I usually use regular grips and stretch them about .75 or 1"... Makes em pretty much undersize. To be honest, I dont find any benefit over standard size grips.

I use undersize grips. My glove size is cadet small. The problem with a lot of undersize grips is they are manufactured with a .560 or .580 core. If you put them on a .600 or.620 butt diameter shaft you are pretty much back to a standard grip.

If you really want an undersized finished grip you need to find an undersized grip with a .600 or larger core size. Two candidates are the Iomic 1.8 and undersized Ping grips.

There are probably others. It would be helpful for anyone who has found other .600 core undersize grips to add those models to this thread.

Lamkin and Pure I think are both 580s undersize so they remain a bit under on 600 shafts which most steel shafts are
some graphites are 620 and some Aldilas are wider but constant taper.

the grip size and texture are fit purely on comfort, allowing a minimal amount of grip pressure to securely hold the club. Its a myth that a smaller size will allow the hands to turn over and cure a slice; a larger grip will cure a hook. However for wedges, you could experiment with a smaller grip than your irons to place the grip more in the fingers for more feel; a larger grip size than the irons to add more effective bounce; a larger lower diameter to help keep the clubface square to the target line.

I do not suffer from having small hands--my glove size is a M/L--but I have undersized grips on all my wedges and standard in all else. This was somewhat of an experiment I tried this season after hearing that undersized grips on your wedges results in more feel. I have to say, my wedges have never been so deadly accurate before the switch.
