Plus4 refers to this grip’s ability to simulate the feel of four extra layers of tape under the lower part of the grip, allowing you to grip the club lighter and produce more speed. Golf Pride’s Align technology is also included. A multi-compound design with both cord and rubber provides all-weather performance.

3. Lamkin Sonar

Made from a new Genesis material that provides a soft feel and tacky gripping surface, the Sonar fits a wide variety of players and handicaps. A reduced-taper design minimizes hand tension for a more fluid and faster motion, while micro-textures across the surface enhance feel and feedback.

4. Lamkin Comfort Plus

Designed to provide the same level of comfort as a polyurethane grip but with the enhanced feel of rubber, the Comfort Plus is also exceptionally durable. The same reduced-taper profile featured in the Sonar model with a larger lower section promotes less grip pressure and tension and faster swings. Micro-textures further enhance comfort and traction in all weather conditions.

5. Super Stroke Soft Wrap TC

The Dri-Tac X is made from Winn’s WinnDry polymer material, which provides all-weather tackiness with exceptional comfort and durability. The tapered design allows for a traditional shape and plenty of shock absorption. The lighter weight (48g) can be exploited to increase swingweight and clubhead feel.

7. Winn Dri-Tac

$6.59; winngrips.com

For players who want the comfort, tackiness and overall performance associated with Winn golf grips, but with a more traditional look than the X, the standard Dri-Tac model is one of the nest golf grips to go with. Available in four colors.

8. Winn Dri-Tac Wrap

If you’re a player who prefers wrap-style golf grips with less surface texture, the Dri-Tac is up your alley. Built with Winn’s proprietary WinnDry polymer material, which provides excellent tackiness, comfort and shock absorption, this model gives those accustomed to a wrap-style grip a top-notch option.
