Grips, The Same Size Throughout the Set?

Recommended Posts

Something occurred to me last night for the first time. Probably because I just went through a recent fitting where I was making sure I was still a midsize grip. I have always had my iron grips in midsize for as long as I can remember. But last night as I was grabbing a hybrid, with the stock grip, it made me wonder why I never considered getting a midsize grip for my hybrid, or driver, of FW or wedges for that matter.

 

So those that have midsize grips, do you have throughout the entire set or just irons? What are your thoughts either way on the subject?

Same grips on all my clubs, Golf Pride midsize.

Same size grips throughout the set. Because my hands are the same size throughout the set.

Huh! Mine too!

Same grips on all my clubs, Golf Pride midsize.

While in GG this morning I looked at all the grips. I really wanted Lamkin Z5 midsize with my mizunos but that wasn't an option. The Golf Pride I ordered as stock will be fine for the testing. But I may get these lamkin z5 midsize on my hybrids and wedges to try and get them all the same size.

I currently have standard size grips throughout the set, but I used to have midsize on my wedges and standard throughout. I have pretty small hands so I think standard is a good size for me

I have midsize grips on every club in my bag, except my 3-wood which is stock. That 3-wood has got some magic in it and I'm afraid of making any changes to it.

 

I definitely like the midsize grips better though.

All clubs are the same, but some are different.   :wacko:  I sometimes swap out my Ping i20 irons for my MacGregors.  The Macs have new Pure DTX grips, same as all the other clubs.  The Pings have older PurePro grips, but they are all standard.  I have tried both standard and midsize Pures.  I actually like them both and can play them both, but don't mix them.

I use the same midsize grips on everything but my driver but that's just because I'm hitting the club well right now with the stock grip. I'll change it out soon though due to wear and put a midsize on it too. My thought process is having consistent feel through the bag to try and help eliminate extra variables but I know a few good golfers who have different grips from long to short irons so it's really whatever gets the job done.

I found an interesting thing while testing the Matrix shaft in my Cobra driver.  The shaft came with a standard size grip so I changed it to Jumbo for my testing.  It made a noticeably difference (not good) in the performance and swing weight of the total club.  Amazing that the weight of a grip could alter the swing weight and performance/feel of a club that much. I had three layers of tape added under the grip which added a bit more heft to it.  I've got to change this to a midsize (my norm) with standard wrap.  I was hammering the heck out of the club prior to the jumbo being put on so my advice, after this little experiment is be mindful that larger grips with added tape can in fact lower swing weight. In my case it was a game changer so lesson learned.  Sure you can add lead tape to offset the Jumbo but it's still a guessing game.

Good discussion point OG

 

I had noticed the weight difference between some midsize grips and standard ones when deciding on my Mizuno specs. I asked my fitter about it. If i should be worried about that. He said it will alter the SW a bit. But probably not enough for me to notice it.

 

However that was just midsize and no extra wraps. Not a jumbo with extra.

Dude, jumbo grips with extra wraps?? That would be like holding a squash with a toothpick in the end. You're a madman.

Yea I could have knocked a monkey out of a tree with that jumbo I took off.  It felt quite heavy to say the least. Once I put a midsize with one wrap my swing weight came back close to stock.  Only one strip of lead tape and my Cobra F6 was back at D3.

I like having the same grips on all my clubs but I can see going different on driver, woods, hybrids since they already feel so different. Whatever you are comfortable with.

Definitely the same size throughout the set, all clubs. I'm a midsize plus 2 wraps and I do my own grips. I would seem to think it would be a little odd to have different sizes throughout the set.

Midsize +1 on everything, only thing is that I like to color code, different colors for woods, irons, wedges for fun times whimsy.

      I have been using my new MG2 for a few weeks now and really like the feel. I have 2 other Taylormade wedges that I have used for the last few years and this one just feels different. It also passes the eye test as I seem to be getting more spin on the ball than I have before with the other wedges. Would like to know others thoughts on them. Thanks.

