Solid feel on shots. Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage 60 graphite shaft is stock and performs well but tons of custom shafts are available to suit your game.

Pros: 

Look at the Nike VR_S Covert 2 series driver and it's clear the design deviates from that of the traditional club head. To preserve the club's compact size, designers took weight from the sole (creating a wide cavity) and moved it to the heel and toe to increase the moment of inertia (MOI). More MOI means more energy is transferred from the club head to the golf ball, which means off-center hits still go a long way.

The dual-axis hosel allows the loft and face angle to be adjusted independently. Each loft setting features three face-angle positions.

Distance-wise, this driver is long. And the Nike VR_S Covert 2 increases the forgiveness over last years model, which means more shots will find the short grass.

Big improvement over past models—a great sound through the ball; powerful and solid; the entire head seems to be engaged in the strike as the ball shoots off the face.

Mid- to high-trajectory flight with consistent launch angle. The club wants to go straight but can be worked in either direction with the proper swing; fairly easy to turn over and draw.

Cons: 

Mainly the concerns here are aesthetics. The look of the club at address may take a little getting used too.

Summary: 

Overall, the Nike VR_S Covert 2 Driver is a solid performer, long off the team and works really hard to keep your ball in the fairway. The high MOI driver means more distance off mishits but you do have to get used to the look of the non-traditional head. But shedding strokes off your game should help with that.
