Bombtech golf?

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Has anyone tried any of the clubs from niche manufacturer Bombtech golf?  Mainly interested in the woods.  Seems like they have a good story but it's hard for me to believe at the price points they have that you really get better (or at least comparable) performance.

Check out this thread. Equipment performs different for everyone but so far testing has proven their claims to false for a large majority of golfers and that the design (at least of the original grenade) was widely flawed and vastly overly hyped.

Their owner lies to consumers. Such as made in the USA claims originally then when he was called on it, it was assembled in the USA, then when he was called on that as well he deflected. The heads are made by Deson in China. He also claimed shafts don't matter. He also sold clubs head only but refused to warranty them when they broke because he “didn't know how they were assembled and by whom and what their certifications are”. And he was assembling the preassembled at the time and had not one bit of clubmaking certification. There's a list of things one could go on and on about.

 

Here's what I'll leave you with. Their heads are decent on center strikes. They're not going to blow anyone else's equipment away and they'll finish behind many in distance categories. Off center strikes, due to the Bulge and roll of the head, the gear effect is horrendous with them. Balls that'd be a Little right with some will be way right with the Bombtech stuff.

 

All I'll say is caveat emptor. It's your money, and you'll get your stuff, whether it works or not for you will be your story to tell.

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.

I would be very wary of anything from this company. It all seems very late night infomercialish.

Wowza. Didn't know that about him or his company. Unfortunate. In this day of social media, if you own a small business, you can get shutdown in a heartbeat if you lie to consumers. Glad the only thing I bought from them was their wedges (when they were 3 for $99)

I happened to try the original Bombtec Driver but found it no better and in some cases worse than the Callaway I was using. I was very fortunate as Sully did honor the money back guarantee and I did get my money back less shipping costs. Would never believe Sully again.

I have the 3.0 driver and 3 wood. I have 3.0 irons and the wedge set. Love them all. I broke the shaft on my 2.0 driver. Called bombtech and no questions asked they sent me a 3.0 driver free of charge. After buying my initial driver 3 wood set Sully personally called me to see if i was satisfied with my purchase and i was very satisfied. Customer service has been above and beyond fantastic.

Ive got the Bombtech 3-wood and used to have the Grenade wedge set.  The wedges werent bad, Im not sure about the 3-wood though.  I cant seem to hit it very well and now you guys are making me wonder if maybe the club is just bad.  I feel like Im very inconsistent with it and struggle to control my direction with it.  Now you guys are making me thinking maybe the club is just bad.

It's always rubbed me the wrong way that the owner refers to the clubs he sells as "My Clubs" when he doesn't even design them or manufacture them himself. He outsources the design work to 4th year university students and has manufacturing done overseas but he's still marketing the clubs as if they're entirely his.

I bought the 72* ultra lob wedge. I found the shaft to be way too light and soft for me. I normally swing stiff flex. 

Also, the grip was poor quality. 

I ended up wrong about 8 inches of lead tape on the shaft near the hosel to get the club were I could game it. Full swing would go maybe 75 yards. All my friends couldn't hit it past 40 yards. 

I found the sole design to be inadequate. It is very low bounce so you have to put a perfect swing on it to get the club under the ball without digging a trench. 

 

All that to say, the company comes off as less than legitimate. They are not trend setters. I think it's like a frat house that decided to sell golf equipment. 

I keep with Maltby clubs I get from golfworks.com for quality, design, and value.

I purchased the driver at one point and had to return it. I requested an x-stiff shaft and what I received was a wet pool noodle instead. Interesting marketing, terrible club.

I guess I will be the devil's advocate here, as I love the irons. I own the 1, 2, and 3 Driving Irons, the 4-PW Iron set and the SW. I have had really good success from the fairway with the Irons. Solid contact and very forgiving. I use the Driving Irons on narrow fairways and longer Par 3s. Until recently, I could not hit Driver off the tee and was using the 1 iron. I finally found a Driver that fit my game. As an aside, I had left my 9 Iron at a driving range, and when I called Bombtech and asked to purchase one, they sent one free. That kind of customer service is hard to find.

I will Devil Advocate as well.  I have the 4-PW irons. 

PROS:
1) I am hitting straighter and flubbing less shots.
2) I love the weight of the heads... is helping me keep the club down and under the ball. 
3) Customer service was great, received phone call directly to check in before the "return date" was past.

CON:
1) I did lose distance... I was never hitting too far with my irons... but my 7 was good for 150-160 in the past and now i'm at 130-140 for example.   I just had to adjust and club down my distances. I compared with angles of my old irons and they are the same, however it's probably the material it was made with. 

Summary: I'm a mediocre at best player usually mid-90s guys... and I did hit my 3 best scores ever since purchasing these irons (85, 86, 89).   I do not own the Drivers or the Woods.  I think if anything, these clubs gave me confidence. Don't know if i'd purchase them again, but the confidence to maybe buy a good set of name brand irons in the future and hope to continue my improvement, and get some of that distance back.

Purely a coincidence. Surely. I'm betting that if we were able to see, both IP addresses from those posters would be completely different. Not the same, at all...

I don't play them and never tried them. But one thing they do well, they market on Instagram. Seems like everytime I get on there, one of the first ad/post I see.

And the 72 deg wedge............ that ought to be fun for some. Wonder if it goes straight up, like if you struggle/can't chip from inside 10 feet off the green -- flop it. 😀
