TESTERS ANNOUNCED! Nike Vapor Flex 440 Driver

Recommended Posts

Testers Wanted!!!

Nike Vapor Flex 440 Driver

Are you looking for a little more hop in your pop? A little more fly in your sky? A little more ka-boom in your broom?

 

When it comes to drivers, who isn't?

 

We know distance is good, and distance in the general direction of the green is even better.  And when it comes to our big artillery, long and findable make for fun golf.

All the better if it's a stick with bitchin' good looks.

Unique By DNA

No matter how you feel about Nike's golf clubs, one thing you can't say is "same thing, only different." The word "unique" definitely applies.

 

So does "polarizing."

 

Nike has no problem with “polarizing.” You may love ‘em, you may hate ‘em, but as far as Nike is concerned, at least you're paying attention. Big, bright swooshes, Volt-yellow underbellies and now a Swedish flag color scheme - Nike gives you clubs you can't help but notice.

Color and flash get you looks, but performance gets you gamed. And if you're a better player, Nike thinks its new Vapor Flex 440 driver is long enough, straight enough and unique enough to find a home in your bag.

Of Flight Pods & RZN...

2015's original Vapor Flex driver broke the mold with its extensive use of RZN (roughly 20% of the body was made of Nike's mystery meat) and with its Flight Pod – an AA battery-looking movable weight thingy that lets you swap the CG from low-forward to low-back.

If a little bit of RZN is good, then apparently a truck-load of RZN is better. Nike joins the multi-material parade by making a full 60% of the 2016 Vapor Flex 440 head out of RZN (the rest is titanium). As a result, the new 440CC head is larger, lighter and deeper than its 420CC older brother, with the requisite thinner, hotter face.

 

And the Flight Pod lets you fine tune for either a mid-or low launch angle, more workability or more forgiveness and either low spin or wicked low spin.

 

Combine the Flight Pod with Nike's Flex Fit 2.0 adjustability and you have a driver with a Transformer-like 30 unique loft, face angle and flight settings.

Test & Review? We Want You!

Make no mistake, Nike says the Vapor Flex 440 is aimed at better players, combining the right amount of forgiveness with the obligatory beastly distance. As you know, MyGolfSpy never takes anyone's word for anything. #DataCratic is a way of life as well as a hashtag, and we want your help.

Nike Golf is providing us with 4 Vapor Flex 440 drivers, and we need 4 of you to do the heavy lifting and test and review them for us. Does the Flight Pod make a difference? Does this thing deliver length, accuracy, and forgiveness? And is it a piece of heavy artillery worthy of consideration in your bag?

How To Sign Up:

If you'd like to test the Nike Vapor Flex 440 driver for MyGolfSpy, please tell us:

 

First name, home state/province/country
Your current driver, current shaft and current flex
Swing speed and average carry

 

Nike-Vapor-Flex-440-1.jpg

 

This is a great opportunity to test out one of the most unique drivers on the market today. We need you to help us determine if “unique” equals “performance.”

 

We'll be selecting our 4 testers in a week to 10 days, and will announce the testers in our Official Forum thread.

      Since we are now almost a year removed from Nike getting out of the equipment game, I was wondering if anyone has ever come across any photos of the 2017 equipment line that would have been launched.
       
      Based on the chatter last year, the 2017 equipment was already finished and 2018 was in development, but I personally haven't come across any photos of what they left on the table when they decided to close up shop. And in this day and age, there isn't a lot that you can't find on the internet with a quick google search. Was everything completely locked down, destroyed and burned once ping bought some of their parents? We're the innovations so mind blowing that the CIA is covering it up and using the technology in its clandestine assignments across the globe?
       
      I know the majority of the golfing community was not a fan of Nike equipment, but I have gamed their drivers for a while as they just seemed to work for me. Heck I still bag the covert tour 2.0 driver with that bright red paint and huge cavity (which I use as a couch for my golf ball while waiting on the tee box for the rest of my group to tee off. I think that is really what it was built for!) So naturally, as a purchaser of their clubs, I am curious what innovations (or gimmicks, if you prefer to call the, that) the company was attempting to bring to the table.

      Hey guys, wanted to take a minute to introduce to y'all - STICKSWAP.
       
      My buddy and I created this golf club marketplace so people like you could easily buy & sell used clubs.  Just like eBay, but just clubs.  Also, we'll be spending money on advertising to make sure your clubs get seen, and ultimately sold. 
       
      Check it out and let me know what you think. - www.stickswap.co
       
      Best,

      The retail prices on all of this seasons Nike Products dropped at Midnight last night. All Drivers are now $150.00!! Fairway woods are $100 and Hybrids are $90. If you have been thinking about the new Nike woods, now might be the right time....
