My experience with them was the original driver. My friend had one, he let me hit it, I crushed it close to 300 almost dead straight, so he let me use it when played together for a few rounds and I was hitting the best drives of my life. Finally take the plunge to order it, mine comes (same specs) and I can't hit it to save my life, neither can my buddy or anyone we played with, yet all could still hit his really well. We compared the clubs side by side after a bit, his club head was more closed than mine (he didnt put new shaft or pull and reset or anything like that). Sent pictures to BT they agreed, replaced the driver and it was the same story. I'll admit when I hit the thing, it went far, when I didnt it was bad and it was a 1/18 good hits with the one I ordered

O.K. you guys got me, I knee jerk purchased the 52/56/60 degree wedges off of Instagram I watched, I think GM-Golf do a review on the wedges and he liked them? so I went ahead, I also upgraded from a 1000 year old set of wedges, so they have been great for me, I loved them....... Until

I recently bought a 48 Degree wedge from Sub70 golf and OMFG I do feel like i got subpar wedges from Bombtech(no pun intended... Maybe?) This all being said, when I bought the Bombtech wedges I could not tell the difference between them and a name brand, now that I'm a little better and my swing speed is so much higher than when i bought them, I feel like the shafts are not quite stiff enough to be called stiff IMHO, and the spin numbers have to be pretty low as well, reason I say this, I don't draw a single club in my bag, except these wedges, they draw every time from full swings, I am GUESSING this is from the shafts being not quite as stiff as I like? and a drawing ball is a less spinning ball IIRC.

FYI Rick Shiels did a Youtube Review of the Driver (fist gen IIRC) and he liked it, and said nice things.

I just received the wedge set today and they look nice/ feel pretty good chipping around the house so far. Would love to hear more of your thoughts  on the fit and feel aside from the shafts. I'd also love to hear about the Sub70 experience since they're next on deck in my play-test list. 

You've definitely got me worried since I have a 111mph avg driver swing speed and about 85-90mph on my wedges 😆. I should be able to get on a chipping green this weekend and will make sure to get some stats on my 56 and 60 first and then compare them to the BT set with some video.

I recently received the Grenade 3.0 driver and 3-wood to playtest and purchased the black wedge set (yep, Insta got to me😅) . Hoping to get out this weekend and get some concrete data on all the clubs with video for a stand-alone post in the unofficial review thread.

Jury's still out on the Grenade 3.0 driver but I can say this, BT has been super responsive and helpful with the customer support. Shortly after I put in my order for the wedges a different promo code came out than the one I had. I shot off an e-mail and got a response in under 12h crediting me the balance. 

I had a separate issue with the 3-wood where the shaft made a horrible splintering/cracking sound on the downswing of a big cut. There's no visible damage on the shaft but I wasn't comfortable playing with it anymore. I sent them an e-mail yesterday about it and they addressed the issue immediately and offered to replace it no questions asked. 

Time and some more play will determine if the're any good. I can say this without spoiling anything though--the driver is stupidly loud! I had an older man move a couple bays away at the range!

Honestly, I liked them until i got the Sub 70 wedge in my hands (KBS Tour 120 S) It is so amazing it makes these other wedges feel dumb. I must also add in, Ive never used a "new" wedge besides the Sub 70 and the Bombtech. 80 Yards and in, I like the Bombtech set, I just don't like having to take full swings with them. Will be upgrading all my wedges to Sub 70 in November. (limited edition wedges coming out)

Had a buddy who used these. He swore that they are the best things in the world. Gave the wood a try and it was nothing special. I did lose some distance on them, but was able to seem to hit it straighter. They have a very strong ad campaign going on throughout all social media. I swear I see them every time I log into Instagram. Either way, I have heard mixed reviews on them. I personally did not enjoy them, but does not mean you might. I would  say there are definitely better clubs out there that could be used instead

These clubs are great. Im a casual golfer so you can take my opinion on the quality with a grain of salt. I have swung more expensive clubs and for me the bombtech irons and driver were just as good. The 72° wedge is super fun to flop with. I dont have the woods so cant speak on those. However, the customer service has been ridiculously good and I've been buying from them since 2014. If I have broken a club, they have shipped me a brand new one. Often times the newest model as they typically sell out of their stock very quickly. Overall this is a great company and I'd recommend them 10 times out of 10.

I was using some old taylormade ATV wedges I bought at Play It Again as I only started taking my golf game seriously a few years ago and I rarely played wedges around the green, mostly bump and runs with my 9i or PW. Well as my game improved I thought it would be nice to have new wedges and get that spin everyone was talking about. I looked around and saw the deal for the 3 wedge set plus a discount code so I pulled the trigger thinking what they hell if I don't like them I can return them or just keep them around as practice clubs. It took a while to get used to them but right now my distances are pretty much dialed in and I am definitely getting more spin than the old wedges (though to be fair they were pretty beat up when I bought them). I did bring one to my local Roger Dunn to try out some other name brand wedges in the same loft and bounce and I did not see much difference in spin and distance. I still blade and chunk shots once in a while but it is a blade style wedge. Might be time to consider the cavity back wedges that everyone seems to be coming out with but for sure customer service has been great with BT. The first set I ordered had a nick in the finish so they replaced it right away with a brand new set. A few weeks later I had a deep gouge in the sole of one wedge which I found odd because I hadn't been playing that particular wedge much and I wasn't hitting off bad lies recently but again they still replaced right away. If anything I agree with what most people are saying. The clubs are hit or miss especially for the price you pay but customer service is excellent. Sully knows what he is selling and to whom. These are not your golfaholic, golf gear head, aspiring tour pro clubs. These are clubs for your every man who just needs some clubs to get out and hit some balls after a long day of work.
