    Covert Tour

    Matrix 7M3 Black Tie S

    45.5" by Nike's scale which is more like 45"

    I have to get it dialed in once it gets here but was getting great numbers at 9.5 Right on a couple different monitors.

    Should have it pretty soon. image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    Covert Performance

    Kuro Kage Silver 70g Stiff

    Ordered at 44.25", but I guess they measure it differently so it will be playing at less than 44"?



    Still waiting for it to be delivered to Fedex Office so I can pick it up.

    Hey guys,



    I had a one-hour session testing both Nike drivers, PING Anser and the new R1. The Nike w/ Tour head and KK Silver stiff 60g was the best one for me. My previous driver was a VR Pro 8'5 with PX 6,0.



    The VR's averages was 3999 rpm spin, launch 16, carry about 210m and incl. roll 227m. 36m dispersion sideways (left-right) smash 1,43. 25 shots total



    Covert 9,5 neutral: 2550 rpm spin, launch 13,5, carry 235m and incl. roll 252m. 13(!)m dispersion sideways. Smash 1,46. Don't remember BS but I think avg. was in the mid 150's. 27 shots total. Best shot went to 272 meters.



    Needless to say, I bought it. However I can probably not play outdoors with for another 3 months since there is plenty of snow here in central Sweden and more coming in. It felt really good to me though and hey, it's only money image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> also this is only the second time i play this winter/season so I guess Those numbers can improve a bit.



    My avg. clubhead speed was 106 mph and I have a fairly fast tempo. +1,5atk angle. 177 cms tall and tried standard length. Trackman was set to 0m elevation, 75% humidity, 26 degrees C.



    Sorry about the metric system! I think you can take meters x 1,1 and get yardage but not entirely sure.

    Don't apologize. It's our stupidity for using this ancient system.

    Wow, I love how many people are ordering custom shafts and lengths!



    Those of you who ordered a custom shaft, would you mind posting how much the UPCHARGE was? Only the upcharge portion, so that we protect the store that you purchased from.



    Thanks!

    GG upcharge rate is insane I have found compared to others. I think I am going to ask for a bit of a refund actually. 300 upcharge for 7M3 and 470 for Kiyoshi white... Whut?

    I've decided after last night (I hit every driver.... again), I have to order the Tour version.



    Question: Has anyone ordered through Nikegolf.com and requested custom length?





    Also, I noticed there is a seller on the Bay offering the Tour head with Matrix 6Q3 "Red Tie" for $599 (any flex and length). How does that shaft compare to the Kuro Kage Silver 60? From what I've read, they seem similiar but the Matrix usually retails for an additional $300??

    1. I was just at my local golf store and tried out the covert tour for the first time, 60g kuro kage in stiff. I tried it against the titleist 913. I'm usually 260 yds with a few good ones at 275-280 yds with the 913. When i hit the covert, i was averaging 270-285 yds and a few good ones at 300 plus. I'm very skeptical of simulators but I gotta say the covert reallly really surprised me, i have never hit that far before. It felt really solid when you catch it on the sweet spot. I am very close to ordering one.

    Talked to Bobby Ennia tonight and I just added an Attas 3 X to the quiver for this baby. Really excited for the shootout between it and the 7M3.

    Just got to hit the Covert Tour with KK Silver 70X and must say its very nice. I first hit the KK Silver in the 60S and didn't love it but now that I got mine in and tweaked it, it's nice.



    BTW I have the RIP Beta 70X with the adapter on order...



    I ended up setting mine to 10.5

    I don't remember the exact amount, but it was around $1650. I know that's crazy to spend that much on woods, but it's been a long winter and I needed something to lift my spirits. I am replacing a vr limited with a Accra tour z, and tour edge cb3 3 and 5 wood.




    That price is from discount dans

    Not sure why everyone bags on the head cover...I would much rather have this toned down, classy looking cover than some neon green thing. I don't feel the need to advertise to everyone I play with what I have in my bag.

    I'll be getting the covert bag as a graduation gift this summer. I have seen it in person and its real nice. Once that comes in I'm gonna keep extra shafts, putters and woods in the 20XI bag.

    For the life of me, I can't find a list of custom shafts available, but it seems like you guys aren't just ordering them blind. Have you found a fitting cart, or just going off what you know you already like? I contacted GG near me and they don't have anything in house other than the stock shafts. Any ideas in NJ where to hit multiple shafts?

    I live in Northern NJ.



    Call Tappan Golf, they are a high-end fitter that has demos of all the premium shafts (Fujikura, Mitsubishi, Oban, Graphite Design, etc.). I'm not sure if they received their Covert demo heads yet, last time I checked was a few weeks ago.
