Do all your clubs have the same grip?

17 posts in this topic

I just changed out the grips on all my clubs today.  For the first time in probably 20 years I now have the same grip on all my clubs (except the putter).

Just curious, how many of you change out grips on new clubs (a new wedge or fw wood or driver for example) to match whats in the bag already.  Today I cut off 3 brand new grips that have never hit a ball just to get everything to match.

Anyone else try to keep everything matching?

No, I have Ping irons, Cobra driver, woods and hybrid, and SnakeEye wedges. They all have their own grips and it doesn't bother me. Maybe when all the grips need changing I'll consider having the same grip, but I like the Ping name on my irons. I wouldn't consider putting a Ping grips on a Cobra wood. So I guess I'll always have different grips on my clubs.

I had Golf Pride multi-compound on my irons and stock Callaway grips on all the other clubs. I changed to all Callaway grips and the clubs feel much better to me now.

My hybrid and 3-wood both still have the stock grips for some reason (laziness, I guess), and I think the grips on my driver and LW are standard instead of midsize, but everything else is Golf Pride New Decade Multi Compound midsize. When I had my first set of irons, about a year and a half into using them the grip on the five iron twisted so that it was off-centered. I still had the stock grips with the "Orlimar" script on them, and I ended up replacing the five iron's grip with some weird blue Lamkin thing because I didn't have the money to regrip them all. It annoyed me to no end that those things were mismatched.

I replaced my woods and hybrids several months ago. They still have their original grips. They'll be replaced with the same New Decades as the rest of my clubs when they come due, but not before.

I have the stock New Decade multicompound (standard thickness) on my Callaway XFit driver. It just seems to work better, I guess in part because I have it set slightly open, and I get a slight draw when I swing OK.

Ping B60 putter has its standard grip.

On all my other clubs, I've gone to Winn Dri-Tac (soft, midsize). For the wedges, I had two extra wraps of tape put under the bottom hand, so I can grip down without having too thin a feel.

I initially went midsize (soft) on GW and SW, FWs and 4H. The slightly thicker grips stabilized the wedges, and cut down on hook problems with the FWs and H. Overall, grip pressure felt better and more even. So, I add the midsized to my irons for winter regrip.

Basically, the common grips are a performance issue, not for looks.

Keep your irons, 3-9 the same. Wedges can be different. Winn Dri Tac are nice a soft and great for feel around the greens. The grips on my wood and hybrids match my irons but it wont matter if they dont. Although, try to keep the woods the same as one another.

Do a little research on grips before fitting. Depending where you live, wet or dry, can make the difference between holding on for dear life or keeping a good grip if conditions are poor.

Absolutely; first thing I do whenever I get a new club is replace the grip.  I want the same feeling with all my clubs.

I also put my grip of preference on when I buy a new club. I am putting a new driver in play this week and already picked up the grip. I am using the 3 Gen RELs from Lamkin with one extra wrap. I reviewed these for the trap and really like them for gloveless play.

Same here, all Golf Pride Multi Compounds (color scheme I usually match to club head/shaft). It really hurt that I had to go with black and yellow on my irons, due to my own OCD in matching color schemes, since I'm a Browns fan!

I just like having the same grip/feel throughout all of my clubs. The only stock grip that I have is on my putter, but that'll be replaced when I buy a new putter before April.

I use the same grips on all my clubs, putter being the exception. I keep extra grips at home for new purchases. First thing I do is remove the grip and put on a new matching grip.

Re-gripped all my irons with Winn lite blue grips. Only exceptions were my 56* SV Tour and Mizuno 60* and my driver and hybrids as they were relatively new and I need to be frugal (or divorced :-)). I was a little unsure of my grip choice at first as they were way softer than the the golf pride velvets I've always used but after an adjustment period I really like the softer grips. I regret not getting them all done, it was a huge clearance sale, buck a grip plus 1.50 for install per.
