It is that time a year for manufacturers to start unveiling their 2015 product lines and our first company to do so is Lamkin grips. Here is a quick look at what you will soon be able to get your hands on.
2015 Lamkin UTx Wrap
The UTx line made its’ debut last year and was well received. Lamkin is now introducing a new offshoot version of it. Over the years I found there are two types of people out there. No, I am not referring to Democrats and Republicans, rather golfers that either prefers a smooth surface or the texture of a wrapped grip. Now the UTx family covers both. The new UTx Wrap will be available in standard and midsize in both black and a blue version (sorry no red like the standard UTx).
If you are not hip to the UTx performance advantage, here is a quick look. They offer their Tri-Layer technology which is essentially blending different materials for better results. These give you the traction of a corded grip without the harsh feel.
Speaking of Lamkin UTx, there is also a new jumbo putter model. Lamkin will introduce two other putter grips, but we will talk about those in a future blog.
Another new grip line to “wrap” your fingers around, the new 2015 Lamkin Wrap-Tech Grips
Lamkin has had a long line of followers with their Perma Wrap families over the years. With the departure of the Perma Wrap Ace with 3GEN after the inventory runs out, Lamkin will soon have the new family called the Wrap Tech. This differs from the Perma Wrap grips of the past as Lamkin engineers added a high-traction band between the grooves in the simulated wrapped pattern. So you get the tacky feel you have come accustomed to with the Perma Wrap grips of the past but with some extra traction.
These will be available in standard, midsize and oversize (jumbo) grip sizes, while the standard model will be available with 3 different accent colors to color coordinate with today’s most popular clubs.
If you think you are seeing double on our website in regards to many of your popular Lamkin grips, don’t worry. Lamkin is slowing changing over from the long-time script logo to their new one. You can get some good bargains now on some of the older logoed grips so act fast before they are gone. For clubmakers, you may want to look at your inventory and see if you might need some fill-in pieces so you can complete a set before they are all gone.
Well, that’s a wrap on the new 2015 grips from Lamkin.
