Aslan Golf Introduces the Nike Golf VR X3X Toe Sweep Wedges
Whether it’s high rough or wet grass, difficult lies or daunting bunkers, Nike Golf craftsmen and engineers at The Oven have created the solution for the toughest of short game shots- the new VR X3X Toe Sweep wedges.
Over the course of five years, the Nike Golf team prototyped, analyzed and tested a range of functional sole ideas before landing on an innovative design that makes it significantly easier to hit out of the toughest lies from anywhere around the green. A wider sole area toward the toe and a relieved heel ensure versatility around the greens and make it easier for golfers to hit out of the bunker. Improved X3X groove technology delivers a more consistent shot in any condition, better ball flight and superior stopping power on the green.
“We built the VR X3X Toe Sweep wedges from the ground up,” said Mike Taylor, Nike Golf Master Modelmaker. “Our Tour athletes have told us that the toe side of the sole is most critical in bunker performance. In a bunker shot, these new wedges are carefully crafted to provide bounce relative to the path of the club head. Around the green, our athletes ask for material to be ground away from the heel to aid open-face versatility–and we’ve done that with this new design.”
The toe-sweep sole is an innovative combination that blends the best attributes of several of Nike’s most functional grinds. The VR X3X Toe Sweep wedges perform like a wide sole from the bunker, but slide through the tightest lies around the green with ease.
Included in the VR X3X line are the Tour-validated Dual Wide sole wedges, which have a wide “c-shaped” grind with heel and toe relief, making it extremely easy to launch the ball high with maximum spin.
Nike’s X3X groove technology features grooves that are closer together and deeper on the clubface. Nike Golf engineers made the X3X grooves wider to create a new X3X 27 groove design for the VR X3X line of wedges. The enhanced design improves spin consistency for more precision when approaching the green.
Both VR X3X wedges feature a satin chrome finish, Dynamic Gold Wedge shafts and Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grips.
Aslan Golf Introduces the Odyssey Versa Jailbird and Sabertooth Putters
The Odyssey Versa Jailbird Putter is another prime example of how Odyssey continue to push convention to make the most important part of your game easier. They have taken the next step in high contrast alignment with Double Versa Technology that highlights the face angle at address, through the stroke and at impact.
By packing in more technology to the black and white contrast, your eyes will focus in on the linear designs even further to accentuate face angle, improve concentration and most importantly, to drain more putts.
It’s a big step up in Tour proven, major winning Versa technology, and if you followed Versa’s performance on Tour last year, you understand why this is such a huge accomplishment. By adding an additional high contrast alignment stripe, its never been easier to align your putter.
The Odyssey Versa Sabertooth Putter features Peak Stability Design, the Dual Fangs position the majority of the clubhead’s weight to the perimeter to increase MOI, making it one of the most stable putters Odyssey have ever made. Aiming channels help align the putter to the intended target for better alignment.
High contrast alignment highlights the proper face angle from address to impact for alignment throughout your putting stroke. Black and white contrast allows your eyes to focus in on linear designs on the putter to accentuate the face angle and improve concentration.
Both models of putters, along with the entire Odyssey Versa range, have the number one putter insert on tour. That pretty much says it all. The new and improved version of the #1 insert on Tour is highly engineered for more consistent sound, feel and performance across the striking surface. It’s an insert that’s dominated for years, and now it’s better than ever.
An Odyssey Putter is a promise made. They design each of their putters to help you slay more demons and sink more putts. But they also design them to withstand any kind of punishment you can dish out and they back them up with an Odyssey assurance of quality. They rarely see a putter returned, but if you find a defect within a two-year period, they will repair it or replace it. No questions asked. And that's a promise kept.
The enire range of Odyssey Versa Putters are in stock now at Aslan Golf.

Aslan Golf Introduces the Nike Golf Sport Lite Carry Stand Bag 2014
Golfers are always striving to keep their numbers low, and Nike Golf designers took that same approach when it came to creating the new Nike Sport Lite carry bag. Weighing less than four pounds, the Nike Sport Lite is Nike Golf’s lightest carry bag ever.
Nike’s proprietary EquaFlex revolving double strap system, which distributes bag weight evenly across the shoulders through an ergonomic design, brings much more comfort to the often tiring task of carrying a bag around the course. A five-way, two full-length divider system with putter well maximizes club visibility and organization.
The Nike Sport Lite bag, available in six colors, features the storage space serious golfers need without any of the added weight. Six fleece-lined functional pockets, including a full length apparel pocket, provide enough space for golfers to be prepared on the course without creating extra bulk.
Aslan Golf Introduces the Nike Golf Performance II Cart Bag 2014
The new Performance Cart Bag, a premium golf bag designed to accomodate every item golfers might need during a round. With 19 pockets throughout the bag, 13 external and six internal, there is a specific place for everything.
A signature feature of Nike Golf's newest bag is the Nike Flip & Grip water-resistant pocket, which provides simple strapping to the trolley or cart and a convenient additional pocket for valuables. In addition, the Flip & Grip houses an easily accessible exterior range finder pocket. Other features of the bag include a large insulated cooler pocket for beverages and two apparel pockets with additional internal pouches to prevent smaller items from dropping from the bottom of the bag.
