I am looking at trying the grip one non-taper std size wrap grip that golfworks sells for only $1.65 on their website in hopes that it will take away some lower hand action to prevent some hooking? I know these grips are made for arthritis or for natural golf, but after reading so many threads on here about pro's having their right hand built up (and me doing the same for myself) I was just wondering if anyone took the tape guess work out of it and went for the non-taper grips? And if so how well they worked to prevent the hooking/heavy draws...

I use nothing but Tacki-Mac Unified Grips.  They have no taper - and are bigger than a standard grip.  Not sure if it helps the hooksies or not... but I do know I can't stand the "feel" of a standard grip.  It feels wayyyy too thin, like I am grabbing a pencil in my right hand.  This grip is very durable too.  You can get them on ebay... you could always try one on one club to see if you like it.

I use Funky golf grips which don't taper as much as most regular grips. If use a normal grip, I just build the right hand up a bit.

Hmm, I usually use midsize grips, and build up the bottom half a little. I'm about due for a regrip. Do you think these would accomplish the same thing? It would probably be a little less work for me, and hopefully easier to get on.
