What golf clubs should you carry?

What golf clubs should you carry? 

Legally, you can only carry 14 golf clubs. So what 14 are you carrying and what will help your game most.

Each golfer is different in their approach, but you should choose your clubs that will give you the best chance to score low.

My current golf bag 

Driver - 9 Degrees Stiff Flex

3 Wood - 15 Degrees Stiff Flex

4 Hybrid 

4-PW Iron Set - Stiff Flex

52 Degree Gap Wedge

56 Degree Sand Wedge

60 Degree Lob Wedge

Blade Putter

I will rotate out clubs based on the course, the conditions and how my game is feeling on a particular day.  I like to throw in a 2 driving Iron or 1 Iron often when it becomes really windy. On a day that its fairly wet I may swap out some low irons like my 2, 3 and 4 and replace with all hybrids.  I own far more than 14 golf clubs which gives me more options to take on a certain type of golf course and varying conditions I may.

I would love to hear what is in your golf bag and do you carry only 14 golf clubs.

So what is in your bag?

What golf driver loft is best for your game?

Posted by Tyler Sullivan on

What driver loft is best for your game?

First let me say, each golf driver is different. But many golfers play too little loft because they are use to playing a 9 or 8.5 degree. So what happens when you play too little of loft. More dispersion and less distance. Playing a higher lofted driver helps with overall accuracy and carry distance.

Many tour players have switched from lower lofted drivers to higher due to these factors. Golf driver technology has also changed and loft has become more important than ever.

The Grenade golf driver has a slightly raised center of gravity. This COG was designed to decrease the ballooning effect. This is achieved, but BombTech golf recommends that you play more loft than normal.

The COG placement creates a up and out ball flight that creates a penetrating and accurate ball flight.

So if you are use to always grabbing a 9 degree, try a 10.5 degree golf driver. You will be amazed what it can do for your game.

Golf Shaft Flex Chart

Posted by Tyler Sullivan on

How to choose the right golf shaft flex?

Let me say, that every golf shaft company varies in their flex ratings and measurements. This chart is designed to give you a basic guideline for most golf driver shafts.

What can you expect if you choose the wrong golf shaft flex for your unique golf swing?

1. Too stiff - You are playing a golf driver shaft flex that is too stiff. What can you expect? Your trajectory will be low and to the right with a loss in distance potential.

2. Too soft - You are playing a golf driver shaft flex that is too soft, what can you expect? The common assumption is that you will be hitting a large fade or slice because it is too soft. This is incorrect. You can play a softer shaft and be penalized less than playing a shaft that is too stiff. Although it will take more practice on timing and tempo, a golfer can always go down a flex and not hinder there game as much as going up in flex.

For example: My average swing speed is around 118-120 mph and I normally swing Stiff flex. I have played an entire round of golf with an Regular flex in my driver. Although it felt "whippy" and played soft, I was able to find the fairway all day and still have good distance.

With this said, let's find you the right flex right off the bat! I hope this golf flex chart shown above helps you choose the right golf shaft flex.

We offer 2 options in our BombTech Driver seen below.  What flex will you choose?

How to build your own golf driver?

Posted by Tyler Sullivan on

How to build your own golf driver?

Preparation is key! The actual process of building a golf club or golf driver is fairly simple. But, it is the preparation that makes the difference between a golf club head flying off or staying on in any condition.

Step 1: Prepare your club head

This is one of the most important steps in the process. Use a hosel abrading sleeve to rough up the inside of the hosel. Manually abrade the hosel or use a drill bit on medium speed to reduce burrs and scuff up the hosel for better epoxy adhesion.

Step 2: Prep your golf shaft

Measure the inside of your hosel. Once you have determined the actual depth of the hosel, add 3+/- mm to your measurement. Take this measurement and mark this depth on your shaft with tape or a marker. Painters blue tape works extremely well and is easy to remove. Once your hosel depth is marked on your shaft, it is time to "prep" your golf shaft. Sand off enough paint to show the graphite without cutting into the graphite material. Be very careful on this step. Being too aggressive will weaken the integrity of your custom golf driver.

Step 3: Mix your epoxy

There is many types of epoxies on the market. The majority of options work well, but I prefer a 24 hour epoxy as the overall shear strength is typically much higher than a quick curing epoxy. Mix your epoxy rigorously, 30-40 seconds. A recommend option is to add glass shafting beads. The shafting beads will help create a straight and centered installation of the shaft. A small pinch is all that is needed (10% of the mixture).
Add the shafting beads during your mixing process.

Step 4: Install your ferrule

Measure your depth of the hosel with your ferrule held in place. Mark this depth on the shaft. Once you have done this place a small amount of epoxy on the shaft. Hammer your ferrule onto the shaft, to the depth marked. Clean the epoxy off with epoxy solvent wipes, paper towels or a lint free rag.

Step 5: Install your shaft

The most common mistake during this process, is putting too much epoxy into the hosel. Do not pour epoxy into the hosel of your golf driver head. Take your epoxy applicator and place a moderate amount of epoxy inside the hosel without placing too much in the bottom of the hosel. *Putting too much epoxy inside the hosel will cause epoxy to push upside the golf shaft and create a stiff end that will weaken the shaft and cause the driver to break at the hosel. Coat the outside of the golf shaft with a generous amount of epoxy and place inside the hosel with a slight rotation. Clean the epoxy off.

Step 6: Let it dry! If it is a 24 hour epoxy, let your golf driver dry for a minimum of 6 hours depending on the brand.

Step 7: Measure your golf driver shaft

Using a golf club ruler, place your driver at a 45 degree angle as if you were playing the club. Place the golf ruler underneath the sole of the club. At this point, mark you desired length with chalk or painters tape.

Step 8: 

Cut your shaft

Using a hack saw or a chop saw to cut your shaft where marked.

Step 9: 

Almost done..Time to put on your grip

Measure the length of your grip. Mark this length minus a few millimeters with chalk. Place double grip tape on the shaft, coat the double sided tape with grip solvent. Spray or pour additional solvent into the grip and swish around. Place your golf grip onto the golf shaft firmly and insure it is straight. Wipe off excess solvent

Step 10:

Kick your feet up, or head to the range to test your new custom golf driver.

What is the face angle of a golf driver?

Posted by Tyler Sullivan on

What is the face angle of a golf driver? And what does it mean for your game?

Golf drivers from 2 years ago and before were manufactured with closed face angles from ranging from 0.5 - 2 degrees. A closed golf driver face was thought to help control a slice.

But a closed face angle merely points your club left of target and doesn't solve the problem of hitting a slice. A very closed club face of 1 degree or greater can impact ability to work the ball. The ability to work the ball is hugely important when trying to shape different drives and hit tough shot patterns.

So what do the pros hit? The majority of golf pros on tour play a neutral or open face angle. This allows them to work the ball in all directions with ease. As a closed club face would hurt there ability to work the ball.

What is the right Face Angle for your game? The majority of golfers should be playing a neutral or 0.5 degree closed face. If you are looking to cure a slice through a closed face angle, it will only help but not cure it. And the degrees closed will have to be very strong to truly make any impact.

If you are thinking about face angle and what it means, unless you are playing a fully offset golf driver. I highly recommend playing a neutral club face. You will hit where you are aiming and have the ability to work it like the pros.
