I recently installed a new grip on my friend’s old driver. The TaylorMade 360 Ti was released around 2001. It is one of the lightest drivers still today and he acquired it in 2005.
This club is used about 4 times a year; kept in good shape. The shaft installed is a Grafalloy ProLite 35 with stiff flex. This shaft is one of the best and arguably most popular lightweight shaft, even today. Regular flex may be more suitable for casual golfers with average swing speeds. Trading a ProLite 35 R flex for his to install on my 5 wood is possible.
The previous grip was in bad shape so removed it; installed a Golf Pride Tour Velvet. This grip goes well with drivers, even if you prefer thicker grips for control.
While unimportant for casual golfers to spend big bucks for golf equipment, worn out grips create problems in ball control and blisters on your hands. Replacing worn grips makes old clubs more valuable, serviceable, and attractive. Replacing weak shafts gives clubs a long life if the club heads stay in decent shape and not taking frustrations out on your clubs.
The TaylorMade 360 Ti driver is an old beauty. My friend has no need to upgrade/replace as long as he keeps his clubs in good condition during winter storage. Some casual golfers have old or low quality clubs and can’t score. I highly suggest keeping this club in good shape and maintain it’s value on the golf course.
