16 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

I need to replace my grips asap.

What could you recommend to combine durability and feel?

I am considering Golf Pride New Decade Multi Compound Coloured.

I bough win soft grips just 3 months ago and they are just in bits. Appaling quality.

Thank you for your advice.

Serge

Love my Iomic Sticky 2.3's. Very pricy. After about 40 rounds, they still look and feel new. Got mine on eBay in bilk and from regripit.com.

You'll find lots of love here for Pure grips.

I have the GP multi compund new decade and love them...

Great wear and grip..

I wanted to try the Iomic but could not locate any local and was not comfortable making that investment without seeing them first...

But overall happy with the GP ...

Best of luck..

I cannot recommend Pure Grips enough.  First off, I'm a sweater.  I mean big time (family curse).  After hearing about them here (and on the PGA Merchandise show) the company was nice enough to send me a sample pack.  Immediately placed an order for two sets.  I have had zero problems with them slipping, but what baffles me is the durability.  I mean yeah...they say "one year guarantee" but I was leery about that.  Not now.  I hit a lot of balls.  It's nothing for me to hit balls at the range say 4 times a week, not including one league and once or twice on the weekend.  I've had the Pure grips on since early spring and they look like I put them on yesterday.  I'm simply amazed, because I've had others (Winn especially) that showed wear after about 2 weeks.

Before switching to Pure, I was a big NDMC fan (had always been a cord fan).  While I liked the grips, they didn't like me.  Every time I put them on, with as many balls as I hit I would find my hands getting stiff/cramped (yeah not as young as I used to be) afterwards or in the middle of the night.  Absolutely zero problems since switching.

I use the Golf Pride New Decade Multi-Compound grips as well and I love them. My standards were taped up to oversized and fitted for me (they only had Standard in yellow/black when I went to GG). My grip is lighter than ever and I have much more control over the club, especially in hot, humid and/or wet weather. At least in combination with my FootJoy WeatherSof glove, that is.

What style are you looking for? Half Cord like the NDMC? No Cord, full cord, wrap?

I play Black Widow grips on my clubs. I have the Widow Makers (half cord) on my woods, and the Torque (full cord) on my irons. I love the Torque grips, great feel, great grip, and so far very durable. If your looking for Corded grips, I'd definitely recommend the Black Widows.

If your after a more standard style or wrap style, I'd recommend looking into Pure Grips. I've played them in the past, and loved them in the cooler months. However, in the heat of the summer, I did struggle a little with the clubs slipping in my sweaty hands.

PURE Grips!  I play the Pros.  Doesn't mater if it's way hot or way cold, raining or dry, these grips are awesome.  I'm on my second year and have seen no wear at all.  FWIW, I play once a week and practice 2-3 times a week between the range and my home practice area.

I'm not a fan of tacky (i.e puregrip), I regrip myself, and having a large golf store near allowed me to try many different grips. I prefer the velvety feel of lamkins or the GP's overall. I used the black leatherwrap looking GP's for driver and woods, oversized lamkins for irons, and corded multi compound GP's in my wedges (red, white and blue). Lamkins have oversized versions which make it easy to install, I have to build up tape for most other brands... If your up to it, do it yourself and try various brands, have fun with it.

If you're replacing a full set of grips (10-13 grips) price could be an issue.  Check out golfsmith.com to give you an idea of $.  NDMCs are over $9 while Pures are $6.49.  Personally I like Lampkin Perma Wrap ($3.79) because the skin on my hands can't take any type of cord.  But if you want a real bargain right now Golf Smith is selling Black Widow Tour Silks in white for only $.99.  Some kind of manufacturing overrun.  I guess Winn can't put quality into their product because they have such high advertising costs.  Of course supporting Natalie Gulbis isn't all bad.

The Lamkin Crossline is a really long-lasting grip that maintains its feel over time.  Affordable too, at about $4/grip.

    • do we really need fancy putters
      I guess this is where the old saying "never sell or give away a putter" comes from. If what you're using goes sour, you'll have something in your closet that will work!
    • What do you HATE the most about golf?
      Of course we don't hate golf overall, only on certain days. When you have a bad day, what do you hate most about golf? For me it's probably when starting the round off well, thinking "this is going to be a great round", only to hit a few shanks in a row and ruin everything. You get your hopes up, and then your hopes get crushed. So I guess how hard it is to get consistency in my shots. That's really what I hate about golf.
    • The Biggest Secret? SLIDE Your Hips
      I see this is an "oldie but goodie", and I certainly didn't want to wade through 46 pages of content. But just from reading the title of the thread, and this last page, I second that emotion. You have to slide your hips before you turn them! But, how much? I used to do a drill I called the "door jamb" drill. You would set up in an empty door jamb with the outside of your left foot, for a right hander, up against the jamb. You would mimic a swing, and, on the down swing, let your hips "slide" until your left hip hit the jamb. Only then would you start to turn your hips. This puts your left hip directly above your left foot. Thinking back, I used to play a lot of golf with a friend who moved West many years ago. Big guy, 6'4" and 220, but basically an arms and upper body swinger. He could still hit the ball long, but once in a while, by accident, he'd get his lower body involved and then he would crush it like Daly! Every time he did that I'd tease him by saying, "Yeah! You really got your big, fat, left ass cheek into that one, dintcha?!"
    • Reading Greens
      Speaking of stopping half way, I got some of my best reads today by walking halfway between the ball and hole and just taking a look. I was playing in an informal 2 man scramble with some buds for the grand prize of beers and dogs! On the very first hole, an easy par 5, we're putting for eagle. I putt first, and 3 feet from the hole we think the ball is in. A foot from the hole it breaks right and I graze the edge. I mark, and stand aside while my buddy putts. I'm about halfway and from there I can clearly see the subtle little mound in the green that the cup was cut in. You could not see it from behind the ball. Believe me, we checked! I've long been a proponent of letting my feet inform my brain, but if your eyes can't see everything then your feet can't feel everything. They have to work together to get the best read.
    • A Forum Just for Golfing?
      I'm not sure how this applies to my response?  I said if there were something free I'd use it vs build it and, if I wanted to build something just for the heck of it, I would expect that to be free or almost free as well.  This is true, is it not?  I don't consult on how to build internet forums . . . why would I know anything about what free forum software comes with hosting servers?  I assume there is some.
