I have been trying to contact them for two weeks to order some of their large grips.
So far I have not been able to get a response. I did hear on the answering machine the name "Arlyne" which I recall is the person who has full filled my previous orders.
If they are not longer in business, is there a source of the grips they had been providing?
When the economy fell off a cliff things got tight and Tom needed to find other work. I don't know the status of the business beyond that.
There are other grips that are similar (non-tapered, same diameter). If you want I may have some BGG grips; I know I have a bunch of non-tapered grips (I've used Crossline Jumbos with my special build up for a while). I'll let you know.
I e-mailed them yesterday, but still no reply. The Jumbo GP's you mentioned also have limited taper toward lower hand. Guess since no one knows the source of BGG's grips I'll have to use the GP's for my customers.
Be careful of some of the grips online. Some of them, although they don't taper, are too big. I don't know what size your hands are but mine are large and the Golf Pride Tour Wrap Jumbo grips I mentioned are perfect for me. Even though they taper a little the lower part of the grip is just right for my hand. At least give them a look if you have a shop close to you that has them before ordering some of the other grips online.
I have found that the straight lock grip works well for me. I am still doing the HSS swing and the grip seems compatible. Since I have always had a hard time involving my shoulders with HSS I have also incorporated the MGS twist. Both of these changes seems to give me a better release in my swing.
