Best grips for sweaty hands and humid conditions

Recommended Posts

What are some of the best grips for sweaty hands and humid conditions. I am currently using GP MCC Plus 4 and they aren't the best for me.

I play without a glove and currently use Lamkin Sonars. Prior to this season I used GP Tour Wrap 2G.

Once they’re installed give them a nice soak in hot soapy water and rinse dry with warm water. Wipe dry and you’re good to good.

I have the same problem.  The best I have used are the Winn DriTac.  I still need to wear a glove in the Mississippi heat and humidity but I can go without a glove when the temps and humidity are lower.  Another idea is to spray your hands with an antiperspirant like Right Guard and use sweatbands on your wrists ala Bob Estes.

... I also play without a glove and it get very humid here in the middle of summer. I have Lamkin UTx on all my clubs. As long as you have a wet towel and wipe them down and then dry the off they stay very tacky. Interestingly in Phoenix last winter, I only needed to wipe them down with my wet towel and the dry desert air took care of drying them off.

For me, the best grips by far have been the Royal V-Sand Wraps.

But I also always use this to great affect:

@chisag - Not using the RELs anymore?  I'm still using them, and they're great in the humidity of Richmond, VA.

If your hands are wet and you're playing Tour Wraps, don't hit a punch shot if you're at the edge of a lake.  Just sayin'...

I play without a glove too and I have played some version of a Winn grip for years. I'm currently playing a grip they no longer make so I horde them (Winn Pro Wrap Midsize) but I need to find a new grip myself. Winn has worked the best for me and having dry hands is of paramount importance to me.

I use Iomic X Evolution grips.  for me, they're the best in the rain and humid weather, and stay tacky for years.  really, years, my current set is over 2 years old and still great.

I don't use a glove and use the Pure DTX. I haven't had an issue with them when I've been rained on nor when it gets soupy.

GripMaster Kidd leather grips. These things feel like Neumann tackified keather football gloves. Awesome grip and just a couple dollars more than leading grips.

...  I still have a few on my hybrid and F6 baffler but have moved to the UTx. Honestly I like the feel of the REL more, but I went thru regripping twice every season as they wore out and when I went to Lamkin to reorder them, they were out of REL"s and had some UTx on sale so I tried them. The cords make them last an entire season or more and they are just as tacky but where the REL's needed to be wiped down every 2nd or 3rd shot, the UTx need to be wiped before every shot for max tack.

Forgot to say I use GP New Decade multi comp. now. Back in the 90s I used full cord grips w/o a glove.

Have the same take. Love the grips 9 months out of the year, but there's not enough cording for when it's 90* plus and humid.

Bought a can of Golf Tac at golf galaxy the other day and it seems to help a lot. Just spray a quick squirt on your glove or grip and you're good to go for 6-7 holes.

I also bought a towel called Gorilla Gold but haven't tried it yet.

Golf Pride Tour Velvet Cords have been good enough for me for twenty plus years in South Florida
