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.

    • A run of the mill slice is something I can actually live with (though it'll be an annoying existence).  A push slice is probably the most off line I ever get with a shot (even more than a shank due to distance) as it starts right and goes further right.  Luckily those are so rare that when they do pop up they usually aren't in a spot where it causes me trouble.
    • The point that I was specifically responding to was, just because you're on top of another group, it still may be appropriate to allow others through.  Just because @No Mulligans hadn't experienced it, didn't mean that the concept was moot by any means... And fwiw, our relatively fast group has allowed 5-somes through....
    • These guys haven't gotten to where they are without being ultra-competitive.  I don't think the lack of money had any real effect on their desire to win.
    • The slice is just such a devastating miss for your game. It is a shot that I really have to eliminate from my game. I am an incredibly inconsistent player, to the point where I can be hitting a beautiful high fade and start to go pin hunting for several holes, having several looks at birdie in a row and then within the next several holes be almost unable to hit the ball without hitting a horrendous slice. I am so inconsistent that it is not abnormal for me to go something like par, birdie, par, birdie, par, quad, quad, quad in an eight hole stretch.
    • I recently won some pro shop credit ($100) at a semi-private course nearby.  Thing is, I need to use it before November or it expires. I don't really need any clothes or accessories so I was thinking I might put it towards a new driver.  The problem is, while I'm sure I can test it out on the range, they just have regular old range balls and I'm doubtful there's any kind of fitting process.  I also can't really play a round there with a demo club unless I'm someone's guest or I'm willing to shell out $100+ to play off-peak times (which I'm not).  There's a decent golf shop down the road from the course that offers fittings for $75/hour, with a $50 credit toward a related purchase within 30 days.  I've never had a proper fitting, so would it make sense to go to the golf shop, get fit, assume I'll probably get a custom shaft, go buy the same driver at the pro shop using my credit, and then buy the shaft from the golf store, applying the fitting credit?  When you get fit and end up with a custom shaft, is the shaft price usually totally on top of the full price of the off-the-rack driver, or is there typically a discount since you're not getting the OEM shaft? Obviously different stores do things differently, but I'm just wondering what is common practice. I'm trying not to overthink it but I also don't want to waste my pro shop credit. Any advice would be much appreciated!
