Nothing to complain about
The grip is excellent, good stiffness, lightweight with a good swing weight. I took the straps off - they are only okay not awesome like the rest of the pole, plus I never had them on anyway. I have shaved the lower section of their shiny coating from spills but that's not a big deal provided the carbon doesn't start to fray. I'd buy these again but would consider the Razor because I probably won't use the probe (they were a better deal at the time).
