    I've played Iomic Stickies and NO1 Pros and they were great in terms of traction and no slippage. But my issue with both was the very quick wear. Both are silicone based elastomers which makes them wear and feel a little different than rubber grips. To me they grip better but wear out faster than rubber. Not worth it to me but neither is rubber. I much prefer GripMaster leather grips.
    Particularly if you don't play with a glove, IMHO I don't think there is a better grip than one made of leather. I haven't had mine long enough to vouch for their longevity, but supposedly they last much longer than rubber.




    I can vouch for the longevity of leather. After six years with GripMasters on my Mizunos they are still as good as brand new. Also my new Miura set has had some for two full seasons and again they play like newly installed.



    And rubber or any polymer is fated to decay as soon as UV light from the sun hits it. This, couple with the mechanical abrasion of your hands rubbing against the grip will cause them to wear faster. There is no way around this. Polymers are much more susceptible to UV light decay over leather.

    I have the Tour G 50s on a few clubs and really like them. Tackier and slightly thicker than GP Tour Velvet (I find GP TV too slick feeling). They are pricey but quite durable so far (almost 2 yrs)

    Had Tour G 50 cords on my clubs for most of 2018 - very little wear, great traction, good taper dimensions (mine were + 3 wraps) - probably my preferred grip. Using NDMC right now and they work but prefer the slightly firmer feel of Tour G 50 cords and the full cord.

    I’ve played iomics for close to 10 years now and everything, especially anything US made just feels like ****. So much feel and notbcrazy sticky for me.



    Just bought a new set of Epon 705’s and fitter was like “iomics for grip”?? Not even a question for me.

    I play perfect pro phiten cord for my irons and wedges. Not overly harsh and extremely durable. Have moved to caderos for my driver and hybrids. Hard to save unless you have an air gun. Very sensitive to solvent so tricky for installs. They look real cool though and are mid size unless you go for the ultra lite model.

    Muziik dry compound no taper.

    Perfect pro cord and rubber virtualy no taper.

    Iomic have none but are short.

    Stm are another super sticky grip but very thin, have to double up on tape here. But fantastic feel.

    Thanks. Yeah, I haven't seen the Level 4 dry compound before. They look the same, although I do like the Japanese characters on the itobori version. I'm not really that familiar with Japanese grips outside of iomic.

    Does anyone know if the Masda Slicks are still available? Can't find any, but I'm not the best at finding things.

    The Masda slicks are still available. Best bet is to ask Chris from Tourspec if he is willing to purchase them, or you can purchase from Rakuten. However, the dealers I am seeing on Rakuten don't ship EMS. So if you don't mind using a shipping service, you have the option for Rakuten.

    That's been my problem. Can't seem to find them available anywhere. Things can be hard to find on Rakuten even if I type "Masda slick". No returns. I'll keep trying.

    I’ve been using Iomics for probably 5 years now and I love them, I won’t go back to rubber. I like the feel of them and the wear is good!
