Re-gripping with an air compressor


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I think I am going to go pick up a 3 gallon pancake compressor this weekend. I have a few upcoming house projects that I think that will be a good size for. My new grips came in the mail today so are ready to be put on as soon as I get the compressor.

What are people using for solvent? I noticed it mentioned above for helping getting grips on/off.

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

You don't need solvent.  The solvent can be used to help remove grips that were put on with grip tape and solvent, but unnecessary when putting on grips with air.  But it's faster to just cut them off.

 

Most all grips can be put on with air.  I have found that the Winn grips with the hard rubber collar are very difficult, but can be done with a little solvent.  I use grip solvent from Golfworks because I still have some left over from when I used grip tape.  Some people have used lighter fluid, and I know one person that has used gasoline.  I DO NOT recommend that!!

 

FYI, if you haven't watched the video on the Pure website yet, I recommend that you do.  There are some tips/techniques that help getting the grips on.  After you do it a few times, easy peasy; lemon squeezy.

If you don't have grip solvent use mineral spirits, I only used it to remove the grips that had double sided tape on it. It really is very simple. Look up on you tube and watch a video or 2. You don't need to use solvent at all to put the grip on, I dipped my finger in it and put some just on the lip opening of the grip to help start the grip over the end of the shaft, I would use at least a small price of masking or painters tape on the end of the shaft to help with a smooth transition for the grip.

If you leave the shaft bare, at least put a piece of painter's tape on the end of the shaft and fold it into the shaft end.  The shaft is usually pretty sharp and can catch on the inside of the grip.

I have the Pure Grips gun too.  When I first bought the Pure grips, the online shop (can't remember which one) included it for free with 13 grips ordered.  So handy.

I also use the Pure gun. I got mine from Grips4less.com, I think...or it could have been one of the authorised resellers on ebay.

I use a kit similar to this one.  I use the triggered accessory holder and the barbed nozzle on the second row down in the center, directly under the center inflating needle.  Works really well.

Thanks

I bought it at either Tractor Supply or Lowe's, it has been so long I have forgotten.  You can use the other attachments for a variety of things at home.  The tire chuck is used a  good bit, my cars have the pressure sensing devices and when it turns cold I have to put air in all of my tires.

I ended up finding this kit off eBay from someone that puts them together for this purpose. Looks similar to the pure grip one but metal end instead of plastic. Plus came with some stuff I wanted to get anyway like a utility knife with a hooked end and a rubber piece for the vise. At $27 it was cheaper than just the pure grip gun.

I didn't end up finishing yet. I tried to do it during my kids nap time but that went shorter than anticipated and taking the old tape off is kind of a pain and by far the most cumbersome part. Next time I won't have that step so should go way quicker. Thanks everyone for all the helpful tips, I ended up using a lot of them. Picture is a preview...I could not decide on a color so...why not?

I used to use mineral spirits or Varosol. Now I use charcoal lighter fluid. It is cheaper I usually get it at Dollar General. A quart will last me a year or so and I do a lot of grips with all my club experimenting and tinkering. I just use a little bit on the mouth of the grip to get it started and swoosh! it is on. It also evaporates real quick too

I got this very one. The one I got leaks from the the quick release valve which made it a pain to use--had to refill frequently--like every 1 or 2 clubs. I think I am going to take it back and see if I get get one that works a little better-I still have some adjustments to do.

A heat gun makes easy work stripping tape off. Clean the shaft with some acetone and your all set. Also alleviates the possibility of damaging graphite shafts.

I improvised with what I had--hair dryer and this stuff called Goo Gone for cleaning the shaft--works great for getting stickers off.

Gonna join the cool kids and regrip with air. Snagged a Black and Decker ASI300 off the bay. It looks like it'll do grips nicely and any other lil jobs. Like that it can use a regular outlet or the cigarette outlet.

Question, instead of getting messy and removing old tape. Could I just add a layer of painters tape and go from there?
