Considering the grip is the only area that connects you with the golf club, not to mention with the golf ball for the matter, it’s a wonder so many golfers overlook this critical component.

2010 is full of grip options. Some new, and some holdovers from last year, thanks to some pretty innovative new technologies in rubber compounds, patterns and more. Check out the following models. We’ve tested almost all of them, and each one has merits to consider.



Black Widow Fusion
Key Features: Made of a dual-compound material that’s firm where it’s needed and soft where it’s preferred.
What We Like: Like the Signature grip, and the variety of other new grips from Black Widow, the Fusion has an aggressive pattern that breathes new life into a lesser-exciting product category. The textured feel is ideal in wet weather.
Who It’s For: Golfers who want a new take on grip technology and who like an aggressive look and pattern design.
Material: Dual-compound
Design: Textured velvet
Size: Std., Ribbed
Weight: Std.

Black Widow Signature
Key Features: Aggressive patterns via Web Traction Technology on the backside of the grip for more control.
What We Like: The dual-compound material is firm and soft (yes, you can have both). We also dig the radical patterns, graphics and the assortments of colors. It’s also refreshing to see a new company get into grips.
Who It’s For:Anyone looking for a grip that has an exceptional level of performance.
Material: Dual-compound
Design: Patterned velvet
Size: Std., Ribbed
Weight: Std.
