CONFESSIONS OF A WRAP GRIP CONVERT
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.
