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.

My point was simply that if you read the whole thread, and not just stopped after Mr. Desmond's rude comments, you would have seen that a mod had already "called him on it."  There is no rule against bringing up old stuff at all, I'm just saying that 6 months after the fact it serves little purpose, especially since it'd already been done.

 

P.S.  @jamo wrote a good review of this club (that he linked in this thread) so I suggest that you go check it out.  Sounds like he really liked it.

Mr Desmond normally has very insightful comments regarding equipment not sure what set him in the wrong direction here. Anyways I have heard a number of good reviews including @jamo's review. It is great to see a new face on the market.

This has been my observation as well. His response really surprised me, and I was wondering the same thing.

Okay guys, seriously, the off topic stuff should have been over six months ago.

Can I just add,.. Jamo's review was superb!
Very informative on every level! And as I'm not a fan of adjustability, at least not yet, I find these kind of reviews very interesting! If your out there jamo? Do you have any more?

I haven't gotten to play any rounds in the last few months because of busyness and weather (and I don't really use a driver at the range much), but at the end of the season I was rotating between the BombTech and a Nike VR_S Covert Tour.

I essentially bought mine at the end of the season based your review jamo and my conversations with the rep on the website.  He was also very helpful with my questions, and I had a few. ;)  I really look forward to getting some more playing time in with it, which probably won't happen until March when I head to FL for a couple weeks.  It is a great club I love that it is not adjustable as well.  Lighter, faster and somehow it feels easier to control.  I don't really get how it works, but don't really care either as long as it functions how it should.

Ok, so with all of the above distractions out of the way.

 I received the Grenade about three weeks ago and here is a copy and paste of my post from elsewhere. I thought I could ad something of value to this thread.

 

I bought one 3 weeks ago, they were on sale for $199 so I thought I would pull the trigger.

 My current drivers are razrfit and the razr fit extreme. I play them with the face set to open and my miss is usually a pull hook.

 With the grenade I was slicing right out of the box and bad too. Took me about about 1200 balls and three weeks to figure out what was happening. It plays a little heavier and I think it was pulling the head out on my down swing and causing me to outside in the ball.    Now it seems I can hit this driver as good as I hit the razrs. My miss is a push now, with the Callaway it was a hook.

After I got this thing under control I decided to do a side by side comparison with my two Callaway drivers.

 So it was off to the range and I compared all three of my drivers side by side. Hit 250 balls. The razrs were custom fit for me with after market shafts and I was able to change those out as a comparison as well.  I would hit a few balls at a time with each driver ensuring that I could get used to each driver's weight and get  a good couple of  swings with each driver. I did this several times over two hours at the range. I wanted to get a true feel for which driver was longer and straighter.

The last 50 balls or so I was tired but I was taking my best swings and getting the best results with all three of my drivers.

 Results of my unscientific experiment. Grenade was consistently longer than both of the Callaways. The balls were landing closer to the fence more often, I'm sure of it, also, my longest and straightest drive of the day came from the Grenade. Dispersion, hard to say which driver had the narrower dispersion, no hooks with the Grenade but more pushes than the Callaways. If forced to offer an opinion I'd say the Razr had a smaller dispersion than both the Razr Extreme and the Grenade but that is probably because I have had the Razr a long time and it was my only driver for a year before I bought  the Extreme and 14 months before I bought the Grenade. Ball flight, The Grenade Ballooned much less than the Callways, only a couple of times and some of those range balls are pretty beat up.  The Callaways generally had a lower ball flight but ballooned more often. The roll out couldn't be observed because the range has a back fence that all of the well struck balls would bounce against.

 The  sound on a well struck ball is second to none on the RFE, the Grenade is a close second. The feel on both the Grenade and the RFE is Butter

Heel hits on all three clubs will usually end up on the fairway. Toe hits on the RFE and the RF will draw for me, a toe hit on the Grenade slices.

 I hope to add more to this in a couple of weeks after I play the grenade for a few rounds. I think for the price though the performance is remarkable.

 Quality seems top notch, if the paint is indicative of the build quality, and it is a solid club, this driver should last for years and years.

 It really is a beast but you have to keep control of the club head. It is longer than my razr Fit, I'm sure of that. I won't know really how long this thing can be until I play it a little more. Is it more forgiving? I'm not sure. I am going to bench my Callaways and try this on the course for a few rounds and see what happens.

If they add a V shape it might act like a boat hull through the grass and direct the travel.

Wonder if that is against the rules?

Lots of clubs have been designed with the "boat hull" concept.

I think it was some cobra hybrid that had those grooves in the bottom of the club,

The first generation Cobra Baffler IIRC.

I also seem to remember someone posting pics of an old persimmon FW that had a distinctive "boat hull" design.
