Grips, Grips, Grips (Equipment, Not Your Hands)

69 posts in this topic

I have been using Golf pride tour wrap grips, but my wedges have the Golf pride Tour velvet grips, and I can't decide. Which are better? Neither? What is the best grip for the money?

I see you are located in TX, you may want to consider going with a full cord grip. It really makes a big difference for me in the hot humid summers here in TN. They take just a little getting used to in terms of the abrasiveness, but I never got any blisters or anthing.

The extra grip really helps me keep a light grip pressure when I'm sweating in the summer heat, and since they are tougher on the skin if you do choke them, it encourages a light grip in all weather

I completely agree.

Golf Pride New Decade

i second this. the New Decades are GREAT grips. however, it is ALL personal preference. some people hate them. full cords are nice too in hot, humid states

Thanks for all the tips guys! I will try them out. I have to admit that I have noticed a little slippage with the wrap style grips. A long session at the driving range saw me launch my 5 wood farther than the ball it hit. Of course, a wet cheap glove contributed there, I have since switched to Footjoy Weathersof cadet gloves, and haven't helicoptered a club since.

Give the New Decade multi compounds a try. As others have said, these are the best grips that I have used.

Stick with Golf Pride. The Tour Velvet grips ( http://golfpride.com/grips/noncord/t...t_62round.aspx ) are what I use, and they are great. You can also look into the Golf Pride New Decade Multi-Compound grips ( http://golfpride.com/grips/cord/mc_nd.aspx ) which have a great feeling and look great(you can personalize the color of the grips). Whatever you do, stick with Golf Pride. They have much more feel than Winn Grips.

I see that you are somewhat new to the game; if I may make a recommendation…

Whatever grips you do choose for your clubs – do the re-gripping yourself. The start-up expenses will cost you some cash (that is, if you don’t have on hand the rubber club clamp, hooked utility knife, double sided tape, solvent, and vice grip) but you will end up saving money in the long run.

I do intend on regripping them myself, and I already have a vice, so I just need to buy a rubber adapter for it and I think I am go for launch. I think I will stick with the tour wraps, the velvets seem to deteriorate a little faster and turn your hands black sooner, so I want to get more for my money.

Here's a quick primer on gripping your clubs. Just take your time, it's easy as pie. When I use this method, I use mineral spirits instead of grip solvent. It's cheaper and set up quicker.

Sweet, I will check that out. I need to make all my grips the same. Right now I have the stock titleist grips on my driver and wood, tour wraps on my irons, tour velvets on two of my wedges, and a winn dual compound on my 60*. That makes for a very inconsistent feel from teebox to approach.

For my irons i use the new GP MultiCompound decade grips in white and blue. All my wedges have the GP dd2's in yellow and my driver, 3 wood, and 5 wood have the blue dd2's.They all really have a different unique comfortable feel to them.
