I just picked up a 2-iron Nike Sumo Hybrid. I haven't played a round yet with it, but after hitting 15-20 balls on the range, this club is rock solid. I have a Hogan CFT 3 hybrid and I am considering replacing it with the Nike. The sound is definitely more "pingy" but the feel is sweet. Not to mention that the ball just flew, I think I'm pulling my 3 wood to sacrifice 10 yards for accuracy. I was hitting about 230 with this club.

agreed, this club is a beast. So easy to hit and it feels fantastic, and the ball just flys out there. Ive currently got the 2 hybrid, and Im thinking about getting a 3 as well and losing my 3 iron because this is just too easy to hit well.

Its got a bit of offset. Trajectory seems to launch high for me, but its also an incredibly easy club to work, and hit all different types of cool shots. Prob my favorite club to hit right now, it just seems so hard to hit a bad shot with it.

:partytime2: I've was playing the "round" Sasquatch 2 fairway wood at times last year and was immediately impressed with this hybrid model when I first saw one. I could tell these would go beautifully with the SQ fairway woods and was looking forward to trying one out. I finally did about mid year and was absolutely thrilled when I took it out for a hit. I took out 4 different models of 4 hybrids to compare (including the Sumo2 "square" model- which I hooked pretty much every time, and the excellent, very slightly "bigger headed" Ping G10) and the Sumo just went fantastically well and went straight into my bag (after about 4 shots, from memory!). I've tested 17 out of the 29 models of Hybrids to make the 2007 and 2008 Hotlist's (plus some others), to find my favourite and this is definitely it. It was a "no-brainer" and just what I was looking for.

 

I tend to hook my mis-hits and given that most clubs/hybrids on the market these days are "draw biased", with closed face angles, I hook/draw them like there's no tomorrow, but not this one (unless I'm a bit rusty and not swinging well- It's not a miracle worker!). It looks to sit perfectly square and I usually just hit it dead straight and it has a tremendous, very long and quite high trajectory (without balooning). I absolutely love how it plays. It feels really crisp at impact and you get very little resistance from the ground, due to the excellent shape/contour and width of the sole. I haven't really tried to, but I imagine it would also be easy enough to shape shots either way, too, as Nike say they do.

 

Unlike the "square" Sumo2 4 hybrid (which has a 1 inch shorter shaft and higher trajectory and was designed to be a "true" 4 iron replacement), this model in the 4 hybrid is certainly more of a steel-shafted 3 replacement than a steel 4 replacement, though, (In my experience- unless you have an extremely high ballflight), as these hit it so long. (Mainly due to the length of the shaft, the fact it's graphite and top quality and the very strong clubface material). This may even go a little longer than a (steel shafted) 3 iron and will likely be MUCH easier and more enjoyable to hit (while still being workable, either way, if necessary).

The shafts on these are also a bit heavier and stronger (especially in the tip), for "more control and penetration", than the relatively light and flexible stock shaft in the Sumo2 hybrids. I really like these shafts.

 

Although this is described as a "player's club", you don't need to be an absolute "gun" to get the best out of it. As I said, I've hit many different hybrid models recently and there are a couple out there that I found tougher to get great results, or good height with (like the Titleist 585.H and Adams Idea Pro). If you hit it mega high, those two may suit you better, or a steel shaft in this model may be the go for you. There are definitely many easier models to hit, if you need a lot of help, but there are also some that are harder to hit well (and fly lower).

About the only negative thing I have to say about this model is that it doesn't come in the 5, or even 6 hybrid lofts. If they did, I'd play them both, too, without hesitation. These are that good!
