I’m sure when you clicked on the article, you probably said “WOAH!”. Aren’t these seriously the coolest grips you’ve ever seen?
Thick and gorgeous, the JumboMax grips are more than just something to look at. You know how you squeeze a skinny grip and your hands start to ache after taking some swings?
Well, with the JumboMax Grips, you’ll never have to worry about aching ever again. They’re thick and soft, so you can squeeze the club better.
This helps you generate more power with your swings. You’ll certainly get more distance off the tee.
The grips are in the wrap style and are made out of rubber. The wrap style will help get your hands around the club in proper gripping position while the rubber feel will help make your hands stick to the club with no worry of slippage.
Are your hands small like mine? No problem, because the JumboMax grips feature three different sizes, based on your glove size.
So, if you wear a small sized glove, then you could go with the small size for example. The other two sizes are medium and large so this helps give you a little variety to choose from.
Some of the big names that use JumboMax grips include Bryson DeChambeau, the NCAA champion who uses clubs with the same length and rocks the old school golf cap and Mike Dobyn who won the 2007 Re/MAX Long Drive Championship. Among others, NBA legend Rick Barry who is arguably the greatest free-throw shooter of all-time, also uses JumboMax grips.
JumboMax’s concept was simple, yet brilliant. Think about a tennis racket for example.
When you hold most rackets, they feel pretty good in your hands right? That’s because of how thick and soft they are and they help generate more powerful shots.
Also another good example is an aluminum baseball bat. The grips on some of them are also thicker, although not quite like a tennis racket but pretty similar.
Heck, even a table tennis racket has a thicker grip (Love me some table tennis! Used to play a little in high school)! So, “why not golf” they thought?
And I think it was a brilliant idea. You’re taking a lot of swings out there on the golf course and the driving range so why should your hands ache or have blisters?
Another thing that makes the JumboMax grips so cool is that you probably don’t even need a glove to use them! I’m someone who loves to wear a glove when taking swings but since these grips are so soft and thick, a glove may not be necessary.
These grips also give you the chance to use the famous ten-finger/baseball grip. Since the grips are so thick, why not wrap all your fingers around it and take a whack?
JumboMax also has a couple of stylish putter grips you can get as well. These are are also fairly thick and feel solid.
Overall, the JumboMax grips are game changers. It may take a short time to get used to them since you’ve been using skinny grips for so long.
But, once you do get used to them, you’d be surprise at how much extra power you can generate. Just squeeze and let it rip (Did that sound wrong?)!
I’d recommend finding a place that may let you test them before you buy as it is a transition.
To me personally, these are one of the best grips I’ve ever felt. If you get a chance to test them, then I think you’ll really enjoy these.
Bye bye blisters!
