Just traded my Mills for another Xenon.  This time using Niobium.  Typical Lumpy garage style and the colors are insane (and very inclusive if I must say so)

NS Pro XXIP and a Rosemark 1.38Lite will be going on.
I just bought this...  Hope they ship it in a timely fashion, I'm really impatient these days...

Will be shafting with a Diamana putter shaft and throwing a UST putter grip on this bad boy.

Apparently it wasn't as unique as Wmc thought it was.

That or I bought Wmc putter, not sure which.

I’m pretty sure the Element is one of Lumpy’s CNC lines.  Interesting that he did a run of niobium CNC heads.  FYI, Rhody, the ball thing in the sole looks heel side to me and is likely the neck insert.

I just thought Art was putting drops of water on his clubs before he photographs them like his buddy

K is much more of a Xenon expert than I am.

Not really JDM but I thought I'd share it anyway. Bought some Gripmaster Jumbuck grips. These are cabretta leather grips. Anyone looking for an uber tacky and softer grip should seriously look into these. Wanted a bit of a softer feel for the woods and wedges. For irons I think I'd would go for a different model in their range. Would want something a bit firmer there. They are supposed to last forever which should offset their price. They do feel good. Regripped driver and the wedges so far. Will be playing with them a bit to see how they feel in different conditions but looks like I'll be going leather on my full bag soon. Played a few holes yesterday and the weather was the perfect test. Started out hot and humid. No issues whatsoever. Then it started raining in it feels the grip gets even more tacky with some moisture. Awesome. Will experiment going gloveless with these grips.

How are you finding the seam in the back?  That is what always got me about their "Swinger" style grips as compared to the wrap style.

I used to use the wrap grips exclusively and can attest to their durability and tackiness.

Enjoy

Hi Dale, got these from Nordica Golf. I believe they are based in Sweden.

The seam is really a non issue. I was worried at first as well but I don't feel it at all. It feels to me like a round grip. I understand they have some stitchback versions. I have read that these are very noticeable. But the sewn in versions are absolutely fine.

Had another brief range session with these. Can go gloveless with no issues whatsoever. Really liking these. Ordered a few more now to complete the bag. Will be going all leather and gloveless.
