Grips, Grips, Grips

What Grips do you guys prefer for Drivers, Irons / Wedges, and Putters?

I prefer the New decade grips for my irons and recently put one on my driver and it feels very different.  Not bad, just a little weird.  Anyone else have a similar situation?

I know that you guys wont all agree on one particular grip.

Just regripped my driver with a Decade multi-compound midsize +1 wrap.  It originally came with a TM branded  Decade and it was pretty good for the dry climate I live in, so I kept it the same. My irons are Titleist branded Golfpride Tour Velvets (round, turned logo down) and my wedges are Lamkin Crossline Tours.  Putter is a Lamkin Crossline Paddle.

I've got the NDMCs on all of my irons and fairway woods, a GP DD2 on one of my drivers, a NDMC one another, and the stock grip +2 wraps on my VR STR8-Fit driver. On my wedges I have standard Titleist/Golf Pride Tour Velvet on my wedges, with a couple of extra wraps. HOWEVER, my PURE Grips and installation gun were delivered yesterday, so I'll be swapping out grips on something. Havent decided what I'm putting them on yet. Maybe my JPX-800 Pro's.

I play the Golf Pride New Decade on all my clubs, even one of my putters has that grip.  I'm am sold on them, I don't wear a glove and like the rough texture, plus I play in a humid area of the country and they hold up on those hot, humid summer days.

What other grips have you used for comparison?  I demo'd the BCT at a local golf store, and liked the feel, but I currently have had the GP Tour Velvet on most of my clubs for almost two seasons with good results.  For my next grip, I am looking for better moisture control and responsiveness, which, according to the GP grip selector, the BCT is the highest ranked in these categories.

The rub is that the BCT is nearly three times the price and more firm verses the Tour Velvet.  If the BCT lasts longer with better overall results, then it may be my next grip.

I prefer the Tour Velvet too.  I don't like cord grips.  Used them briefly a long while back.  I've also used the Tour Wraps.  I think I just prefer the lighter feel I get the Velvets.  I have no interest i paying for the new high dollar grips.  I just don't see any advantage for added cost.  I change my grips at least yearly, sometimes twice in  year - just can't justify that expense.

I have GP Tour Velvets on all my clubs, with the exception of my Bobby Jones fairway and hybrid that have the original Bobby Jones branded Winn V17 grips on them (lightweight).  I have a Tiger Shark Ultratac grip coming to try on my putter.  I love the feel of the Tour Velvets, and the price can't be beat.

I have lived a sheltered life when it comes to grips, but, I have no regrets as I like the Tour Velvets.  Whenever I try another grip, the TV is the standard to which all is compared.  Cords seem a bit too firm for my liking, but the BCT seemed  a bit tamer, while having better moisture control (so they say).

It will most likely come down to price, and the TV's will most likely stay.  I will probably buy one BCT just to check it out...who knows.

You're gonna love the PUREs... I have the soft wraps on my clubs and love them... and the installation couldn't be any simpler.

Believe it or not, I've had the grips and installation tool for a few weeks and havent had the chance to do my own. I did use their tool to install NDMCs for a friend, and it was really simple and quick. I was very impressed. But yeah, I cant wait to try PURE's actual grips out.

I have tried the Golf Pride Tour Velvet, the Golf Pride New Decade MultiCompound, the Golf Pride Tour Wrap 2G, and Winn Lite firm. They are all fine grips (Tour Wrap 2G and Winn Lite) not so great when wet. My favorite, and one I have on all my clubs is the Lamkin Crossline Full Cord. They are great in all weather conditions and give me great control.

Lamkin Performance + 3gen mid-size on my irons and wedges.  GP Tour Wrap built up with tape on my driver.  Stock Rossa/TaylorMade on my putter, I think it's a Winn.

I have pretty big hands & have sore fingers on my right hand after a round.    I put a Lamkin Oversize grip on my LW & absolutely love it.     Just ordered a grip kit from Golfsmith & will be changing all of my clubs over to this grip - just feels so much more substantial to me.        Regular grips feel like a pencil by comparison ...

    • This is a totally reasonable approach.  Thought I'd throw in my method for this as another option. I hold the club sticking straight away from belt buckle or so, parallel to the ground, with my right hand.  Then, with my hand splayed out a bit (not crazy stretch or anything, but not fingers touching) and flat, I choose an angle to hold my left hand, place the handle in the "right" position, so resting on the middle section of my pointer finger, resting on or a touch towards the wrist from the bottom knuckle of the pinkie finger.  Then wrap the fingers onto the handle, then roll the hand towards the handle to a comfortable spot. For me this method gives a consistent grip, and I can control strong/weak just by the angle of my left hand before I place the handle.  If my left hand plane is perpendicular to the ground, I'll get a super strong grip, too strong.  With the left hand plane parallel to the ground, I'll get a weak grip, probably too weak, though for me I don't think it ends up as overly weak as the perpendicular way ends up over strong. If I have time tonight maybe I'll take some pics to make this clearer... I've always felt this way too, but I've often wondered if more knowledgable players or instructors also liked to see the full speed clips to get a feel for the dynamics of the swing.  Like, maybe at full speed you can get a feel for the dynamics and athletic motions a player is trying to use that a player is trying to use that wouldn't be obvious at slow speed.  Maybe that might help an instructor decide which things are a priority, or which path or feel or drill towards fixing something is most likely to succeed with that player? I suppose you're saying that's not true, at least not for you?  Like, you get all of that from the slo-mo?  Or that might be useful for an instructor of tour players but the shit we've all got wrong with our swings is so basic that it's not needed?  Something else?
    • I handed out a bunch of likes in this here thread. Ready golf or GTFO!! 
    • noted. and, thank you.  
    • ...and I can change from suit and tie to full-on golf attire in 10 minutes flat, while doing 50 mph!  
    • Like I said… your tempo is probably too slow if you can't get a 30-footer to the hole on slow greens. You're not hitting a lot of greens, so even two- and three-putting that often is not a great sign. You're not often putting from 40 feet away like some people who hit more greens. You're putting after a chip or a pitch shot more often, and those tend to be shorter putts. Start a Member Swing topic or post video of yourself hitting long putts to it if you have one already.
