Nickent 3DX Square Driver Reviews

By Jim Hagerty

Specs

The Nickent 3DX driver is a square, 460cc titanium driver, the predecessor to the 4DX line. The 3DX is stocked with a UST Proforce shaft and is available in a tour model. Both are equipped with four sole weights near the toe and heel. The line was manufactured using Nickent's Total Accuracy Control technology, meant to help a variety of players maximize distance and keep the ball in the fairway. The line is similar to the square drivers made by Nike. The 3DX is available with 9, 10.5 and 12 degrees of loft.

Perks

While Nickent isn't a common brand among touring professionals, the 3DX is capable of challenging any driver on the market. Its large titanium face delivers a forgiving hitting area and enlarged sweet spot. Working the ball is relatively easy and ball flights are rarely lofty. The Proforce shafts and sole weights make this driver extremely fun to hit.

Sacrifices

As a performer, the Nickent 3DX is a solid club. It is, however, an economy driver. Shaft installations might not be precise, making stress fractures common. When this occurs, distance and workability are lost and re-shafting must be done.

Bottom Line

For the money, about $200 (2009), the Nickent 3DX is an acceptable driver, capable of some booming, long drives. In the quality department, there are better clubs out there. For players on a budget, a well-tested club can be a suitable addition to the bag.
