TESTERS WANTED - APPLY NOW

 

 

 

We are looking for 10 MyGolfSpy Forum members to test the Super Stroke TX1 club grips.  Many of you have tried Super Stroke putter grips and now they are making a play to get on the rest of the clubs in your bag.  The Super Stroke TX1 is a multi-material grip, with the upper section being soft, tacky cord and the bottom section being soft rubber.

 

As usual, we're looking for readers who can put the grips through their paces and be willing to write coherently about your experience and provide good quality photographs. 

 

To apply for testing, reply to this thread with the following information:

  • Your handicap
  • What grip you are currently playing
  • How often you regrip your clubs

  • Your handicap - 20
  • What grip you are currently playing - Golf Pride Tour Wraps
  • How often you regrip your clubs - every two seasons
  • Why you would be an awesome grip tester - While i may not be as awesome a guy as PlaidJacket I am training to be. Additionally, I wore the largest gloves the Army made while in the service. I have plenty of surface area on my mitts to put the Super Strokes to the test. Last, but certainly not least, if they are in fact the Red blend shown in the photo above, they will go perfectly with my red paintfill and the rest of my Covert red.

Additionally, 

Many moons ago before Uncle Sam sent me back overseas, I was a journalist. If you want the full blown ABC News treatment (my old employer) I would be glad to provide it. Starting as a photojournalist and then becoming an on air journalist, I will give you the full meal deal if that is what you are looking for.

Handicap: 11

 

Current grip: Golf Pride NDMC standard size

 

How of do you regrip? Once a year typically. I do them myself.

 

Why would you be an awesome grip tester: I typically hit 1000 balls per week on the range and play at least twice a week. Durability would be tested rather quickly. Grips would be tested in various conditions - hot, humid, cold, rain etc.

Handicap: 4

 

Current grips: usually golf pride NDMC or sharpro dual compound if I'm in a pinch.

 

How often do you regrip? About twice per year although it depends if how quick the grips wear out. I do all my own grip work.

 

Why would you be an awesome grip tester? I'm an awesome individual all the way around ;) Seriously though I am very touchy about grips and have very sweaty hands that seem to only work with some form of multi compound grips. Grips are huge for me, I can rarely test a club fairly if it doesn't have a grip that I like on it.

Handicap: 30

 

Current grips: Golf Pride z-grip

 

How often do you regrip? Every couple years previously. I just wasn't playing often enough. Now that I'm playing every week, I suspect I'll be regripping twice a season.

 

Good news is I'm totally due for a regrip. I've been testing a bunch the last few weeks looking for what I like. I'd be a great tester because I haven't settled into a grip I love. I'm kind of like a fresh slate. No preconceived notions! I'll also write an absurdly over the top review that gives each of the 13 grips a name and back story.

Grips Lamkin Utx

I regrip 2-3 times a year depending on number of rounds

Apprenti23's Submission

 

Handicap: Who's asking? Anywhere from a 0 to a 6 depending upon which baggers I'm playing with!

 

Current Grip: Grip Master Stitchback

 

Frequency of Regrip: Haven't played enough combined with frequent club hoing has lead to a lack of requiring a regrip, but when I used to play a lot it was 3-4 times a year. Hoping that will be the case in 2015.

 

Why me: Guaranteed to provide a thorough unbiased review much akin to that of the mission statement of MGS. I have used/sold/installed every grip from Winn Excels and Boccieri's to New Decade MCC's and Iomics. Personal favorite grip is Tour Velvet cords, but my tendinitis hates them. Early 30's scratch golfer and currently unemployed PGA Professional who used to own his own shop. Frequently plays with other PGA Pros and plus handy's to whats-a-handy.

Handicap: 4

 

Current Grip: Golf Pride 1/2 cords

 

How often do you change them: As needed, generally one a year.

 

Why would you be an awesome tester: I believe I have a good track record as a tester. I don't throw my name in the hat for every test either, only those items where I may be of assistance to the company needing the test. I would do an awesome job for Super Stroke. I play 50 plus rounds a season, the test would take place in Florida during hot and often wet conditions and being in my late 50's I'm struggling with the onset of arthritis so grips are an extremely important equipment piece for my game.

 

Thanks for the opportunity to submit an application. I hope that I am chosen but also know that any testers chosen from within the MGS community will do a great job.

Handicap: 11

 

Current Grip: All my woods have Golf Pride NDMC's either Whiteouts or Platinums, and all my irons have Golf Pride Dual Durometers

 

How often I re-grip: I re-grip as needed, which is usually about every other year. With the short golf season here in ND that's about equal to southerners that re-grip every year.

 

Why Me: Well, I love re-gripping my clubs to try out new grips. I use my air compressor, so for me it is a painless task that takes just minutes to do. I also like to test my club's grips with and without a glove to know how that affects feel and play. Now that the season here in ND is starting, I will be playing Men's league weekly, couples league every other week, and rounds with buddies occasionally on weekends. I will have plenty of time to get a feel for these grips and tell everyone here how I felt about them. I love SuperStroke putter grips and was just about to re-grip my irons with the Splash grips over the winter before I heard rumors of these new grips coming out. I planned to have a trial between the TX1 and Golf Pride's new MCC+4 this season. This would be a great way to initiate that showdown.

