Recently had to get my old set re-gripped, my old winn grips were falling apart as the clubs sat in the bag for a really long time. I went with some Iomic grips, not really sure I'm a fan of them now though! Yesterday I got to play my first full round of 18 under this good ol Florida Sunshine and their were times where these grips actually felt slick!!! I was wiping down my hands every chance I got and wear a glove on my left hand but sometimes it wasn't enough!

I'm thinking about replacing them with Winn DriTac Grips or Winn DriTac Wraps! What are your favorite grips?

I haven't tried a lot of grips but, so far, I really like the Golf Pride CP2 grip with 3 wraps of tape. I get a good grip on the club and they seem to perform fairly well when wet, too.

I have these on my new clubs and although I like them wish i had something else.   They are comfortable but when I played in the rain all weekend last month they were as slick as snot.   I won't replace them until they are worn out but I definitely will go with Pure grips next time.  Nothing will change my mind.

Pure Grips, DTX Red.  On every club except my putter.  

I tried a different Pure Grip a few years ago, wasn't that impressed... I wasn't unimpressed, it just seemed like other grips.  Then I picked these up, but then I got new irons and couldn't bring myself to replace all my clubs with their new grips with different ones -- it felt wasteful to me.

A month or so ago, a friend of mine and I regripped mine with these Pure grips.  He had never used an air compressor to put on grips, despite having put on a lot of grips in his time!  He thought it was fun and interesting, I got new grips on and to hang out with my friend, and now I really like these grips.

PURE Grips FTMFW. DTX Midsize. 

Winn grips are probably the worst grips on the market when it comes to longevity.

lamkin full cord.  They tear your hands/glove up, but haven't found a better combo for my VERY sweaty hands in TN humidity than those grips and FJ rain grip gloves.

My experience as well.  Winn had some promotion a few years ago where I was at my local golf shop and they had a free Winn regrip.  My driver needed a regrip so I got it done with the promotion.  I think that grip lasted six months, and that was during my era of "practice short game primarily" so it isn't like I was hitting a bunch of driver shots at the range.

Interesting. Maybe Winn isn't the same brand I remember them as 10 years ago. I just remember not having any issues at all before I stopped playing and my clubs originally had Winn xi7's on irons and I had a Winn Wrap on my driver. The guy at the shop did tell me that the Wrap on the driver would probably need to be replaced before the other ones but it felt amazing so I didn't care.

Have you used Golf Pride Z cord? I’ve used those for the same problem and they are rough as tree bark and will not slip.

Agree. Crossline full cord. Closest thing to wrapping sandpaper around your shafts, but those suckers aren't going anywhere. You can dunk those grips in a bucket and go hit balls with them.

That being said, I might try some Royal Grip cords next as they seem to have good reviews and cost what the Lamkins did 15 years ago.

I might try it out next regrip.  I've heard of them and held a grip handle in hand before with that grip, but went back with old reliable.

And... Tour Velvet grips are by far the most popular grips used on tour. That must mean something, when they can have whatever they want for free.

People often assume that the most expensive grips are "the best".

I used New Decades for a few years but now use Tour Velvet and Lamkin REL 3 Gen. I much prefer them.

Well, dang! And I was just about to offer you a million bucks to stay with these grips! :-D 

Seriously, I mistakenly said I use "CP2" grips but I actually have the "CP2 Pro" grips with 3 wraps. Sorry for the mistake.

The Tour Velvet are very good grips when brand new, but in my experience, they lose tackiness fairly quickly.  For a Tour player, who can have new grips put on his clubs every day of the week, longevity isn't an issue, but these may not be great choice for those of us who want our grips to last for a while.

My personal choice is Iomic X-Evolution.  They stay pretty tacky for a very long time, even when things get wet.  Second choice is Pure DTX.

Those look slippery.  Do you have sweaty hands and/or play in humidity?  I can't even play without a rain glove and full cords, and even then I gotta towel everything and hope for the best.

    • Just wait until you pure a 4 iron. It's probably not the real answer, either, if you think about it. There are golfers.. and then there are golfers who actively participate on a golf forum 
    • I've used the Golf Pad app for this on iOS.  It lets you enter clubs and then uses the data to suggest clubs as you play.  Costs $20 per year subscription.  I mostly like it as it works with my Pebble watch.  Also works with Apple watch.
    • Lake Chabot has huge elevation changes, and the greens are very tiny. There are only a few flat holes on the entire course. I've played it enough times with a slope enabled rangefinder that I have a pretty good idea of how I need to club up/down. Also, many of the east bay courses are really dry and firm right now, so there is a lot of roll out. Haven't played Lake Chabot since early May, so not sure what condition it's in now. Here's my recollection of how I played elevation changes last time around. Hole #2, par 3, uphill: I usually club up 1X unless pin is in the front. Hole #3, par 5, extreme uphill approach: I usually club up 2X for this one Hole #4, par 5, also has has an extreme uphill approach: I usually club up 2X Hole #5, par 4, extreme downhill hole: Bombs away with driver Hole #6, par 4, uphill all the way, but short, so maybe 1X club up if laying up. Green is close to reachable for me, so usually I am pitching onto the green Hole #7, par 3, moderate uphill: 1- 2X club up, depending on wind, pin location Hole #8, par 5, downhill tee shot, moderate uphill approach: Bombs away with driver, maybe club up 1X on approach depending on distance. Hole #9, par 3, extreme downhill: This hole is stupid, probably at least 40 yards downhill, but maybe 140 yards from tee to green. I usually club down 2X but depending on wind this varies. Hole #10, par 4, uphill: Another short hole, so clubbing up depends on how aggressive you are off the tee. Probably a 1X club up if laying back off the tee. Hole #11, par 4, uphill approach: At least a 1X club up. Hole #13, par 4, uphill: Another shorter hole, so probably a 1X club up if playing conservative off the tee. Hole #16, par 4, uphill approach: Again, depends on if your tee shot lands in the flat section of the fairway, or if you play aggressively and get closer to the green. Probably a 1-2X club up if playing all the way up the hill. Hole #17, par 3, uphill: Usually 1X club up, but maybe 2 if into the wind. Hole #18, par 6, downhill and uphill: Another stupid hole. Tee shot is slightly downhill. I think that the fairway doglegs left at around 260-280 yards and basically goes 350 yards straight down an extremely steep hill. Then back up almost to half the elevation you just went down. Most players will have their second shot from somewhere around the top of the hill. The second shot on this hole, which is often blind around the dogleg, will usually roll all the way down this hill to the valley in the bottom, regardless of what club you hit. I've hit a 7-iron 280 yards here. Then you have a ridiculous uphill shot that goes back up almost half of the hill you just came down to a green that seems like it's the size of a living room rug. Probably at least 2X club up back up the hill, but I can never really tell. My drive from my last round on the par-6 18th rolled out to 424 yards. I spent 10 minutes looking for my ball around where I saw it bounce, and I was ready to drop in the fairway with a 2-stroke penalty, when one of the guys I was playing with drove his cart another 100+ yards down the fairway and found my ball. It was really well struck, so it might have carried 275 at most, and then bounced over the crest of the hill and rolled another 150 yards downhill and stopped against one of the cart path switchbacks. 
    • I try and get a feel of vanilla, then add mods. Have 300+ on Skyrim. 
    • Oftentimes tournament courses will open Monday to the public to play, with the same Sunday pin placements, so you can essentially play the course the pros played.
