Nike SQ SUMO2 5900 Driver Review
Nike engineers boast that the Nike SQ Sumo2 5900 pushes push the moment of inertia (MOI), volume and impact efficiency to the United States Golf Association limits. The 460cc club with a square titanium clubhead features lofts of 8.5 degrees through 11.5, 13 and HL 16. It comes standard with a Mitsubishi Diamana Yellow Board graphite shaft in senior, regular, stiff or extra stiff and Nike Tour Velvet Grip. Aldila VS Proto 65 Graphite and UST Proforce V2 Graphite shafts are also available. The club usually starts at $479, but you can find it with the price marked down as low as $149.
The Sumo2 5900's large head is certainly noticeable and a sure way not to miss the ball. Impact efficiency should increase, giving a golfer a better ball-striking ability. The head hitting the ball is loud and effective, and almost every shot will be straight. It's not the longest driver out there, and the player must also have the right flex shaft for their swing.
Despite the big clubhead, it's not a very long driver. It can be hit 275-plus yards, but it's not the longest driver on the market. This club can be a match for many different players who need a certain loft and shaft, but even with the numerous options, it still feels a bit limited because the club won't get as much distance as others in the same price range.
This Nike's an anyone-can-use-it club. The mass-produced driver is for the average golfer looking to get the most out of a tee shot that probably still needs work. There just are better clubs for the original asking price.
