LIVE Q&A w/ NIKE GOLF - Feb 7, 2013 - Read the Transcripts


Recommended Posts

i've had this window open on my computer for four hours so the same questions may have been asked... however :)

>through your custom department are you able to swing weight either the tour or performance drivers at sub 45" lengths - i.e. d3 at 44.5"?

>will tips be available to the public? if not will there be an option to purchase shafts only?

>what changes were made to the acoustics of the 20XI balls? speaking for myself - the best ball last year in performance, yet i didn't play it because of the sound/feedback...

>will there be a change to the combo/players cavity iron in 2013?

>with the addition of players like rory - how do you plan on selling equipment vs. apparel. saying this because the athletes bring such a focus to the apparel and perhaps less to the hard goods.

[size=4]How does the cavity not create arodynamic drag whic in turn will slow down club head speed?[/size]
[size=4]it kind of looks as though the cavity would creat an area of t[color=#222222]urbulence [/color][/size]
[size=4][color=#222222]Is the weight distribution effected by the cavity? [/color][/size]

Thank you for the opportunity Nike and GolfWRX.

My question is, having adjustable lofts achievable, do you think the progression in golf will be to have 1 driver, 1 fairway and 1 hybrid that can adjust on the fly based on the shot required and replace carrying 2-4 fairways/hybrids?

Thanks!

Love the Covert name, and since it is a Covert Q&A here it goes: I'm still a bit skeptical about adjustable clubs. Maybe I'm old school and mentally seem to play better with glued stuff. I really like the look of the new Covert line. How much can this adjustable sleeve, which seems the be all say all, help the lower hdcp golfer?

I too am also curious about ordering at a shorter length and proper SW for my game. Last question, when testing obviously you don't have competitors new stuff to compare against, so what drives the performance factor? Is barely beating last years stuff good enough for your design team?

Thanks, can't wait to try clubs AND ball.

edit: Our Nike rep told me goal is to have TW switch by Masters. Also told me custom length was fine to order but did not confirm SW...hence the question again above!

What clubs are Rory McIlroy using and what shafts are in his clubs. Also why did he swith from the black/yellow multicompound to black/white. Do you ever see him going back to the black/yellow. Thank you for your time.

For last year and the list looks similar for 2013... I must be honest, the custom fitting options in both the reps assortment and fitting carts was awful.
Is there any discussion on going back to a better demo program with more options for custom fitting accounts? I realize stock sales are the bulk of the product sales but it's difficult to show consumers how great your products/custom department actually are with such limited choices. To be more specific in 2012 there were 3 driver shafts in 1 flex and zero options for FW woods and hybrids.

I have heard the new flex loft tips will be available and I do hope it's true as that would help with above as well...

Thanks for taking the time answering all these questions

Thank you to GolfWRX and Nike for this opportunity!

My question is a little off; revolving the method putters. I have tried the Method 001 countless times and found it to be the truest rolling putter I have used. With that being said why do you feel the benefit would be to have a polymer insert vs a standard tuna milling for a premium putter line? What benefits come from the Polymer that I can not find in a traditional milled putter? Could I expect to see a traditional milled method in the future?

PS: If you would like to back up your claims I'd be more than happy to test your theories :smilie_nike:
