Looking for new grips

12 posts in this topic

I have been in the market for new grips but don't know what I'm looking for.

I would like something that doesn't slip out of my hands too much cuz I tend to sweat a lot.  I am currently testing out a WINN dry and Lamkin crossline and was told the Lamkin would be better, but in fact the WINN seems to stick better.

Any Suggestions ?

Try out the Pure grips.  I bought my first Pure grips on this site when Erik (site owner) worked out a deal with Pure for us to purchase them with the 5SK logo on them.

The grips are installed with an air compressor, (no tape, no solution, etc) and they are by far the best grips I've ever used.  My hands sweat a lot in the summer (usually rotate 4 gloves a round) and I've never had my hands slip using the Pure grips.

The 5SK grips were Pure Pro's but I've since purchased the Pure DTX which compare to corded grips and I like them even better.  They are cheaper than most competitor grips and if you own an air compressor you'll save even more money installing them yourself.

On my clubs I use a golf pride black/white multi compound. I have played with them in the rain and the club doesn't even slip! It's all to your personal preference.

I've been using the Winn - Dry-tecs OS 1/8", you need to get grip-fitted for any grip and it would be by the guy that installs them, I had slippage because I was playing a standard size grip.... They wear pretty good, 60 - 70 rounds for me on wedges and irons, but my driver death grip causes the driver grip to last only maybe 50 rounds.That also includes range work about once a week hitting 90 balls. Every golfer that touches them either Ewws or Awes them. There is a cheaper one by Lamkin or golf pride that is close to these, but I have not tried them yet....

I don't like to switch grips - I use Lamkin because typically they last a long time - when it's hot and I sweat, my first move is a "guerrilla towel." It's a towel with super tackiness that you rub on your grip and/or hands. My second move is a double wrist band I picked up on Amazon - use it on the left wrist, and I also use a glove.

I only use a glove when I must - generally, I go bare handed, as I did today, when a cool front left the temps in the low 90's. I used a little bit of the guerrilla towel.

With the Lamkin, I use the REL 3GEN, and use the Performance Plus Wedge Grips on the Wedges - I like the Wedge Grips, so the Performance Plus would also be on the "must try" list.

I use pure pros, which I love. Also just acquired and reviewed the GP Niions ... And those are winners as well.

Another recommendation for the PURE Pro.  I sweat like crazy and never have an issue with them.  Also might want to check out the PURE P2 Wrap (if you like wrap style) because I installed those on some friends clubs and they just seemed incredibly tacky.  I have been debating trying out the PURE DTX

Can't go wrong with the PURES... And btw, Winn grips suck more than Michael Jackson at a Boy Scouts convention...

I like the Pure DTX even better than the Pro's but they are rough on leather golf gloves, even more so than corded grips.

    • 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...
    • Your best golfing bargain
      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.
