Haha... Ghoonk, surprised you say NDMC grips are not kind on the fingers, they feel soft to me.

Guess you never played early cord grips which rip your skin off after a few swings.


Ok, I pm him, don't got his number.

Ok, I haven't tried the NDMCs myself yet, only fondled them at bfg. Was thinking of the white ones. Could be entirely different story when installed and taken out for a round I suppose.

I'm using the Dual Durometer cords and they're pretty soft.

Me dun get as many callouses and blisters on right-hand ring finger if use interlocking grip.

But me hit more conistently with Vardon grip.

Today a teaching pro at Turf City (not Tendy Tsai) told me I had too strong left-hand grip and too much tension in right arm during set up.

Gained more consistency somewhat and about 10-20 metres after adjucting my setup, but still feel pressure on right-hand ring finger through impact.

Maybe just need to practice until interlocking grip and setup changes ingrained (muscle memory) as habit.

NDMCs are interesting -- unlike GPTV and GPFC, you cannot turn the labels down, because they are not symmetrical

Found out the hard way Razz

good observation. you can't generate power if you are 'tight' or full of tension. The interlocking grip prevents you from gripping the club too hard as you will snap your finger joints. As you get more loose and relaxed, you will be able to generate more power from lag, and that will help your game Smile

Instead of wearing 2 gloves, try tape.

I use bowling tape on my left index knuckle, makes my right pinky's overlap slightly more comfortable too, like cushion Smile

Left side is X-Tra Skin. It uses a mild adhesive and together with a small piece of gauze forms like an "extra skin".

Center and right is regular bowling tape, just different sizes and color.

Bottom is thumb tape. Its actually used to tighten thumb holes directly on bowling ball just in case the thumb hole gets "loose" in the event your thumb shrinks when its too cold.

Erm.. ya.

Thanks ghoonk! Smile

The other alternative is basketball finger bands like the ones the NBA players use on their fingers.

However those might slip as they're non adhesive, just elastic.

Tried basketball finger bands, too thick, and yes, they slip. Tried normal plasters too, but they don't work too good. What did work for awhile was the adhesive bits of fabric plasters and chucking out the gauze bits, but that left some sticky residue on my grip Razz

ghoonk, thats sports tape. Readily, cheaply and widely available here in US. The tape is sticks to itself and not the fingers.

I think you can check in FESC some of the shops sell them.

Ghoonk, it's 3M Coban tape, pressure seals itself. Or the cheaper alternative is the 3M surgical paper tape which works fine too. Both tear easily enough off the roll so no need to carry scissors to the course.
