Nike Vapor Fly Hybrid
Forgiving yet sleek
Words: Daniel Owen
The Vapor Fly Hybrid was completely redesigned for 2016. Let’s call it the Blue Meanie Jnr.
Working with Nike athlete Francesco Molinari, Nike Golf engineers created a hybrid with a refined, tour-driven profile to maximise versatility and improve shot making.
The Flightweight Crown features a 30 percent reduction in crown weight vs. 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 springboard effect to amplify performance on mis-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.
It features an authentic tour head shape for forgiveness and workability in a true iron replacement design.
It’s shafted with a Mitsubishi Rayon Tensei CK Blue 80H shaft and features a Golf Pride Z-Grip.
RRP is £149
