The Nike SQ Sumo² 5900 driver is an updated version of the original Sumo square driver and the biggest difference you notice is the sound, which is much more subdued, which to us was a welcome improvement!
Nike have maxed out on all the possible limits for size, COR and MOI on the SQ Sumo² 5900 driver. Very high MOI drivers in the past were only really of benefit to higher handicappers, but we think this SQ Sumo² 5900 driver can be used by players of all abilities.
It was very easy to hit and as expected it was a bit straighter on mis-hits than it's sister driver, the SQ Sumo 5000.
As with similar drivers, the ball flight was higher, but we did not notice too much loss of distance as a result of this.
The club sat nicely at address and the clever head colour scheme made you feel you were swinging a normal club.
The forgiveness of the head was great and emphasised by the fact you can easily hit this driver off the deck and get similar distance to a normal drive, which into the wind you would probably need to do anyway.
A big improvement and proof that square drivers could be here to stay.
