Winn DuraTech golf grips
Wednesday, January 15, 2014
There are plenty of new advances in grips to captivate golfers’ interest. The landscape includes new colors, new innovations, new materials and a startling variety of grips that should allow any golfer to find the right one.
The DuraTech is a revolutionary grip for Winn because it fuses separate materials for top and bottom portions of the grip. The upper hand features Winn’s proprietary rubber compound called Elastom ETX, designed to provide durability and non-slip texture. Meanwhile, the bottom hand is made of slightly softer WinnDry XT polymer for a tacky and responsive feel.
Winn designed the DuraTech with a weight of 45 grams. Grip weight has become an important topic because it can affect the overall weight, swing weight and balance point of a golf club. Among standard-size grips, weights vary from 22 grams to a 92-gram grip.
