Today I want to talk to you about grips and how the proper ones can make a HUGE difference in your game.
There are many elements that you should consider when evaluating your grips, and each one can have a major effect on your performance. Here are a few pointers:
First, your grips should have a "tackie" or "sticky" feel to them. If you play twice or three times a week you should be replacing your grips every season.
Second, it is important to clean your grips on a monthly basis using warm soapy water and a nylon brush. This will get the oil and dirt from your hands out of the grips returning them to a "like new" condition. Keeping your grips in good condition will help you swing looser and hit more consistent shots.
Next, grip sizing. The size of grip that you select can really make a difference in how you hit the ball. Larger grips promote less wrist action while smaller grips let your wrists move more freely. Larger grips can also be great for players who struggle with arthritis or other pain in their hands or wrists.
Finally, different grips are made out of different materials, and they can affect performance. Many of today’s grips are made with multiple types of rubber, which can help absorb vibration while remaining soft to the touch. There are also grips with a material called “cord” built into them. This grippy material can really be a benefit for players who struggle with perspiration in their hands, and also those who play in rainy climates.
If you have any questions please let us know or talk to your local pro and take a close look at your grips. As we all know, its the little things that can make a HUGE difference!
