I regripped my irons and woods. The woods came out perfect. The irons(ping G5) did not. The grips felt soft and loose. I have regripped many clubs and never had an issue. I used grip tape purchaced at Dicks Sporting Goods and mineral spirts. Removed them and went a totally different route. I used carpet tape putting extra wraps on and charcoal lighter fluid. Using a very small amount of fluid. Same result. Got the grips on ebay and the local pro said he thought the grips were defective. Got a refund from a very cooperative seller and have purchaced more. Have not installed them just wanted to see if anyone had this issue and maybe some advice.

Is the core size on the grips matching with the shaft diameter? Some are .580 while others are .600"

I use .580 on everything, as I prefer a bit of oversize. To use a .600 grip on a .580 shaft requires a minimum of two extra wraps of tape just to get the grip to a standard .900 installed size.  If you only used one wrap, then the grip was 1/64 undersize.

Here's a handy chart for determining how many wraps required for different grip/shaft sizes:
