The PURE DTX Black is an incredible grip in every way! It provides the best of both worlds: combination of a rough-like texture with the patented tackiness that PURE is famous for. Gives you all the benefits of a cord grip without that hard, 'tear up your hand' type feel. Slippage with the DTX is absolutely out of the question, and PURE's seamless molding rubber technology is unparalleled. All PURE grips are made in their Arizona plant in the United States with superior materials.
