Nike Sumo² 5900 Driver Reviews

By Eric Cornelison


The Nike Sumo² 5900 driver has pushed the moment of inertia (MOI), volume and efficiency to the limits of what U.S. Golf Association rules allow. This squared driver has a convex crown and much deeper face than most drivers, increasing ball speed off impact and allowing the ball to fly more accurately. The face of the club is multi-layered from corner to corner, allowing faster ball speed off every part of the face and providing more distance even on off-center hits. The Aldila, Nike or UST brand shaft can be provided with a senior, regular, stiff or extra-stiff flex shaft, along with a Nike rubber composition grip for comfort. Though Nike has since exited the club manufacturing industry, the Sumo²  5900 is still available on the secondary market. 


It has a nice, firm sound during contact and a good feel through impact. The ball flight is a medium height, and the launch angle slowly increases, giving you more carry distance than you might be used too. Very little distance is lost on mishits.



It is hard to tell when you mishit the ball because all contact feels the same. It does not help your slice or hook; you will have to figure that out yourself.


Bottom Line

It's a nice driver to add to your bag and comfortable with no real distractions such as sound or weird alignment aids. Nike has improved this driver from its 5000 model.
