Has Anyone Tried Golf Pride Multicompound MCC PLUS 4 grips?

Golf Pride came out with a twist a little while back on it's standard Multicompound MCC grips and added a Plus 4 version. It's a slightly larger diameter in the lower hand, about the equivalent of 4 wraps of tape. It's promoted to encourage lighter grip pressure and (somehow) more power.

Has anyone tried it? What were your results or do you think it would be helpful to your game? I'm interested to try it them out but looking for some feedback from anyone that's tried them. I already use a midsize grip and I wonder if a midsize with Plus 4 might do more harm than good.

At my golfsmith I managed (rest in peace) it was a wicked popular grip and we could not keep them in stock.

The regulars had nothing but great things to say about the grip.

No, I, have not, but here some more details about the grip.

Golf Pride New Decade MultiCompound MCC Plus4

The MCC Plus4™ is a tour-proven, hybrid golf grip featuring a larger lower hand and new softer rubber material. The MCC Plus4 simulates 4 additional wraps of tape on the lower hand to encourages lighter grip pressure, reduced tension, and increased power.

•Larger Lower Hand: The larger outside diameter simulates the feel of building up the grip with four extra wraps. This reduced taper encourages lighter grip pressure, promoting less tension in the hands and creating more fluidity and power throughout the swing.


•All-Weather Control: Our exclusive Brushed Cotton Cord fuses moisture-wicking cotton fibers into a new soft rubber material for added stability in any condition.


•Maximum Surface Texture: Engineered for softer feel and strategically placed for high traction. A soft micro-texture increases traction and comfort, while texture placement is ideal for maximum hand coverage.

I ended up going with the standard MCC. I was reading a few different forums that said the Plus 4 model cut down on the amount of draw people were able to hit. Since I haven't been able to master a draw yet I can only assume that the Plus 4 would only accentuate a fade/slice. Something I definitely don't need.

The reason for that is because the fatter the grip, the less your hands will roll over. You can still play a draw with a fatter grip. Just start with a different hand position. Some people say that with a fatter grip, there will always be less significant hand roll. Which translates to more consistent club face alignment at impact. I tested this over 10 years ago. My results were more consistent drives, but less distance. With the Jumbo grips, I lost some of the speed of the 'release'. My best advise would be to play a grip that fits your hand properly. Golf Galaxy and some other stores have a gripping station where they sell their grips, which tells you exactly which size grip is right for the size of your hands. The rest is up to you and your swing. Its not that hard to teach yourself how to draw the ball if you are a natural fader of the ball. Just takes a little time and consistent practice.

The only problem with learning to hit a draw(from personal experience)is once accomplished you have tendency to start hitting hooks.

I use them on my driver and 3 wood, since I normally choke down an inch. It keeps some volume under my bottom hand. Weird feeling on irons...

If it is going to slip at least send it forward. It will be easier to retrieve.

Getting it out was a wet adventure. Couldn't reach it from the ground, even with the ball retreiver. Found a small limb and threw it to knock it down. When it fell it landed in the lake,just like the ball it had hit minutes before. After drying it off it's now the cleanest club in the bag.
