Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts or PM's. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

Preferred Grip for you fine ladies and gentlemen

Trying to dial in grips for a new set of Titleist MBs 3-PW (with a 2 Iron T-MB). Obviously want to keep it official with the Tour Velvets, but have concerns about durability. <br />
<br />
Just wanted to get a feel for what everyone else uses from a grip standpoint, as I want to make the right decision and only do this once lol.<br />
<br />
Thank you for any insight!

    i'm on tour velvets on my irons, since i have newer clubs...but on my driver and 4W, i have put on Winn DriTac's. I'm a sweaty hand player who gets torn up by cords (and I like the cushiony softness)...but if you're looking for durability, these are not the grips to go with.

    Golf Pride New Decade, midsize, logos down. My hands sweat a lot starting with 65 degree weather so I like the cord. I want to focus on the clubhead for aligning my hands, not the grip. I replace the grips on the clubs I hit a lot at the range - sand wedge, 7 iron, hybrids and driver - every 6-9 months. Otherwise I replace them every other year or so, whenever I notice they're getting hard or slick.

    I recently replaced all my woods & iron grips with midsized Lamkin CROSSLINE ACE grips. I really like them and the price was right for 16 grips, since they were closing them out. I still have two spares, just in case I find another club to add to the bag.

    +1, just order 12 to regrip some clubs. great deal and they really are a nice grip. have some new decades on rocketbladez I just bought. they are pretty nice as well but I'm not paying $10 a grip when there are better ones available at a much more reasonable price.

    Like holding a kitten. Seems to lighten up my grip pressure, which is a good thing for me.<br />

    And they are really "tacky". Adds confidence in high heat or wet conditions

    Winn Dri-Tac here too. Feel is soft yet slip in wet conditions,and clean up is easy. The only down side i have found is they are not going<br />
    to last several years if you play often. They sure made a difference in feel for my achy wrists !

    I've been using Lamkin Utx for a couple of years, but it seems they changed the compound an they don't feel quite the same now. Firmer than before.<br />
    Trying GP G2 wraps for a bit, but not sure about them yet, a little too muted feedback.<br />
    I like the MCC's but 10$ a grip is ridiculous.<br />
    At that price, I'd rather spend more and go leather from best grips...

    I've been using the standard MCC +4's since they came out but have recently gone back the the regular MCC. I add 3 wraps of buildup tape rather than going to the midsize because I don't like the feel of the large butt. I still have the +4 on my Driver and FW's but I think I swing it a little bit free-er with the regular MCC. I had used Z-Cord/Cord for most of my life but they're getting to hard for me in my old age. I've got too many sore spots on my hands and joints that pop up spontaneously now. I'm nursing myself into the "house" these days, hoping to get another ten years in.

    Lamkin UTX wrap in irons / wedges. MCC +4 in Woods. UTX wrap remains sticky for a long time with periodic cleaning and holds up great in Florida humidity. Black maintains grip longer than blue to me and both have cords. Lamkin regularly puts huge discounts on these. <br />
    <br />
    I did buy 14 best grips last summer. Played for two months with them. They’re basically the same size as MCC +4. They’re soft without being spongy like a Dri Tech. I could spend two hours at range without my hands getting beat up at all. And a quick swipe with a damp towel brings awesome texture. By far best grips I’ve used in rain and humidity but I just ultimately didn’t like the bigger grip feeling in my irons.

    Lamkin has a “players cord” that i’ve discovered. Available in 4 flavors: <br />
    1. Standard round<br />
    2. Standard rib<br />
    3. +4 type in round<br />
    4. +4 type in rib<br />
    <br />
    Just bought some of the +4 round for some wedges and thinking these might be my new go to cord grips.
