  2. What is Genuine Leather? We all see it everyday, a company claims that it only uses "genuine leather" in the manufacturing process of their goods. Of we notice the stamp on our leather goods that state that the item is genuine leather, top-grain leather, or full-grain leather. But what do these stampings actually mean? And is there that a difference between the quality of each leather type. Whether you're buying a golf club head covers, a scorecard holder, or belt, you should know exactly what to look for in your leather: FULL GRAIN LEATHER Considered the most durable, expensive and highest quality grade of real leather is Full Grain. Full Grain is the top layer of the hide, and the only layer to posses the grain appearance. TOP GRAIN LEATHER The second highest quality grade of leather is Top Grain. Top Grain has been split from the top layer of blemished hide, sanded and refinished. Sanding is a common process that tanners use to rid the hide of scars, scrapes and imperfections. GENUINE LEATHER The third highest quality grade is Genuine Leather. Genuine Leather is produced from the layers of hide that remain after the top is split off for the better grades. The surface is usually refinished to resemble a higher grade leather. BONDED LEATHER The fourth quality grade of leather is Bonded. Bonded is referred to as such because it is made from the dust and shavings of other hide layers. These remnants are then collected, glued and pressed together to form a single piece of hide. The hide is then sanded, refinished and often times painted to resemble a piece higher grade leather. But no matter what quality grade, you can be certain that any item made with real leather is made from the hide of an animal, and will produce a durable and long lasting item. Now it's no secret that OEM manufactures in the golf industry almost exclusively use synthetic leather for their golf clubs headcovers, and other "leather" items. The reason for this is purely economical. Synthetic leather is much less expensive than real leather. However, this results in sub-par quality items. SYNTHETIC LEATHER Synthetic Leather is an artificial (man-made) leather. While this leather type may appear to look and feel like real leather, synthetic leather is of much lower quality than real leather. However, it is often used as a substitute for real leather because it is less expensive: POLYURETHANE "PU" LEATHER Polyurethane Leather is made by coating a backing fabric such as cotton, polyester or shredded leather with a flexible polymer and then treating it to look more like animal hide. Polyurethane upholstery is the most realistic imitation of genuine leather, with respect to look and feel. VINYL LEATHER Vinyl upholstery is made from two separate synthetic materials. The fibers of the upholstery are constructed from strong polyester fibers. The fibers are then coated with vinyl, and then melted onto the surface of the fibers, sealing them closed and making a virtually waterproof surface that is still flexible and tough. CONCLUSION Regardless of what material quality is claimed by the manufacturer, or stamped on the item, we hope that this article has provided you with some facts that will make you a better informed consumer. Or, the very least, be better equipped for your next leather purchase. CLICK HERE to view the original article.

  6. 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

  8. 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
