No tape, no solvent: New Golf Pride Concept Helix grip makes installation hassle-free

Published

on

If you have ever wanted to regrip your clubs but didn’t want to deal with the hassle of tape or solvent, Golf Pride has developed a revolutionary system to make regripping easier than ever before with the all-new Golf Pride Concept Helix.

The Concept Helix grip and the simple system used to install it removes the fear factor of installing grips and also brings a new level of accessibility to those that are looking to benefit from the performance advantage of new grips—it also requires zero drying time, meaning you can go from gripping clubs to hitting shots instantly.

To see how it works, check out the video from Golf Pride below.

Golf Pride Concept Helix grip: More details

Golf Pride’s new Concept Helix grip system uses a friction and torque-based installation method that ensures the grips are secure and are installed using a proprietary ‘horn’ device that is included with every order.

“Golf Pride stands at the forefront of innovation in grips, and Concept Helix builds on that legacy as the first-ever twist-on grip technology system. This is the first major new advanced concept to come out of the lab at our new Global Innovation Center in Pinehurst and innovates the installation process, requiring no tape, no solvent, and no drying time. Getting fresh grips on your clubs will be more seamless than ever.”
Greg Cavill – Global Project Engineer / Golf Pride

The other interesting note is that without the need for solvents or tape, the new Concept Helix grips and more environmentally friendly.

“We continue to explore new technologies that benefit golfers, both on and off the course. Concept Helix, in this regard, is this next step in the exploration of best practices for grip installation.”- Brandon Sowell, global director of sales and marketing for Golf Pride

    Cool idea but they are gonna cost a fortune.

    Why would I pay for single use “locking mechanism” for every grip? Decent 12V compressors start from $30 in Amazon, which is useful for any car owners anyway.

    I hope they come out in midsize. The website has standard only.

    seems like a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist

    grow a pair and use solvent

      Without innovation you’d be using a blade with a hickory shaft still. Technology evolves and this is the kind of thing which could make the next generation become more involved in the game. Or it could be a stepping stone to a system we all rave about. Even if it ends up being nothing, tech development is still a solution to prevent the game from standing still.

    Might work fine on a virgin shaft but there is still the labor of removing the old grip and tape.

    Just pay some guy $2.99 per grip at PGA Superstore or Golf Galaxy to put on the Golf Pride Tour Velvet Cord, come back the next day and pick up your clubs. Simple.

    I applaud them for something different for the average guy who doesn’t have a compressor. That said, I converted to using air 6 years ago when I went to Pure grips and have been using on all grips since with the exception of Super Stroke putter grips. Be interesting to see the price and grip options and how they feel

    This is what it has come to. I predict civil war inside the year.

    Why can’t Golf Pride just introduce Tour Velvet’s in a range of cool colors instead of this nonsense….?

    • gwelfgulfer

      Dec 4, 2020 at 8:32 pm

      More or less this… The most used grip in the history of the game and still in black… But keep making more over priced grips, cause that’s what people really want…

    I like the idea. I’d pull the trigger, but they have me conditioned to play with a rib now. Curious to see if that is the next release.

  12. Dan

    Dec 1, 2020 at 12:37 pm

    So basically what PURE grips came up with already?

    • Happy Duffer

      Dec 1, 2020 at 12:54 pm

      Pure grips uses compressed air for their tapeless installation don’t they? This system seems to be really different and does not require that you own a compressor.

      • J

        Dec 1, 2020 at 2:41 pm

        You can install pretty much any rubber grip with compressed air too, not just Pure.

    • Tyler Durden

      Dec 1, 2020 at 9:29 pm

      Pure grips has a screw top fastening device too? Wow didn’t know that

    That “proprietary horn device” has been out for years….

      But this tool doesn’t pull the grip down with it, it’s just to help space it over a thick, stubborn shaft end with extra tape or rib etc

    • gdb99

      Golfworks tool just stretches the grip over the end of the shaft. Golf Pride’s tool also tightens down the grip by using the opposite end of the tool. It’s really nothing like what Golf Pride has. It’s proprietary to the grip.

    @Yawn #Ad, before you criticize it as a useless gimmick, maybe take the time to look at the “red thing” more closely … in the first pic you can see that the ring end is split, so that it can be pried apart and slipped over the shaft after grip installation.

  15. Dave

    Dec 1, 2020 at 10:27 am

    One issue looks like there is no hole in the end of the grip now, so how do I put in a sensor like Arccos or 3bays?

  16. Yawn #Ad

    Dec 1, 2020 at 10:24 am

    And of course they don’t show you how the red thing comes off. Seeing how it goes on, you gotta pry each finger over the grip and somehow go back up over it. Seems like it works on shafts with no club head.

    What a useless gimmick

    • Large chris

      Dec 1, 2020 at 10:46 am

      Yep, and can’t see how the red thing even helps much with all the friction from the rest of the grip beyond the inch that’s expanded.
      This is the usual golf type solution for a non existent problem.

    • not gianni

      Dec 1, 2020 at 12:02 pm

      does it say you have to buy them? does it say they will be making all of their grips with this? no and no buddy… congrats little man! you are the typical elitist ignorant golfer…

      “you gotta pry each finger over the grip and somehow go back up over it” …. in order to properly critique something you must first know anything about what youre talking about and then you have to form sentences that actually make sense… your USGA handicap should read: “handicap: mentally”

        Dec 1, 2020 at 6:54 pm

        Its like that guy personally offended you. I know it’s winter but I didn’t expect to see snowflakes so soon.

    • Happy Duffer

      Dec 1, 2020 at 12:52 pm

      Looking closely at the tool it appears that it has a large notch on one side so that it can simply be slipped off sideways once the grip is in place.

    • Matt Aamold

      Dec 1, 2020 at 2:37 pm

      In the video you can clearly see that one side of the slip ring is open, so after installation it just slides off sideways.

      You probably think the election was stolen too. Lol
