Pure DTX grips

Recommended Posts

I just installed my set of red Pure DTX grips. I had the P2 Wraps before and liked them. I hit a club with a DTX on it and really liked them. I ordered a set of red ones and put them on today. I am playing 36 holes on Monday so I will definitely have some better thoughts on them after that. I will report back Monday. Anybody else have or have tried the DTXs? Any opinions you want to share?

I had a dtx on my 4 iron just to try and honestly hated it. To me was un comfturble and very slippery. Hope it is better to you!

DTX are my favorite grips for irons and wedges.  I don't know why @jackieMoon thought they were slippery because that has not been my experience at all.

Ya I don't know what it was. Surprised me

I'm a HUGE fan of Pure Grips and have used them for years (Pure Pro).  I tried the DTX, and like jackieMoon, I for some reason found them slick.  And before Pure Grips I as a corded grip user.  I was very shocked.  Put I put the DTX grips on a buddy's clubs and he absolutely loves them.  Look exactly like the OP's.

Still couldn't get me to use another brand of grips, that's for sure.

Hmmm. Conflicting opinions here. I have Pure Pros on my woods and like them but do feel them to be a bit to slick when wet or when I'm in sweaty pig mode, which inevitably cause me to re-grip at the top and hit a crap shot. I was planning to try out the DTX but now I'm confused by these comments. I currently use Crosslines on my irons and like them in all weather.

I definitely understand the "sweaty pig mode", especially if I'm at the range on a nice hot and humid day.  Which to be fair, is exactly the set of circumstances in which I tried out the DTX.  Hot, humid, sweaty and at the range...so it probably wasn't a fair test.  My friend who has the DTX is a "sweater" (big time) and he loves them.  I think it's just one of those personal preference things.  I'll admit I'm not a huge fan of change so if it wasn't my Pure Pro's it was already an uphill battle.  :)

Thanks for the background. I might go full cords next time around. Slippery grips have hurt my scores on more than on occasion.

Before I found out about Pure Grips, I was a full cord user.  As much as I play and as much as I'm at the range, they just ripped up my hands too bad.  Keys for me are to make sure I clean my grips regularly (again, I use Pure Pros) to keep the oils/sweat off and if it's hot and humid and my hands are in sweaty pig mode (which really happens most at the range) I keep cold water with me.  Pour some water on your hands...sweaty hands fixed.

I have now played 36 holes with them and hit about 200 range balls with them, and I love them. They feel great, and give just the perfect amount of feedback without giving too much. I understand what you guys are talking about with the sweaty hands. If im playing, I just make sure to wipe off my hands before each shot and the grips work perfectly.

If u have sweaty hands I found the winn dri tac midsize or standard grips to be great, I have them on my driver, faiway wood, ping Eye 2 2 iron driving iron,


The problem I have with winn grips is that they are terrible in the rain. I have not found a single winn grip to hold up with a lot of moisture

I just got the Pure DTX.  I have sweaty hands in the summer.  I will put them on a couple of clubs and write a review.  I currently use Golf Pride New Decade Multi-compound, which I feel are the best for wet conditions and sweaty hands.

One cleaning tip:  Use isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol found at drug stores) and a rag to clean your grips.  It dries quickly, removes all the grime and restores the tack in most grips.

I'm looking forward to your review. I'm seriously considering the DTX but the feedback in this thread is a little confusing. I've considered NDMC but, dang, they're expensive! Depending on your DTX review I may just keep going with my beloved Lamkin Crosslines.

    • Should there be a poll where you can select more than one? At times, the driver gets me trouble and 3W sometimes ends in a super thin shot, but they still feel "comfortable" to swing. My longest iron is the hardest with the second longest being a close second so 5i and 4i. Luckily, I rarely ever need to use them, and if I do, I get these really low screaming shots on the course. Even on the range, these two clubs are like a hit it once, hate the shot, then pick another club to hit.
    • Rick, there's plenty of evidence. Players have stood by greenside for a few years now while their fellow competitors play shots to the hole and they have plenty of time to go mark. In fact, since a fellow competitor has to wait, you don't even have to be right there - you just have to reasonably believe there is a chance the ball could assist the play of a fellow competitor. The evidence is not non-existent, and it is growing.
    • In my experience, the people that do it wrong often falls into two categories. Those that don't know how to do it and those that don't care. The first category we will probably find everywhere. The second might depend on the country, area, general state of the course, what kind of people that play it. Many that I've played with didn't know how to do it properly. They might have learned it at a course once and that information might have been wrong. Or they just do what a lot of others do. They're typically happy if they level out the spot, without regards to how they did it. From my experience, people don't want to treat the course bad and most thank me when I explain how to do it properly. Some might thank me and not care the next round they play, but that's tough to do anything about. My advice is to tell everyone you see do it wrong. Give them a demonstration and explanation of why it should be done this way. It can also help to reach out to the clubs and make them throw up some posters, roll the proper way to do it on screens in the club house. I once played on a course where they asked everyone that showed up to play how to fix the marks. Before letting them out to play, the players had to give a small demonstration. This can be a great way to reach out to a lot of players, but make sure it's done in a positive way. Some can fussy if they take it as a personal insult that you don't think they know how to repair the marks. You find most golfers on the golf course. A very small percentage visit a golf forum.
    • My 60° Vokey wedge is black. It's black because, well, it's the only lob wedge we had in stock at that time. I don't like it or dislike it any more than any other wedge, although I can find it easily in my bag.
