No matter if you're pushing, slicing, fading, hooking, pulling, or drawing, this driver will have your shot fixed in no time. The Nike SQ Dymo STR8-FIT Driver ($300), available in a traditional round head or square-shape (shown), gives you eight different head positions in one club, letting you adjust face angle, lie angle, and loft for dramatically improved ball flight. The shaft on the STR8-FIT is Nike's UST Proforce AXIV Core, which features a strengthening core material for greater impact and faster swings. The driver also features a new 360° grip design for any grasp. Our Nike SQ Dymo Squared STR8-FIT definitely added several yards to our used-to-be-pathetic drives the first time we took it out. (It's also making the TaylorMade R9 look a little wimpy.) But don't take our word for it — Nike STR8-FIT technology has already won at Augusta.
