You should be absolutely alright with the length of the tape. When you wet the tape, it's going to soften it up, and when you slide the grip on, a lot of the excess stickiness is going to stick to the inside of the grip, so the area that the tape wouldn't usually cover will still have some tape residue on it to stick it to the shaft. With the amount of tape wraps on it, I would completely agree with tefunk and try out one club to see what you will like. If you do it, and...
For this year, I purchased a new set of Callaway RAZR X Tour 4-PW irons, an R9 3 wood, and a Vokey 52* to fill the 52* that was in my old set. Got to love eBay and Global Golf!
Being from Maine, the golf season seems to be shorter than several other places, but we were pretty lucky this winter! I actually played January 1st, which was definitely a first for me. The pins weren't in and we just shot for a sprinkler head cover in front of the green, but it was still swinging a club. There was also a course in southern NH open, so if you count that "round" in January, I've played 4 total rounds this year. It looked like courses were about to open...
I purchased an R9 3 wood from them. I bought it in "excellent" condition, and when I received it, it looked brand new. I didn't even see a ball mark on the face or a paint chip on the top of the face. Knowing someone who bought a fake R11 driver, the first thing I did was pop the head off and inspected the inside of it just to see if there was anything fishy and thankfully I didn't see anything at all. My order came very quickly, and the price was the best that I could...
I have the Golf Pride Tour Wrap 2G's, and I absolutely love them. They are very soft/comfortable and very tacky. I have had them on my clubs for over a year, and still when I pull a club out they seem to get tackier and tackier. The best part about them is the price at only $3-4 a grip. Compared to the Multi-compound at around $8, I'm never looking back. I have the white ones, and when they get dirty, I just wipe them clean with Dawn, and they're as good as new. The only...
My highest lofted club is a 60* but I never use it for full shots, only around the green. I used to do nothing but chip with my 56* but have recently hit a lot with my 60*. I feel like it really comes in handy when you have a shot over a bunker to a tucked pin. When I have a full shot where a 60* is needed, I force myself to hit a knocked down 56*, and with that I get more comfortable hitting the same shot with any club when I'm in between distances. 
Well I can't really give true opinion on them because I only hit them once, indoors, on a simulator. But I can give an opinion about Taylor Made irons because before I purchased my Callaway RAZR X tour irons, I played the R7 irons for 3 years. They were amazing clubs. The sweet spot was huge and the face was a little over-sized which made looking over the ball very comfortable. Also the sole of the clubs were wide and a little curved which helped getting the clubs...
I guess my advice to you is to go to a golf shop and hit as many irons as you can into a simulator. I really wouldn't buy anything before you hit them because it might be a huge waste of money. I'm guessing with a mid handicapper you could look into a slightly oversized iron that's very forgiving, but again you could hit a blade really well. It's really an unknown until you hit them. Once you've narrowed it down to a specific iron that you like, then it's time to hunt...
I have yet to try out the Win Dry Tac grips, but I do play the Golf Pride Tour Wrap 2G (white) grips, which are very tacky, and I love them. If the tackiness/feel of the Win Dry Tac grips are comparable to the GP Tour Wrap grips, they must be amazing.
Nice! I actually just got an R9 3 wood from Global Golf last week, and I have nothing but good things to say about the company. It came very quickly, it said it was in "excellent" condition but didn't have a ball mark on it at all, and I got it for a great price! Congrats! Just don't let the buying new clubs bug hit you like it hit me... and my bank account.
