Since getting out of the public business and my buddy that was in the wholesale business closed down I mostly use Golf Works. I have done business with them for years and they IMHO have great service. I also use Hireko and Diamond Tour Golf.

 

One of my WRX buddies Tim turned me on the other week to Monark golf. I have not used them yet their web thing is www. monarkgolf. com--- Sorry I am not computer savy enough to link like others do.

 

I also do some business with a local owned shop here if I need only a grip or 2. My epoxy I use the Loctite brand which Home Depot carries. It has the same specs as far as shear strength etc as any golf epoxy. In fact the Loctite rep told me that they re package that same epoxy for different folks in the golf industry. I use air to put my grips on and off so I use regular masking tape that I buy cheaper at Home Depot too. To lube the mouth of the grip I use regular charcoal lighter starter which I get at either Wally Mart or Dollar general cheap. When doing it my way you do not use much solvent at all I think my quart is still half full after a year or more.  As you get into it more I can give you some other cheaper ways to do stuff as far as equipment etc

 

Stu, using Loctite has piqued my interest.  Is it a two part mix system like that which Golf Works sells or are you using one of the "Super Glue" tubes?

The local shop by me has used rubber cement since the 70's and it's fantastic. Works great, without the fumes.

 Rubber cement? for what?

Are we perhaps getting things mixed up here as far as regripping and or the use of epoxy type products for club repair/reshafting?

I'm confused obviously.

Wow! I thought so but wanted to clarify. I'm not sure I get using rubber cement. I'd certainly like to see how it's done. I can't visualize sliding on a grip with rubber cement applied to a shaft. And then I'd like to see what happens when you remove/change a grip. Have you witnessed any of this?

Yeah pretty much the same as any other grip change. Nice too because if you get any on the shaft, it peels right off by rubbing it.

Interesting. I suppose I can see the rubber cement peeling off easily. Would have never thought of this. Maybe next time a replace my grips I might try with one and see. I still can't envision a grip sliding down the shaft easily. The RC seems like it'd be too thick. Guess I'll have to find out.

Thanks

From my research most of the guys that have been in the business for years have done it this way. Always works nicely on my grips. Just thought I'd share

Go to Pure Grips......and use air pressure to install rather than glue.

My build up tape is blue painters tape and I install everything with air, no glue, no double sided tape and no solvent. It works with any grip, not just Pure grips. Some grips are more difficult to get on than others but they all work. Sometimes I may use a drop of solvent on my finger to help start a difficult grip onto the shaft. Makes changing the grip effortless. Can do a whole set removal and regroup in about 10 minutes maybe less if I hurry.

Do you use a regulator on your air tank so you don't use too much and blow the grip? I've heard of people doing that, just wasn't sure if it was necessary.

I have the little hot dog one from harbor freight, I got it for 50 bucks. It is 100 psi, it has a regulator on it already, I regulate it to around 60psi and have no trouble. I did make the investment in the Pure grips air tool nozzle. It's sort of expensive for what it is, but it sure is nice to have. I think I got it for 35-40 bucks.

I have that same compressor, bought it a few months back but haven't tried changing grips with it yet. I've looked at the PureGrips tool, might pick it up as well if I'm successful as changing them with air.

I have both the PURE tool and just a regular air gun nozzle with a metal tip.  Both work just fine.  The PURE tool is a little easier to put pressure on the grip with, but with some putter grips it's too small to actually use.

 

Then for the Superstrokes with counter core I remove the cap or weight and have a rubber tip for the regular nozzle that fits the hole.

There are a few grips that you have to be creative with the air tools. When i first started using air I used the metal tip nozzle but It kept pushing through the end of the grip and putting a crack in the end of the grip which then allowed the air to get out. So I just bought the tool. The only grip I've come across where the tool doesn't fit is the big putter grips. It does work for the 1.18 size Winn putter grip.

Ive been regripping all my clubs & have started doing some friends clubs for a few bucks. Have purchased grips from GolfWorks and Grips4Less with good success. I was going to buy some on eBay, but two of the sellers had feedback that they were selling counterfeits so, for now, I am staying clear of them.

 

QUESTION: I have been using a heat gun to remove old tape and it works great, but wondered if there is any impact to heating up the shafts, especially graphite ones?????
