Hey everyone,

Some new equipment news, Nike Golf just had a couple of new drivers hit the USGA conforming list - the VAPOR line of drivers... not much details on it yet, but there should be about 3 or 4 driver offerings including a VAPOR PRO (tour model?)... and possibly a VAPOR FLEX DRIVER... One cool thing is that they're bringing back the Compression Channel from the VR PRO series of equipment a while back. 



Even Rory has been seen testing this new driver at Gleneagles, ahead of the Ryder Cup! Check it out:

LOL! Good analogy! It's similar to the Callaway Gravity Core, but instead of shifting the CG vertically, it shifts the CG horizontally.. pretty cool, here's a photo of the other VAPOR drivers that will be available in 2015:

And you might want to hear the sound it makes when RORY hits this thing!! unreal!!

The one with the butt plug must be expensive. Sounds nice in the video though, and I like how the crown is black rather than red.

Yes, very fierce looking indeed! Callaway's Big Bertha looks like Robocop or Ironman ... This one looks like Transformer ... I agree with TDO ... Bwahahaha ...  Rory is test driving this newbie in the Ryder Cup ...

The driver looks to be well made from the pics, especially the Vapor flex. Generally I found Nike drivers to be well made, hopefully they do it right again this time.

I tried the Callaway Big Bertha. Unfortunately it's not suitable for me. My old trusty Callaway Diablo Octance serve me better. I like the look of the Green Nike Vapor. It sure looks intimidating  Very Happy

Anyone noticed how Nike has moved away from Victory Red to Irish Green?

What does that mean? From Tiger's Sunday red to Rory's Irish colour?

But the "volt" yellow seems quite different to "Irish Green" leh (to my eye at least).

Just a thought: if Tiger switches to the Vapor series, Nike could easily do a custom Victory Red version for him (a la Bubba's pink G30)...

I think Nike's Vapor soccer boots also uses same color scheme. Even the series name (Vapor) is similar
