How often to you regrip?

Recommended Posts

Does everyone try to regrip anually? It seems like a lot of people do. I have not regripped my irons for over three years, but they still feel like they're brand-new. I wash them every few rounds with soap and water. I assume since soap is basic, it breaks down the oils left on the grip? What are everyone's thoughts/opinions?

I've found that it really depends on the grips. I bought my Adams XTD Tours with Iomic grips on them. I have really liked these grips, and see no reason to change them after a season's use.

 

I had another set of grips (from Champ) that, after a season, got hard and slick and just had to go.

There was a time I played one set for over two years, and I think I had them regripped once.

Who are you and what did you do with the real Carolina Golfer 2?? 😂🤣😂😁

For me, it depends. I regrip them when they need to be regripped, i.e. Show wear or develops a shine. I clean my grips after every round so they tend to last longer.

It all depends on how much you play and how well you take care of your equipment.  Also as mentioned some grips just last longer than others.

 

I can usually get a few seasons out of grips, but like Carolina it's rare that a club lasts longer than the grip.  My SLDR driver is the only contender (4 years and still going) and I've regripped it once or twice.

My iron grips are GP Tour Velvet. I play 50-70 rounds a year so, even though I clean them, it seems like they should be wearing out by now.

Cleaning helps a ton. I prefer to have a lot of tackiness to my grips so I tend to wear through some grips a little faster at times

Every year for my driver and scoring wedge. Every other year for the full set. Though I switched to the MCC +4 last year, so maybe they won't wear out as fast. Putter as needed, it could be a long time before that needs changed

I feel like the companies are doing a heck of a job manufacturing more durable grips these days. I'm not as much of a ho as the rest here and still have never needed to change a grip because of wear.

 

The first thing I do when I get a club is swap the grip. I just don't want someone else's hand juice. If I change a grip after that, it's because I'm in the mood to try something else. I finally decided to take the plunge on a removal tool because it just seemed like a waste to ditch good grips.

 

My irons are entering their 7th season in my bag. I just changed the grips for the first time since I've had them. I didn't even change them because of wear....I changed them because I wanted to try something different. If I had the tool at the time, I could've saved the grips and let someone else benefit too!

 

As others have said, results may vary but your grips will last as long as you take care of them. I clean mine with dish soap once or twice during the year but that's about it.

 

 

I do hoe my grips though. Here's a quick count:

 

Club/Age/Grips

Driver/ 4m /3

3wood/ 3y /5 (about to be 6)

Hybrid/ 4m /1 (thinking about 2)

Irons/ 7y /2

Wedges/ 5y /3

STX/ 5y /3

Fang/ 6m /3

MLA/ 4m /2 (thinking about 3)

I change them at the beginning of the season, and then again in June or July as I play well over 100 rounds plus practice every year. I just like the feel of new grips.

I change mine every spring just before golf season. Winn dritec midsize. I also clean the grips after each round. I don't wear a glove so I have added reason to keep them clean after a round

I like softer grips so it's about once a year, if you like corded grips and take care of them with regular washes they could last I while.

Usually when I want to try new grips out. About once a year on my irons, a little more often on my driver, as I like to experiment.

That's interesting. I find that my GP Tour Velvets last longer than my GP New Decade Multi Compounds, which are already starting to wear out even though I just got them at the end of last summer. Maybe I need more soap.

When I played a lot more it was every year. But lately it's been every 2 or so.
