RainGripXtreme MRFootJoy has taken golf grip technology for men and women to the new levels with the introduction of the high-performance FJ RainGrip Xtreme™, golf’s ultimate wet-weather glove. This premium product is an extension of the popular FJ RainGrip™ microbrand and a key addition to the market-leader’s golf glove product line.

Incorporating revolutionary new 3M™ Gripping Material that increases traction by up to 80% in both wet and humid conditions, this game-changing innovation is a must for golfers who want to Make Every Day Playable.

Encompassing a whole host of groundbreaking new characteristics designed to help golfers maintain optimum grip, the FJ RainGrip Xtreme’s headline feature is its use of innovative 3M Gripping material. Running across the palm and thumb, patented 3M Micro technology increases traction and control in inclement conditions through thousands of ingenious gripping fingers. A new grey Autosuede™ Knit Palm, with stretch fit, further enhances this exceptional wet-weather grip.

The FJ RainGrip Xtreme is also packed full of impressive features and benefits on its back and fingers, including new QwikDry™ knit mesh that provides advanced quick-drying properties as well as optimum breathability and flexibility. An Angled ComforTab™ closure system, large FJ Tour logo, Dual-Elastic across the back of the hand and a clever Easy Tee Access (with complimentary Zero Friction Tee) complete this essential wet-weather offering from FJ.

“This is an exciting launch for FJ as our mantra has always been to Make Every Day Playable and the new FJ RainGrip Xtreme certainly adheres to this philosophy,” commented Russell Lawes, European Marketing Manager – FootJoy. “Our design team has looked closely at gripping technologies and found that 3M Micro technology presents the perfect fit for superior golf glove performance in wet and humid conditions. With scores of FJ ambassadors like Rafael Cabrera-Bello already using our existing FJ RainGrip in competition, I strongly encourage golfers to take advantage of this advanced new offering.”

The FJ RainGrip Xtreme will be available to purchase from September 2013 and will have a recommended retail price of £13.50 / €19.00 per glove or £24.00 / €35.00 for a right and left handed pair.
