Winn Dri-Tac Grips

27 posts in this topic

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 think Winn grips feel really nice but they wear out very fast!

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.

    • Video tape yourself making a slow backswing  to the length you want and hold the position. Make a mental note of what it feels like. Then try to make a swing and make a mental note of what the swing felt like, how much turn, how much did the arms move. Then check the video. See if you hit your the swing length you want. If not then do the slow swings again, hold the position you want. Then make another swing but this time try to shorten it up. If need to, swing like 50% backswing turn rates. Check the video, how closer were you? Keep doing it till you get the swing where you want it.  This is what I do to try to teach myself to swing shorter. It will take some time, but it gets easier over time. For me, my driver is a between A2-A3 swing length feel that gets me A4. 
    • I nit pick a lot.  I'm smarter than the average voter. I actually read the voter pamphlet. I study the issues in the campaign and research the candidates. There's a lot of propaganda out there. For Trump, where's the beef? Trump steaks? I don't see any beef. I just see a lot of hot air.  I'd still like to know how he's going to kick 11 million people out of the country without having a secret police force. It'll involve racial profiling and people will have to make sure they have their papers in order. They may even be citizens but still get caught up in the sweep because they don't have their papers in order. Does everyone have their papers in order? Plus who is going to pick next season's crops? I know that's stereotyping but still.  His statement on immigration... all countries have shown themselves to be vulnerable. So... no more immigration? We're a nation of immigrants. Tariffs worked really well for Herbert Hoover.  Hillary is no saint. That's a given. But damn.  
    • Steve Stricker is grouped with David Toms and Rich Beem. How many fans can correctly identify who isn't the past champion in that threesome?
    • Since it's law in Virginia that a Governor can only serve on term in office at a time it makes it difficult to gauge their time there. During his time as Governor the state of Virginia was one of three states to earn the highest grade in terms of management in a report by the non-partisan Pew Center on the States. Also, Virginia took first place each year from 2006 to 2009 in the "Best States For Business" rankings published by Forbes magazine. I think he's a good pick as VP. Virginia has gone Democrat the last two elections.  For his term in the Senate he's got a very good relationship in working with both Democrats and Republicans.   
    • Don't you think deporting 11 million (or whatever the figure is) undocumented/illegal immigrants will take a pretty big government? How about building a giant border wall? Or the 35% tariff he would impose? Oh, and don't forget he promised not to touch entitlements.
