    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.
