Sounds like you might be getting more benefit from the increase in grip size than the shock absorption capabilities of the grip. But whatever works.
Just read this whole thread. I’m guessing there may be an issue of FAR too much grip pressure. Especially if an oversized but firm grip immediately helps. Actual bruising on your fingers and hands and constant pain? That’s Rare.
In addition to the bigger grips I would absolutely go to a heavy extra stiff graphite like a Recoil Proto 125 F5 or steelfiber 125x There is no issue with your swing speed or switching from X100’s.
I use Recoil proto 125 f5’s with sensicore inserts In all my 4 of my wedges because I practice the most with them and have arthritis. I’ve kept the steel in the irons with sensicores mainly because I’m stubborn and quite used to them. At some point I’ll have to change them too.
It hurts the next day just to close my hands after a good 2 or 3 hour practice session. It really does not hurt much WHILE I play or right afterwards though. Not until later.
Edit....oh yeah. Blades with finger and hand pain?? P730 is about the last club I’d ever play with finger and hand pain. Nothing stings worse than a true blade when you miss the middle. I’d try some goo filled thin faced hollow 790’s.
