Pros: Tacky, soft but firm, shock absorbing
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
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 ability - definitely takes the sting out of those occasional mishits.
I've got three rounds and a range session on these grips and so far there is no signs of wear. The grips clean up easily with a little soap and water and should easily last a season or two with an occasional cleaning.
This is a great grip at a very reasonable price. If you like a grip with a bit of give and a tacky feel this is the grip for you.
A small confession - For the last couple of years I've played a variety of "bargain" grips and rarely pay more than a couple of bucks per grip (yes, I'm "frugal" aka cheap!). Well, the old saying "you get what you pay for" is certainly true when it comes to grips. At $6 a grip the 3GEN is an outstanding value that even this cheapskate will gladly pay extra for. I really had no idea what I was missing playing the low cost grips but Lamkin has opened my eyes. You definitely get what you pay for and this grip is a bargain at $6.
