I’ve recently been following Nike’s 8>9 Challenge on Twitter (#8>9), and in doing so I’ve become aware of a few blog posts documenting user reviews of Nike’s SQ Dymo STR8-FIT Driver compared with TaylorMade’s R9 460. Below are links to two of these reviews, and a third article that is a review of the SQ Dymo Driver and Fairway Woods.
The user reviews come from a couple of popular golf bloggers – Ryan Balengee of Waggle Room and Scot Duke of Mr. Business Golf. Both reviews contain detailed analysis of the clubs’ specs, design and aesthetics, performance, acoustics, and adjustability. Each reviewer also shares their experience of using each club both on the range (or in the golf shop in Ryan’s case) and on the course. They both also give their bottom line assessment of both clubs, and any preferences between the two, at the end of each respective review. The appeal of these user reviews is that they are by average golfers under normal playing conditions, which I think many of us can relate to a little more closely than a typical review by a major golf publication.
The third article by Kiel Christianson of World Golf is also informative and comes from an average golfer’s point of view. It should be helpful to users (like myself) who are considering adding an SQ Dymo Driver (and maybe the fairway woods too) to their bag some time this year.
You can check out all three reviews at the following links:
