Pros: Perfect for a driver
Cons: Too tall for any other club
In April I purchased the Bugle Tee after hearing positive things about it on XM Raido / PGA Tour Network. I decided to purchase two packs of the Twin pack. The Twin pack included the following items:
1x 3 1/4" Tee
1x 2 3/4" Tee
I bought two packs because I figured if I lost one - or one happened to break, I would have a replacement tee of the same height. The tee is great to hit with a driver because it has a tee setter built into it - and you get the perfect tee height every single time. At least a perfect tee height for my driver.
The Bugle Tee is guaranteed to last for life - if it breaks or fails, you send the tee back to Bugle Tee for a free replacement. That is a pretty nice guarantee - another reason why I purchased it.
Ultimately, why I purchased the Bugle Tee was because I was getting tired of buying a bulk packs of tees - that would last me only 2 or 3 months before I needed to make another purchase. So while I may have spent $24 in up front cost... I really believe this tee will pay for itself after a few golf seasons.
I've played over 30 rounds with these Bugle Tees and have no complaints. The tee is still in perfect physical condition. Cosmetically - I purchased the white colored tee - and while the white color is a little dull - and not nearly as brilliant as it was when it was first removed from the package - it still performs perfectly.
Given the Bugle tee has a built in tee setter, I don't use it off the tee when I'm using an iron or 3W. But I tee my irons and 3W/hybrids up very low - as if they were sitting on a perfect lie. So I only use the Bugle Tee for my driver, and the balance of tee shots - I tee up with a broken tee. The funny thing is - that I have quite a collection of wooden tees now - that I will occasionally use for my irons/3W - given I find them and then some courses give you tee's in the cart.
Also - I do not use the Bugle tee with a driver - if there is any large waste area - or hazard to carry right beyond the tee box. The reason is that the Bugle tee could potentially fly into it - which would make it difficult to retrieve. Therefore, I typically only use the Bugle tee when I know for sure I don't have to worry about it flying into high grass, shrubs or water hazard directly in front of the teeing area.
Honestly - I love the Bugle Tee... And I'm ecstatic that I will never have to buy another set of tees again.
