Nickent 4dx driverI guess Nickent wasn’t done announcing new gear today. They’ve now announced the Nickent 4DX Fairway Woods.

The 4DX fairway woods are available in 13°, 15°, 17°, 19° and 21° and come standard with a UST SR3 shaft for $199. You can upgrade to an Aldila NV or UST V2 shaft for $219.

These are sweet looking clubs. I have pictures of the 4DX and many other Nickent golf clubs in the Hooked On Golf Blog Nickent Gallery.

One thing I wanted to mention in the last post was how well these Nickents match the color scheme of this site!

NICKENT’S PRESS RELEASE BELOW

The little brother to the 4DX Driver will make a name for itself even in the shadows of the larger, more athletic sibling. The new 4DX Fairway Wood from Nickent Golf utilizes brazing technology, a new innovation that allows a manufacturer to fuse steel and Titanium without using epoxy.

Because a stainless steel face is far and away the best material for the performance of a fairway wood, Nickent decided the best plan of action was to take their super thin .4 mm Titanium crown and braze it with 17-4 stainless steel body, a proven performer in fairway wood design. The shape of the 4DX was based off of the popular 3DX Fairway Wood, a top seller for Nickent the last two seasons. By replacing the crown with their super thin Titanium technology, and because the Titanium weighs 5 times less than a steel crown, Nickent was able to significantly raise the MOI and make the face have a larger sweet spot.

“We wanted to retain the same shape of the original 3DX Fairway Wood, but make it an even better golf club,” said Nickent Senior Vice President John Hoeflich. “This was no simple task. We tried every combination of materiel and we finally found one that will be the backbone of our stainless steel products for the foreseeable future.”

The addition of the Titanium crown allowed Hoeflich to add in the XW Inserts, which have become the driving technology behind nearly every Nickent product in the 2007 line. The XW Inserts provide 16 grams of weight to be adjusted in 2-gram increments by the manufacturer for directional control and swing weight purposes, without relying on bulky screws that add a harsh feel at impact.
