V-RAD Camo
Key Feature: Advanced Composite Rubber (ACR) that yields a tacky yet soft feel at impact.

Golf Pride
Tour Wrap 2G
Key Feature: A classic grip made anew with a softer rubber that’s also tackier than before.
What We Like: The sweet black, red and white colors! Also, we didn’t think there was much room to improve on the performance and feel of the original Tour Wrap, but Golf Pride proved us wrong. These grips are excellent and hold up beautifully to rain and perspiration.
Who It’s For: Everyone who liked the original Tour Wrap and who wants to add a dash of color to their set.
Material: Rubber
Design: Wrap
Size: Small, standard, midsized

Who It’s For: All golfer types, especially those who like a smoother-feeling grip (with loads of tackiness, of course).
