PostSubject: New grips!   Thu Oct 16, 2014 9:58 am

Thought it was about time to change my ancient grips and was surprised to see how many different options there were available (yes - it has been that long since I changed them!). I did a bit of looking around and in the end I settled on some Masda Slick Fit grips which are like nothing I've ever seen before - only a couple of grooves on the grip and made from slick racing tires I believe. Great choice of colours too! Ungloved grip felt great and I reckon with a glove on it will be even better. Benz over at torque golf is fitting them and I'm hoping to collect them tonight. Anyone else use these grips? Any feedback?

They are great grips. Sticky and tacky kind like iomic. You need to have rather deep pockets if you're changing the entire set.  Laughing

Benz has a good selection and the pricing is similar to what they have at FESC. Range from $12-20 for grips plus fitting. He is a great guy who knows what he is talking about. He even prepped one for me so I could feel to see if the grip was ok - he measured my hands as well to ensure the grip length was right. Decent service.

Tell me about it Abadan! Very Happy Were retailing at $20/grip but I've got the full set done at $18/grip. Worth the investment I think. Sometimes I think grips are probably overlooked by most hackers like myself.

Thanks! Yeah the price on these seems surreal. Want to try to see what the hype is all about.

If nobody is selling them in Sg I might bring a load back from Japan next time I'm there Wink

No1 grip i used to install at golfwerk at tpy range. Very grippy but wear out very fast. You can call them to check if they still bring in.

Am I right in saying that they their entire series is white with different logo colours? Might get dirty quickly too! Sad

I see, thanks for the info. Will check them out. JDM mastery in the forum never fails. Shocked

Wear out quickly is not necessary a bad thing, now my grips don't seem to wear out fast enough. Just kidding.

Cheers

If your grips aren't wearing out quickly enough play some more golf! Wink

Been playing with the new Masda grips for a week now and they are amazing. Cannot recommend them highly enough. Gloved or ungloved, wet or dry....the club is going nowhere! Well worth that bit extra.
