One Nike belt, that is the only Nike product I own.

Will never purchase any type on Nike shoe again, they do not last for me.

Would try the irons.

Been a huge Nike supporter since my high school days when i was on the basketball team. I have Nike TW Shorts, SP-8 TW shoes, Nike Visor and i even wear the Nike Pro tights/shorts underneath. But i do not wear Nike Polo's because they are waaaay too baggy. The only club in my bag that are Nike is the TW Blades and the bag itself. I also own shares of NKE.

I don't wear Nike apparel, I play Nike Balls.

The only person I can think of that wears Nike apparel but doesn't use any Nike equipment is Eldrick Woods.  He uses Mizuno irons, Titleist wedges, Cobra woods, and plays a balata Titleist Pro-100

Nike apparel, IMO is some of the best out there.  I also wear their shoes, which aren't the most comfortable, but grip the best and are the most stable, I find.  As far as equipment goes, not a fan of their drivers, but the fairway woods are pretty good, and the new irons are not bad at all.  I gamed a unitized putter for a while too, which was ok.  Not sure a) what the stigma against Nike gear is, and b) what apparel has to do with equipment.  If you wear Adidas, should you be playing TM?  If you wear Footjoy, should you be playing Titliest?

If the clothes are cheap and look good, I use them, regardless of brand.  Clubs however are a different story altogether.  Never used a Nike club, and probably never will.

Funny...The clothing is stylish and fits me better than most other brands, but the clubs are gaudy and look cheaply made when I put them down at address. So I guess I'd say the clothes fit me, but the clubs don't!

Their shoes are cool to look at, but I think they wear out waaaaaaaaay too quickly. Cheaply made with softer materials, so they feel good at the pro shop, but break down quickly. The opposite of FootJoy...hard as hell to break in, but after you do, they last forever.

I really like Nike clothes. Great fit, long lasting and very comfortable. 100% of my workout clothing (shorts, shirts, socks) is Nike and at least 50% of my golf wardrobe is Nike. Their Dry-Fit stuff is fantastic.

I hated their shoes when they first came out (around 1998 I believe). I got a pair for a tee prize. They were the MOST PAINFUL shoes I ever tried to wear. Caused blisters even after they were broken in. Finally threw them away.

Several years later, I was poking fun at the Nike rep at a demo day at how crappy their shoes were and he said, I will give you a new pair to try for free. If they suck, give them back, no charge. If you like them, pay me for them. I figured what the heck. They were comfortable from day 1. Night and day difference from that first pair I tried. They were so good that I stopped buying Footjoy Classics.

Now I know from my friends that Nike shoes don't fit everyone, but they fit me. Also they don't last as long as the Footjoy Classics but in Portland, we get so much wet play that the waterproofing gives out long before the shoes themselves wear out so I don't keep shoes for more than 2 seasons.  Footjoys would still look good after 2 years (much better quality leather) but the waterproofing was shot so I couldn't use them 1/2 the year anyways.

Golf clubs are a whole different ballgame. They sucked from day 1 and as far as I am concerned they still suck. I have kept trying them but nothing appeals to me and I can get anything of theirs for 1/2 price and it still isn't worth it.

However, I do believe Nike stuff does keep getting better and perhaps one day they will have a club I would actually want to game.

1964 Acushnet O-SET M6S Bullseye Putter

New stuff

Adams 5050 14.5 fairway wood
Adams A2P 20* hybrid
Titleist 716 MB irons 4-PW

equipment is just as solid as the apparel (which I love).  Had VR wedges, Ignite and SQ drivers.  Early stuff was week, newer stuff is legit.  Pretty sure if it is good enough for Tiger you can use it with confidence.

Nike TW collection shorts, slacks & shirts.  Nike special edition TW SP8 shoes, Nike belts,dri fit socks, Nike watch.  

Bridgestone caps, balls and clubs, NO Nike.  Unless TW wants to send me one of his Miura forged backup sets.  Actually, Ive seen a set of Miura forged J33B prototypes that I would probably rather game. lol :)

I pretty much wear only Nike polos and I have a pair for SP8 shoes.  As far as equipment.. I've never been a fan of anything Nike has ever made.  I like the VR blades... but just for the looks I've never actually hit them.

I buy it dirt cheap at Ross so I wear it.

Yeah I only buy Nike from Ross...but I have tons of it. And Ive never spent more than 10 bucks a shirt from Ross. Cant beat. I also own three pairs of nike shoes...wear the white SP-8's all the time....no other shoe compares. I just need to get some new black Nikes with the semi-square toes too.
As for their clubs....I cant play them...the only ones i would consider is the older sumo 5000 and the VR wedges.

The only Nike clothing I have is the freebies I have got over the years from rep's and the wife has some of them as them. She likes the "tick" on them, typical female. I know Nike clothing is good quality but it seems to be too expensive for the average joe from my experiences. At a resort style of golf club, no problems in selling it as customers are cashed up. As for the golf equipment and balls, I have tried most of them and at some places we used to stock it but always had to discount it to get rid of it. People will not buy a dozen Nike top of the range balls when TM/B'Stone and Titty balls have a cheaper RRP. Pricing in Australia is very different to the USA. I have nothing against NIKE, they have some good stuff but it is up there in the pricey range.

The club I work at is a nike only shop so that's all I wear and am allowed to wear lol. I like some stuff and don't like some things like all company's, I wish they would make some cooler  euro influenced shirts, the hats and pants are good but you have to order everything which is kind of a pain.

I've got a few Nike shirts, but their clubs just don't do anything for me, particularly their drivers - they'd have to pay me to use their clubs!

As far as the apparel, I only wear the shoes and the gloves.  Equipment wise, I only use the balls.  They are priced pretty good if you are looking for a quality 3 peice ball. (You can find the Nike One Vapors for under $30)

Hey,

I was wondering how many wear Nike apparel (hats, clothes, shoes, socks, underwear, glove), but refuse to use their equipment?

My buddy is Nike from head to toe including sunglasses but refuses to use any of their equipment :D


I played with uncle and a couple of his buddies and one of the guy had nike hat,glasses, shirt,socks and shoes but had all cleveland clubs.  I myself have a nike hat, socks, shirt, and shoes but only use the occasional Nike golf ball. I do not own any Nike clubs. I've been wanting to try the CCi Cast irons but i went with the taylormade r7 irons instead.

I really like their apparel and have a Nike outlet close so I have a lot of it. I've tried their clubs in the past, didn't like any of them and they didn't seem to like me. I haven't hit anything they've put out in the past couple years though.

I love their apparel and like all of their equipment. Only reason I don't have all nike stuff in the bag right now is because I am a broke college student. I am looking for an old Sasquatch Tour 8.5 to put in the bag, would definitely play one of the 3-woods, love the VR TW irons and am dying to get the VR black sating wedges. I also like the One Tour's. The only reason I might not buy the older driver is because of the rumors of the Dymo 380 coming out in early 2010.
