    Thanks to Golf Pride and Golfwrx for the chance to try and test the new Tour Velvet +4 grip.



    I got My delivery today and will be installing them tomorrow and playing Sunday.



    I currently play MCC +4 with two extra wraps under the bottom hand and will do the same on these.



    One thing I'm not too fond of at first glance is the "Tour Velvet" on the opposite side of the Golf Pride logo, wish it had been easier to install w/o a logo showing.



    Ok I got 27 holes in today with the TV +4 on my driver, 7 iron and lob wedge.



    One of the problems I’ve always had with the regular TV is they always feel slick, this is why I prefer the MCC +4, it feels more secure when I grip it....well I don’t know if it’s just me but the TV+4 feels a lot better then the stock TV, not as secure as the MCC+4 but way better then the stock TV. If I were to compare it I think it feels more like the Lamkin Crossline.



    I tried to show the traction on the standard TV and +4...to my eye it seems like the traction on the +4 is deeper then the standard TV.



    Overall this is a great improvement over the stock TV and may just be my future grip of choice.

    A very special thank you very much to Golfwrx, Golf Pride, and podcast GOAT Knudson81 for selecting me to review the new TV plus 4's.





    I wear a M/L Cadet Titleist Players glove (fits perfectly like skin) and normally get 2 to 3 extra wraps under standard GP grip. I have never used a +4 grip but love and play both TV and MCC's.



    Out of the package review for Looks: TV plus 4's look BEAST ( a very clean yet aggressive look using a great combination of colors that go well with each other)

    on club: I personally was never really bothered by any writing on grips, but if you are.. there's a whole lot of writing... Bellow is a comparison of the TV plus 4 and TV 360 logo down (you can be the judge and plan logo down or up when installing).

    full club from front:

    Feel:

    Just like the original TV 360, its very tacky and will fly in any weather. The best way to describe the lower hand, is it feels just like the TV 360 with 4 extra wraps, lol. Simply no other way to put it.



    Feel/ performance per club:

    This is where it got interesting. I might sound crazy but each club felt different. Below are my reviews per club:



    (as someone who puts 2 to 3 wraps under standard grip's, I put 2 wraps top to bottom for each grip)





    Vokey 60.12 D grind/ wedge flex - Love my wedges, wedge game, and practicing wedges.. Total feel/ tempo clubs for me.



    The TV plus 4 felt great. I could barely feel the lower hand being thick at address, but during the swing you can feel it. During the swing the thicker lower hand really gave me relaxed control of my shot from the top all the way through the ball.



    Close to the fringe/ no wrist hinge/ slide the club under the ball/ hop and little roll chip- When the lower hand was tapered(regular TV 360), I couldn't feel the club in the right hand which resulted in less control. With the TV plus 4's, this shot was really controllable since the lower hand is so thick. You can get aggressive and control the club with the results you want. I use to roll this shot short a lot due to fear, but now I can move it freely with confidence.



    Chips and Pitches - Before, I would swing down with some force for clean contact and the landing spot I wanted (which I get most times), but my roll was unpredictable. Sometime it rolls short or long depending on my force. But, with the TV plus 4, since you can feel it in the right hand the whole time, you can just swing the club head like a weight on a string. The swing speed is naturally the same and roll is very predictable.



    Full wedge shots- nothing too different in ball flight. feels, not different.



    all in all: a must have for wedges image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />





    TMB 7 iron/ S300- Love my irons, Iron game, and practicing Irons.. set up, back swing, transition, and tension/ tempo focused... ball flight: Draw to push draw ball flight.



    The TV plus 4 felt just ok (it didn't feel bad or great). My ball flight was the same and controllable. I really felt the 4 extra wraps under my right hand at the top of the back swing. Feels like you can stop the back swing length with your right hand when needed and also felt it was causing a late release through the ball. This could be a good thing or a bad thing, but will take some practice to get use too.



    all in all: 50 / 50 on the irons.





    Mizuno ST180 / Tensei white 70 s- Worst club in the bag but can manage on the course. Since it's the worst club, I naturally swing for the fences every time... Ball flight: Push draw to hook



    The TV plus 4's on the driver was not my fit. It felt like I was holding freshly picked jumbo corn at address in my right(lower) hand. In the back-swing and at the top, same feeling of holding jumbo corn, I couldn't control the low point, couldn’t release the club so my club face was de-lofting hard at impact.



    all in all: not for me (but if you have some big hands or or have a lot of force through the ball, it can be good.)



    thank you so much everyone and hope this helps. Please let me know if I left out anything.

