I am interested in buying some new grips for my driver and irons. Which is the best to use?

Re: Best Grips

I like Golf Pride tour velvet the best. Also see if you like the decade multi compound ones. I dont..but some people swear by it.

Winn Grips...I put them on my irons and i love them. They are really soft but grip really nice. The best way i can describe them is like a rubbery firm foam...

I'm one of the folks that swear by them now. I did develop a callous on the inside of my fingers from using the grip though. It definately feels a little different.

I'm not a big fan if Winn grips. When I've used them in the past, they've always seemed to wear out and get slick pretty quickly. Then again, I don't change my grips the "recommended" once a year.

Re: Best Grips

You really can't go wrong with the Golf Pride Multicompound. I use the midsize ones as I have large hands.

You will not be disapointed.

I'd prefer any type of golf pride grips.

Re: Best Grips

I have been using Winn grips for a couple seasons and have not noticed the wear issues that some people complain about. (this may have been an issue previously?)

Currently, I have the PCI (half cord) grips and like them a thousand times better than the old Golf Pride cord I used to use. The appeal for me is that they seem softer and tackier which helps me ease off my grip pressure.

Re: Best Grips

For me it's Lamkin or Golfpride full cords...regular size with two layers of tape underneath. Been using these for a long while and never really desired to change.

They hold up wonderfully to sweaty palms and high humidity golf.

There are a ton of choices out there....many will please you in some way or another.....one or two will feel "just right".

I was in Dick's Sporting goods yesterday....they had a fairly decent selection of grips that were on shafts for you to evaluate....probably 30 different types. It could take and hour or better to find the "right" one.

Re: Best Grips

Go to your local golf store/pro shop and see what they keep in stock and give them a feel for yourself. If you don't already have a favorite, best thing to do is to try some out and find what you like.

If you play a bunch, keep the price in mind so if you want to change them next year you are not out too much money. Of course money might not be an issue. If you are only a casual player, get whatever you want because you probably won't change them again for a few years. That being said, a lot of the knock-off brands (Kelmac, Avon, Sharpro, etc.) are about half the price and are quality products, but they typically won't last as long.

I play with Golf Pride Tour Velvet and will change them every year. I wish I could play the Lamkin Dual Density Torsion Control but they cost way too much for me.

Re: Best Grips

I went to Dicks today and did what everyone suggested. It took about an hour to find which one was the best. I decided on the Winn Excel AVS. I had the Velvet style grip on there, and it turned very hard. I have only owned the club for a year. I haven't gotten the chance to take it out and play yet. Hopefully Sunday. Thanks everyone for your input. It definately helped in my decision.

Re: Best Grips

I just got the Lamkin Dual density torsion control on all my clubs from driver to wedges and they are fantastic, nice and soft and tacky

Re: Best Grips

I'm sold on the new line of Winn grips. i have PCI's on all my irons (not wedges though). I've put them on my main driver and 3 metal. I have DSI's on some of my FW woods, and I also have the Xi7's on a couple other clubs.

The PCI's are a little harder, the other 2--def. soft.

I've kept the oem tour velvets on me Cleveland wedges, they're great.

And I've heard great things about the DD2 GP's, but haven't tried them yet.

I do have on Lamkin crossline sting free (the free one we were all getting months back). . .AWESOME grip. When I re-grip the next time around, I'll probably use these.

Re: Best Grips

I said Golf Pride before but now I've seen the G8 Raves from Winn. I don't know exactly how they feel, but they look sick.

Re: Best Grips

A quick vote for the Golf Pride New Decade Multi-Compund grips. It's a great concept that blends a cord grip on the upper and a nice comfy rubber grip lower. I really like them. They're not cheap though..
