Looking for some new grips - stumbled on Royal Grips which seem to be sold through GolfWorks these days. I remember years ago these were popular, does anyone have any more recent reviews? They can typically be had for a few dollars a grip.

I put one on my 3 wood to try out. Typically play without a glove so tackiness and grip are very important to me. So far they have performed very nicely. They have a nice soft silky feel to them but are better than GP tour velvets in my opinion. The old gen. Lamkins used to be my favorite grip but I may put the RG XV's on all of my clubs. Very good grip for the price.

Hard to find a better grip for the price.
I like the old school V-Sand Wrap. And it's available with a rib which I prefer on my irons.

A while back I bought some Royal Interlocking grips and when they arrived I was taken back by how small they were.  They would require extra tape wraps to get them up to standard size so I just threw them in the spares box.  I have good memories of the Sand Wrap Royal grips so this experience was sort of a bummer.  The grips weighed 50 grams so it's not like there was a mixup with some undersize grips or anything.  At any rate, I like Royal but the devils in the details.

I put their Perf Wraps on everything and haven't had any issues.  Some were a pain to install but most went on easily.  I was looking for something that reminded me of the old Golf Pride Tour Wraps.  This did the trick...better tack than the Tacki-Mac Itomic Wraps I tried last year.

Feel is good, quality seems right up there.  I believe they're still made by Lamkin.  Don't hesitate to give them a shot.

As above the Perf Wrap, i bought a dozen a month ago on special.
Maybe the best feel of anything i have tried.
My all time favourites are Mizuno M21 and GP TV.
I took a punt on the wrap and feel/texture are really way better than i expected,
better feel than GP Tour Wrap .
Put them on my MP33 Irons.

The Royal LinkTech Cord is an amazing grip for the price. I also agree with dr bones, the pistol grip is excellent.

I purchased a set of Royal XV mid size grips in the winter and have used them on various clubs that I have acquired this year.  I quite like them as they remind me of the old Lamkin Stingfree grips from about 10 years ago, in fact I would say they are pretty much and exact copy.  I paid less than $2 a piece and at that price they are excellent value.  They are only .580" core and can be a bit of a challenge to install even on steel shafted clubs.  I ended up blowing them on as a result and found that worked much better than using the traditional tape and solvent method.  I wouldn't even attempt to put these on an club with >.600" butt diameter.
