What's cork tree grips?
We have succeeded in producing golf grips with cork, taking advantage of cork's features of "lightness," "water resistance," "anti-slip," "shock absorption," and "anti-microbial”.
We have achieved a feeling that is almost the same in both dry and wet environments. Please try the earth-friendly grip of natural materials.
Features of the grips
Cork Tree Grips are made of cork wood and have many excellent characteristics that only natural materials can offer.
When viewed under an electron microscope, the plant cells of cork are long and thin, overlapping each other in an alternating pattern, but contain many air bubbles. This is the reason why it is difficult for air and water to pass through. Because it contains a lot of air bubbles, cork is very light and lighter than the weight of common synthetic resins used in golf grips.
Weight comparison with synthetic resin products
Although cork has many air bubbles inside, it does not absorb much water even when dipped in water. Even if it does, it has the property of quickly evaporating and trying to return to its original state. The excellent water resistance of cork, which is also strong against decaying, is utilized in stoppers for wine and whiskey.
Another characteristic of cork is that it has a large frictional force and is not slippery. You can firmly hit the ball because it does not slip. The more you use it, the more it fits your hand and it conveys your order to the ball clearly. It will surely contribute to improving your score.
We asked those who have actually used it.
No longer slippery
Cork contains about 45% Suberin which prevents from dry out and invasion of other materials could be harmful, and it also blocks heat. As a result, cork is resistant to the occurrence of pests, mold, bacteria. Because cork, a natural material, does not contain any harmful substances and is very safe, it is often used as a stopper for wine, whiskey, shochu, etc.
