I like my Tour Velvet grips but they are wearing out to say the least... How are the multi-compund grips that are out there i.e. The Golf Pride Decade?

If you have a good golf shop in the area, you might stop by and get a "grip tour." Lots of new variety in grips the last few years.

I think they are very similar (or else I'm just not all that picky)  I have the mutil-compunds on my irons and wedges, but the stock grip that came on my 3W/hybrid are tour velvet (titleist 910 series) and I really don't see any difference in the feel or playability, personally.

Grip preferences are pretty individual, like most things in this silly sport. I switched to the new decades last year from many years of playing tour wrap full cords, and they're by far my personal favorites. Great feel and very grippy.....Much more so than tour velvets for me in the heat and sweat of Floida summer. Pricey and they seem to wear just a little quickly though.

Grips really are about preference. I need to regrip my irons soon and I really like the new Winn Dri-Tac grips. They have a nice soft, squishy, tacky feel.

If you can't tell a difference in the TV and the NDMC you must have calluses 1/2" think on your hands. No comparison. I, personally, hate the NDMC as opposed to the TV.

IMO the multi compound grips aren't worth the price, as they cost twice as much as Tour Velvet.

Tour velvet mid-size on all clubs other than putter. They hold up well and even in light rain don't slick up the way others do. Also at under $5 pretty much anywhere, it's hard not to use them.

These are probably the best answers to consider.  Depending on the weather you play in, and what feels good to you, that's all that matters.

Golf Pride Multi-Compounds are amazing to me. Not as good as full-cords but well worth the almost 10 bucks a pop. Try and find a "buy so many get so many free" if you decide on them though or you'll be up around $130 by the time its all said and done. Tacki-Mac makes an identical one for about 3-4 dollars cheaper if your not "name-brand". I have a buddy that swears they're as good as GP's but I can't say for certain. My favorite grips of all-time are full-cord Lamkins. They are rough as port-a-john toilet paper and they'll work a helluva callus after the blisters subside.

    • How long should my ball test be?
      Just wanted some thoughts on how long I should test each ball Im considerring. What is a good sample size. 9 holes, 18 or even longer?
    • Question on Twitter: Easiest Way to Shoot Lower Scores in a Week
      What I have learned as I have improved and keep reading about in Bob Rotella's books is that the best way to shoot the score of your life is to focus on practicing the short game, but mostly developing confidence in your putting. Since most of our strokes consist of the short game, by getting just a percentage better there it will translate to more overall success than anywhere else.
    • No Forearm Rotation - Biggest Swing Flaw?
      @Golfer2223 what does forearm rotation have to do with the shoulders?-They are not connected. Forearms can rotate regardless of what the shoulders are doing.
    • No Forearm Rotation - Biggest Swing Flaw?
      Correct. For example: He also says that the forearms rotate during the backswing. Which we know that they do, and quite a bit. How much is too much? On the left, below in both images, is his depiction of zero rotation: On the right, in both images, he demonstrates nearly 90° of turning at the wrist. based on what I know, little of this comes from the upper arm - the majority of it comes from the forearm. Do you disagree with any of that, @Golfer2223? Notice one thing, then, too please. On the left, the plane of the left wrist is pretty much parallel to the sagittal plane. On the right images, it's perpendicular to it. What do we find at the top of the backswing of the game's best players? The issue now appears to be simply trying to determine what in the world you mean by the bold above, particularly because there's really nothing "natural" about the golf swing. What feels natural to you, or seems natural to you, is definitely not natural to all or possibly even the majority of golfers. in my experience I've learned that you can't really talk about the golf swing in terms of what's "natural" or not. The truth of the matter is that for golfers who do this the right amount "naturally" then it simply isn't something we talk about in a lesson. For golfers who do it an improper amount, it may or may not be their priority. Here's a wrist graph from AMM for a very, very good golfer. Note that the wrist (blue line, top left) starts with 50° of supination. It pronates, relative to the upper arm, to a position of 16° pronation at the top. That's a pronation from 50° on one side of the zero mark to 16° on the other side - a pronation of 66°. This doesn't even account for how much the upper arm rotates - the forearm has rotated 66° from the setup position. (Note that above when I said 25° or 32°, that was relative to totally neutral, not to the setup position. The forearms rotated quite a bit more than the 25-32° cited, because they started somewhat supinated.) This graph and these numbers are not unusual. Look, @Golfer2223, it's somewhat incumbent upon you to be clear in what you're saying. It's far from ideal to say things like how you expect to see "zero forearm rotation" (or whatever) but then to claim that it's "relative to the natural shoulder motion" (obviously both paraphrased). Nobody has a clue what you mean by the "natural shoulder" whatever, and many would disagree that anything in this topic area is "natural" to begin with. So, please clarify what you're saying, and be precise and use specific words, or at least define them, provide examples, or both.
    • Best Shot of the Week
      Teeing of on Northdale #7 a short par four 336 from white tees. There is a pond water hazard about 235 or 240 ahead covering a lot of right hand side. Left hand is a small area and high trees to carry. Hit driver and blasted it, carried trees on left hand side and must have gotten a good cart path bounce. When we drove up was 50 yards from center of green. That's a loooong drive for me. Longest yet.
