I was told that I really didn't need the vice, so I did it without and now I see no real reason to get the vice unless you're working with multiple wraps of tape and the grip is really hard to get over them.

Yeah, I used the island in the kitchen and layed it flat so that I could look straight down the grip and align the flat part with the alignment mark on the head of the putter. I didn't trust myself, since I can't even hang a picture straight, so I had my wife verify the alignment. Then I placed the putter on the carpet and looked down the shaft to make sure. With the Riflescope on the SeeMore, I'm sure it made it a bit easier to ensure it was square.
I am going to order the Winn Dri-Tac midsize grips as a set and do them all now. My Winn Hero Softs are getting hard and worn.
