Just wondering what type of grip everyone likes. Not neccesaraly the brand but the texture etc, also do you grip all you clubs the same or do you gip your diver different than your iron and you wedges.

My palms sweat, sometimes profusely, to the point where I have to bring 4 gloves to play a round. So, I need a grip that is sticky even when my hands are sweaty. I use Wynn 5s because they have the perfect texture for my hands, and they're really soft as well. The feel from soft grips is beautiful to me, and when I mishit the ball these grips absorb a lot of shock and don't hurt my hands and wrists, which is generally more pleasant. I grip all my wedges, irons, and woods the same.

I've used nothing but Winn for close to 15 years or so... preferring the firmer end of their line.  Both for feel and for added durability as compared to the softer Winns.

To think we EVER used black and green golf pride Victory grips!!  Well... I guess we once wore tighty-whities too......

I've always used gp tour wrap after they came on my set of mizuno tc29s 15 years ago.

I don't wear a glove and play in very humid conditions.  I like a cord grip and prefer is to be pretty rough, I use the same grips on all my clubs, even my putter.

I am using the new Golf Pride, VDR's, white color. Medium sized, with two extra wrappings of tape.

I use the same grip for everyshot, unless i want to fade then i weaken my right hand. My grip is seeing two knuckles on the left hand, and the V on my right hand pointing towards my right shoulder. I use this on everyshot.

Mid golf pride cord on everything except my irons.  Winn g8 mid's on my irons.  I will eventually switch the irons over to cord, but my money is best spent elsewhere at the time because I really don't mind the g8 grips.  I don't use a glove and play in Minnesota, this means my hands are always sweaty.  The g8's get slippery in the rain or humidity, but the cord grips are always awesome.

Love Winn Grips. I play the medium firm 5xi BRD on both woods and irons. I also use medium Winn Medalist grip on my putter. I don't play with a glove and there is no slipping or rotating that I've noticed during my swing.

try iomic sticky's, I like a nice thin grip and use the 2.3, they are made in Japan, very high quality, but a bit pricey.  you can pick them up on Ebay for a decent price if you have the patience.  I think regular retail is around $20.00/per.  I was sceptical until I tried them, they are unreal, I don't use a glove, and if they are a little damp they are actually more sticky than when they are dry.  I have taken my club rolled it in the wet grass wiped the grip with a damp towel and then handed it to a playing partner and they almost fall over, they cannot believe how sticky they are and how good the grip feels.  check them out if you are a serious player you will buy them.  For they guy's who play in humid conditions do yourself a favor and go buy one and put it on the club you use the most, I can guarantee you will change all your cord grips over, I used to use multi-compound half cords, they are good, but not even close to the iomic's

Iomic Sticky's.... they are pricey as stated compared to other types but well worth it. I got mine from fusiongrips.com... standard pricing but best selection, free shipping and a rewards program.

    • I agree that Acree put others in danger. And as I stated before, the laws regarding weapons and/or assault need to be enforced in this case. And the rest of my statements only apply if he was fairly certain this guy was the thief (of which none of us knows the truth). I don't care in the least that he threatened the guy's life or kicked him in the head. If I stole from someone, I would expect the same treatment. I promise you, most thieves know it's coming if they get caught by the wrong person. As for leaving this up to the police to solve and retrieve the property... sorry, but that's naive. Go ahead and look the statistics up of recovered stolen property - excluding motor vehicles. As for the police not using what some may view as excessive force... when someone is acting as this guy did, I don't believe they are very "gentle" with them. I don't think they can afford to be. They may be smart enough not to kick anyone, but they'll make sure those cuffs are on nice and tight. I'd love to hear from a law enforcement officer - even if it meant my opinion was proven wrong. But because the rest of us have zero experience in apprehending a suspected criminal, none of us are qualified to do more than offer our stupid-ass opinions. It's a pissing contest of opposing views that will likely lead to the thread being closed. There is no one way to act in this situation. You can think of yourselves as highly intelligent on one side of the argument, or Dirty Harry on the other. But this crap goes way beyond reason or ego. When faced with the situation, you either act, or you don't. And if you're going to act, you can't go halfway. Probably the best thing Acree could have done - once he pulled his weapon - was threaten the guy's life and leave no doubt (at least that's my stupid-ass opinion). I wouldn't have done what he did and that's why I leave my weapons at home. But criminals love the fact that most of us are passive.
    • Hi guys, been working on the swing. Had a few lessons, playing once or twice a week and got down to a score of 20 over par (92 on a 72). But still really struggling with inconsistency. Losing a lot of balls each round, have a bad miss when I come through the ball with a wide open club face and the ball screams straight right out of bounds. Did this on the first tee this week into someone's house...not good when the club pro and loads of people were watching. A dog was barking for the next few minutes :( Any tips? saving up for some more lessons soon but they are expensive to get as much as I want.
    • Chainsaws get heavy if you carry your clubs, gotta take a cart.
    • So the younger guy on the original is a science teacher in nearby, (for me), Middleborough MA. I think it was high school.
    • I know you mentioned it, but you're showing yourself as a 30+ handicap.  For the next few years, the sole grind of your wedges isn't going to be nearly as important as learning to use them properly.  In your shoes, I'd be looking at lightly used clubs in approximately the right loft/bounce combinations, without getting too bogged down in the next level of details.