“Our focus for the Performance Cart Bag was to design a highly functional bag that allows golfers to conveniently access all equipment and accessories whether using a trolley or power cart,” says Mark Alan, Nike Golf Global Product Director. “With 19 organizational pockets, all items are readily available and no golfer will feel unprepared.”
Aslan Golf Introduces the Nike Covert 2.0 Drivers
Bigger, faster and longer than last year’s industry game-changing VRS Covert drivers, the world’s first to feature conforming High Speed Cavity Back technology, the new VRS Covert 2.0 drivers deliver more forgiving distance, faster ball speed and simple, intuitive customization to meet the swing needs of every athlete. High-Speed Cavity Back technology redistributes weight to the heel and toe allowing for increased distance and more stability across the face of the driver.
“We re-engineered the VRS Covert 2.0 with enhancements to our High Speed Cavity Back technology that allow athletes to experience more forgiving distance than ever before,” says Nate Radcliffe, Nike Golf Director of Engineering. “The new VRS Covert 2.0 driver features a redesigned cavity with Fly-Brace technology that ties the sole to the crown. By stiffening the rear portion of the club, more energy is transferred to the face at impact. The end result is even greater ball speed and up to six yards of distance gain over last year’s model.”
“It’s similar to an automotive frame design,” Radcliffe adds. “Fly-Brace technology reinforces the rearward portion of the club head to focus impact stress, flexing and subsequent energy transfer to the point of impact.”
The redesigned NexCOR face incorporates variable face thickness for a faster, hotter face and as a result, more speed at impact. It is 15-percent larger in the VRS Covert 2.0 Tour driver and seven-percent larger in the VRS Covert 2.0 driver.
The second generation of Mitsubishi Rayon’s Kuro Kage shafts are the standard graphite option for both models. In the VRS Covert 2.0 Tour, the Kuro Kage Silver 60 graphite, featuring Titanium Nickel fiber in the tip section, creates more stability and lower spin. The VRS Covert 2.0 utilizes the Kuro Kage Black HBP Graphite 50 shaft with a higher balance point, allowing for higher swing speeds without adding shaft length.
Both VRS Covert 2.0 Models are in stock now at Aslan Golf
Aslan Golf Introduces the Nike Golf Lightweight Innovation Colour Polo 2014
Most golfers have done it at one time or another: Just before hitting a shot, they give a quick pull on the polo sleeve to adjust the shoulder seam. Nike Golf apparel designers took that distracting habit head-on to create the mobility chassis, a new seam construction that allows for optimal movement featured in the Lightweight Innovation Color Polo.
The shoulder seam in Nike’s Lightweight Innovation Color polo is bonded rather than stitched to lie more closely against the body. Designers shifted the seam towards the upper back so it doesn’t run across the top of the shoulders, allowing maximized movement throughout the swing, free of distractions.
“We focused on a design that fits the shoulder and upper back through a lighter, more athletic construction,” said Merritt Richardson, Nike Golf VP of Global Golf Apparel. “Our Tour athletes know how apparel fits their bodies and they notice every little detail. The Lightweight Innovation Color polo is an athlete-driven, modern design that gives golfers freedom of movement with zero distractions.”
The Lightweight Innovation Color polo also features armholes that are bonded for a smoother surface that is incredibly lightweight and lies flatter against the skin for a more comfortable fit. A sleek, bonded placket and laser-cut pocket help reduce weight by eliminating bulk.
The Lightweight Innovation Color Polo which features a bold color blocking design is available in a variety of colourways now at Aslan Golf, with a new colour coming later in the year.
Aslan Golf Introduces the Nike Golf RZN Golf Balls
For the second time in three years, Nike Golf is transforming golf ball technology with another industry-first. Building on the success of the game-changing 20XI ball and RZN core technology, Nike Golf is unveiling its innovative Speedlock RZN core technology and adding four golf balls to the new RZN franchise– RZN Platinum, RZN Black, RZN Red and RZN White—designed to deliver more distance, better feel and a more consistent, stable ball flight than ever before.
Nike’s proprietary Speedlock RZN core technology features an interlocking core design – the core’s surface is similar to that of a waffle iron – that interconnects with the compression layer to form a tighter bond and helps promote better energy transfer through the layers at impact. Similar to how snow tires utilize aggressive treads to bond with a road surface, the Speedlock core’s interlocking geometry helps eliminate the slipping that normally occurs between a traditional, smooth-surface core and the outer layer. When a core slides or slips on impact, the ball loses energy and as a result, speed and distance. Speedlock Technology helps to harness more energy between layers for faster ball speed, longer distance and more stability into the wind.
A new spin-optimized coating on the outer surface of the ball helps grip the grooves for better control on wedge and iron shots. The coating, in addition to a softer cover and softer compression in the core, also helps provide improved sound and feel, especially on off-center shots.
The Nike RZN franchise have launched four versions of the new ball:
- RZN Platinum: Tour Performance control and moderate spin
- RZN Black: Tour Performance distance and less spin
- RZN Red: Distance Performance, longer carry
- RZN White: Distance Performance and softer feel for a wide range of swing speeds
More distance, softer feel, less spin, more spin – there’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to golf balls. That’s the idea behind the new Nike RZN Recommender, a digital tool that helps golfers find the RZN golf ball.
