Shaft butt diameter on my clubs?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I've been searching around, but haven't come across anything yet.

I'm going to regrip my irons, they are .600, but I don't know about the rest. Anyone know where to find it, or is it possible to measure? Preferably without removing the old grip.

Mizuno MX-700 23º
Mizuno MX-700 15º
Titleist Vokey SM 52.08, 58.12
Titleist 906F4 18,5º
Cobra Speed LD F 10,5º

Re: Shaft butt diameter on my clubs?

wouldn't it be at the end of the club?



What grips do you have?
My tour velvets show it.
most are .600 anyway.

The club isn't the issue as much as the shaft. Figure out what shafts are in each club and then look them up on the company's website. You can also go to golfworks.com, they sell just about every shaft out there and usually list the specs for each.

Re: Shaft butt diameter on my clubs?

Didn't think to look there. Are the stock grips telling about the shaft diameter?

Wedges: .580 grip. Haven't found the shaft diameter. True Temper Dynamic Gold
5 wood: .580 grip. Haven't found the shaft diameter. Aldila VS Proto Fairway 80-S. I think it is .625
3 wood: Exsar FS4 .606 shaft
Hybrid: Exsar HS4. .624 shaft
Driver: .600 grip. Haven't found the shaft diameter. Graphite Design Tour AD YS, 62 grams.

I'd like to have somewhat the same feeling on all clubs, is that a problem with some .580 and some .600? I've never changed grips before, so they are all stock.
I do like the feeling on my irons (Project X .600 shafts) better than the wedges (.580 shafts). I've ordered 13 .600 grips. Will they all feel somewhat the same if I put a layer of tape on the .580 shafts? I'm getting the Pure grips that don't need double sided tape, so I'll remove any old tape. To get the same feel, I guess I need a layer of tape on the irons, and perhaps two layers on the wedges and other .580 shafts.

Guess I'll have to experiment when I get them.

I'll check the shafts.

Re: Shaft butt diameter on my clubs?

I could be wrong, but I will make the following statement based on what I have read and experienced:

The butt diameter of the shaft and the size of the grip won't matter too much if you want it to be a standard grip. If a grip is .580 or .600, if it is a standard grip, the installed size will be standard, regardless of the butt size being .580 or .600. The butt size won't drastically increase or decrease the size of the grip.

I change grips every year and only get the standard size. I know a few clubs have a different butt size, but when they get on the clubs I can't tell the difference. There might be a difference of .02, or .03, or something, but I sure can't tell. I have one club that has a .625 butt and it feels a little different, but the size feels the same.

Re: Shaft butt diameter on my clubs?

Yeah, I suppose there won't be too big a difference, if so, I can use some tape here and there. All I know is that the grips on my irons are larger and fits me better than the rest of my clubs. Perhaps the grips are just larger, I think I've read somewhere that Mizuno made them slightly larger.

I've also been reading that if you install .580 grips on .600 shafts, you get a thicker feel, while .600 on .600 while feel thinner. If that is the case, I'd need .580 afterall to get a slightly thicker feel. I'll see how it works out when I get the grips, can always put on some tape if needed. Thanks for the help.

You can purchase a measuring tool from Golfworks.com called "Universal Grip Gauge" 

This gauge will measure shaft butt size and grip size on both men’s and ladies’ clubs, including undersized, standard and oversized. Easily measures right- and left-hand grip size. Made of heavy aluminum with markings etched on a Black background. Full instructions included    http://www.golfworks.com/product.asp_Q_pn_E_MAGG_A_cn_E_1894

 

Save the work of trying to find this information from the internet.  Lots of clubs not made anymore are hard to find specs for.

Good luck and I hope this helps.

If a grip is .580 or .600, if it is a standard grip, the installed size will be standard, regardless of the butt size being .580 or .600. The butt size won't drastically increase or decrease the size of the grip.  A .580 grip on a .600 butt shaft is 1/64 oversized equal to a midsize gripIn this case, you should have the .580 grip stretched upon installation by 1/2 inch.   A .580 on a .620 butt shaft is 1/32 oversized equal to a jumbo style grip.
