Ok yes I know there are thousands or these forums but I need quick help. I need new grips on my irons. They currently have the stock lamkin cobra ones. I really don't like them. Ok so here's what I need... Not too hard and firm like the new decades, good for sweaty hands, preferably multiple colors Iv tried many different grips and still haven't found "the one"

IMO Pure Grips are the best out there. Lots of colors to choose from and you get a year durability guarantee. I used Golf Pride tour velvets and switched to the Pure Pro firm. Pure Pros are softer than the New Decades but not soft like a Winn grip.

I regripped my clubs late last year with the Golf Pride VDR grips and liked them a lot. Might be worth exploring if you haven't already as I think they would fit your criteria (my opinion). http://www.golfpride.com/grips/vdr/ Before the end of the season, I purchased a set of new-to-me irons that had been recently gripped with the New Decades and I have to say that I really like them (I should at $10 a pop). I had never been a fan of the corded grips but there's something about these that I like. I, too, deal with sweaty hands but haven't had a problem with the NDs. As they say, your mileage may vary. Good luck with your search - so many options to consider.

I second this!  I have Pure Pros as well.  The dark blue ones in these pictures are mine.  And I don't even mean just the same style as mine, but those are my ACTUAL grips.  :)  The light blue ones are on my wifes clubs.  And you can see by the date of those posts that mine are coming up on one year old right now.  I play about 25-30 times a year and practice about twice a week.  They are showing no signs of wear EXCEPT for the white stripes on a few of them have come partially off.  Functionally, they are still like new.  All I do is wipe them down before each shot.

If you want the old fashioned tape/solvent/somebody-else-install-them-for-me kind, then I would recommend Golf Pride Niions as well.  Here's a review I did last year: http://thesandtrap.com/products/golf-pride-niion-grip/reviews/4743 Not as many color choices as Pure, but they're not boring.  :)

Yeah, I almost went with VDRs this year, really like the tackiness. In the end I went with Lamkin Crosslines on my irons (really like the old school look with the white highlights) and put Pure Pros on my woods and hybrids. I'm a virgin to Pure Pros but they feel awesome, too bad I hit my woods like shit.

I would really recommend the Winn Drytac grips. They honestly feel like a dream.

What grips are the most like the Pure Grip Pro's? The golfsmith near me doesn't have any on site.  Id like to see them and at least see how they feel before I purchase a whole set of them.  Id also like to know which grips is close to the P2 as well. Im currently gaming the Dritac which I like but they don't last all that long.

I'm not familiar with all of the different choices, but I can say that Golf Pride Niions aren't that different from the Pure Pros.  They're both simple, all rubber, fairly firm grips.

Thank you golfingdad. How do you feel they have held up?

I don't have an answer for that.  I had the Pures prior to getting the Niions for review, and only used them for a couple of weeks for the review, then put the Pures back on.  Since the Pures haven't worn out yet, I haven't had an excuse to put the Niions back on.  So they're just waiting patiently in the garage for their turn. :)

Yeah I agree with that. Pure Pros are similar to the Niions, Golf Pride Tour Velvets or Lamkin Crossline.

Do the white pure grips stay white or do they discolor?

I have the green ones and I don't have any issues keeping them clean. Had other colored grips before and couldn't keep them "spot" free, even though I cleaned them after every round/practice session.

I really like the Golf Pride New Decade MCs but you've already said that they don't work for you so I guess that doesn't help much. :smartass:

I find the standard Golf Pride Tour Velvets to have a softer feel and they can be found for a bargain (around $4.00 a grip). The Golf Pride Tour Wraps are even softer than the Tour Velvets but I don't know how they are durability-wise and I think they may get slippery in wet/sweaty conditions.

I would say go for the standard Tour Velvets. The Winn DriTac feel pretty soft as well. I don't have any experience with Pure grips, however, a lot of very knowledgeable folks on this forum sing their praises so I am sure they are a good option as well.

    • I started playing 3-4 months ago, having never been on a course of touched a golf club. I am really loving the game, but frustrated with my progress. On my little 9-hole course (2100 yards) I have gone from 82 to 63, but on my proper 9-hole (3200 yds) I am stuck at 75-80. I play 3 times a week (except some breaks when I travel for work), and take lessons. I can’t practice much more as the range seems to be contributing to various injuries. My technique is definitely improving, having more control around the green and at double/triple bogey on par 3s. My main issue seems to be getting to the green on par 4 and 5 where I often spend 6-7 strokes just getting there. My tee shots are inconsistent and max 120 yds, and even though I rarely shoot OB I often just shoot 50 yds ahead.  Looking at this forum, most people seem to struggle with the 100 to 120, so it is really discouraging to be at 160 (I count everything!). Did anyone start so badly, and was there a point in which things started coming together? Please share! At this point I still enjoy myself, but it’s starting to be demotivating. 
    • Brilliant info, I hadn't thought of that... Ha ha I'm afraid it does get very windy and wet here in Winter and I found that the hybrids were launching a little high and just wanted an iron that would keep it down a bit. I figured that the 24* driving iron with the bit of extra cavity/help in the back would be a solid option and then go from 5-PW with my set.   I think the shims work well ( from what I googled ) once the prep work is done correctly on the adapter and all parts are sanded to help better contact for the epoxy so should be good to go. Thank you @WUTiger appreciate the info
    • Not for me. If i duff my last few balls its just a case of "well they didnt go as planned, not a problem". I didnt used to be like that. I'd bring old balls with me so i could finish on a good shot but i feel, for me, doing that doesnt benefit me. Its a personnal kind of thing. If i've had a really good session then a few bad shots isnt the end of the world. I generally finish with pitches so there is less chance of finishing with a duff but if i do then its no biggie. Best to make the mistakes  in dress rehersal than on the night. I do agree with not going to bed angry though, never good.

    • That is not evidence of a conspiracy.  You can suspect collusion if you want, but there is absolutely no proof that anyone conspired to anything.  What little evidence that suspicion provides is completely circumstantial, and you can't provide a motive for such a conspiracy.   You may be right that there is a tacit conspiracy, but that would be very hard to prove to the point of meting out any punishment.  Suspicion and supposition certainly wouldn't convict anyone in a court of law, and I feel that you have to hold it to at least that high a standard.
