Using the same grip throughout your set.

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to change my grips and am curious about peoples opinions on uniformity in their set. I currently have 7 different grips in my bag, mainly because I kept the OEM grips on each club after purchase. I really dislike the grips on my clubs, woods in particular, and am trying to decide whether or not to re-grip the whole set with one style or to mix it up (e.g. firm corded grips for irons, tacky grips for wedges, nonslip grips for woods) Any opinions?

Up until this season I've had GolfPride Tour Velvet on all of my clubs.  I've replaced most of my clubs since late last season and now I've got assorted OEM grips on everything.  That's going to change soon, I'm just trying to figure out if I'm go back to the Tour Velvet or maybe switch to the new decade multi compound.  I might get a couple done with the multi compound and make a decision then.

Everyone of my clubs has the same grip (except putter), I like them all to feel the same in my hand.  But like everything else it's a personal preference.

I currently have GP Tour Velvets on my irons and wedges, and then various OEM grips on the woods.  I really like the Tour Velvets, but when it comes time to re-grip my clubs at some point this season, I am going to go a local golf store and check out the various brands and styles (they have a bunch on display, and also some on various irons to try).

My suggestion is to do the same, and try out a few different kinds to see what you like the best (I also like PURE grips).

I may put one kind on my woods and long irons (for better vibration control), and then another for the short irons through wedges (for softer feel and response).  Not sure yet, but this is how I am leaning at the moment.

I also may try different color schemes on my clubs for the woods, long irons, and short irons / wedges (just to try something a bit different).

I like the rubbery grips that usually come with clubs. However they do tend to wear out quickly. When I buy a club I don't immediately regrip it but as soon as the stock grip starts showing wear I replace it.

I like having the same grip on my Irons and wedges I don't really care about my woods and Putter.

Just do whatever you think is best.  I don't think it really matters.  A few years ago I was wanting to try out different grips so over a season I think I had about 7 different models on my clubs.  Didn't make a bit of difference.  I am to the point where I have a few favorites now, so it is usually only two styles for me.  I found a great grip that I like that my Dad had on his clubs but it was discontinued.  I bought as many as I could find and just use them on my woods since they are very soft and tacky.

The great thing about grips is that they aren't all that expensive so you can try different things and not be too committed to them.  Give your idea a try for a season and see what you think.  If you don't like it, they are easy to change.

I am partial to the GP Tour Velvets, and have them on everything except the putter (Tiger Shark jumbo).  I like the way the feel, and like all the clubs to feel the same.  No wraps on everything except the SW and LW, which have 3 wraps as I like a little fatter grip on the wedges.

I agree with it is ideal for every club to have the same tactile feel.....and wouldnt a star sidewinder feel good in rainy, sunny and cold weather ( although I am using Gripmaster leathers on mine!!!)

I've started to regrip my set with the GP new decade half-cords.  I love the feel of them.

I use two different grips.  Golf Pride VDR midsize on my irons and wedges, and Winn Lite midsize on my hybrid, 3-wood, and driver.  The Winn Lite is because I run these clubs a little shorter then normal (44.5" driver, 42.5" 3-wood, and 40" hybrid) so the lite grips help keep the swingweights in the normal range.  Just switched to these last weekend, first time using midsize grips, but so far I'm very happy with them.  I have big hands, XL gloves, and probably should have gone to midsize grips long ago.

same grips on driver - pitching wedge which are new decade multicompounds.

on my gap, sand and lob wedge i use lamkin midsize grips.  i like the larger feel on those because i so often choke down on them.

    • @Yff Theos Cp cf hit v swing  etc... None of these antiquated and mistaken false dichotomies have much relevance.   Saying a thing like a cp swing has low rate of closure and cf has high really means little.  Also you mention that you know how effective teaching either would be based on player type?  Sounds fishy to me. Correlating roc to skill at ballstriking is highly questionable. Instagram and you tube are not teachers.  IMO if you really want to get somewhere it takes years of experience.  IMO you sound like a person that absolutely correlates kinematics and skill.  Modern research is beginning to find that this is not the case as previously thought. online we all love data and some folks get all into the techy discussions about details.   Ultimately though information is just that.  The player has to execute the shot and that doesn't happen by analyzing the number three accumulator and also it's not a deal where you simply choose how to swing based on the quality of information you know.  Everyone has strengths and weaknesses and there are variations in athletic tendencies.   Mac was a great athlete and totally obsessed with golf.  Maybe it's easy for you to think well I like his mechanics so I will swing like that and teach what he did. But...  
    • @Golfingdad, as you know, he said "2-3 rotations." And the pixel math was on an angle that would make it as short as possible. And when you're talking about 10.56" vs. at least 18", that's a significant margin. Even 15.8 vs. 18" is a non-negligible percentage. But since you brought it up (while I happened to be in front of the TV): 1472.08 ball to hole, 263.62 width of the hole.
      263.62 / 4.25 = 62.02823529 pixels/inch.
      1472.08 pixels / 62.02823529 px/in = 23.73241788 inches. Almost exactly two feet.
    • That's a shame... so much talent. I hope she makes the change.
    • I used a launch monitor today and recorded ten swings from 5 clubs. These were all full swings at about 80%-90% effort. Everything but the driver was without a tee. The employee suggested I discard the duffs, but I decided to keep them. They lowered my averages but I thought they were a good "snapshot" of how I hit. No real surprises on distances or side angles (other than the pull hooks with my 5w), but the numbers on the driver may have provided something to work towards.  I have to do a better job of controlling my low point. Currently, I seem to be bottoming out too close to the ball. I'll have to review "How to hit the driver further" thread. 7i   5w   5i   Driver   4i
