Congratulations testers!  How many will be installing them, and how many will go somewhere to install them?

I am needing new grips so I’m very interested in the feedback. 
 

So I went ahead and ordered these. I dont have a great set up for grip installs so the process was kind of a pain in the butt for me without having a vice grip to hold the clubs. I am not changing the grip on my woods yet they are both new and I wanted to try the irons and wedges before adding it to the driver. I am suppose to play this weekend for the first time with the grips. Looking forward to it and will update.

Sidewinders look super promising! Curious the testers preferences on grip setup/wraps? Anyone planning to reduce taper on the trail hand?

Congrats testers! Grips are something that I've overlooked and haven't given much thought until recently. I'll be looking forward to see how you all get along with these star grips!

Congratulations @BreakfastBall15 @LeakyValve @Alf. S & @EugeGall! I can't wait to hear how these hold up for you all. I almost got a full set in orange a week ago but decided to wait and see what you testers think. I will be watching 👀😂

I am planning on installing using the air gun. After watching the video on the star grip website, it seems very me proof.

I'm debating on it. My driver currently has +2 wraps with a GP tour velvet 360 midsize and enjoy it, however the rest of my clubs are Lamkin z5 midsize with standard wraps. I may install one grip normal on an iron and another +2, go to the range and see how they feel, and go from there. Good news is that with the air gun it is a very simple install/uninstall without having to cut the grips.

Be installing them myself. Never used air before, so going to have to get a compressor but still going to do a couple with  tape and solvent to ensure they are durable during the re-gripping process.

Congrats, testers. As someone who puts on new grips each year, I'm eager to hear how these hold up and whether you can truly get multiple years out of them.

Planning to put the “ease of install” to the test and do them myself!!
