    To standard size grips I think. Every fitting chart I try says I should be in midsize. I've tried 2 or 3 different brands and just cannot get them to feel good for me. I hit the ball ok with them, just feel dead.

    Keep an eye out, going to have some Lamkin Crossline midsize grips in the classifieds section soon enough.

    The multicompounds on the i3's and wedges are standard. :)

    It doesn't seem to affect my shots much if at all.

    I haven't changed the grips on my irons yet, and they're standards. My old irons were midsize and besides feeling different I didn't see much of a difference. My wedges are still midsize...I like midsize on my wedges.

    So the Mack Daddy wedges I ordered came with DG shafts and standard Lamkin grips. I have some REL's ordered but not here yet. Took the MDs out for a spin last night and today in the field behind our house. Was all over the place, chunking & blading...just ugly.

    For the heck of it, I put on a Crossline midsize and saw almost immediate better results.

    Now, more confused than ever. Do I go standard (granted I use 4 wraps if tape) on my irons and midsize on my wedges? That seems like a recipe for disaster.

    I just put Lamkin crossline mids on all my clubs. 2 wraps, 3 on the wedges. Immediate improvement.

    Jim trying to decide which grip is like the player who has to carefully line up the logo on the ball and plumb bob from both sides of the hole... for his 4th putt.:D
