Ive had some really bad experiences with grips (z-cord literally shredded by palm) and wanted to get peoples feedback on the grips they use and why?

I generally use whatever comes on the club.   When it wears out I but what is on sale. The only gripe I didn’t like were black widow but every thing else has held up well.  I have tried grips from hireko house brand to iomic.   Typically I pick Lamkin cross line or golf pride tour velvet.

I have the Iomics on my driver and hybrids and like them a lot.  I got some samples which is why I put them on my clubs about 2 months ago so I have no long term experience.   They probably hold up better because of the material they are made from.

I don't like grips that are too rough on the hands. 

Right now, i am using Jumbomax Ultralite XS because it aligns with the philosophies of the One plane swing program i am working with

I've been using Iomic grips for maybe 10 years, I don't plan on changing.  They DO wear, I can see worn spots on my 3-year old grips.  But they remain tacky, even when worn.  I've never had a better grip in the rain, when combined with rain gloves I never have a problem.  Price-wise, they're in the $11 to $15 range, similar to many of the top-level grips, but as I say at 2 or even 3 years old, they're still "grippy".

I use GP MCC+4 exclusively because I can use them in all kinds of weather without a glove. Also while somewhat soft they wear well through 150+ rounds a year

I change my grips pretty much every season and tend to try before I buy. SO I will get a couple of grips and re-grip my 6i and play with it for a month or 2 and decide if I stay or change.

Couple of years ago I tried Winn DriTac normal and the Lite and really liked the normal grip, I've subsequently moved to the less taper version that was released this year, why?

Pros

  1. They are soft feel and comfortable in my hands
  2. Give good grip on the club (most of the time)
  3. Aesthetically a wide choice of colours to match my head covers/bag
  4. Relatively good wearing

Cons

  1. On the occasion that we get rain and the grips get wet they seem to be slippier than MC4+ or Lamkin Crossline.
    1. I use washing up liquid to clean the grips and I think this was getting trapped in the grips.
    2. I have now started to use a pair of rain gloves that have sorted the problem
  2. If I re-grip a club and the old grip is still in good condition, I try to save the grip. With the DriTac forget it, it pretty much rips apart.
    1. We have 3 golfers in the house so they can get my cast offs, if and when required

@Alf. S have you tried out IOmic grips?

On my to do list in the off season. Got one in the garage ready to go. This might prompt me to do it this week. 

One issue is price $4/grip difference from my UK supplier across a set that's enough to get a box of Pro V1s.

@Alf. S yeah I was thinking about that... IOmic definitely run a little higher but if they last 2-3 season or more then that extra spend would be worth to me.

Brand new GP Tour Wraps are my favorite.  Very sticky.  Unfortunately, the stickiness doesn't long.

@Hook DeLoft Thats what I mean, I recently met a random single that played iomic grips, they felt super tacky. He said they were 4yrs old and still felt the same as the day he had them installed!

@RickyBobby_PR so you buy in to the GP's - 'regrip every year mantra' I know that is true for their grips but feels a little bit like the phone industry having your handset 'wear out' annually 🤔

For replacement it really depends on the amount of use the grips gets and how well someone maintains them. I don’t tend to keep clubs long enough to replace the grips but if I practice and play a lot during a season and the club is in my bad the next year they usually get regripped because they have losses the tackiness. 

Cleaning them with something like gripes or mild soap and water will usually extend them a bit longer.

@RickyBobby_PRthis is true Im definitely not in a place where Id need to replace my clubs before the grips wear out, but supposedly IOmic are in a different league when it comes to wear and from what Im told they can guarantee the feel (tackiness) of the grip for life!
