To kick-start the creation of Nike Golf’s new line of hybrids, Nike Golf engineers re-examined the range of metal woods that women golfers have in their bags. From drivers to fairway woods, the club heads decrease in size – and Nike Golf followed that same strategy with the new range of women's VRS Covert 2.0 hybrids.
Tapping into what the engineers at The Oven call “Linear Transition Design," the club team crafted the women's VRS Covert 2.0 hybrids with progressively smaller head sizes as loft increases, while increasing the face height on each model. The #2 and #3 hybrids, with larger heads, perform more like fairway woods to advance the ball, while the #4 and #5 hybrids are designed for approach shots toward the green.
“With the new VRS Covert 2.0 hybrids, the longer the shot, the more forgiving the club,” says Tony Dabbs, Nike Golf Global Product Director, Golf Clubs. “When we looked at it, we realized it makes more sense, especially with a #2 and #3 hybrid, to produce ball flight that is more similar to a fairway wood. As the line progresses, the heads get smaller, and the #4 and #5 hybrids are designed to hit the green with a little higher trajectory and more shot-making precision.”
Both the women's VRS Covert 2.0 hybrids and the VRS Covert 2.0 Tour hybrids feature Nike’s updated Fly-Brace design that helps reinforce the cavity back design by stiffening and stabilizing the club head - helping to create more longer and straighter shots. And with NexCOR face technology updates that incorporate variable face thickness compared to the already hot face of its Covert hybrid predecessor, the new women's Covert 2.0 Hybrid is Nike's hottest hybrid ever and out to make huge performance pay-offs in your game.
Sported with a Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Black HBP Graphite 70 shaft, featuring a higher balance point to allow for higher swing speeds without adding shaft length, the all new VRS Covert 2.0 hybrid will have you loaded with all new Nike forgiveness and shot-making precision.
