Nike Vapor Flex 440 Driver
Black and Blue
Words: Daniel Owen
The Nike Vapour Flex 440 is the most adjustable driver Nike have made, with it’s FlexFlight weight cartridge, spin can be increased or decreased as desired. Let’s call this model the Baddest Blue Meanie!
More than 60 percent of the club is built from carbon fiber reinforced RZN, a proprietary material that Nike uses in both clubs and golf balls. RZN is an extremely light, yet strong material that allows for even more weight to be repositioned forward and down for adjustability and forgiveness.
The new RZN body construction makes up over 60 percent of the driver saving loads of weight to allow for adjustability, with increased stability.
The new HyperFlight face is thinned out around the perimeter to produce extreme ball speed across the entire face for better performance on off-centre hits.
The FlexFlight technology features a RZN tube with a high-density weight on one end — flipping the tube allows golfers to further optimise launch conditions by impacting launch angle, spin rate, forgiveness and workability.
A re-engineered Compression Channel enables a springboard effect to amplify performance on mis-hits. What does this mean? Bad shots will fly further,
The FlyBeam Reinforced Covert Cavity Back dramatically stiffens the clubhead while redistributing weight to the heel and toe for maximum impact efficiency, tuned acoustics and forgiveness.
FlexLoft 2.0 adjustable hosel technology gives the athlete the functionality of five lofts at three face angles for a total of 15 different settings for optimal flight, more distance and enhanced workability.
It’s shafted with Mitsubishi Rayon Diamana S+ Limited 60 shaft that features a kevlar section under the grip, and a Golf Pride Z-Grip.
RRP is £379
