REVIEW: Best Grips bring style and unique feel to golf

 

Best Grips is the name of the company that makes grips that feature terrific design combined with great feel. They are able to back up their name, as the grips really are good on the hands.

 

Featuring a leather design, the traction is different from other grips and is effective on the swing. The grip you see pictured is the “Augusta” design and as you can see, with the green leather and yellow stitching, it reminds you of The Masters and famed Augusta National.

Heading to the range, trying the grip for the first time, I was impressed with how it felt with and without a glove. One thing I noticed immediately was, after hitting several balls, I had no blisters (I wasn’t wearing a glove at the time).

This is a major plus for those who may feel a glove could be too “heavy” or “thick” on their hand, making things a little uncomfortable. If you fancy no gloves, this is a very solid grip.

If you do wear a glove, it’s just as good. The stitching on the back really make an impact on the grip and this is a plus for glove wearers.

Without the stitching, the club may be harder to hold on to. It would be still be a solid, but just a little harder to hang on to.

So, not only does the stitching go beautifully with the design of the Augusta grip, it has an impact on keeping the grip in your hand. After all, we as lame golfers are prone to the slipping of clubs out of our hands, causing property damage.

Overall, the grip is great and if you appreciate artistic design, cool leather, and a unique feel, this is a fine grip. They even have grips made with pigskin (Their football grip) and another one with alligator skin.

Review: Golf Pride Pulls Out Unique Style With MCC Plus 4s

MCC Plus 4

Golf Pride has become a powerhouse in the golf equipment industry. For many years, their grips have been the highest rated on the PGA Tour.

They’ve become one of the most iconic names in the history of golf when it comes to equipment. Now, they’ve come back once again with the fire.

The brand new MCC Plus 4’s just might be their best grips yet. There’s a couple of cool features that makes gripping a club so much less stressful on the hands.

One of the things that you’ll notice right away away is how much thicker these grips are. What makes this so great is that it’ll make things more comfortable for your hands and in return will help you take more powerful swings.

Aching hands can be stressful on the whole body so if the grips aren’t comfortable, your swing will become less powerful. The MCC Plus 4 grips make sure you don’t have to worry about this.

They feel terrific and much different from other Golf Pride grips that I used in the past. What helps this even more is the style of them.

The rubber of the grips are unique and helps make them feel much more softer than most grips. One of the signature features of the MCC Plus 4s is the larger lower hand.

The lower hand on a lot of grips tend to be too skinny. The MCC Plus 4s are much bigger which works excellently with short game play.

In most cases, when you’re pitching, chipping or taking a flop shot, choking a little on your club can help you hit more accurate shots. Since the MCC Plus 4s are large enough to get your hands in a relaxed position to hit that perfect short shot.

The top of the grip also feels a little bit larger which is great for that extra comfort. This helps when you want to hit that powerful drive or hit that accurate iron shot from the fairway.

A style feature of the grips are Golf Pride’s signature multicolored look. This should be very familiar to fans of Golf Pride.

Overall, I was quite impressed with the MCC Plus 4s and I personally think it was a smart move on their part to make the grips thicker. A thicker grip really helps take the aching out of your hands to help you play your best.

If you don’t feel ready to get a set, I’d recommend going to a local golf store and getting a “feel” for the grips yourself. Or you can start off with an individual grip first.

This is what I do. I also make sure I’m putting that one grip on my favorite club and you should too (In my case, it’s the pitching wedge. We learn something new everyday don’t we?).

LoudMouth Releases Putter Grips With Magnetic Ball Markers

Pure Awesomeness

Pure Awesomeness

LoudMouth putter grips? WHAA?! Yup, the same company that created the wacky, fun, colorful pants, shorts, hoodies, etc is back and better than ever. This time, with one of the most unique putter grips to date.

They’re just as fun and colorful as the pants you love. They also include a feature never before seen on a putter grip but I’ll get to that in minute.

I decided to go with the Shagadelic color (Pictured) which has always been a personal favorite style of mine from LoudMouth for some time. I also decided to go with the jumbo size because I think it’s important to have some extra space for your hands while putting.

The first thing you obviously noticed is its wacky style which LoudMouth is famous for. Very beautiful and would stand out on any and every putter on any and every golf course.

The feel of the grip is spectacular. It’s very comfortable, stress free and has a nice scaly kinda feel. Almost like the snake skin feeling you find on some of the more expensive grips except it’s not.

The look and the colors of it just make it feel that much sweeter.

Now, to the coolest part of this unique flat stick grip. The grip comes with a custom ball marker.

Oh, no not just any ball marker though. This ball marker is magnetized on the top of your grip.

Yup, yup, that’s right. It sticks to the top of your grip, matching the same beautiful color of the grip itself.

It’s LoudMouth’s revolutionary TourMARK series of grips.

Yup, ball marker on top!

Yup, ball marker on top!

So, when you need to line your putt up and need to read the slope of the green, all you have to do is pull this beauty off the top and put it back on when you’re done.

