Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

  • Your handicap:   3
  • What grip you are currently playing: Golf Pride - New Decade Midsize
  • How often you regrip your clubs - Once a year, Twice if I play in a lot of excessive weather
  • Why you would be an awesome grip tester: I know the manufacturers, I know the gripping process. I am a custom club maker and have tried all the new grips from Winn, Golfpride, and Lamkin already this year and have a good base of comparison and what the grip performance standard is for each type. I have a medium fast swing and I play shots with and without a glove in rain, heat, and cold.

Handicap: 12

 

Current grip: Golf Pride multi

 

Regrip frequency:  usually twice per year

 

Good tester:  I have lovely hands - - - no, really!!  Live in Virginia where the humidity is pretty bad and my (lovely) hands sweat like crazy.  This would be a good test for these SS grips.  I play about 80-100 rounds per year, except during polar vortices.  I'm a lawyer, so I know how to write good.

Handicap: 11

Current Grips: Lamkin Crossline 3 GEN

Regrip: Yearly in the Spring

Great tester: I hit the range 3-5 times per week, so, my grips see plenty of use. I play in various conditions throughout the year. (Cold, hot, wet, humid) I play in the humid Eastern half of Kansas as well as the dry, windy Western half of the state. I ask a lot of my grips to help keep my grip relaxed so I have one less thing to worry about during my round of golf.

Thanks to MGS and Super Stroke for the opportunity. I love my Super Stroke putter grip. These grips would compliment it well.

  • Your handicap - 7.2

  • What grip you are currently playing - Taylormade, Ping, Titlelist & Rexton
  • How often you regrip your clubs 2-3 times/yr.
  • Why you would be an awesome grip tester - Well, obviously I need some consistency in my grip choices.  ;-)  Currently using the grips that came with the clubs (were too new to change) except for the Rexton (wanted a midsize on the club).  I do my own regripping & have a ton of Black Widow grips I was going to install when ready.  I play 100+ rounds/yr and can give these grips a real test.  I have a spellchecker that keeps me somewhat in line and vaguely remember basic grammer.

Your Handicap - 18

What grip are you currently playing - winn

How often do you regrip your clubs - yearly

Why would you be an awesome grip tester - Well, with my awesome handicap my grips get tested quite well, sometime the club slips 10 to 20 yards.  See Rory's club slip into the lake a few weeks ago.  I need something that will  allow me to keep my grip and not SLIP out of my hands.  I think it would greatly impact my game. 

 

Also, if you have a Jordon Spieth swing for sale, I will take one of those

Handicap: 15

 

Currently playing: Stock Speedblade grips on irons, NDMC black out on wedges, SS Mid 2.0 Ryder Cup on putter

 

How often I regrip: Every couple of seasons, or as needed

 

Why I would make a great tester: I play NDMC on my wedges, and have been thinking of switching the grips on my irons to the same this coming season. I think it'd be great to test these SS grips and compare them to the NDMC, as I think these grips should be very comparable to them. I love the SS grip on my putter, and if these are grips do to my iron game what that grip did to my putting... well, watch out!

  • Your handicap: 8.6
  • What grip you are currently playing: Pure Grips DTX, GP Tour Velvet Cord, GP New Decade MCC, GP Tour Wrap, Lamkin REL Ace 3rd Gen.
  • How often you regrip your clubs: Yearly
  • Why you would be an awesome grip tester:  
  • There are several key reasons you should select me as a tester for the Super Stroke Grip project.  I travel around the country for work and have a few sets of clubs scattered across the US.  I regrip each of my iron sets yearly, I put new grips on the woods as necessary.  As you can see from the list above, I currently game a selection of the most popular, most innovative grips available. My primary set of clubs at home see's 90 rounds per year in the Seattle area.  They are a mix of GP New Decade MCC and Tour Velvet Cord grips.  In my Super Stroke review, I will offer a wide range of grip experience to compare the Super Stroke grips to.  
  • I have alluded to another reason you want me as a tester.  I have posted 17 scores since the March posting season began.  I have already posted scores in Seattle, North Carolina, and Bandon Dunes.  I put grips to the most extreme conditions imaginable, heavy rain, near freezing conditions, humidity, extreme heat.  I play 120 rounds a year.  I will put these grips to the test!  But that's not all, I have an excellent group of golf buddies, I will have them give these grips a try as well.  
  • Lastly, I am a huge GolfSpy fan.  Your reviews are amazing.  I have used Golf Spy to purchase the "Most Accurate Putter" on the market - I scored a pre-recall Ketsch and it's awesome.  I recently used the GolfSpy Most Wanted Driver rankings along with a fitting day at my club to purchase a BB Alpha 815 DBD.  I would love to be part of the best testing group in the industry.  
  • OK - I realize I sound like many of the other responders to this contest.  I have one more thing to offer you, Cash!  As soon as I press send, I am donating to GolfSpy to support independent golf equipment testing.  I am putting my money where my mouth is.  I am tired of the big mag's telling me that every product on the market earns a Gold Star.  GolfSpy puts golf equipment to the most thoughtful, realistic tests possible and therefore gives golfers everywhere the best information possible.  I want to be a part of that.

