BEST GRIPS - MicroPerf Club Grip "Augusta Edition"

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 “standard” 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 “Tacky”, 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

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.

I took a pass on these last year and opted for the BG Tan.  I was not sure how they would look.  Yes, I have made stupid mistakes before, and probably will again.  These look really good.

Even better in person. Weird thing is I get nothing when I Google green cows.

I have one Augusta grip which was the last one from last year.  It's great but not a microperf. The microperfs are incredible. I have them on the rest of my set in black with purple stitching and a Major Leaguer on my putter.  The quality of the leather, the stitching and the underlast on all of Bestgrips grips is the best of the best. There are some imitators with inferior materials.  But they don't come close to matching Bestgrips. They're not even in the same league.
