Lamkin grips in Japan

This is a long shot, but I'm looking for Lamkin Crossline Midsize grips.  Anyone know where I can find some?

 

My local golf shop told me they're haven't supply problems with Lamkin Crosslines. I found somewhere recently that had some standard crosslines in, but not sure if they had the midsize. Also, I don't think they'd do mail-order.

Thanks for the quick reply!  I've found standard crosslines at Golf 5 in Nara, but I have pretty large hands so it feels like a twig.  I suppose I could ask my parents to ship me some as a last resort, but shipping is really expensive. 

 

I just bought some nice Mizuno irons that had Golf Pride Tour Wraps which are fine in sunny weather, but a nightmare in rainy weather.  First time I used them in the rain and the 6 iron slipped out of my hands and almost flew into a lake.  I had to resort to using a 5 wood all day because the iron grips were too slick and I shot 110, 25 strokes worse than my usual.  Ouch.

Yikes, I've not had anything like that happen with any of the grips on my fairly extensive collection of irons. 

 

I've a couple of sets with Lamkin Crossline Midsize (Wilson FG-J8s and Mizuno MP-14s), but prefer the feel of standard crosslines built up with a few wraps. Have you tried 3 or 4 wraps under a standard crossline? I find thinner grips with several layers of wraps work better in sweaty hands than thicker grips without wraps, but your mileage may vary.

That's a good idea, I'll talk to them and see if they can.  Thanks. 

 

It rained heavily that day and no amount of toweling off could keep them dry enough before a shot.  I don't know if I can find rain gloves in my size.  Usually I'm a large size glove, but I'm not sure what size number that translates to in Japan.

I've fairly big hands and find a 26 size glove is about right. Glove sizes are not 100% uniform though, and sometimes a 25 fits me just as well. 

There may be bigger sizes, but around me, 26 is the highest they go to.
