Grip Weight: No effect on Swingweight, but on Swing Speed?
I agree with consensus that grip weight simply fools scale and has no effect on SW feel -being above the fulcrum and in the hands at the other end of the lever. Does anybody believe that grip weight also fools the scale as to total weight, that is, X grams in the grip (in the hands) has a lesser effect swing speed than the same amount of weight in the head or shaft below the fulcrum? Lightweight shafts, lower overall weight etc. are believed to increase swingspeed because the same amount of force will move a lighter weight object faster. Put another way, if 2 clubs are of the same length and overall weight, can we move the one with more weight at the grip end faster than the one with more weight at the head?
