Nike Square Driver Review

By Jim Hagerty

Specs

The new (2009) Nike SQ Dymo Series drivers, with their Tiger Woods endorsement, boasts a unique, square head and a more traditional rounder club. Each is coupled with its signature front-loaded center of gravity. This, Nike claims, helps increase club speed and reduces spin, resulting in penetrating ball flights. The Dymo series comes in five degrees of loft (8.5, 9.5, 10.5, 11.5 and HL) and available in left-handed models. Clubs are fitted with stock lightweight graphite shafts, core tipped for solid and fast contact.

Perks

Players looking to keep shots straight off the tee will like the square technology of the SQ drivers. Clubs are nicely-weighted and forgiving. Shafts are carefully-fitted while grips are soft and comfortable. The clubs set up nicely, despite its seemingly awkward shape, which is only daunting at first glance. The Nike SQ Dymo STR8-FIT model contains an easily removable shaft, allowing for loft changes to accommodate course conditions and a variety of swing patterns.

Sacrifices

While the SQ drivers are top-notch, the square technology does impede shot-shaping off the tee, making draws and fades a bit difficult. This may have some advance players opting to stick with traditional round or tear-drop shaped drivers.

Bottom Line

Nike SQ drivers are all-around performers. Their solid titanium construction and unique face are trusted among pros and amateurs. Clubs are precisely-crafted and far from as daunting at they look. Bottom line: The SQ Dymo line is priced right (Between $200 and $400 depending on the retailer) and highly versatile.
