I currently bag the Nike VR_S Covert driver so I was excited to see what the Tour version would offer.

Both clubs have a similar appearance – they look great. A classic head shape is combined with a sexy red finish. The only real difference between the two is the Tour version has a black face and bottom rather than a chrome finish and I think the Tour version looks better for I but not by much.

The first thing I noticed on striking the ball is the fantastic feel on offer. Nike have often been criticised for not producing the greatest feeling clubs but that complaint cannot be levelled at the VR_S Tour. Soft yet firm, this was exactly what I was looking for and expecting from a premium driver.

The better players will be able to benefit from the clubs penetrating ball flight, low spin-rate and workability. When I connected with this club properly it really flew and it’s easy to see why so many players bag this driver on Tour.

While it isn’t as forgiving as the standard VR_S driver, it doesn’t lose a whole heap of distance when not hit perfectly which surprised me and makes the club accessible to the middle handicapper.

While this driver is definitely intended to be used by the better players out there, those who strike the ball well will have a good relationship with it. As for me, I’ll stick with the standard version – she’s serving me well!

Just like the standard version the Tour offers adjustability with the loft.  It comes stock with a lightweight Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage Silever 60 gram shaft which features a smooth bend profile.

Verdict

Low-launching and low-spinning, the VR_S Covert Tour flies a mile and offers great feel
