Hello!

I'm looking to change from standard size grip to midsize. I have played NDMC for a few years now and i think they are alright/good.
I looked around on a few forums and found that people liked the crosslines and i thought about giving them a go. The thing is i also read that the new crosslines isn't as good as the old ones?
I'm afraid that the good things i have read about the crossline only applies to the old crossline.

I'm also looking at some MC PLATINUM which looks good but i'm not sure they are worth twice the crossline.

These are the two i'm considering:

Lamkin crossline or MC platinum

Which ones would you go for?

Thanks in advance.

I've been using mid-sized grips since the late 20th century.  When Avon stopped making the X-Air, I switched over to Golf Pride Tour Velvet.  They are durable, inexpensive, and can stand a good scrub.  They are also fairly light.  I did put a CP-2 on my hybrid and I like it a lot...just not enough to swap out the others.

I had the Lamkin midsize crosslines on my previous set of clubs. I installed them about 2.5 years ago, looked just like the ones in your link. Not sure if there was a compound difference between several years ago and 2017. My take...

they wore well, 2-3x a week play plus practice.

felt secure, even when wet with rain gloves on

I use the GP MCs in midsize throughout my bag, but a few times I've gotten Lamkin Crosslines installed stock on a few clubs and I was impressed. They were very cord-ish for not having cord. I can't speak to any recent changes they made though.

I think I'd go with the MCs, but you'll have to weigh how much the cost means to you.

If you already like the GPMC's, why risk a fairly expensive mistake in the hope that the grass might be greener.

Change simply for the sake of change...?

    • 9 hole Best-ball round with our church men's group (mostly retirees who are not serious about golf in terms of who is better), so this was a "What'd We Shoot Today" score of even par.  Anyway the team I was on ranged in age literally from 5 to 85 (well maybe 82, but 85 rounds out better).  This included my grandson, his first time dealing with best ball format.  All contributed shots that we played from, which was good.  For me it was the opposite of yesterday's round - big stick was inconsistent and putting was all near misses, iron play was typical for me.  Did manage to stick some good approaches on the green.  Now to have such a round without the help from my friends from 5 to 85.  
    • Might be slow, but I'm sorta liking these guys...
    • Slow play is not keeping up with the group in front, unless its a group of really fast players.   The question is how to remedy it.  I play with guys who shoot high 70’s low 80’s whose pre-shot routines are intermidable.  In addition they are elderly and just move slow.  So as the young-un in the group I rush, especially on the green.  They play from the correct tees, it just takes them forever to go thru their routine.   Yesterday I played as a single.  Arrived at the course at 3 and was told to be off before 5 due to league play. I finished in 92 mins and played thru two other groups.  My goal is to not 3 putt and no 7’s on the card.  Shot 85. High scores does not automatically mean slow play.  
    • Day 63, July 27, 2021: Three-quarter swing work again today, hey I may lose a little bit of distance, but I know where the ball is going. Rinse, Repeat, keep working on it kind of deal. I’m having small successes with the 3/4 swing so something must be working.
    • Day 153.  Before grocery shopping, I stopped at a putting green and worked for half an hour on 3' and 30' putts.  The end of the 3' practice included taking 17 shots to finish all 12 for my clock drill (not great, but not as bad as a month ago) and the 30' finished with my final six putts from 30' (due to this green, they weren't significantly different on the clockface, so I'm still getting a similar read, but I know better than to assume it.  And of course, I had to hit them the right speed) with a total of 11 strokes (five 2-putts and I also sank one). After lunch and before gym, I did the quarantine days 9 (again, with feedback from yesterday) + 10 (which took a while to get right... I'm not even sure I got it right, video to show up later today). Addendum:  I haven't figured out my trigger for the day 10 practice plan.  That's going to take me a bit more thought
