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.

Golf Pride Tour Velvet in mid-size.  They are inexpensive, clean up well, and last for years.

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.

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

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.

    • That really seems to be a rational approach to this. We aren’t going back to the old school names; (I don’t think…) ? And iron numbers have been rendered meaningless. So you approach creating a club set by saying,” well, I need a driver, a fairway club around 18 degrees, and a …..”   I think this says it pretty well! 
    • Remove the entire rubber spike mold from the screw with vise grip, micro wire cutter and needle nose pliers.  They rotate off easily if you snip the rubber at each end of the screw holes.  Your flat "specialty" plug with  tighten with  the usual tool.  Most current shoes have sufficient spikeless  tread to keep the exposed metal head from damaging any surface.
    • Having switched to blade irons this year I fully agree. It was surprising to me how forgiving they actually are on mishits. They seem more consistent overall to me with decent contact somewhere on the face. Maybe the big sole on GI irons help a bit more with a fat shot, idk. The feedback with blades is great, I love that.
    • And that’s it isn’t it? If you don’t hit a club well, and you’ve given it a thorough trial, why fight the obvious? Try something else! Or ask, “do I really need this club?” And as a case in point, it seems you’ve found an older driver that you really like and hit well. I really don’t believe we play this game for the purpose of keeping the club manufacturers in business.
    • Bought a Pure Plane Pro. Actually two. I forgot I got it the first time and it didn't arrive so got another and they both eventually came which actually works out because it turns out I'd want two. Got tired of carrying the DIY PVC that holds the sticks around (as you can see in the photo below, the PVC takes up a lot more space), thanks for the tips Erik, they served me well, and like the portability of the PPP. Usually this kind of aid is a lot more expensive because it's made of solid metal I guess and the PPP is made of plastic except the screws(?). Not sure of the longevity, will have to see, but I like the product overall, using clubs to anchor the PPP is brilliant. It's small, easy to setup, pretty adjustable and I've yet to use it in more creative ways. If you have a nub in your alignment stick, you'll have to take it off to fit the notch (see third photo, bottom notch nub is sticking out). I've learned to put it back upright after hitting the stick without kneeling over, lol. Now that I don't have to carry PVC around, it's a lot less likely someone will yell out to me, its-a me-a, Mario! This is a rapid hit first impression, I'll post more as I gain more experience with it.
