Just switched all my grips aside from putter to midsize MCC PLUS 4 Golf Pride grips.   (From Golf Pride m31 in irons, Lamkin 3 gen ACE in woods, and Golf Pride NDMC wedges. All standard size.)

Initial thoughts = WOW.  

I have regular sized hands, wear a medium or large glove (prefer the snugness of medium.)  

testing = two buckets at indoor golf driving range/dome

i love the feel of the grips.  Softer than I am used to.  The tackiness is perfect, (at first it thought they were too"smooth")

initial concerns went away after two minutes of practice today was able to grip lighter than ever with no issues.  The ability to grip lightly is HUGE, some of my smoothest best feeling swings occurred today. I will test on trackman to see if there is any carryover to distance. I was able to control shot shapes with ease, which was my biggest concern making the switch.  I initially thought I would be slicing everything..... Not at all.  

The only drawback = a little less feedback.  But when you hit a club on the screws it feels like you literally hit nothing (impressive, considering range balls.) they are definitely a softer feel than I am used to, but that feels better to me. I understand how people suffering from arthritis  prefer these to standard, I hit two buckets of balls (first practice session in 3 months.) and my hands feel fine.  

I literally think this may be the best decision I have ever made in regards to equipment.  I will update over the next few weeks to show trackman comparisons before and after.

They are nice grips. I have them on my wedges.

I have been replacing my grips annually for the last couple of seasons, I play most days, except winter and really liked the Golf Pride cord multi-compound grips I had put on my last set. I had to replace my clubs last year and wanted to get some use out of the new grips first but found them a little slippery in the rain and there was already wear on some. Golf Town had their annual deal so went and looked at grips. I wanted something a little tackier than what I had and also looked at Winn Dri-Tac but was told they would only last about 40 rounds and I play a lot. They also told me it would be tough to do better than the Multi compound for all around weather play. I was liking the feel of the MCC4 grip as it felt a little more comfortable in my lower hand so had them installed on my whole set. I went with std and use a M glove but have short fingers. Now I have to go find somewhere to try them out.

Just in my garage on the mat. Noticeable difference when I compare to a stock grip. I don't have to grip as tight with my lower hand. They feel good but need to play golf....next month ?

    • I’m not a big fan of that drill. It can cause your right elbow to get stuck on your side. I like this drill better and the feel that the right arm widens the backswing. Also, ‘staying connected’ doesn’t really mean that your arms should be glued to your sides. Check this thread out.  
    • Bullshit. You’re trolling. Did you poll any other native Americans or just the ones who would agree with your take? Or maybe your ‘friend’ just agreed with you because they are tired of your endless whining. Stop embarrassing yourself with your ‘silliness’.
    • I’m simply sharing the thoughts and perspective of people who’s opinions on the subject seem to be a lot more relevant than yours and mine. I’m not at all embarrassed because you disagree with them.
    • Typhoid Mary never got sick either.
    • You keep digging yourself deeper in the hole dude. I find it pathetic that a white guy from Wisconsin gets so upset about this name change. Move on and stop embarrassing yourself.
