Nike Golf is adding to its SasQuatch (SQ) family with the introduction of the new SQ DYMO and DYMO² Fairway Woods that features what the company calls a Quad Keel Sole that eliminates the potential for turf drag. Suggested retail price of each fairway wood is $276.
Turf drag became, shall we say, a "larger'' problem as fairway woods became bigger with a deeper Center of Gravity (CG) and higher Moment of Inertia (MOI). That is, the increased tendency for the club to make impact with the ground and push shots off target.
Nike Golf says the Quad Keel Sole design angles four critical sole quadrants to minimize interaction between the ground and the sole of the club, resulting in increased club head speed and better distance, while providing an ease for getting the ball in the air. Material has also been removed from the back of the sole, according to the company, to reduce friction and drag while in contact with the turf.
Nike Golf says the DYMO fairway wood features a round head shape that make its easier to get the ball airborne. Nike Golf says the DYMO², with a center of gravity that is moved farther back and an enhanced, square-shaped head, provides stability at impact as well as forgiveness on off-center shots.
