Grip material is also something very important. The material could be made up of rubber as they are very durable and will last for a long time to come and will also give a very good grip which most golfers are aiming for.
Some people get used to a particular type of golf grip and if they have to change it, could be very uncomfortable since they are using a particular type from years. Keep in mind this is the change which could help you a great deal. But if you keep on playing then things will improve and you will get used to it. Golf grip has to be fitted well and should not be loose if that happens then may affect the performance of the golfer and that is the last thing one wants.
