I tried 14 different grips (GP, Lamkin, Winn) in a sporting goods store.  The one I liked best was the Lamkin Crossline Tour.  I replaced my GP Tour Velvets with the Navy Blue Crossline Tours.  Couldn't be happier.  In relation to the GP Tour Velvets, they offer more grip, seem to be more durable (jury still out on this one), offer slightly more feedback and generally feel fantastic in my hands.  For me the are the best combination of grip, feel, looks and affordability !

I am a big fan of the Golf Pride New Decade.  I don't like wearing a glove, so I like the cord in the New Decade.  Additional we get a lot of humidity here in the midwest, so I like the roughness of the New Decade.  For your climate these may not be a factor.

I like tacky grips that don't have too much taper.  I like the taper and tacky feel of the Winn Excel but they discontinued the firm version and the soft ones are too mushy.  I have a Golf Pride Tour Wrap 2G with 4 wraps of tape under the lower half of the grip to straighten out the taper, I like that OK.  But the one I'm going to go with this year on the irons is the Lamkin Performance Plus 3GEN midsize.  It's got the surface texture like a Tour Velvet except more tacky and it's got a fairly straight taper, unfortunately it's pricey.

13 * $8 (new decade multi-comps): $104....... every time you regrip.

 

They begin to cost less (and they last a lot longer) very quickly. And you can install a full set yourself in 20 minutes.

And it isn't $100 for the gun.    They sell a kit of 13 grips plus the gun for $90.    If you bought the grips alone it is $97, so the gun is free with a little discount on the grips.    Even if you compare the Pure to another company's grip at $5, this would mean you get the gun for $25 which too me seems well worth it in that you can do a whole set in minutes and have the gun to use again and again.

You can put nearly any grip on with air pressure.  If you've already got the compressor and a nozzle than there's a good chance you already have a tip that will work.  The fitting on the end of the Pure nozzle that holds the grip butt steady looks handy.  I'm thinking maybe drill a hole in the middle of a large bottle cap and screw the tip through that, I'm looking at a bottle of clorox that looks about the right size... Hey something else fun I can try now that we have 5" of new snow.

While true:

 

  1. Not all grips are necessarily as "sticky" due to lower rubber composition and thus might rotate on the shaft more easily.
  2. Not all grips will "stretch" quite as easily - some might "bubble out" in places or fail to stretch, making putting them on more difficult.

 

Now, probably 80% of the time neither's really a problem, but I don't know that I'd trust non-rubbery grips to not spin (#1) during a shot.

I have been using Tour Wraps in the .580 size for almost 20 years. I don't wear a glove so I take the wet end of my towel and wipe the grip and then dry it with the other end before every shot to keep them tacky. Works like a charm. Every 6-8 rounds I wash them with hot soapy water and a scrub brush.
