Pros: FlexLoft adjustability can set up great for anyone off the rack. The Kuro Kage Black shaft is a fantastic OEM option. Nike's new Tour Wrap grips are extremely tacky and feel great.
Cons: Sound off the face is very dull.
Conclusion: The Covert 1.0 driver felt a little more rigid and raw, unfinished so to speak. Nike went back and re-engineered the 2.0's High Speed Cavity Back design and I believe they did a great job making the Covert 2.0 be more forgiving, easier to hit. With my swing, the Kuro Kage in the Tour model fit me better. I felt myself slowing down my swing speed but was able to keep my ball speed up.
A Quick Look from GOLFLIFE TV
The Nike VR_S Covert 2.0 Driver features an enhanced cavity back design with new Fly-Brace technology to deliver faster ball speed and greater forgiving distance with every shot.
The Nike VR_S Covert 2.0 improves on its predecessor with a re-engineered High Speed Cavity Back design for increased distance and more stability. With all-new Fly-Brace technology, the rear portion of the club is reinforced so that more energy is transferred to the face at impact. The result: even greater ball speed and up to six yards of distance gain compared to the previous model.
The FlexLoft adjustability system allows you to customize your loft and face angle positions independently of each other to optimize launch and spin conditions for maximum distance and accuracy. This simple pull, turn, push-and-tighten system offers loft and face angle positions for 15 drivers in one club to meet the demands of your game.
The seven-percent larger NexCOR face incorporates variable face thickness for a faster, hotter face and, subsequently, more ball speed at impact.
- Head adjustable from 8.5 to 12.5 degrees of loft and three face angle positions
- Kuro Kage Black HBP graphite 50 shaft with a higher balance point for higher swing speeds without adding shaft length
In the time I had to test the Nike VR_S Covert 2.0 driver I realized that the dull, blunt sound off the face of the club should not be translated to loss of distance. The ball carries off the face and I found it very easy to work the ball left or right. The Covert 2.0 is a great option for the mid to high handicap golfer looking for a driver that not only looks great but is easy to hit, easy to adjust and can go deep.
