I wonder which came first. The “Nickent malignant sentience pipe dream” or the Rossa Monza Spider...

Very interesting Tidbit:

The 6DX hybrid ($129.99) is an oversized hybrid that reminds me of the Callaway Diablo and Razr Hybrids in looks. The 6DT Hybrid ("Tour" $149.99) looks a lot like the Adams A12 Hybrid. Each of them have VooDoo Shafts in them and the color scheme is awesome. I love the look when it comes to the color scheme, but I hated looking down on the 6DX. It's way too big. I don't like the 6DX because at $149.99, it can't compete with the Mashie or SF2.0.

I went ahead and hit them on some down time. The 6DX felt a little cheap to me. I like the shaft and the looks, but the feel is weird. It's a got a cheap feel and sound. Kind of tinny. Very shallow face as well.

The feel of the 6DT is a little better. Sets up better, a little deeper, and sounds much better. A classic thwack sound.

I wouldn't be against putting the 6DT in the bag, but at the price... nah. I'll pass.



Seems like dicks is at least making some sort of half ass attempt at keeping this brand at a high level of quality.

First I heard from a guy who is a fitter at a local golf shop that Nickent was in development of 6DX Driver/Woods and 8DX Hybrids when it went under. He thought there was a good chance dicks just rehashed those designs and slapped on some orange paint. Im not so sure about this, but i kinda hope its true becuase it would mean that at least for their initial year this new Nickent would probably hit and feel a lot like the old Nickent.

Second rumor I heard was that Golf Galaxy is working with Dicks to design and market the club. This one I might believe more and is also one that could be hopeful as Golf Galaxy in my experience doesn't pedal budget entry level type stuff im not sure theyd be willing to stake their reputation on clubs that were not at the very least competitive with other brands.


I believe Dick's owns GG, so they would have to work together.......

I'm probably one of the biggest Nickent fans you'll stumble upon, but without Hoeflich, my next set is going to be elsewhere.

I agree I hope I can keep my nickent set for at least another 2 years then move over to something else. Though someone is going to have to come up with amazing driver to pry my evolver out of my hands. And ive still never swung a hybrid from any year or brand that feels as good as the 3DX RC.

Im Highly jealous of your Arc wedges BTW, WHY OH WHY are there none around lefty?!?!?!?!

Far as anyone can tell hes not doing anything gold related at least not publicly. I assume hes either working on some top secret stuff or retired because if he wasn't Im sure someone would have hired him by now. Hopefully hes working on a startup called "The Company Formerly Known as Nickent"...

Has anybody played the 6DX clubs yet, Nickent were innovative clubs for their time ...Evolver driver,gel back irons,cored wedges....maybe the R&D; cost outweighed their sales.

Haven't tried the 6dx but I did game the 7DX 4 and 5 hybrids this year for a few rounds.  Actually some nice sticks, a made for Aldila RIP shaft and Golf Pride White out Grip.

The only knock was that they only came in Reg and Stiff shaft flexes.  I am right on the cusp of the Senior flex / Regular flex fence and normally play Sr flex in my FW's and Hybrids.
I went with the R flex and after cutting them both down an inch they played too stiff for my swing speed.  Hence I was losing too many balls right.

They were pretty forgiving though.

Well you have his crown jewel at least....he said that the Arch Blades were the best club he ever designed in an interview I listened to.

    • Played 27 Holes today made 7 birdies today finally birdied the 1st, just the second and third left to birdie.
    • I’ll pass that along to him and his people.  👍
    • Played my second round (ever) at the course that I think will be a home course for me next year (the complex has two 18s... I have played the other 18, but not in over a decade).  Birdied #13 to improve my away composite to five birdies and a total of -4 (I still have yet to par a hole nine in 2021 ... anywhere).  My two-round composite at that course is a 77.  By contrast, no birdies so far at my home course (well beyond two rounds played... and at least three scheduled in the next two weeks!), and three holes there I've yet to par.
    • Jesus, it’s not just white people who are offended. Just because he isn’t doesn’t mean many more native Americans are not. This line of logic is just idiotic. 
    • I talked to my buddy, 100% Navajo, about this thread.  His response was to shake his head, laugh and say “Leave it to the arrogant white man to tell us what we should be offended by…” Just thought I’d share.  I’m sure the arrogant white men here will continue to tell him he’s wrong though…  😂