Thanks for the consideration!

Your handicap

- I currebtly play between a 13-14

 

What grip you are currently playing

- I have Pure P2 Wraps on one set of irons, and Golf Pride NDMCs on my most recent set

 

How often you regrip your clubs

- generally once a year unless I find a grip I like after trying and switch my set over

 

Why you would be an awesome grip tester

- i tend to have a strong grip on the club. This usually means I wear a grip out more often than I'd like. I enjoy check out grips for durability and also comfort. As a review writer, I feel I am articulate and thorough. I will always include as much information as I possibly can. In this case, I would try to simulate different condition (stick a club in the freezer to simulate cold conditions, spray with water for rain and sweat, etc.). I enjoy tinkering with my equipment and grips are especially fun to work with since I do my own install work and could even comment on that aspect of the grip.

  • Your handicap: Grint Index - 6, but with my first baby here that is going up...baby!
  • What grip you are currently playing: Lamkin Crossline Full Cord
  • How often you regrip your clubs: Every Six Months
  • Why you would be an awesome grip tester:

  • I play and practice weekly and in a variety of locations and conditions. I travel weekly for work and I typically lug my clubs with me.  Over the last few months my sticks have scraped grass in VA (Home), PA (prior home), FL and the UK.  I'm a committed range-rat during the week while I'm working and that gives me ample time to put these grips through their paces and provide a thoughtful review to the MGS Community.  Let's do this MGS!

My handicap: 7.2

 

My current choice of grip is the GP MCC, I have switched back and forth between these and the iomic sticky 2.3s

 

I change my grips once a year, past couple years I have done it twice switching sets and liking a different grip in the process.

 

I think I would be an awesome grip tester because I feel I put more into the grip than I should. Going between the sticky's and the MCC got me thinking about how those different grips could change my swing. It got me curious, and I have been tinkering with grip details ever since. I feel that the grip is an extremely important factor in providing a golfer with the ability to feel how their shots react to minor changes in the swing and hands. I would love to see these new Super Strokes and get a feel for how these will effect my shots. To top it all off, I am in a position to be able to test them directly against the others in the wonderful steamy conditions of South Florida.

Handicap-9

Current grip-Lamkin

I regrip every year

I would be a good tester because I play at least 2-3 times a week and always with different players so would have a chance to get your grip in a majority of players hands so that they can see how your new grips feel. Thanks for the opportunity

  • Your handicap - 13.8

     

  • What grip you are currently playing - Standard Callaway Grip

     

  • How often you regrip your clubs - Not often because I'm constantly purchasing new clubs almost every year or two. I practically never regrip my clubs 

     

  • Why you would be an awesome grip tester - I'm going into my third year with my much love Callaway Razr X Black Irons and I need to regrip them now. Since I'm very new to aftermarket grips. This will be a new experience for me and I have no preferrence to any particular style, feel or brand

     

    Thank you for your consideration,

      This is a thread for those who are interested in reading or sharing golf ball comparisons! 
      Personally, I am in the stage of personal ball testing to try to find my next gamer for the next season or two. As such, I have been and am in the process of testing a variety of premium golf balls to see which fits my game and personal preferences. My posts in this site will be coming from off my new website (linked here for those who might want to check it out: https://griffinc6.wixsite.com/golfreviews) and will be in the form of a head to head matchup between two of the balls I am considering. During my tests, I will be taking two different models to the course and playing 9 holes with each in the same round, same day, and same conditions. In my posts, there won't be much in the way of technical data other than distance (measured via Shot Scope) but will rather be how I experienced the balls in terms of distance, spin, flight characteristics, performance and fell around the green, putting, quality, durability, and consistency. Once again, for my posts here, these are by no means a scientific test, but rather what I prefer, what I see, and how the balls perform for me. Therefore whatever performs for me might not translate to your game or your experiences with these products. I also invite everyone to post your own comparisons, head-to-heads, and reviews here as well!
      Now that that is out of the way, let the discussion begin!

