IOMIC Sticky grips are incredibly soft, and feature great traction and low torque. These versatile grips are suitable for all playing styles, from beginners to top ranked tour professionals. The Sticky 2.3 is the standard size grip in the Sticky series while the Sticky 1.8 is slightly smaller. Both are available in a wide variety of colors.

The X-Grip is IOMIC's first grip offering. This original standard size grip has a unique pattern of crosses and diamonds which helps golfers grip the club with the perfect amount of pressure. It prevents the grip from twisting at a high swing speed and gives players superior contact and a firm feeling.

All IOMIC grips feature the revolutionary "IOMAX" technology, a proprietary compound that provides a soft feel with control. This material provides adhesiveness, is water and friction resistant and is naturally white in color which allows for a full spectrum of color - IOMIC's signature trait.
