Grips for irons -- No glove

13 posts in this topic

I'm looking to re-grip all of my irons. What is a cheap grip reliable to buy for all my irons, I don't wear a glove if that matters.

I've been looking at some Sharpro Dualcord velvet grips, but I read online they deteriorate pretty fast, anyone have any experience with these?

The best 'cheap' grips that will last a while are probably the Golf Pride Tour Velvet or the Lamkin Crossline. Each will run you about $3.00-$3.50, if you do it yourself. If a shop does it for you they will be $5-6 each. Both are also available in in half or full cord also I think, if that is what you want.

I haven't played the Sharpro grips before, but have use the 'knock-off' brands before. They are great for a while, but the do wear out a little faster. You can pretty much use the knock-offs and change them twice as often or use the premium grips and pay twice as much, but you won't need to change them as often. Either way, you pay about the same. That is if you like having fresh grips. Some people don't ever change them. I used to go with cheap grips and change twice a year. Now I don't play as much so I get the better grip and change them once a year.

I've used the Sharpro dual grips. I still have a few on my wedges. I think for the money they're a terrific grip. I've had no wear issues, but I tend to change my grips more often than I probably should.

I was reading that the Sharpro dual grips are for someone wearing one glove. How is the feel with no gloves?

I don't wear a glove and use the Golf Pride New Decade, they are more expensive but with a little TLC they will last quite a while. After about 5 or 6 rounds I dunk them in soapy water, scrub them with a soft bristle brush, rinse and dry. I can get close to 100 rounds in by doing this, I might change out my driver and wedge since they get hit the most but the rest will last an amazing amount of rounds.

I have seen these grips on eBay for a lot less then retail. I have seen 8 grips going for about $50.

If you're going gloveless, I would definitely go Winn.

Lamkin has a few grips that are inexpesive and can be worn without a glove: Performance Plus, Crossline Tour, Crossline, and Perma Wrap. For Golf Pride: Tour Velvet, Player's Softie, and Tour Wrap. I like the Softie with no glove and there's a sale on them right now (Golfworks or Golfsmith?). These grips are about the same price as the Sharpro and probably higher quality.

I would expect that they are like the Golf Pride Decade Multi-Compound. My wedges have that grip on them. For short shots, you wouldn't have a problem, but with full swings, I'm not a huge fan. They just don't feel that good IMO. (Great grips if you wear a glove though.)

I've never really used Winn grips in irons, but I've felt the DSI's. They were nice, just not for me. Try them and see if that's the case.

Lamkin Crossline for me. Great value and they have a fantastic tread pattern; plenty of grip even when pretty damp.

I don't wear a glove and have Golf Pride Tour Velvets on my irons and Lamkin Crossline on my wedges. I'm quite happy with both.

anyone have anything negative to say about these before i get them?

Those are fine entry level grips. For $2 each you can't go wrong. Personally, I'm not a fan of the softie grips. They're well, a little mushie feeling for me. Try them before you have them installed. my buddy loves his, you may too!

    • TST Member Review - The Tee Claw
      Product Name: The Tee Claw
      Product Type: Tee Holder for Golf Mats
      Product Website/URL: www.teeclaw.com
      Cost: $15 Ratings (out of 5):
      Quality: 4
      Value: 4
      Effectiveness: 4
      Durability: tbd
      Esthetic Appeal: 4   Link to Discussion Thread   My Member Revie I was able to take the Tee Claw to one of our open local ranges on Sunday. As stated above, I cut down a few tees ahead of time to the right height so I wouldn't have to do it at the range. I set the Tee Claw in the mat below then put my driver next to it to get the right height. This mat is an All Turf mat, which is similar to the Real Feel mats with a little less dense weave. The mat is made of woven fibers. At the range, the first thing I noticed was this range has two types of mats; a cheap imitation turf mat where the rubber tee goes and a tighter weave mat. The Tee Claw had no issue with the woven mat, but would not grab the cheap mat fibers. The video below shows this. The cheap mat only has fibers that run vertically and are not woven together. Undaunted, I used the woven mat for the test. I set the Tee Claw up with just one lanyard pulled straight back. This distance is about 30 inches. I hooked the tee under the mat with a tee as is suggested in the Tee Claw site video. The tee fits snug into the Tee Claw base. I used my driver to test the set up. The Tee Claw moved after the shot, but the tee stayed in place. I was worried that I would lose the tee, but this didn't happen. This will save on tees if this happens routinely. I took three swings with this set up. The Tee Claw came loose after the shot, but stayed on the mat.
      Next, I set up the Tee Claw with two lanyards. The second lanyard was set up as a guide for my swing path. This will come in handy as a training aid.
      After hitting, the tee stayed in. The Tee Claw moved. You can see below, it recoiled and twisted a bit. It took a few seconds to untangle it and set it back up. If you are the kind of player who rapid fire hits balls, this may get annoying. But if you are like me and take your time, the extra set up time is not an issue. If I am doing slow motion drills, I would use the rubber tee. But once I am hitting to observe ball flight, I would use the Tee Claw instead.
      Lastly, mats seem to be the key for the Tee Claw to work. Good mats with a weave work the best. I have two mats at home, the All Turf mat I showed above and one I got when buying a Birdie Ball net. They are below. I apologize for not cleaning the dead grass off the mat! It was cold out. The Tee Claw had no issues with either of these mats. I would take the mat type into consideration when you purchase the Tee Claw.
      At $15, the Tee Claw is not a big investment and worth the money for being able to set your tee height while practicing on mats. I've resorted to cutting down rubber tees to the right height before, but this is a better way. Try it out!

      I can't recall ever quitting for a reason other than rain.  And I will play through a certain amount, especially if I have a cart with a windshield.
