I have now played a round with the Nike NDS Irons (rented) and the Ignite Driver and FW's, as well as Nike blue chip putter. I have no confidence in Nike golf products whatsoever. Like the Nike balls and that is about it, tried the Slingshots and didn't like them, have also tried the Squatch Driver and wasn't to thrilled with it either.

On the upside my 150 yards and in to the green is really coming together. I have no problems at all with it. That is until I am on the green, putting still blows chunks.

I'm with you: Nike balls are great, especially the cheapie Super Soft. I have no desire to have the swooshtika on my clubs.

I am exactly the same way. I just don't like the feel of any Nike product, including their balls. It all feels very bland to me and there are lots of alternatives that give me way better results.

To each their own, of course...

I've played the Nike SS and the Pro Comp and I will say that they were better than expected (no where near Mizunos though). I hated the Nike Ignite driver and dislike the Sasquatch driver as well.
BUT...the Nike Sasquatch 5-wood with a Diamana shaft that I have is a great club. I've mentioned this before but it a VERY easy club to hit. I've hit fades, draws, stingers and 200 yd floaters with it (lest anyone get the notion that I'm that good this is not "golfing on command", I can just pull these off most of the time.) Right now it is my favorite club and that is the last thing I expected!

I really liked the SQ, and i don't know why. Sure its ugly, but i like it. If i dont go SMT, I may go with a SQ Tour with a Accuflex Evo. I have played the NDS' and i accually thought they were nice irons, good feedback and pretty good workability for a low end iron.

I have limited experience playing with the Nikes, but I have tried the Slingshot and Combos and enjoyed both... but what do I know, I usually play with a baseball bat, shovel, rake and a Pink Lady :)

Well, all the new Nike stuff(excluding my beloved OneBlacks) is so so.

However, the original Nike Forged Irons and their first driver out(which I own) are both wonderful clubs.

Personally, I love my Nike Black Oz T100 putter. After two or three rounds with it, I have the speed and line down. The last three rounds I have played in under 2 putts/green average, which is a first for me. Never was a great putter with my previous POS, but this thing has great feel and balance for my stroke...

Just my 2 cents.

Yeah that would be an understatement., got the driver working again real nice and my 8 iron through LW are freaking dandy, anything longer than that or the putter bring out the hacker in me.