Simple.

So, long gone are the days where you have to dig through your pockets full of lint, coins, tees, dirty golf balls, etc just to pull out the ball marker.

Nope, all you have to do is pull the marker that firmly stuck on top of your beautiful grip.

And ball markers are more important than you think. As mentioned, you need one to be able to read the green design better or just to simply move your ball out of the way when others are putting.

Sure, you can read the green with the ball sitting there like I might do sometimes but the ball can block the starting point of the slope which is important to read in order to sink putts. And you want to sink putts right? I sure hope so!

So it’s nice to be able to just pull the ball marker right off of your putter instead digging through your bag or your pocket for it. Besides, if you’re playing with a partner, the last thing you want to do is start fishing out for a ball marker and wasting time.

I mean, what if you were playing with your grumpy face boss or you were on a date with a girl (Unless you’re a female then obviously you’d be with a man)? The boss will think you’re slacking like you do at work and the girl will be playing with another guy by the time you find your marker.

Sure, you can use a penny or a dime that’s “top of the line” but real ball markers are just sexier and the ones that are attached to these beautiful grips are just that.

Lost one of your markers? No problem, LoudMouth has recently started selling replacement markers so that way you don’t have to worry about getting a whole other grip so you can get the marker back.

LoudMouth never seisez to amaze with the ideas they come up with and to me personally, it’s terrific for the style of the sport of golf. This brilliant, yet simple idea is unlike anything in golf and the TourMARK grips leave their mark on the most important club in the bag.

Review: SuperStroke Releases Grips for Irons, Driver, etc

Oooh, pretty colors!

Oooh, pretty colors!

You know SuperStroke. You know, the rapdily growing, crazy popular golf grip company known for it’s oversized putter grips? Well, the company made popular by Jordan Spieth and Jason Dufner has decided to create some grips that you can use for ALL of your clubs.

So now you’ll have one of their wonderful putter grips on your putter and some regular grips for your irons, driver, etc. The TX1 Premium Golf Club grips from Super Stroke are just as unique as their puffy, fluffy putter grips.

The first thing you’ll notice with the TX1 grips is the beauty of them. These are very colorful, bright, smack in your face grips that will stand out among other golf clubs at the course.

The bottom of the grip features the popular and always terrific rubber feel. Always a nice feature to help get your dominant in a comfortable position to execute the perfect shot.

Now the top of the grip is what makes the TX1 grips stand out from others. It’s the most colorful part of the grip and the material is unique.

The top part of the grip has somewhat of a soft cloth feeling or a soft carpet feel. This really helps get your hands in a comfortable state because it’s almost as if one of those furry kind of blankets are wrapped around it.

It really is a comfortable feeling and I don’t have to worry about how my hands feel. Instead, I can just focus on the shot I need to hit.

SuperStroke never seems to disappoint and they have risen to become one of the hottest golf companies around. But now, since they’ve spreaded they’re wings and decided to throw some regular grips into the mix, it just makes SuperStroke that much better.

The TX1’s are great grips that are really good for wedges I must say as well.\

Now, if only they made the TX1’s as fat and puffy as their putter grips! Hmmm….

You can get the TX1 grips at SuperStrokeUSA.com

Review: Champ’s new grips stick to your hands purely

Oooo so colorful! I had the black color.

Oooo so colorful! I had the black color.

 

Champ, the company known in golf for their popular FLYtess, spikes for golf shoes and other excellent accessories. They also carry some grips and they are a lot better than you think.

 

 

I changed my old grips on a couple of clubs and put on Champ’s C8 grips. I was quite excited to put them on some clubs for the first time as I had the chance to feel and take practice with the grips alone.

 

Once I got them on the clubs, I waited about an hour before trying them (Typical time for grip changing) and once I finally had the chance to try them; wow, I was impressed. The grips felt like they stuck to my hands and I felt very confident with my swing.

 

The grip wasn’t an issue. The grip felt like a magnet on my hands and they felt quite comfortable as well. I was able to take solid, full swings without having the squeeze the crap out of my club.

 

They feel extra great on short irons. You’re able to just focus on your approach shots rather than how hard to squeeze your clubs. This helps make sure that you don’t swing too hard and over hit your shots.

 

They felt wonderful in my hands and went together very well with my glove. These grips are great if you want it to just stick to your hands like glue.

 

With these grips, all you need to do is focus on your swing, shot shaping possibilities, the course layout and design, and hitting that perfect. No worries about the club flying out your hands or anything like that.

 

I definitely recommend these grips if you want to hit better shots. However, try it on one club first before you get a whole set of them.

 

Would hate to see you get a bunch of them and then end up disliking them so try it one club first. I really do believe you will enjoy them and how they feel in your hands.

 

Grips are very important in golf and are overlooked. While your buddies’ clubs will be flying in all directions, you’ll be dodging like a ninja while nailing shots with your new grips.

You can get Champ’s C8 grips here.