      When it comes to PING many things come to mind, quality, engineering, performance and irons are among the first things most people will think of.   And with the release earlier this year of the G410 irons, PING has hit on each one of those characteristics. 
      Following the huge success of the G400 irons, PING has hit a home run with the striking black and red colors of this iron, as well as a being a bit more streamlined in all the right places.   PING has achieved the rare feat of providing an iron that has a profile appealing to even the most discerning of golfers, but yet still offering the forgiveness and help that higher handicaps look for. 

      We are looking for three forum members to join staff member Golfspy_Stroker in testing, reviewing and keeping a set of these G410's built to their custom specs.  Testing will require a nearly two month commitment of putting the irons in play on the course, at the range and providing ongoing commentary in the forum thorough out the process. 
      As an extra bonus to the irons, the selected testers will have the option to choose Golf Pride Tour Velvet grips equipped with Arccos.  The clubs will come with a 99 day free trial to arccos.  After that the tester would be responsible for paying for the subscription in order to continue it.   It will be a great way to add data to your review. 
      PING has opened this testing to all golfers regardless of country of residence.   All you have to do to be eligible for the testing is follow the below instructions.
       
      In a post in this thread please provide the following information...AND DO NOT QUOTE this post when replying!
      First Name/State or Country of residence
      Handicap
      Current irons in Play
      The carry distance of the your 7 iron
      That's it.   Good luck to everybody
      We'll be selecting the testers within the next 10 to 14 days, so check back to see if you've been selected!

      Lynx Golf Continues Momentum with Launch of LynxGolfUSA.com, Release of Black Cat Lines
        (Weybridge, Surrey, UK) – Lynx® Golf – the iconic equipment brand trusted by multiple major championship winners over its storied history – unveils LynxGolfUSA.com, a new website providing American golfers access to the manufacturer’s innovative lines, including the new Black Cat Series.

      Launch of the site coincides with new social media channels, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and will feature unique blog content, newsletter sign-up and more. Bolstering the introduction of the new site and social media channels is the U.S. debut of the latest generation of the famed Black Cat line, which delivers leading-edge technology in an attractive and classic aesthetic.  
       
      “The U.S. site is the latest step in our journey to bring this iconic brand back to a place of prominence in the American golf market,” says Stephanie Zinser, CFO and co-owner of Lynx Golf. “Black Cat is the perfect series to accompany our website and social launches as golfers have fond memories of previous iterations, but that nostalgia will quickly be replaced with modern performance that maximizes both distance and accuracy.”
       
      The Black Cat line features innovations unique to the Lynx brand: Effective Energy Transfer – Each driver, fairway wood and hybrid are engineered with proprietary technology designed to disperse energy across the club face, offering greater forgiveness on off-centre hits.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Weight Bar System – Found in the line’s driver and fairway woods, the system transfers weight from the front to the back of the clubhead, giving players control over their preferred launch and spin rate.                                                                                                                                                                             Hollow-Head Technology with Variable Face Thickness – Each iron distributes weight across the hitting surface while a polymer-filled hollow cavity in the head allows for one of the thinnest forged faces in the industry. This provides more effective energy transfer across the face for increased ball speeds and a higher, more stable MOI throughout the set.  Over the past several years, the Lynx brand has made a resounding impact in the U.K., as the company has recorded double-digit annual sales increases every year since 2013. This growth has been driven by several successful products which will be featured on LynxGolfUSA.com including the popular Prowler VT irons, Prowler Forged irons, and Tigress line of women’s clubs.                                    
      “Without our success in Europe and around the world, days like today are not possible” says Steve Elford, CEO and co-owner of Lynx Golf. “What golfers are about to see and experience in the U.S. started nearly a decade ago when our team set out to restore the glory once associated with the iconic brand.”
        
      Founded in the 1970’s by John Riley Sr. and Carl Ross, Lynx® Golf quickly established a massive fanbase among the game’s best players. This included legendary ambassadors who trusted the brand to help them capture victories at the 1992 Masters and 1994 US Open, among other wins.
       
      Lynx’s renowned product lines include everything from TOUR-caliber clubs, such as the Prowler VT irons, to products geared for mid-to-high handicappers. At the professional level, the brand continues to draw talent, as its ambassadors include the legendary Dame Laura Davies and former European Tour standout, and current Sky Sports TV presenter, Nick Dougherty, as well as LET players Lydia Hall, Becky Brewerton and Trish Johnson.
