Nike Vapor Fly Fairway Wood
Small and adjustable
Words: Daniel Owen
Already in play on tour, this time round Nike have only felt the need to produce one fairway wood. Let’s call this model the Little Blue Meanie!
The Vapor Fly Fairway Wood uses Nike’s tour favoured head shape with upgraded technology to drive performance. Utilising the same technology found within the drivers, the club features an extremely thin and light Flightweight Crown to move weight lower for a higher launch angle, with less spin.
The Flightweight Crown features a 30 percent reduction in crown weight versus last year’s model, resulting in a lower centre of gravity and higher MOI for higher launch, less spin, and more forgiveness.
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 re-engineered Compression Channel enables a springboard effect to amplify performance on miss hits.
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.
The FlexLoft Fairway hosel offers the unique ability to adjust loft and lie angle independently, offering six individual settings in each of five models to achieve optimal flight, more distance and enhanced workability.
It features the Nike athlete favoured authentic tour shape for forgiveness and workability.
It’s shafted with either a Mitsubishi Rayon MRC Tensei CK Blue 65F or a Diamana S+ Blue Board 70.
RRP is £179
