As I get along in years here I'm having issues with arthritis in my hands. A friend let me swing his driver with the larger grip. While they were more comfortable, I felt they slowed down my swing speed. Maybe it was just me using a different driver.

Anybody make the change and have feedback?

Thanks

I'm a retired carpenter.  I have mildly arthritic hands...they get sore, and swollen, at the drop of a hat.  I use mid-sized grips on everything except my sand wedge and putter...which have jumbo grips on them.  Standard grips feel thin to me and while I can play with them it isn't a pleasant experience.  

As for swing speed:  Back-weighting a club (ceteris paribus) will reduce, not increase, its swing weight.

Grips are like shoes...comfort is paramount.

I just started playing again after an almost 20 year lay off. I replaced the original grips on a set of G25 irons I have with Jumbo Golf Pride grips and I can't believe the difference. Now I have big hands - so does my son. He didn't think the grips would make a difference, but since I figured out how to do it myself I said why not. I'll be giving him the G25s and I'll be adding Jumbo grips to the used G30s I have coming. My grip just feels more comfortable. Before I always struggled to get my grip "Set" if that makes sense before a shot - now - I don't.
