  1. This will be my goto thread for all hat pics for this year. In case you were unaware, earlier in 2013, to add a new facet of customization to my portfolio I purchased an industrial embroidery machine. The main purpose was to open up the options for custom head covers. An unanticipated feature of the new embroidery machine was the ability to embroider hats. In the past, I would either use lids or the local embroidery shop. However, this usually set me back around $40 per hat. How ridiculous! As part of the new and improved Best Grips Custom Studio, you can now purchase customized hats for as low as $15. These can be customized in anyway you please (puffy, aplique, etc.). All I need is a logo and a general idea to start from. You can choose from a multitude of hats (the selection is always growing) and we offer over 20 embroidery colors. If there is anything you want that you don't see, just drop me an email or call and e can discuss it further. I wear a hat 3-4 days out of the week, so I am extremely particular when it comes to quality. The recent goto hat (Cool Max) as seen in aotearoabrad's thread of the year prize pack, is one of the best hats I've worked with. You can see it in charcoal below. I'm a big fan of snapbacks. They are very versatile (you can bend the bill flat bill haters, I do) and fit a wide variety of heads. You can find our growing list of offerings in the Custom Studio (here). You can also find Best Grips logo and already customized hats in the Arsenal (here).
  2. A short time ago I was approached to do a collaboration with Low Tide Custom Putters. A customer was ordering a special putter and had requested a grip from me. We decided to raise the bar and change the custom putter game forever. " data-width="466"> Post by BestGrips.com. The putter grip is a Saddle Tan Major Leaguer Pistol Putter Grip. Everything was done in house. The logoing was done via our Laser Engraver

  5. I've got a 10.5 degree Adams XTD Driver with a Red Tye Matrix Ozik shaft with a MicroPerf Club Grip and a 16 degree XTD ti Hybrid with a white Altus Hybrid shaft and also a MicroPerf Club Grip. Both clubs are off the Adams tour van. Everything is very lightly used. I haven't played a lot of golf since both showed up so there is under 10 rounds on each club. Driver - $225 shipped in the US Hybrid - $175 shipped in the US Or best offer / trade Things I am looking for: New big bertha 3 wood Covert 2.0 3 wood Bio Cell + 3 wood Ping 3 wood Any other questions or clarifications please ask away!
  6. We will be continuing the tradition from last year with our BG Green release in the Spring. Here is a pic of what is to come... The Augusta Club Grip will feature BG Green MicroPerf leather with yellow stitch. As always, the number will be severely limited, but there will be more than three sets this year!
  7. Designer Putter Grips are a niche selection of specialty leathers. The name comes from their use in the fashion industry by the big name Design Houses. Depending on the thickness you will see these types leathers in handbags, shoes, jackets, luggage and high end vehicles. You will also find these unique leathers as putter grips and putter/drivershoes at BestGrips! Designer leathers are notoriously softer than standard leathers. They come in more vibrant colors as well as unique textures. However, the trade off is the lack of ProTac (the golf grip equivalent of Captain America's Super Soldier Serum). In putter grips and, especially, headcovers, this is not a big deal (as I have always said, "I have yet to see a leather grip that is as slick as a rubber grip after 50 swings). With that said, here are the first three Designer Putter Grips joining the Tiffany Blue Putter Grip in the Designer Section (Carbon Fiber will be relocating to the Standard Putter Grip Section).
  8. The most sought after color in golf returns to BestGrips after an almost two year hiatus. This time, however, it will not be limited to just putter grips! Here it is in putter grip and Puttershoe form. Both the Pistol Putter Grip and the Puttershoe are available now for $50 and $65, respectively. The D Putter Grip and Custom Studio options will be available soon.

  12. The Count is now three. Three products from the guys over at Best grips. My first purchase was a custom fairway shoe which to this day still gets oooooooo's and ahhhhh's on the golf course. With the fairway shoe, to my surprise, “Zack” throws in a Gridiron grip. The gridiron will probably get installed this spring, I am waiting on a new wedge that I ordered to put it on. The third, a custom laser engraved Major Leaguer D putter grip which was won on the “Forum Member – Product Reviews”. I was super stoked that I won, which was short lived when I realized that I would have to replace my beloved Pistolero grip on my SC Monterey. After contemplating a couple days I decided to go for it: Installation: Without a doubt, I was going to save my SC Pistolero grip just in case I did not like the Major Leaguer. The Install was fairly simple. I usually reuse the tape but for this installation the tape was replaced with 2 inch masking tape. The grip slid on fairly well. I had to shoot a couple shots of air for the last couple of inches otherwise I ran into no problems. Install time including the removal of old tape: 4 Minutes Injecting the fatal dose into the Pistolero All Clean Done Looks This putter went from a perfect 10 in looks to a 15! The construction is flawless, I absolutely love the contrast of the stitching on the leather. The premium leather looks like what the name says “Major Leaguer”. It presents itself as if Best grips took a baseball mitt, threw it in their magical grip making machine, and out came a golf grip. The laser engraving is NUTZ! Very sharp and clean lines. The pictures serve no justice on how precise the lines are. You have to see it in person!!!!! On a side note: The design/ordering process is first class. You throw some ideas at best grips, and you come away with an amazing PERSONALIZED product in the end. Your product is not put into production until YOU are happy with the final design that Best Grips emails you. Performance This is where I “thought” that I would have a major issue. Let me start off by stating that I am a “FEEL” player. I love to feel the club head at the top of my golf swing, and with putting, I love to feel the golf ball at impact in my putting stroke. I do not know if it's the leather, construction, or magical fairy dust they use in the manufacturing, but the feel actually improved 10 fold. Conclusion
  13. With the laser engraving officially launched I would like to open up the opportunity to get some evaluation of our engraving process and see some unique designs. One lucky winner will receive a custom engraved Major Leaguer Putter Grip with the only caveat being an honest review in return. So why is the laser engraver such a big deal? BestGrips has been at the forefront of grip customization for the last few years and has decided to take another giant leap forward with the addition of laser engraving. In the past, if you wanted custom logos on a grip, a die would have to be machined for use. This process has become increasingly difficult and expensive to do. The cost of creating the die was almost 5x the price of the grip, making customizing a single grip almost unfeasible. The die was also limited in the clarity it could achieve. Because of the embossing technique you can only achieve about 60 dpi, which is not much at all. This limited the types of logos we could do to very plain basic shapes. The laser engraver allows us achieve up to 600 dpi, a 10x increase opening up all kinds of new opportunities for logoing. It also means we can create one-off grips like never before, something BestGrips takes pride in! The only drawback is that the engraving is black, making the engraving on black grips extremely subtle. Why is our engraving different? BestGrips is all about doing everything in house. When we added embroidery to our stable of custom options, we added an embroidery machine, not a contact that could do embroidery. This keeps prices down, options endless, and turnaround quick! The same applies for the laser engraving. BestGrips laser engraves everything in-house, keeping the price low, eliminating digitizing fees, and making turnaround insanely fast! So how do you become a tester? Requirements: Resident of the United States or Canada MyGolfSpy Forum member of good standing Must be able to make complete sentences with detail Must be able to review the custom laser engraving and provide a review of the product Answer these four questions Handicap? Putter stroke arc? Can you take quality pictures? (please provide proof - 1 pic will do) What does customization mean to you? I will select one tester from the entries and will ship the custom putter grip on December 16th (entries close DECEMBER 9th at 11:00 PM CST).
  14. Happy New Year and welcome to What's New at BestGrips: 2014 Edition. Our first bit of big news is the launch of the new website, BestGrips.com, and the subsequent official opening of the Custom Studio. Take a look around the site and if you see any issues, feel free to contact me. The site will see the rest of the upgrades in the coming weeks, so stay tuned. Once again, Happy New Year!
