How many wraps of tape = midsize grip?

Recommended Posts

I use golf pride tour velvet midsize grips now. I am going to order a new club. They do not offer a midsize grip. They have options up to +7 wraps of tape. If the width is not perfect to a midsize grip, that's ok. I just want to be in the range of a midsize grip.

Thanks guys,

Zack

Zack, You might want to check a different store. I just had some midsize tour velvets installed on my wedges over the weekend.
It was done at Golfsmith if that helps.

Thanks for the replies. Here's a little more detail. I am ordering a club from callaways site. They offer different grips that you can get put on the club. They offer the golf pride multi compound which I want. You can only get it in the standard size and then add wraps to your liking. There is no extra charge for this grip. That is why I want to get it from their site. If I had to pay extra for this grip I would just buy a midsize one and get it installed somewhere else.

Hope this adds a little more info to my situation.

Thanks,

Zack

For what it's worth...I double wrap my standard grips so they are a tad larger than standard. Perfect fit for me, however, it sounds like you play over-oversized

Have 'em put seven wraps on just to mess with the guy that has to install the grip.

Ha ha ha!

Well I've gotten 2,3,4 as an answer. I think I will go with three. I just like the grips to be bigger than standard. If it's to big or small I can just take it in and get it redone. Thanks for the replies guys!! Zack

Why?

And for the OP: I've heard 4 or 5. I have 3 under my standard grips and they are just a shade smaller than midsize.

3 wraps is midsized. Local pro told me so and showed me how they compared. I had my dad's clubs regripped to midsize with standard size grips.

Thanks tws1098.

I ended up just doing two wraps. Midsize might be a smidge to big, so I am looking forward to how two wraps will feel!

Thanks tws1098.

No problem, it was recommended that I go with 2 wraps, so that will be what I go with when mine need changed. Good luck.

midsize is normally 4 wraps. i like my grips to be midsize at the butt end, so i normally do 4rows in my top hand and 3 rows in the bottom hand. i find it gives a similar taper to the normal midsize grips.

Why?

Why dont I use tape? You dont need it. Ever. On any club. Ever. Really. Ive regripped my clubs with no tape and taken them to the range 20 minutes later and theyve never moved or anything. And I HATE that little ridge you get on the bottom if you dont do the tapejob cleanly.

When it comes time to regrip the tape just makes it more of a PITA.
