Well depends on who the player is. I have cut some clone clubs apart and see how they are made. They are thinner in what I call the stress support area and are made out of much cheaper pot metal. Actu

Update / First Impressions: I finally went out and hit the clubs today. I didn't take my launch monitor to get any data and I didn't play a round with them, but I did give them a good working on

LOL with a name like longdrivenate and a admittingly fast SS I do not want to read any stories like Golfer explodes cheap driver gets shrapnel in legs

I use Hole19 for tracking my scores and started to get the B2 emails in January. In early April, I decided to bite. Called Patriot Golf and was offered a free driver if I tested their 3,4 & 5 hybrids. Just pay $150 each. Um...what? The sales rep pleasantly explained the cost protects the company and ensures participation. Not to mention helps support the company staffed by veterans. If I wasn’t satisfied, I could return the clubs for a full refund and keep the driver. I decided to go ahead. $479 and 3 weeks later the clubs showed up.

Time to test! 4th swing with the 10.5 degree B2 Bomber driver...caved the face in. To their credit, it was easy to hit until then. I don’t have the fastest swing speed 105-110mph, so I was surprised when I looked at the club face and found a ball shaped dent. Oh well, it was free right?

The hybrids all performed decently. Easy to hit straight, comparable distances to other hybrids I have hit. But nothing that made me feel like $479 was well spent. The club heads look and feel like late 1990’s tech. Heavier than you would expect and just not pretty. But performance was better than I expected.

Time to call for refund! Talked with a nice fella named Dylan who made me several offers to keep the clubs. Send me a free set of irons and they keep the $479. No thanks. Refund me $225 and I keep the hybrids. No thanks. Refund me $300 and I keep the hybrids. So I took that deal and now have 3 hybrids I might use at some point. And a driver with a dented club face. All for the low price of $179. Not the best deal I have ever made. Would I do it over again knowing what I know now? Nope. Lesson learned.

Thanks for the report. Did you ask them to replace the driver that failed? Even though it's crap, you could pass it on to a beginner.

They would not replace the driver as it was a free promotional item and therefore not covered by their warranty. Oh well.

WTH?

 

Any legit company would automatically replace the driver.
