Dragon Skin 360 grips - 2024 Charles Schwab Challenge


Recommended Posts

$18 per grip is a tall ask with the plethora of other high quality grips from more established brands on the market.  Maybe they are great, but I most likely will never know.

I tried one of their grips -- the red one from this post: 

 

It was actually pretty impressive! It was firmer, and the texture really stood out -- a lot like using a corded grip, without the actual cord. But it was fairly tacky, too. I could see someone who doesn't use gloves really liking these. 

 

I only bought one, just to test out of curiosity, and it was on a shaft I didn't end up keeping, so I can't speak to how they hold up long-term. But I liked them. If they were an option on a build for around the same price as MCCs or Iomics or something, I'd happily go with them.

 

One other note: They were definitely thicker in diameter than something like a Tour Velvet. Felt like maybe +1/32, plus a couple extra wraps under the bottom hand? I'm just guessing here; like I said, I no longer have that grip so I can't measure or anything. But definitely a little bigger than a standard Tour Velvet but smaller than a midsize Tour Velvet, and with a little extra thickness under the bottom hand.

I haven't used a glove in a while, don't know exactly when I quit but it's been quite a few years. When I stopped using a glove I actually had Iomic Sticky 2.3's on my clubs but when I was done paying the high prices just to re-grip, I switched to the Golf Pride Tour Velvet Aligns and they are plenty good enough for my hands. I do not get along with super tacky grips. Doubt I'll try these but at least they have a cool name!

Good feedback - would love to try one of these out as well, but $18 is quite a bit for an under the radar brand.

I had a couple still have a couple left, very firm feeling which surprised me. Like the previous post like a cord without the cord, I also removed mine and never tried one again.
