This is a reasonably new grip post, so I'll chime in again.  I had the original New Decade MC grips when they were pretty new, maybe 15 years or so back.  I liked them, they did really well during a rain-filled trip to Ireland.  But then I tried Iomic grips, and I've never thought about trying anything else.  I'm currently using the X-Evolution grip.  The material stays tacky-feeling for a long time, even when wear spots develop.  I've had them on for three years in some cases, playing close to 80 rounds a year.  I've got nothing bad to say about any other grips, but Iomic is going to be my choice for the foreseeable future.

I'll look into these. Thanks.

I'm definitely going to check these out when I re-grip. I love the army pattern. Can these be made more mid size with extra tape?

Yeah, they'll stretch some, and I think they may sell one or two of the models in a midsize.

I've been using mainly Lamkin Crosslines for the past 5 years.  They work well for me in humid and dry conditions, and have proven to be durable (two full seasons of use).

My new wedges have GP MCC's so I will use those until they need to be replaced, and I'm toying with going mid-size on my Driver and maybe 5-wood, but we'll see.

I bought a TM hybrid recently that came with a GP Tour Velvet 360.  I'm definitely in love with it compared to the generic grips that came on the rest of my clubs.  Outside of the stock Odyssey grip on my putter, the Tour 360 is the grip I've tried.  The feel is super nice!  Before I lose my discount I'm going to order a full set of Tour Velvet Aligns for the rest of my bag.

Something to consider, you can get a "rib-core" version of the standard Tour Velvet for substantially less than the Align model.  As far as I know, they do the same thing, produce a slight rub along the bottom of the club to help consistent placement of your hands on the club.  The rib is simply the old (and not Trademarked and not marketed and not higher-priced) method of providing that reminder rib.

Tour Velvet 360 for me. I prefer to use the club face to align my hands and I don't have to worry about logos or anything stupid when I tinker with adjustable clubs. Great mixture of feel, texture, and resistance to moisture. I've contemplated switching to the Tour Velvet Cord or Multi-compound, but I have yet to do it. 

I never thought about that until you mentioned it. Moving the logo on the backside does prevent aligning my hands properly. Especially if the logo is just off everything else will be offset. I will have to remember that next time i re-grip my clubs. Hell i will have to remember that when I play next time so that I don't line up my hands incorrectly!!

Use :Arccos: for all clubs. Love the feedback and caddie options the app provides.

That's why I loved these grips, I used them for years. But I got tired of not getting through the season without having to regrip.

How much golf do you typically play during the year? I prefer to regrip once a year, but can easily get through two seasons playing 30-50 rounds per year if I have to.

That's how much I play. I was getting flat spots on the driver and wedges.

My MCC+4 last a whole season playing 170 + rounds. I replace them on all my clubs at the beginning of the season regardless if they need the new grips or not.

That's what I switched to. This is my third season with this set and I'll probably need to change them later this year.

Love the full cord grips (Lamkin UTx) for Driver - PW but prefer hybrid/half-cord grips (Lamkin Z5) on wedges.
