I recently bought a new set of Ben Hogan player combo set of irons, 4-7 PTX Pro and 8-PW Icons. Of course they came with new grips. I need to replace the grips on my 3 woods and 3 wedges that will stay in the bag. Should I go ahead and do all 13 clubs with the same grip for consistency or find a similar style grip for the 6 new ones. I have always preferred the Golf Pride tour wrap but the irons are not a wrap.

Welcome to TST.

I think it is all personal choice.  My driver is a different grip but other clubs are the same.  Not really be design, just how it is.  Last time my clubs need to be redone the driver was fine so I left it alone.

Go all 13. If you think there is any chance it will bother you, do it. 

Agreed

I used to have different grips for the clubs bought separately, but recently had all regripped the same and I like it. Largely personal preference, but I do like the consistency/uniformity now

I play grips that are different on many clubs. Right now… let's see…

  • My putter, obviously. 🙂
  • Driver has the original grip it came with. It's a New Decade ALIGN one.
  • My 3W has a Tour Wrap I think.
  • My hybrid has a Lamkin.
  • My irons have Pure Pro.
  • My wedges have PURE DTX.

The CLUBS themselves are different, so why would I care if the grips are?

I changed all my grips, except the putter, because I wanted all mid-size grips. I did the entire set, driver through SW. As stated above it is a personal choice, how do they feel for you? I know some guys don't really care and some do. Changing my grips gave me the feeling that I had an entire new set of clubs, worked for me.

I guess my answer to your question would be to change all your grips.

I have mainly used MCC +4's in the past, but recently got new irons the end of last year and had the Pure DTX grips put on them.  The few rounds I played it bothered me a little having different grips, mainly because my other grips were old and ready to be changed, but getting the rest replaced with Pure DTX next week.

I've cut brand new grips off clubs to put used PURE grips on.

Me too. I've also ordered custom clubs and asked to have the grips shipped loose. That way when the club arrives I can put a Pure DTX Midsize Grip on their from jump street.

I do this all the time. It annoys the f*ck out of me to peel off grip tape though.

I requested grip off with the last two Edel wedges I ordered, but they came with grips installed 🤬. My new set of irons should be arriving soon, and I also asked the fitter to order with grips off. Hopefully Srixon is more attentive to stuff like that. I've got some Pure Combos to try out with them.

I'll be jazzed to hear about how you like the Pure Combos. To mean that seems like a great idea. I hope they bring them out in Midsized.

I have all different grips on various clubs.

Sometimes, it is just to get the right swing weight or feel.  On my 3 wood, I want to be able to hit a high draw and it has a thinner grip.  On my short wedges, I can't stand a taper whereas on my irons up to GW, the grips are all tapered.

I don’t mind different grips, but within each of these club types, the grips must match:

  • Fairway woods
  • hybrids
  • irons

The different grip types in these categories often gives me a semi-conscious tactile reminder of the slightly different swings for the club types, if that makes sense.

    • Shot 79 today, with 14 nGIR/GIR, 32 putts, and 1 penalty stroke. Low event round, nothing awful, and nothing exceptional. Changes from my last lesson basically took my bad hook misses out of play, which really helped. I felt confident that I could aim and know that if I missed, it would be a playable right miss. I'm still working up to full speed with the change, so hit a little shorter than normal (about 1 club loss of distance) today, but my home course is narrow and position/accuracy are more important than length on most holes. The penalty stroke came on the one hole where a right miss is penal, and my tee shot, which was headed a bit right, took a hard first bounce further right, and rolled into a creek. Made 4 up/down from nGIR, which was also helpful in scoring, including a nice one on the 18th hole, where I had about a 20 foot putt for par to break 80, and nailed it.
    • I’ve almost completed the main game of Hollow Knight. An incredible game that I knew nothing about before playing. It’s a Metroidvania like game and quite extensive. It feels like the Soulsborne of platformers. Somewhat in the vein of the Ori games, but more extensive and challenging. It’s not as difficult as games like Wings og Vi, Boshy and Roah, but takes some precise controlling. You can become a bit OP by collecting and upgrading, which makes it more manageable, not too different from Soulsborne.
    • Day 517: Played 18 today with new concepts/feels from my lesson to address my bad hook misses. Didn’t feel like I was playing particularly great, but scored well (79), and zero hooks. Shots that I didn’t control the club face well were straight fades or slightly pushed fades, all playable. Driver wasn’t good today but only hit it on three holes.
    • Sugar Hill Golf Club - Front Nine 49 Stupid mistakes cost me on three holes. I went bogey, triple (8 on a par 5), bogey, double, bogey, bogey, double, bogey, par.  On both doubles, I couldn't find my ball and had to take a drop.  On the first one, I never heard it hit any trees or anything, but I lost it into the setting sun.  I have no doubt that it was somewhere in the deep Bermuda rough along the right side of the fairway, but I never found it.  The second was well struck (out of the rough because of a topped 3 hybrid) and based on my aim, it should have been okay, but it was nowhere to be found.  The par-five ninth was a series of five almost perfect shots on a difficult, sloping double dogleg hole.
    • Thank you I appreciate that. What made the birdies so nice that all my shots in both of them were great shots. One thing a person of my handicap has a hard time doing is being consistent. When I I'm consistent, even only through one hole or two, it feels great. I shot an 80 on the course which was also very good for my level, and this was after shooting 102 just days before , LOL.