  15. If you follow BestGrips on facebook and twitter, you are aware that we have been looking for a decent golf bag for sometime. Most of the options out there are extremely expensive and are not made to last. A few months of research led me to Club Glove, which I firmly believe is neither cheaply made or outrageously priced. With that said, BestGrips is evaluating customized bags for the 2014 season. You would pick the color of the Club Glove bag, and BestGrips will customize the three panels with embroidery, or leather/exotic inlay. The option will be the FCO III Cart bag and possibly the Billboard Bag. I like the color options offered by Club Glove, especially the use of black as the base color (never, never, never get a white bag!). As with all things BestGrips, the bags will be priced insanely competitive. All of the services (including golf grips) we offer are priced below market because the internet means no middle men and consequently no middle man or distributor fees. Look for more info sometime in Q1 or Q2 of next year (if extremely interested, contact me direct).
  16. Let me get straight to the point. 3 extremely big things are coming to BestGrips in the next 6 weeks. They range from kinda neat, to really cool, and finally game changing. For the last month and a half I have been diligently working on the game changer and not much else. Unfortunately, this has caused an undesired absence from my online presence. This will be paid off in large dividends in the future. The first thing will be unveiled in the next 2 weeks. It's the really cool secret that I can't talk about. I get asked about this all the time and I'm really excited to finally have an answer that I've never been able to provide. The second thing that's kinda neat is the final launch of the new website. I know, you've probably heard me say this several times, but the snowball is tumbling down the mountain and picking up speed. The website will be live in 2-4 weeks. YAY!!!! It's going to be super sleek and ultra-modern (just like our grips!). The final thing is the game changer. Can't talk about it at all, so don't ask any questions. It's a game changer, it's coming in less than 6 weeks, and I'm ecstatic about it! While I'm sad that I haven't been around in my usual capacity I am not at all sorry. BestGrips just had two record breaking months in a row and I am the busiest I've ever been. I've always said that it is easy to succeed when you are selling a superior product, however, we could not achieve the growth we've had, without the incredible support from customers and fans. I assure you that we will continue to make it easy to choose BestGrips, the best grips and headcovers in golf! Albert P.S. - What to take away from this: 3 things coming in 6 weeks that range from kinda neat, and really cool, to game changing BOOM! We just had two record breaking months in a row Couldn't do it without our fans and customers Play lots of golf because... winter is coming
  17. Puttershoes at Bestgrips are 50% off right now. This includes the standard, designer, and patchwork puttershoes. If you've been thinking about getting one for your putter now would be a good time to do it.
  18. BestGrips prides itself on being one of the last companies that actually makes its own products. Too many companies have become "re-marketers," moving production to countries with cheap labor. It's bad business that creates more problems than it alleviates! While making your own products has many benefits, my favorite is making onsie and twosies like this... This is a proto-Puttershoe dubbed the Putterboot. It's specifically designed for putters with long, or unorthodox, necks. Because of the longer flap, it also fits in the bag better. The luxurious leather is a new for 2014 option called Vermont Maple.
  19. I've been a big fan of poker chip ball markers since my first trip to a casino. They are easy to find on the green, the perfect size, and easy to find "personalized" options. They are also really great mementos to give out after rounds! BestGrips has carried some made by http://logogolfchips.com for a few years now. We started out with red, black, and blue, then added yellow, then cut blue and yellow for orange, and now we will soon have black, turquoise, orange/blue, pink and green. Look for the new colors to be available on the website in time for Christmas (at a new price) and as always double check your orders (we love to throw in hats, ball markers, towels, and belt buckles)! P.S. - We still have a few reds and orange/whites left.
  20. Only a few of the older Standard Puttershoes are left! We are down to Gridirons and Black Classic Puttershoes. To finish them off and make room for the new ones, these last remaining ones will be $25 while supplies last! http://bestgrips.com/standardputtershoes
