Golf Pride MCC Plus4 Grips



Golf Pride’s new MCC Plus4 have a larger lower portion of the grip — the equivalent of four “wraps” under the lower hand.

Through tour testing and golfer feedback, Golf Pride determined that a large percentage of golfers prefer a slightly bigger grip with a less-tapered construction. The MCC Plus4 grips have 4.6 percent more diameter in the lower hand compared to the original MCC, and use a softer compound for better feel.

The multi-compound design uses a different rubber compound on the upper, which is a Brushed Cotton Technology (BCT) cord that manages moisture and adds traction to prevent slippage.

MCC Plus4 grips ($9.49 each) will be in stores March 15 and will be available in blue, grey and red. The grips weigh 52 grams each and have a .600 (Round) diameter.

    Be glad for $10 per grip. It’s $15.50 at current exchange rates in the UK! 🙁

    Agree with others.. cost of grips is getting absurd. GP comes out with less tapered option which they say large percentage of golfers prefer (I definitely prefer) and they only offer it in a $10 grip! Outrageous!
    Learn to regrip your own clubs and you can control the size/taper yourself.
    It aint that hard and it can be done without a vise if you are careful.
    Lamkin x10 is a great lower priced grip, although as I recall no cord or reminder rib available.

      Haha $10. In Australia they are $22. $10 would be a dream.

    They just need to add the reminder rib and then we finally wont have to spend so much time putting a decent grip on….

    I have been doing that to my grips for years. Lamkin cross line with two wraps on top and four on the bottom. I do it so I have a consistent feel when I choke up on the club to take distance off. I also believe that I am less proned to hook choke up shots as well. Tapered grips make absolutely no sense to me.

    Is their going to be a midsize option?

      Yes! Presently, the only color offered in midsize is gray. I am hoping they expand the selection to other colors as well.

    thicker grip towards the bottom reduces hooking. 10 bucks a grip reduces your wallet size. Grips have become ridiculously expensive….

      I would have to concur on the price of grips. Thankfully I can regrip my own clubs, but for the person who has to rely on someone else to regrip their glubs, not only are they paying upwards of $8/grip on average, then they have to shell out another $2/grip for installation. Easy math is $130 for a set of clubs, not including the putter. So if you’re the average Joe what are you going to spend the $130 on first, grips or 4 dozen balls to get you through the season?

        Grips over balls, no question. What is the use of gaming new balls with old grips? 2 wedges + 7irons x$10 =$90 and many places offer specials for re gripping if you can’t or don’t want to do it yourself.

    Does the thicker lower section do anything for your swing/grip? Or is it simply for feel?

    These new grips remind me of cigars

      If it simply was for feel that would do something for your swing/grip would it not?

      Your bottom hand generally makes the hand rotate, so having a thicker grip on the bottom hand would make your hands less likely to flip to much. It won’t fix it, but it would defiantly help.

        If you are really ‘flipping it’ 4 extra wraps of thickness is not going to do anything. Perhaps a softer beefier lower hand will allow lighter grip pressure and more “feel”?

Tour Edge shares photos of never-before-seen square driver from 2007



The year was 2007. The famous/infamous Nike Sasquatch Sumo2 was released the year prior, ditto the Callaway FT-i. It was a (brief) time when, if you were a driver, it was hip to be square.

Fast forward 16 years. Tour Edge revealed on social media this week that it had plans to add right angles to its Exotics line with an epic #TBT post, writing:

“For this #throwbackthursday we’re going to prove that sometimes a product just wasn’t destined to come out…

“That’s the case with this one-of-a-kind Exotics XSi square driver.

“The XSi stood for XTREME SUPER INERTIA, and we were following the design trend of the day back in good ol’ 2007…

“But [in] the end cooler heads prevailed and this one was left on the shelf.

“Literally, we just found it on a shelf in our “museum” and almost every single person who was here at the time had forgotten about it, or just plain never knew it existed.”

Check out photos of the Tour Edge Exotics XSi, below!
