    Too fancy for me. People would expect me to putt good if they saw that in my bag. :(

    Played with a guy in Laughlin that was using Lamkin Crossline jumbo grips. I swung them a few times and they felt great. Golf Galaxy is currently offering free install so I gripped up a couple of clubs and will give them a full range session latter this week.

    I love the GP plus 4’s and am excited they released the Tour Velvet in that model. Half the price of the MCC’s, going to give them a shot.

    Always had a hard time with jumbo grips, the added weight at the butt end always threw my swing off. I like Golf Pride midsize grips though, bigger size and not as heavy as other midsize grips.

    No idea..............but cheap is a magnet for me and as it turns out, they feel great if you like a velvet style grip.

    I've had one on since last year and you can't tell it from new. That's on my driver which gets a lot of use from hitting all those mulligans. I've just switched to a GolfPride Tour Velvet +4 because those are now in the "reduced taper" and I always liked the Tour Velvet. But I have another Sonar to put on if I don't like the Tour velvet +4 as much.

    Thanks. Lamkin used to make a micro groove style grip that I loved and the Sonar looks like a newer generation of that style. I am also looking forward to trying the plus grips with less taper, great concept and easier than doing tape layers under the lower hand.

    I've been a Lamkin Crossline guy for a long time now. However, I've wanted to try the Golf Pride +4s for their reduced taper. I finally tried one. I picked up a Tour Velvet midsize +4 and tried it this weekend. Like it a lot and will be switching the rest of my clubs over.

    Been a Lamkin customer for years. Got a little disappointed in them over the past couple weeks. They had a promotion where you could download a coupon for a free grip... from your local Lamkin retailer. If you liked the free grip, there was a second coupon if you bought 10 grips, you got another free one. Hmmm... 12 grips for the price of 10. Sounded like a deal to me.
    When I downloaded the coupons, it said my closest retailer was a Dick's in a larger community 50 miles to the east. I went to our local Golf USA. He said there was a huge buy-in and no guarantee of moving that many grips so he had passed. Went to the local Dick's. They no longer carry Lamkin. Only Golf Pride. So... I would have to drive 100 mile round trip to get two free grips. I understand gas is cheap right now. Not that cheap.

    Had one of those (in midsize) installed on my Cobra F9 Speedback at the factory as it was a no upcharge option. Have not played with it, but it felt way better than my previous Tour Velvets so I am looking forward to testing it out. Currently use both Lamkin Sonar and GP MC+4 in midsize on my clubs, but could be convinced to switch to these puppies if they can maintain the level of feel out of the box.

    These are my new favorite grip. Had the MCC +4 in midsize and loved it except I felt they got a little slick a little fast for a $12 grip. The TV +4 is perfect imho especially in midsize. Put one on my driver last year and have never swig better, it just comfortable. Ordered my new irons with these on them and the feel is simply perfect.

    If you play in the rain or have sweaty hands, try ostriche leather grips, I mean, you'll pay 2-3 grand up to $5k, but you'll have nice grips.
