Still rocking the Z-Grip Cords in midsize. Still haven't found something better despite trying quite a few other grips the past couple years.

I feel like they're slightly smaller than some other midsize grips though so I usually go +1 wrap when installing.

The Tour Velvet Align came on my Epic Max LS. Liked it so much put it on all my clubs +2 wraps. My putter grip is the Golf Pride Pro Only cord 81cc green. I really like this putter grip and feel like I've never putted better.

Lamkin TS1 in wedges, irons, 3W and driver. 5W is the stock Taylormade grip. Putter is the Flatcat Solution I won here a few years ago.

I have the Taylormade Tour Velvets on my irons and Lamkin crossline midsize on my wedges and woods. I am going to swap out my everything to the Tour Velvets so that I have a similar feel on everything. Just haven't done it because my woods and wedges were newish so I didn't want to just toss them.

MCC on irons, Lamkin ST+2 Hybrid on fairways, TV on Hybrid and driver, and TV+4 on wedges - a mishmash.

Full swing clubs, MCCs since I can't find UTx grips anywhere. Standards with colors matching the clubs for D-4H. MCC+4 (what I could find at the time) grey on my irons and standard MCC bumblebees on my wedges currently.

Putter is currently SNSR 104 but I've got an Edel round grip to try out here soon on my Sik as well.

GP Tour Velvet Align and I said I was going back to SuperStroke S-Techs after this season, but now I'm not quite sure. I'm getting a lot more comfortable with the TV's and they are holding up much better than the S-Techs.

Never thought I would love MCC grips, but I LOVE them

I need to do a side by side comparison between the two but I think I need to re-evaluate my grip choice. I have been using MCC Midsize +4 and think it might be a bit too much. I am thinking about opting for Tour Velvet +4 with like 2 wraps of masking tape. I'll at least get a mid iron redone once the grips wear more to see if I like that. I play with the driver grip more since I am rotating through shafts and heads like crazy but I am running a standard Tour Velvet with 2 wraps of masking tape and it allows me to turn over the driver more effortlessly. I would rather be able to weaken my grip than have to feel like I am playing super strong.

I also notice that with a fundamentally good swing I can get a nasty push shot with my current grips, was never an issue when I played standard Tour Velvets.
