Golf pride MCC Grips Detailed Review

Design Review

All four types of MCC grips, 1) standard MCCs, 2) MCC Align, 3) MCC Plus4, and 4) MCC Plus4 Align, feature a corded upper section and a rubber lower section. Purposefully, this hybrid construction allows the MCC to offer golfers a balance of all-weather performance and comfort. Specifically, the corded upper section is rough and maintains the connection between a golfer and his or her clubs throughout the swing. The lower portion of the grip fits comfortably into the hand of golfers without a glove and prevents finger pain allowing for more practice and play year-round. Additionally, the rubber texture of the lower section of the MCC grips transmit the feel of hitting golf shots into the players hands more efficiently for added feedback and more rapid improvement.

Performance Review

Truthfully, there is a lot to take in with the 4 MCC grip models. For our testers, the MCC grips provided the ideal balance of comfort during use and control due to the corded upper section. Often, the issue with fully corded grips is the roughness beneath a golfer’s lower hand is painful or causes the grip to wear quickly. Remarkably, the MCC grips solve both of these issues perfectly. First, the MCC grips offer soft rubber for added comfort and secondly, the MCC grips demonstrate impressive durability. Overall, the MCC grips placed 5th (MCC Plus4 Align), 6th (MCC Align), 7th (MCC Plus4), and 8th (MCC standard). You can read how every golf Pride grip performed in our full Grip EQ Report
