Bomb Tech Grenade Driver

142 posts in this topic

I noticed a lot of comments on a couple of golf forums about the Bomb Tech Grenade driver after asking if anyone has ever hit it. Has anyone on this golf forum hit it, and if so, what are your comments on it.

Why?

So many good, prior editions drivers out there, why do you want to dick with something called "Bomb Tech Grenade?"

When you take it out of your bag, I'm sure a bird will shit all over it... or you will blow up over it... so I'd say

no.

Haha! That sounds familiar.

Lew, there's going to be a demo ran over at FGI. There's an interesting thread over there right now.

Aside from your ignorance, what's your problem?

Desmond, are you just a golfer or are you also a clubmaker/clubfitter? I have been custom building golf clubs for over 15 years and never had a customer come back dissatisfied. You seem to have a problem which I can see in LBlack14's comment to you.

It's uncalled for. If you can't contribute meaningfully, don't contribute.

I don't have any direct experience with the Bomb Tech Grenade, but I've heard from one person who loves his.

I just got one in for a review. Should get out to try it this weekend.

In a time of war, I found the name offensive. I have nothing against components, but the name is ridiculous

Desmond, are you aware that a component company named Tour Swing has a driver head named the "XPLODE", so I guess you feel this is also a bad name too.

As Mr. Desmond clearly has nothing of value to add to this thread, he's been restricted from it. Sorry Lew. :)

Component companies are fine there is not some big secret to making good golf equipment its a piece of metal on the end of a stick. Jameson what do you think of yorus? Is this a long drive type driver like the Alphas and some of those other component makers?

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!

Erik, I understand where Desmond is coming from since he has no club making or clubfitting experience. I never shoot anyone down for trying get info out on their new golf product. My impression is that he appears to be negative on most of his comments. Thanks for omitting him from this thread.

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: [quote name="Phil McGleno" url="/t/68192/bomb-tech-grenade-driver#post_864402"]Component companies are fine there is not some big secret to making good golf equipment its a piece of metal on the end of a stick.

It does look a bit more simple than most of the OEM drivers, but it's not really a component head.

    • The course with my absolute favorite greens is Eaton Country Club which, despite the name, is far cheaper golf than most courses. A membership is something around $100 a month with no initiation fee or food requirement if I remember correctly. Play golf once a week and you're paying only $25 a round with cart for 18 holes, which is a far better deal than any other course in the area (the 9 hole course I work at is the cheapest in my city at $25 for 9 holes with cart). The greens at this course stimp between 11 and 12 on a daily basis and are the smoothest that I've ever set foot on. Their maintenance crew is fantastic about fixing every little imperfection in the greens. They go over them with a fine-toothed comb every evening to fix anything on the green.  I know there must be some kind of limit to how much play a green like this could sustain, but the course has looked this way every time I've played it (including weekends, weekdays, and such). It's not an enormously busy golf course though, and I don't think it would work on the courses that regularly see 200 or more golfers. I would be willing to bet good money though that, given equal traffic, good maintenance will definitely produce a much higher quality putting surface. The course I used to work for had two people assigned to fix ball marks on the course once a week, both of which had issues with their backs that made bending over for any extended period of time uncomfortable. The greens at that course clearly showed it, with unfixed or only partially fixed ball marks marring every putting surface. The course I currently work at has a maintenance crew that fixes marks whenever they're out to water as well as marshalls that are assigned a couple of holes to maintain during their shifts and I notice that the greens here have many fewer ball marks across the greens. The maintenance crew is also diligent when it comes to regularly verticutting, needle-tining, etc. all of the greens to ensure that they're in top shape. They water the greens up to four times a day depending on the weather conditions as compared to the old course only watering in the evenings and sometimes mornings to save money. As a result the greens at my current course are much more lush and smooth than those at the course I used to work and play at, and I know the difference is the care and attention to the maintenance of the greens (they have similar player traffic).
    • To clarify, I have a push cart. I don't have an umbrella, yet. That probably would have done loads of good keeping the sun from beating down on me. I've got one picked out, but just haven't pulled the trigger yet.  Shooting an 86 was a "decent" to "good" round for me. I felt like I played well. My ball striking was above average today. I had 7 GIR and 7 nGIR. I had 37 putts today, which was my score killer. Oddly enough, most of my 3 putts were on my GIRs! I say this because in the super heat I would think that ball striking would be the first to go, but it didn't for me. Putting was mainly because I'm still working on breaking old habits I had with my old putter and moving to my new putter. Lines were always spot on but I would go back to "popping" the ball like I did with my old putter and would lose it way past the hole.  Definitely need to pick up that umbrella. I imagine that would help a ton. I'm 28 years old and in pretty darn good health/shape and I would have probably died had I actually carried my bag today... lol. Even my lighter "carry" bag.
    • For irons, last year at a Titleist fitting they said I should get the AP1's with the XP 90 gram shaft with a +1/2.  This year I did another free open fitting and they said they wouldn't need to adjust the shaft but I don't remember what shaft they recommended.  Just got fit for a driver last Thursday but i don't think that helps. Scheduled a fitting for Saturday afternoon but who knows if the clubs will still be available then. 
    • I would say nicer golf courses tend to have better greens because of the money it takes to maintain them.  I would say that greens that can routinely hold up to being cut short probably have a healthier denser grass with stronger root systems that allow it to resist damage from pitch marks. I've played on course in Dayton where a pitch mark will just tear up the green versus another course where it just leaves a slight indentation. 
    • Give that man an icy cold beer, stat! I'm relatively young, and I'd take the cart for the breeze between shots and holes as well as the portable shade. What's the point in suffering unless you are practicing for competition in similar conditions? For anyone, I think the physical metabolic toll of moving all that water through to stay cool would tend to lower scores. But you do get longer drives than typical playing conditions, and you may feel extra limber. Older folks face potential heat stroke risk, because they aren't as efficient with heat regulation as a healthy adult. If you are healthy and that's your only day free to play, why not.
