  1. good job- FWIW, real world numbers- so everyone is on the same page-
    Average carry at Humana last week was 265- on Callaway driving grid- total
    drive w/rollout average according to sir dick faldo was 277, for all
    players, …..in the desert, no wind! Longest 2 balls on Thursday were
    285, and 289, rollout of 305, and 298. Ishikawa and Jonahthan Vegas- look
    it up on VCR. 300 yd carries on a golf course require over 122 SS.
    Balls regularly roll out 30-70 yards, making a 265 shot, end up 295+, up
    to 335 minimum. As a mater of fact, Rory nailed a drive 284, no wind,
    down the fairway- in Dubai last week, rarely carried his drives over 290.
    Look it up! BTW, 3 longest on tour last 10 years were Hank Kuehne,
    Victor Schamkrugg, and T. Finau. Look it up!
    LDA is another sport- minimum SS of 135- 152 mph. Look it up! Jamie
    Sadlowski & Zubak among thousands of LDA’ers can carry it 380 regularly!

  2. Whenever I use the trackman at the golf stores it’s always over-inflating
    my distances. I’ll be told 305 when in reality I’m hitting 275 max on the
    course using ProV1x or Penta. 

  3. the covert driver was significantly longer in the video…I’m just a
    beginner so correct me if I’m wrong, but shouldn’t that make a difference

  4. I have the Covert and trimmed the shaft from 45 3/4 to 44 1/4. Most
    reliable and predictable driver I have ever used. Previous drivers were
    Titleist 910 and Nike SQ ’09. My distance usually falls between 255-270
    yards straight or slight fade. Couldn’t be happier. 

  5. Pretty funny, the guy is hitting it 300+ and people are trying to give him
    tips. About 1-2% of all golfers can hit it that far. Not to mention he was
    hitting it really straight too.

  6. I’m confused Rick. Just watched your comparison video between the Covert &
    Covert tour and they averaged 250yrds but here it’s averaging 300yrds.
    Because it’s a longest drive comp are you trying harder or has the
    monitoring equipment you used changed?

  7. How do you hit the ball as straight as you do and with the power that you
    hit it with? I tend to hit a pretty bad slice and so I usually have to aim
    to the left of the fairway when i tee off so that when it slices it will
    slice back onto the fairway instead of slicing out of bounds. I was hitting
    today at a couple golf shops and I was hitting about 215 yards and I was
    thinking that with me being a bigger guy I should be able to hit it at
    least 250+.

  8. The 322 screwed up the avg. I think the Nike is the overall most
    consistent with distance at 300+ but the RBZ is more consistent flying
    straight, so pick your poison distance over control

  9. you need to make a non-biased review about drivers… take a short rest
    break between clubs so you are able to get max power on the SECOND club for

  10. Good video, thanks! Currently looking at both drivers, so it was great for
    me. I think I am going with the Nike as I really like the look of it. The
    red is sweet!

  11. I was leaning towards the RBZ before watching this vid, but you let the
    Covert down with a poor last drive at the end there so I’m now looking into
    the Covert as an option.

  12. @golfninja

    Yes I am aware as I am a golf professional. My angle of attack may be
    steep, I have not looked at it yet. I thought maybe my smash factor was low
    but it is actually very close to max and is very consistent as well. The
    same goes for my centeredness of contact. 

  13. Rick, good testing. Maybe expand your group to 6 good shots. That would be
    more statistically meaningful. Also, I would suggest using an “efficiency”
    calculation. Yardage/mph club speed. R1 2.728 Anser 2.747 Covert 2.911 RBZ
    2 2.828 G25 2.715 Razr 2.659 X-hot 2.743 Cobra 2.618

  14. This is why you should ALWAYS get fitted for the driver. I swung all four,
    both none tour and tour of each. I hit both of the Nike’s like crap and
    even at contact it felt horrible. I ended up getting RBZ2 standard head
    (tour added nothing) with XS tour-shaft, they even had one with the 1/2″
    cut off that I tried, and swung the best. Ball-speed, Consistency on
    contact and feel for me was RBZ2 hands down. I went wanting to buy the
    Nike, I am so glad I got fitted.

  15. Also after reading some of the other comments about the skeptical number I
    would say that he has the setting in the Flight Scope set for down wind and
    firm conditions to make it look like he is a long knocker. Nice try though

  16. rbz is better. he covert is not accurate even on tiger woods and rory
    mcilroy, if you watch golf you can see that tiger is not playing with the
    driver but with a 3 wood even on a par 5.
