OFFICIAL FORUM MEMBER REVIEW - NIKE VAPOR FLEX 440


Recommended Posts

  • SPY VIP

Guy in my Sunday group plays the 440 flex. He's already a very long hitter so I'm not sure how much he may be leaving on the table vs other drivers.

 

I gotta say though, I just can't get over the wet towel slap sound at impact. Just sound so irregular to most other drivers I've heard.

Still can't believe I was chosen.  So cool.....I entered this review with absolutely zero thought of being selected.  SOOO excited to be able to contribute to this one!   About me: My current inde

Hey everyone, my name is Nick Spears and I really want to thank everyone at MyGolfSpy for choosing me to review the Nike Flex 440. I am a diehard Nike guy and by that I mean, I play nothing but Nike.

NIKE FLEX 440-OFFICIAL MGS FORUM REVIEW by NSpears23   As a Nike lover, I went in to this review hoping this was gonna be my favorite driver ever. So lets find out if it ends the way I hope!   P

Mine is setup at low launch and 8.5. Ive messed with 5 shafts to see if I can get my swing right and its frustrating me beyond belief! As Barb stated, the sound and feel is amazing, but im just not hitting it solid. Maybe next year they will give us a 460 version???

I'm on my 4th shaft with this driver and still can't get things right, frustration doesn't even begin to describe things.

Now that you know there will not be any more Nike clubs, does that change your impressions?  How do you feel about Nike's decision to cease equipment operations?

It doesnt change my impression of Nike Golf. Other than I never thought Id see them quit at anything. Im not happy about it. If you know me outside of this message board, you know that Im a diehard Nike guy. So it was pretty much the worst day ever for me.

Same here. I don't think there has been a day in the last 10+ years where I didn't wear or use a Nike product. I always thought they could and would outlast others because of the size of their bank accounts.

I have broken two of these drivers in two weeks. A crack right down the crown starting at the RZN. Anybody else having issues like that?

With your swing speed have you tried out the 8.5 degree setting? (couple months late) I have a similar speed and was wondering what the ball flight may have looked like for you.

The club has been quite a bomber and taken over the gamer role. but... mine lasted 3 weeks before splitting in two.

This was back in Sept and Nike told me there was nothing they could do other than having me send the club back for $150 gift card on Nike.com. Out of options I decided to fix it myself.  It's actually incredibly simple. The plastic back is jointed to the metal front with tongue and grove, and there was very little glue in the grove. I applied plenty of shaft epoxy and put it back together, and left it in a press with some light pressure for the epoxy to cure. 

 

I have had zero problem since.

This guy has been my gamer for the second half of the golf season -- I don't think my swing speed (100 or so) is enough to do any damage, but good to know it can be fixed.  I don't let @evershady hit mine, tho -- he has a 120 swing speed and he may make this thing disintegrate!

I wish my driver had just split like that, but unfortunately the back half of the RZN cracked completely in half. I miss this driver but I have found a suitable replacement in the Cobra F6+.
