    okay, so i may come into the possession of a prostaff 6.0 85 at a great price, with a fairway grip on it no less. here's the problem. its an l2 size grip and i play l3. now, is there anyway to increaese the size of the grip without ruining the grip, cuz hell those grips are hard to comeby.

    At your local pro shop (or if you wanna do it yourself), the stringer usually can build up the grip by using this type of shrink wrap that they wrap around the handle after removing the entire grip. Build it up a size and put your leather back on and overgrip if you use it... and you're done.

    yeah i have the shrink wrap here actually, but i heard they make the handles feel more rounded, i definately like a very very beveled feel, or doesn't the shrink wrap sleeve add that much roundness (for lack of a better word) to it. does this mean that leather grips can be removed and replaced easily?
