heard a well-informed source state that this will be introduce at the PGA Show in January, and available to OEMs shortly thereafter.

if it's true, it'd be the ideal grip for a lot of us that like the MCC Plus4 reduced taper profile, but want that feel of Tour Velvet.

can someone please confirm or deny this grip is coming to market?

cheers!

This is a no brainer for Golf Pride.  

I went back to the Crossline black this season due to the reduced taper and the fact that I didn’t feel like doing a time consuming tape job again to make the TVs feel right.  

Would be on these in a heartbeat!

They have less taper than the Tour Velvets, but still more taper than the other +4 stuff.

bring back Tour Velvet Cord midsize. It's only the most popular grip in the history of the world. What are you waiting for? quit trying to reinvent the wheel.

Yes!!  I've been whining about this forever.  The Z Cord is a midsize option, but I'm too big of a pansy for those.

Z cord looks good but is really harsh on the hands. It's crazy because they make the BCT in midsize, but they are tour only. Sell them on the website, custom order only. People will buy them.

My dream grip is the TV cord midsize +4 with align. I have MCC +4 align now and really dig them.

Not like the +4, but noticeably less taper than the GPTV during a routine installation.

You know as much as I’d love to try out a midsize, TV+4, if they’re going to charge $10 like they do with with the TV align’s I think I’ll just keep asking my club builder to apply more tape like I usually do

Do you understand volume and manufacturing?  Its not just as easy as selling on the website.
