Martin Hopley

The Nike VR_S Covert Hybrid is the best of the Covert range of woods. We love the red colour of the generous sized head although the white swoosh gets in the way for us.

There is a slight offset on the hosel at address, but not too much to put you off. If anything the sweep of the silver around the red probably accentuates the offset to appear more than it is.

The head is reasonably sized for a hybrid but it is the height of the club that we liked as this gives a large deep face that will suit mid to high handicap golfers.

This is a very easy club to hit and the trajectory is a good mid height flight. It sounded good even if the feel was a little on the dull side, which could be a result of the cavity on the back of the head. Nike claim the head offers more forgiveness on lower hits on the face and certainly the VR_S Covert hybrid did get the thinner strikes up into the air very well.

Much has been made of this cavity back design and it's hard to say whether it benefits or not, but the bottom line is that the Nike VR_S Covert Hybrid does the job well without shouting about it too much.