    First of all thanks for the opportunity Golfpride and Golfwrx for giving me the chance to test and review the tour velvet Plus 4 grip. I have been waiting patiently for over a week when i got the email saying grips were ready to be shipped. Funny story, I did not read the full details of the contest and thought I was going to receive 13 grips, so I promptly removed all grips from my irons, haha. Anyway I have put the 3 grips I received on 3 of my irons and I am ready to go as soon as it quits raining. I currently play the MCCPlus 4s and love the taper grip. The tour velvets are the same but with the soft feel. I cant wait to play with them!

    Update 3/4/ Finally got to play 27 holes this weekend and the results were fairly good-41,36,37. I am playing with three of

    golfprides best grips, the tour velvet mcc plus4, the mcc and the mcc plus 4. First of all the I dont look down on my grips when I am playing so I dont care how many times they put their name on the grips. I love the taper of the mcc plus 4 grips as you can choke down on any club and get the same feel, which i think is important in shot making and keeping the hands out of the shot as much as possible. I love a tacky feel and this is where the tour velvet mcc plus 4 is lacking to me. I like all three grips, as each has a quality I like and could easily game all three.. I will play this combo set until I wear them down. Price is probably in the favor of the MCC tour velvet plus when I replace one, $6.19 vs $11.69, yes I like a good buy! Overall if I had to pick a winner it would be the MCC plus 4-tacky, taper and not hard on the hands. Thanks to Golfpride and Golfwrx for the opportunity!

    do you normally put any extra wraps of grip tape on your grips?



    if so, did you put the same number of wraps from the top of the grip to bottom or just the top hand(since the bottom is stock plus 4)?



    I normally put 2 wraps on standards and was wondering if I should put 2 wraps only on the top hand since its plus 4..

    First, thank you GolfWRX and Golf Pride for a chance to try these new grips.



    I have been using the Lamkin REL grip with two wraps of tape for years. The standard size in it feels like it sits between a GP Tour Velvet standard and midsize...which is about perfect for me. I've tried other grips, but never found one I like any better. When I heard about GP bringing the TV Plus 4 grips to the market, I was excited to try them and almost started doing the old Daniel Bryan "Yes" chant (WWE wrestling reference for non-fans) when I got the email saying I was selected as a tester.



    I'm building a set of r9TP irons and installed the new grips on the 7 iron and the PW. Label down with two layers of tape. The third grip is going on a backup shaft for my driver.



    I'll post some pics and start the review soon.

    I find it a little 'cheap' of Golf Pride, the dominant force in golf grips, to give just 3 grips away to each person. I appreciate that FREE is FREE but to be honest for what they get in return from the testers its a little poor. I appreciate that they've done the same in the Z Grip Align and very possibly others that I've not noticed but even so the actual cost to them is next to nothing and these poor testers are having to re-grip three of their own clubs, messing with the rest of their set so that they aren't matched. Come on Golf Pride give the guys a full 13 grips!



    I can't fault their products, but this strikes me as a little Kuchar-ish.

    Congrats! I currently play the tour velvets with +1 wrap. Curious for those that add extra tape if you will do the same for just the top half of the grip and leave the bottom half alone without adding an extra layer. I plan on buying these for sure!

    It was stated that the prizes for the give away were 3 grips for each winner. I wasn't interested in only 3 grips, so, I didn't enter. I think its great that there were 10 winners, and, I look forward to their reviews.

    Got mine yesterday and popped them on this morning. If it will ever stop raining, I'll get out and give them a test. They do feel firmer than the CP2 Pros I've been using for a few years.

    Thanks to GolfWRX and to Golfpride for the opportunity to review these new grips!



    UPDATE:



    Got a little range time along with 18 holes yesterday, 70 degrees and sun! Have my three grips (midsize) installed on Driver, 7i, & PW. Really, really like it on my driver. As mentioned earlier, feels a touch firmer than CP2 Pros (midsize). The Tour Velvets are actually a little bigger, which I really like. Feedback was very good and vibration dampening was excellent. Installed mine logo down, which is how used to always install Tour Velvets. A very clean look. Something the CP2's lack. I could see me using them on all my clubs except maybe my sand wedges. SM6's and CP2's feel phenomenally good to me.

    Golf Pride has a winner here and I have no problem recommending these to anyone.



    Thanks again to Golf Pride and to GolfWRX.

