Thunderbolt was a broomstick company, active in the early 21st century. Based in Manchester, England, they released the Thunderbolt VII in around 2014.

Many experts feel that the Thunderbolt VII has sacrificed safety for speed; when the tail of one of their broomsticks was smashed off by a Bludger during a match in the 2014 Quidditch World Cup, an inquiry was immediately launched (professional broomsticks ought to be able to withstand all Bludger hits).[1]
