The Popular Vote

Posted by Carol Suh on

THE POPULAR VOTE On this historic election day, we're pondering some deep thoughts on how important the popular vote is... for golf grips. Sure, the Top 10 Most Popular Golf Grips may be important to know, and one of these styles might catch your eye. Perhaps everyone at the club plays the same grip, so it's natural for you to think it'll work for you as well. But the game of golf has nothing to do with the popular vote. Finding the right grip for you might mean experimenting with new styles (Wrap, Hybrid, Cord, Soft), different sizes (Undersize, Midsize, or Oversize), and shapes (like Align or Calibrate).Whether or not you...

Why golf grip size does and doesn't matter

Posted by Carol Suh on

  Golf grip sizing can be confusing. Let's start with what the sizing terms actually mean. Standard is usually defined as the diameter of the grip (at the butt end) being around 1". This isn't a hard and fast rule. But most grip manufacturers generally follow this sizing for Standard grips.   All other grip sizes are created relative to Standard. Midsize +1/16" over Standard Oversize/Jumbo +1/8" over Standard Undersize -1/64" or -1/32" under Standard   SETTING UP YOUR SHOT FOR SUCCESS Before diving into what grip sizing you need, it's important to note that many different factors come into play...

Do I need to trim my iron shafts?

Posted by Carol Suh on

  Shaft Trimming: A Tale of 2 Shafts Iron shafts come in either uncut lengths (usually 41" or 42"), OR discrete lengths. Both types require some amount of trimming.   Uncut iron shafts usually mean the shaft is a parallel tip (0.370") shafts. One of the reasons parallel tip shafts exist is so that club-builders can keep minimal stock on hand. Instead of stocking individual shafts for every club, the same shaft can be tip trimmed to fit any iron club. In additional to trimming the tip, you'll then need to trim the butt end, to achieve the final desired club length.   ...

Can new golf grips make a difference?

Posted by Carol Suh on

  You can probably guess, being that we sell grips and have helped over a million golfers around the world find the right grip for their game, our answer to this question is a resounding "YES!" (no surprise there).    But there's a longer answer with a lot more to it.   Golf grips are the only part of the golf club that you touch. This is where the transfer of energy begins, and having a new grip means a higher percentage of energy from your swing will make it down the shaft through the head and to the ball. It's physics, really. ...
