The sound made by the Nike SQ seemed carry like no other.

I remember playing at one of the local courses during a weekend blitz when someone teed off with that obnoxious sounding Nike SQ on the tee up ahead of us. Some guy from 2 fairways over hollered over........shove that thing GD thing up your A..  Everyone in our foursome just busted out laughing.

Found it!!  Knew I had it somewhere sitting in a closet.  Might have to bring it to my next range session. 981789BB-6145-4028-9AA1-20D9EC1E2D65.jpeg.1275cd3239036cf21e89e4e1a46f7d7c.jpeg4CFC15F1-94C5-4D25-92FA-57195433665C.jpeg.5595a094e263ed550f4188743c92f39a.jpeg

Nike SQ has to be the loudest driver I’ve ever heard! 

 

I agree but i think you mean the SQ SUMO (the square one). The original Sasquatch as a pear shaped driver Tiger played

 

The SUMO was the one that sounded like an aluminum bat that Lucas Glover played in the Open

The square NIke SQ sounded like it was designed by a foley artist from the Tom & Jerry cartoons.

I had that Wilson Spine and it was incredibly loud, especially on off center hits, which I had way too many of.  I had to quit using it due to embarrassment.  As for that Ping ISI-Titanium I remember my brother just getting it and using it for the first time, there were 4 groups of us playing on a Sunday morning and he was in the first group off and I was in the last and every time he teed off we knew by the sound it was him.

I'd echo that.  The noise probably depends a lot on swing speed, but even at my swing speed it was pretty loud, to that point that their slogan is "Loud and proud".

 

I had a couple long-drive friends---the kind who genuinely hit 400+ yards---and their Bang drivers sounded like rifle crack.  Not a really big one, but not a .22 either. Maybe a 30-30.  I don't remember which exact model they were playing, but one of them eventually won the Remax and got sponsored by Bang, so he had his choice.  

 

They weren't allowed to hit my 525, since they'd already caved in one of theirs.   Since the 525 is no considered longer conforming, I've now got a 460cc Bang-o-Matic.   I'd say that it's a little more muted, but it's probably just because my swing speed has decreased with age.

When I first started playing a couple times a year my Mom bought me this non-conforming 500 cc driver for Christmas one year, and I didn’t know any better at the time. The thing was a cannon!

I still have one of these. It's soft as velvet compared to that Nike mess. Nike SQ is not just loud. It's ugly loud. Empty Bud Light cans make a better sound.

Non OEM category. Bang Golf's Big Big Bang 525.  Made the Nike SQ and Cobra drivers sound quiet in comparison. Played behind a group in a scramble some time back in which a guy used the Bang driver. It was ridiculously loud. Guy hit the ball a mile with it.  Was amazing to watch.

This.  I had one that was simply outrageous.

You are 100% correct! That was the one I was referring to. That square driver was the ugliest and most obnoxiously loud thing on the course! I could be 5 holes away from someone using it and know exactly what they were playing 🤣

There is one that I have hit and for the life of me cannot remember the name, it was blue and incredibly loud. 

I am sure they are still around, it was a small Company but not a component Company.

It was also very long if you could stand the sound.

The Nike like others have posted or Wilson spine. Was almost embarrassing to hit the Wilson spine because how loud it was. 

Hit some of my longest drives with the Wilson Spine, and it announced it's presence to everyone on the course.

Cobra L4V and Nike SQ square driver.

 

 

... Yup, these two share the top spot in the Most Obnoxious Sounding Driver Hall Of Fame. I was walking into Golfsmith with their tin roof and metal bracing and thought I heard the roof collapsing, so I ducked. That was the first time I heard the Sumo Square.

I played last summer with a guy who still uses one of these. Every shot sounds like a baseball being chucked at a metal garbage can. How they ever went to market with this thing is beyond me. Dude hit it pretty well though.
