The PURE DTX grip is a perfect choice for players who love feel of cord but want more durability. This grip has no equal when it comes to traction.
I love the feel of soft, squishy grips as much as the next guy, but when the money is on the line, I want traction above all else. That’s why I was thrilled to see PURE Grips unveil the DTX grip at the PGA Show a couple years ago. The DTX grip is designed to match or exceed the grip of the best cords but with PURE’s trademark durability. In this review I’ll explain why the DTX has become one of my favorite grips.
The DTX has a straightforward look with only the PURE Grips logo at the bottom and on the butt cap. The tread wraps around the grip in a V-pattern which some players might find helpful as a grip alignment reminder.
As with all their grips, PURE offers the DTX in a wide variety of colors. There are seven choices, and all the colors are bold and durable.
The PURE DTX grip has a unique feel, but I’ll do my best to describe it. It’s like someone attacked your boring rubber grip with a cheese grater, then glued the cut-off bits back on in all the wrong places. It’s like your favorite cord grip on steroids, but the cord is made of rubber. Ever been to a playground where the ground is made of shredded tires? Grab a handful of that stuff…that’s the PURE DTX. If none of that sounds good to you, you’re probably not a cord person. That’s ok, we can still be friends, we just can’t share clubs.
Simply put, the PURE DTX offers more traction than any grip I’ve ever put my hands on. It also does a nice job of absorbing some of the sting of mishits without robbing you of all feel.
If I haven’t been clear about this already, the PURE DTX offers a ton of traction. If the club slips in your hands, you’ll have only your puny forearms to blame, not the grip. Best of all, the traction holds up in all weather conditions.
More than anything else, the hallmark of PURE Grips is durability, and the DTX epitomizes that. While most cord grips are getting cheaper every year – you’re lucky to get a full season out of them – I’ve just finished my second full season with the same DTX grips, and I’m not sure I need to change them yet.
At $9 a grip, the PURE DTX costs far less than the most popular cord grips and lasts a lot longer. It also has more traction – it out-cords the cords! As a no-glove cord-lover, the DTX is one of my go-to grips, and I’d strongly recommend it to anyone looking to get a better grip on their clubs.
