Golf Pride Tour Velvet Cord Midsize

HappyGilmore22HappyGilmore22 Members Posts: 361 ✭✭✭✭

Any chance they are going to sell midsize in these again? It's only about the most popular grip on tour these days with so many guys changing to them, you think golf pride would sell them. Haven't tried the midsize z-cords mostly because it's distracting to look at and I don't like that. Currently still playing MCC's because I haven't liked any of the new ones to come out and tour velvets just don't last in the heat. Have tried regular size with enough tape to make them midsize but it stretches them out too much and I don't like the feel.

    I don't know if they discontinued it entirely but I know it's not on their website and I have not been able to find them online. At least not knockoffs. I know guys on tour still get them though.

    You mean the ones on the website under Tour Velvet? https://www.golfpride.com/grips/tour-velvet/

    The most popular grip in golf today combines an exclusive, state-of-the-art rubber-blend compound, non-slip surface pattern for maximum playability, comfort, and confidence. The Tour Velvet® is the standard upon which many club manufacturers base their grip designs.

    Wrong grip that you are thinking of. My thread was about the tour velvet cord. They make and sell them in regular size but not midsize. And adding tape to a regular does not work for this grip it feels terrible.

    Anybody tried the Lamkin Players Cord? They do have a Standard Plus size with less taper- not quite Mid-Size but closer. Cord is also less aggressive- almost like a Golf Pride BCT.

    Funny how you look at something and still miss a word. Yeah, unless you know someone from the Tour Van, you won't find the Midsize Cord any more. Z-Cord. The Lamkin Midsize cord fits small. You might have to go to the Oversize if you choose that grip. I switched to the Midsize MCC Align when they came out. Great grip.

    I think in a pinch you're probably best off going to the Lamkin Crossline Cord in Black (if you can still find it). It was the closest I have ever found as the Z-Cord is extremely rough and hard IMO compared to the TV cord. If you don't mind a reminder, Ping sells a Midsize TV cord in their stock grip under the Yellow code (Midsize). You can pick these up pretty cheaply direct from Ping through an authorized reseller like a proshop or golf store that has a Ping account.

    Just a heads up midsize tour velvet cord is available from Ping. Haven’t tried but usually you can just order grips from ping. They have the butt end painted yellow (gold colour code for midsize)

    Yeah the GP BCT full cord are definitely still around. I had a full bag of them not too long ago (until I went to midsize). https://www.grips4less.com/products/golf-pride-mens-tour-velvet-bct-cord. Looks like they even have the 58 core.
    My local shop says they probably won't come out with the midsize BCT cords. But who knows? tons of guys are switching back/still playing them.

    I would 100% use these if they came in midsize. I can never get the feel right building up standard grips to midsize with tape... I think it has to do with the side of the butt end cap in top hand.

    Grips aren't designed for added layers of tape under them, it totally changes them. I've tried the reg size full cords adding tape but it just firms it up too much. Makes it closer to the z-grip and I'm not a fan of them outside of maybe 2 months of the year when it's really hot out.

    They don't have any plans to sell them in midsize. I made a comment to them on social media earlier this year and they politely responded saying the demand isn't enough to justify it.
