Nike Unveils VRS Covert 2.0 Fairway Woods

Nike has pulled the covers off their latest fairway wood, the VRS Covert 2.0. The new offering feature the high-speed cavity back technology we’ve become accustomed to seeing in the Covert series. The tech promises a reduced spin rate, and longer carry and roll-out. Engineers of the 2.0 have also lowered the centre of gravity.

“We worked closely with our athletes to develop tour-authentic fairway woods that were tested and proven in prototype form by our top athletes on tour in 2013,” says Nate Radcliffe, Nike Golf Director of Engineering. “We’ve adjusted the profile and lowered the center of gravity significantly in both the Tour and Performance models. This update resulted in a spin rate reduction of approximately 600 rpm’s, which equals an average of about eight yards of distance gained for the average player.”

The Covert 2.0 fairways are more stable than ever as well. The Fly-Brace design has been re-jigged a bit to move more material from the center of the club to the heel and toe. The end result is a stiff chassis, putting the focus of any ‘flexing’ on the NexCOR face. End result, faster launch speeds.

The Covert 2.0 fairways also feature Nike’s FlexLoft tech for lie and loft adjustments. The system is quite easy (and quick) to use, and allows you to adjust face angle and loft independently of one another.
