From GOLF Magazine (Buyer's Guide, May 2009)
It's for: All skill levels

Andrew Oldknow, senior product designer: "This design enhances the square shape for maximum straight-shot performance. The address profile should give you confidence when aligning the club to the target. We design the 'quad keel' sole to power through the ground, similar to the way a boat keel slashes through water."

How it works: The term "Dymo" is short for dynamic moment of inertia. In other words, this square head is meant to produce straight shots. Extra rear weighting in the heel and toe pulls the center of gravity back to increase launch and lower spin. Four separate quadrants on the sole (hence, the "quad keel") allow the head to glide through turf for clean contact so shots get airborne easier. A lightweight "widebody" shaft—wider diameter from the grip to six inches above the clubhead—is designed to maintain stiffness as you swing faster. (You may find that some ultra lightweight shafts are more flexible than the flex label suggests.) Nike believes a more stable shaft leads to more aggressive swings.
