Lamkin R.E.L. 3GEN Grip Review

Posted

Pros: Simple in looks, great feel, constant control

Cons: none

The first thing I did once I found out that I would be getting these Lamkin Grips to try out was to go to the Lamkin website.  I found that they have a very useful tool for determining grip size.  I have been experimenting for the past few months with grips between standard and mid-size.  I was in the process of getting ready to build up standard grips as the midsize grips I was trying were a tad too bulky for me  Lo and behold the sizing tool told me to with standard w/two wraps.    After installing the grips with two wraps, I headed to the range.  The clubs I used for this experiment as one of my sets of Mizunos (MP-32 as they have the most...

Lamkin 3Gen Ace wrap

Posted

Pros: Tackiness, the right level of softness, PRICE

Cons: red cap? potential wear?

I had been struggling finding a new grip for my driver. The new decades worked well but seemed to wear quickly. They also were a bit too hard. I then made the mistake of trying the Boccerri Secret Grip. I hear it works for some people but for me it took all the feeling out of the club. I think they also cost me distance. I even tried removing the weight from the rear of the grip. Totally not for me. Tried a oversized Lamkin 3Gen Crossline. Still not for me... especially the oversized part. Finally I found the Lamkin 3Gen Ace Wrap. Absolutely the right feel for me. The part I like most is the way the pointer finger on my right hand fits into the groove of the wrap. Between the softness...

Great blend of soft, tacky, and stable

Posted

Pros: Great feel; tacky; will work in damp conditions

Cons: Dirty endcaps

The Lamkin REL 3GEN is a great, medium firm grip that works well in wet conditions, with or without a glove. It incorporates the best aspects of the supersoft/tacky grip technologies without feeling squishy.   I bought the REL 3GENs based mostly on reviews from this forum.  After playing with them for 2 months, I have to emphatically agree with the positive reviews here.  Simply stated, this is the best grip I've ever owned.   I think the best way to describe these grips is to lay out what I've disliked about grips I've played in the past. --Lamkin Crossline: A solid, stable, firm-feeling grip, but lots of slippage in wet conditions. --Golf Pride tour...

Lamkin's R.E.L. 3GEN grips are solid

Posted

Pros: Looks, Feel, Tackiness

Cons: Almost too tacky!? Hard to believe I'm saying that!!!

I'm writing about Lamkin's 2012, R.E.L. 3GEN golf grips.  These are the latest golf grips from Lamkin which feature a synthetic rubber compound, and have a minimalist look and feel.  The timing of receiving these grips was perfect, as I was in the market for replacing the Winn Dri-Tac's that I've used since last Fall 2011.   Specifications that adhere to a Winning Formula   First lets start with the specification of the R.E.L. 3GEN grip.  The standard grip size is .600" round, and 52g in weight.  In comparison to the Winn Dri-Tac's standard 5DT-DG is also a .600" round, but weighs in at 48g.  So the Lamkin's are a tad heavier.   ...

Lamkin R.E.L. 3GEN Grips

Posted

Pros: Tacky, soft but firm, shock absorbing

Cons: none

Looks   This is a good looking grip. Comes in lots of colors but I'm more or a traditionalist so I just have the basic black. The pattern is quite different from the flagship Crossline grip that I've played off and on for years. Interestingly the pattern is not nearly as deep on the 3Gen as it is on the Crossline       Feel   This grip feels amazing. Soft but firm and very tacky. When I put the grips on (I blow my grips on with an air compressor) I had a little trouble getting them started because the grip is so tacky. On the course the grip stays firmly in place with minimum grip pressure.  An added benefit is the grip's shock absorbing...

Review Lamkin R.E.L 3GEN Grips

Posted

Pros: Great feel, Great price, Great looks

Cons: None

    Looks   These things are beautiful! They look great with the White ferule on most of my clubs, it makes me want to do a re-shaft just so I can put white ferrules on the woods to complete the set.  The colors are bright and deep. The quality and care put into these grips jumps out just from looking at them.   Check Pattern   The pattern is new, and in my opinion improves the feel over the classic crossline. The new pattern feels great, provides the increased surface area for grip, and is less mentally intrusive than the crossline pattern.   Compound   I just have to say wow! Whatever they put in the new compound to make...
