So, I will be reviewing these two titans of the teebox and let you know what Mr Business Golf take is on these two drivers. Bachground: Nike and TaylorMade both came out with adjustable clubhead designs. This means you can unscrew the head with a wrench and set the lie and loft to play the golf shot you prefer. I had a choice of drivers to compare.. Come on NIKE, this driver needs a nickname. No golfer is going to answer the question they are going to get asked out on the driving range or teebox after they powders a drive out beyond the yd marker… Hey, what Driver are you hitting?
I know they want to be different and youthful but the Full Name for this driver needs to be cut down to something that can be quickly verbalized. Maybe I will have a name for it once I get to the meat of this comparison. Nothing unusual here, just a plain brown box.. The unwrapping went well and as a good golf geek always does, the first thing is to read the manual…but not being a golf geek I did like you and the millions other golf addicts who get a new golf club.
I ripped off the wrappers, take all of the protective crap off the club head, cut the plastic off the grip and went outside to swing that puppy…the heck with the manual. I know about physics and that both version of the driver have the same set-up. Anything symmetrical or square in golf equipment tends to make the eye want to place the angles in perpendicular alignments and that takes away from the more important aspect of hitting a golf ball and that is FEEL. So to compare a square head to a rounded head would cause me to think it was the design of the head that made the club hit better or worse.
But bottomline.. Manual After getting a feel of the new DYMO-8 with a few dozen practice swings it was time to go back to see what all the other stuff that fell out of the box was about. Of course there was this gargantuan size headcover in a sealed bag and the Manual in another package.
The Headcover has this great little pocket for the wrench that adjusts the configuration of the clubhead. The headcover has an interesting design, but it is not the headcover or the wrench that caused me the most concern.
This 63 page instruction manual first makes one think.. However, the instructions are only two full pages.. I assume NIKE is wanting this instruction page to be the Rosetta Stone for how to adjust the clubhead of their driver. Now, being an operations manager for over 30 years I know that streamlining manufacturing of several redundant processes is a form of efficiency, but in this case…29 languages? NIKE could have cut this down to a few languages in a number of printed versions of the manual and target shipped the different manuals to the different global markets.
I am sure that it would save on print costs since some of the markets probably the English Market you would have to print more manuals than some of the other markets they printed in their language.
Nike is not the only manufacturer who does this and I know that someone was thinking that it would save time in packaging if there was just one manual to place in the packaging. However, does anyone think of negative impression it gives to wasting the printing of two pages of instruction on how to use the adjuster wrench and replace its battery in 29 other languages?
I guess Not or they would have not printed the instructions as part of a linguist catalog. Yes, it is the size of a Mini Copper, but it does fit and it does have that pocket for the adjuster wrench. Plus, it has this adjustment indicator that Velcro to the flap. There was no instruction on what you where to do with the indicator so I will assume it was to remind you what setting you currently have the driver set up for. I am sure, over time the flap for the wrench compartment will wear out and the wrench will fall out and get lost.
I can see then the compartment used to hold a cigar or script marker…or something. I have to say, I am rather excited to compare these two drivers. I have hears good stuff about both of them.
Being a Titleist man for over 15 years, I am really wanting to see what these clubs have to offer. This will be a true test of which of these drivers perform better. Next stop is the driving range to compare the different set-ups of the DYMO-8 vs the R9 with the PGA Staff at my club and then test drive the clubs around a few of the golf courses at my club.
