I bought a new driver a month or so ago and changed the grip in the shop to a Winn DriTac midsize. I rather like the grip, but also looking at other alternatives as I plan on regripping my other clubs as well and have heard of the wear issues with Winn, plus I like the idea of the air installation and adjustability.
I play a combination of Ping G25 irons and Adams Hybrids. The Pings I was fitted for last year and they have the mid-size grips from Ping on them, while the hybrids are older (except one of them) and have standard grips.
I actually have smaller hands, but do have issues with nerve damage and arthritis in my hands (and at 38 years old no less) so went to midsize a while back to help with the pain and grip. The midsize from ping are very hard grips and have not helped in that department, but they have helped with my gripping of the club. They are getting a bit slick though and I am looking for more of an all around solution.
After much research, I am very interested in Pure grips and have checked them out to some extent. Looking to get the grip kit with the compressor tool (already have the compressor) for installation. I see that their midsize wraps are rated as medium for impact, while the standard size P2 wrap is soft.
Based on my situation with the arthritis and nerve damage, what are your thoughts on these grips and which way do you think I should go? Has anyone tried both? Has anyone done P2 with a tape buildup, and if so how much tape and how does it effect installation?I feel a little more comfortable with midsize, but can probably swing either.
Any thoughts are very much appreciated.
