Looking for new grips

12 posts in this topic

I have been in the market for new grips but don't know what I'm looking for.

I would like something that doesn't slip out of my hands too much cuz I tend to sweat a lot.  I am currently testing out a WINN dry and Lamkin crossline and was told the Lamkin would be better, but in fact the WINN seems to stick better.

Any Suggestions ?

Try out the Pure grips.  I bought my first Pure grips on this site when Erik (site owner) worked out a deal with Pure for us to purchase them with the 5SK logo on them.

The grips are installed with an air compressor, (no tape, no solution, etc) and they are by far the best grips I've ever used.  My hands sweat a lot in the summer (usually rotate 4 gloves a round) and I've never had my hands slip using the Pure grips.

The 5SK grips were Pure Pro's but I've since purchased the Pure DTX which compare to corded grips and I like them even better.  They are cheaper than most competitor grips and if you own an air compressor you'll save even more money installing them yourself.

On my clubs I use a golf pride black/white multi compound. I have played with them in the rain and the club doesn't even slip! It's all to your personal preference.

I've been using the Winn - Dry-tecs OS 1/8", you need to get grip-fitted for any grip and it would be by the guy that installs them, I had slippage because I was playing a standard size grip.... They wear pretty good, 60 - 70 rounds for me on wedges and irons, but my driver death grip causes the driver grip to last only maybe 50 rounds.That also includes range work about once a week hitting 90 balls. Every golfer that touches them either Ewws or Awes them. There is a cheaper one by Lamkin or golf pride that is close to these, but I have not tried them yet....

I don't like to switch grips - I use Lamkin because typically they last a long time - when it's hot and I sweat, my first move is a "guerrilla towel." It's a towel with super tackiness that you rub on your grip and/or hands. My second move is a double wrist band I picked up on Amazon - use it on the left wrist, and I also use a glove.

I only use a glove when I must - generally, I go bare handed, as I did today, when a cool front left the temps in the low 90's. I used a little bit of the guerrilla towel.

With the Lamkin, I use the REL 3GEN, and use the Performance Plus Wedge Grips on the Wedges - I like the Wedge Grips, so the Performance Plus would also be on the "must try" list.

I use pure pros, which I love. Also just acquired and reviewed the GP Niions ... And those are winners as well.

Another recommendation for the PURE Pro.  I sweat like crazy and never have an issue with them.  Also might want to check out the PURE P2 Wrap (if you like wrap style) because I installed those on some friends clubs and they just seemed incredibly tacky.  I have been debating trying out the PURE DTX

Can't go wrong with the PURES... And btw, Winn grips suck more than Michael Jackson at a Boy Scouts convention...

I like the Pure DTX even better than the Pro's but they are rough on leather golf gloves, even more so than corded grips.

    • First round foursome clubchampionship was yesterday. First round is to cut the field to 16 pairs, format Stableford without handicap. You get 3 points for a birdie, 2 for a par, 1 for a bogey. Worse than bogey is zero points. My playing partner had the tee off on hole 1 and hit it left in the water. I had a shot avoiding some trees at 140y from the flag and hit it at 3 feet, par.  After 5 holes 9 points (1 bogey), but then a streak of 3 bad holes and still 9 points. But then 3 pars in a row and all together 11 pars and two bogeys (24 points) was enough to end 5th (best team 31 points).  Next weekend we will play against the team that ended 13th. That will be matchplay. 
    • Does it make sense to write ".........combined together"? Why not just write "............combined"? Let's not call the kettle black. Anyway..... the following are excerpts from The Australian Golf Club's Dress Code. They are not typical of what is expected in Australia, but  some of the snootier clubs are very strict and do little to change the stuffy reputation of the game. ‘Sporting attire’. Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. Closed in shoes must be worn with socks at all times (see Definitions for appropriate socks).  Men - Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Trousers must be tailored and worn with a belt. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. When wearing shorts on the course, Members must wear long socks or short white socks which are either plain or which bear only a Golf Club logo. Anklet type socks are not acceptable. Shoes must be of a type which have been specially manufactured for the playing of golf.  Jeans of any description are not acceptable anywhere in the Clubhouse or on the Course. Children 12 years or younger are exempt.  If you turn up here wearing socks with a small Nike logo they will sell you a pair of plain white ones for about $30.
    • May 27th:- 10 mins full swing practice (Driver). Moved the tee further forward in the stance, and concentrated on sliding the hips to initiate the through swing.  
    • Whether I score better riding vs. walking depends on who I am with. I have two friends who are VERY slow players and if I am in the cart with them for some reason it cost my 5 strokes a round.
    • Playing there next year. My buddy is getting married there, we have discussed this very topic and have agreed to re-tee as we will never play there again. Plus with our scores it really doesn't matter an 8 there will match a couple others on the card.
