I've seen some with no tape and some with a single layer of tape.

I do it lengthwise, one on top, one underneath.

Duh ... where do you think I learned this??  :beer:  Except you are sloppy about it and have blue tape sticking out the end of the grip down the shaft ... I'm too anal to allow that.:-P

 

The reason why this made sense to me is that it seems like you'd have a hard time not folding or bunching the tape when you put it on "sideways" to the grip.  Seems like asking for trouble.

I just got my Prue Grips Pros and wow they are very nice and do feel a lot stickier than the Golf Pride tour velvets.  I put one on quick (I have company coming over so Im probably not going to be able to do anymore until saturday or sunday) and It was very easy once the grip got started.  I did it in my living room I didn't even have the club in a vice or anything. I just stood it up and started going.  I like the looks of the green a lot and cannot wait to hit them and see how they feel.  Thank to everyone that recommended them.

I don't use a vice either.  One thing we have to be careful of is that you get the grip all the way on, it's easier to do when the club is in a vice.  Sometimes you'll find that there's a 1/4" - 3/4" gap at the top which you might feel collapse a bit in your hand if you grip towards the end of the club.

maybe a little late, they are a little softer than niion but alot more tacky, I think the 3gn feels a little softer than Pure but same tackyness! Im more happy with Pure than both Niion and 3gn... I found the 3gen a little to soft and bigg in the butt, and I found the Niion slippery when I got really warm in my hands..

I think you'll like them.

 

I guess they've stopped giving the gun and attachment away with larger (10+?) grip orders… bummer.

$150 seems high, not sure if that's installed or not.  Pure DTX are 5.50 each, so  14 grips should have been about $85 max with shipping.

On pures website dtx are 8.99 and pros are 7.99. And the gun is 40 I think
post #85 of 109

You can find the grips for $5.50 each and the gun is $34 where I buy them from.

Ya I actually cancelled my order. Golftown has the gun for 35(5 bucks cheaper) and I got one pro and one dtx to try. Then I'll order whatever I like from golfsmith even tho they don't have all the colors
