The guys at Bob Burns sent us this "No Bananas 460cc Driver" for testing, and guess what? It was really incredible. At first we thought that it might just be another cheap nock off of the Taylor Made Movable Weight Technology, but we couldnt have been more wrong. Bob Burns truly delivers a high quality and original product when it comes to the No Bananas Driver. We tested it on some of our worst local slicers, and the results were beyond impressive. They were all able to see instant improvements. Their slices turned into fades and straight shots right before our eyes.
Normally we focus on high end equipment, and this driver is no exception. It comes with a new decade style grip, and nice quality shaft, and an awesome monkey head cover. On top of all that, it really will improve your ball flight if you repeatedly slice or fade the ball. Don't let the funny name mislead you. It's an awesome club, and you have to try it to believe it!
Eighty to 90% of golfers tend to fade, push, or slice the ball off the tee. Primarily, two factors cause a slice. The clubface remains open at impact, or the swing path is outside-in. The anti-slice technology of the Bob Burns No Bananas Driver can eliminate the slice from your game forever. The design elements center-of-gravity location, face angle, shaft flex, lie, and hosel offset are geared to help you square the face through impact and provide the additional weighting, placed inside the toe and heel areas, expands the sweet spot and reduces clubhead twisting. The amount of left-to-right spin imparted on the ball decreases dramatically, and the result is straighter, more accurate shots. The two-inch deep, incredibly thin face achieves maximum trampoline effect, while conforming to the USGA legal COR limit. Available in both offset and non-offset 310-cc forged head models, the exclusive No Bananas Driver is guaranteed to help you hit longer and straighter. It comes with a Magilla Gorilla head cover, and No Bananas fairway woods and irons also are available with oversized heads and anti-slice technology.

It works!! My slice has been corrected and I have much more confidence off the tee. I seem to have given up a little distance but it is worth it to be in the short grass rather than in the trees. I would recommend this driver to anyone who has struggled with a sweeping slice.

It's not everyday that you encounter a smaller golf company that really puts out a quality product. And it's even more unusual to find a smaller golf company that has built an excellent relationship with it's customers. The Bob Burn's Golf Company does all of the above.
We cannot say enough positive things about our experiences with the Burns family. They focus on every detail and they truly produce quality products that are consistent with the best of the best in performance and technology. They also offer a more individual and personal experience that some of the larger golf equipment companies cannot provide. And they do it for a much more reasonable price.
This week will be posting several Bob Burns Golf equipment reviews, and we just wanted to start it all off with a little background on the owners and the company. Please continue reading to learn more.
With its headquarters (pictured above) located just north of Appleton, Wisconsin, Bob Burns Golf is a family owned and operated business founded in 1975 by PGA Master Professional and recognized teacher of the game, Bob Burns. The Golf Learning Center is committed to manufacturing and selling golf equipment that does not infringe on the patents or trademarks of other manufacturers. The company designs and manufactures its own lines of custom-made golf clubs, including its line of No Bananas Anti Slice golf equipment; but the company also sells refurbished clubs & sets of irons, in particular, that have been completely refinished, re-polished, re-shafted, and re-gripped. The company prides itself on year-round service to the golfing public, personalized lessons for both beginners and advanced players, and individualized attention to custom club-fitting, club-repair, and modification. Their pro shop features a wide variety of golf merchandise & clubs, of course, but also apparel, accessories, training aids, books, videos, and golf club components. Their teaching and club-fitting facilities and practices take advantage of the latest in swing-computer and launch-monitor analysis.
In its early years, Bob Burns Golf was a one-man operation dedicated, in part, to the repair, modification, and restoration of golf clubs but also to instruction and, most notably, perhaps, to the manufacture of custom-made clubs, including woods cut and handcrafted from unfinished blocks of persimmon or laminated maple.
