Nike VRS Covert 2.0 Driver Review

The designers at Nike strengthened the sole-cavity’s internal frame to reduce energy loss.  The Covert 2.0 also features a larger face than previous models for increased stability on off-center hits.

The 2014 VRS Covert 2.0 driver looks mostly the same as the 2013 VRS Covert model on the outside. The clubhead is still that deep red color, although a splash of white has been added in the club’s back cavity but at address its basically looks the same.

On the inside, however, the new driver is significantly different. The Covert 2.0 takes advantage of something called Fly-Brace technology in the hollow internal cavity. This back cavity cannot be seen, which means Fly-Brace cannot be seen by the naked eye.

Fly-Brace is a support brace inside the clubhead that runs from the crown on top to the sole on the bottom. Nike says it creates a rock-solid union between the crown of the club and the sole of the club.

Now if you thought there was a Fly-Brace in the 2013 version of the Covert you were correct, but it was not nearly as strong as the new brace. The angle and thickness have been changed in the Covert 2.0, and the result is a clubhead that is significantly stiffer.

Don’t worry though because stiff, in this case, is a good thing. It means more stability and less energy loss, particularly in the rear portion of the clubhead. Nike says this creates a more efficient energy release in the face of the driver.
