Alternative to PURE grips?


iodje123

Recommended Posts

I found out sadly my favourite grips company PURE grips is shutting down. I liked them not only because of the easy swap outs but because they were durable, comfortable and didn't destroy my hands. 

 

To those that have used them, are there any other alternative brands that are similar? I saw Iomic that look visually similar, but have no information on them.

 

Thanks

I love PURE grips as well and have played the Pure Pro in standard on all of my clubs for a couple years now.

 

I've tried the Star Sidewinder. Feel and comfort wise they're very comparable however the Stars in standard size felt noticeably smaller than the PUREs in standard. If you play standard in the PUREs, I'd suggest sampling the Star in both standard and mid size to see which you like better.

Thanks - I did play standard so will both before getting a set

I would definitely say Iomic & No1 grips are going to be pretty close. I’m a golf pride guy personally, but am so tempted to throw on a set of bright blue grips from either of those two brands. Pure’s always looked cool, sad to hear they’re closing up shop.

Also a Pure grip fan and user.  I read a while back that the owner of Pure grips was with Star and left to do their own thing with better marketing.  Unfortunately my favorite is the Pure Combo and Star doesn’t make anything like this.  I’ve had Iomic grips and they were softer and didn’t hold up as well as the Pure grips if memory serves.

I read that Star is planning a new model like this one for 2024. Keep an eye out. Their Sidewinder and Classic Wrap are great grips so I expect the new model will be high quality.

I would say there is no closer grip to Pure. I currently have sidewinder midsize on my clubs and had to add two layers of painters tape to the bottom hand. This made them feel standard midsize to me. 
 

Pure is great, but star is right up there with Iomic and No. 1 grips. If you ever don’t like the feel, just wipe it down and it’s back to perfect. 
 

good luck on the switch

There was a bit more to the story.  Former employee left, appropriated the client list without permission, started Pure.  So went the buzz on golf forums at the time
