Best Grips?

16 posts in this topic

Looking to get all my clubs apart from putter re-gripped. Any preferences? Best bang for your buck? I currently just have stock grips and they are starting to wear. I know most use Golf Pride grips and there are also Winn Dri-Tac. Any preferences? They even make a difference?

You'll see many here like the PURE grips, including me. They are made without any unnecessary polymers that seem to make other grips wear out faster. I would stay away from Winn grips unless you like to regrip twice a year...

How long do PURE grips last?

Guaranteed for a year. Last much longer than that in my experience.

Pure pro grips are amazing. If you buy the kit you can even install them yourself. Its supper easy and they have a pretty big selection of colors.

Absolutely. Going on 2 years for me. I'm only changing mine because some of the current options weren't available the first time around...

Huh, and they aren't significantly more expensive than most other grips either. Probably even cheaper when we account for how long they last. How much for the proprietary installation tools? I'm thinking I might switch to them, especially after my recent mishap with applying a traditional grip (I probably won't make that particular mistake again).

$35 or so. Plus an air compressor. I'll never pay someone to install grips again. Or use tape and solvents.

I currently have pure pros on my driver and 60* and love them. I think golf pride ndmc are the best grips but destroy hands and gloves all in all, pure is the way to go

I need to check those PURE grips out I reckon.

I always use Lamkin Crosslines. Last ok and are very comfortable to me as I usually go gloveless.

Fresh grips are one of the greatest little pleasures in golf.

I had Dick's install the Golf Pride Niion Orange/White grips to my entire bag this past April - was gonna do it myself but they were running promo, 10+ clubs and free installation.  So I did it.  They did a good job and I am pleased with the grips.  I chose the bright orange/white simply because I wanted loud grips, lol.

I had the orange Niions on my club last season. Great grips in my opinion. I went with tour velvet 360 on all clubs this season. So far so good. My favorite grips were the red VDR grips.

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
