IOmic Grips

What's so special about them? Do they feel REALLY NICE? I'll dish out the $18 for a really nice grip, but won't if they aren't that great.

Floppy,
I tried one out and just did not like it. I really like the grip that comes on the Odyssey putters.

I have one on my putter and love it. It pretty much the same grip that is on the Scotty Cameron Studio Style. Great Feel.

I have one on my Odyssey Black Series i #9. I really like this grip, it took a week to wear down a bit so that it had a sort of powdery soft feel. Once you achieve that soft feel, the grip is amazing. Great traction and doesn't need to be cleaned all that often. My stroke seems smoother and more relaxed as a result of this feel. There is a great variety of colors as well. Only thing to note is that this grip is slightly thicker than the Pingman grip or the Cameron pistol grips even at standard size.

I agree with the above posters. Very nice grip. I currently have a spared Yellow mid sized iomic putter grip which I will use when my current grip wears out.

By the way, I bought mine on eBay for $15 from some seller who sells in bulk. Good deal, I think.

I'm planning to regrip my driver with Iomic Sticky grip. They are pretty steep at $15 a piece.

How's Iomic Sticky compared to Golf Pride Tour Velvet? Is it rubber feel or leather feel?

Very rubbery, I hate it. Then again I like cords. I got mine for 2 bucks a piece clearance at edwin watts, thank god I didn't pay a lot for them cause I switched them out a week later. I prefer the tour velvet over the iomic sticky any day.

Like I said, "clearance at edwin watts" apparently iomic sent them a bunch to try out and no one bought them. It was in store purchase, I had diff colors on each club but that doesn't change how they felt.

They're pricey but I just recently tried out the Stickys and they've been unreal. They feel alot traction wise like tour velvets but once you start using them it almost felt like they softened up and became even more tacky.

Overall really liked the feel and after a few swings you notice the difference in the material, its a polymer, not a rubber, and feels pretty cool. I'm definitely impressed.

I don't think they are worth the price tag. I've tried them when I was using the J33's and wasn't blown away by them. GP tour velvets will do you just fine.

Agreed with wrx. tour velvets are more than enough. The iomic tackys are WAY too tacky and soft.

GP Cords are good grips but they are complete opposites... cant even compare the two. My cords on my protos wore out in no time. My iomics have lasted two years so far... and they do gain more feel after they are broken in.

I've got the Iomic's on my woods, but went with the Tacki Mac corded Itomic's on my irons and they are a LOT nicer. Time to re-grip my woods! Go with the black ones though...the white look good but dirty too quick!

Hey, thanks for the tip! No smell afterwards and the grips are still tacky?

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.

    • PGA Tour Caddies file class-action suit against PGA Tour for use of likeness, bibs
      It's just funny to me since the PGA Tour isn't their employer. The golfers are, so every case they file against the PGA will be tossed out immediately on that grounds alone.  The players require caddies to wear bibs since the players are fined if they don't. The PGA has nothing to do with the transaction besides providing a uniform for the caddy with the entrance fee.
