New Grips

Recommended Posts

namkrats    3

Hey SandTrappers I am planning on regripping my clubs this winter after I get a new driver and a hybrid. I will regrip all my clubs with the same grip and can't decide between the Golfpride New Decade Multicompounds which my friend has and i really like the feel of or the Golfpride Tour Velvets witch another friend of mine has. I really like the feel of both however I live in Toronto Canada and play in fairly high humidity during the summer and am also concerned on wear and how each grip will hold up in rain and humidity. Any input is much appreciated as well as any suggestions on other grips I should take a look at.

Thanks

I personally really like the multi-compound which I currently use.  I have used the tour velvets and feel that the multi-compounds are more durable and I like the feel.  The link below might help you out

Ive looked at that grip selector before and it always says multi compound Ive been playing with a stock nike and taylormade grip on my irons and driver since I got new clubs so may be a little biased but i will defiantly head to my nearest golf store and try both out

There is also no difference in the actual grip of the multi compounds depending on the colour right

I vote for regripping with a PURE grip.

Hi, just regripped with the Golf Pride Tour Velvet BCT grips on my AP-2s, the previous one were the Multi Compound which were very good wearing but I decided on the BCTs because they really feel fantastic (much better than the previous ones).  Next will be the woods.....very soon

Cheers

Jim

I recently (few months ago) regripped with Golf Pride Tour Velvet midsize and LOVE them...they look and feel great in all kinds of conditions and wear like iron-and are quite inexpensive to boot!....it's no accident that Tour Pros who can grip with any brand they please so often choose Golf Pride Tour Velvet....methinks that if they choose to play this grip for a million bucks on any given Sunday...perhaps they will serve me just as well in a 5 buck Nassau   :)

No, same grip, just different colors.

Especially if you do it yourself.  Definitely end up saving $ by going this route

Yeah, plus I think they're a better grip. They last a lot longer and though I like the corded section, those grips wear out faster and wear your hands out faster (less practice). :-)

So I ended up going with the Multicompounds in light blue as my clubs were regripped as a Hanukah gift and can't say enough about them. Really great gift. Also received some myjoys for hanukah and a surprise gift of optishot. Needless to say the holidays are off to a great start Cheers everyone and happy holidays

Grip choice is an extremely personal decision!   I am in the extreme minority and use only Golf Pride Full Cord.

I don't even recommend it because full cord definitely isn't the grip of choice for most people..

........I prefer a rough texture for those hot/humid days.

    • I play steel in my 4 and 6 hybrids (dont play a 5 at the moment). The 4 is TM burner with a OEM steel shaft but the 6 is one i built on the cheap as an experiment. Its an Acer XDS, fitted with an Appollo steel shaft. Its the cheapest one they do and its spot on. You can get the Appollo Shadow lite are Acculite for decent prices through Nordica golf 
    • It's not an informed opinion but I have tried a DG s300 in a 5 wood head and found that the overall weight was very heavy. I was able to get the swingweight down to d2 but the whole club felt like I was swinging a mallet. Since the DG SL is about 20grams lighter ( lower ball flight) or AWT ( Mid Ball flight) I would opt for either of these, bearing in mind that the shaft would have to be parallel tip hosel .370 to fit the Adams Pro .370. ( I could be wrong here but hopefully someone that knows more will pitch in )
    • Hiya All I've been Playing Golf for: 10 years - with a 5 year kid break My current handicap index or average score is: 18
      My typical ball flight is: pull/pull draw
      The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: pull draw Current swing thoughts are -Posture don't arch back and neck -Start backswing with right ass cheek -Just rotate on the way back, don't sway to the right -downswing - rotate body, rotate, rotate...ROTATE! -impact try to drive club face forward (impact bag feeling) not flip Not all at the same time, of course! Videos:      The hand signals show the ball flight on DTL. This is a 6I This is a selection of shots, I've not given you the highlights real. Shank happens once every 20-30 Push every 15-20 over draw every other shot.  
    • Probably this,   No specifically, but the overall confidence level is probably low.  
    • This I really agree with.  Really   As it happens I went for the trackman certified guy.  Thanks for the all the thoughts, At lot of them made a lot of sense. Not sure I really got an answer into the fundamental question -How do you know if the advice you are being given is just plain wrong? I, for one, don't want to waste a couple of months being shown the wrong path.  It's a difficult game and weeding out the good advice from the bad is tricky.  The best I've found is to look at how an instructor fixes a "problem"  If they talk about fixing the movements that lead up to the problem, the previous links in the chain, then they get more points.  If they just fix the problem without referring to anything else, then they lose points with me.   Thanks for the help all. Now to get to the range again!
