SuperStroke TX1 Tour Extreme Club Grips



“What’s the perfect grip?”

That’s the question SuperStroke President Dean Dingman asked the company’s PGA Tour rep, who passed on the same question to Tour players. The result, after several years and countless prototypes, is the company’s new TX1 Tour Extreme Club Grips.


From a design standpoint, Dingman says the grips aren’t too different from what golfers currently have on their clubs. They’re not oversized or non-tapered like the company’s putter grips — that’s not what Tour players wanted. It’s the proprietary blend of two rubber compounds that he called “very different.”

[quote_box_center]”[Designing a grip] is like baking a cake,” Dingman said. “The hardness, the size, the taper, everything has to be right. “Grips are different shapes … we spent a lot of time giving these the shape and feel tour players wanted.”[/quote_box_center]

The grips offer golfers a blend of traction and control with a cord-infused upper portion and non-corded bottom portion that creates a softer feel.

The TX1 Tour Extreme Club Grips ($10.99 each, 52 grams) are available in five colors: (black/white), (red/white), (blue/white), (gray/white) and (green/white). Mid-Size grips ($11.99 each, 62 grams) are available in (black/white). Both grips are round.

Expect them in stores between mid-February and early March.

    Can someone please tell ALL grip manufacturers that there are MANY of us who use jumbo grips and we would appreciate some variety! I’d buy a full set now if Super Stroke made them in jumbo size. Sticking with my Winn Dry tac grips waiting…

    Didn’t they try this with the Pressure Zone grips a few years ago? I never had a chance to try them, but I can’t imagine that they were successful or they wouldn’t have pulled them.

    The grips won’t last long from playing. If they lasted too long from playing, they wouldn’t sell enough, so I would expect them to be as bad as New Decades

    I will give those a try. had the GP multi-compound decades but for me those wear out too much on the top due to the structure. Like my Flatso grip so wonder how those will be. Wouldn’t change all my grips at once but start maybe with my hybrid first.

    almost looks like Winn/GPand/SuperStroke had a 3 way

    I think a solid colour would have been better so not to run into a battle with GP multi’s but I am curious to see how they feel and how durable they are

    I’ll stick to my Lamkin Crosslines… great grip at a great price with great durability.

    It will be interesting to see if as many tour players play these on their woods and irons as their putters. They should just focus on putter grips. It is difficult enough to make a profit in the golf industry with what one is good at.

    I would love to know where you guys are buying the NDMC grips for $8.00. The Super Strokes are $1.00 cheaper than NDMC for me. My local Golfsmith has them set at $10.99.

      Try looking on this amazing new invention called the internet. The top Ebay golf sellers average around $8/grip. Anything lower than that is probably a counterfeit, but who knows?

    Bad enough that a good golf pride grip is 10.00 but these ugly looking things for a couple bucks more and with that dumb giant logo. …….. no way!

  12. Mark

    couldn’t they make the logo any bigger?!

    would have been nice to list the gram weight of these. are they standard around 50 grams, or what ? It will make a big difference when regripping.

    Any indication whether or not these have a reminder or a rib? There’s only one pic that shows the back and it looks like they might.

    No orange? Boo. Besides I’d def want to flip these over. The SuperStroke logo is huge.

    Appears to me to be a clone of the SharpPro grips that I’ve been using for at least the last ten years !! New technology ? Not in my book !!!

    Another GP knockoff, except this one comes in $2 more than the multicompound. No thanks.

    Stick to the putter grips SuperStroke – the club grip market is too crowded already. You may get a few curious players to try these out, and some carryover from the guys who own your putter grips, but I see you discounting these at least 50% or pulling these completely within 1-2 years. The next Black Widow (look up their failed venture into the grip market)…

    For my money you can’t beat Avon or Tackimac grips. If I was going to spend $10 on a grip it would be IOMIC.

      Bought a set of their Pressure Zone grips a while back. Not bad but an easy inch too short. I agree with you. Another GP clone although the the Black Widows aren’t bad.

    Where’s the counter balanced putter grip they’ve been promising???

    A new decade that costs more? Thats what we need.

  20. Jim

    I’d agree with earlier comments questioning why it took so long to copy the GP NDMC grips. Different look about them but otherwise they seem really similar. And why pay more for these? We’ll see I guess.

    I still love my GP multi-compound decades but will check these out this year.

    Interesting…. I’ll give them a shot!

Club Junkie Review: Graphite Design Tour AD VF wood shaft



Graphite Design has been a legendary brand in the world of premium golf shafts since the company was founded in 1989. Graphite Design has had some popular shafts over the years, but they are probably most well known for the Tour AD DI that was released in 2010. Today we are talking about the newest shaft in the Graphite Design lineup, the new VF. The letters do stand for something, Victory Force, and according to Graphite Design every victory requires force! For a more in-depth review, please check out the Club Junkie podcast below or on any streaming platform. Just search “GolfWRX Radio.”

Out of the box, the VF has a very familiar look with a red handle section and a black tip section that are separated with the traditional 10 silver rings. The color combination is definitely more subtle than some of the other Tour AD shaft combinations. Graphite Design doesn’t make too many low-launching shafts, so the VF is filling that need. The VF will suit players looking for low/,id launch and low spin shaft to put in their driver or fairway wood.

The shaft profile is a firm+ handle section, it matches the stiffest handles Graphite Design shafts, with a stiff midsection, and finally a very stiff tip. Exotic materials are used along with MSI Design to maintain stability and consistency. Graphite Design uses Torayca M40X carbon fiber in the handle section to make it stiffer and enhance control of the shaft. Ultra-high modulus Torayca T1100G is used in the middle and tip section for added stability without losing that smooth feel.

I built up the VF shaft using a universal tip system that allows me to use the shaft in any driver head. The building went extremely smoothly as every Graphite Design shaft I have ever installed has a consistent tip diameter and I have never had any issues with a sloppy fit. Once the VF was cut to length and installed, the shaft has a great look that doesn’t jump out as distracting or eye-catching. If you are playing a TaylorMade Stealth 2, then the shaft blends in naturally and they look to visually be great partners!

You would expect a smooth and responsive feel from any Graphite Design shaft and you will get just that with the VF. For me the shaft was exactly as Graphite Design describes, being mid/low launch and offering a very penetrating ball flight. The Tour AD XC might launch a touch lower, but I like the feel and consistency I get from the VF just a little bit more. No matter what driver head I used, the VF seemed to offer ball flight in a similar window, slightly lower than the Fujikura Ventus TR Blue I was using. Even shots into the wind showed no real signs of rising or ballooning. Spin was also lower than I expected with the VF shaft. On the course, I noticed a penetrating, boring flight no matter where I hit the ball on the driver face. Shots struck low on the face held a good amount of distance and even the low heel strike seemed to launch lower and carry further.

I even took a couple of driver heads out to the range with a launch monitor and noticed that I rarely saw a spin number with a “3” in front of it. Almost every shot, good and not so good, seemed to spin around that 2,600 RPM number. With many fittings and shaft tinkering, that is usually on the lower end of what I find with my swing. As I said with the shaft being mid/low launch I was seeing an average of around 11 degrees while using a couple of 10.5-degree driver heads. On course, the VF was very straight and consistent and while it seemed easier to square up than I expected, it did not want to go left as easily as some other shafts. I would consider the flight just slightly fade biased but if you release the club properly you will be rewarded with a straight shot down the fairway.

Overall, the Graphite Design Tour AD VF is a really solid mid/low launch and low spin option with a smooth feel. It is starting to gain some traction on the professional tours and could be a great shaft for your swing as well.
