I used to have tour wraps on my irons/wedges and velvets on my woods and hybrid. now i use all IOMIC grips (in black tho).

i know they're expensive, but follow my plan -

step 1. get your friends good and drunk during the front 9 (cost $20)

step 2. place bets on back 9

step 3. collect $200 bucks at 19th hole

buy the grips in a 13 pc set on ebay for like $180. (like 20% off plus free shipping)

REPEAT EVERY YEAR (or when you want new golf equipment)

ahhahahhahah

NOTE - make sure you play at your home course, and play dawn patrol when the greens are slow, and the marks are cold and sleepy.

2 out of 3 times it works 100%

For years I played tour velvet grips as those are what came standard on the clubs I bought and I never bothered to regrip them.  Last year I regripped everything with Lamkin Permawraps and I really like the feel of them... I haven't had a problem with them getting slick either... just wipe them down and dry them and they are good to go.

The old tour wraps which can be had for cheap were solid in any weather but the new tour wraps are still decent. You just have to wipe them down like any other grip but if you are looking for the best options for wet conditions cord is the way to go.

They both get slick if you ask me. The wraps feel nice and tacky at first but with the way my hands perspire they get real slick real quick. The velvets feel less tackyat first but don't get as slick as the wraps. I've had both and now use cords to avoid my driver slipping and taking one of my friends out.

Lamkin Crossline seem to just get better with age.  I never have issues.  It's been over a year since I switched, and my grips feel better now than they did before.

I wouldn't buy either of them without cord (sweaty hands), at which point they are basically the same grip. Rubber and cord.

I replaced worn tour velvets with tour wraps on my irons, and then went ahead and gripped everything except my driver with the tour wraps.  I'm pretty happy with them.  At first, I only got them because the store was out of the velvets and I figured I'd take a chance.  I don't get terribly sweaty hands or play in wet conditions, so I can't comment much on their wet performance, but I've not had any problems.  I like the softer, tackier feel; we'll see how they hold up as they age (about 8 months old at this point).

i've used both, personally i don't like the tour velvets they just don't feel right. i currently use the tour wraps on my woods, i have two of the older models(bought new cheap), and the new model on my 5w. the differences between the old and new are very minor after the new ones have been gamed a few times. i found the 2g models to be tacky, yet slick when sweaty or wet the first few rounds. after that they are awesome. i suggest them they give a great feel.

I like the Tour Velvets, but you have to keep them clean.  I clean them with mild soap and water and a scotch pad every two to three rounds.  I have sweaty hands and wear wrist sweat bands in the summer.  I don't use a glove either.  I may try chord grips, but in mid-size there are fewer options.

I have the white tour wraps on my driver and wedges.  They can get a bit slick when wet, but as long as you wipe them down they are very tacky.

I have used the .580 Tour Wraps since they came out in the early 90s.  I just switched to the new ones and wish they would make the white in .580.  The jury is still out on the 2G for durability.  The old ones lasted forever (maybe that is why they changed).  I haven't worn a glove in probably 18 years and I wipe them off before every shot with a damp corner of a towel and then the dry end.  I have never had an issue.  I would do the cords but I don't know how they would take all the damp wiping and the bare hands.  Maybe some of you guys can comment.

I've always been a Tour Wrap guy.  I like the softer, tacky feel.  I've never had a problem with the club slipping in my hands.  I've tried cord, multi-compond, etc.... but I always end up coming back to the wrap.

    • PGA2K21 is good. I play it on the PS4. 
    • Day 83 - Spent more time filming swings. It seems I’m correct at A2 or A3, getting both to be what I’m looking for isn’t working. Have more work to do before sending in more swings. 
    • Rule 2 - The Course Notes as follows. These are notes, not a recap or a summary or anything like that. 2.1 - Course Boundaries and Out of Bounds The Committee has to decide where boundaries are. 2.2 - Defined Areas of the Course There are five: general area the teeing area the green penalty area bunker If the ball is in two areas, it's treated as lying in the general area last, or in the order: penalty area, bunker, putting green. 2.3 - Objects or Conditions that can Interfere with Play Just links to other rules for loose impediments, movable obstructions, abnormal course conditions, GUR, temporary water, or immovable obstructions. No relief for boundary objects. 2.4 - No Play Zones Must take relief when ball, stance, area of swing interfered with here can be an ACC or a penalty area
    • Pm back at ya Piz.  This should be fun.  Thank you Adam as well.  We’ll have to keep comparing notes next spring when the weather gets better.  
    • Last lesson of the year today 12/2: Full swing stuff - backswing and tempo were much improved which is what I’ve been working on so happy with that. We discussed the block fade miss caused by open club face. My transition is aggressive which pulls the club face open when the handle of the club starts moving too quickly (or something like that). Quick fix was to have a feel for the club head moving and widening the arc before the handle starts going. Did some work on this at about 75% full speed and then added speed back as I got the hang of it. Putting work - did a putter fitting and when selecting the alignment aid design, I learned that they don’t matter at all for how I aim. Apparently no matter where the target was, I tended to line my aim up around the spatial configuration of the putting area (e.g., aiming parallel to the edge of the putting surface, or a nearby wall). Once I was aware of this behavior and able to consciously overcome it, my initial aim was really good. When I scheduled the fitting with my teacher I had my mind made up on something from the Edel product line, but I tried one of those ridiculous looking LAB putters and it was undeniably good for me, so that’s what I ended up going with.
