Which Golf Pride Grip

I bought a used set of irons and I’m planning on re-gripping them. Which do you prefer between these two and why.
 

MMC +4, or the Tour Velvet +4. Both would be standard size.

I don't really go for any Golf Pride grips. I like PURE.

Which PURE grips do you like best for sweaty handed folks?  Also, do you use just a regular air compressor to put your grips on yourself?  Seems like a great idea.

The DTX, but I can't say for sure as I don't even wear a glove.

Regular air compressor, yeah.

MCC+4 last longer but cost more. I do like the Pure DTX too, but you have to build up the lower section with tape to match the +4 profile. Pure is working on that profile though.

I am currently playing the Tour Velvet. Not an MCC fan but its really personal preference. And gloveless since 1992.

I grew up using Tour Velvet, love the feel.  The price was right and I could never understand what a $10 New Decade grip was gonna do for me vs. the far less expensive Tour Velvet.

When the MCC plus 4 came out I was interested but would no way pay that kind of money.  I picked up a set of Nike Vapor Pro combo irons and to my surprise they came with brand new MCC plus 4’s   I loved them.  I feel I have better control with my right hand now.

What will I do when it’s regripping time?  I’ll do the tour velvet plus 4.  I like the plus 4 idea.  The MCC feel does nothing for me but empty my wallet.

I guess I should rephrase my question then. Is the MMC +4 worth almost twice as much as the TV +4 and why? The +4 grips help with the arthritis in my hands, but $14 a club seems like a bit much for the MMC +4’s. The TV +4 would be $9 each.

Why not just get one club regripped? Say your 7 iron. Try it out and see if you like it.

Big DTX fan here. I used to love the Golf Pride CP2 Pro. 

But ever since trying the PURE DTX, it's no contest. IMO the only reason to use a Golf Pride Grip is if you really like the "Align" feature. In that case I get it. 

I put my PURE DTX's on with a regular compressor as well. I don't even have the special attachment. I find just the "standard" compressor attachment works great. 

BTW - Not that it matters much but I only wear a glove when I hit driver. 

This is what I use to take off or put on my PURE grips. Nothing fancy, it literally came with my air compressor.

Your question was pretty clear to me.  You were only interested in the Golf Pride MCC Plus 4 and the Golf Pride Tour Velvet Plus 4.  Like I mentioned, I wouldn’t pay extra for the MCC.  Love the Plus 4 feel, was soooo happy to see it come out in Tour Velvet at a lower price.

This is the way to go.  Choose 2 or 3 grips you want to try, put each one on a club, and try them out.  Pick the one you like the best, and regrip all your clubs with it.  Yeah, you're wasting the grips you don't choose, but its a lot better than gripping your entire set only to find out you don't really like it.

I play the MCC +4 Align.  Once I tried the Align, I couldn't imagine playing without that feature, as my grip had previously always been an issue.  The +4 is also a great compromise between standard and midsize grips.  I do wish they had Tour Velvet +4 Align, I'd probably play that instead.  But the rubber on the lower hand of the MCC +4 is softer than the rubber on the non +4 MCC, so that helps the comfort level.
