When I got fit I asked for the wrench and they wouldn't give it to me. Seriously. They said that if something is wrong, come back and they'll watch me hit some balls and make the adjustment there.

You don't need a wrench though... Find the right "star" bit and put it on a bit driver and you're all set...


Did they reduce the cost for you, since the cost of the wrench is built in to the cost of the driver from the manufacturer. Anyway, the size for most of them is Torx 25, or T25z. Some of the older cobra stuff uses T20.

I don't think so...
I was really surprised that they wouldn't let me have the wrench... I didn't push it too hard.

These grips have definitely been on my ponder list, next time I re grip my irons I think a set of these is going on them.

Played with a guy last week who had just put them on and he loved them. I just felt his driver with it but they felt awesome. They are definitely on my radar for my next set of grips.

Had a chance to look at it at Golf Galaxy and the rib is not as pronounced as I thought it would be, maybe it has to be installed first to feel anything. Definitely interested to hear all of your experiences.

I have them on every club in my bag except putter. My first club was a cut off four wood with a Green Victory Ribbed grip. Have never played round grips. Hate them!! Played tour velvet ribbed since they came out. The Align plus 4 are awesome!! Very noticeable rib and just feel great. Highly recommend

Found these while looking on golf galaxy... looks like I can build my own "align" grips using any grip I want for a lot less money... 

 

anyone tried these before?

Man that looks like a lot of work to save a few bucks. You've got to get the alignments just right and then hope they don't shift both during the installation and during use. 

 

I use ping ID-8 grips on my Bridgestone irons because of the rib, and it's a firm grip which i like. I can find the grip for $6/each in most stores and online. 

 

Here are a couple more grips that are ribbed with a 'reminder'

Golf Pride Tour Velvet

Lamkin Crossline - Cord and Regular

Lamkin R.E.L. Ace Grips

Lamkin Z5

Cobra F8 19* Hybrid w/ Hzrdus Black 85 6.5

Callaway MD3 58* C Grind w/ DG Wedge Flex

Cobra Tour Trusty 62* w/ DG Wedge Flex

Odyssey O-Works W/B/W 1W

All my clubs are lefty style...cause I thoroughly enjoy having limited options when buying golf equipment.

Have them on all my clubs. Don't really notice the rib if I grip it right. Have no issue with opening up my wedges. Not an issue with adjustable clubs once you have them adjusted where you want them.

Thanks!  I might check those out.  Apparently the 'ribs' come with an alignment aid so that you get them centered on the shaft just right.

I've used both the tour wrap ribbed and velvet ribbed in the past. I tried the align grips on a friend clubs last week. Here's what i noticed:

 

The older ribbed style are much more pronounced. If you are older, like me, or have any hand swelling - feel problems, you may not feel the align rib at all. It is very subtle. My friend said he could not feel it in his fingers at all, so it was of no benefit to him at a pretty big surcharge. You definitely need to try the grip installed before you go to the expense of purchase. All the other comments here are valid. Installation may be an issue, for as in the original ribbed version, you or your installer may not get them all aligned at the same face angle. And of course on an adjustable club (if you tinker) you would not want to install any align or ribbed grip.

I've recently had all my irons re-shafted and decided to replace all my grips with the Plus 4 Align in midsize. I previously had the original Plus 4's and loved them. The new Align grips are just as advertised and help with getting the grip more consistent with each shot. It may be placebo but in my mind I feel like I have more control over the club face now I have a reference point to where a square club face is relative to my hands. As with the original Plus 4's the new grips tend to feel a bit squishy when first installed, especially if you haven't tried them before. I did also find the new Align grip on the driver had a tendency to move out of a straight line but nothing that made the grip feel abnormal, more of a visual observation. In any case Ill be buying these again next time I re-grip.

    Anyone out there wear or have worn New Balance spikes? In my opinion they make a pretty good shoe. As of late they have worked there way into the baseball scene and appears they have done quite well.
