The golf grip is the one point of contact between the golfer and the club, yet grips rarely get recognition.

According to Iomic, the newest version of the Sticky 2.3 is 30 percent firmer than the original Sticky 2.3. The Sticky family of grips from Iomic is popular in many countries. In 2013, Iomic grips were used by the winners of 53 professional events around the world, according to the company.

For 2014, the new 50-gram Sticky 2.3 is the headliner among Iomic grips. It is known for its feel and grip-to-grip consistency.

Cost: $15.99

Many players take grips for granted, never changing grips until they get slick. This can be a mistake. Some touring professionals change their grips every month or so. Their reasoning: They want to maintain the consistent feel of new grips, and they definitely don’t want grip pressure to be altered because the texture or firmness of the grips seems different.

Installation of grips at the beginning of the golf season generally is considered minimal maintenance. Several grip manufacturers recommend changing grips twice per year.
