Anyone who golfs knows these are the cream of the crop in golf grips. Golf Pride® developed a hybrid grip that has the performance of both cord and rubber for a feel no other grip can provide. It uses their black Velvet Cord in your upper hand area for a solid all weather control and then their softer rubber material is used in your lower hand to provide great response and control. If it is good enough for Open/PGA Champ Rory McIlroy to use and win I think you better give your sticks an upgrade. Stock up these will go fast!
