These top grips aren’t just made of cool new materials, however. Equally inventive are the new textures and dual densities, which are designed to do more than simply help secure the hands to the club. Some wick water, some absorb shock, some are built for comfort, and others are made to promote healthy hands. Some grips are designed to do all of the above, so we’ve decided to call out a few of today’s top performers.
