Anyone's junior using the Winn Dri-Tac grips?  Need to re-grip a used set of TS-51 irons. Obviously, could just get the Winn grips from USKG and proceed. Probably just need to take my kid to the store and have him touch each grip for juniors they have (Winn, Golf Pride, Iomic).  I was looking at the Dri-Tac because it appears to be the lowest in weight at 28g although I also saw the Flynn VTMax grips at 33g.

My son loves them but we had to go with ladies/undersized grips now that he uses adult heads.

Went to a ladies or senior flex shaft I assume is the reason (shaft diameter)? Or just preference for the grip size as some just like a larger feeling grip?

Good to hear from people they are good. If my kid likes how they feel, I'll put a set of them on the TS51 irons.

They are real good.  My daughter has always used the dri tacs.  College they have to use Golf Prides and she can’t stand them.  My boy uses them as well.  The Dri-Tacs they make for Wilson-Staff I think are better.  That is what he uses now.

How are the junior Winn's width/size compared to say, stock USKG grips?  (The USKG grips probably stagger up, but we are in 51" set).  We recently got TS3 irons (51).  I swear the grips just feel tinier than his UL48's did.  I have not asked him, he doesn't need to be thinking about that, but they just feel really narrow to me.  Coincidentally or not, he is turning it over a little quicker too.  That is probably just adjusting to releasing the heavier clubs and will fix , but I can't help but wonder if slightly beefier grips would be better.  Love the feel of the Winn's myself.

We like them because they are great for humid weather.

No only diameter, but mostly due to weight.  The winn dri tac junior grips are super light.  We needed something a bit heavier that would also help with balancing the club out a bit.  that's what the builder advised anyhow. :)

Anybody use the VT Max Grips? What did you think of them?  Are they made by a well-known OEM?

Trying to decide between them and Dri-Tac's. The only reason I am considering the VT Max Grips is because the junior wants to make an "Irish" driver (green, white and orange).  The weight difference between the two grips is 5g (Dri-Tac (28g) and VT Max (33g)).

I wouldnt worry about the weight of the grips when choosing between the Dri Tac and the ones from Flynn. What you should look at is that they both feel totally different. The Dri Tac are soft and cushy feeling and the ones from Flynn are a traditional rubber like feel. The Dric Tac grips do tend to wear our quicker so that is also something to consider.

Check out the Super Stroke Cross Comfrot if you like the dri tac but want more durability. Love mine. For my son he has been playing with GP Tour Velvet or either Lamkin REL grips for the past 2 years and likes them. He does like my grips though.

Yeah, having not seen nor have access to the VT Max grips, I can’t really get a feel for whether junior will like them. We will be headed to the local golf mart to look at the other grip selections today. I’m only looking at weight from a total club weight perspective (~198g head, 44g Flynn VT Max shaft, 6g adapter, ?? grip). Trying to stay around 280g so that leaves around 30g for grip.

My daughter plays VT max decent grips, not the best but she loves them because they are well pink. But lighter grips = heavier swing weight for what its worth.

The Golf Pride Junior Tour Velvet is 45g and a great option for some.

Yeah saw those also. Kid wants the green head paired with a white shaft and orange grip (Irish Flag). If I just forget about the extra 10 grams, I might have Flynn put on the Iomic orange grip.   Would help the overall swingweight.

We had the Iomic Red grip from Flynn and it turned my son's glove pink.  He liked them but they felt cheap to me.

My older son plays the Winn's, and he is very partial to them.  Like others have said, the feel is different. Tried out the Tour Velvets for a different feel, and he wanted the Winn's back. They have a squishier feel than the Vtmax and Tour Velvets, and a good amount of tack. Vtmax grips are not bad, but they will wear more quickly.

Had them on my younger son's set, and he wears them out really quickly, so need to go in a different direction for him.
