Peter, I think this is relevant...when we talked about grip strength and concluded it was "holding power"...the average golfer has grip strength but it's the kind that squeezes the grip and actually inhibits a good whip/release...mainly because of the tight grip, the wrists get locked...need a non squeezing type grip that gets strength from it's form and not pressure (I think)...the SA grip is perfect for this because of the amount of skin on the grip gives more traction...jmo, hp
