No problem! It's a great club.

Do you think so highly of the big brands? Most of their stuff is junk. I've hit 50  of their super marketed driver and none of them made it even close to my bag. Some of these smaller guys have some true quality components and you simply throw them under the bus.

Who are you even talking to-Use the quote function or something. What a weird first post.

On the other hand, I went and checked out the website, and it looks a lot like a green version of the Covert.

Can't wait to read your review!

It's kind of backwards of the Covert. The Covert has the one cut-out in the middle, the Grenade has two of them in the corners.

The review will have better pictures, but here's a quick one I took with my iPhone:

Haven't gotten to hit it yet. It does look a bit more simple than most of the OEM drivers, but it's not really a component head.

It looks pretty good. I was just about to order one for my son, but got a great deal on a brand new Titleist 910D2 with his name on the shaft.

I think the pockets are designed better than the covert. They say the outside dual pockets stablizes the head. It seems like the faster it moves, the more force is keeping the path straight.

I like the attempt to use air flow rather than just trying to reduce it.

Might need to pick one up for myself.

I noticed this club in @cipher 's signature the other day.  How do you like it, Nathan??

To be honest I have only played with it once.  Hit it at the range before a round and then played a round if golf with it.  Temps were 35-40 or so.  I am not sure how it will compare to my old Anser driver on distance.  I think that it will be a bit longer. The big thing that I noticed was that it felt very easy to control.  I hit one slight pull of the first tee and then a push near the end when I was tired.  Pretty minor misses for me though.  It was tough to hit a bad shot with it.  Took a poor swing at one and hit it way in on the heel and it still went out there a ways in the middle of the fairway.  It is very forgiving IMO.

The sole plate reminds me of the Taylor TP blades, they where great so this club might have some merit based on energy transfer and aerodynamic's ... Just hope it doesn't ring like the old nike sumo square head(the original one)

The sound is actually pretty nice.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), default quality

This is the TP head  I was referring to LBlack14  the Grenade appears to be the wood version of this iron. Two technologies have nothing in common but look similar. It just looks like a muscle back sole pate if the world existed lol ...the concept of air pockets to reduce friction was done by Slazenger(completely dimpled crown as well) head way back in the early 80's...the Hogan Speed slot was intended to do the same thing back in the wood days...one of the Frankenstein I put together years ago was an Langert Foiler with a aerodynamic elliptical(oval) shaft. It was a great conversation piece lol

I don't know Desmond, might be a decent guy but his response to the OPs question is ridicules and makes him look like an internet moron.

Moderators want to suspend me for this observation, go ahead.   Absolutely no value to Desmond's response. just stupid.

Offensive? you're just making yourself look dumber and dumber.

I know your thread is a little old, but I'll let you know in a couple of weeks. I just bought one based on reviews and opinions.

And that was 6 months ago and already "dealt with" by mods ... No need to rehash. Moving on .... ;)

I agree with @Golfingdad, feigning outrage at a 6 month old comment that doesn't involve you is stretching it a bit...

post #36 of 141

Who said I was outraged? I'm not and I wasn't The guy was acting like a dick and I called him on it. Thread is six months old so what? The thread is open for comments, I read the thread because I wanted to see some feed back from average golfers who may have used this club not some bull from an internet bully or coward or troll. Why are you reading this thread? Just out soaking in golf related talk and info? Fine, I do that too sometimes, but not this time, so Desmond's comments may be entertaining to you, but they weren't for me. I'm spending money on a product I would like to know a little more about.
