My handicap is around 8 and I play around 4-6 times/month. I'm around 5'8, 170 lbs. Played with the original Sasquatch (10.5 degree, regular flex) for one season and thought i'd upgrade to this one, although i had no complaints with the original. I swing pretty hard and the regular flex on my old club allowed me to really utilize the flex, slowing down my swing, resulting in around 80% fairways hit. I mostly bought the new club for the shaft (Adila proto you stiff) to increase distance by swinging harder. I averaged around 270 off the drive. The loft is 8.5 and I hit it fairly well, still getting used to it. Doesn't have as much feel as the original sasquatch and where the old one has a nice, crisp sound on impact, this one has a very loud ping sound. I am however able to shape shots a little better, and my distance has increased about 10 yards, although my consistency has dropped a bit. The distance has probably more to with the degree, shaft and a harder swing though. Good club and would recommend it if you can get used to the sound.Read full review
Nike 5000 vs Nike SQ Sumo driver
I have been using a Nike SQ Sumo 460 for a couple of years. There wasn't anything wrong with the club except I wanted to try one of the new 5000 version. This turned out to be a good decision. I purchased a club with the same Shaft, Flex and Loft, (9.5* with a Regular flex) . This way I could really compare one version to the other. What I noticed was that the drive with the Nike 5000 were approx. 10/15 yards farther and I am hitting more fairways. I would occasionally slice with the old driver, The Nike 5000 seemed to give you more control off the tee. Both clubs are actually VERY GOOD for the price. Although, for the price difference, I would recommend the Nike 5000 for distance and control..
Nike SQ 10.5 Diamana Redboard
I have hit many clubs over the last few years including a lot of the new bigger and better drivers. Every year I end up coming back to my old Nike SQ Driver. For some reason I tend to hit this club better than most. It has a lot of pop and is easy to work even with the large 460cc head. It does not set up as closed as most of the game improvement clubs (i.e. Taylormade, Callaway, Cobra). This club works great for any skill level and Nike has yet to come out with a club that can match the performance. Like most people I like to tinker and try to find a club that will give me a few extra yards. Believe me my buddies let me know it. I still enjoy taking all of their money with this gem. I also try to keep everything in perspective. I was fitted with this club where I was not with several of the other drivers I have used outside my Cobra L4V. As always I recommend anyone to get fitted because it only takes a few minutes of your time and makes a world of difference on the course. The stock Nike shaft with this club was very weak for my swing. I was orginally going to opt for the Aldila Proto or the Diamana Blueboard. After the fitter looked at my swing and the amount of torque he fitted me with the Diamana Redboard in a stiff flex. I could have went with either of the other two shafts in an X-stiff but I wanted to maintain some flex to work the ball. The bottomline is this is a great club especially when you can get it for around $100 on eBay. If any of you follow golf there has to be a reason this club is still used by Tiger Woods. I assume the number #1 player in the world would have switched by now if Nike had offered a better club.Read full review
Nike SQ SUMO2 5300 MOI Driver
After playing a scramble with some of my Rotary people, I had to say something. One of the guys had a Nike SQ SUMO2 5300 MOI Driver. We used 14 of his drives, with one of them being 380 yards of pure shape. I've hit Bertha's for many years and never had this kind of accuracy with the Driver. In fact I'm happy with my Fat Backs. But, it was time for a new driver, after 5 years. I hit a demo G10 and it was wild in my hands. The latest Burner was also a beast for hunting the right fairway, at least, in my hands. The Nike Driver proved to be the most forgiving Driver that I have ever hit and now I hit my intended fairways with regularity. That Nike noise is a small (sort-of) price to pay for the result. If you have to hit super narrow fairways and drive 280 to 300 accurate yards, keep a Sumo in your bag. You will probably loose 20 yards, but you will trade those yards for fairway.

Tour edition Nike SasQuatch Driver
Nike SasQuatch Driver Golf Club I bought was beautiful. I was not sure what Tour Model meant until I got to the driving range and noticed that I could not hit a ball in the air. Lucky for me that in my foursome was a PGA asst pro who quickly explained that the sweet spot for a Tour Model is the size of my fingernail. He picked up the club and sent 4 balls screaming down range. He had the exact same driver but not the Tour Edition and I can hit it easily. We both loved each others drivers and traded after that round of golf. Moral of the story...if you are a high handicapper, such as I, do NOT buy anything that has TOUR on it, that is for scratch golfers. I love my REGULAR SASQUATCH.
