Switching to Jumbo grips

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Okay I'm currently 48 years old and have worked construction trades the past 25+ years and during the past year and a half have put in more time playing/practicing than the previous 10 years I would say. After just about every round or practice session I have had some sort of pain in either my elbow, wrist, or fingers, I use those really soft Winn grips in standard but the pain still happens, I checked out the midsize grip but it only gives 1/32 over the standard versus the jumbo at 1/8 over standard. I did install 3 of these grips on my driver, 7 iron, and gwedge, and really don't notice any change in ball flight it's been a week now, I have what I feel are "active" hands already and have to stave off a hook as my worst shot so I think this may help some but better swing method will be the real cure ultimately. Anybody else use this size grip and what were your findings? My hands are a bit larger than average but more thick than anything else.

I too worked construction for many, many years. At 65 my hands aren't as flexible as they use to be. Depending on the size of your hands, mine are 8 1/2" from my thumb tip to my pinky, and I chose the mid-sized winn dritac grips for my driver and 3 wood. 

 

The larger size gives me more control as I don't have to squeeze the grip, the soft feel also helps me in that I feel my hands sorta mold into the grip, so yeah, the larger size works better for me compared to the standard size grip. I don't think I'm going back to the Winn grips though, as some guys said they wear out much faster than other grips.

 

I would go to a pro shop and try out different sizes, see what feels best to you.

Mine were a little over 9" but my fingers are not very long I have large thick palms. I already bought the grips and figured I'll put them on after the game today once I get a little feedback.

The jumbo grips maybe just the ticket for you then..
