Iomic
Art Grip Series
Key Feature: Using a proprietary elastomer compound called IOMAX that has a unique feel all its own, not only is the Art Grip Series incredibly durable and tacky, but its marbled look is incredibly stylish. If we could describe the feel, we would. You have to try it to know what we mean.
Who It's For: Golfers who want some pizazz in their golf bag and who like the unique firm feel of Iomic grips.
Material: Proprietary IOMAX elastomer
Design: Round
Size: Standard

Lamkin
R.E.L. 3GEN
Key Feature: The R.E.L. 3GEN is back in 11 colors, each with the grip's distinct surface texture that provides extra comfort and reduces the amount of grip pressure needed to maintain control throughout the swing. This means the hands can move faster and, you guessed it, longer shots.
Who It's For: Golfers with a rich color palette and who want what we think is Lamkin's best grip.
Material: Proprietary rubber
Design: Velvet
Size: Undersized, standard, midsized, oversized

Lamkin
Crossline ACE 3GEN
Key Feature: A proprietary Advanced Cohesive Elastomer material that delivers exceptional tackiness with a soft feel. The added tackiness means golfers don't need to grip the club as firm, helping to increase hand speed and hit longer shots. There's also a Perma-Wrap ACE 3GEN.
Who It's For: Players who want a lot of tackiness in a really soft-feeling grip.
Material: Advanced Cohesive Elastomer
Design: Velvet
Size: Standard, midsized, oversized

Superstroke
Fatso 5.0
Key Feature: Weighing in around 90 grams (that's light for its size), the Fatso 5.0 has a new CrossTraction PU material for added feel and tackiness, yet retains the non-tapered design that has made it popular on the PGA Tour.
Who It's For: Golfers who want to put an end to yippy, hand-driven strokes. It's amazing how well it works. It's as though the hands slow down all by themselves.
