Reviews : Nike VRS Covert 2.0 Driver and RZN Ball Review
Posted on 12.03.2014

Team Awesome Golf had a chance to test the Nike VRS Covert 2.0 and the 2014 Nike RZN Golf Balls. Nike Golf packed so much technology into our hands it is truly unbelievable. Built for forgiveness and distance, the fly-brace technology stiffens the rear portion of the driver transferring more energy into the ball.

To the common golfer – You’re buying 15 drivers for the price of one. 

Another piece of technology that’s really understated from Nike Golf is the FlexLoft technology. “The FlexLoft adjustability system allows you to customize your loft and face angle positions independently of each other to optimize launch and spin conditions for maximum distance and accuracy.” 


What AGP likes about this adjustable hosel is the “eye at address test” regardless of configuration. We’ve experienced with other systems, we adjust the loft and it feels (or actually is) closed/open, lie angle is wrong – it just changes confidence at address.

What we liked:

1. Loved the candy apple red look on the driver (it does take some getting used to);

2. Muted and Powerful at impact;

3. The driver was extremely forgiving on off-centre hits – Distance of the tee is incredible; 

4. Sets-up with confidence regardless of loft adjustment – The FlexLoft technology is impressive.

What we would improve:

1. The standard Nike Tour Wrap white grip on the club doesn’t work. We would have preferred it to be a full cord/half-cord offering – not a big issue, change the grip at your local club fitter.

RZN Golf Balls

“RZN Platinum is designed to provide Tour performance with an emphasis on control and moderate spin while RZN Black is made for players who prefer Tour performance with an emphasis on less spin and distance. RZN Red is for those who desire distance performance with increased carry. RZN White is aimed at players with swing speeds between 95-100 mph who want distance performance with a softer feel.”

This is where the magic happens! It does work...

Confused? Let’s focus on what the golf ball does for the ordinary consumer – The Speedlock core technology increases energy transfer from the club to the ball, which equals more distance. Most touring pros maximize the energy transfer between layers of the ball, but you do not. Other benefits of the four new RZN balls: Nike says the lightweight core allows more weight to be moved to the perimeter of the ball, increasing stability. And a new coating on the outer surface is designed to grip the grooves for better control on wedge and iron shots.

The RZN balls are really good – it actually hurts that the AGP testers lost a couple of them in the pond. We would highly recommend that you go get a box. We particularly fell in love with the Black version. 

What we liked:

1. Great combination of distance off the tee and short game feel; 

2. No “clicky” feel with the RZN Balls. Definitely improved;

3. Durability on the cover of the balls is impressive. 

What we would improve:

1. Guide to fitting the RZN balls – 4 offerings does confuse golfers.