      Ping Sigma 2 Tyne 4 – Review
      A little background
      Let’s just start with this:  I am not a stellar putter.  I’m not even an average putter.  I’ve been known to be the ‘take a 6 footer for birdie and turn it into a 7 footer for par’ kind of putter.  I’d like to think part of it is due to the wide variation in greens I get to play on (anything from Plinko on the Price is Right to lightning fast U.S. Open greens), but the reality is I just haven’t been that good.  I’m a dad with limited income to spend on golf and little practice time.
      I started this journey to become a Scratch golfer about two years ago.  Since then, I won a free full bag fitting through Club Champion and had a blast doing it.  My favorite part of the whole experience was the SAM PuttLab fitting.  According to the PuttLab, I’m a consistent slight puller of the putter.  My wonderful human of a fitter recommended mallet style with some toe hang.  He laid out a bunch of putters that fit this mold and I immediately started arching the putter rather than pulling it.  I had never really seen that arch path before and I thought I was going to push every putt 3 feet right of the hole.  Needless to say, I made 25 straight 8 foot putts before we re-tested with my favorite putter of the bunch (the Ping Sigma 2 Tyne 4, which also happened to be the cheapest, go figure).
      The thing that was instantly attractive about this putter was the fact that it could be adjusted for length.  I’m 5’8”, take an athletic posture with my putter, and have long arms.  Long story short, I need a short putter, but everything you can buy off the rack comes between 33-35” (or so it seems).  We cranked it down to 32.5” and bent the loft to 1 degree.  Oh……….my…………GAWD!!!  I’m in love, I’m in love, and I don’t care who knows it!!!
      Eye Candy (aka Looks)
      First off the looks.  This think is a beauty! 

      I love the tynes off the back, makes me think of a fighter jet’s wings.  Who doesn’t love fighter jets?!?  As an added bonus, they are very useful when picking the ball up after you just lagged that 40 footer to inside of 1 foot! 

      Grip
      The stock pistol grip is phenomenal as well.  It really helps me to get my thumbs on top of the grip and parallel to each other. 

      Insert:
      People seem to either love or hate insert putters.  I get it, there is soft and then there is too soft.  Not many people want to feel like they are hitting the golf ball with a marshmallow attached to a shaft.  The dual insert on the Ping Sigma 2 putter line is perfect for me.  Soft enough to feel good at impact, but not soft enough to make you question if you hit it hard enough.

       
      Overall:
      I absolutely enjoy putting practice now!  Get this, you ready for it?  I’ve taken nothing but my putter to the golf course and spent over 1hr putting with my kids!?!  Crazy right? Who does that???  Not a single driver, iron, or wedge hit.  Pure putting. That’s how much I love this putter and how much confidence it gives me.
      I’ve only had two rounds with it, but I’ve had 30 and 31 putts with it so far.  Both of those rounds had at least 3 putts that either lipped out or stopped within 1” of the hole.  Only one 3-putt (and that was on a 60 foot putt, all of my playing partners 3-putted that horrible green lol).  From 5-8 feet, I feel like it is going in all the time.
      Had I the foresight to know that I would be joining MGS, I would have taken stats with my previous putters (yeah, I’m the guy who had like 7 putters all on the bench ready to get in the game whenever the starter started 3-putting) and run an ANOVA on putting metrics to see if this new putter is significantly better or if it is all in my head.  I have since sold those putters and am on the road to a single putter relationship.  You have to give this putter a try if you like the looks of a mallet style fang putter.  It also scored well this year and the previous model as well last year in the MSG putter tests.
      Give this thing a look!!!!  I think I’m going to go roll some putts on my carpet!!!

      Hey all, 
      Anyone bought one of Vice's stand bags? The barrel of my bag is about to die, have been eyeing these off... But I hate buying something I haven't seen in the flesh (?) before. My favourite bag was from a gone bust company called Lind Golf, but can't find a bag with as many features. 
      Unfortunately not heaps of pictures of the Vice bag that aren't dolled up and taken from a romantic angle.

      RW's one word review - FIRM 
      Hopefully you like calluses!

      I've been playing the Lamkin UTx Midsize Reminder for the last season or so, and wanted to see how the Golf Pride Z Grip Align's compare.  My biggest issue with the UTx is the loss of tackiness and grip texture mid round.  I've realized I must have extremely dirty hands because to keep them tacky, I have to clean the grips during my round.  I play in the south, so the necessity for a cord grip is a must.  Hence my gravitation to the Z Grip. Golf Pride hails the Z Grip as the firmest grip model with "heavy cord texture and moisture management."  And indeed it is firm.  I mean really firm, like don't hit one thin.  Ever.
       
      Its also noticeably thinner than the UTx Midsize.  My 6 iron was gripped first with no additional wraps, and that's when I noticed the size difference.  Not to make the same mistake twice, my Fairway Metal was wrapped with 3 additional wraps of tape.  These additional wraps made the grip closest to the size of the UTx Midsize.

      Reminder grips have been around forever, and in Golf Pride's eyes, what's old is new right?  I enjoy a reminder.  I've had grip issues forever, and they help me place my hands where they should be.  Does the Align tech help - Yes.  Is it any better than a standard reminder grip - No.  One downside to reminder grips is they really shouldn't be played with wedges in my opinion.  If you open the club face at all the "Align strip" gets all out of whack and really throws your "align"ment off.  (Currently waiting on the Lamkin Players Cord to come in)
      Final Thoughts
      The Golf Pride Z Cord Align is a great grip if you enjoy a firm feel and need to be "reminded" where your hands go.  I'll play these until the wear out, or want something new, but will not be purchasing again.