    Just landed in Phoenix and will get a chance to do some testing tomorrow. Have them on my driver, 7, and wedge, and I’ll be comparing against MCC +4 and standard tour Velvet 360 with some extra wraps

    I got my 13 test grips. Too much offset. Not strong enough for my swing speed. Sold them on the bay. Needed some new DG X7’s hardstepped 3x’s.....



    Seriously though, I received my 3 test grips yesterday. Going to install them on my gw, 7 and driver and should be able to give them a go tomorrow. Full Review coming soon.

    I’ve had a chance over this last weekend to do some testing with mine, and it’s likely that I’ll be ordering 10 more of these for the rest of my clubs.



    I never really liked the MCC +4 because the bottom half always felt too soft/too squishy almost. I preferred the standard tour Velvet feel, but I enjoyed the build up on the bottom hand. The TV +4 offers the best of both worlds. To me, its the same exact feel as the standard tour Velvet, just with the thicker bottom hand. They feel great.



    The one thing I wish I could change is the writing on the underside of the grip. It looks a bit strange and basically forced you to install logo up. I have no problem going logo up, but some that are picker than me may be turned off by it.

    I had a long practice session yesterday and had the TV + 4 on my driver, 7 and GW.



    I’ve always preferred the texture of Tour Velvets and have played the standard size or undersized. I have small hands (Small Cadet Glove) and never liked the MCC. Last year I tried the TV align but the big red line got visually annoying so I moved back to the TV with a rib.



    Looks: The Branding is so over done on this grip. Just on the grip it says “Golf Pride” 4 times!!! “Plus 4” 2 times, Tour Velvet 2 times and the size one. Very different that the traditional simplicity of the Tour Velvet. I prefer a clean look when I look down. So much so I installed the test grips logo RIGHT. See picture below



    Feel: They feel great. Classic Tour Velvet feel and in my opinion the lower half is firmer than the MCC + 4 which I thought was too soft.



    I really liked the TV +4 on my driver and I will be putting these grips on all my woods.



    I might put them on my irons. If they come out with an undersized I would put them on my irons and wedges in a heartbeat.



    All in all, I really like them and I think it will be a popular grip but, they are so over branded.

    Did anyone use extra wraps of grip tape?



    if so, was it on the whole grip or just half?



    any advise for the people installing in the future?

    Might go back and add a third. I’m gonna hit them some first though.

    Yes, install was easy but I only used layer of tape. I did stretch the GW grip down more thank the other two just to test since I have baby hands.

    Sorry but i’ve been sick since Sunday, I did install the grips on my driver and wedges on Monday but a sour throat and fever are stoping me from properly test the grip, first impression is very good and I really like the feel of them.

    I don’t know if it’s just me or if anyone else got the midsize but the butt sizes feel bigger than the tour wrap midsize.

    I’ll give you more info as soon as I can swing a club.

    Cheers

    Any updates??? Also how is the bottom of the grip is squishy like mcc +4 or is it firmer.

    Yes, I got a full review for driver/ 7i/ 60 wedge which I will try to post by today.



    Yes, the bottom is firm and tacky like the TV 360... which I love.

    To me, it doesn’t feel nearly as squishy as the MCC +4 which is the primary reason I never used it. They really found a nice balance between hard and swishy.

    Got my delivery and thank you to Golf Pride and Golfwrx for the chance to try and test the new Tour Velvet +4 grip.



    Have not got a chance to game it yet because of the rainy and cold weather here, and have to wait for the solvent and grip tape.



    I installed the three grips on my driver, my driving iron and a wedge, is kind a weird now that i have a different grips on my 3 clubs. I have been playing for 15 years and never have diff grips on my clubs.



    But will see, i think the grips are too busy, i prefer the old tour velvet which i been using for years,

    They look great. Would love to see GP make them in the 360 style.

    I find it a little 'cheap' of Golf Pride, the dominant force in golf grips, to give just 3 grips away to each person. I appreciate that FREE is FREE but to be honest for what they get in return from the testers its a little poor. I appreciate that they've done the same in the Z Grip Align and very possibly others that I've not noticed but even so the actual cost to them is next to nothing and these poor testers are having to re-grip three of their own clubs, messing with the rest of their set so that they aren't matched. Come on Golf Pride give the guys a full 13 grips!



    I can't fault their products, but this strikes me as a little Kuchar-ish.


    You could look at it that way, or you could look at it as a chance for people to give new products a try, and if they don't like the 3 tester grips, they only have to replace those 3 instead of all 13. And hey, nobody's being forced to sign up. Just sayin'...

