Iomic Sticky 2.3 - £12 

Weight: 50g
Colours: Ten
Sizes: Standard and Midsize

Our verdict: The Sticky is made from an elastomer compound so the designers reckon it doesn't go hard, shiny or brittle over time like a conventional rubber grip. It's an excellent performer in the wet, too.

SuperStroke S-Tech - £9

Weight: 52g
Colours: Four
Sizes: Standard and Midsize

Our verdict: Sergio Garcia won the Masters using these and Jordan Spieth swears by his. They have a soft, tacky feel for heightened feedback and control. The cross-traction surface provides non-slip all weather performance, too.

SuperStroke TX1 Tour - £15

Weight: 52g
Colours: Five
Sizes: Standard and Midsize

Our verdict: Combines premium rubbers and a corded upper section for control. Corded grips usually mean higher prices so we reckon if you don't speci cally need them it's worth sticking to rubber only models as they can deliver a slightly softer feel

G-Rip A-Tac - £6

Weight: 50g
Colours: Six
Sizes: Standard only.

Our verdict: You won't nd many grips that get tackier in the wet or when your hands are clammy, but that's exactly what the A-Tac does. Give the wet grip a rub over with a towel and it becomes stickier, great if you play regularly in rain.

Winn Dri-Tac - £10

Weight: 48g
Colours: Three
Sizes: Standard, Midsize, Oversize, Ladies and Juniors.

Our verdict: The Dri-Tac is particularly well suited to golfers who demand the softest-feeling grip with a good degree of shock dampening (which is easy on the joints), but still demand inclement weather performance.
