Nike drivers (going all the back to the Ignite) have really hot faces. The ball explodes off the face better than any other manufacturer I've seen.
This 2011 VR Pro is the second generation of this driver whose claim to fame is the compression channel at the bottom. This compression channel is Nike's unique design that makes the bottom of the club more forgiving when you miss-hit the ball low.
The other big feature of the driver is the STR8-FIT technology that allows you to adjust the face to 32 different positions. (It used to be just 8, hence the name STR8-FIT. Thus, it should be called the STR32-FIT. Not exactly the same ring to it.)
Nike has really improved the look of this driver over last year's model. First, the adjustable hosel is more disguised. On last year's club, it was gaudy and ugly. They've also made the shape more traditional.
I find this driver very easy to work the ball, left and right, high and low. However, the sound is not pleasing. Don't get me wrong; it's not as annoying as the loud tinks of those old Sumos and Sasquatches, but it certainly isn't as muted as what I expect from a tour driver. Also, the feel leaves a lot to be desired. There is not much feed back on mishits. Having said that, mishits fly high and far as if they were hit on the screws.
