Tl;dr, I liked it a lot.
Jamo, thanks for doing the review!
Hmmm, should be interesting. It is an odd name ... that sort of makes me think of late night Golf Channel informercials, and also makes me think of Jack Hamm. :)
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 sound is actually pretty nice.
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
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.
