Pros: Long lasting, great tack for excellent grip, easy to clean, firm feel

Cons: Pricey as compared to others

I put these on my irons and woods more than a year ago.  I have played 50 - 60 round with them and numerous practice sessions.  They are by far my favorite grip.  And they are still going strong.

 

The grip has two sections, top cord style and bottom rubber compound. This gives you a secure grip at the top and a softer feel at the bottom.  It is a firm grip due to the chord, so it gives you lots of feedback.  If you have softer hands or arthritis, it may not be for you.

 

As for performance, it is terrific in all types of conditions.  I have sweaty hands in the humid summer months, and these perform well.  I generally do not wear gloves except when it is really hot.  With gloves, the grip is excellent.  I even use rain gloves for the 90 degree humid days and the grip works well.  In the rain, the rubber section can get a little slippery without gloves, but work well with rain gloves.

 

As for wear, they last much longer than Tour Velvet.  I clean my grips with rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) that you can get at the drug or grocery store.  This removes all hand oils and bring the tack on the grip back to almost new feel.

 

For value, the fact that they last more that two times longer alleviates the price difference.  They come in a variety of colors to match your taste.

 

I highly recommend these to anyone who likes a firm grip.

Arnold Palmer cleaned his leather grips with gasoline and it really did remove oils but i'm not so sure about alcohol doing likewise with rubber.  Hot water and soap will take the oils and salts out of the grip too.
