Grips, Grips, Grips

What Grips do you guys prefer for Drivers, Irons / Wedges, and Putters?

I prefer the New decade grips for my irons and recently put one on my driver and it feels very different.  Not bad, just a little weird.  Anyone else have a similar situation?

I know that you guys wont all agree on one particular grip.

Just regripped my driver with a Decade multi-compound midsize +1 wrap.  It originally came with a TM branded  Decade and it was pretty good for the dry climate I live in, so I kept it the same. My irons are Titleist branded Golfpride Tour Velvets (round, turned logo down) and my wedges are Lamkin Crossline Tours.  Putter is a Lamkin Crossline Paddle.

I've got the NDMCs on all of my irons and fairway woods, a GP DD2 on one of my drivers, a NDMC one another, and the stock grip +2 wraps on my VR STR8-Fit driver. On my wedges I have standard Titleist/Golf Pride Tour Velvet on my wedges, with a couple of extra wraps. HOWEVER, my PURE Grips and installation gun were delivered yesterday, so I'll be swapping out grips on something. Havent decided what I'm putting them on yet. Maybe my JPX-800 Pro's.

I play the Golf Pride New Decade on all my clubs, even one of my putters has that grip.  I'm am sold on them, I don't wear a glove and like the rough texture, plus I play in a humid area of the country and they hold up on those hot, humid summer days.

What other grips have you used for comparison?  I demo'd the BCT at a local golf store, and liked the feel, but I currently have had the GP Tour Velvet on most of my clubs for almost two seasons with good results.  For my next grip, I am looking for better moisture control and responsiveness, which, according to the GP grip selector, the BCT is the highest ranked in these categories.

The rub is that the BCT is nearly three times the price and more firm verses the Tour Velvet.  If the BCT lasts longer with better overall results, then it may be my next grip.

I prefer the Tour Velvet too.  I don't like cord grips.  Used them briefly a long while back.  I've also used the Tour Wraps.  I think I just prefer the lighter feel I get the Velvets.  I have no interest i paying for the new high dollar grips.  I just don't see any advantage for added cost.  I change my grips at least yearly, sometimes twice in  year - just can't justify that expense.

I have GP Tour Velvets on all my clubs, with the exception of my Bobby Jones fairway and hybrid that have the original Bobby Jones branded Winn V17 grips on them (lightweight).  I have a Tiger Shark Ultratac grip coming to try on my putter.  I love the feel of the Tour Velvets, and the price can't be beat.

I have lived a sheltered life when it comes to grips, but, I have no regrets as I like the Tour Velvets.  Whenever I try another grip, the TV is the standard to which all is compared.  Cords seem a bit too firm for my liking, but the BCT seemed  a bit tamer, while having better moisture control (so they say).

It will most likely come down to price, and the TV's will most likely stay.  I will probably buy one BCT just to check it out...who knows.

You're gonna love the PUREs... I have the soft wraps on my clubs and love them... and the installation couldn't be any simpler.

Believe it or not, I've had the grips and installation tool for a few weeks and havent had the chance to do my own. I did use their tool to install NDMCs for a friend, and it was really simple and quick. I was very impressed. But yeah, I cant wait to try PURE's actual grips out.

I have tried the Golf Pride Tour Velvet, the Golf Pride New Decade MultiCompound, the Golf Pride Tour Wrap 2G, and Winn Lite firm. They are all fine grips (Tour Wrap 2G and Winn Lite) not so great when wet. My favorite, and one I have on all my clubs is the Lamkin Crossline Full Cord. They are great in all weather conditions and give me great control.

Lamkin Performance + 3gen mid-size on my irons and wedges.  GP Tour Wrap built up with tape on my driver.  Stock Rossa/TaylorMade on my putter, I think it's a Winn.

I have pretty big hands & have sore fingers on my right hand after a round.    I put a Lamkin Oversize grip on my LW & absolutely love it.     Just ordered a grip kit from Golfsmith & will be changing all of my clubs over to this grip - just feels so much more substantial to me.        Regular grips feel like a pencil by comparison ...

    • Travel Bag that fits in a typical Uber trunk
      I have one of these that I inherited from my dad. I think I am missing the pin. Sadly I don't think they make it anymore but one was sold on ebay for 61 clams. It may work for you if you can locate it.  
    • Reading Greens
      Putting skill is based on three things. Reading greens, hitting your target line, and distance control. Missing one out of the three can bleed into the other two and cause you to be a poor putter. I would say green reading isn't going to hurt you as much as having poor distance control or very inconsistent start lines.  My Edel putter influenced my putting more because I lost a ton of strokes three putting. That wasn't misreading greens for me.   
    • Golf backswing tips
      Here is another youtube video that is very simple and straight forward that I really like..concentrating on getting to the first position really helps me keep centered too....just short and simple    
    • Reading Greens
      So your prior experience didn't matter in getting the most out of it. That's good to know. Generally putting skills do also track with HCP (assuming a fairly balanced game) for the average population at each HCP. I think AimPoint has great value. I'm just not ready to spring for the big bucks yet. I think the visualizations they put out like the ones I posted are very helpful for golfers playing for a few years like me to get some of the basic concepts. I have a chance!  Interesting. I probably suffer from both, but distance control may have been a bit more of an issue, because I hadn't even correctly identified that my putter had an off-center sweet spot when I started.
    • Bought the wrong flex wedge... should I return?
      I hope it's not the club maker that was in that condition? In general, the salesmen don't really know anything about club making. Ask specifically for the club maker and he can do what you ask. In any case what @70sSanO suggested makes perfect sense, but I'm not sure how much you planned to cut. You'd need to cut quite a bit to get a different flex number. Here's my favorite shaft the DG. http://www.golfshaftreviews.info/index.php/dynamic-gold-golf-club-shaft-review/ Notice that you'd need to cut an inch or so to get kind of the same flex from one to the other. The actual difference is about 2", but you have to fudge the overall effect of having a shorter shaft. For instance, S300 might be perfect for your shorter irons, but might be too flexible for the long irons. That effect will be somewhat unpredictable and might require a lot of iteration.   A modern Wedge flex has a specific kick point. They have a strange taper to help spin the ball better. http://www.mizunoforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1453 In the past there probably was no difference. . .   That's better only more expensive, and shortening from the tip will stiffen it only a little bit. If you are getting something like an S300, it might still not be optimal as it is generally lower launching. You might want to have a higher launching shaft for a wedge. R flex might have been okay. Give the R a good testing before switching out to see if you like the stiff more or not? My advice is to try a bunch of wedges (used or otherwise) at your local store to find one that gives you your best launch conditions for a wedge. I haven't done this myself, but I have many friends who have gotten them fitted and they love their wedges now. The stock Mack Daddy and MD 2 seem to be perfect for me anyway. Haven't tried the others as they were not on sale, but I would guess any of the stock shafts would be fine for me.
