Lamkin Launches New Wrap-Tech And UTx Wrap Golf Grips


Lamkin Corporation – the original manufacturer of premium golf grips – announces the expansion of its popular grip collection with the introduction of the new Wrap-Tech and UTx Wrap models, both designed as a comfortable high-performance alternative to traditional wrap-style grips.

Fueled by Lamkin’s exclusive Double Helix surface texture, the new Wrap-Tech (from $4.99) delivers the perfect balance of comfort, control and feel. The grip’s traditional wrap-style — preferred by some of golf’s greatest legends, including Arnold Palmer – offers a comfortable feel ideally suited for players who don’t wear a glove. The added traction in the unique dual pattern provides enhanced control and slip-resistance. Made with patented ACE material, Wrap-Tech is extraordinarily tacky and shock absorbing, making it perfect for all climates and conditions. Available in standard, midsize or oversize options, the grips showcase a black base color with white, red or blue detailing.

“The Wrap-Tech takes the popular style of the classic wrap and infuses it with a variety of modern technologies and textures, giving it an amazing feel and performance benefits not typically associated with a wrap grip, like enhanced traction and slip-resistance,” says Bob Lamkin, President and CEO of Lamkin. “With the launch of these new models, we’ve added two very distinct and functional golf grips to our award-winning portfolio, ensuring Lamkin remains the top choice of discerning professionals and amateurs around the world.”

Similar to the original UTx, the new UTx Wrap model (from $6.99) features Tri-Layer Technology. This proprietary combination of materials optimizes grip feel for enhanced shot-making while also providing exceptional all-weather playability. The layers include a foundation made of soft, super tacky ACE material for enhanced comfort, a middle layer of moisture-wicking fabric weave for traction and control in wet weather and a firm outer cover for torsion control and grip stability. Available in standard or midsize options, the grips are offered in royal blue or black colors.

Offering the widest assortment of performance-enhancing golf grips, Lamkin has been an industry leader for nearly 90 years. In addition to the legendary Arnold Palmer, the company’s famed products are preferred by PGA Tour superstars Justin Rose, Keegan Bradley, Brandt Snedeker, Miguel Angel Jimenez and many others.

Lamkin grips are unrivaled in quality thanks to world-class engineering, premium materials and handcrafted, repeatable production techniques. The company’s popular lines also include Crossline, R.E.L ACE and i-Line, among others.
