There’s a lot of excitement in the Golf world about a new underground Driver – called Bombtech Grenade. What is the fuss about it? Is it really longer than the TaylorMade R1, Callaway X Hot Pro, Titleist 913 D3?
Let’s find it out…
Here are the results of a test by Golfballed:
The Grenade had a very comparable launch and spin rating compared to the other drivers. The carry, total distance, and ball speeds from the Grenade were the best of the group, with the ball speed being between four and five miles per hour faster than the other competitors. These numbers are impressive, but what’s even better is the fact that the dispersion of this driver was the tightest by far.[source]

Pretty impressive results for a driver that was built by a few University engineers and compared to the $ budgets the big golf brands have for their R&D teams.
Here’s an interesting Bombtech Grenade Driver Review video:
The Bombtech Grenade driver comes with a Matrix shaft and is only available with 10.5 degrees loft but different shaft lengths. The grips on the Grenade are Pure Pros. The Bomtech Golf Grenade Driver is currently available for $299 directly from the Bombtech Golf website.
