First Look: Nike VRS Covert 2.0 Irons

Like most things, the second iteration of a product is always an improvement over the first iteration, and that’s what Nike Golf engineers did when building the second version of the Nike Covert 2.0 irons. Engineers and designers built upon the the performance benefits of the first generation Covert irons and made them easier to hit farther and higher with solid stability and feel.

Four Things to Know about the Nike VRS Covert 2.0 Irons

[list style=”square”][list_item]The Nike Golf club team shifted the center of gravity behind the center of the face, which provides a more solid impact where golfers hit the ball most, resulting in more distance with great feel. Nike’s club engineers also lowered the center 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. [/list_item][list_item]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. Coupled with a larger cavity, Nike’s proprietary NexCOR variable face thickness technology allows for greater ball speed off the face, resulting in more distance.[/list_item][list_item]A new leading-edge bevel provides more sole area to hit through the turf. The design delivers an additional, effective bounce to the golf club, which is a crucial benefit especially in soft conditions.
