This is an often forgotten topic, but I think one of the more important aspects of any golf club.  

What's your go to Golf Grip and Why?

I'm a 100% sold on the Golf Price MMC +4 Midsized grip.  Various colors are available, but I typically go with the all grey.  I find those grips allow for ease of use whether I'm gripping down to hit chips or 3/4 shots, or on the full shots.  I also find with the weather that if they do get wet or during the cold they provide me with the best grip on the clubs.  I used to be a long time cord player, but replacing those things two to three times a year was such a hassle and frankly I don't think they ever really provided me with the feel that I get out of these new ones.  

So with that said, what are you gaming for 2022 and why?  Or do grips really not factor into your game that much.  Interesting topic I'd love to hear everyones input on.

I am looking forward to hearing from others on this subject  Previously I used Winn Dritac X Standard Golf Grips.  I liked the way they felt in my hand and they provided a bit more 'grip' for me.  On thing I did not enjoy about them was having to replace them so often.  Just recently I have installed Lamkin ST+2 Hybrid Calibrate on my driver, fairways and hybrid.  I read some reviews and from those reviews I thought I would give them a try.

I have either Golf Pride Tour Wrap 2Gs or Winn Excels on everything but my putter.

Not wearing a glove, I only feel comfortable with wrap-style synthetic leather grips.

Ironically, since I'm currently playing a hickory shafted putter, that has a real leather wrap grip.

Basically for me it is regular old Tour Wraps since I have so many of them--- Easy to maintain just use water and dry them off--- Also since I use air to install they come on and off easy. Now when I was setting up the irons in my signature I found a heck of a deal on some new blue Tour Wraps locally. So the TMs have blue Tour Wraps on them.

Like the OP, I’m sold on Golf Pride MCC Plus4 midsize grips (grey). And when I regrip I’ll go with the same, maybe I’ll get all crazy and get a different color… 😁

But to be totally honest, I think I'm more married to midsize than a particular grip model (that was a revelation after decades with standard grips). There are quite a few brands/models I think I'd be fine with as long as they were midsized.

For 10 years or longer I've used grips from Iomic.  They stay tacky for years, much longer than anything I've ever used, including the original GP New DEcade multi-compound grips, including all cord grips.  My favorite are the X-Evolutions.

 seems to be no shortage of colors in the MCCs. 🤣  Kinda crazy how many they make now, adding in "teams" colors too.

I've gone through several different grips in the past few years:

  • Lamkin Crossline
  • Star Sidewinder
  • Lamkin Sonar
  • Lamkin Sonar Tour
  • Various one offs - MCC Align, MCC+4, MCC, Tour Velvet

Currently on the Lamkin Sonar Tours with two additional wraps under the right hand. I think my next set of grips will be the new Pure Combos. 

The grip on the Sonar Tours is aggressive but not as aggressive as a cord. Grip is good in all conditions but extremely wet. Only complaint is that I've worn the texture off of them where my "trigger" finger on my right hand lands.

The Lamkin St's had me intrigued when they came out.  I've wanted to try something different than the MMC's just to see if I was missing out on anything.  But I keep finding myself coming back to the same ole MCC's because they just feel comfortable.  But those ST's do look good and have a great price compared to the GP's.

Man, I remember back in the day playing the cords and how early season my hands used to be minced meat from them!  They were absolutely aggressive.  Made me think of that.

I love the Superstroke Pistol grip.  Love that it's just a little bigger than standard but the same pistol shape.  The Flatso seemed just a bit bigger in my hands and hard to handle when I tried.

I find the flatso to help me eliminate all hands and get a smooth stroke. I do like the pistol one too just settled on flatso for hopefully a while.

... I don't use a glove so I have always played very tacky grips. Most need to be wiped down before every shot when playing and then washed with dish soap at least once a week. For me the ST Hybrid is a game changer. Hard to describe but they are not tacky at all yet provide a very secure grip with no slipping. Gotta love science. Now I wash them about once every other week and never wipe them down when playing because the texture never changes.

For me this season it's a transition to the Pure DTX Standard in Players Green, two wraps, on all irons and wedges. Woods still have Tour Velvet 360's but since at the end of the 2022 season I'll be making an investment in that part of the bag to set up the next 5-7 years of my golfing life, they'll stay and get Pure DTX's at that point, perhaps in green or perhaps one of the funky neon colors like orange or pink.

Because I'm also a bit of a stickler about these things, grip on the putter is, going to be once I decide to put it on, a Pure Midsize Pistol in Green as well. A bit bigger than the standard SIK Golf grip I had and the switch to a SuperStroke MidSlim was not the fix I was looking for.

For the past two seasons it's been Lamkin Sonar Wrap with Calibrate.

I always always loved the ribbed grips and this grip hits the mark for me.  I can play them without a glove when it isn't too humid, they're nice and soft for my delicate sensibilities and I like the feel of the wrap.

Great grip and so far, quite durable.

That's a good thing considering how dang expensive grips are right now.  The one golf purchase I make that I cringe every time I make it. I do enjoy the tacky feel though on a grip.  The MCC doesn't necessarily have that, but in an equally difficult way to describe it, they provide a very sure no slip feel to them as well.

two of my playing partners use that exact grip as well.  They enjoy it and it seems to work well for them doing exactly what you're looking for, eliminating the wristy handy swing.  Hopefully that does work for a while.  But you know as well as I do we are all tinkerers so change is inevitable. 🤣
