What grips are good for drivers?

11 posts in this topic

I just got a taylormade superfast 2.0 and want to get a new grip on it. I've been looking at the Winn dri tac grip but am trying to get more suggestions before buying one. Anyone have any opinions?

Any grip with cord in it. When the weather is wet, the last thing you need is slippage with the longest club in the bag. One of my driver grips is a "Feel" grip, which has a reverse taper. It is about as secure as you can get.

Even though I am currently a hypocrite on this advice, I would recommend having the same grips for all of your clubs.  (Except possibly your putter) :)

Winn possibly makes the worst grips in my opinion.. Way to soft and slippery when wet.. I like to play a lampkin cross line on my irons, multi compounds on wedges and driver.

Short answer....whichever grip you prefer on the rest of your clubs.  There's absolutely no need to have a different grip on your driver, than any other club, with, as Golfingdad mentioned, the common exception of your putter.

I switched to the grip that you're looking at and I like the feel a lot.  I don't expect that this is a long-lasting grip, though, although I can have a looser grip with the Dri Tac than I could with my prior grip maybe I'll be proven wrong.

I also have the Dri Tac grip on my Driver, but use a Lampkin style grip on my irons.

The driver swing is much more demanding so I like the Winn grip as it is somewhat softer.  I know the Winn grips will breakdown quicker.  I play a couple rounds per week all year round so plan on changing grips about twice a year.

I would agree with the other posters, as i have a superfast2.0 and have had the Winn grips on it....Garbage, last about a month before my right hand thumb wears right through the grip. Just regriped with the new lamkin crossline ace. Love it, midsize 3 wraps low hand and 2 full wraps over that. If you have ever used gorilla gold takafier towels, that's how these ace grips feel. Overall find what you like...just not Winn.

Personally, I prefer the same grip on all my clubs. Don't believe I've ever had a corded grip and neither problems with slipping in the rain. Even without a glove. It all comes down to your personal preference.

    • What'd You Shoot Today?
      76 today 36 on the front 40 on the back I started off hitting the ball better than I ever had. I didn't miss a fairway until somewhere on the back 9 and the only thing that kept me from going low was not being able to convert on key birdie opportunities. Had a real good look at shooting under par but I let my swing get a little quick on the final holes as I played the closing three at +4. Despite a couple errant tee shots and a 4 -putt (yes, a 4-putt...), this was a pretty clean round for me. I feel good going into a 4 day break.  
    • The Tiger Woods/PED Thread
      Tiger never got "so big." Have you seen the dude in person? He was not an imposing figure. This is a myth. I get that he can look pretty stacked on TV, but he's not: his shirts were tight, and he was fit, but he wasn't "so big." Like most men, he filled out from the time he was 20 until he was 26, 27…
    • The Tiger Woods/PED Thread
      Wrong again! I loved Tiger when he was out there dominating the game. He was great for golf, bringing new fans and attention to the sport. I attended the WGC Bridgestone in Akron when Tiger was in his ascendancy. I tried to follow him, but it was impossible! He had to be dragging 10,000 people around the course! But I, like many others, began to wonder when Tiger got so big. Remember when he first came on tour? A skinny string bean with big, thick glasses. When he showed up at Stanford it was his teammate, Notah Begay, who tagged him with the nickname "Urkel"! Even though Woods and Begay became friends, I don't think Tiger liked "Urkel" very much. And it's been reported that Tiger didn't like the idea of golfers not being considered "real" athletes either. So, if Tiger was juicing he never got caught. Neither did Bonds, Sosa or McGwire. There is no proof, but suspicions remain. It's kind of sad to see Tiger in his current state, trying to claw his way back to the tour. No doubt he has enough money to last the rest of his and his kid's lives, but you don't get to where he was unless you are competitive. I think that might be what Tiger misses the most. I just remembered that he named his yacht "Privacy" because, at the time, that is what he craved. Well, he has plenty of it now. Wonder how that's sitting with him?

      The story about the infamous crime lord Whitey Bulger. It starred Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger. Benedict Cumberbatch played his brother, and US Senator Billy Bulger. This was an enthralling movie to watch. I give it a tap in Birdie. I give Johnny Depp an birdie performance. He was totally convincing playing Whitey Bulger.  Kung Fury
      This is a little gem I found when I was hanging out with my friends just skimming through Netflix. This is a movie that was crowd funded through kickstarter. It has that cheesy 80's action movie coupled with cheesy kung-fu movie feel to it. It just works brilliantly to give you an over the top 30 minutes of enjoyment. I give it an birdie for outstanding exaggerated fun and enjoyment.

      Watching Steph make clutch 3s from mid court routinely must be like watching Spieth putt those 15-20 footers knowly there always a chance goes in no matter how tough the green is
