Longest lasting grips

Re: Longest lasting gripsWhen getting grips, don't just get the longest lasting. If you play in the rain from time to time, you want grips that don't lose grip when wet. Feel is important as well, some grips are too soft or too hard. Go to a shop and check them out. Can't really go wrong with GolfPride Tour Velvets.

Golf grips with a one-year guarantee and no tape or solvent required? Sound like hocum? It's not.
Suffice to say I think PURE is safe in guaranteeing their year-long playability. With my normal grips (Lamkin Crosslines or Golf Pride New Decade Multicompounds), a single heavy practice session could show appreciable wear on my grips. I saw none with the PURE Pro. I've worked with a student who has the PURE Smooth Wraps installed. He hit about 300 golf balls per day in all sorts of weather for two months and his grips look virtually new.
Re: Longest lasting gripsTry the Golf pride Tour Wrap 2G...............I have slight arthritis with my Cadet medium fingers so i switched from the standard GP new Decade to the Midsize Tour Wrap 2G.....they are just slightly larger so I don't have to squeeze as hard and they also absorb more ground shock.
They are 1/2 price as compared to the GP new Decades.
Re: Longest lasting grips
As for durability and long lasting goes, I don't think anyone can argue that full corded grips WILL last the longest...but they are also harsh on your hands.
Grips such as the tour wrap 2G's, while nice and tacky, one season of using those and they'll probably shred apart. I have a friend who switched all his grips over to the 2G's and he loves them but when his hands start to sweat, they can get a bit slipper, thus having to towell off his grips after each shot.
for now, I'm sticking with the NDMC's. I've found that even when my hands get sweaty, they still provide the grip I need, better so than tour velvets.
I tend to disagree with the lamkin grips. I just regripped three of my clubs with the standard model and after a week the tackiness is gone in all three grips. Keep having to wipe them down with the grip cleaner to bring back some of the tackiness back. I thought the first one was defective but it happened to each of the ones that were regripped.
I have almost 2 years, about 150 rounds of golf plus another 75 or so range trips on my Lamkin Crosslines. They are just now beginning to show any wear on them. I've played in rain, and temps ranging from 100* down to the mid-30's. I haven't had any problem keeping a good grip on the club under any of those conditions. I like the looks of the NDMC's but am not sure whether it would be wise to mess with what I know works.....
LongEST? I don't know. Long? My Iomic Sticky 2.3's are 2.5 seasons old and look and feel new. Over 100 rounds and many many sessions on the range. I don't wear a glove and would notice any changes in feel. So far, none. If you buy Iomic Sticky 2.3's, pick your color carefully because you'll have them for a long time. :)
The original Tour Wraps from Golf Pride were fantastic. I heard that the formula had changed because they were too durable and you could easily get 2 years out of them. I switched to the 2Gs and noticed that they wore so much quicker. Since then I went to the Lamkin REL 3Gen after they sent me a set to review. After 25 rounds they had minimal wear. I switched to the Golf Pride New Decade for another review and quickly went back to the 3Gens. I found the 3Gen to be the best blend of performance, playability, and affordability.
