GRians, your thoughts on which of these are your preferred grips?

Umm standard normal rubber grip? ....

But jokes aside, I am completely unfamiliar with different types of grips, what's the difference between the tour velvet/crossline and the normal grips that come stock with golf clubs?

p.s. I actually wanted to ask the diff between Tour Velvet and the grips on my Ikan Batang, but I have never noticed what grips (or even what brand) they are

Derek, I think a lot depends on feel and tackiness. Also, whether you prefer a grip which gives you more resistance when wet, e.g. for those with sweaty palms or end up playing in high humidity.

Your Ikan Batang probably comes with GP grips though I'm not sure which. Best for Boss to advise you Smile

Actually both GP & Lamkin produce good quality grips, it's just that we somehow see GP being featured on most golf clubs than the rest........

As for golf grips being tacky, it all boils down on how well / frequent we maintain them ~ take care of your equipment & it will take care of your game good putt

grips are super impt since they r what connects us to the club

i've tried many types of grips and Lamkin crossline is one of my favourites. For golfpride, i like the older version of multicompound.

Winn grips and Golf pride tour wraps are not really suitable in our humid climate cos they will feel slippery and also deteriorate more quickly
