I just purchased the new TaylorMade Speedblade irons today and was thinking about replacing the grips. What are the things I should consider for buying new grips? What are ones that people recommend? I had the Winn Grip Dri-Tac Lite midsize on my last set of irons but read that it might not allow the correct rotation of my wrists during the swing.

Any suggestions on this?

Thanks!

Depends on your preference. I like Golf Pride although they are pricey. My next favorite is Lamkin. I don't care for Winn because they are too soft. Again, it's preference. Other than size, I'm not sure the brand you choose actually affects anything. Certain materials like cord vs velvet give a different feel and response to the player, but that's it. The size will determine rotation for the most part. I have happy wrists and long fingers, so I use midsize grips. That helps me a lot.

My favorite grips are the Golf Pride Multicompound ones (the cord is where you wear a glove, which means it doesn't cut into your hands if they're sensitive) as they give a good grip even when wet and the rubber at the bottom half is nice and soft. I also will second that the Lamkin grips are nice too. I like the R.E.L. 3Gen grips they have, they're comfortable to hold. It's just that I prefer the golf pride ones myself.

    • Yes, eventually you learn when to do it in order not to slow down play and still get it done without feeling hurried. I walk fast am am usually the first to the green many times, so that helps too. And by pacing, I simply walk to the pin and multiply by 3 ft/pace. Just in case anyone thinks otherwise. 
    • I did, too, but now they’re apparently trying to walk it back and scrambling to save face.   Deservedly so. Wilson should have gotten one, too, and suspended.   Just to play a little devil’s advocate, could their line of thinking be to hire these types of guys because they “understand” how to be rough without crossing the line? Or that they understand the difference between being physical and having intent to injure? Not saying I agree with it or believe it, but I’m just trying to see it from a different perspective.
    • I estimate first putt length. When I first took AimPoint, we practiced estimating distance because it was part of the mid-read technique. It’s pretty easy once you break the putt into sections visually.
