Lamkin Golf Grips
Lamkin Golf Grips 2023 Review
Golfers select their grips based on various criteria, including firmness, tack and texture. One manufacturer that consistently meets these requirements is Lamkin.
The UTx Cord offers the ideal blend of traction and softness in a wrapped grip, making it the ideal option for wedge players seeking precision and control.
Golfers looking for a slightly softer feel with extra traction should give the Sonar+ Black an evaluation. It features a network of micro textures to increase grip feel and traction, plus a reduced taper shape which promotes hand unity while decreasing excess grip pressure. Together with Genesis material, Lamkin claims it offers optimal combination of comfort, performance and durability.
These grips provide a suitable alternative for players who do not wish to have the additional bulk of a full cord grip but who desire something different than standard black rubber options from manufacturers. Plus, there's also an Oversize option available to fit all grip sizes!
This grip stands out among others we have tested because of its innovative 'Calibrate' rib, which serves as a reminder to promote better hand placement and clubface awareness. This is an especially useful feature for high handicappers who tend to grip too tightly, leading to loss of control of their clubs as a result.
The Sonar+ Tour Calibrate differs significantly from the TS1, in that it offers medium softness with good tack. If kept clean, its advantage lies in being able to retain its tack; however, as is common among non-corded grips it does suffer from dirt accumulation in its top corners. This popular new grip is an ideal solution for mid and high handicappers searching for an ergonomic, durable grip to perform consistently throughout their season and in all conditions. Lamkin has expanded their market-leading product offering with new grips designed for Genesis material, such as their Crossline 360 family. Launched this year and already in use on major OEM programs through 2022.
UTX Green & UTX Blue
Lamkin grips provide golfers with everything they need for optimal play, offering the industry's broadest selection of sizes, styles and textures. Their grips are beloved among club manufacturers, PGA Tour professionals and millions of golfers worldwide; offering performance-enhancing comfort and control regardless of style of play.
UTx Green is an all-weather grip with immense popularity on Tour. Made of firm material, the UTx reduces torsional twisting at impact to provide increased swing speed players with optimal control. Furthermore, this grip offers great feedback from clubface contact points and has an extra-grippy surface designed for use in wet conditions.
UTx Blue offers another outstanding option with its cord weaved into its grip, providing a hybrid of tack and cord for optimal golfers. Not only is this grip exceptionally comfortable and provides great palm/finger contact feel, it provides exceptional feel!
Lamkin's Calibrate family of grips are specially tailored for high-swing speed players to promote proper hand placement, clubface awareness, feel and results. Each Calibrate grip features a distinct reminder strip at the back that helps golfers keep their hands consistent while golfing.
The Wrap-Tech soft grip offers maximum tack with minimum pressure, making it an excellent solution for players without naturally strong grip pressure or those seeking gloveless play without losing fullness and lightness. Extremely comfortable, the Wrap-Tech feels like an oversized soft couch under your hands - unlike most softer grips which may show signs of early wear after just a few rounds of play.
Crossline 360 Black
Crossline 360 Black offers the assurance you need for consistent gripping, with its Lamkin's ACE 3GEN material and dual-direction Crossline texture pattern offering secure gripping connections that give golfers confidence when performing at their best game.
This grip may not be suitable for everyone and those looking for a soft sensory experience might be better served by something else; but those that appreciate tackier textures will surely appreciate its performance. Able to withstand sweaty hands as well as wet weather without feeling uncomfortable afterwards, this grippy will not allow your hands to slip either!
Calibrate golf clubs are designed for players looking to make use of technology within the Calibrate range and will benefit from having a reminder strip running down the back of their grip, which helps promote consistent hand placement and a deeper understanding of clubface dynamics to increase results from shots taken.
The Sonar Tour features a network of micro textures designed to improve both feel and traction as well as a reduced taper that promotes hand unity by eliminating excessive grip pressure. Specifically designed to withstand higher-than-average swing speeds and wet conditions alike.
Lamkin's UTX Green and Blue grips have quickly become two of the fastest-growing on tour in 2022 due to multiple wins across multiple tournaments. Ideal for players who prioritize precision and short game performance, these grips feature an increased lower section that promotes lighter grip pressure for increased control and accuracy.
Crossline 360 Gray
Golf grips are an integral component of your club. They provide tactile feedback on every stroke and impact, so it's essential that they fit snugly and feel comfortable in your hands. The ideal grips provide excellent traction while being lightweight enough for easy swinging without tension build-up; this keeps muscles relaxed so they can focus more easily on ball striking and control.
Lamkin offers an assortment of grip options that cater to players at all levels of play. Their Crossline 360 standard grip provides the optimal combination of feel, performance, and durability - including its consistent pattern from top to bottom which ensures you maintain the same stance during each shot. Plus it's great for wet weather use too providing extra traction across a range of climates!
Sonar+ Tour Calibrate Grip is an ideal grip choice for wet weather play, employing microtextured surfaces to enhance feel and traction, with reduced taper to encourage more even hand pressure across its grip surface. This will enable more accurate shots with irons and woods.
SuperStroke are more commonly associated with their putting grips, yet have experienced tremendous success extending into full swing grips as well. Their S-Tech grip is an example, having found favour with Jordan Spieth and Sergio Garcia who early adopted it. It features textured dual texture designed to replicate cord grip feel without the discomfort that cord grips can bring while also featuring a reminder strip to ensure correct club hold.
Golfers often overlook the impactful role that grip plays in their game, yet it should not be ignored. Grips affect not only how well you play but also the results of your shots - having the appropriate grip can help improve drives and fairways/greens; conversely having incorrect ones could result in hooks, missed shots or worse - lead to injuries!
Lamkin grips are the choice of many players on Tour and around the world due to their superior quality, performance and feel at an economical price point.
Lamkin first made waves last year with their release of the Sonar, garnering widespread acclaim. This year they've expanded on that success by unveiling the Sonar Tour. Featuring micro-textures to improve feel and traction as well as an optimized taper shape that promotes hand unity while alleviating excess grip pressure, the Tour is sure to become your new go-to grip for ultimate satisfaction.
As with the Sonar, the Tour is constructed using Genesis Material which offers soft exterior for all-weather tackiness and an ergonomic feel. Additionally, Fingerprint Technology and an audible reminder strip help facilitate better hand placement to increase shot shaping, consistency and results.
This grip is slightly firmer than its Sonar counterpart and features an even, uniform texture across its entire grip surface. This design helps provide you with a steady feel in most conditions; however, when wet can become slightly slippery. Ideal for high or mid-range swing speeds that need additional feedback from their clubface. Often preferred by Tour Players when installed logo down.
