I really want to pull the trigger on a leather grip but no one I know has any experience with them. My biggest concern is the size. I really like the size of the Scotty pistolini but I don't know which gripmaster would be the most like it, standard or mid? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Can anyone please offer a size comparison to other common grips? I'd really like to get one but a bit pricey just to experiment.

I've got one on a Lajosi I've ordered that should arrive in a few days.  Asked for it to be thickened to more midsize (think Kari was going to put some wraps on it) so will get back to you.

I have a Cabretta and Deer.  Cabretta should be closer to size, but it seems heavy (to me at least) and not soft as the other leather grips.  The Deer is a softer grip, but may be a little bigger, not sure you will be able to tell the difference.  I'm not sure of the weights (can't find that anywhere), but I think all these grips will be heavier.


Edit:  I just looked at the '12 catalog and the John Daly Kangaroo may be between these models.

I have several Gripmaster grips, but have never really been able to get used to them. They feel slightly larger to me than normal grips, and while I love how they look and their texture, something about the size and shape doesn't work for me. Slightly bigger than a normal grip, but not quite midsized, if that makes sense, in my opinion.

Would love to see some pics of the putter.

Can leather grips be built up (2 wraps at most) like other grips? Anything I should watch out for?

I just checked them out and seems pretty good considering they're offering free shipping.

I do 2 wraps under mine.  Makes it feel a little wider than standard.  For me, standard is like a golf pride pistol/pingman style grip. I think a standard size gripmaster with no extra wraps feels the same or slightly larger than a gp, standard size gripmaster with 2 wraps makes it feel perfect.

What color are you looking for? I've got a few extras...

Probably just looking for plain ole black. Unless you have something interesting. Shoot me a pm.
