@  HossOnMoss : (20 October 2014 - 01:46 PM) @Quantum: Rome 988 is actually a little smoother feeling and higher launch than DI-95 hybrid without feeling "loose" or being spinny. Rome 888 is going to launch lower and spin less than Speeder 757.

@  BingHogan : (29 September 2014 - 09:40 AM) Just heard on The Golf Channel -- if Phil and a few others are on in 2016 -- a new Red, White and Blue Skirt will designed for the ladies/guys!
@  BingHogan : (29 September 2014 - 09:37 AM) I don't know why but I am just pissed about this! If you are going to have an AMERICAN FLAG as big as a battleship on - you best be bringing' it!
@  Qwagmire : (29 September 2014 - 09:29 AM) Best line I read about the Ryder Cup: Mickelson: What has been in common with all of our Ryder Cup losses recently? Scribe: Mickelson was on the team. Phil broke the code, threw everyone under the bus

@  BingHogan : (08 September 2014 - 06:16 PM) Sleeves that have been handed out. Looks like more spin probably due to lower spinning drivers coming out.
@  TWshoot67 : (08 September 2014 - 01:56 PM) Are we talking the New Titleist sleeves that have been sent out?
@  TWshoot67 : (08 September 2014 - 01:55 PM) @BingHogan is this ball from a New Company or just a new Proto for next years possible selections?

@  youngwaldo : (28 August 2014 - 09:40 AM) Butch is slowing down so taking Tiger will not happen.
@  HossOnMoss : (28 August 2014 - 09:16 AM) I've heard the Grant Waite rumors as well, but that would be so similar to how Foley teaches. That's not to say that Grant couldn't teach him better even with a similar model or style.
@  HossOnMoss : (28 August 2014 - 09:15 AM) Butch already said no and Tiger isn't going to take the left overs. I could see Claude III as an outside possibility otherwise, but I doubt it because of that.
@  BingHogan : (28 August 2014 - 08:57 AM) Gotta be one of the Harmon's. Or all of them. It's not the coach...
@  J13 : (28 August 2014 - 06:04 AM) I'm taking myself out of consideration to be tigers next coach lol
@  ballen : (28 August 2014 - 04:56 AM) I hear Grant Waite will be Tigers next.......

@  BingHogan : (27 August 2014 - 09:37 PM) Tiger maybe running out of options. Maybe Leadbetter :rolleyes:
@  HossOnMoss : (27 August 2014 - 09:28 AM) Tiger holds interviews for the position. Breed walks up and says, "Come on, Tiger! LET'S DO THIS!!!!" Tiger and I are thinking the same thing....BRUTAL. Haha
@  TWshoot67 : (26 August 2014 - 07:54 PM) Heck Tiger doesn't need to be with Michael Breed he's already a weekly discussion about the golf swing even when he's not playing on the Golf Channel....

I decided today that I'm going to give mid size grips a try. I already have a stock of reg grips,,,

Does any one know how many layers of tape to equal a mid grip (tour velvet or tv cord)? And is there any disadvantage building them up with tape?

Also, does anyone know how much that amount of tape will change the swing weight by?

Thanks guys!

I guess another good question would be what tape would you use to build it up, just two sided or masking tape, or something else? I really appreciate any help. thanks guys

Tape weight is negligible even if you put a couple of layers on. You should not experience a swing weight change. You find your ideal size by experimentation, or you can watch a club pro do some grips.

Double sided tape is easier to use as all I do is add kerosene to slip the grips on. It's a lot cleaner, or easier to clean than a mix of contact cement and kerosene.

- oversized is plus 6 wraps build up tape

One strip of double sided tape will weigh 2g. So, you will counter balance the club and lose a full swingweight point for every 2 layers (4g) that you add. With him building up to midsize, he is definitely going to notice a difference in the swingweight since it is going to drop by 1.5 to 2 points most likely.

That chart that Qwagmire posted from Golfworks is a good reference. As it states on the top, a layer of masking tape equals 0.10". If you decide to use double sided tape for the build up layers as well which I generally prefer to do, you will need to account for the extra thickness of double sided tape which is about 0.15".

Thanks for the info guys, that charts great. I ended up just putting 1,2,3, and maybe 4 layers on different clubs to see what I liked the feel of the most. I know its funny but two layers felt good. I didnt realize how easily someone could tell an extra later of tape.


Another question that i was wondering, if i were to have used more tape, whats the best way to swing weight. I saw some sort of weights that went into the hosel on golfsmith site. is that the best way and does it only work with certain clubs, as in do the clubs need to be made to allow for this?

i cant figure out which size to use, and someone just put a white NDMC on a wedge and I love it. But at $9 a pop it would drive me crazy to put one on and it be the wrong size...

You can put them on and if you decide later you want to add some tape you can pll the grip off using a tool from gs or gg.
