Hi Guys,

 

I wanted to get thicker grips for my clubs and was wondering if anyone on here regrips their own clubs? I've only just started getting back into golf, and bought myself a set of Tommy Armour Evo's fron GCO. Problem is I'll pay have of what I paid for the clubs to get them regripped if I take them to get done by the pro shop.

 

I've youtubed it and it seems relatively simple (especially if you have an air compressor) but wanted to see what peoples experience with it was like. Is it as easy as they make out?

 

Also, anyone bought grips on ebay? I know there are some dodgy fake clubs floating around online, but wanted to know if it's extended to grips?

Don't waste your money regripping them at the shops. There are counterfeit Golf Pride grips especially the new decade multi compound ones so if it's too good to be true.. Try Sharpro grips, can get a full set of 13 landed for around $60 and the reviews on them are decent. UST Mamiya grips also get good reviews.

Cheers for the advice. Where have you seen them at this price? Did a quick google search but I'm always a little skeptical about online stores when it comes to golf gear...

Ebay. If you want slightly larger grips, you can also consider adding several layers of tape to build it up.

Thanks for that. I'll look into it.

Yeah, ebay for grips ........ and then go visit the golfsmith website ..... as they have tutorials on how to re-grip your own clubs, under the clubmaking section I think.

 

Its pretty easy to re-grip them yourself, ..... :)

I regrip mine by myself. Like you, after watching a few vids on youtube it became quite easy. A mistake I made more than once in the beginning was to not make sure that the very end of the grip was seated properly. So, after you slide the grip onto the shaft, make sure to use your palm over the end of the grip to seat it properly. Otherwise, you'll have a loose knob floating around under your left palm when you swing. 

 

The air-compressor technique is awesome though. It is fast, and there is no waiting for the solvent to solidify, so you can hit the clubs as soon as you take them out of the vice. 


I am not an intelligent man. I wasn't born with a good memory, wisdom, acumen, wit, intelligence or a good memory.

As above; it isn't difficult at all and you only need a cheap 12v compressor to do the job ...

 

... oh and definitely use a length of PVC when blowing glued grips off; the explosion can be impressive :P

All of this sounds fine and you are correct, fitting grips is not rocket science but like any DIY you have to add up all of the costs and not just the $6.95 per grip you might be saving. Think of -

Grips
Glue
Glue applicator
Tape
Solvent
Compressor
Needles and Syringes
And most importantly your time!!

And if that all adds up in your favour, I hope you don't bugger it up.

No need for the glue, glue applicator, solvent, needles or syringes.

 

An air compressor and some masking tape is all you need and once you do it the easy way (no glue) the next set takes less than an hour to change ..... piece of piss ......

You don't need all that stuff and if I can do it, anyone can.  You can regrip a whole set within an hour without an air compressor and have a few beers while your doing it.

Yep, you need grips, double sided tape, solvent and a knife/Stanley blade. That's it. Double sided tape = $3, solvent = $8, Stanley blade = $4. So $1.15 in materials per club for 13 clubs. You can reuse the solvent if you use a tray to catch the excess and obviously the blade can be reused. So, subsequently, you are only paying 23 cents per club in materials. Just add the costs of grips to that and it really is only $5/grip installed with a grip of your choice.

Are you going to put the club in a vice or just rest it between two empty stubbies?

Is the tray free?? What is holding the club so that the tray can sit underneath it??
