What are all of your favorite grips for irons and woods?

54 posts in this topic

I am pretty indecisive about grips but currently use golf pride tour wrap on my irons, golf pride multi compounds on my woods, and tour velvet on my wedges. WHAT ABOUT YOU!?

Same on all clubs ... "Pure Pros" right now. Love em! Also have a set of golf pride niions that I reviewed for the site that I really liked. (But they were orange so I swapped the pures back on for now)

I loved em. Orange wasn't really my thing ... But the grips themselves are great. A lot like my pures in fact. Basically just rubber (no cord) and tacky. If you're on the desktop version of the site click on the hyperlink number next to "reviews" under my name and I think you'll find it.

Not sure about white grips but the Red VDR's I use stand up well. They lose very little of the original shade. I still have the same grip on my 5 iron from the start of last season. It looks just as lively as the other irons and woods I had re gripped earlier this season.

I use Lamking REL 3 GEN White on a set of irons, and Lamkn Performance Plus Wedge Grip on the ... uhm,  Wedges. I may use the Performance Plus on the irons and woods next time as it is less tapered. yes sir

The Lamkins have lasted 2 years in my irons and I use them frequently. I also clean them once per week. At the same time, I'm always looking for grips that hold in hot, humid conditions without a glove. When it gets in the high 80's, the glove comes on.

Agreed.  Best grips out there; wouldn't think about putting anything else on my clubs (and I've tried them all).

As for your question on the white grips, I just took a set of the PURE Pro's in white off my clubs.  Not because they were worn our or even looking bad; I just wanted a different color.  Still looked like new after a lot of rounds and a hell of a lot of range balls.  Every set of PURE grips I've taken off is because I wanted a color change-not because they were worn out.

I really liked the blue WinnLites I put on this season but they wear out a little too quickly so I'll be looking at something else when I regrip this winter.

Golf Pride New Decade Multi-Compounds - Driver, woods, hybrids

Golf Pride Tour Velvets - irons, wedges  (I might put the Multi-comps on them this winter)

Winn Jumbo Lite Pistol - putter (but the Super Stroke 3.0 felt REALLY good when trying them out) - I'm wondering also if the regular Jumbo would have been better at twice the weight.  We'll see..

I don't really have a strategy.  Wouldn't know where to start but would like to.  I'm finding that I like the feel of what I have though.

Golf Pride Tour Velvet *midsize* on everything. I'm even thinking of getting on on my putter (I grew up with round grips on the putter).

Even though I wear a ML cadet glove (shorter than average fingers), I find I get a better grip with the midsize grips.

I've read a few comments/articles over the last few months (*after* I got my grips) that many people play grips that are too small for them.

    • New GolfNow layout is Awful
      Sounds like we just have a different barometer for what "bad" is. This particular case isn't about "adapting" to the new site, the controls are largely the same. The problem is they blew everything up so people can see it on their phones which dilutes the quantity of information you get get to see on your PC. Also they removed useful features like the regions to again make more space for mobile users.
    • My ex-home courses closing, changing - proofs that golf is in decline
      Yes, it is extremely popular among Asians of every kind here because it's a rich man's sport in Asia. Many Asians (Korean, Japanese, and large growing Chinese/Taiwanese and many other Southeast Asians) come here and find that Golf is within reach of their "class" so they sign up their kids to play. I'd say that my wife's friend is in that category, and she also convinced us to play as well. So, here I am.
    • Putting Yips
      I completely changed my own putting stroke this year.... twice. Last year I had a terrible case of the yips and was two and three putting a lot of greens - some of the two putts were on putts that were 3-4 footers resulting from chip ons. I averaged 37.8 putts per round. My back hurts when I bend over practicing putting for any length of time. I tried to fix it, but gave up after a while, decided that I needed to hit more GIRs and get closer to the pin. My putting would always be mediocre. So at Xmas I bought a long putter .... cheap $60... no one wants them anymore. I tried side-saddle and practiced in my living room. I took it to the green yesterday and I didn't like it. I changed to the "shoulder-connected method" except with my right arm fully extended and right index finger along the shaft of the putter. I hold the putter gripped over the top like they would when anchoring it to the chest. Now I just rock my shoulders and arm as a unit. Having the right arm fully extended takes my right wrist completely out of the equation and that is what was causing my putting problem. Now, neither my forearm nor the putter head is touching my body. I am making a legal stroke at the ball.  After about 15 minutes work, I was lag putting to within gimme range of the holes on the practice green. When I'd miss the mark, the four footer would still drop. Now this is with a completely new stroke, and not an anchored stroke either. I'm standing fairly upright too so it's easy on my back and I can practice for about 30 minutes every time I go to the range without dreading it. While this might not cure my scoring woes this year, if I look at last years Game Golf analysis, I could save about 3 strokes a round by going from 37.8 putts per round to 34.8.

      Facebook updates all the time for performance reasons. Read their release notes.  But never judge good usability by Facebook as they are one of the absolute worst sites out there.   Honestly?  There isn't.  Some people are still stuck in old web menus but usability has only risen in the last decade.  Are there bad sites?  Sure.  But most sites are far and away better they anytime in the past.  You just have to adapt to them.  This isn't a knock on you its how society works.  I am a user experience designer and study this a lot.   Once a person gets used to changes, going back to the old version would be impossible     
    • "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge (February 2016)
      Got to the range to drop off clubs for my daughters high school coed golf team tryouts. I sure hope she can get on the team. She's about a 15HC from the men's tees, it's going to be tough. Cross fingers and Practiced my downswing transition on grass and hit much better shots on the grass range after the first few shots. I hit too thin on the course, but was able to get some serious height on the grass range. Going to practice some more on the grass range and use golf club delivery to my daughter as an excuse to spend the extra money. Also, I feel like I can really go after the ball on grass because a fat shot is not as penal on the body as on a mat.
