So Many New Golf Grips to Choose

5 posts in this topic

I am getting ready to regrip some of my clubs. I do my own regripping, (very therapeutic), and am looking for some input from the golfing community.

When I went out to the net to restock my general supply, I notice that there are so many new grips available that I started to wonder if it is time to change my favorite make and model. For the last 15 (or more) years, I have been playing the Lamkin Crossline grips and love them for their feel and durability. Recently, I played a Golf Pride® "New Decade Multicompound" grip. I found this grip to have a feel that rivaled my old faithful Crosslines.  Now, if these Golf Pride's have such a good feel, I just wonder if there are other new makes and models that might even be better.

Over the years I have purchased various putter grips and change them periodically. Generally, I find that there's a lot more variety in styles and colors. (EX: My wife wanted a pink putter grip, and even though the one she picked out did not feel as good as the one that was on her putter, she made me change it just for the color.) Golf Pride, Ping and Lamkin have been my preferences. I've never tried a jumbo putter grip, but might like to try one in the near future.

Finally, I don't know if it is me, but about 20 years ago I started putting midsize grips on my 54° sand wedge, 60° lob wedge, and driver. I have a large hand, and could probably put a midsize grip on all of my clubs, but I really prefer the standard size grips on my irons, hybrids, and fairway woods, basically for the feedback.  The reason for going to the midsize on my driver and wedges is for performance, so I don't get as "wristy" on those particular shots. To test my theory, I regripped a lob wedge for a friend and put on a midsize grip for him (a small to medium size hand), and he loved it.

So here are a few questions about grips that I hope some of you can answer...

1) What golf grip do you currently rate number one?

2) Rate these factors #1, #2, and #3 as why you play your current grip: feel (when you grip the club), feedback (on shots), and durability

3) Do you regrip a new putter, or do you use the grip that came with the club? If you regrip, which make/model is it?

4) Have you ever tried a jumbo putter grip? If so, what was the result? Did your putting improve, stay the same. or deteriorate?

5) Have you ever used different sized grips on some of your clubs, (driver, wedges, etc.), or for those of you who do regripping, have you ever added extra tape to the shaft to build up the grip? If not, would it be something that you would consider?

Thanks for any response :)

1) PURE Grips are the best IMO. 2) They're great at all three so I'm not ranking them. 3) I use a round grip on my putter. 4) No. 5) No. Same grip sizes.

1. I use Golf Pride New Decade Multi's. Little pricey but you get what you pay for. 2. Feel and durability. 3. Using the New Decade putter grip as well. 4. Never felt the need to try an oversized putter grip. 5. I like the idea of trying mid size grips on the wedges and may give it a try someday.

1. I prefer LAMKIN

2. Feel, Durability, Feedback

3. Regrip - Edel Round (Tacki Mack)

4. No - I put 2 wraps on the putter

5. No - 2 wraps on standard grip, and sometimes an extra wrap on lower hand on wedges.

1.  I used Lamkin Crossline for my last couple of regrips, but just switched to DriTac from Winn. I love the durability of the Crosslines but after using them for the last couple of years I felt that I could get a little better comfort and feel with a different grip.  I changed to the DriTac and have less hand fatigue from my arthritis and don't feel that I have to grip the club as tightly to have the same control.

2.  Feel, feedback, and durability (which I don't know about with the new grips yet).

3.  I haven't regripped my current putter.

4.  Haven't tried a jumbo putter grip.

5.  No extra tape, just a midsize grip which is better for my hands.

    • My Swing (PumaAttack)
      When you post a video showing your progress only to get ripped apart for other parts of your swing that are not a priority it makes you want to never post again.   I'm very disappointed in the behavior of a lot of the instructors on here.   lets review the timeline.  First I posted a video of me working on my shallowing swing.  I never stated it was perfect.  I get a response saying my backswing is wrong. I follow up asking why it matters if I hit other positions correctly. i get told "because" I follow up asking why it matters if my backswing is off if my downswing hits key checkpoints. I get told I am not hitting the spots.  I ask why not stating my angles are where my coach outlined them to be. I get shown my angles are wrong.  I counter stating they are still shallow and match that of pros.   I get told angles don't matter. (Even though I was wrong before because my angles were off.) This goes ignored and I get told my backswing is wrong. I detail my Evolvr coach doesn't have my backswing as a priority because he liked my positions at A4 and 5.  These get ignored.  I point out my friend has the same shallow to slightly steep and is told his swing is perfect and his Evolr coach says no changes are needed in his swing.  It's great as is.  I follow up why his shallow to steep is fine and mine isn't.  These comments get ignored.    Yet I am the one with the ego problem...

      I have one that I think maybe could top them all . . . I got a year membership with full golf privileges at a private club in exchange for an old sofa that I put on Craigslist and didn't even think would sell. I got an email - "Is the sofa still available - would you consider trade for golf membership" - totally out of the blue.    edit-  the guy had recently won it in a raffle of some sort.
