New Golf Shaft Design

Posted by Tyler Sullivan on

 

The Grenade golf shaft has been performing extremely well for the Grenade golf driver. We decided that it deserved a face lift to compete with the New Golf Shafts for 2014.

The Grenade has the same specs as before, the only thing has changed is the paint. The new golf shaft design will be released in early 2014.

Looking forward to a great 2014

CNC Milled putters - Why CNC Vs. Cast or Forged

CNC Milled Putters - Why CNC Vs. a Cast or Forged Putter?

It seems that CNC milled putters are very popular right now, but are very expensive. So, do they offer any additional benefits and will they help you sink more putts?

First, what is a CNC milled putter. A CNC milled putter is a a golf putter that is machined out of one solid piece of material, typically steel. Varying materials will offer different feel and sound profiles, but most common are stainless and 1018 carbon steel. The one piece machining process creates an extremely precise outcome that is very reproducible. The tolerances for a forged or cast putter are much wider. But the tighter tolerances are not the main benefit.

The feel and feedback is why a golfer may want to consider a CNC milled putter. It is a simple concept, when a golf club, golf putter or anything for that matter is produced from multiple pieces versus one solid piece, there is a difference in feel and sound. The feedback and feel from one solid piece can be helpful to many golfers. If you can feel better and receive more feedback you will have a better chance at sinking that putt.

The putter design is crucial to any production process. High MOI putters reduce twisting on off-center putts. It is very rarely talked about, but how often do you think you truly strike the center of the putter face? Not as often as you would like. Those off center hits typically roll off line, which leads to missed putts. If you are using a high MOI putter, it will reduce how far off line those missed putts will go. Like all things golf, we don't all hit perfect shots all the time or even as often as we would like. Better feel, feedback and straighter mis-hits can all help us play a little better!

So next time you are looking for a new golf putter, ask is it CNC Milled, Cast or Forged?

How to hit long distance drives consistently.

Posted by Tyler Sullivan on

How to hit long distance drives consistently.

I get it. All golfers want to hit long distance drives. But how do we hit those long distance drives consistently. Well the two most obvious answers are practice and fitness. But if you don't have the time and energy to be working out all week and time to practice all week it is tough to hit it longer and most importantly hit it more consistently.

The reason for the picture above is the answer to the question, go short to go long? What do I mean? Golf driver length is the least discussed topic in golf because the large golf driver manufacturers can't easily adjust their golf drivers that are sold in stores. So they make the longest possible length that most golfer can hit long, some of the time.

In recent years the golf driver manufacturers have extended those lengths, some golf drivers on average are now 46, 46.5 inches in length and others all the way up to 48 inches. This allows the companies to claim that their current driver model is "longer" but longer in the woods, and probably 1 out of 10 shots is hit solidly.

So what happens if you build a golf driver that is shorter than the new "standard" 46 inches or less. Well it becomes easier to hit, which means more balls in the fairway and more often. The shorter driver length allows more golfers the potential to hit the center of the club face which will create a long distance drive. For this reason, the majority of pro golfers play drivers that are 44.5 inches and some like Tiger go as short as 43.5 inches.

Bottom line, center of the club face equals more consistent long distance drives. One way to get there is to go shorter. I am not saying that you will gain 20 yards by going to a 44.5 inch driver, but you will hit more fairways and hit it long more often than not!

And isn't that what we all want?

Golf Driver Review - AmongMen

Posted by Tyler Sullivan on

Great review of the Grenade golf driver.

"Whoa, that’s the coolest driver I’ve ever seen," exclaims a passing wide-eyed 12-year-old when I remove the cover off of BombTech Golf’s gunmetal black 460CC head and take a few practice swings at the driving range. Sharply accented by a lime green shaft, this wild wood packs a visual payload fitting of its name. Co-designed by faculty and students in the University of Vermont’s Engineering department, the world’s first dual cavity driver tends to evoke an almost pheremonal love it or loath it reaction at first gander.

Tech highlights

While they look nifty, the deep triangular air pockets in the clubhead’s underside are no mere aesthetic flourish. The cavities raise the center of gravity by a smidgeon to diminish ballooning, cut back on drag by 48% which should coax an extra mile per hour of swing speed, and contribute to tighter dispersion on off center hits. The Grenade is also constructed with a two-piece plasma welded cast, a much pricier but more durable production process than the four-piece forge most manufacturers utilize and the stock shaft is an aftermarket quality custom Matrix. Launch monitor data culled from Golfballed.com pitted the Grenade head-to-head against the TaylorMade R1 and three other leading clubs and the Grenade fragged the competition in back spin, carry distance, and total yardage off the tee.

Fire in the hole

Every new fangled driver purports to be straighter, further, and more forgiving on off center hits than its predecessors so when I teed up my first range ball, I did so with a healthy dose of skepticism. But that sweet spot music on a flush hit is a satisfying “Kapoom” that’ll leave you itching to rip another one. My ball consistently sailed well past the two hundred yard marker before plunking down which made this high handicapper, as Phil Robertson says all the time on Duck Dynasty, “happy, happy, happy.” Rotating back and forth between my go-to TaylorMade Burner and the Grenade, a distance edge wasn’t measurably appreciable. However my off-center hits did appear straighter on the Grenade and when it comes to shaving points off your scorecard that is a much more important game improvement variable.

Bottom line

This explosive USGA legal big stick has minimal blowback on impact shy of the sweet spot and will detonate the competition in your next foursome when it comes to club chatter. The Grenade currently retails factory direct from Bombtech for $299."

CNC Milled Putters Vs. Two Piece Putters

Posted by Tyler Sullivan on

CNC Milled Putters Vs. Two Piece Putters

BombTech Golf is nearing the completion of our first putter design. Similar to the Grenade golf driver, the Grenade putter was engineered with the University of Vermont. Our goal is to create a heavy, perimeter weighted golf putter made from the best materials and production process available.

So what is the best production process to make a golf putter? CNC Milled putters are hot right now, but expensive. So do these single piece CNC Milled putters feel or perform better than a two piece putter?

BombTech Golf will be testing a two piece putter versus the CNC Milled putters to determine which performs better and at what costs. Results from the testing will be posted over the next few weeks.

Other than the production method, putter materials plays a factor in feel, roll and overall performance. Stainless steel, cooper, carbon steel, inserts and more.. At this point we are currently leaning towards a 303 Stainless Steel which creates a high quality product with great feel. We will continue to test and bring what is best to market for you.
