Nike is revealing its new £179 SasQuatch Fairway metals, not so much hot on the heels of its 460 Sasquatch driver, more deep in its giant footprints.
‘SasQuatch’ in Eskimo-speak means ‘Big Foot’ – a fictional beast that roams the Alaskan wastelands – and the popular club-makers have latched on to the fable to create a yellow-soled set of clubs they hope will leave an indelible mark with golfers.
These fairway metals, which come standard with a Diamana graphite shaft, feature similar geometry to the driver with a distinctive head design using PowerBow technology that Nike claims, makes it easier for golfers to hit longer and straighter shots.
The clubs will be available in February with a range of lofts from 3plus to 7-wood (13 to 21 degrees) for right-handed men and more limited lofts for left-handers and women. The graphite version (£209) will have the option of an Aldila NV65 or Grafalloy Blue PL65 shaft (X, S or R flex).
