Cork’s honeycomb cell structure is key. Each cell is a 14-sided polyhedron filled with air, making it an extremely strong and flexible membrane that’s waterproof and airtight. Cork bark is about 89% air, giving it a low density. But when it’s compressed, air isn’t squeezed out, because the cell membranes won’t release it. So it returns to its original shape when the compression is removed. The four initial putter grips include the Slim Jim ($29.95), Bandit ($29.95), Gimme ($29.95) and Stumpy ($29.95) models. They’re all extremely durable, absorb impact vibration and are impermeable to water, which means they are perfect when your hands are hot and sweaty.
