While I was happy with my previous set of Golf Pride CP2 Wrap grips in terms of performance and durability, it was necessary for me to change them out because of the recurrence of my golfer’s elbow and tennis elbow. The grips were too hard.

I did a lot of research and inquiries on grips. In order to help prevent golfer’s elbow or at least keep it from getting worse, midsize and soft is the way to go.  I’ve never liked small hard grips, especially cord style.  I’ve always liked more mushy ones.  Perhaps that’s because I don’t wear a glove.

I contacted my friend Danny at UST Mamiya since I previous reviewed their Soft Grips back in 2012 and loved them.  I remember Danny and UST Mamiya being very cool to work with.  They were kind enough to send in recent set of these great Soft Touch grips.  I’ve been playing them for a couple of months now.

Features

Soft Touch grips are made from polyurethane, similar to materials found in golf balls. Urethane covered golf balls are softer and higher performance. These materials reduce vibration and give the grip a soft feel.

The grips design pattern and embossing not only looks cool, it provides traction and greater feel in all conditions.

On The Course

Just like before, I’m very happy with the feel and performance of the Soft Touch grips.  This batch is even better looking than my old set, in the more rock-n-roll style all black.

I love the feel of my clubs, and the shock to my elbows has been noticeably reduced.  The grips perform flawlessly and are very durable.

After spending most of the summer in pain, I’m hoping that my recent cortisone shot and new grips will mean the end of the problems.
