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.
