Best golf grip for cold winter weather

I have heard that corded grips are less effective in the winter time as they tend to get too harsh and slippery. Same for traditional rubber grips.

Can anyone recommend grips that remain tacky during the winter months? I hear the Golf Pride 2G is an option, but looking for some input from others, especially for later model grips as I have not researched newer models in awhile.

Thanks in advance !!

    What are you wearing on your hands? I haven't seen much degradation on grip performance in any weather I would play... (down to about 30). I play the Lamkin Z5 grips.

    I wear Zero Restriction Windstopper gloves on both hands below 40 degrees.

    I use the FJ winter gloves and have had no issues with grip... with the Z5, UTX and Tour wrap. Maybe the gloves?

    Interesting choice - good in cold? Seems to be a nice fit.

    Was going to say this or the regular Lamkin Sonar. The sonar is a little softer than the tour, it may give a little more grip in the cold when materials get firm but either way these are both great grips that I think will do well when cold.

    I use the same cord grips year round. No problems with slipping. Being in Maryland I see differing weather and, yes, the grips will feel different in winter vs summer but I accept it. I second the prior statement about ZR Windstopper gloves. These work great in any weather I can endure but still give great feel vs other brands.

    I’ll second the Tour Wrap 2G or my personal favorite, PURE Wrap. Soft, tacky, and you can get them in quite a few colors.

    I should add they work well in wet and cooler weather with my FJ rain gloves.

    Thanks, all for the comments. I spoke with the Lamkin rep. yesterday, and he believes that the regular Sonar would be better than the Tour in cold weather. He was kind endough to offer to send me one of each to sample.

    For the Lamkin Solar, is it the "standard" or the "wrap" style that is better in cold?

    Big winter gloves call for big Grips. Try Bryson Dechambeau's jumbo max.

    They're pricey because they work. I think I ordered mine through Amazon and paid much less.

    Today I played in low 30's temperature with 20-30 mph winds wearing FJ WinterSof Gloves. This was the first time that I've used these gloves. They were outstanding. My hands were completely warm and there were absolutely no grip issues. Is there something special about the Zero Restriction gloves that makes them worth 2 pairs of the Footjoys? I'm not being sarcastic. After playing today, I decided that I want to have a backup pair of winter gloves in my bag in case I tear one mid-round. I was just going to buy another pair of FJ's. But, if there is something better, I'm certainly open to trying them.

    I like the ZR gloves because the hi-tech Gore material allows the gloves to insulate and be thin enough so you don't lose feel. They literally are the thickness of a regular golf glove. Plus they have the normal velcro closure where the Footjoy has an elastic neck which makes putting on and off more difficult. Plus it binds when you are dressed for cold conditions. The Footjoy seems like a rain glove but with fleece lining on the back of the hand. The ZR has a rubbery texture that allows for good traction. Yes they cost more than the Footjoy but that's a value decision. Currently available from Amazon for $44. Photos attached.

    How are they for warmth? I started researching them and keep seeing reviews that think of them as a great rain glove, but not warm enough to be a winter glove.

    FWIW, while I was doing that research, I found that Footjoy just came out with a new winter glove that appears to be a combination of the Zero Restriction and their old glove. They have a fleece back and velcro enclosure. But, the palm of the glove is cabretta. It's now called StaSof Winter Glove. At $50 per pair, the MSRP is less expensive than the ZR. But, given Footjoy street pricing, it's going to end up being more expensive.

    I received my care package from Lamkin. Just had the regular Solar grip installed on my driver. I'm playing tomorrow and will give my review accordingly.

    I would rate them as equal for warmth. My hands stay comfortable with either but the big difference for me is the bulk. Getting a tee or ball marker out of my pocket is a pain with the Footjoy gloves but simple with the ZR. And as I previously stated if you take the Footjoy gloves on and off when putting its a bit awkward compared to the ZR. In my experience every ZR product I've used appears to be designed by actual golfers as they simply perform as expected. You will pay for that performance however.

    Never heard of anyone changing grips over summer to winter. I use tour wrap and love the squishy softness in all weather.
