I am in the process of ordering new grips for my clubs.

Please could someone more technical tell me which sizes I need to get them all to play the same width?

I have looked on the net and cant find the details.

Ping G15 Aldila Serrano shaft
MP57 3 - pw Dynamic gold r300
Titleist vokey 52, 56, 60 standard wedge flex

Thank you

Re: Grip size question

Ok so I have found out that the Exsar shafts are .600 (std)

One question - On the Dynamic Gold website it says grip size is .580 for taper tips and .600 for parallel tip.

Sorry for being dumb but whats the difference please?

Re: Grip size question

Taper tips have a tip size of .355, parallel tips have a tip size of .370. Your Mizunos use taper tips.

Re: Grip size question

You don't have to worry about the shaft tip size when changing grips. Standard Grips have .600 diameter. The .580 diameter will give you extra thickness, between standard and midsize grips.

I changed grips more than ten times already....

On the contrary, a .580 grip on a .600 butt size shaft will make it slightly thicker. A .580 grip on a .580 butt size shaft shaft will make a standard grip.

.580 butt size is not always for Senior and Ladies shaft. Any shaft from Wood to Iron can have a .580 butt size.

I changed grip like more than 10 times already.... said it twice already
can someone clear this up for me, isnt .600 bigger than .580 diameter???? so if you put a .580 grip on a .600 butt size shaft then it will stretch out the grip more making it thinner,,,, right? why are people saying that it will be slightly thicker???

what??? why is your grip going to be larger than normal. Wont it be .020 too small for a .600 shaft thus stretching out the grip more and making it thinner, Someone comment, im getting ready to regrip my clubs, lol

You would think so, but no. See, the .580 or .600 is the size of the inside of the grip, not the outside. On the outside, the .600 and .580 sizes are the same, but the .580 as more material to make the opening .02 smaller. If you put this grip, with more material, on a club with a larger butt diameter then it will produce a thicker grip.

According to True Temper all "Dynamic Gold R300" shafts are .600 butt diameter:

It doesn't seem to matter if they're taper tip or parallel tip. I looked quickly and didn't see any True Temper products that had .580 for taper tips and .600 parallel tip. Do you have Dynamic Golds or do you have one of their 20 other versions - SL, HL, Lite, blah blah blah?

If you put a bigger shaft in a smaller grip, the shaft isn't going to give so it pushes the material out and thus makes it thicker. The only real way to "stretch" a grip is to pull it farther down on the shaft. A .580 grip that you don't stretch goes to the same point on a shaft as a .600 shaft... more material, thicker grip.

Re: Grip size question

ahh ic ok. I still find the grip to be a bit harsh on the hands when .580 grip is put on a bigger shaft. The rubber isnt as squishy.

Dynamic Gold R300 - no letters afterwards

I am beginning to think they might not be standard mizuno shafts because I measured them with calipers and they are just over .6 not like the .58 mizuno state on their website.
Maybe an aftermarket switch or when the clubs were built

Says .600. Isn't that the end of the discussion?

Re: Grip size question

I use .580 on all my clubs as they would set up a hair larger on the .600 shafts and IMO are the standard for a lot of clubmakers and players.
