Regripping clubs with a .650 shaft?

11 posts in this topic

Hi there... I have a couple Cleveland Mashie hybrids and just purchased a used Cleveland Classic 290 driver off eBay.

These clubs have shafts with a .650 butt end.  Anyone know of any good sources for replacement grips that will fit?

I've been told that .600 core grips like Sharpro or Golf Pride New Decade Multicompound will just not fit.  True?

Thanks,

Bob in St. Paul MN

Very hard to find, but you need a Lamkin. I found one "sold" on ebay.

Here is a link for the grip for the .650 butt- click on view technical spes: http://www.lamkingrips.com/?r=845-Cleveland-Wedge-Iron

Also this link gives a phone number to call if you can't find them. I am sure Lamkin will ship them to you.

I regripped a Cleveland FL 3W (which I was told was too large to regrip with standard grips) recently with a Lamkin Oversize, which is alot thicker grip & not as flexible - thus tougher to put on than a standard grip ... it's not that tough, have to just use plenty of solvent & just muscle it on.      If it gets stuck, having an air compressor at the ready will ensure it goes on...

Just got off the phone with Lamkin - they have discontinued their .650 core Cleveland replacement grips and have no more in stock.

Hmm...

Contact Cleveland customer support. Usually an OEM would ship this out free.

Otherwise save yourself a lot of aggravation and put a new shaft in the driver.

Cleveland Customer Support's response when I contacted them last week:

" The original grip was a Lamkin grip (part # 33856) has a .650 butt size.  Any grip that has a .650 butt size will fit on this club.  You can order the part # from your local authorized Cleveland retailer or you can try and see if Lamkin has any replacement grips to sell."

Latest response from Cleveland, just now:

" Call your authorized Cleveland retailer and order part # 33856.  Big box stores like Golfsmith and Dick’s will not be able to order the grips, but other accounts in your area should be able to assist you with your purchase."

Please already - any club tech worth his salt could get whatever grip you want on.    If it's too tight, just heat up the grip so it's softer.

And there's always the option of a traditional wrap, possibly even leather. Should fit any size.

    • New GolfNow layout is Awful
      Sounds like we just have a different barometer for what "bad" is. This particular case isn't about "adapting" to the new site, the controls are largely the same. The problem is they blew everything up so people can see it on their phones which dilutes the quantity of information you get get to see on your PC. Also they removed useful features like the regions to again make more space for mobile users.

      Yes, it is extremely popular among Asians of every kind here because it's a rich man's sport in Asia. Many Asians (Korean, Japanese, and large growing Chinese/Taiwanese and many other Southeast Asians) come here and find that Golf is within reach of their "class" so they sign up their kids to play. I'd say that my wife's friend is in that category, and she also convinced us to play as well. So, here I am.
    • Putting Yips
      I completely changed my own putting stroke this year.... twice. Last year I had a terrible case of the yips and was two and three putting a lot of greens - some of the two putts were on putts that were 3-4 footers resulting from chip ons. I averaged 37.8 putts per round. My back hurts when I bend over practicing putting for any length of time. I tried to fix it, but gave up after a while, decided that I needed to hit more GIRs and get closer to the pin. My putting would always be mediocre. So at Xmas I bought a long putter .... cheap $60... no one wants them anymore. I tried side-saddle and practiced in my living room. I took it to the green yesterday and I didn't like it. I changed to the "shoulder-connected method" except with my right arm fully extended and right index finger along the shaft of the putter. I hold the putter gripped over the top like they would when anchoring it to the chest. Now I just rock my shoulders and arm as a unit. Having the right arm fully extended takes my right wrist completely out of the equation and that is what was causing my putting problem. Now, neither my forearm nor the putter head is touching my body. I am making a legal stroke at the ball.  After about 15 minutes work, I was lag putting to within gimme range of the holes on the practice green. When I'd miss the mark, the four footer would still drop. Now this is with a completely new stroke, and not an anchored stroke either. I'm standing fairly upright too so it's easy on my back and I can practice for about 30 minutes every time I go to the range without dreading it. While this might not cure my scoring woes this year, if I look at last years Game Golf analysis, I could save about 3 strokes a round by going from 37.8 putts per round to 34.8.

      Facebook updates all the time for performance reasons. Read their release notes.  But never judge good usability by Facebook as they are one of the absolute worst sites out there.   Honestly?  There isn't.  Some people are still stuck in old web menus but usability has only risen in the last decade.  Are there bad sites?  Sure.  But most sites are far and away better they anytime in the past.  You just have to adapt to them.  This isn't a knock on you its how society works.  I am a user experience designer and study this a lot.   Once a person gets used to changes, going back to the old version would be impossible     
    • "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge (February 2016)
      Got to the range to drop off clubs for my daughters high school coed golf team tryouts. I sure hope she can get on the team. She's about a 15HC from the men's tees, it's going to be tough. Cross fingers and Practiced my downswing transition on grass and hit much better shots on the grass range after the first few shots. I hit too thin on the course, but was able to get some serious height on the grass range. Going to practice some more on the grass range and use golf club delivery to my daughter as an excuse to spend the extra money. Also, I feel like I can really go after the ball on grass because a fat shot is not as penal on the body as on a mat.
