Affordable Grips for Classic Clubs


Recommended Posts

I've been accumulating classic clubs that I've been fooling around with.  Unsurprisingly, the grips are rock hard, cracking, dry rotting, etc.  I have two sets of irons (the Apex Grinds and the Mac Muirfields) and several woods in need of new grips.  I wish I had the money to burn to throw some nice leather Best Grips on them, but I just can't justify that.  So does anyone have any suggestions for inexpensive and simple-looking grips?  I'm not looking for something that will hold up to several rounds a week - these clubs only see action once a month or less.

I've been looking at the Karma wraps from Hireko, but I'm open to any and all suggestions.

Those are some nice looking grips, just what I'm looking for in the looks department.  But at $7-$8 per grip, I'd be spending more on the grips than I did on the clubs.  Is there some secret source sells them cheap?

FWIW - I went with these

They look like old-school Crosslines.  If they're not ribbed, I can install them logo down.  And if not, no big deal.  Pretty highly rated, and certainly cheap enough to take a flyer on.

If those don't work out or you decide to do more clubs, hurricane golf has some good deals on grips.  These might have worked well and they have even more less expensive options from other less known brands...

Nice read.. Sorry I missed it.. I reviewed the Wilson D300's a couple of years ago (before CCC2) and they beat out my Ping G25's. So i know Wilson makes great clubs.. If you are looking at wedges try the Cleveland RTX Zipcore... They are very nice, FOR ME, i got more spin and stopping.. Tee 'em High and Hit 'em Long my friend.. 😀
