Nike Dymo 2 driver with distinctive looks but more subtle cosmetics
Dymo and Dymo 2 drivers
For those for whom the adjustable driver concept doesn't yet appeal (and as you've probably detected, I'm one of them) the Dymo and Dymo2 drivers might prove a more appropriate choice.
Dymo stands for ‘Dynamic Moment of Inertia’ which, says Nike, combines all the elements of driver performance, including head size and geometry, centre of gravity, loft and lie angles as well as spin ratios to offer the optimal performance for each club.
The main design feature in both models is the size of the Power Bow Weighting - different in each loft option. The weighting is smallest in the lower-lofted 9.5-degree model and features a higher face, with a more forward centre of gravity, to promote a more penetrating trajectory with less spin.
The higher-lofted 10.5-, 11.5- and 13-degree models have the weight progressively increasing, moving the centre of gravity further and lower back from a shallower face to create higher launch angles and spin rates.
Out on the range, the effects of the different weighting and centre of gravity locations was hard to distinguish in terms of performance, any more than you would in any other group of drivers with different lofts. The lower lofts were more penetrating and were more workable, especially in the rounded head, while the square model produced the kind of high, floating, dead straight shots around which the square geometry has built its reputation.
Priced at £250, both models are fitted with Nike Golf’s UST Wide Body Shaft with an AXIV Core. It features a larger overall diameter throughout the body, to provide more stability through impact. Loft options are: 9.5 and 10.5 (RH/LH), 11.5 and 13 HL (RH only), Women’s 13 HL (RH only).
