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.

    • New GolfNow layout is Awful
      Interestingly, I received this in an email from GolfNow yesterday.... You spoke and we're listening. That's why we're already hard at work fine-tuning the new GolfNow.com based on your feedback. Keep an eye out for enhancements on the way! I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't well aware of forum threads like this one too.
    • New GolfNow layout is Awful
      Every customer is different, some know exactly what they want and expect you to execute their vision.  Others want more consultation and input from the designers as to what others are doing or what trends are on the rise.  Another factor is maintenance, how much time is required to keep the site updated, can the business maintain the site on their own or must that be outsourced, etc. There are numerous reasons why a business would redesign their site, such as; The business has undergone some fundamental changes that they want reflected in a new website The cost of maintaining the current site is too high The provider of their data has changed the feeds or discontinued certain elements of the data. Users have complained about how the site works The site is outdated or dependent on outdated technology or servers. They want a site that is "responsive" meaning the same site works on desktop, tablet and smart phones. I've never done work for a business that said they want to make their site worse, less user friendly, less functional or more frustrating for their customers to use.  My guess is that given the popularity of sites like GolfNow, that some standards were created for how the data would be distributed and updated to the GolfNow like websites from the different courses to make it easier for them all to get the data (the same thing happened to the airline industry).  The change to the backend likely warranted the changing of the front end as well. In some cases compromises must be made.  I've redesigned sites that were written in HTML, PHP and jQuery which are not easy for end users to maintain and update themselves.  The client wanted a responsive site that they could maintain easily on their own.  I suggested we develop the new site using Joomla, Drupel or WordPress as those platforms provided them with everything they requested.  They ultimately ended up with a WordPress site that was responsive and very functional but because of the platform certain nuances of the old site were lost. Users initially complained but we worked out some issues and over time they appreciated the more frequent updates and ability to easily view the site on their iPads and cell phones.  Website redesign like life is full of compromises.
    • Shorts On the PGA Tour (Updated 2013, 2016)
      I don't think the PGA Tour's stance on this has only to do with "tradition." Ultimately the PGA Tour is a member-run organization. If they strongly wished for shorts, they'd vote to allow it. That they've not done so speaks volumes, IMO.
    • Donald Trump for president?
      I heard something on the radio along the lines of New Hampshire having "super delegates" that will vote for Clinton regardless of yesterday's vote.  As far as Trump goes, my bottom line  is that he simply is not electable. Moderates, women and minorities aren't going to vote for that guy.    
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Just to clarify, I consider myself a committed Trump supporter, I like him. I am not a conservative in the traditional sense. Like anyone, I don't agree with every position that my candidate stands for, I do, however, agree on his main points re: immigration.
