@  ROBOPTI : (28 July 2014 - 10:27 AM) BIG THANK YOU to Callaway Golf for the LDA/KOD head giveaway ... Cuz everyone needs a 6* driver :lol:
@  rfdegen : (28 July 2014 - 09:48 AM) At 55, starting to figure out why PGA Seniors only play 3 days! After two weeks with a lot of golf, my aching body is tired!
@  Callaway_Anthony : (28 July 2014 - 08:50 AM) Congrats Slick and MWP on winning the X2 Hot Pro LD heads. Enjoy!
@  TheMechanic : (28 July 2014 - 07:21 AM) Superfast Long hosel on its way to BSG for some ROGUE Treatment ;-) cant wait!
@  J13 : (28 July 2014 - 05:54 AM) Enjoy the LD heads boys WE EXPECT VIDEO'S of you hitting 6ft high missiles !!!!!
@  slick : (27 July 2014 - 08:54 PM) Wow! incredible!!!! Stoked for the LD head. I'm playing the X2Hot Pro so this will compliment it perfectly!!!!! Thanks again BSG and Callaway for the giveaway. Feels strange actually being one of "the chosen" instead of the other way around!
@  Armyguy13 : (27 July 2014 - 08:50 PM) Dang! Missed the free 5.5deg driver by ONE!! Congrats Slick and MWP!
@  J13 : (27 July 2014 - 07:37 PM) I just realized I'm right 60% of the time everytime
@  TWshoot67 : (27 July 2014 - 01:32 PM) Would love to have the extra cash lying around to buy a set of Yoro MP4's with some Aldila Rip Tours.. yummy!
@  TheMechanic : (27 July 2014 - 10:46 AM) go for yoro craft MP4's they are sick

@  TJR : (25 July 2014 - 10:09 PM) I will have a set of MP-4s someday. Maybe try a MP-4/MP-64 combo?
@  TJR : (25 July 2014 - 10:00 PM) Love my 64s! They're the closest I've found to being a perfect all-around iron (appearance, feel, forgiveness).
@  BingHogan : (25 July 2014 - 05:34 PM) Should read: are great... Duh!
@  BingHogan : (25 July 2014 - 05:32 PM) KBS V Tour is really good too, maybe a touch light but dispersion and feel is great.
@  BingHogan : (25 July 2014 - 05:31 PM) The MP 4 is a fine iron but there ain't nothin wrong with the 64 either!
@  TJR : (25 July 2014 - 03:42 PM) I've only hit a MP-4 6 iron in a simulator, but it felt great as to be expected! The only new release I've seen pictures of is the MP-15, which doesn't really interest me.
@  BingHogan : (25 July 2014 - 10:48 AM) Mizuno, where are those new MP 65's or ???. Hitting an MP 4 w/ KBS V Tour.
@  BingHogan : (25 July 2014 - 10:46 AM) Rusty!? 99% of them would be happy to be that rusty!
@  TJR : (24 July 2014 - 03:52 PM) It would be hard to argue that he isn't the greatest player of all time. It's only a matter of time before he breaks Snead's win record.
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 08:42 PM) That would still only be about 1/2 the wins of what Tiger will have when he hangs up the spikes.... But yet the haters will hate and that's life. Tiger still has 10 more years to win on PGA Tour .
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 08:39 PM) Well Dave we must be in the minority or too old to realize who's still one of the best golfers in the history of the game. When/ IF Rory and Speith have 50 wins in their careers then maybe I'll hold them in esteem with TIGER!
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 08:34 PM) Sorry MrParr1Noid, it was my auto spell check, I didn't even notice until you said that, No slip showing here.
@  petter7 : (23 July 2014 - 08:28 PM) Hmmm. Let's see…Tiger wins 5 times, leading money winner, player-of-the-year, #1 in the world, LAST YEAR!! And that was with a bad back!! Back is fixed with no more pain and he's still fit as any other tour player and he's washed up? LMAO
@  J13 : (23 July 2014 - 08:16 PM) Time will tell with Tiger but I hope Rory just doesn't disappear again for 2 years.
@  MrParr1Noid : (23 July 2014 - 08:15 PM) Then I suggest you re-read your response to me about 4 posts down. Your slip is showing .. :) .. Don't have time for your silly games either .. I"m out ..
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 07:56 PM) I don't know where you got shit 67 from shoot67 but it shows your mentality
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 07:53 PM) Tiger is far from done , he's got plenty of years to win b4 Champions Tour
@  MrParr1Noid : (23 July 2014 - 07:52 PM) I just have to laugh at that one TWshiit67, not about trashing Tiger but about Tiger's growning jowls like an old man.. :)
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 07:52 PM) Every time tiger doesn't win his career is over say so called experts then he rattles off 5 wins in one year, neither Rory or Speith have done that in any one season. And tiger diid it last year. Once Tiger plays a few more rounds he will win again.
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 07:49 PM) I just have to laugh at that one Mr Parr1Noid, not about protecting Tiger just laughing at GC proclaiming or anointing the next greatest every other week. Edit: Fixed Spelling,
@  MrParr1Noid : (23 July 2014 - 07:18 PM) Guys are so overly protective of Tiger. Tiger won't ever be the same (young) as he once was.. :) Guys like Rory and Speith are (younger) just coming into their game.. :) Tiger should be getting ready for the seniors tour cause he ain't never going to compete with these young guys again.
@  J13 : (23 July 2014 - 06:08 PM) haha agree TW. Speith is the new Rory?
@  TWshoot67 : (23 July 2014 - 04:24 PM) J- all it would take is for Speith to win his next outing or dare I say win the PGA and then he'd be the next great one! I mean he is 5 years younger then Rory!!
@  J13 : (23 July 2014 - 06:23 AM) I can't keep up with all of the "new" Tiger's in the game. I guess Speith is not in vogue anymore
@  ROBOPTI : (22 July 2014 - 11:20 AM) CALLAWAY V SERIES DRIVER PHOTO ON USGA LIST ;)
@  TWshoot67 : (21 July 2014 - 09:29 PM) Funny two weeks ago Adam Scott was the next coming of Tiger, now it's Rory again. neither can sniff what TIGER has done!
@  TWshoot67 : (21 July 2014 - 09:28 PM) J13 glad you said something, I have to laugh every time I watch or read anything from GC.

@  petter7 : (14 July 2014 - 01:14 PM) I believe Mizuno measurements are without the grip on the club vs. Titleist with the grip installed.
@  HossOnMoss : (14 July 2014 - 10:42 AM) Correct. They measure differently and are actually the same length.
@  TJR : (14 July 2014 - 05:45 AM) Melonhead - 38" (Titleist) 37.75" (Mizuno) - difference is probably the way the clubs are measured.
@  MN NICE : (14 July 2014 - 05:27 AM) MONDAYS ARE FOR SUCKERS!

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.

standard grip install is one wrap build up then one double sided tape.
- mid sized is plus three wraps build up tape
- oversized is plus 6 wraps build up tape

Shambles



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.
