Nike SQ Dymo STR8-FIT Drivers
Released in 2009, the Nike SQ Dymo STR8-FIT Drivers are almost identical to the original Nike SQ Dymos. Except that the STR8-FITs are adjustable golf clubs, featuring Nikes unique STR8-FIT Technology.
This method differs from the TaylorMade technology which involves manipulating weights in the club head. The Nike STR8-FIT Drivers feature the STR8-FIT shaft adapter and hosel system.
It may sound complicated but this is actually quite a user friendly system, and isn't that difficult to use. A wrench comes with the club, and this is what you use to loosen and re-attach the head onto the shaft in the position that you desire.
This system gives you a choice of 8 different head positions and ball flights. This is a great system as it allows players to counteract a fade or draw bias without having to take a lot of lessons or make changes in their swing.
The lofts available for the Nike SQ Dymo STR8-FIT drivers are 8.5, 9.5, 10.5, 11.5 and 13 degrees. With the 9.5, 10.5, and 11.5 being available in left and right hand.
The Nike UST Proforce AXIV shaft available for this club comes in three weights, 59, 69 and 79 grams. In our trials we tested the 10.5 degree model, and opted for the 69g shaft which seemed to give the club a nice overall weight, however the other shaft options are of course available.
So on to performance, and the club really does what it says on the tin. The scale of results varied a tad from player to player but when you adjust for a draw, you do get a draw and it was the same for a fade.
You can have lots of fun on the range trying out lots of different head positions with this Driver. Even if you aren't a player who likes to adjust your equipment, you will still probably get some enjoyment out of trialling with this club.
Although TaylorMade's adjustable technology is still very effective in its own right. We definitely preferred the Nike STR8-FIT Technology, it was easier and quicker to use than with adjusting weights in some modern TaylorMade Driver heads.
Obviously accuracy will depend on your adjustment of the head position but in terms of distance, both Drivers perform identically to their Nike SQ Dymo and Nike SQ Dymo 2 non adjustable counter-parts, which we also have on review.
The price has also come down since initial release, 2012 prices for the adjustable Nike SQ Dymo STR8-FIT Drivers are generally around £110 or $175.
Remember though that it is like having 8 clubs in just 1 for your money.
