Winn Dri-Tac Grips

Recommended Posts

So, yesterday I had my driver and 3 wood re gripped with the Winn Dri-Tac oversized grips. I had the GolfPride multi compound standard size on them before, what a difference. These grips are Soft, and they almost mold to my hands . Also my hands sweat a bunch, these grips stayed dry, and my hands didn't slip at all. I think I'm gonna have all my clubs regripped with the Winn Dri-Tac grips.

Any of you guys use these grips, and if so, how do you like them, or not like them..?

I had them put on all of my clubs last year and I think they feel amazing your hand. I had to replace the one on my driver, but that was after a lot of use. I will be using these grip for a while and I'm very happy with them.

I've had them on a set of clubs and I will never use them again. They wear out ridiculously fast. PURE grips ftw.

I agree EJ but how much in the scheme of things is re-gripping your clubs? I play $29 for a dozen balls(which don't last me very long), $40-$60 a round, plus another $20-$40 for libations on the course.

I have a few friends with these grips and they are noticeably different than all grips I've ever had.  Very soft and "cushy".  I could actually see myself being able to play without a glove if I had these grips.

On the other hand, I have Pures on my clubs and looooove them.  A close second are my GP Niions, which will go back on my clubs whenever the Pures wear out (if they ever do) ... or when I'm feeling goofy because the Niions are bright orange. :)

So some of you guys are saying they wear out fast, could someone give me an idea just how fast they do wear out..?

Its hard to say but my driver lasted about a year with quite a bit of use. All of my other clubs are still pretty good my gap wedge is the most worn but, I always warm up with it and use it a lot to chip

Well, it's not the kind of thing you notice until you feel a new grip again. For me, I noticed wear within a month. I think it's because the Winns have so much other non-rubber ingredients that they are prone to wear out.

Unless you play constantly they last way more than a month. Even a little wore they are stickier than most rubber grips and still feel soft.

I was using Winn-Lites and they were showing considerable wear by the end of my season which was around 40 rounds. I also practice a fair bit. My main practice and drill iron is my 6 iron and it's pretty shot, especially where my trail thumb rests. They do feel great with no glove though.

Are they the same compound as the Dri-Tac's..?

I use them on everything but my driver and my putter. Nice soft feel, and I have much better grip pressure now.

A clubsmith I know suggested squeezing the Winn Dri-Tacs right at address, and then relaxing, as a substitute for the forward press.

Thanks WUTiger...I'll try that.

I'm going to go on record saying that PURE grips are the exception.

I agree.

I also hate Winn grips. But I guess they're good if you like replacing them every month. :)

What do you recommend Erik. I know you have probably used many more grips than most of us and hit more balls than most of us also. Id like to hear what you think is the best combination of durability and feel.

    • What has changed? The length-lie dependency has been removed by changing color code bands to an “S-shape”. Each color code has a fixed lie angle irrespective of club length. This removes the need for converting color codes when using non-standard-length clubs with the AFS system. Color codes have moved to 1° increments to simplify lie-angle offerings. Yellow and Purple color codes have been removed. Updated length recommendations better align static recommendations with dynamic fitting results. Height columns are now scaled for easier use and overlaps are removed. How is it more precise? By analyzing over 20,000 fittings from our nFlight database, combined with years of research, we have made data-driven changes to better align static and dynamic fittings, particularly with respect to players’ length recommendations. 75% of players will fit to a dynamic color code within one of the new static recommendation compared to 70% previously, while 95% will fit within two color codes compared to 90% on the previous color code system. How is it simpler? Removing the length-lie dependency eliminates the need to convert color codes when building AFS heads at over/under standard length. It also removes the need to convert back when ordering clubs at over/under standard length after a fitting using our AFS system. Removing height overlaps and scaling eliminates ambiguity. Plotting height and wrist-to-floor measurements for a static recommendation is more intuitive.
    • I get down to the Phoenix are 3 or 4 times a year and golf everytime.   it all really depends on what time of year you go.  If its summer, you can get on anywhere for a decent price.  If it's winter you've got to look around to find something decent and affordable.   without regard to price, my favorites are:  Greyhawk (both courses equally)
      Wi-ko-pa (both courses equally)
      Troon North (monument)
      Gold Canyon (Dinosaur).  --to be fair though, the greens at Gold Canyon are not in the same shape as the others, but it is cheaper---
      Ak-Chin Southern Dunes I don't hate TPC, but I probably wouldn't play it again.  too many better courses for similar price down there.     If I go in peak season, I like Longbow in Mesa, for an affordable course. 
         
    • I agree with this. A "quiet end" of the driving range would be great for me. When I was in college I never could understand those people who could watch TV and do homework, or listen to music while they study.. I always needed to be in the quiet part of the library to get anything done.   
    • You can get something in the middle, a little forgiveness, a little playability. Something like the Titleist AP3 or the Ping i-series, or even the Callaway Epic. You don't have to go straight blade to get some playability.
    • I voted one, but I am not really sure it's  even a swing thought. My final thought is I want the ball to land in a chosen area, out there. Those landing areas get smaller the closer I get to the hole.  Once I pick a landing area, I just walk up, set up, swing, and hit the ball. This is pretty much the same scenario when I practice. I just swing the club with out thinking about it. I either hit a decent shot, or I don't. No big deal. Once it's done, unless it's really great shot, it's forgotten about, and I am on to the next shot.
