.....do these exist?  I've seen (and game) the white/black and all the other two tone colors, but would love to have a simple all black grip.   Just curious to see if anyone knows if these exist?

I've never seen one but I'd sure love if they could make them, seems like it would cost less to produce it all one color aswell...



I have seen on the tour burner tp I believe it came with a black grey one that was stock but it didn't feel like other multicompounds, felt like there was no cord in it

I would love these too but I know we will never see them from golf pride. They get all the free marketing with the colors as they stand out on tv, etc. If they make all black everyone would use them and it would just look like any other grip. Best hope is the ones for '12 with white on top and black on bottom...at least your hand will cover the white. Pics are somewhere on this forum..

Personally like the colors.  Adds a personal touch to irons but it makes sense to have an all black option.

I really like the all black option as well. I'd get a set of those. Although, the colors did grow on me. I'm digging the black/purple grips.

Still not on their site. I never understood why they would offer purple and baby blue (literally never seen either of these on a club) but not all black.

They don't make them for the same reason Cleveland made the back of the CG14 bright yellow and TM makes white drivers.  So that when they are played on tv you know exactly what they are.  If GolfPride made the grips only black it would be harder for people to figure out what the pros were playing.  It was amazing how many people come into a shop asking for the white NDMC when Phil started playing them.  If they were all black it's likely not as many people would have noticed.
