Lamkin Corporation, a leading manufacturer of premium golf grips, has unveiled its 2012 collection. Infused with more sizes, styles, materials and colours, there is a menu of custom choices for every golfer. This year’s line-up features grips engineered to help lower scores and improve games, including a new European range, offerings specifically crafted for wedges and adjustable clubs, as well as grips priced perfectly for value-minded shoppers.
i6 3GEN is a brand new golf grip from Lamkin created specifically for the needs of European golfers who need excellent feel and control whatever the weather conditions. Made from the company’s proprietary vibration-dampening 3GEN synthetic rubber compound, the i6 3GEN grip delivers outstanding tackiness and protects hands whilst also providing shot feedback and improved scoring opportunities.
The grip design combines two distinct surface patterns to maximise traction and comfort. The underside of the grip features an aggressive hexagonal pattern to promote slip free connection in any weather condition, whereas the top side features a softer feeling keyhole design that improves contact tackiness with your palms.
The R.E.L. 3GEN assortment of grips now includes 11 new colour options and more sizes to fit a wider range of golfers than ever before. Undersize, Standard, Midsize and Oversize models are designed to ensure that every golfer can find the perfect fit to help lower his or her scores.
“Playing a well-fit, high quality grip is the first step towards shaving strokes off your game,” explains Lamkin President and CEO Bob Lamkin. “That’s Lamkin’s mission: to help golfers play better. We wake up every day with that goal in mind.”
Adjustable club users will appreciate Lamkin’s orientation-free R.E.L. 3GEN 360° Grip. Its uniform design, free of logos or alignment markings, enables users to accommodate their set up (open, neutral or closed) without compromising clubhead position. The R.E.L. features a minimal surface pattern to maximize surface contact with a golfer’s hands, providing extra comfort while reducing the need for excessive grip pressure throughout the swing.
The new Lamkin Performance Plus 3GEN Wedge Grip offers an additional inch of coverage versus traditional grips, this wedge tool accommodates choking down on the club for greater control of shots around the green. Two visual “buttons” are located 1.5 inches apart to guide more precise and repeatable hand placement, resulting in more consistent swings.
Lamkin’s new X10 Grips were introduced as a solution for golfers stretched by today’s tough economy. This value-priced X10 is made of a durable, proprietary synthetic rubber material designed to last round after round. Like the R.E.L. 3GEN Grip, the X10 is available in Undersize, Standard, Midsize and Oversize, and features hand positioning guides and a well-spaced surface pattern for optimal traction and shot control.
Lamkin’s 2012 grip collection is available through golf specialty, online retailers and green grass shops.
