So about three years ago during a club fitting the Pro changed my grips from standard to Medium with one layer of tape. The effects were an immediate improvement in dispersion across my clubs. For fun I had one wedge that I don't use much regripped with a large grip a little later. Not a fan of the feel of the large grip.

I found the following data interesting and is making me think about playing with slightly increasing my medium grip, by adding tape. I am coming due for my annual re-grip. Anyone else played with grip size?

I went from std to oversize (Winn) and then back to midsize (blue tips). Liked the oversize for awhile but you sacrifice some feel. The mid size blue tips were the best of both worlds for me.

Having the right sized grip makes things much easier. I use a Mid-size with 2 wraps under the left and 4 under the right. I prefer the logs down on a MCC grip.

It makes a big difference in comfort and tension in my hands as well as fatigue in the hands over the round. Having the right grip I find that I am able to keep a light grip pressure.

After messing with lots of different grips and amounts of tape, I've discovered that MCC +4 midsize are the perfect fit for me. I hope they keep that design around for a long time.

Funny thing, I had a lesson today with a new instructor and one of the first things he mentioned is that I had perfect sized grips for me. He stated that most people that come to him have grips that aren't even close to correct. So I have that going for me at least lol.

I use midsize grips for my irons and wedges and oversized for my driver and hybrids. Not sure if that's normal but it feels normal to me!

Why do you like the logo down? Is it a feel difference or a visual difference?

What is the benefit of the oversize grip on your driver?

Bigger swing, bigger grip? Not sure there's any scientific reason behind it, but I guess I like having more club to hold on to for those longer, wider-ranging swings. Just feels right ... I'm sure I could probably get away with those grips for the short irons and wedges too, but it's just how I've gotten used to my clubs. Wouldn't be surprised at all if a place that does fittings told me I was ludicrous!

Same grip (1st generation Golf Pride Tour Wrap...not the inferior 2G version now being sold)...same exact size...on every club in the bag. I want uniformity in feel and performance from driver through SW; adhering to this process provides that. To me, playing with different models and/or sizes of grips within the same set would be akin to pulling a club from a stranger's bag.

Unless of course you're doing it every week you play! But I can definitely see the logic in your analysis. Maybe I'll try it next time I get the sticks re-gripped.
