The Nike VR S Driver is an improvement on the Machspeed Black as it now incorporates the STR8-Fit adjustable hosel that has been refined to be less obtrusive at address, which is a welcome change.

The 8 settings give a wide range of influence on shot shape as they change the face angle, but not unfortunately the lie of the club.

The VR S driver head is more rounded and a little taller and the sole uses a modified version of the aerodynamic sole from the Machspeed to increase clubhead speed. It makes sense and also looks good.At address the colour scheme features a silver face and shaft which does create a nice contrast to line up, even if the graphics could do with some more work.

On the course the sound and feel of the VR S driver was very good although this is by no means a quiet driver, but at least the sound is more pleasant than piercing.

Overall the VR S is a very competent driver and worth trying if you want a value for money adjustable driver.

Collected my R1 last Thursday, have spent a few hours up the range with the club since and I'm lost for words to describe how good this club is. I'm a high handicapper and with all the tuning options on this club I've been able to find a setting that combats the slice I have off the tee. This club inspires confidence, even a strike from nearer the heel or toe still carries good distance. This is a must buy for any golfer, I've tried the new Nike VR Covert and in comparison the TaylorMade offers so much more for the money.
