Grip question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone

I bought some standard size grips cause I got a heck of a good deal on them, but I need something that is closer to a midsized grip. Is it ok to put 4-5 wraps of tape under a standard sized grip?? Will it mess the grip anyway?? Make them wear faster??
Thx for your help

Yes 4-5 wraps should be no problem. Pros do it all the time. I think Bubba Watson has something like 7 wraps.

Adding 3-4 layers of build up tape and then using the grip tape will approximate a midsize grip in diameter.  But it's a little different feel than standard midsized grips, depending on the manufacturer.  For example Lamkins tend to be less tapered than GP's in my opinion.  Definitely can add the extra wraps but I'd suggest trying it first before going ahead and installing all of them right away.

Ok I'll try it on a few first. Thank you
