Golf Pride "align" grips - MCC / MCC+4


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

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'

Lamkin Crossline - Cord and Regular

Lamkin R.E.L. Ace Grips

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.

I put the standard align grip on a 3w driver that I made up, not sure if it works or not, I didn't feel anything different, but I hit a lot of fairways so something was right.

Did you buy the Arccos system or something?  How are you connecting your 'award-winning' driver to the app now?

Anyone have trouble with the align grip staying straight after a swing?  Maybe it wasn't installed properly, but I always seem to be adjusting it afterwards...

 

That said it's a really neat reminder on the club.  I've enjoyed playing with them.

I've never had any grip move after installation. I don't think these would move nor should they. I would have it reinstalled.

Yes, I found a refurbished Generation 1 Arccos set on EBay for $44.95.....so I am on the full Arccos bandwagon now!

I have the MCC Align +4 in Midsize on all my clubs now after already having the original +4's before I re-shafted my set. I personally love the feel of them and as some others have mentioned the red alignment strip has moved off centre slightly on my driver and 3w. This does not worry me as I don't use the strip for any swing thought or swing feel when I'm actually hitting the ball and they haven't moved a great deal or continued to move since my initial rounds and range sessions. I've found it more as an added security that locks into my preferred hand/ finger position each time I pick up that club. Kinda like my own personal grip that has now moulded to my hand and swing. One added extra I have noticed is that my short game has improved with better ball striking. I'll be re-griping with these again when the time comes.
