Winn Hero Camo Grips?

12 posts in this topic

Saw them in a magazine and they look sweet!! Also saw them on ebay, but it was just the putter grip. They do sell the grips for other clubs, right?

I think this post might get me in some trouble, but please do not misconstrue what I am trying to say. I prompt my post with the following:

1 - I am 100% grateful for the sacrifice that military people make.

2 - I have a number of friends that are in the military and I support them 100%.

3 - I support donations to foundations that assist the military personnel and their families.

However I absolutely hate when companies do these types of marketing campaigns.  When I see ones like the Winn grips and the Srixon camo boxes last year, it makes me slightly angry.  I get that they are trying to generate money for the foundations and charities...but please don't be fooled by these marketing ploys that are trying to generate revenues.  If Winn is actually concerned with assisting the Troops First Foundation why not give all the sales from the grips to the foundation and not just a "portion"?  I understand marketing (as I have a degree in it) however I don't agree with this type of marketing that makes it look like they are doing some worthy AND THEN to use a name for the grip like "Hero" as to pull a little more on the emotions of the buyers is just an exclamation point.  I think this is tasteless and classless...JAT.

Quinn, As a professional marketing executive myself I am in complete agreement with you. It is a huge peeve of mine. Especially when you read the fine print and they throw in a limiting disclaimer.

Couldn't have said it any better. I have real problems with marketing, not only in golf. When I first saw the commercial I rolled my eyes, just like I do whenever I see some washed up pro or teacher as a spokesman for "instant" golf fixes. If you were a real golfer, you would not doop your own kind into believing that sh*t. Working at a golf shop, I see so much junk people buy off the tv and such, it's sad. But when I saw this, my immediate reaction was one of anger, they are using the troops as a means of selling grips! As you said, if you really cared, all their PROFIT should go to special armed forces foundations, yet, these pigs make money off of poor troops and emotions of a buyer. They're 0 for 2 so far. Besides the fact I hate Winn grips, I will never buy one because of this. tasteless and classless to the core!

All funds should be donated to veteran funds or whatever, I agree. I like the look of the grips, so I bought one for my putter and it looks sweet.

    • It was fun to watch, Rory slowly moving up the leaderboard and with Chappell becoming a bit nervy on the final holes, Rory made it into a playoff. Rory didn't take full advantage of his shots on the par 5, and on the 15th I thought he had lost it. But great putts on the 15th and 16th to win in. What a fantastic golfer to watch, and he can smash the ball out there, almost hit his drive it in the lake on 18.
    • The length of the driving range is limited by houses and a road. So the ball flight is way shorter as with normal balls. So what reads 200 yards on the driving range in reality is much shorter. But I think this does not really matter for now. What I found out is the following. When doing my grip I twist my left wrist extremly to the right. At impact this delofts my clubs a big time. The head is very closed. The iron 7 I was talking about at least becomes an iron 4 loftwise ( i am judging this by eye on comparing to my other clubs). So now numbers maybe begin to make sense. Loftwise we are talking about an iron 4. What happens to the driver is that it even gets a negative loft which explains why balls just go up in the air with a very long tee. The 3 wood on the other hand gets the loft the driver should have. So this makes the longest shots. This is also explains why I had a very hard time hitting my hybrid. This hybrid (4 iron) becomes something like a club with loft 0.  So probably I am twisting my wrist to much ( there is a special term for this hand position which I don't remember). But this gives me 2 advantages. 1) I don't slice the ball with the driver 2) It is easier to hit down on the ball with the iron for me. Before this I had the wrist turned to the left (I think this is called neutral grip) which did not work at all for me. So I think in general this hand position helps a lot when not overdoing it. The V of the left hand index and middle finder should point to the right shoulder as far as I know. My V pointed right of my shoulder. I will tweak this position a bit. I think I am just overdoing it at the moment. I am pretty sure the iron 7 distance will get down when doing this and the driver distance will get up. We will see.
    • How many softball questions get lobbed at each candidate? How many times will Trump say "Believe me!" and "It's like incredible" the word "tremendous" and "Crooked Hillary" How many times Hillary will dance around the e-mail scandal? Will Hillary blow up? Will Hillary challenge Trump to do arithmetic? Or will that be out of bounds? It will be interesting to hear how lowering taxes on the rich and lowering corporate taxes will balance the budget - I've heard that whopper before. Will Trump challenge Hillary on the 2nd amendment? Will Hillary challenge Trump on his pandering to the religious right with the "freedom of speech and religion" proposal to allow discrimination against GLBT people.  Will either of them persuade me to not vote for Gary Johnson?
    • Haha, I've done that while walking.  The thing that made it embarrassing for me is I did it 2 or 3 times in the same round before I finally started catching myself.
    • I think there's a large old thread exactly like this already actually, just need to dig it up. Anyway, weirdest I've encountered was people rolling a cart.  I've also hit 2 geese myself (both with drives).
