The new 2014 Nike VRS Covert 2.0 fairway wood has enhanced playability and even greater distance thanks to Nike's golf research and design team. They have come back this year with a different club head shape and design elements that make this a distance bombing machine. Let's take a look at what makes the Nike VRS Covert 2.0 fairway wood the best performance fairway wood that Nike has made to date.
The VRS Covert 2.0 fairway wood features a unique fly-brace technology. This ties the sole to the crown of the golf club. With this technology, when a golf ball is struck, the rear portion of the golf club stiffens up, which creates more stability in the golf club. The stiffened rear portion of the club then transfers energy back to the face and then back into the ball. The fly-brace technology increases the amount of total energy restored to the face, with the high-speed cavity back design aiding the process. Both of these features are design elements that create longer and straighter golf shots.
Nike engineers have reengineered the NexCOR face for 2014. The enhancements to the face of the golf club produce faster ball speeds that translate to gains in shot distance. The overall design of the golf club has shifted the body closer to the ground. With the clubhead closer to the ground, the center of gravity (CG) has been lowered 2.5 millimeters causing the spin rate to also drop by more than 650 revolutions per minute. The reduction of spin creates a flatter trajectory for the golf shot. The breakthrough in club face design make this fairway wood the hottest fairway wood Nike has ever created.
The Nike VRS Covert 2.0 fairway wood is available in a 3 wood (15°) or a 5 wood (19°). The fairway wood features a Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Black HBP graphite shaft. The shaft weighs 70 grams which aids moderate swing speeds in achieving faster ball speeds for increased distance. The new shaft features a mid-launch trajectory to achieve optimum launch conditions and maximum distance. These shafts are available in multiple flexes.
This year Nike has made a performance fairway wood that can enhance all skill levels. The fly-brace technology showcases state-of-the-art technology that produces superior energy transfer throughout the clubhead for extreme distance. The fairway wood's clubhead size and reengineered NexCOR face achieve maximum forgiveness and playability resulting in longer golf shots.
