    The original Sonar's were fantastic there. When I reviewed them I played them in the rain some.

    Saw these on IG earlier. Like the looks a lot. Wonder if the reduced taper will be the same as on the regular Sonar grips.

    I'm a fan of the UTx, not sure these would knock those out, but I'll certainly look forward to seeing these in a store.

    Just got an answer from Lamkin regarding the taper. These will feature a traditional grip taper. I personally prefer this to reduced taper.

    Those grips look really nice. I'm not in the market for new grips this year (GP bought my allegiance) but Lamkin being hyped about them certainly has my interest piqued.

    I tried the TS1 and felt the same way. Same reduced taper profile on both of those grips.

    Yes I tried the ts1 as well, tbh I think it makes me not finish my swing it maybe just odd feeling but I have short fingers might be why I don't do well with them but the sonar felt the best as far as comfort and lessen vibration so I will be grabbing me some of these for sure

    The original Sonar fit into their Comfortable Performance bucket. They are soft, at least to me. Where would the Sonar Tour fit into their line-up

    Good looking grips. Generally I prefer a more aggressive grip such as a full cord or UTx. However, @Jman mentioned that the regular Sonar worked well for him in the rain so I will have to take a look at these.

    I wonder if these will be available in a "Plus Size" reduced taper version like the regular Sonar? (see edit)
