Do you use grips? If so what kind?
« on: March 14, 2017, 09:07:47 AM »
Just wondering as I still use vise, but there's alot of chatter about ultimate grips latley. Leave any feedback on your style choice.

I'm power oval as I dont dig the full lift.

Vise  - oval in ring finger & power lift in middle finger (don't know, just like the feel).  Clear color only - feel softer and tackier to me.

I can't vote. You don't have Contour Power Grips on the list.
didn't think they'd still exist...Yet to see em carried by any shops

My pro shop carries them so they must sell a lot of them. I'm quite sure he isn't selling them just for me since he has all sizes available and I only need 2 sizes (3 & 25).

I too see a lot of hype surrounding Ultimate, but I still use Vise.  As for color and feel, I agree that the black grips feel better and will be switching out all of my colored grips to black with my next order.

I use vise power oval primarily, with a couple having turbo; no color preference.

Semi-offtopic: What brand/model of inserts are the longest lengthwise? (not talking about diameter)

Lol, Google no ragrets. Then chuckle!

I only used black Turbo Quad ovals for a couple years.

I tried a sample from Ultimate and I liked their grips but the shops around me don't carry them and they're a little more money to buy straight from Ultimate.

The last 4-5 balls I've drilled up all have clear Vise ovals
