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)
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.

Tour Velvet Plus 4 (rubber or cord)
Golf Pride ® a division of power management company Eaton and an
industry leader in grip innovation, today announced it will offer the brand’s Z-Grip ® with its
popular ALIGN ® Technology in 2019.
According to a recent survey, ALIGN Technology is now used by 74 TOUR players. This
technology was first introduced in Golf Pride brand’s MCC ® and MCC Plus4 ® hybrid grips and is
also available in a Tour Velvet® grip (all rubber) option. With the addition of a full cord grip to
complement the existing options, Golf Pride will now offer ALIGN Technology in a full range of
Tour SNSR Contour Pro (104 or 140cc)
The Contour Pro putter grip offers the leading Tour-
preferred, pistol-shape in two oversized models for unsurpassed feel and feedback.
The TOUR SNSR Contour Pro utilizes the same soft, ultra-tuned rubber formulation as its
predecessors giving the grip an excellent feel and facilitating lighter grip pressure to encourage
a smoother stroke. The proprietary TOUR SNSR technology enhances feedback, affording
better distance control on greens of all speeds.
The TOUR SNSR Contour Pro putter grip also features soft, rounded edges, and a pistol flare
back to more naturally fit in the hands. The shape includes a wide, paddle front for a consistent
landing zone for the fingers and a tapered profile for players who prefer the traditional,
sculptured grip design. This pistol shaped putter grip with contour has been trusted by the best
players in the world to win the most coveted championships in golf.
Doing this Testing, DOES NOT disqualify you from other Testing in 2019, once this ones' completed. We expect this testing to be much shorter than club testings, perhaps 4 weeks total.

I don't have favorite grips, but my hands sweat even when they shouldn't and am in the market.
I am also a big guy...5'10 300+ and am trying to lose weight while improving my golf game.
I am intrigued by blades. If I can hit them well, I know I am doing it right. (I don't own blades).
