Grips: What should I look for


Good Times
 Share

Recommended Posts

I don't really know too much about grips and since I need to cut my irons down and I decided I'll just get them regripped in the process, I thought I might ask a few questions as I don't know what I should be looking for. I figure I'm going to need something I like the feel of but is there anything else I need to consider? If so what? If not then, based off feel, I like something like the Lamkin, Standard Size, Perma Wrap "Classic". Are these a good grip to use and if so what other grips are similar to this feel? Post any suggestions you might have for grips.

I wouldn't really worry too much about not knowing too much about grips. Wherever you go to get your clubs worked on, see which grips "agree" with you. The should have a bunch of display grips for you to mangle. Wrap your hands around them, "strangle" them a little, whatever it takes to see if you'd like the feel of the grip during your swing. Me, I've learned I like Lamkin Crosslines over GolfPride Velvets, and GP Multicompounds over both.

I also have a set of irons with Permawraps myself, but would recommend at least trying something else, you might be surprised with what is out there. I got a set of irons this year that had RP full cords and ended up keeping them that way--feel was VERY nice, and I've never played cords (xpt the gp multi's, and that's just a little). If you do prefer the Permawraps but are curious about one or two other grips, grip 2 clubs with them--say the 4 and 8. That way you can always change the grip, but won't be too far from a "familiar" club if the experiement doesn't go well. :birthday:

 

Good Luck, and Good Times! :birthday:

I'd just try everything out. Lamkin has some new ones out, as does Golf Pride. You can't beat Golf Pride, they stock most every club in the store. Each company has Golf Pride stuff in some capacity. Some factors you should into is; weather, frequency of play, and moisture content. That said, it's all a personal preference.

 

Lamkin=TaylorMade

Golf Pride=Ping

 

These are just a few examples of who sponsors who.

I can't believe that nobody on this site ever mentions the best grips of all, WINN grips! ( I feel like I should get paid by them for standing up for them)

 

They are soft and tacky, great feel, they might wear a little faster than others but if you don't play a ton they will get you through the season just fine.

 

Outside of grip brand make sure you get one that fits the size of your hand. They come in different "sizes".

From smallest to largest most brands follow this Womens-standard-Midsized-Jumbo.

 

Take your normal grip on a club, remove your right hand keeping the left one on the grip. Look at your left hand and see if your fingers are digging into the "pads" of your left hand. If your fingers are really pushing into your palm then the grip is on the small side, if there is a huge gap its to large.
