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.

    • Exactly. Unfortunately, we had a ringside seat to just such a thing yesterday.  The group ahead of us had finally made it to the green on 3.  One was in a green side bunker, while the others were on the green itself.  I asked my buddy, blade or chunk, as we watched from 60 yards out.  He said he'd leave it in the bunker.  I won.  Hard blade 30 yards over the green.  The remainder of the group WAITED while he raked the bunker and then walked completely across the green and proceeded to chip all the way back, almost dumping it in the same bunker again.  Again, Larry, Moe, and Curly wait for Bunker Boy to meander back and play his shot before playing theirs.  After all, he was away...   3 more swings and he was finally in the hole.  Total elapsed time that group took from when they reached the green, nearly 15 minutes!   We caught them on the next tee box in time to watch two of them knock it into the junk short of the fairway.  When it became obvious that they had no intention of acknowledging us, we politely asked if we could play through while they searched for their balls, and thankfully they agreed.   3 hours later, as we were teeing off on 18, we saw them driving up to the tee box on 12.  Not good golfers, true, but more than anything, they simply didn't move with any sense of purpose, or efficiency.  If we'd have had to play behind them much longer, I would have cut my own throat with my wedge!  
    • I love watching those shows on the golf channel.  Especially Michael Breed.   But, ultimately, it's not really personalized instruction, so you don't really get too much instruction from it.   Maybe a swing thought idea here and there, and some short game drills to work on.  As a matter of fact, I think a long while ago, I learned how to hit out of the sand from the golf channel.  That is still, to this day, the one skill I gain strokes on all of my friends at.   (unfortunately, I imagine bunker shots are like a SV (-8), given that I have like 1 per round.  tops.) But, it's still quite enjoyable nonetheless.   It's always fun to listen to people talk about the golf swing.  If your'e in to that kinda thing.  
    • Thing is that I don't consider myself a poor putter. I played a tournament on one of the nicest courses in our country yesterday. Probably the fastest greens and they kept getting faster as the sun was shining yesterday (I was told that by a friend in my flight that finished with a 76).  I had 38 putts on 17 holes. I had 5 3 putts. 2 of those 3 putts came on the first 2 holes. And I was rarely inside 10 feet for the first putt. In a round of 101 over 17 holes (had ESC on one par 5 where I picked the ball up) 38 putts were pretty decent. 
    • I carry 4 wedges right now...

      PW - 122 Yards (Max)  115 Yards (90%)
      AW - 107 Yards (Max)  100 Yards (90%)
      54° - 95 Yards (Max)  85 Yards (90%)
      58° - 80 Yards (Max)  75 Yards (90%)

      Inside of 100 yards... it really depends a lot on my lie and where the flag is located.  I like to play a lower flight with my 54° when a pin is back... but I prefer a higher shot with my 58° when a pin is up front.  

      I'm inconsistent (at best) when I get inside 70 yards.  I've tried the 'clock' system with my arms, but I find that if I pay too much attention to my arms, I forget to move my lower body and that leads to some really, really bad results.

    • My 60 is good up to about 75-80 yards mostly 56 is good up to around 100 50 is good up to about 125 ish PW is good up to about 135-140  Of course the are all to be taken with a grain of salt because my swing is pretty junk so these are expected distances on good strikes which do not happen as often as I like. Most of the time I prefer to fall a bit short of my target as opposed to long as the courses around here tend have harder ground and/or more trouble long of the green.
