    I've turned into a grip monster now that I have easy options to change. So to help me single out the best options on what you've tried, use etc etc. Thanks.

    I'm kind of interested in this one.

    Golf Pride MCC PLUS4 Standard Grip

    Favorite so far is the GolfPride Z-grip cord.

    Never could seem to have good luck with Golf Pride. Have used Lamkin for the past umpteen years. Personal pick is the Lamkin Crossline. But, I have never spent the money on the upper end, exotic material grips.

    I usually just buy grips as I need them from the local golf shop of from Dick's. Not too long ago, I did place an order directly with Lamkin for some they had on special. When I received the order, along with the grips were a couple bags of tees and an handwritten thank you note. That personal service went a long ways to convince me that I would remain a Lamkin customer.

    Sorry! Did not answer your question about the Golf Pride you linked to.

    Golf Pride CP2 and CP2 Pro, both midsize.. If I can't get those, Tour Velvet mids with two extra wraps down low to take out some of the taper.

    CP2 Pro and Wrap.

    Got this MCC Plus-4 on my driver, a Winn Dri-Tac on my 3-wood and a Z-grip cord on my hybrid. All turned out great using solvent. The special air gun hasn't come yet. So many grips to try, so little time.

    After I play these awhile, if I don't like one or two I'm going to try this one.

    That one looks interesting.

    I like the Dri-Tac because the humidity down here in the summer is aggressive and they help me keep a grip on the club.

    Used to game the Golf Pride MCC and they would get slick.

    The No. 1 grips got slick as well.

    Winn Dri-Tac FTW!!!

    I've got the Dri-Tac on my 3-wood. It does feel good (tacky). The GP MCC +4 feels really good on my driver. I'm sold on the "less taper" deal so before I put on the Z grip cord and Dri-Tac I put an extra wrap of tape on the bottom half of the grip. When any of these wear out (mid-summer?) or I don't like them before that I'll try the Lamkin Z5. This is FUN! :)

    I'm too neurotic to have mismatching grips.

    I pretty much stick with Lamkin Crosslines...however, I do really like the fancy one that came on my driver.

    I think it's like a Golf Pride MCC corded in red. Pretty sexy...but $10/grip? Got dayum son....

    I'm slowly moving my bag to Gripmaster. Expensive but quality. Driver and two wedges at the moment.

    This reminds me, my current irons still have the original MacGregor grips on them....

    One of those things where the first round of the year I tell myself, 'I should really change these', and then it gets close enough to the end of the season that I say, 'Meh, do it next year...'

    And it just never gets done. One of my wedges needs to be re-epoxied too. Should probably just replace them at this point. Cripes...I'm going to have to spend some money on my bag this year.

    Put new Golf Pride MCC +4 grips on sssmokin's drivers today. I'm sure glad I can do this now. When you re-grip yourself you can see what these other places do to your clubs. My driver had one grip put on before I changed it. They had a scratch on the shaft from using a box knife blade instead of the hook blade. On sssmokin's driver they just put another layer of tape over the old layer (never removed it). Now I know it's being done right. Also got a new Lamkin Z5 tour taper grip today. Nice! Will probably go to that after my MCC +4 wears out. Still haven't got my air gun from that place so PayPal is going to "collection" on them. Good to use PayPal.
