Top 3 Questions & Answers About Golf Grips
// WILL THIS GRIP FIT MY SHAFT?
There's only 1 requirement you need to know, when it comes to fitting a grip onto a shaft. A grip will fit onto a shaft if the CORE size of the grip is equivalent* to the butt diameter of the shaft. Most shafts are around 0.600" in diameter, with the exception of junior shaft (smaller, around 0.500" to 0.540") or bubble shafts (can go up to 0.865"). Most grips come in 0.600" or 0.580" core sizes. Keep in mind, Core size has no relation to the OUTER diameter of a grip. > read more: 6 things you need to know about golf grips

// WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 58 AND 60 GRIPS?
58 and 60 refer to the core size (or INSIDE diameter) measurement. A 58 core grip means the inside diameter is 0.580", where a 60 core grip has an inside diameter of 0.600". Additionally, the 58 core grip is also slightly THICKER, which means once you install it, the outer diameter of the grip will then be larger than if you installed a 60 core grip. This is counterintuitive we realize. Important takeaway is that the 58 grip will result in larger grip once installed. > read: golf grip core size
