Lamkin Introduces Innovative Grips Designed For Wedges

7.06am 16th July 2012 - New Products

Lamkin Corporation, a leading manufacturer of premium golf grips,  introduced its innovative Performance Plus 3GEN wedge grip at the start of the 2012 season.  The new wedge grip is engineered to facilitate the proper hand position and grip tension needed to achieve more consistent and controlled short-game shots and improve opportunities for scoring.

An inch longer than the standard golf grips, the unique wedge grip supports choking down on the club delivering greater control and more precise shots around the green. To enhance this extra grip area, Lamkin has incorporated a reduced taper at the bottom of the grip that promotes slower hand action through the swing giving even greater levels of accuracy and control.

The Performance Plus 3GEN wedge grip also features two clever hand-positioning ‘buttons’. These buttons, 1 ½ inches apart, enable the golfer to place their hands in a repeatable position, be it for a full wedge shot or a choked down shot around the green. This promotes a confident, guess free swing whatever the choice of shot.

In addition to these innovations in wedge grip design, the Performance Plus 3GEN wedge grip benefits from Lamkin’s proprietary vibration dampening 3GEN synthetic rubber compound. This tacky grip, available in black or white, protects the hands and provides great shot feedback. When combined with all the other performance benefits on offer, Lamkin stays true to its aim of providing grips that give improved scoring opportunities and ultimately, grips that help improve a golfer’s game.
