The BombTech Grenade Driver is one the most powerful drivers on the market today that is made by a company that you may have never of before. So who is BombTech? BombTech Golf is one of a small group of independent golf manufacturers making a splash in the golf industry by directly competing with the major golf brands. As you know golf professionals are paid millions of dollars a year to use the golf clubs of the major brands. This cost is then later passed onto the consumer when we purchase these clubs. BombTech bucks this trend by providing high-performance golf clubs for almost half of the price by selling directly to consumers. By not spending money on marketing or sponsorship BombTech is able to sell a high-quality club for a fraction of the price. So, the real question is can a golf produced by a small independent golf manufacturer really compete with the major golf club brands? Let’s find out.

Design and Technology
The BombTech Grenade Driver has been designed to give a player the two things most desired in a driver: high launch and low spin. If a golfer is able to maximize these things, then they will be sure to find themselves having greater distance off of the tee. This breakthrough is accomplished by the optimization of the center of gravity by use of an external weight. Additionally, the G20’s large multi-thickness face produces greater ball speed and an increase in MOI allowing for greater forgiveness.
The biggest question I had going into this review was what PING plugged with this driver: high launching with low spin. I usually hit the ball a bit too low and thought that my spin rate was fine. But after hitting the G20 at the driving range, I found that the ball took off much higher, and dropped ever so slightly. My other concern was that due to the launch characteristics, I was afraid I would lose some of my accuracies. However, I realized that my concerns were unfounded, and my accuracy stayed the same as when I hit my normal driver. If I had one knock on the G20 it is that I didn’t get the normal feedback as I have with other drivers in the past.
BombTech Grenade Driver
- A solid performing club, that will really stand out in the crowd
- When solidly hit, the club is really loud at impact
- Half the price of major brand name golf drivers
- Hard to identify problems, due to low feedback on contact
- No adjustability, unlike other drivers on the market
- Hits a little high for a 10.5 degree driver
There is quite a variety of lofts you can get with the BombTech Grenade Driver. The lofts include 9 and 10.5 degrees.. Surprisingly this 450cc driver has a head weight of 199g. The BombTech Grenade Driver comes with 4 shaft options: Senior (50g), Regular (52g), Stiff (54g) and X-Stiff (56g), with a length of 45.75”.
As you can probably guess, I think the BombTech Grenade Driver is great. It is designed for the golfer who does not want to spend a ton of money on a driver but wants something that can hit the ball far down the fairway. If you want a name brand golf club that is adjustable then this is definitely not the club for you. There are many drivers to choose from on the market, but if you are looking for a moderately priced “game improvement” driver that will give you the power and distance you need, then the BombTech Grenade Driver is the club for you.
