Lost me at $16 per. I did not even get to see if Purple was around there somewhere. I would pay that for a custom choose your color pattern, even the Black with a Purple paintfill over the White accents would do. Thanks for Your time, explanations and the in depth review, also the Anser analogies!

Great write-up. How would you think they perform in sweaty, humid conditions? Still just as sticky and comfy, or are we getting into the finger damage range? 

 

Also agree with @Nihonsei, though, on the price. $16/grip, or almost $225 for a full regrip, can get pricey for your whole bag...

I wish I could give a solid answer on sweaty play but it’s dry here. I’ll get them damp next round and see what happens.

I currently have no1 43s on my clubs, and have used Iomic prior to them for the last decade. $16 a grip isn't too harsh in my world, as they just don't wear out. Through 40+ rounds and at least that many range sessions each year, I get 3-4 years of off a set. No other grips I have tried last me more then one. 

So from that perspective, they cost less than tour velvets. 

 

As for wet /humid, I've found them to be really good. So I'll be curious how this new series holds up and weather's.

Love the look but....the $$$$$$ is all wrong.

I guess I'll keep playing my Pure DTX's for less than half the price.

Send a couple of sets of these to @Tarheelvolvo and me here in Richmond, VA, and we'll let you know if they pass the sweaty palms test.

🤣

Would love to see some William and Mary green and gold.  But unless they start working with Arccos to accommodate the in-grip sensors, I'll be sticking with the RELs.  But seeing as how I hate regripping clubs, I'd be OK with paying $16/grip if they'll last forever.

Loved this article and I am getting about to that time of needing to replace the grips on my irons. Currently using GP MCC4 aligns on woods and on my irons are Super Stroke S-Tech grips on my irons (came on my new irons). I have been surprised that I've liked the S-Techs, but they are comfortable. Despite the price tag for these No-1 UN's, I am now seriously going to consider them due to their long life. I was thinking about Lambkin Dr-Tec's or going go to GP aligns, but this article has me thinking.....

I do love the Lamkin Dr-Tec's for feel, but I will easily go through 3 sets of them before going though a set of the NO 1s. So after a few years, the NO1s work out to be less expensive.

 

Granted, if you have extreme club swapping tendencies like some forum members here, I wouldn't do the NO1s. If you are swapping clubs every few months, I don't think they are worth it. But if you keep your set for a few years, they are a great option.

I think my youngest and I are going to drive out to Lexington to play tomorrow, where I hope it'll be a little cooler.

Excellent review, I had not actually heard of the No1 grips but I would certainly consider getting them after reading this. I will be interested in how they perform in the wet, so please keep the information coming.

      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.

      These four forum members will be testing and reviewing the Golf Pride Tour SNSR Contour Pro (104cc) putter grips:
      @chemclub @BigtazzGolf @JDHolmes @gchester33 Reviewing a set of Z Grip ALIGN grips:
      @LeftyHawk And reviewing the MCC Plus4 ALIGN grips:
      @romeopapazulu @knightsofnii 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. 
       
      How To Apply
      In a post below please list the following:
      First Name/Home State (US Eligible)
      Current Grips Used

      I am new to mygolfspy.com and I love all of it.  I have recently started golfing again regularly and am interested in some new clubs and overall improving my game with and without technology. My handicap is somewhere around 18-22 if I had to guess.
       
      Driver: Orlimar tri-metal 440cc
      fairway woods: also olimar tri-metal
      Irons: ACER XK pro 4-GW
      slotline putter (probably 28 years old)
      titelist 14 way bag
      brooks running shoes.
       
      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).
       
      Say hello, and any advice would be appreciated.
