hello fellow republicans! well as you may know, these two brands produce grips that look very similar.

GOLF PRIDE:


SHARPRO:


i'm very curious as to how each compare in terms of feel and durability. one reason why i don't go immediately for the cooler-looking more branded golf pride; price. compared to GP's, Sharpros cost merely a fourth of it's price on ebay.

i've also heard that Sharpro actually owns the patent for them.

any reason why i shouldn't just make the jump to Sharpro?
thanks for the advice guys! Smile

in my uneducated and unbiased opinion, i feel that the sharpro's look like cheap knock-offs of the golf pride.

i havent used the sharpro, but based on looks alone, i would choose the golf pride.

bro, i found that getting grips from ebay is not really that cost-effective, unless you can and intend to DIY...

better off going to the clubfitter... i think Bob's got stock sharpro (met my neighbor who juz change his iron shaft there)... Honshin oso got this type of grip (as in their own brand)...

to check if grip is one piece or 2 piece construction. just press the butt. the hard ones are 2 piece construction and the single piece is softer (also the way to tell the real golf pride MC from the fakes).

why GP. they have a patented air cushion technology in all their grips which makes them softer. plus they have a formula on the rubber composition which makes the feel and the tackiness difficult to emulate. hence they need 2 piece construction to achieve the above.

whether its the real thing or the copy cat, you usually get what you pay for.

hmm interesting.. never heard of sharpro before.

did a search on the net and found that there's quite a fair bit of forums out there comparing between the two grips.

to each his own, both grips have their own share of supporters. it's really the price vs quality debate.
