About Grip Solid®
Grip Solid® is a thin rubber strap with a raised, flexible bar, the FLEX•BAR™, which positions the golf club in the perfect position. Soft fins along the FLEX•BAR™ conform to the taper of the club to immediately let golfers know if they grip too tightly. Worn over the glove, Grip Solid® ensures proper grip pressure and grip position to help golfers develop accuracy and consistency. With Grip Solid® golfers can practice while they play with any club to improve distance and control.
