Leather Grips? Who has used them


Recommended Posts

I've taken the plunge, last night I ordered enough GripMaster Roos to outfit a set of irons and any wedges that could be in play.

We are in the GoZone layer

I usually grip using a layer of tape followed by a layer of double sided grip tape.  Then I use Brampton HF-100 grip solvent.  The only issue is that the double sided tape will create a bond that is difficult to break with an air compressor grip removal tool.  I just regripped my Ben Hogan Icon blades using painters tape and WD-40 with Contact Cement (per Harry Sewill's recommendation).  My biggest issue with the BestGrips microperf grips is when I sell a set and I cannot remove the grip because of the double sided tape method.  Now I will be able to save my grips because these have outlasted any club I have used.

I play Gripmaster The Kidd leather grips on my irons as I don't play with a glove and live in NC where it's very hot and humid.  Leather has become my go to because of how sticky they get the more moisture you have on your hands.  I install them with an air compression and standard masking tape and they don't slip or move.  I've been able to transfer them to multiple sets this way in the past.

My bag is a revolving door!

That;s what I am starting to do.  I followed the installation procedure by BestGrips and attempted to do the non-air, painter's tape method.  I do have a small air compressor and will do that on my next install of my sand wedge I need to shaft/trim and grip.

I have a leather grip on my Scotty Cameron. It feels great in perfect conditions but if it’s hot and you are sweating or if it’s rainy the grip gets insanely slimy.

Hmm. What leather grip is it (i.e. who makes it)?

Its a Grip Master which I believe is made in Australia.    I also tried a Leather Sticky Grip as well and it was pretty much the same outcome

OK guys I haven't commented on here in a while, but I did get my leather grips and here is what I found so far.  

I am torn still.  I like the round aspect of the wrap but after a range session I could feel the wrap being folded back under the thumb.  I really like the Best grips but not crazy about the stitching.  I have always used round grips so the stitching is a different feeling to me!  Still doing some testing, would love a round grip with no stitching but don't think that exists.  I do like the Best Grip better than the Grip Master wrap, but I also haven't tried a Grip Master with the stitching.

The Roo has the stitching on the inside, so it's not as noticeable. Something to think about. I typically use the wraps only on my woods and wedges because I change the orientation of the grip in my hands regularly with them. I have only had one roll on me.
