super stroke grip

8 posts in this topic

can you get a super stroke grip off without cutting it?? regular grips are easy, but jumbo grips are hard. i can't even get my grip remover under it to squirt some mineral spirits. i wanted to save it.

I had a Winn Jumbo Pistol on my old Ping putter I wanted to remove. What I did was:

- Bent a wire coat hanger in half and slid it in a little, then squirted mineral spirits in and let them soak into the grip tape.
- Pushed the hangar in more and repeated until it was down 2/3 of the way.
- Squirted more mineral spirits in, left it a minute or so and twisted the coat hanger back and forth which basically tore the grip tape off in wet chunks.
- Twisted the hanger round a little and kept repeating the above until it finally loosened enough that brute force twisting removed it from the shaft.

Took about an hour in total I reckon.

If you have a compressor, and depending on which superstroke you are using, maybe try a quick blast of air in the end.  May provide enough separation to get mineral spirits in and allow the grip to slide off.

I use the superstroke slim and installed the grip using air, so they do expand a little.

the grip is the big one. 3.0 i think. i'll try the mineral spirits and the coat hanger. I have a long grip remover, but it's too thick. the air doesn't seem to work with putters because it just escapes thru the putter head. you can't build up any pressure. i tried it. regular irons work good.

Have never had air escape from the putter head, what brand do you have? I swap out all my Super Strokes (3, Flatso, Jumbo) a few times a year on several different putters. Just use one wrap of masking tape and air it on and off easily.

Seems OK to use as little tape as possible with the putter grip. One strip of tape for a 5i might not work so well.
