Working for Lamkin, I’m often asked to test out our new golf grips, and rightfully so! It’s one of the perks of the job. But testing out the Wrap-Tech golf grip was more of a stretch for me. I’m just not a wrap grip player. After a good deal of prodding, however, I finally threw them on my woods. I wish I would have put them on sooner. I’M CONVERTED!
Traditionally for me, cord golf grips that are very firm worked best. I bounced between the Crossline Full-Cord and UTx, switching back to Crossline in the end. I have a high swing speed, and sweat a lot. Which made traditional wrap golf grips a no-go. You can understand why I was hesitant to put our new Wrap-Tech on my gamers. Nonetheless, I obliged.
Uncommon in San Diego, I was faced with cold-weather, rain and wind in my first round out with the new golf grips. On the first tee, I pulled out my driver and was pleasantly surprised with the amount of tack and the feel of the grip. It basically stuck to my glove. My first drive was a bomb down the right side of the fairway. Great start, but I was going to need more convincing if these golf grips are going to end up on all of my clubs. It only took five holes until I was completely SOLD. [Not unlike Miguel Angel Jimenez who, after only 15 holes with Wrap-Tech on his clubs, made a hole-in-one] Monday morning was spent regripping golf clubs. My only regret is not switching to Wrap-Tech sooner.
