SPEED REVIEW BEST GRIPS - MicroPerf Club Grip "Augusta Edition" Written by: Dan Mann NATURAL I had a lot of apprehension about putting these on my new gamers, I wasn't sure if the stitching or the non-tapered built up lower hand would bother me. For one thing I have small hands and often a given companies â€œstandardâ€ just doesn't work for me. Well I'm happy to say neither was an issue and really the MicroPerf's are the most natural feeling grip I've held to date. BestGrips has done a lot to make these feel like an extension of the golfer to link to the club. Now I'll admit these non-tapered grips won't be for everyone and that is why there's a variety of options on the market. But I applaud BestGrips for sticking to their vision and own personal beliefs of what a grip product should be like. Let's face it if they simply went with the popular vote what would differentiate them from everyone else? QUALITY BestGrips puts a lot of research and love into making every grip special. They have their own proprietary mold for hypoallergenic underlasts and a really expensive machine to ensure every piece of leather is rolled to a consistent thickness. Don't forget they're hand making these and sewing every stitch down in the heart of Texas. I'm shocked to not see a bit of fraying on any of the 8 grips or an extra tag or material on the end caps. The end caps show no sign of peeling or bending up either. I've seen other leather grips where the end cap is thin & stressed and sure to peel up going in and out of bags often over time. And most of all these SMELL like genuine leather. MBP's nostrils have perused a bevy of leather grips in the past & a lot of them reek of industrial glue, cheap knock off shoes and purses. BestGrips has also told me they estimate a life expectancy on these at 3-4 years. CONFIDENCE It's called ProTac people and it's a life changing experience. You think I joke, but living in a rain soaked, humid summer region of North America makes holding a golf club difficult at times. Protac simply put is â€œTackyâ€, but in a good way, not a granny doily covered couch kinda way. Man these grips are sticky and the days of wearing gloves are over for me. But do not worry, this doesn't leave any residual residues, marks or stains on your hands. Confidence like this can take one less worry out of your mind standing over the ball and I think I can speak for most when I say we'd love to think less on the course. THE WRAP NATURAL QUALITY CONFIDENCE MBP APPROVES Hey, I'll be the first to admit leather grips aren't for every golfer. Everyone has their own individual preferences and ideas of what feels right to them. But what I do know is that BestGrips makes a damn good golf grip. Are they the end all? Possibly not, but BestGrips should be high up your consideration list when you make your next grip purchase. http://bestgrips.com/product/microperf-club-grip/ *IN FOR REVIEW!

In this post, we wanted to give everyone an inside look into our handmade putter grip process. From start to finish it takes our professionally trained staff about 20-25 minutes to fully assemble each putter grip. 1. First, we begin by selecting which size grip underlist we are going to need for theorder. For this project we have chosen a midsize grip underlist. 2. Next, we select the leather pattern and color that we are going to use to make our grip. For this project we have selected a Brown Alligator leather. 3. We then cut our selected leather into the appropriate midsize pattern and punch holes along the edges to prepare for the hand stitching. 4. Next, we use a mild adhesive to secure the leather section into the proper position for the hand stitching process. 5. We then proceed to lace the leather piece together by hand using a brown stitch that matches the leather color. 6. Now that we have the hand stitching in place, we are ready to clean up the leather edges and any extra stitch by tucking the excess leather under the grip caps and trimming off any excess stitching. 7. At last, the grip is complete. It is then packaged and shipped out to the customer. The Ace of Clubs Golf Co., the exotic look without the exotic price. http://www.aceofclubsgolfco.com/blogs/news
