Nike has launched its VRS Covert 2.0 irons, building on the performance benefits of the first generation of Covert irons with improved design elements in the 2014 model to make it easier for golfers to hit the ball farther and higher with superior stability and feel.
A larger cavity in the VRS Covert 2.0 irons moves more metal to the perimeter of the club head and allows for a larger face, which amplifies the ‘trampoline effect’ and produces more ball speed at impact. Nike’s club engineers have also lowered the centre of gravity by modifying the mass in the back of the club head and shifting that weight lower and more towards the toe for a higher and more stable ball flight.
Chris Savage, Nike Golf Irons Innovation Engineer says, “What’s impressive about the VRS Covert 2.0 set is that golfers can be aggressive and confident with these irons. This set utilises our largest cavity and thinnest perimeter to deliver higher ball speed and greater distance. We have also refined our leading edge bevel to make it easier for these irons to go through the turf. Throughout development, these irons have proven to be the best distance irons we have created to date.”
