Putting grips on with air

I put all of my grips on using air.  Putting some grip solvent in the end right before install really helps.  It gives you a little bit of time after the grip is on to do some small adjustments to alignment.  The downside is you can't play with the club right away.  

I use charcoal lighter fluid and use just a little bit on the mouth of the grip. Putter grips I put the grip on on the vise and then put it in my jig fixture on the floor and hold it square and adjust if needed. Charcoal lighter fluid is cheap and evaporates fast. I have literally slid a grip on and walked out to the door right then and hit balls into my net

LOL I can see it now at your house---- Honey can you please re grip my driver before Saturday????  

that would probably work except I do the lefty stuff.  A young man newly excepted to a PGM program that we deal with was waiting for me to regrip. She took over and I went into a fitting.

I've been using air for about 15 years. With any rubber grip including the lower half of Multi compound I poke 2-3 holes with a small awl and go. Superstrokes have always been a go except the newer ones and the new Winns. If I need help I will spray some denatured alcohol and go quick as it dries pretty fast. I haven't done Winn grips in a long time and did one the other day and whole cover blew off!
