The Nike Ignite driver comes in two versions, the 410 driver and the 460 version.

Both are very good clubs with large heads for plenty of confidence and masses of power and forgiveness. The feel and sound of the 410 is just a little sharper, probably because of the smaller head, the numbers being reference to the size in cc of the clubhead.

However we feel this makes it more enjoyable and as such we would go for the Nike Ignite 410 driver, unless you want the extra size of a 460cc head, which let's fact it can't be knocked.

The shape of the head of the 460cc version was not as classic as the 410 and we found the sound to be a little 'deader' but don't be mistaken it is still a competent driver.

Good offerings in shafts, with the standard Nike shaft coming with a soft tip to get the ball airborne more easily.

Overall we like the Nike Ignite driver and hey, if it's good enough for Tiger ...

For me the Nike Ignite 410 driver is a better club then the Nike Ignite 460 driver. Although the head is a little smaller, you get a much better feel, sound and feedback. The ball flight is excellent and I tried it with the standard graphite shaft which was very consistent. Overall an excellent club at a good price.

Replaced my Callaway with a Nike Ignite 410 driver, 9 degree stiff. Quite simply an awesome piece of kit that importantly is easy to use, very accurate and so long it's incredible. Cannot recommend a club as much as this.
