I ordered Lamkin REL Ace 3GEN oversize grips earlier in the year because the light blue was on a great sale and I had some other items I wished to order from DTG. I put them on all my clubs as I had tested a couple of clubs with oversize grips (different grip than the Lamkin) and realized I seemed more consistent with oversize grips. Then I blew off the grips and switched them to my driver and a couple of wedges with similar results. Since I had played midsize grips for years I was still wondering if the performance improvement was a "honeymoon" and would go away so I decided to try something I may not have played normally. Not so much a Lamkin grip, but the light blue. But, with the great sale price at DTG I went forward.
That was months ago and I am well past any "honeymoon" and my game has steadily improved. Grip size change is probably something I should have done a few years ago as I aged. Even though I carry something to strengthen my grip in the car and use it - age is a relenting reality.
Back to the Lamkin REL Ace 3GEN Oversize grips. I disagree with several that have posted that these grips are slick. I always play without a glove and have found them as tackie as the Star and Pure midsize grips I had used in the last few years. I would agree you will need to clean them a bit more often, but I have always regularly cleaned my grips. The light blue color made me more aware of the fact they were getting soiling faster than I probably realized with my previous grips which were black. I always clean my grips with a cleaner than will also work to remove the natural oils of the hands. At the present I have a bottle of Awesome Orange degreaser that works great and is only a $1.00 at the Dollar Tree. As long as this is available at the Dollar Tree it will be my go to grip cleaner. Others brands also work well, but cost a lot more than a $1.00 and I don't see any difference in performance.
So with the free shipping available for orders over $49 this weekend, I placed an order on Friday for two sets (26) of the Lamkin REL Ace 3GEN Red Oversize. I have a set of clubs at my sons home in Brownsville, TX which will see a grip change and I wanted a back up set for the future for my gamers at home. At $2.99 and free shipping this weekend I didn't want to let the opportunity slip past me. You gotta love the quick service at DTG. Only a couple of hours after I place the order via the web, I received notice of USPS priority shipping with the tracking number.
