I am considering using a lighter grip to up the swing weight of my Bridgestone J38 Dual Pocket Cavities and am wondering if anyone has tried the Tour 25 grip from Golf Pride? I'm just curious how the grip feels in relation to the standard tour velvet grip or Lamkin crossline. Harder, softer, grippyness, etc.
So I need to replace my grips soon on all 13 clubs. I have GP Tour Velvets now. I am a mid-sized grip size. But I've had troubles with sweaty hands and slightly losing my grip during the swing. Any tips on new good grips for sweaty hands / losing your grip?
Any suggestions would help!
p.s. I've got Speith, Phil, DJ, Kuchar, and Stenson as my top 5 (not necessarily in that order) for The Open! Who do you have for The Open this year?
Well, I wasn't much of a floor reporter while I was in Orlando. I'm not in the habit of taking pictures with my phone, nor can I really type more than brief texts with it and I wasn't exactly in "shopping mode" while I was attending. I was primarily in Orlando for the golf, more than any interest in equipment changes.
I'm actually surprised I made a purchase at all, which should indicate why I'm particularly impressed with this product.
As I've mentioned on other posts, I started having tendon problems in my hands last season and started experimenting with different club grips and gloves.
I don't want to give the impression that the P2 Putter Grip is specifically, or ONLY designed for golfers with "bad hands." Since many players are now using "jumbo" grips, this style of grip should have wide appeal.
I've tried a couple of SuperStroke style grips, but hadn't yet found one that really felt natural for me. What prompted me to buy one at the show is simply this: it's the first oversize grip that just felt comfortable in my hands. But, it's not JUST an oversize grip, there's some science behind their concept as well.
"Some golfers while putting over rotate and close the putter face, and some golfers under rotate and open the putter face. P2 will help to address both issues and aid your putting stroke regardless of which tendency you currently have.
The double flat sided design of the P2 grip, encourages both hands to be positioned squarely to the target making it more difficult to over rotate the wrist.
As the off-centre shaft forces the wrists into a higher position, it limits the wrists range of motion which is crucial. P2 prevents the dreaded â€œwrist flickâ€ at impact and encourages the lead wrist to continue working towards the target."
Since I've got a few more months before the local courses will open, it will be awhile before I can give a real review of the P2 Grip, but I wanted to at least make folks that read the forum aware of the grip.
