Recent new golf grips exemplify the best of the old and new in this fundamental area of golf equipment, offering players many choices to get comfortable with the club in their hands.
The P2 Wrap is Pure’s tackiest grip. For 2012, the company has unveiled an eye-catching collection of colors and is emphasizing its efforts at grip customization with names and logos.
Pure advocates installation of its grip with an air gun, eliminating tape and solvent.
Cost is $6.49 for standard size.
Most grips are sold in standard, mid-sized and undersized versions. Some grips also are made in jumbo sizes. Virtually all grips are available in ribbed and round (no rib) versions.
How often should grips be changed? Generally, once-per-week golfers who sometimes hit range balls, might consider changing grips once a year. For golfers who play and practice more frequently, twice per year is a good idea.
