Re-gripping with an air compressor


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

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!

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!

The Porter-Cable C2002-WK (pancake air compressor at reviewwhore.com) is an amazing compressor that sudden spikes in demand for a 120V engine, with the limit enough to control little air devices and effectively top off an inflatable cushion or your vehicle tires. A great many people are mindful about associating medium to high limit hardware in the house and in equal use with other house apparatuses. All things considered, the C2002-WK is sheltered to interface with your AC electrical plugs, which you should do to top off the tank when air runs out. It is one of the best pancake air compressor.

Have not read all this but I do this allot. Make sure you have something to go over shaft and grip incase they blow and they can! I already know some grips will come off and some won't, dual cords are brutal they get stuck in the thumb area and thin grips are dangerous they can blow. start with solvent down the top put your safety device over it , use small amount of air and wiggle top of the grip and work down. I got cut in the wrist and leg once with one exploding.  Be careful . Some grips are a breeze on and off with ease. 

Yep, they're loud too! Ears were ringing for a good while after I had a MCC burst on me (they burst right where the cord joins the rubber, and leave a pretty good welt too!)

 Lessons learned: Warm grips first, V hot water for 5 mins is good. Roll the grip up the shaft and back again as far as you can a couple of times, roll back to normal before using air. I now use a 18" tube of PVC plumbing pipe as a sleeve over the grip, being so narrow,  just wider than the fattest part of the grip, it stops blow outs or "bubbles" forming that ruin grips.

I just used the air compressor to put on my new grips but I also used the two sided tape and the solvent I think it took maybe 20 seconds to put one grip on it was great will always use the air compressor to put grips on

The video on the Pure Grips website shows how to do it.  The air nozzle they use is very nice but not really necessary; however, I use it and like it.  Had it for years now.

Don't really need to use Pure Grips; most others work fine, but I've used Pure DTX for years.  They last more than a year.

Hardest part is getting the old grips and tape off.  When you put blue painters tape on a clean shaft, the next time you change grips, they just blow off.

The other feature is if you want to try out a different grip, you can blow the grip off, install new one, then go back to the old one if you want without destroying it.

I have never had a grip blow up.  Shouldn't be a problem if you use painter's tape and very short bursts of air like they say in the video.  I suppose if the grip is stuck and you used a long burst of air, it can happen.

yep I did the short burst and it worked great .. also this was my first time so I was extra careful .. at one point the grip did shoot off but once I got the hang of it grips were going on easily.

 I just installed a few grips using an air for the first time last night. I can’t believe how easy if was. I will never go back to tape and solvent again. I just wish I would have tried it sooner. I got so excited to try it on my new driver shaft that I forgot to trim it to length first. Lol. No problem there now, just blew it off quick, trimmed to my playing length, and blew it back on. So frickin’ awesome. 🤯

Lol. Part of the reason I was a late adapter was the compressor. I have had a portable air tank for years but not a compressor. I just happen across a portable Dewalt Booster Pack/Air Compressor from my local hardware store on sale and couldn’t resist anymore. This thing is perfect for grips. I set it to 60psi, pull the trigger of my grip gun, and hit start. It slowly builds up pressure while I keeps some pressure on the grip and just wait for it to slip right on.  I bet I have yet to actually get to 60psi and see no way I could blow out a grip with this thing.
