Regripping - Build up tape question

7 posts in this topic

I was fitted a few years ago for a standard grip with 3 layers of tape, and the Lamkin website suggests the same based on my hand measurements.

I am regripping my clubs myself for the first time so forgive me if my questions are a bit stupid.  I am very happy about the fitting process and am confident that I can do it without problems.  But I am a bit confused about the 3 layers.

I presume when they say 3 layers of tape they mean 3 layers of a certain thickness of tape.  Is it ok to use 2 layers of masking tape and then 1 layer of double sided tape to make up the 3 layers?  Would masking tape be thick enough to count as 1 layer?  Or would 2 layers of masking tape equate to 1 of the 3 layers?

Hope that makes sense to everyone!!

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

3 layers would be 3 layers of masking tape plus the 2 sided tape (usually a given) or you could get away with 3 layers of 2 sided tape total.

Masking tape adds about .01 (.005 thick) and 2 sided tape adds about .015 (.0075 thick). Remember that you double the thickness because it affects diameter because the tape is on both sides of any measuring point.

"3 layers of 2 sided tape total", is the way my fitter told me to do it.

The math works out the same for this example. A lot of people don't use the 2 sided tape for build up because it is more expensive than regular masking tape.

What's the best way to split the difference between a standard grip and a midsize grip?
