Full announcement here

 

                                          3-Testers Wanted

Z Grip ALIGN

Tour Velvet ALIGN

MCC & MCC Plus 4 ALIGN

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
feel preferences.

AND

4-Testers Wanted

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.

First Name/Home State (US Eligible)

Good luck to those that apply. Must be Golf Pride day as I got the urge to try the Contour Pro 104cc grip so I bought one this morning for my Toulon Indianapolis. Can't wait to see how it compares to the original for me and how it compares to the testers previous grip.

Gripmaster Leather on one set of irons and Golf Pride MCC (New Decade® MultiCompound) on the other

Align Z Cord Grip for sure.  Summer in NC is coming up and I don't use a glove when I play so I need all the cord!

We're all human, happy to help.

I'll be interested to see what the Tour Velvet +4 tester has to say. I'm probably gonna throw a couple of them on a few of my irons to test myself.

      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)
      Final Thoughts
      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.

      I am going out on a stretch with this one...
      When we all buy new golf clubs or are in the market for a new club (testing), we head over to our local shop (Dicks Sports, Edwin Watts, PGA Superstore, etc) and request to try the clubs out in the bay with the launch monitors. Of course, how well is the new club going to compare to our existing club. In my personal experience, the employees in the shops always seem annoyed when you ask to try out clubs in the bays; more so if you are a lefty such as myself. That means they have to move the launch monitor sensor to the other side of the mat 🤬. Those of us not on tour or living in the 1% wealth do not have the ability to own a Trackman or GC Quad BUT would still like to utilize those products to test equipment and learn to gap our clubs. Do these 8 new drivers really give me 20 more yards and are much more straight than my existing driver... who knows, but the golf shop guy does not want me spending 3 hours testing all his equipment. Yet he wonders why i do not buy anything after i try one driver and dont get results. Don't be annoyed with me if i ask to try a different driver.
      Here is the dream... A driving range with 2-4 bays rigged with launch monitors. Having top of the line monitors may be quite expensive but something to at least provide sufficient data to help the average or better golfer. By allowing players to learn their yardages and make adjustments will in essence speed up rounds as well. With the popularity of the technology AT the range, players would need to schedule times and pay fees for equipment use. The Arccos system is a great tool to help gap and determine club lengths BUT it takes quite a few rounds to determine all your clubs. Now i can hit 20 shots with each club and get solid data on EACH club. In addition, i can borrow or rent multiple clubs if i am in the market for a new driver, iron set, etc. IDEALLY having newly released equipment AT the  range would be perfect.
      My Golf Spy Community, lets make this happen!
      Make this the new Top Golf or get me in touch with a Top Golf guy to integrate this!
