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.
