People often ask, how do I choose a grip? Which one is better than the rest ? All great questions, especially in a product area that can seem a bit imposing, if not down right confusing! Well, the answer is actually quite simple. Golfers should choose the grip they like the feel of but since you can’t feel them here is some information that will help you choose what is best for you. I personally like a grip that’s tacky and a bit oversized.
Lets talk more about a couple of Pinemeadow’s new upgradable grips:
Crossline Tour Full Cord by Lamkin: The “full cord” is a grip that was originally designed for the Pro Tour. Tour players were looking for a grip with extra traction in hot and humid environments. If you think about it, it makes perfect sense. When the Tour shifts from the west coast and moves east, the heat and the humidity are the first things players notice. The full cord grip also offers way better traction for golfers that can’t and or do not like to wear golf gloves. If you live in an area where humidity is a big problem these grips are perfect solution for you.
Performance Plus 3GEN Standard by Lamkin: The 3GEN is one of Lamkin’s newest grips. The 3GEN material is proprietary and is made from synthetic rubber. The goal with this grip was to produce a soft and tacky feel, while not absorbing moisture. In addition, the profile of the grip is slightly larger.
So, be open to grabbing a club here or there that might different than yours to see how the grip feels. Remember, grips are not too expensive and they are meant to be changed.
