Winn Lamkin or Golf Pride


Recommended Posts

Just wanted to see what everyone is using on their clubs? What's your flavor? I've been using the New Decade for a while but switched up to the dual durometer. I've been wondering about the Iomic's but they just seem very pricey!

I've played Lamkin Crosslines on most of my clubs. Occasionally I'll throw on a Winn Grip when I want to increase swingweight. I've never been a fan of cord grips. When the ones I have on now wear out I may switch to the new N-DUR. They're just a tad firmer than the crossline.

I currently like the Lamkin Crossline Tour. I think it's just as good as the Golf Pride Tour Velvet, but at a cheaper price.

 

In the near future, I may be giving the Iomic Sticky a try.

I use Lamkin because they have durability that is unmatched IMO. I still have some 12 year old Titleist 962's with their original Lamkin wrap cord grips on them that are still very tacky.

 

One thing to be careful about is when putting a new grip on you should measure the swingweight. That can change dramatically with many grips.

Hands down my favorite grip is the Golf Pride Multi-Compound Cord Grip

 

I couldn't agree more! If it gets slick, just hit it with some fine sandpaper, and BAM...ready to go again.

I play GP New Decade Multi Compounds on all my clubs. I love them but want to give the Iomic grips a try. Maybe buy them for the wedges to see how they work out.

Ok I know this will put me in the extreme rare minority. I have been testing some Tackimac Non-Tapering grips. They are the same size all the way down the length of the grip. I am really liking how they feel. I like the fact that if I choke down on the club to reduce distance the grip is the same size as in my normal position. I will post more updates on these as the season begins...

I have these TM red cap Tour velvets right now that feel incredible. More tacky than Golf Pride tour velvets, dunno why.

 

Iomics are incredibly durable! Have a white one on my driver, and every time i wash it, it feels almost new again.

I play a lot of Golf and hit many buckets of balls during golf season and in Dallas Texas that is pretty much year round. I have played with Winn PCI Hybrid grips before but they seemed to wear out really quick and loose there tacky. I have heard that Lamkin grips have a reputation for being very durable and golf pride as well does anyone have an opinion on this matter.

I have used the Golf Pride Tour Velvet Full Cord grip since 1996. However, Golf Pride is no longer able to produce the same grip. The Vendor that makes the cotton Cord is out of business, and now all they can get is the cotton that makes the BCT Cord grips, which I hate. A stunning turn of events for me, as the one thing I never had to worry about on my sticks was what grip to install. So I have been trying some new grips for the last 6 months, and my favorite so far had been the Tacki Mak Itomic. I know, call me crazy, but this grip seems like the real deal. Nice tacky feel, good in the weather, but durable, and comes in 4 fashionable colors. And the best part is the price. My local shop has them for $3.50 each. Much better than that New Decade for $7.85 that wears out in 2 months. JMHO...

I just regripped my set with Takimac Itomic grips. Very soft and sticky. Some have had problems with a loss of softness when building them up, but I play with only one wrap and they are great. Red on irons, white on woods. Red does stay cleaner, but a sponge, soap, and water and the whites are bright and sticky. We will see how they wear, but golfsmith had them for $3.50 each so I could burn a couple of sets a season and not hit the price of some of the other grips.

Well, I currently use red Lamkin Crossline grips, but I am getting ready to throw some of the new Lamkin Preformance Plus with 3Gen in white on my irons. They look and feel amazing!

I'm a Golf Pride Tour Velvet Midsize kind of guy. I like looking at all the fancy colored grips, and some of them feel pretty nice, but when it comes down to it I can put on a set of Tour Velvets in March and not worry about it again until next March (unless I get a lot of play in) and they're cheap. Hard for me to justify paying twice as much for one grip versus another when I like the cheap one just fine.

 

FWIW, on my putters I'm an Iomic guy, but I do have a couple of Stitchbacks that are making me think about changing my ways. This summer one of those Stitchbacks might see some bag time and I'll judge how it wears. Sticking with the theme of being cheap: one of the reasons I love Iomics is their durability. I ordered one on my first custom Byron and have gamed it for the better part of 3 years without the need to change it.

My current Byron has an Iomic and I love it. The new one has a blue cow gripmaster. I think the leather takes a bit more time to work in, but then it will feel like that well worn baseball glove.

Thats the theory. Probably blue iomic by July.

I am in the market for new grips and I want to try the Iomics but they are just to expensive for me. Maybe I'll do the New Decades again cus I loved mine. Tacki-Mac and Lambkin are in consideration. Winn grips are a huge no for me, I've used them and hated them. I was looking in my golfsmith catalog last night and saw Black Widow grips. Does any one know about these?
