Ongoing search for my new grip

Ongoing search for my new grip

  •  

    Ive been trying to find what will become MY grip. Im not sure what Im looking for, but I wont stop till I find the one. I had always just used whatever came with the clubs until last year. I am somewhat linited to the fact that I need midsize. My first attempt in the search was the Winn hybrids and I hated, possibly even despised them. My next set was Lamkin Crossline Cords. I liked them at first till the cord started to chew up my hands a bit too much. So I decided to stop buying sets and start buying one grip at a time until I find it. I started this year with the Golf Pride Tour Wrap 2G and I liked it but theres something about it that I cant put my finger on. Today I purchased a Lamkin Performance Plus 3Gen. I havent hit with it, but I love the way it feels so far. Has anyone gone through this much to find their grips?

    Not really.  I just love the GP Multi-Compound Decades.   So when I decide on shafts they must coordinate with the grip colors!  LOL

    I can't say that I have searched that hard for the grip I want to use. The Golf Pride New Decade are the ones I use, and yes they can be a bit tought on the hands, but you get used to it.

    What is more important to me is that they are not worn and smooth. I tend to replace them as often as every three weeks!

    I've only used GP and have now used the Decade Multicompound.  Excellent grip in all types of weather especially when it gets very humid.  Highly recommend you trying them.  I had a PGA Professional tell me to try grips on one or two clubs to get a feel without doing the entire set which will save you some money.

    I'm now using the GP New Decades.... In the "search for the perfect grip" I've changed a couple times per year.... Yes, it is a tough choice.

    me too, love em!

    My problem with the GP Decades is they seem to get hard too quickly and at $8.00 a pop, I cant afford to replace them often enough. Im looking for something that will either stay softer longer or is cheap enough that I can replace them as often as necessary

    I'm one of the GP multi-compound lovers.  Switched to them a couple years ago and I love them, great grips.  They won't chew up your hands like you've experienced and they have great longevity.  I would suggest giving them a shot.

  •  

    I've gone with the GP Multi-Compound also.  Something about the Orange I can get on the Grip.  Although I'm going with the Pink one on the new driver.

    I've fooled with grips for a long time, and now finally have the majority of my clubs with Golf Pride New Decade. Best grip I have ever used and my thanks go to 19thhole and Kelly for the tip on using these grips.

    The tour wrap 2g's are tacky and surprisingly soft... the multi compounds are solid...the lamkin 3gen's are ok... here are a couple alternatives... lamkin crossline cords, iomic sticky, golfpride v-55 cords.... awesome!!!

    I have the crossline cords now and they are tearing up my right hand. The 2Gs just dont feel right. The Iomics are too expensive. As for the V-55s, I know this is not a good reason, but the arrow / thumb alignment aid is just too phallic looking to me, I could never use them. I am liking the 3gens so far, just need to go hit it.

    During the early summer I go to GP's Tour Velvet BCT Cord  I went red last year.  My hands sweat a lot in the summer so I love the cords.  My driver has a GP New Decade Multicompound - I like this one too and it comes in mid-size.  Only issue I hear on these grips if you don't take great care of them, the rubber gets slippery.   

    I used to be a mid-size grip user.  I wear XL/XL cadet gloves.  The issue I found was I was fading the ball too much.  Common problem with people who change to mid-size.  I found a regular grip with 2-3 rolls of tape underneath does the job.  I go to two when I want to start drawing the ball.

    I already add a couple layers of tape to the midsize. Thats why I cant do standard + tape, that would end up being about 11 layers of tape to get where I need it

    I'm using WINN mid-size right now. What would be the difference if I use standard +2 tape wraps ??? would that be the same as a mid-size or a bit smaller. The standard seems too small and the mid-size a bit big so how could I split the difference ???
