What pressure (PSI) did you use and how'd you put it on?

 

I'm leaning towards user error. But contact PURE and show them. They may just send a replacement.

It looks like you left the double-sided tape on the clubs from the previous grips?  I'm guessing (because mine did some similar things) that as you were installing it, because of the sticky tape, the air got sealed in for a sec and before you had a chance to withdraw, it exploded?  That almost happened to me as well, but I was quick to release the trigger and it turned out ok.

 

It's also probably going to do that when you try to take these off because of the sticky tape.  Just be aware and go slow.  Lots of short, quick bursts.

Oh yeah, I didn't notice that. You're right.

 

Part of what makes the PURE Grips awesome is that they don't need tape.

Yeah, good tips from @Golfingdad here.  I almost did it once as well, but that was more because my air compressor has about double the PSI that you are supposed to use.  I have not blown one up yet but definitely get that tape off first.

There was no tape on the red one I was doing exactly what the videos said to do. But good news after putting it on and being very lose. After an hour or two it shrunk back down to size and is fine now!

That is why it is always good to use quality rubber!

OK, so it didn't actually tear ... that's good.

 

Like I said, mine did that too a couple of times when I was taking them off (to install the Niions for review) so before I put them back on I replaced the 3 wraps of double sided tape with one wrap of painters tape. :)

 

Hope you like the grips!

I just got my grips and gun and had a hard time getting the first one on but found if you start the grip and hold it close to the shaft and push as you let the air in it goes on pretty easily.

This maybe a little late for a reply but I just came across this thread. I live in Southeast Georgia where the humidity in the spring and summer stays around 80-90% and my grips get pretty sweaty so I have used a simple solution to clean my grips for a few years now. I mix comet cleanser and water into a paste and then scrub the grips with a non-wire club brush. rinse them and tehm let them air dry. The grips are super tacky and clean as if they were brand new. No solvent or greasy feel. Just clean and tacky. Hope this helps.
