BestGrips Genuine Leather Golf Grip sizes and shapes are a little different than your run of the mill rubber golf grip. Because our leather grips feature real moisture management solutions, we don't rely on the aggressive taper most rubber grips use to keep the club in your hands. Our taper, which we call the ProTaper, equates to about a 3 wrap increase in the bottom section, or where your dominant hand is placed on the grip. This reduces taper shape has become so popular, even a few rubber grip manufacturers are offering it as an option.
As far as sizing goes, there's a few factors you must always pay attention to when deciding on size. First, the size of the butt of the shaft and it's taper where the grip will go. Shafts can range from .580" to .625" and it's important to both know the size of your shafts and to make them as close to each other as possible with tape before installing your grips. Second, how your hands grip the club will influence the size of grip that gives you the best results. If you grip the club more with your fingers, you'll be better off with a smaller grip than we recommend below. If you grip the club with more of your palm, you'll be better off with a larger grip than we recommend.
The BestGrips Leather Golf Grip Size Chart is below where the differences in each of our grips is explained and we recommend a grip based on the golf glove you use (or used if you're switching to the MicroPerf). Our Undersize plays just slightly smaller than a 60R rubber grip, our Standard plays like a 58R rubber grip (meaning standard size on a .580 shaft) and our Midsize plays like a larger midsize rubber grip. However, there's no standardized grip sizing in golf and no two rubber grips play alike.

Not Your Grandfather's Club Grip
With smooth top-grain leather, our Classic Leather Golf Grip reimagines leather in the modern world. The Classic won't have as much texture or tack as the MicroPerf, but is still treated with ProTack, and will get tacky when wet. Our club grips all utilize a reduced taper design we call ProTaper, which features a build-up of roughly three wraps in the bottom half of the grip. Every grip is hand made in the USA with a subtle stitch that acts as a reminder rib.
