    Nickent 5DX Review

    The review is up on the main site. It is actually a review of their entire line rather than just the 5DX.

    It was a great review, JB. I even went to their web site. Love the fact that the women's line is named, "Goddess," but yet again--all right handed.

    Claire,
    I am working on getting a set made just for you in lefty. Put a call in yesterday. Im sure it will go no where. This was a really hard review to write for me, so I am glad you liked it. I would have probably preferred to do each hybrid separately, but they wanted them together. And it makes sense seeing as though the 3DX and 4DX have been reviewed many times already.

    see... I read things like this and then when I am at home I feel daggers in my back. My Hoofer is just looking at me, I know he wants a 5DX in there now!

    Haha, great review JB!

    DD,
    They would match rather nicely with those Arc Blades you are sporting. Plus they have the green and white colors you like....hehe

    sweet action jb. i really liked the review. i think if i could get over the wings, i would really like the 5dx. a huge selling point for low handicappers, like some of us on here, is the feel of driving through the ball. thats reallly something i look for in woods and hybrids

    This club really drives through the ball based on weighting.

    Only hit it twice today on the course but both times the impact is nice. It definitely is longer than my Wilson Staff.

    I'm really liking what I'm reading on the 5dx. I'll have a couple of them on the way through their 'trade' program.

    I'm a bit worried about the Fuji 5 shaft... I will have a ProtoPYPE LO-Brid 85x to put in the 14* if the Fuji doesn't work out and there's always DG X100 for the 20. I'm basically planning on it being soft but I'm really hoping that it will be good. The SR3 experience has me worried...:)

    Either way, looking forward to the 5dx. I'm about to a whole Nickent bag for 09 but the driver (L4V w/ Protopype 60x) and putter (Seemore SB1, 46") are safe...

    We'll see...