    I spent some time at the range today practicing in between lessons.



    I love the feel of these grips. They have just the right amount of firmness. Not to soft, but definitely not the hardness of a cord grip.



    I will make an amendment on an earlier comment. No way I could play these with three layers. Two full layers is too much. The size with the extra tape makes them hard to release. Once I got to hitting them side by side with my Lamkin grips, I realized how big they are. I’m going to pull the grip off my 7 iron and then reinstall with only one layer and then see how it feels. It could partially be the Modus shafts. I haven’t measured them or checked specs, but they’ve always felt they had a bigger butt diameter than my old DGS300s.



    The extra logo is hard to notice now. I guess I’ve gotten used to seeing the Lamkin logo on my grips so that the “Tour Velvet” script looks small and doesn’t bother me at all.

    Oh good to know I usually play 1 extra wrap w/ the velvets and I do have the Modus 125 shafts. I thought for sure I was gonna get these but I’m more reserved now with the concerns of releasing the club!

    I would test one club with no extra grip tape to get the feel... I put 2 extra wraps and for me, wedge was normal release, 7i was late release, driver was “can’t” release.

    Does the top of the grip feel thicker than the standard tour Velvet? Or the same? Curious about adding an extra wrap on just the top half instead of the whole length

    To me, the top half felt the same at address.



    Once I started swinging with the driver and the thickness started over powering my swing, I felt it was just too much grip as a whole(guess it’s a feel thing).



    I would highly recommend only extra wrapping the top half or none at all to start.



    Shakey’s regripping and cant wait for his review... maybe less grip tape all together is the key.

    I finally got to hit a few balls today with the new Tour Velvet Midsize plus4.

    It’s been a rough week. Got a major cold and a nasty spider bite on the trapezoid.

    But I’m better now, except the spider bite, and ready hit review the grips.

    I normally play Golf Pride Tour Wrap midsize with 2 wraps all the way down.

    I install the grips on my driver and my wedges, 1 wrap on the driver, 2 on the wedges.



    Look: Consistent with the Tour Velvet except the gray cap.



    Feel: I do think the top hand feels bigger than the Tour wrap, apart of that I like the feel and the firmness of the grip.



    Driver: I think the bottom hand is to larger for me and makes it hard to turn the head over, not sure it’s for me.



    Wedges: Now I love them on the wedge, I play every iron an inch long and love to grip down on them, the plus4 make it very easy to move your hand up and down the grip, I like that for chipping.



    So I will keep those grips on my wedges but will go back to the Tour Wrap midsize on the driver.

    Thanks golfpride and golfwrx for the opportunity.

    Yes, just to be clear a total of 2 layers on wedges and 1 on driver.

    Just installed these on my Driver, 3i, 7i and 58deg. Waiting for them to dry so I can go swing them. Ended up going +1 wrap on the top half of the grip. Since I usually play +1 extra wrap on the regular velvets.

    Follow up from previous review.



    I played a full 18 the other day with mine. Love this grip on my driver. No extra wraps as I have small hands. I also stretched the grip down just a little bit more. I was hitting wonderful drives right down the middle all day so the grip may have helped me avoid my miss which is a hook.



    Wasn't crazy about it on my irons but I know I will be installing them on my woods. Wedges I could go either way.



    All in all, I think this grip will fit a ton of golfers. Now if we could just get an undersized version......

    After testing these they are going on all my clubs! I was able to work the ball both ways with all my club and didn’t have a problem releasing the clubs. They felt great in my hands reduced some of the flipping of the club in hands and the tension of over gripping that I tend to do sometimes. On the wedges it felt nice gripping down on them. Ended up going plus 1 wrap on the top of the grip.

    These are very high on my list for my next regrip. Currently have the mcc+4 aligns and the align the check definitely helped my grip, now I think the texture of the TV will be much better for me too.



    Good thoughts and reviews so far!

    if you are already gaming the MCC+4 and you loved the TV texture.. you will love the TV+4, it's a great combination and great grip.



    I moved all 3 to my wedges and love them.

    I’ve yet to pull mine and reinstall with less tape, but I noticed something earlier today when I was moving my clubs around.



    I got my irons in October and have played 22 holes with them and had multiple range sessions. My Lamkins feel amazingly slick already.



    Keeping that in mind, the texture of the TV feels 10 times better. If the size is right after the reinstall, I’ll probably go ahead and swap over. It all comes down to the size. If they are still too big, I might go to regular TV again and figure tape build up out and be done with it.
