"I've never found a 3-wood that I'm real comfortable with. The 588 MT 2-iron is a lot more accurate off the tee, and I can still have the trajectory of a 3-wood."

The updated Covert Cavity has FlyBeam supports that stiffen the head, making it more stable at impact for improved energy transfer into the ball. In addition, a compression channel along the sole combines with the Covert Cavity for more face flex and increased ball speed on misses. A more forward CG decreases spin while maintaining MOI and forgiveness on off-center hits. The redesigned adjustable hosel provides 15 launch and shot-bias combinations and is 30% lighter than the previous hosel. The settings permit loft adjustments between 8.5° and 12.5°. Rory McIlroy, Francesco Molinari and Jhonattan Vegas are some of the pros using Vapor Pro on Tour. $400.
