ORLANDO, Florida – Golf Pride, the industry leader in innovation and sports performance equipment, has announced the introduction of CPX, their softest performance grip yet. The new CPX–“Comfort Performance Extreme“–provides a superior feel through a combination of extreme softness and exceptional technology, including the company’s first-ever raised, EXO diamond-quilted pattern. For golfers seeking the confidence that comes from the feel of a high-performance, comfortable grip, the CPX is a game-changer.
“The connection between the hands and mind is critical in the game of golf,” said Jamie Ledford, President of Golf Pride. “We are so excited about CPX because the new design and ultra-soft rubber compound we’ve developed take this connection to the next level. Anyone who tries the CPX will immediately feel the difference.”
The new CPX-the first grip completely conceived and developed at Golf Pride’s new Global Innovation Center in Pinehurst– is constructed from a very soft and responsive rubber compound that molds to the golfer’s hands for the ultimate in comfort and stress relief. The soft and tacky material features a 45-degree diamond pattern inspired by the grips on BMX bikes. This new tactile design is raised to maximize contact area with the player’s hands, enhancing performance. In addition, the innovative Control Core in the grip’s end-cap complements the soft rubber compound to afford the best of both worlds: maximum softness and maximum control.
With the introduction of CPX, Golf Pride is also unveiling a second new “feel.” The brand’s latest campaign-“A Soft Grip for a Hard Game“- is an intentional departure from the golf category’s historical focus on performance claims and product specs in marketing materials. Confidence through comfort is integral to reaching the optimal performance in the golfer’s game. “A Soft Grip for a Hard Game” is aimed at players of all types from highly competitive golfers to weekend warriors and all in between.
“We know that golfers of every caliber quest for the ‘right feel’ when they have a club in their hands,” said Eric Gibson, Head of Marketing. “The new CPX, and the marketing campaign behind it, focuses on exactly that. Golf is hard. There’s a lot to think about. We believe that the right grip can create comfort for your hands and your mind regardless of your skill level, and feel it reflects the positive change and growth that golf is experiencing.”
The new CPX grips are available now at online and retailers with a price of $9.49-$10.49 per grip.
