Re-gripping with an air compressor


Recommended Posts

Has anyone had any practice removing the arccos connnect grips with the embedded sensor?  I need to get the sensor out and remove the grip.  Any tips/ideas? 

 

Yup, all you need is a heat gun/hair dryer and a cheap pick tool (I got a 3 pack of them at harbor freight for $2).

Heat up the cap of the grip (point the sensor away from the heat source), this slightly softens the material. Don’t overdo it.

Insert your pick tool, pokey end away from the battery in the sensor.

Work your way under one side of the sensor by keeping the pokey end of the pick pointed away from the sensor. Once you’ve worked your way under the sensor, turn the pick tool and gently lift the sensor out. Once one side comes out the sensor will pop out easily!

This past week I setup my new gripping station and thought I'd share a few pics. I purchased my setup from Maltby. I also got a new compressor. Wednesday evening I put everything to the test and regr

Just tried doing grips with air. It is going to completely revolutionize my re-gripping game! It only took me 5 minutes to pull a grip off, cut it down a couple inches, and throw it back on. I have to

So I was in the air compressor camp for the last 1-2 years since I first tried it. I love how easy it is to put on/remove grips however I was finding that my grips were twisting. Bought a roll of golfworks double-sided tape and some odorless mineral spirits and regripped 2 of my clubs today and was amazed to find out that it was just as easy. Not sure why I was so intimidated by the traditional method before! I think I'll personally be doing the tape/solvent route for my own clubs, but it'll be cool to blow grips on when trying them out for the first time, if they're able to be installed that way.

I'm just too lazy to buy a compressor. I had to remove 3 grips yesterday from my wedges and they were using the double sided tape. With the right tool, removing them only took 2mins per grip.

So I'll stick with solvent and tape as well.

I bought a grip saving tool, its like a long thin blade (probably a bad description, it's not sharp at all on any edge). You use it to get solvent in an existing grip and then you work the device in and can save an existing grip. Have pulled probably about 20 grips so far without damaging. A regular iron grip I can pull in less than a minute for reuse. The fat putter grips take a bit longer.

I prefer air because the grips are way easier to pull and reuse. I’m too much of a gear ho to stick with any particular combination of head shaft and grip long enough to wear out grips, so air works for me.

I’ve tried the grip saver method before going to air but found it was impossible to completely get rid of all the tiny bits of tape that would cling to inside of the grip and cause little bumps and ridges when I would reinstall. It drove me crazy.

Yup, had to remove my Arccos grips on my F8 Woods so I could install the Shotscope tags...just removed the grips with my cutter tool(razor sharp with a hook on the end).

This is awesome, thank you!!  I’ve got to get a pick tool, but will do shortly.  Have you had any luck removing or installing the connect grips themselves?

The connect grips remove just like any other grip.

If you want to reuse the grip, I use a grip removal tool (like this one: https://www.golfworks.com/the-golfworks-v-groove-grip-remover/p/vggrv/?country=US?country=US&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIhazm1vOl6gIVR9bACh2XtwpiEAQYASABEgJ-HPD_BwE ) and purell. Purell stays in a gel form and does not run all over the place the way mineral spirits does. It’s also Covid-19 friendly and not as dangerous from a health perspective.

One note about the Lamkin crossline cobra connect grips, if you install and uninstall them with air, watch your psi, they get a bit “bulgy” if you overdo it, their fingerprint tech grips have a softer feel and can bulge out.

If you don’t reuse, just put the sensor aside and cut the buggers off.

They install exactly like any other grip, you can use tape and mineral spirits, or use air (watch your psi), or take it to the pro shop and pay em $3 a grip!