Welcome Jake!  Glad to see another PNW golfer on the forum, even if you are on the wet side.  :)

  • Your handicap - 10.1
  • What grip you are currently playing - Winn Duratech
  • How often you regrip your clubs - about every 1.5 seasons
  • Why you would be an awesome grip tester - I play a lot and have very sweaty hands (hence the duratech grips).  I was playing the Dry-tac which I prefer for tackiness but they are too soft.

Handicap - 5 (went up a bit)

Current Grips - Iomic Sticky on Metals and Irons, No1 on Wedges, Pure grips on my back-ups

Gripping Frequency - 6 to 12 months as needed

Why would I be an awesome tester - Because I have done it before in your forum. I have tested a lot of grips. I do not wear a glove and play in hot humid conditions. However, in all honesty I would probably only do 2 clubs, an iron and Driver.

Handicap - 0

Current Grip - Lamkin UTX Midsize

Regrip - once a year

Why I would be  a great tester - I hit a ton of balls ( and I do mean range balls ) and play at least once if not twice a week. I wear holes in my glove on my thumb and need to see if these grips maybe would save me some money on gloves.

Handicap - +1

 Current grip - mix between new decade multis and standard tour velv

Why would i be an awesome regripper - I work at a dicks sporting goods. I can give my honest feedback to customers.

I will test these grips in all conditions and make sure everyone knows whether i like them or not. Im very detail oriented and will take good pictures as well. Also, i currently coach college golf so i could talk to my players about the grips as well and maybe get them interested too! Love my counter balanced super stroke putter grip btw, best model yet.

  • How often you regrip your clubs - Once per season

Pick me!!


  • Your handicap: +18, when the Sun is shining and the birds are quietly chirping

  • What grip you are currently playing:  Golf Pride Tour Velvet Super Tack on the wedges, Golf Pride MCCs on the irons 

  • How often you regrip your clubs: At the beginning of Spring...Spring showers brings new grips!

  • Why you would be an awesome grip tester:  I love the game of golf.  I'm not obsessed with my desires.  The Zen philosopher Basha once wrote, "A flute with no holes, is not a flute. A donut with no hole, is a Danish." He was a funny guy.  If given the opportunity to be a tester, I'll ensure I give an unbiased, descriptive review of the grips.  I've used Winn grips before my Golf Prides...I have no allegiance, whatever works and feels the best.  I also have a really nice iPhone 6 that produces quality photos so I can properly document the fancy multi-materials of the TX1 grips.  Lastly, as a pilot, all I do fly and play golf, so those grips will get plenty of time in my hands.

Thank you for your consideration!

  • 15 handicap
  • Currently gaming Golf Pride New Decade Multi-Compound and Super Stroke Ultra Slim 1.0 on my putter
  • I re-grip my clubs at least once a year or whenever I feel like I need to change up my mojo.
  • I would be an awesome tester because I work at a golf resort where I am able to play just about everyday and really put the product through its paces. Plus I am a total golf fanatic/addict and will be sure to get it a thorough test.

I'm sad cuz I'm on the shelf for two months and wouldn't qualify for testing these.

I am however due, and am really looking forward to some good reasons to go this direction. Looks alone have me sold.

4 handicap

Golf pride tour wraps, standard size

I regrip around once or twice a year

I would be an awesome tester of these grips because this game is my life and am looking for anything that could give me an edge over other players. I'm looking forward to seeing if these grips help me play like Speith... Or if they're just trying to break away from strictly putters.
