FlexLoft system allows for adjustment of face angle and loft (between 8.5 and 12.5 degrees,) independently of each other. The NexCor face features an enlarged sweet spot so that slight mis-hits will maintain ball speed more effectively.
With a 460cc head and silver-toned face, the VR_S Covert Performance is designed to be slightly more forgiving and have a higher ball flight than the black faced 430cc VR_S Covert Tour edition. The Covert Tour's smaller head and deeper face are designed to help better players shape their tee shots more easily.
Both drivers will come standard with a low-torque Mitsubishi Diamana Kura Kage shaft.

$299 / Tour $399
