Nike Covert Driver – The pictures you haven’t seen!

We finally got our hands on Nike’s new line of clubs for next year…WOW! After 2 initial sessions with them I think they’ve got a hit on their hands. Great feel, even better sound and the ball just goes, even on mishits.  Personally, I managed to pull a small muscle in my back the 2 days ago chasing my 2 year old, so couldn’t come close to finishing my swing and my drives were still getting out to 275 with lots of forgiveness and limited drop off on the many miss-hits! As much as we loved the drivers, fairway woods and hybrids, I think the new irons are going to be the sleeper hit. Maximum forgiveness with a respectably thin top line and limited offset combined with unreal distance are major pluses. The part that might just put them over the top is the feel; they feel much softer and solid than a typical cast cavity back. (more…)
