Golfers know that holding onto a golf club is Vclubshop critical to solid contact with the golf ball. If your grips are worn down or damaged, replacing your golf club grips is what you need to do. But do you know the best golf grip for your golf clubs? Can replacing golf club grips be easy to do and inexpensive?
It is important to keep your golf clubs in good working order. If you are playing over 50 rounds per year, replacing golf club grips needs to be done yearly so these golf clubs do not twist in your hands or worse, fly away. You may have seen ads for Winn Club Grips, Golf Pride Grips and Lambkin Golf Grips, some of the top golf club grips available. What are the best golf grips for you?
It will depend on what you want to pay and how you want to have those grips installed on your golf clubs. There are golf shops and stores that will do the install for you and if you are not good with a utility knife, wrapping tape and lining up the grip on the shaft, you may want to have them do it. You will pay as much as 2-2.5 times more per grip for this service.
With grips costing anywhere from $2.95 to as much as $10, replacing golf club grips can be expensive but it is easily done by yourself with time and patience. Your a golfer, so I know you have patience? It is a simple process and you can do it. Once you have purchased the grips you want from your store of preference, The Golf Warehouse is where I go, you will need a few other materials to Vclubshop do the job.
Here is a list of what you will need to complete the job;
Golf Club Grips – 13 for your set of golf clubs and one for the putter if needed
Utility Knife – somewhat sharp
Table Vise – not necessary but makes the project easier
2 Towels – this can be a little messy process so doing the work in the garage is better
Here is the process for replacing golf club grips.
- Place one towel over the table vice before Vclubshop placing the shaft within (make sure the club head points to the sky and tighten the vise, not extremely tight-if you don’t have a vice, then you will need to hold on to the clubs with your hands and feet
- Cut the old grip off of the golf club
- Moisten the old tape and strip it completely off the golf club
- Wipe the shaft clean with a little bit of mineral spirits
- Measure how far down the shaft the new grip goes by setting it adjacent to the shaft
- Wrap the shaft with the double sided tape, begin down the shaft approximately ¼-inch from where the grip extends too
- Remove the protective cover from the tape as you wrap up the shaft
- Moisten the tape with the mineral spirits using your fingers and a little dab will do ya
- Pour very small amount of the mineral spirits inside the new grip, make sure you plug the hole at the top end of the grip with your thumb so it won’t spill out onto the front of your pants
- Thoroughly shake the grip so the interior is wet-Led Zepplin in the background works well here
- Push the open end of the grip onto the shaft and rotate as you move it down the shaft until it is on completely-don’t force or the shaft will pierce through the closed end
- Find the small notch located on the small end of the grip and line it up with the club head
- Rotate the grip back up slowly to straighten out the grip, keeping the notch aligned with the club toe
- Wipe all excess mineral spirit off the shaft and grip
- Let stand over night-the club, not you.
There you go; you have successfully replaced the worn, no-good club grips that were costing your strokes with the best golf club grips chosen and you saved some money in the process. Congratulations!
