Golf Technology — Choosing A Golf Grip

When people are shopping for new golf irons online, they typically think about the club face and shaft, throwing the grip to the wayside. At Renegar Golf, we fully believe that the grip is the last thing that you should think about while purchasing a golf club online (as they are replaceable), but wouldn’t it be nice if you could find the perfect grip, shaft, and club face all at the same place?

At Renegar Golf, we manufacture precision golf clubs for both professionals and weekend warriors. In our many iterations of research and development, we found Lamkin golf grips to be the most logical strategic alliance for our golf iron company. Why? Well, to put it simply, they offer unmatched quality and performance — qualities that we found necessary to integrate with our new golf iron design.

In today's blog, we will be discussing how to properly choose a grip for your new golf irons. Continue reading for some tips we have learned from the professionals over at Lamkin grips!

Consider What Size You Want

When it comes to choosing the best new golf grip for your new club, size is the most important consideration to be made. Luckily, it is not as complex as it might sound, being that there are only four basic grip sizes: Undersize, Standard, Midsize, and Oversize. If you are between sizes, do not fret, as a simple tape job can dial in your grip to the size that feels best in your hands.

If anyone has told you that grip size doesn't matter, they are surely wrong. Especially being that in most people a properly sized grip can shave three to four strokes off of each round.

Check The Surface Texture

How did the grip get its name? Well… because you have to grip it — and it must be effective too. Because of this, it is important to consider the texture of the grip. The texture will work in conjunction with your gloves or palms to keep the club grip firmly in your hands — where it belongs.

When you are testing a grip that you might potentially want to add to one of your new golf irons, it is important to consider how the texture of the club would benefit or inhibit your game during all elements. After all, a great grip is not a great grip if it becomes slippery when wet.

Consider The Quality Of The Club

When shopping around for a new grip for your golf club, the quality of your golf club should make a huge impact on the grip that you end up choosing. After all, you're not going to waste your time installing a state of the art grip on a 30-year-old club. If you have new golf irons that are claimed to be “the most forgiving golf irons that the industry has seen in decades,” it makes more sense to do so.

Luckily, when you shop at Renegar Golf, your source for precision golf products, you won’t have to worry about the quality of your grip — because all of our precision made golf clubs are equipped with Lamkin grips. Browse our extensive inventory of new golf irons today!
