Regripping cost

8 posts in this topic

How much is it to regrip an iron set? I'm looking to buy some used clubs but the grips are pretty beat up. The clubs are cheap because they look bad, but i'm pretty sure with a good cleaning and regrip they'll look good as new.

With the cost of the grip and regripping, it could run anywhere from $5 to $10 per iron, unless you want to get into really high-end grips (which I think most find unnecessary).

Most will charge whatever they charge for the grip. Do it yourself. It's a piece of cake. All you need is a razor knife, lighter fluid (not much) and 2 sided masking tape.

I respect your thought process about buying a used set. I have no problem with buying used, but factor in these post-purchase "mandatory costs":

Figure around $4.00 per grip (using Golf Pride Tour Velvets as a general rule/price) and $1.00 per club for loft and lie check (check only). Loft and lie ADJUSTMENT is around $4.00 a club (meaning, if that 4-iron is abnormally 2-degrees upright that means the clubmaker will charge you $4.00 to bend it back to standard/your specs instead of $1.00).

You like those grips? Buying a set of MP-32s at a bargain price for $200 from some booger-picking scratch golfer that has warts all over his hands? Nice standard grips, sure, but he also liked three layers of tape underneath those "plenty of life left in them" grips?

And his playing partner once ran over that 9-iron in the set -- right over the hosel -- with the cart?

Factor in the costs of getting them checked out by a clubmaker. I guess that's what I'm saying. :)

I also vote for doing it yourself. I had my first clubs regripped by a shop and they charged $2 per club for installation plus the cost of the grip. I got them back and they looked like crap, there was solvent all over the grips, they didn't clean em and they weren't even centered. It was terrible. I told myself never again will I get my clubs regripped by another person...so I did some research and did it myself.

I was quite surprised on how easy it really was. If you have the right supplies/tools, regripping is a great way to personalize your own clubs and get some self satisfaction that you did it yourself.

Here is a link that helped me tremendously and it was all I needed before I tried it myself. Follow the instructions and get the necessary supplies and have fun!!! Good luck!

I had 10 irons regripped with Golf Pride Tour Velvets for 50 bucks including installation.

    • I think an active lead knee (or both knees) certainly helps with sequencing. In order for the knee to move forward and around (and straighten) it helps for it to gain some flex and rotate internally on the backswing. Creates some "flow". I basically described what I mean by active knee movement in my previous post in this thread. Like I said, doing the knee stuff in of itself might not be the answer, have to consider how the torso is working to facilitate the motion/pieces. While I love Jack's swing and think there is a lot we can learn from it, he was a special players and he would have been just as good with a swing where he kept the lead heel planted.
    • Quality over quantity! I understand the concept, but 2 grand for 3 wedges? There's no way they out perform vokey or any of your other major wedges enough to warrant those kind of prices! That's just my opinion. You're 100% correct there are people with money to blow who will buy them just to say they did. IMO it's all about the player. Spieth for example could take any wedge and most likely perform better than I ever will be able to. Which I'm sure you will agree to some extent. Just blows my mind at the cost! 
    • I'm still putting my money on you being the bigger head case.  
    • The dude has won 2 majors with glaringly less talent than the other top players....I don't think that happens to a head case. People tend to think otherwise at times because he wears his emotions on his sleeve so vividly, but Spieth's mental game is still more of an asset than anything else for him IMO. With his relatively limited talent, you don't accomplish things that only Jack, Tiger, and Seve have done if you're truly a head case. Reality vs. perception difference here.
    • The site of the 2017 U.S. Open is near my old stomping grounds...I was born about 30 min. away from where Erin Hills was eventually built.  I moved from that area long before the course was even planned, so I've never been there or played it or anything, but I learned some interesting things this evening. I have a good friend up there who works for a limo/shuttle company, and he has been driving people from Madison, Milwaukee and O'Hare to Erin Hills for several days, and he made several comments on how remote the golf course is.  It might not be exactly in the middle of nowhere, but apparently a short drive would get you there. There is only one way in, and one way out.  And these are country roads, not four-lane highways. They announced this site would host the U.S. Open in 2010...seven years ago, and they couldn't get a better road system in place?  I thought that was one of the things that they took into consideration when they scout potential sites?  It sounds like this course was earmarked to host USGA events before it was even built, so if they set out to design a course that would one day host a major, why wouldn't the road infrastructure be included? Anyway, the course itself is a monster...or at least can be, when the stretch it out.  From the blacks it plays 7,800 yds, but it looks like it will play about 7,700 during the tournament.  All four par 5s are over 600 yds, two par 4s are over 500 yds, and two others are over 480.  This is the first time in many years the course will play to a par of 72, which actually gives the guys a chance to make up some ground.
