Golf Pride is looking for 20 GolfWRX members to test either the new Tour Velvet Plus4 or ZGrip ALIGN swing grips. Each tester will receive 3 swing grips for their driver, iron and wedge.

About Tour Velvet Plus4

With research showing that more than 90% of Tour players build up their grips, Golf Pride created Plus4 Technology, simulating adding four extra wraps of tape in the lower hand. The reduced taper profile promotes lighter grip pressure for more power. Tour Velvet Plus4 offers the same great Tour Velvet feel, now with Plus4 Technology!

About ZGrip ALIGN

Golf Pride’s ALIGN Technology delivers consistent hand placement and improved clubface awareness throughout the swing with a dedicated raised ridge down the back of the grip. ZGrip ALIGN, the first full-cord model to feature ALIGN Technology, delivers a firm feel and maximum surface texture for playability in all weather conditions.

How to Apply
  • In a post below, leave your City & State.
  • Tell us which grip you want to test - model & size (both grips are available in Standard and Midsize).
  • Tell us why you want to test your selected grip.

Selection Process

Golf Pride and GolfWRX will evaluate the applications and select 10 testers for each grip model after the thread is closed in 2 weeks. Those selected will receive a total of 3 grips to put on a driver, iron and wedge. Testers are required to grip clubs themselves or at a local clubfitter.

    • This is my preferred grip (non align). Im a full cord kinda guy. Now that this grip comes with the align I think it can only help! Gives me proper hand placement on on a grip I trust in any weather here in NC. I have a tendency to get my right hand way too strong, baseball grip.

    OMG I just had my driver reshafted the other day and mentioned this exact thing! Tour Velvet +4!!! I also think this could be hugely beneficial in a 360 design for the adjustable drivers.

    The tour velvet - midsize

    I have played every other grip over the years and cannot find an ultra comfortable grip that just allows me to swing. I am a very "mental" player, in a bad way, because everything has to be pleasing to the eye and touch in order to let my mind relax. I would love to try these grips in order to see if my score can improve. Thank you

    • Have always had to build up my grips, to get more size under my right hand. Would like to avoid this and always liked the feel of the all rubber Tour Velvet.

    Tour Velvet Plus4 Standard

    I have been a long time Golf Pride user and switch back and forth between tour velvet and tour velvet cord. I typically build my grips up a couple of wraps so this would make re-gripping easier. Sounds like the perfect grip for me!

    • Z-Grip Cord Align - Standard
    • I game the Z-Grips currently, not a better grip out there. But, I recently (7 days ago) tested some new Callaway clubs that were using the align technology and I was blown away with how easy it was to know where the face is. I thought it would be amazing to have the Z-Grip with align. Little did I know, when placing my order for '19 Apex Pros I went on Golf Prides website and saw the new Z-Grip Align! Unfortunately, Callaway is not offering them right now, and I had to get my normal Z-Grip Cords. However, if I could test these, and they prove beneficial, I will surely be switching the set to them.

    Z-Grip Cord Align - Standard

    I have been playing Z-Cords for a few seasons now, I have always preferred a cord grip because I feel that they provide me the best stability, but have been interested in how the GP Align function would work for me with that positive reinforcement built into the grip. Now the 2 have become 1.

    Tour Velvet Standard

    After testing quite a few grips over the last few years, I have settled on Tour Velvet as the all around favorite. The Plus 4 will be perfect for when I choke up on wedges or driver for added control.

    Srixon has new versions of the Z-Star and Z-Star XV for 2019 and we need 15 GolfWRX members to text them out! The 15 members who are selected need to be able to play the ball in a few weeks when they receive them in order to write their review. Below is a little description from our article on the new balls and you can read more about the Srixon Z-Star and Z-Star XV here.

    The new Z-Star debuts the company’s new FastLayer Core. The core starts soft in the center and gradually becomes firmer around its edge, which aims to enhance ball speed for maximum distance performance, while still maintaining feel at impact.

    The Z-Star Series also features a new Spin Skin technology with Slide-Ring Material (SeRM), which is a urethane compound that coats the cover of each ball. The combination of technologies has allowed Srixon to use greater levels of shearing force without breaking its molecular bonds and is designed to offer golfers a golf ball that digs deep into wedge and iron grooves, increasing friction and spin, and thus, providing more control and stopping power.


    In a post below, please answering the following.

      • ​City, State
      • Handicap
      • What model ball (Z-Star or Z-Star XV)?
      • Current ball used?
      • Do you agree to be part of a GolfWRX Member review thread for Srixon golf balls and add you review, photos, stories and updates?

    Testers will be chosen in 1-2 weeks!
