    Shock Absorbing Grips

    Hello - looking for some shock absorbing grips.
    Was considering the following:

    SS Soft Wrap TC
    GP Tour Wrap 2G
    GP CP2 Pro

    Not worried about cost or durability, mainly shock reduction.
    Any thoughts? Thank you

    I think Winn's iconic Excel model grip is well known for providing shock absorption.
    I play GP CP Wrap mid size and like them very much. Any mid size model will provide more shock absorption than a standard size grip.
    Also, many people focused on shock absorption prefer graphite iron shafts to steel shafts.

    Thank you. I do use graphite shafts, but also looking for a little more help.
    Never been a WINN fan, but will look into the midsize approach, thanks again

    I can 2nd the switch to graphite shafts if you can swing it finance wise. UST has a recoil series w/ smac wrap that focuses specifically on shock absorption

    Otherwise the oversized winn excel wrap would offer a large amount of dampening.

    I use the CP2 pro's and really like them. I do not care for a wrap style grip so I have not tried the others. I found them to be the best grip I have ever used for moisture control in hot humid conditions and the soft feel is a bonus.

    I use the MCC + 4 Midsize. The bigger grip helps me to not strangle the club and cause hand pain. They are great in the weather too.

    Agreed, that's what my dad (age 74) uses and he swears by them

    Be careful switching grips to a softer grip. I done it a month ago and will be switching back first golf store I go into at Myrtle Beach. They felt good initially until I really started playing with them. The shorter the club the less control I have with the bigger softer grips.
