They asked us in the testing to put on on a driver and hybrid or fairway wood. There's really not a lot of force required to put the grip on via the horn, one could probably do it sideways just as easily to remove or add said grip if they were worried about breakage.I don’t think I would want to put the pressure on my graphite shafted clubs by putting the head on the ground and pushing/pulling the grip on. I can see a slip and then a broken shaft.
Grip styles for now, sure. Gotta remember this is the 1.0 of releases. They’ll indeed improve over time.I watched a youtube review of them and they didn't look quite as easy to put on as I was thinking. Also seems like a very limited number of grip styles would be available using this tech. No Aligns, no rib grip of any kind, or grip with any kind of visual alignment. Also looked like the tool could cause some damage to shaft finish if not careful.
Oddly enough, I talked about these with @billyh during the event we did on Monday. The concept is cool, but the feel of the grip didn’t translate well to me. It didn’t feel like a tour velvet, and it never felt like it was super secure on the club even when tightening the heck out of it at times.
I'm still using them. The size is a good fit to my hand (Standard/Mid tweener). I'll probably go back to Tour Velvets in my wedge and hybrid by might keep the Concept on my driver for a while.
Still have a couple on my 7 iron and Driver. Just got some new clubs though and will be transitioning back to the MCC4's.
it's a great concept, but the effect on swingweight could be not insignificant. if this is directed at people who don't have access to a club builder and want to diy, i hope those people are considering swingweight as well.Yeah, that is definitely something I fight with too. Thankfully it’s fine on the driving iron but it could pose a problem on other clubs.
