Nike makes some of the most underrated products on the market and hopefully this year they will get some of the credit they deserve! I’ll admit that I am not a fan of their Straight-fit Technology and it never belonged on their VR Tour Driver. Nike wised up this fall and decided to leave behind the adjustable technology and put out a driver that flat out performs! The new VR Pro limited edition driver is a classic pear shaped driver head that is designed to offer tour level distance and workability. The VR Pro features Nike’s patented Compression Channel technology for a heightened MOI and explosive ball speeds across the entire hitting surface. The driver is offered in 8.5*, 9.5*, and 10.5* and comes equipped with a a Mitsubishi Diamana Ahina graphite shaft. The VR Pro Limited Edition driver is set to ship in early November and as the name states, quantities will be limited!

I had a chance to check out the new Nike lineup for next year and I walked away very impressed. The new irons look stunning and the revised SQ Machspeed Black Round Driver is sleek and sexy. For the average player looking for more forgiveness and distance with their driver but still want it to look somewhat traditional, this club is for you. The look at address inspires confidence at address and many golfers will appreciate the that face sits close to square. I say close because the driver does set up a bit closed to my eye but that will help keep your ball out of the right rough. For those that do not like this angle, it can of course be easily changed thanks to Nike’s Str8-Fit Technology. The stealthy black finish frames the ball quite nicely at address and I love that the face features the same finish as the sole and crown. The aerodynamics of this club head have been improved for reduced drag giving golfers increased swing speed and ball speed numbers. The SQ Machspeed Black Round Driver comes equipped with a made for Nike Mitsubishi Fubuki driver shaft and the club is offered in lofts ranging from 8.5* to 13*. If you want the latest and greatest from Nike, I would definitely check out this driver out in November!

The new Nike SQ Machspeed Str8-Fit Driver was designed to give golfers ultimate distance by reducing the amount of drag during the swing due to the club’s aerodynamic head shape. (more…)
