What Is The Best Golf Grip For Both Comfort AND Control?

Combining the control of a cord golf grip and the soft comfort of a standard grip, the new 2016 Karma Half Cord Golf Grips are the best of both worlds.

Cord golf grips are best known for their superior traction in wet and humid conditions.  However for many, the corded golf club grips tend to be abrasive and produce a less than desirable feel. To solve this problem, grip manufacturers have made half cord grips in different configurations.  For years the cord in a half cord grip was placed along the back half of the grip, but that is all changing.

Karma Half Cord Golf GripsThe Karma Half-Cord grip series features cord in the upper half of the grip to prevent slippage and reduce shot dispersion while the bottom half of the grip comprises of soft rubber to provide comfort and the right amount of traction.

Karma Half Cord Golf GripThe Karma Half-Cord grip series has a reduced amount of taper in which the lower half of the grip is built up to +1/32″.  These multi-textured grips are offered in a myriad of color combinations as well as multiple sizing for those looking for new grips for golf clubs.

What is a Modern Half Cord Golf Grip?
Karma Half Cord Grip Upper Half
Before we answer the question, “What is a half cord golf grip”, we first need to understand what the cord is. Cord grips have a layer of cloth or linen fibers that protrude through the grip’s outer surface of the grip to improve the traction. Cord grips are compression molded. At the beginning of this process, the fibrous material is actually pressed into the rubber composition grip surface. Next a second layer of rubber, known as the “skim” layer, is molded over this initial rubber/fiber matrix. The grips are then sanded to reveal the fiber (or cord) layers. This process is more labor intensive and as a result costs more to manufacturer.

The cord in the grip may be arranged in any number of patterns, including full cord, half cord, and even 1/4 cord. The latter two positions the cord material in the upper half or back of the grip where added traction may be needed most. For most experienced golfers, the term half-cord will conjure up the image of the cord running along the bottom side the full length of the grip (as pictured).

Full Cord Golf Grip Compared to Half Cord Golf GripModern half cord grips position the cord differently. The grip contains the corded material in the upper half of the grip to prevent slippage, while the bottom half consists of the softer, all-rubber composition that maintains the nice soft feel.

Karma Half Cord Golf GripsRegardless if you are talking about a full cord or half cord golf grip, these both provide a superior feel in all weather conditions. While they tend to cost more, these grips will last longer than rubber Download the 2015 Hireko Golf Equipment Cataloggrips and will not need to be replaced as quickly. Plus today’s half cord grips are available in a myriad of colors compared to the boring black grips with perhaps a single accent color you remember your father using.

How To Properly Extend A Graphite Golf Shaft

Hireko is now offering a new golf shaft extender “system” to properly extend a graphite golf shaft and even steel golf shafts.

One of the most common repairs a golf clubmaker will encounter is extending golf clubs. Extending a steel shaft is pretty straight forward. That is if you have a 0.600” shaft then you order a 0.600” steel golf shaft extender and install it. However, extending graphite golf shafts it is not so cut and dry. Graphite shafts have a much larger range of butt diameters than steel, plus choosing the correct graphite shaft extender is not based on the outside diameter of the shaft, but the insider diameter. Two 0.600” butt end graphite shafts can have entirely different sized openings depending upon the weight and wall thickness of the shaft.

Download the 2015 Hireko Golf Equipment CatalogEleven is far better than two
In the past, graphite shaft extensions have come in two different sizes; standard and oversize. These two were to fit all the different models in the industry by either sanding until it fit the inside of the butt or wrapping masking tape around the stem or insertion end to act as a shim. Hireko is now offering a new extender “system” to properly extend a graphite and even steel shaft. We have 11 different color-coded sizes plus a measurement tool to take out the guesswork and have an extender that fits properly.

Graphite and Steel Golf Shaft ExtendersThe three largest extenders serve double-duty by fitting graphite or the most popular steel shaft sizes (0.560”, 0.580” or 0.600”). Usually this is a no-no with other graphite shaft extenders, but these are made of high-quality nylon blended plastic that is durable enough to extend a steel shaft without breaking.

Golf Shaft ExtendersThe beauty of the system
What makes this shaft extender system work so well is the Graphite Golf Shaft Measurement Gauge. No more second guessing what size to order. To use, simply insert the gauge into the butt end of the shaft you wish to extend without forcing it in. When the gauge stops you identify the color just above the butt of the shaft and order or choose the correct size shaft extender from your inventory to do the job correctly. This will allow for slight sanding for a better epoxy bond or you can order the color code just below it.

Do I need all the different sizes for my shop?
The answer is no if you don’t mind the additional work of sanding the insertion end of the extender to the exact fit of the shaft you are trying to extend. The Gold (0.500”), Red (0.530”) and Black (0.560”) will be the most popular and allow for sanding the smaller sizes and still leaves enough depth of the flutes for additional epoxy adhesion.

 

Tips to Extending Graphite / Steel Shafts

  1. Always epoxy the shaft extension in place, do not rely on a pressure fit.
  2. Lightly abrade the insertion end prior to installation to give the epoxy a better hold.
  3. Make sure the transition Golf Shaft Extendersstep fits tightly against the very end of the shaft and there is no gap. This will allow for 2” of insertion depth.
  4. Once the epoxy has cured, cut the butt end to the desired golf club length with a friction or hack saw. NOTE: Never extend a graphite or steel shaft more than 2″ (unless it is a putter shaft). Any more may cause premature failure due to stress where the extension is made. If you need longer golf clubs (greater than 2”) it is best to re-shaft rather than risk using one of these graphite golf shaft extensions. The same goes for any commercially available steel shaft extensions.
  5. Never extend a golf club that already has been extended previously.
