Hi Everyone. Question, I have some grips I like that are only available in .580 diameter but I am pretty sure the shafts of my irons are .600 from what I have read. Can I put these grips on these shafts with the size issue, and is there anything I should be aware of when I do? Thanks for any help.

    Everything is measured to make the corresponsing shaft and grip equal .900"...which is considered "standard" if there is one.
    .580 on a .600 will make the grip come out .20 over (it doesn't quite come out like that due to stretching), so .920". In reality, expect like a .915" diameter. Slightly larger than standard....

    If you put a .58 on a .58 shaft, it comes out at ."900 theoretically, it just has a thicker wall on the grip to bring the diameter up to a standard grip diameter.

    A .580 grip on a .600 shaft IS standard for many companies and players. That's what I prefer.

    So it will feel bigger, like midsize?

    No. Just a smig larger.

    Feel is always very subjective. The size is less than midsize. More like a standard build with an extra layer to 2 layers (depending on what tape you use) of tape.
