Same here - cadet S gloves, if I use gloves.

I prefer Lamkin ACE Wrap right now, since I can easily stretch them 0.5 Inch to have them play a bit thinner. I might try Tour Wrap undersize next time or REL ACE undersize, when regripping in spring.

Regards,
Michael

Make sure the undersize grip core matches the shaft butt diameter, or else you are playing a grip over standard.

That's another thing I have to be careful about in selecting a grip... it certainly makes a big difference!

Have any of you guys tried anything from Iomic or another manufacturer?
pure grips makes a great undersize grip and can be bought on the bay for a really good price last time i checked
The MCC Plus 4 Grey are now offered undersized and I'm going to give them a shot.

I have Crossline M60 grips on DGR200 shafts (.580) which feel just about perfect to me.

From what I understand putting a .6 grip on a .58 shaft results in an above standard grip size.
So if you're looking for an undersized grip this would do the opposite for you.
This severely limits your options if your shafts are .6
E.g. All Lamkin & Golfpride undersized grips are .58 and therefore will not work on a .6 shaft.

Super Stroke's Cross Comfort grips have an undersized option in .6 - I haven't tried them.
Ping and Iomic are other options.

It's the opposite.  A .600 grip on a .580 shaft will result in an undersized grip, not an oversized one.

Yes, that is what I meant, thanks for the correction.

Get the grips made specifically for the Asian market, they are smaller to accommodate golfers with smaller hands and has more choices with sizes.
Not the made for the US/European branding the name, because it will be the same size as the other ones available here.  I remember the Iomic grips had smaller OD when first appeared here when it was all from the Japanese market.  Iomic USA has standardized the size to conform with the local market.

Or, one could experiment with the old fashion way of leather material.  Used to be we get the adhesive backed leather strips from OEM and the prep work would be minimum.  Hard to find those in the last decade and what's available were too expensive.  Rumor had it that a certain golfer named Arnaold had cornered the market by scooping up all the remaining leather strips made for golf grips on the markets.  Difficult to get to it now, nor to confirm this.
But, I might experiment with using the Tanner adhesive tape on top of a built up shaft then wrap the leather strip on it.  No mess with the glue we used to apply. No end cap for the shaft would make it look "primitive" and to ask a SE Asia rubber /plastic factory to re-tool their machine to produce end grip will probably cost more than $3,000.  That's over 12.000 end caps which I had no intention of stock it up for decades.  
Unless it had become a new fashion for the DIY leather golf grips for the hobbyist.

We hello my fellow small cadet glove buying friends. I use the golf pride CP2 Undersized. So far so good. I've also used the undersized Tour Velvets and wasn't a fan.

Although a standard grip size myself. The most popular in the shop for golfs that fit "undersize" has been
Winn drytec
Golf Pride 2G followed closely by the CP2 models

Really? I didn't think they had undersized grips. I even thought their standard size was slightly larger than normal standard. Which style?
