If anybody hasn;t seen the youtube video, NIKE is releasing the 2013  driver NOV. 5th.

They showed quotes from tour players, and one of them reads;

'It definitely won't be mistaken for any other driver" . I guess this means that Nike is going wild with this one. I personally love NIKE, so I'm biased.

What do you WRX'ers think ?

I bet if they can get TW and Rory in this driver and then market the heck out of that they will have a chance possibly.

I like Nike gear but I wouldn't say that they don't make bad stuff.  Have you seen or played the original Machspeed series, the Method Core Drone, the Method Concept putter, any of the square drivers, etc.?  I feel like they are all examples of the "bad" stuff they've made.

That being said, I do agree that they've come a LONG way since the early 2000's... There were some atrocious clubs being made back then.

I am over stuff like this... I hope it is the next big thing... or just enough to help Tiger straighten out his drives and put Golf back in the lime Light!!!

Don't forget about the Nike VR Tour Driver either.  That one is a classic.  Great stock shaft in it too!

I did a review on the Nike Pro LE (glued in) and it was a very solid and capable driver, really well made. Not a fan however of the forged irons, just never seem to have great feel and consistency for me. I would bag a Nike driver offering in a heartbeat but 2013 will be a tough year to try and compete with Ping and Titleist, both of which will be very popular...BB

I cant wait for this. I like Nike product and my current Nike driver is among my top 2 ever. I will try it regardless of what it looks like but I think it will be a BEAST based on what I have heard.
