One of those "Why the hell didn't I think of that moments?!" Pretty cool unless you are trying to save some weight on that end. Just guessing it may be a bit heavier than say a SuperStroke grip.

My grips are already interchangeable, although I do need an air compressor to do it.

 

Very cool concept, will be interesting to see how it pans out. I could see this being very useful as a fitting tool

Yep! Last year over a three month period, I put one Pure grip on 5 different clubs just try them out. Why? Because I could.

I am with Hcky and Kenny on that one with the air compressor. But it is probably an good idea for the average "Joe" who does not do their own grips or serious tinkering with their clubs.

Interesting. I think Sergio needs this. He loves to match the color of his grips with the color of his clothing quite often I've noticed. I guess the "fashion maven" golfer is who I see taking to these.

 

Overall, I think I'd pass. I like it better than the Ping adjustable grips in that it has a "center" position to it so that the grip will be aligned straight upon changng it out. The Ping version just spins around on the shaft until you tighten it when trying to adjust length. Hard to hold it still/keep it aligned. So this is better in that regard.

I like the concept but to me the value would be the ability to try different sizes and change back if you wanted without destroying the grip. in looking at their website, it does't look like they offer oversized grips - I only saw small... may give them a better look when more sizes are available in the players line - the others are a little pricey for me.

I try to think about how often someone would truly use this. To my understanding you have to have the same core size on the grip to change them out, and I feel like that is going to lead to having to buy their brand of grip.

 

Which is fine, but in the end how much tinkering is that truly going to allow? I like the theory, but who couldn't recreate this same idea with a simple air compressor and grip adapter?

Interesting design! I would definitely love to test one and if conveniently tinkers with my putter too I would want one of those. Although I find it's a bit heavier at the end but it works fine for me as I am not trying to save on weight. I'd pass the product for sure.

It's a system that works with its own components. It's not meant to be compatible with regular grips from other companies.

That makes sense.

 

I just don't know how useful it would be beyond maybe colors or something.
