Gear alert. Here’s a first look at the new Golf Pride CPX golf grips. These are the softest performance golf grips that Golf Pride has ever made.
Golf Pride CPX Golf Grips
On first impression I really like the feel. It was nice of them to send in 3 samples. I guess I’ll install those on my 3-club rig and test ’em out! 🙂
What? Don’t you have a 3-club rig?
The Golf Pride MCC grip is the #1 hybrid grip on tour. These grips are a hybrid rubber/cord grip which combines the best performance characteristics of each material. Here’s the whole color spectrum, representing color schemes for most sports teams.
The upper hand area of the grip is brushed cotton cord and the the lower part of the grip is a high performance rubber material. The cord portion naturally gives the player a solid grip and control in all weather conditions while the rubber portion provides feel and responsiveness.
All weather control – cord style wicks away moisture to help prevent slipping.
Max surface texture – “Pebbled” texture increases surface area, increasing control of the club.
Firm feel – Grip provides firm, responsive feel and a high level of feedback. “Feedback” is the vibration and audible sound translated from the club to the golfer.
After careful analysis my team color is the red and black grip, just right of center. This matches well the Utah Utes crimson red.
Which color matches your team?
My shoulder pain is gone, except when I move my arm(s) too far in certain directions. So on a daily basis I’m pain free for the most part. But when awesome golf gear comes in for review and testing, I feel another pain. The pain of knowing I can’t make a real swing probably until sometime in 2020. Case in point is yesterday’s package from Golf Pride. Check out the Fall 2019 offerings:
The TourWrap grips (right two) are soft but still provide a ton of gripping power. Sizing comes in standard and midsize. I go midsize to help prevent golfer’s elbow/tennis elbow.
The Pro Only putter grips grips look and feel sweet. After trying all three, the Green Star (largest one on right in the photo) is the ticket for me. I know I’ll be deadly with it, if I ever golf again.
Thanks to Golf Pride for joining up with HOG for our 2019 “First Major” giveaway. The contest involved picking the winner of the Masters, who also plays Golf Pride grips. The response was great, and as expected many people picked Tiger Woods. Yes, Tiger does in fact play Golf Pride, as 80% of the PGA Tour does. Even more impressive than the 80% is that Golf Pride doesn’t sponsor players. That 80% is voluntary!
The winner of the 13 limited edition Golf Pride grips and cool T-shirt is “Todd” on twitter. Woot! Congratulations Todd. We will be pinging you for your shipping information!
Thanks to all “patrons” who participated.
I play Golf Pride grips. 80% of the PGA TOUR follows my lead, despite not getting paid by Golf Pride. That’s the sign of a really great product. I love the Align technology for my full swing clubs, and for my putter I game the TOUR SNSR.
I haven’t been one for doing a lot of contests and giveaways in the past, but I thought I’d change that up a bit and do a giveaway in honor of the 2019 Masters Tournament. I worked out a gift package with Golf Pride featuring 13 Limited Edition “First Major” MCC ALIGN Grips and the t-shirt pictured below.
The grips and shirt in this package are not available for sale, anywhere. Only a few select Tour players have them, and of course the soon-to-be winner of the 2019 HOG/Golf Pride “First Major” contest.
HOW TO PLAY
I can’t just give these incredible grips and t-shirt away to anyone. I need to make the winner work for it. Here’s how to win them:
- On Twitter, make sure you follow @HOGGOLFBLOG and @golfpridegrips
- Retweet any HOG “First Major” contest tweet with your pick for the Masters winner. The player must be a Golf Pride user.
The winner will be announced the day after the Masters Tournament concludes. In the event of a tie, the winner will be chosen at random.
Happy tweeting and GOOD LUCK!
