I've been looking to re-grip my irons and was searching for reviews on the new Winn DriTac grips. Since they're so new, I haven't seen any. So I decided to write my own review...
I bought one of each of the Winn DriTac and Winn DriTac Wrap Lite. I re-gripped my 6 and 7 irons and have taken them out to the range to try them out. This is what I found...
DriTac - The first time out was a dry day and I really liked these grips. After the first day, I was pretty much set on them. However, a week later on a drizzly day, I changed my mind pretty quickly. I really felt like they were going to slip out of my hands on every swing.
DriTac Wrap Lite - As with the other DriTac grip I tried out, the first time out was dry. I did like the feel of the wrap grip other than they way the butt end rested too shallow under my palm. Because of the wrap, you need to choke up or down based on where the wrap set in your hand (fingers). For me unfortunately, it didn't match up with where I like to have the butt end of the grip set against my palm. I guess I could rotate the grip when I put it on the club to where I like the wraps to set... so it's not really a knock on the grip itself, just a preference thing. I will say that getting a little dirt on the grip affected the tac. You'd definitely have to keep them wiped down during a round. On the second day out when it was drizzly, this grip did have a little more tac the non-wrap. It was decent but not great.
Durability - Since I've just been trying these out while knocking the rust off at the range before the season starts, I can't comment on durability. I have read that the predecessor's (Excel) were excellent grips in dry weather but were horrible in wet weather and didn't last long. Not sure if the new DriTac wraps are supposed to be the answer to that. I'll we'll find out in a couple months.
Decision - I don't think I'll go for either of these in the long run. I currently have GolfPride Tour Velvet grips on my irons and will probably stick with them for now. I live in NY, so playing in drizzly weather is not uncommon. I'll just have to keep searching for the best fit.
I hope this helps give some insight to anyone looking at these grips. In a nutshell, if you only play on dry days... I think the Dri-Tac grips are great, but beware if you often play in wet weather.
