Yes another oversize grip discussion Jumbomax saves the day

Despite all theory, I'm doing the opposite?
I used to be as close to an everyday golfer as possible, praciticing at least 4-5 days a week either range or on the course. Always missed to the right (I'm right handed) if anything and consistancy down the middle with woods was near non-existant. Well a week ago I got 7 Jumbomax grips on ebay for cheap, size XL and installed them on my woods and wedges.

The sizing sheet from the company wasn't large enough for my hand, as I wear an xxxl glove which is bordering on tight. The grips are obnoxious to say the least in the way they look, but I can actually relax and release the club like a normal person, I've noticed I'm finishing better which I attribute to the relaxed grip and less tension through impact. My yardage has gone up a ton and accuracy is amazing right now.


Heres the questions I have:



1) How do I replicate this grip using normal grips, if possible?

2) My misses are now more hooks than anything and I find turning over on the ball to hit a draw is as simple as telling myself to do such a thing, this is opposite from what I have been told should happen? ...any insight

3) My driver shaft is an 80 gram Oban Devotion....I know most people try and stay in the 60's but will dropping that low hurt my overall success with the larger grip?


I know the jumbomax grips are seen as a joke, but it is amazing for myself and I cannot be happier with the way I am hitting the ball right now, but I'm afraid of these grips becoming unavailable and not having a plan in place for such an event. Even with these grips my fingers still tuck under my palms a bit, but when i grip my long irons with my old jumbo's with wraps under them, I cannot believe I golfed a whole round with grips like that.

You could replicate it by doing something like a golf pride jumbo grip +12 wraps of tape. I did this with a practice club to work on quieter hands. The grip comes out huge but it would be a real pain to put 12 wraps on every club in the bag.

I wouldn't worry about changing driver shafts. Stock with your heavier 80gm shaft. The larger grip really wont change drivers characteristics as much as you think.

The layers and layers of wraps will be annoying, but the consistency on the course will be worth it. Thanks for the number to shoot for. I guess I either need to buy a few more cases of beer for my local club guy so he doesnt kill me, or find a way to set up a re-gripping station in my apartment.

I'm not sure why jumbo grips would be a joke. Using what fits you is the correct thing to do. If you where a XXXL glove you should probably be using XXXL grips.


Grips are made larger with more layers of tape under the grip. Although it can be a pain, that's how it's done.

It's not that jumbo grips as a category are seen as a joke, but rather the specific jumbomax brand as it is targeted to normal golfers with hands which fit their profile. My hand doesnt even come close to near the chart they have on the website. My post is more specifically geared towards findind out how I can replicate if needed, as well as wondering if the conventional theory of oversize grips making your hands quite might also apply to very undersize grips keeping your hands quite.


obviously my xxxl hands need xxxl grips, but the standard in which we operate right now in golf is still very undersized compared to what I have seen now giving me better results. I guess my uphill battle with golf has transisitioned from finding golf shoes in a 17/18 (pending on maker) to finding grips and gloves which will fit my hands.
