Re-gripping my driver, any thoughts on which grip?

14 posts in this topic

I bought a pre-owned driver I need to get gripped.  I know it is all personal preference, but is one grip/type of grip better than another?

Pure grip pro. They have a nice soft feel for a rubber grip. They also have a lot of colors to choose from. They are as tacky as any grip on the market.

Try the secret grip if you like a back weighted grip.

Call me boring, but I use Lamkin Crossline on almost everything--I just like the feel.

I have played the Niions. Orange were bright but a good feel to them. The VDR reds were my favorite. Too bad all the retail shops by me stopped carrying them.

If you have sweaty hands when it's humid, you can't top the Golf Pride New Decade multi-compound.  It lasts a long time too.  I have had twice the life as compared to the Golf Pride Tour Velvet, which is a standard non-chord grip.  I clean it with rubbing alcohol and it feels like new.

I'll second this. These are awesome grips. And if you don't mind blue, you can get 13 grips and the air compressor gun on Amazon right now for $6.49. Crazy, stupid cheap. I bought the kit in black a in March and paid $46, which itself it a helluva bargain. But $6.50 for 13 grips and the gun.....how can you not pick that deal up.

BTW, the rest of the colors are all $70+. For some reason the blue rips are way discounted.

I always did the Lamkin X10, but I decided to upgrade and try the expensive Golf Pride New Decade Multicompound Midsize grip and I like it. I want to do all my irons now (still have the stock grip), but I am hesitant to spend $140 on grips...

    • Your swing looks great. You got a lot of time in on it and it shows. What was your handicap when you started? If I am lucky I play once a week and then practice 2-3 at the max with some at home practice.
    • I think a putter fitting is very important. For two things: Aim. Most people can't aim the putter(s) they own. Distance. The weight distribution in the putter greatly affects how well you can hit putts the proper distance.
    • Thanks, interesting, and not surprising. The marketing myths in golf equipment aren't unlike so many consumer products, yet I fall for some of them. Kind makes me wonder why so many folks here stress how important a putter fitting is. I know what length feels comfortable, I can see if the lie is reasonable and I can decide for myself if a putter looks, feels and putts "right" to me. For now I'm going to see if more practice cures my inconsistencies with my old putter.
    • My experience says no but I suppose some change in mechanics could bring about more distance. The major component is your athletic ability. For example, I started playing and hitting my PW 100 yards. I purchased new irons and was up to 130. Again I purchased new irons and and the PW is 140. My swing and lag has progressed considerably since I started but I am very athletic and aware of my biomechanics and body position. Unless you are making swing changes, or don't understand where your power is generated, you will not gain much distance.
    • I'm glad you're enjoying golf Joe, but how could a Scot not? Oh! I thought that was so clever! Distance comes with clubhead speed and solid contact. Both must work together to produce the desired result. If I had my "druthers" (an American idiom as far as I know), I would prefer solid contact over pure clubhead speed. I see plenty of guys who can swing the club amazingly hard, and hit the ball a long way, but have no idea where it will end up. Centered contact will allow you to maximize the distance of your swing speed and have some idea where the ball is going. As your swing become more "grooved" you may be able to increase your speed and hit the ball farther. I'd suggest you learn the game with the equipment you have. Absolutely nothing wrong with Dynamic Gold R300 shafts. On the PGA Tour, J.B. Holmes plays Dynamic Gold S400 shafts in his irons. And he's a Tour Pro! If you don't have a clubfitter or coach to work with, I'd tell you to resist falling into the trap of "buying a better swing"! Meaning buying more and (maybe) better equipment hoping to shave a few strokes!
