Golfers often overlook their grips of choice. Most often, a player buys a club and will be happy to play whatever grip comes stock with their new stick. This oversight can often lead to gaps in performance and inconsistent play. Look around the bags of professional players at any level and you will quickly notice that each of their clubs, excluding their putter, not only have the same grip but this grip will be an advanced club grip with a unique playing characteristic. Lamkin Grips offers a diver range of products that offer players comfort and texture options to meet the demands of recreational and competitive golf. This is most highlighted in their newest Sonar range of golf grips and this review will take you through each of these models.

Lamkin Sonar Grips Detailed Review

The Sonar family of golf grips have been designed to fit a wide net of golfers utilizing advanced materials and precisely placed texture. The Standard Sonar, Sonar Wrap, and Sonar Tour each feature unique components to suit golfers of different playing profiles.

1. Standard Sonar Golf Grips

Golfers that want versatile performance with enjoy the feel and tackiness of the Standard Sonar Golf Grip. 

2. Sonar Wrap Golf Grips

Golfers that prefer the softest feeling grip and the most protection for their hands will love the Sonar Wrap golf grip. 

3. Sonar Tour Golf Grips

The Sonar Tour golf grip has been optimized for play in all weather conditions and to hold up under the most intense pressures for the serious player. 

Our Experience

Of the three Sonar offerings, I prefer the Sonar Tour. The logo down orientation is something I have always preferred in golf grips and the clean look and enhanced texture are fantastic. The Sonar Wrap and Standard are excellent options but did not hold up as well during wet-dry testing. I found these grips to be best when playing in comfortable conditions and during recreational rounds. The Sonar Tour shielded my hands from slickness in a variety of conditions and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone that needs to play their best no matter what the weather is like.

Each grip within the Sonar line has unique advantages. The Wrap is unmistakably one of the softest golf grips I have ever played. It was a pleasure to test and anyone looking for hand relief during play should absolutely consider this option. The Standard Sonar is unique with its gentle reminder of where to place your hands and is ideal for beginner or high-handicap golfers that can use a nudge in the right direction when their rounds de-rail.

Conclusion

Do not overlook your golf grip. Settling for the manufacturer of your golf club for their grip choice is exactly that, settling. Buying clubs from different manufactures often results in your clubs having grips of different sizes, different textures, and different firmness. Differences in your grips can be a fast track to reduced consistency and marginalized performance. Lamkin Grips offer a suite of options for each player and the Sonar family truly has something for everyone. Understanding the differences of each model can lead you to find something that fits your swing and allows you to play better golf year-round in a variety of weathers.
