Get Some Sunglasses For The Nike Vapor Fly Driver
Loud. Showy. Flashy. Terms such as these ones are typically reserved for sports such as Ultimate Fighting, Pro Wrestling or even NBA basketball. For golf, these terms seem somewhat incongruous. When is the last time a golfer beat their chest, pointed to the sky and did a birdie dance after canning a 20 footer? Well, probably on the local muni yesterday but the point is valid about golf etiquette and the staid nature of the sport. For historical accuracy, it is worth noting that golfwear from 1970’s was the exception to the general rule. Bring the bling, the Nike Vapor Fly Driver is here.
The Vapor Fly driver is a brightly colored club that stands out like a kangaroo in the water hazard. Staring down at the bright blue crown with a neon lime-green Nike swoosh is simply too much for for some players. Putting on a pair of sunglasses will help golfers get past the loud colors and get to the performance they are seeking. Nike engineers created the crown in a symmetrical C-shape for stability and reduced the weight by 30% to move the center of gravity lower in the club. Increasing the launch angle is the key to the Vapor Fly’s performance. Nate Ratcliffe, Director of Engineering explains, “we’ve verified that if we can launch the ball higher, while managing spin, it will ultimately fly farther”.
The Vapor Fly Flex Lofts are is 8.5, 9.5, 10.5, 11.5 and 12.5 deg. Pair the Vapor Fly head with a choice of 18 different shafts for for the exact fit and trajectory. The Vapor Fly Pro version is also available and features more work ability and lower spin. PGA Tour player Rory McIlroy’s drives are one of the strongest parts of his game and he happens to be using the Nike Vapor Fly driver. And he probably already has sunglasses too.
