New Black Widow Grips

18 posts in this topic

So I finally got around to installing my Black Widow Tour Silk grips last night after another Golfsmith shipping screw up. I think they look great, we'll see how long they stay white but the price was pretty good so if I have to change them out in the near future its not a big deal. Going to the golf store this afternoon to pick up a new pair of Footjoy Dryjoys and a 52* Wedge. Going to be a good day. Anyways let me know what you guys think.

I play the same exact ones and I cant tell you how much I love them.  Everywhere I go I get compliments on them as well.  Everytime I go to Golf Galaxy the guy who grips them for me tells me someone is gonna steal my clubs because they are so badass haha.

So I went and hit a large bucket (170 balls) and I have to say I LOVE these grips. They have a great feel, and the look is amazing. The guy in the range stall next to me would stop every 3-4 balls and turn and just stare at them. LOL finally I looked at him and said "looks like you want to ask me something?" he kinda giggled and said that he really liked the grips and hadn't saw any like that before. I'm sure they will eventually get dirty, good thing I bought 26 of them right off the bat. Something just told me I would enjoy them. So my conclusion so far is that they were well worth the investment both looks and functionality. Plus I only paid $3.35 a grip, so I think I got a pretty good deal.

Been using them for a few months now, they do get a green tint to them but clean up pretty well with warm water and some simple green. ( 409 works well also but I like the simple green better because it is more Eco friendly )

bought a TEE CB2 three wood with this grip (black). a little worn but all in all very comfortable. Had not heard of them but so far i like them alot and might consider there "multicompound" version on my woods/hybrids.

Anybody using these having that disliked "melt in you hand" (gooey) feel from these grips? im considering pulling the trigger on a set of these but im only worried about how they wear in the heat.

I have a crap load of Black Widow "Edge" grips that I got from The Golfworks for .99¢ each.  They were supposedly blemished grips, but I can't find anything wrong with them.  Regripped my brothers set with them and he loves them.

Watch out cause Black widow grips will catch on. I work in a golf shop in canada and can hardly keep them in stock.

Love my black widows. Put the Half Cords from Driver to Pithcing Wedge and put the Signature II on the wedges along with rifle spinners.  Added the Signature grip to the Putter.  The Widow Maker half cords are great as they have great traction.  The Signature II are perfect for the wedge game as they provide great feel.  The putter grip is the same way and has improved my putting.  I get alot of other golfers checking out the girps and everyone who tries the short game clubs loves the feel.  The spiders look particularly cool agains the Aldila RIP Skull and Bones.  Just in time for Halloween.

Can't beat that price. I wore through mine in a season, switched to Golfpride Tour Wrap 2G in White. I loved the Black Widows, but I played right through them, and they got slippery. I was playing 3 times a week and hitting the range 2-3 of the other days a week. Good Luck.

I have the TourSilk grips on my irons and the WidowMaker red/black on my wedges. Both feel great (I don't wear gloves) and look good too. The TourSilk is obviously a more subtle look and the WidowMaker has a bold sporty appearance. TourSilk: WidowMaker:

Finally got around to mounting my Bw signature´s on the sticks + a medium putter grip. Had the "signature 2" on my 3w and (old) hybrid during the season and l just loved them, so can´t wait to get out and try the rest now.

The driver and new hybrid will get theirs soon enough aswell, but just couldn´t justify for myself to cut the new grips off of them :)

Nice. Rockbottom had a special on their low end/entry level grips earlier in the year. Like $1 or $2 per, so I tried them. I thought they wouldn't be as good as Golf Pride, but so far, they haven't lost their tackiness. If I see that special again, I'm going to get a whole bunch.

    • The most esoteric golf tournament name ever...
    • Hey all, we are off and running.  My #1 shot a 79 at a collegiate course where we played the "white tee positions" for the majority of the tournament.  She was working on an exceptional round when she triple bogeyed hole 18.  She is real long off of the tee.  She is rock solid on the green.  Word is finally out there about her and I've worked hard at getting her name in front of college coaches.  After this showing (2nd) she has received 5 emails from 5 colleges this week.  Tonight, she shot par on our home course.  That is a great feat since our course was under water a week ago.  The fairways are not good and there is now a lot of standing water and GUR.  The next golfer was 5 shots behind and she is the #1 for a traditionally state ranked team.  Unfortunately, the rest of my team didn't do so well.  We play tomorrow again. It will be a major chore.  These mosquitoes are gigantic.  I have welts all over me and I sprayed a couple of times.  My #2 shot a 51 and looks like she has hives.  Her mosquito repellent can was  empty and I didn't know it until she was on hole #5.  She said that she was playing in a cloud of mosquitoes.  Tonight, I had my wife go buy new Deep Woods Off for every player.  We will put a can in each player's bag.  I've never seen anything like this but the corn fields around the course are all still under water.  Some Notes: My golfers have a hard time learning how to line up their shots.  We work on various things but it doesn't sink in for some time. My players have swings that are too long.  Most look like John Daley and so, I have to help them control that back swing better.  We spend a lot of time working on putting and we putted really well tonight.  The problem is, we didn't get off the tee box in good fashion due to alignment.  We have trouble everywhere and our course is very tight.  My softball player turned golfer as a favor to me will play as #4 tomorrow.  She has played golf for exactly 2 weeks now.  We have trees everywhere.  I have to teach all of my players how to hit stingers low and long.  I have three players that can do so and draw the ball doing it.  We shot a 205 as a team tonight.  That isn't very good.  Tomorrow, we have to do a lot better.  (We still beat a couple of teams since the conditions were so bad.  It was also 100+ heat index)
    • Yeah, the ex-marshal did go a bit overboard. Not sure if he would have really pulled the trigger or not, though. One thing for sure, the thief will think twice before attempting to steal club again. In fact, anyone reading the article might give it a second thought.   That's kind of true.
    • I apologize guys....heres the video
    • I just can't narrow it down to one or two items... Stihl MS 180 chainsaw - 12 years of heavy use and it simply won't die. Even dropped an ash tree on it years ago. I have a larger Stihl but prefer to use the little fella. It may be starting to lose compression. If so, I'll buy the same model as a replacement. Carvin solid body electric. Love this guitar. I also have a Guild Starfire IV Semi-hollow body electric which is a beautiful instrument. I play the Carvin a lot more. iMac (purchased in 2007). I'd love to get a new Mac Mini, but this thing is still running strong going on 10 years - even if 60 fps, 1080 video doesn't run very well on it. Firearms and reloading equipment. All of it. Have to get back into reloading. 2004 Silverado 1500. The Northern Winters have taken a toll on her. Stays parked a lot now but is still my all-time favorite vehicle.
